Where Have I Been?!

About a year ago, I got the opportunity to start a job at an amazing store, Kenneth Cole in Soho. The past few months the store has been liquidating, and last week the store officially closed. Through working there I have made the most amazing friends and had so many great experiences.

But when one door closes another door opens. Starting Monday, I will be interning as a fabric assistant at an awesome design house. If you haven’t been reading my blog for awhile, you wouldn’t know that I started a new major this semester: Fabric Styling at FIT. Through this internship I will be doing some of the things I have been learning in my classes.

I will try to post more, about fashion and my experience interning. And I can’t post a blog with including some outfit inspiration, so here are some Fall looks I have been wearing the last few weeks.

Let Me Live

As the summer is coming to an end and school is about to start again, I wanted to take one last adventure with a friend. What better place than Adventure Aquarium in Camden.

IMG_1904

I went with my friend Tommy, who just started his own blog called Let Me Live, so go check out his blog and give him some love!

IMG_2016

Tommy and I went to high school together, but now he is a student at Monmouth University and he is studying Business Administration with a Concentration in Marketing. As a student, Tommy has his own unique style and I decided to ask him about it.

IMG_2002

What does “style” mean to you?

“Style is when someone has his or her own uniqueness to their outfit. Everyone has style, but everyone has different kinds of style, if you know what I mean haha. For example, I wear a lot of t-shirts but I choose to buy the ones that have graphics or writing on them because even though it is a basic t-shirt it adds my personality on the t-shirt.”

IMG_2048

How would you describe your personal style?

“If you know my personality, that is how you would kind of describe my style. I like cool colors and graphics, but also clean cut clothing so nothing too big or nothing too tight. I try to be comfortable as much as possible in my clothes but still look decent in my clothes because why wear something that is not comfortable?”

IMG_2115.JPG

What is one piece of clothing/accessory you can’t live without or has a special meaning to you?

“For some reason, I always have my backpack with me. I always seem to have something to carry, either it is a book or my laptop or even my friends’ personal things. Also, since I have an Android phone, people never have my charger so I always just put it in my backpack just in case.”

IMG_2192

Tommy and I had so much fun exploring the aquarium and the Waterfront in Camden.

Here are just a few of the pictures from our trip.

It wouldn’t be a Style Student post without outfit details!

My white and blue romper is from Old Navy.

IMG_2119

I decided to pair the romper with my favorite summer accessories which you have seen in posts before. My sandals are from TJ Maxx and my bag is from & Other Stories.

Be sure to check out Let Me Live, Tommy’s blog, and read the collab post he wrote on there!

If you like these kind of collaboration posts where I ask my fellow students questions, let me know and I will be sure to do many more.

Sephora Play Box- August 2016

Am I the only person who didn’t know Sephora had a subscription box?!

If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you would know I was subscribed to Ipsy Glam Bags for months and I would do reviews each month. I was staring to get bored of the products that Ipsy was sending, so when I saw the Play Box on Instagram I immediately looked it up on Google.

IMG_1868.JPG

For the same price as Ipsy, only $10 a month, I decided to cancel my Ipsy subscription and subscribe for Sephora’s makeup box. I am so happy that I did! The August box is my second from Play, sorry I didn’t review the first!

IMG_1866.jpg

First of all, the box it comes in is adorable with black and white stripes! When you first open the box, you get a pamphlet with 50 free rewards the next time you are at a Sephora store.

IMG_1872.JPG

When you open the pamphlet, you find all the information about the products and tips on how to use them.

IMG_1877.JPG

Like Ipsy, you get a little makeup bag or pouch with each box. This month the bag says “Wink outside the box” with some winking eyes. Last month was a cute popsicle for summer.

IMG_1879.JPG

The first item I pulled out was the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. I love trying new mascaras! I am pretty sure I haven’t tried the Perversion mascara yet, but I know Urban Decay has amazing mascaras that I have loved in the past.

IMG_1891.JPG

The next product I received was the Sephora Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear in Love Affair. I am so excited to try this waterproof eyeliner. The pretty plum color is great for a colorful smokey eye.

IMG_1888.JPG

Next is Make Up For Ever’s Artist Shadow in I-544. This color is going to look so beautiful with the Sephora eyeliner, mentioned above. I have never tried Make Up For Ever eye shadows but I have heard the are extremely pigmented.

IMG_1880.JPG

I love trying out new eye creams. This Algenis Eye Renewal Balm is suppose to help reduce dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles. While I don’t suffer with most of those, I believe it is important to start protecting your skin early.

IMG_1892.JPG

I know Lancome has great makeup, but I never tried their skin care. This Smoothing & Glowing Liquid Care Moisturizer is infused with goji berries and lemon balm to help your skin. I can’t wait to try this instead of my normal moisturizer.

IMG_1884.JPG

Along with the 4-5 products you receive, you will always receive a perfume to try out. This month was the Clean Reserve Warm Cotton scent. I love clean and fresh scents, so this scent is right up my alley.

IMG_1895.JPG

So far, I am loving my Sephora Play Boxes and can’t wait to see what the September box has in store, stay tuned for my review of that box. Again, it only cost $10 a month!

Let me know what your favorite subscription box is, I would love to try some new ones.

Vacation Diaries: Missing the Beach

It has been about a month since my last post, and I am so sorry. After getting back from vacation I have been swamped with work and preparing for the upcoming school year. I did want to share one last outfit post from my week in Brigantine.

IMG_1692.JPG

I found this dress at a cute shop on the Ocean City boardwalk when my parents and I spent the night there, I wrote a post about our night there. This purple off the shoulder dress is perfect for day or night. I tried to keep my look casual for a day out in the town. I paired the dress with these lace up sandals I found at TJ Maxx and my Raybans. I kept my makeup simple with just some BB cream with SPF and mascara, I don’t like feeling cake faced while at the beach.

IMG_1671.JPG

As much as I miss the relaxing beach and hanging out by the pool, I am very excited to get back to New York City for my third year. In just one short month, I will be reunited with the big apple and you will obviously come along on all my adventures. Stay tuned!

Life Update & OOTD

First of all, I’d like to say congrats to anyone who has graduated this spring! I just graduated myself with my associates degree last week, and will start my bachelors degree next fall. Check out my blog post talking about school here.

Today I wanted to give a little bit of an update to you guys! As you guys can see from these photos, I am not in New York City anymore. I have moved back home to New Jersey for the summer. I originally planned to stay in the city for the summer and continue working. Luckily, I was able to transfer to a store close to home.

If you didn’t know, I work for Kenneth Cole. This outfit is actually what I wore to my first day working at the new store yesterday. It was great day, and I am so excited to meet and work with a new group of great people this summer.

IMG_1230

My top is a Kenneth Cole button up that has slits up the front and back. I paired it with a plain pair of black leggings and a statement necklace for a pop of color.

IMG_1234

I also wore a pair of Kenneth Cole platforms and my favorite Ray Ban sunglasses.

IMG_1248

I am so excited for this summer. Expect tons of fun blog posts! If you don’t follow me on Instagram @styledstudent, I post photos all the time and you can stay updated with when new blog posts are up.

May Glam Bag Review

I finally received my May Glam Bag from Ipsy. If you haven’t read my past reviews make sure to check them out, I review and give my first impression of each product.

Click from March and April Reviews!

If you haven’t heard about Ipsy before, it is $10 a month and you receive 4-6 products to test and a makeup bag. For the next 48 hours, there is no wait list to subscribe, so sign up for next months bag.

IMG_1197.JPG

This months bag was travel themed and a new shape. Instead of the normal makeup bag, Ipsy decided to go for an envelope bag with images of the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, an elephant, and other fun places.

IMG_1182.JPG

This first product is something I have tried before. The Smashbox X-Rated mascara. I love Smashbox products especially their mascaras. This will be perfect to have for vacation this summer, I’ll have to keep myself from using it until then!

IMG_1184.JPG

The second product in my bag was the BelláPierre Cosmetics Nude Gel Lip Liner Pencil. When I first opened this lip liner to swatch, the tip of the product broke off, so I wasn’t very impressed with that. But after resharpening the pencil and swatching it, the pencil seemed very creamy and was a your lips but better color. Apparently this product is waterproof, so I hope it will be a nice liner for nude summer lips.

IMG_1185.JPG

I am super excited about this next product I received in my bag, the Épicé International Hydrating Mask. My skin gets super dry during the end of spring and summer, so having hydrating masks around is always nice. This is the perfect size to bring with you on any trip you have coming up to pamper you and your girlfriends. I can’t wait to try this mask.

IMG_1188.JPG

If you have read my past Ipsy posts, you know how much I love receiving brushes. This Slmissglam Small Contour W07 Brush will be great to apply bronzer for a natural bronzed look. I might also try this brush for highlighter. I love the white and pink bristles and gold detail, its so cute and super soft!

IMG_1190.JPGIMG_1191.JPG

I’m not sure how I feel about this last lip product. The PEEK Beauty
nom nom natural lip plumping balm in Miracle is a gluten and cruelty-free product. I don’t normally go for plumping lip products, but I am interested to see if this will actually make my lips look fuller. It smells really good though, so that is a plus.

In total, this isn’t my favorite Glam Bag… I am excited for the brush and face mask, but the other products didn’t excited me too much. Maybe once I try them I will change my mind.

I would love to know what you go in your Glam Bag this month or if you aren’t subscribed, let me know if you are interested in trying it out!

The High Line

One of the perks of a photography class in New York City is visiting fun places around the city. My class recently visited the High Line, one of my favorite spots.

IMG_0636.JPG

IMG_0639.JPG

If you have never heard of the High Line, it’s an old train track that was built in 1934 but stopped running in the 1980s. In 1999, the Friends of the High Line was founded by Joshua David and Robert Hammond. Residents of the High Line neighborhood came together to advocate for the High Line’s preservation and reuse as public open space.

In 2002, the renovations began and in 2004 it opened to the public as a park.

IMG_0640.JPG

IMG_0650.JPG

The wildlife and plants are so beautiful and you forget that just 30 feet below you are cars and tourist rushing around the city.

IMG_0652

IMG_0653

IMG_0675.JPG

My favorite thing to do while at the High Line is to people watch. While many tourist visit and enjoy the park, many New Yorkers can just relax.

IMG_0677.JPG

IMG_0681.JPG

IMG_0744.JPG

It wouldn’t be a Styled Student post without an outfit shot.

IMG_0755.JPG

The top I was wearing was a long striped t-shirt with splits up the sides from Zara, Forever 21 leggings, and my trusty Circus by Sam Edelman booties. I paired the look with a black jean jacket from Free People and my Kenneth Cole fringe handbag.

IMG_0757.JPG

The High Line is such a cool park on the west side of New York City, if you haven’t been there yet, I would recommend visiting.

Always Busy…

 

I know, I haven’t posted in a while! But I’ve been busy… I’m a full time student, I work, and I just started interning.

I have always been a hard worker, if you have been reading my blog for a while you know I have been working since I was a junior in high school. Since moving to New York City, where the price of everything is crazy expensive, I need to work to support myself. I work retail for a large designer brand in their flagship store in Soho, which keeps me busy in my free time and helps pay for things like food, school supplies, and other things. But recently I started interning for a startup called StyleKist, which I work 2 days a week.

IMG_0573.jpg

I want to share what it’s like to work and intern at the same time, while being in school full time.

This semester I am taking 6 classes, including: yoga, handbags, marker rendering for accessories, photography, belts, and art history. It’s a lot of work and I get assigned a lot of hands on projects. I spend a lot of time sketching and coming up with ideas for my next project or seeking inspiration.

I work 3-5 days a week, mostly on the weekends. I work on commission, so in order to make money I need to sell! It can be stressful at times, making sure customers are happy, making sure I made my personal goal as well as the store’s goal for the day, as well as dealing with crazy people. Some of those crazy people are my coworkers, but they just make my job more fun.

About a month ago, I was offered an internship with a startup company called StyleKist. My job is to come up with content, write blog posts, and help with social media. I know, it doesn’t have to do with my major but I wanted to try something and experience different aspects of the fashion industry.

IMG_0579.jpg

While it may be difficult to keep up with everything, I find that being organized and writing everything down helps. I know a lot of people like to use the calendar on their phones, but I think carrying an actual planner keeps me on track better.

FullSizeRender-3.jpg

My suggestion to anyone thinking of working and/or interning while in college, make sure you have the time and commitment. I know plenty of people question whether I can make it work, but so far I have been able to.

Monochrome in the Spring ~ 3.27.16

Happy Easter to all who celebrate it today.

Although I don’t celebrate Easter, I just wanted to share a quick Outfit Of The Day with you that is perfect for the holiday or any spring day.

My look for today is a monochrome look featuring dark denim and this gorgeous white top I found at Express. I also found another top at Express, check out the store because everything in the store is 40% off! This white top has two long panels that flow over the lower cropped section. I love these jeans I found at Urban Outfitters, also on sale! These are the most comfortable jeans I own and adorable with the split detail at the ankle, which shows off shoes perfectly.

IMG_0349.JPG

I added my favorite faux leather jacket that I have owned for years from Steve Madden. The black leather added a little edge to the girly and flowy top.

IMG_0356.JPG

Couldn’t leave the house without some sunglasses. These sunnies were actually a gift from my cousin Hope. I love the shape of these and how big they are to block the sun.

IMG_0352.JPG

I am in love with these new shoes from Kenneth Cole. They are super comfortable because of the wedge and the treaded sole. The combination of crocodile embossed leather and black espadrille wedge is so different and fun.

IMG_0354.JPG

This look is perfect for any spring day, whether you are spending it with friends at brunch or while spending Easter with family.

March Glam Bag Review

If there’s one thing I love almost as much as fashion, it’s beauty. I once asked my mom why I loved makeup so much and she said it’s because “Makeup has no size”. While a cute top may not fit, or a store my not have your size jeans… the beauty counter will always have something that will work on you.

I love trying new products and I found that subscription bags are the easiest way to try new brands. I have been subscribed to Ipsy for a few years now, but have only now gotten to sharing the products with you.

IMG_0322.JPG

This month was called “Hello Spring”. Every month, you receive a makeup bag with products. This month the bag was a super cute combo of teal and hot pink, perfect for spring. I also received 5 products ranging from hair to makeup and tools.

IMG_0329

The first product is the NYX Liquid Suede cream lipstick in 08. I love how creamy and pigmented this lipstick is, I can’t wait to wear this color on my next night out. It is suppose to be waterproof and infused with avocado oil and vitamin E.

IMG_0325

The next product is the Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan Oil . I am very excited to try this, but so far I love the smell and the texture seems very rich on the back of my hand. Since it is spring break, I plan on using this while curling my hair for the perfect beachy waves. It supposedly maintains frizz-free hair for 3 days, so those waves will stay beautiful for the rest of break.

IMG_0332

This next product I am not as excited about, the Beau Gâchis® Paris’ Cosmetic Eyeshadow Brush. I have a lot of makeup brushes, some I prefer to use more than others. I love a shadow brush that is dense and packs shadow on really well. As far as I can see, this brush isn’t very dense. But maybe it will be good for blending shadow, I still need to give it a try. According to the Ipsy review, this brush is handmade and can be used for liquid, cream, and powders.

This Vera Mona Lotus Eyeshadow in Clover is a gorgeous pink-peach. I don’t normally wear pink eyeshadows, but I would love to give this a try. If it doesn’t work on me as an eyeshadow, I would also use this as a blush. This is the perfect travel size product to throw in your handbag for touch ups during spring break.

IMG_0327

Last but certainly not least, the Pixi by Petra Blush Duo in Rose Gold. This blush duo is perfect for a spring and summer glow. I would wear both colors together for an all over cheek glow or use the rose gold as a blush and the champagne color as a highlight.

I am excited to try all of these products this month and can’t wait to see what the April bag has in store for me. If you are interested in subscribing to Ipsy, which I forgot to mention is only $10 a month, you can click here!

Let me know if you liked this review of this month’s Glam Bag because I can certainly start doing these monthly.
