The Bones Are Alive.

As you may know, I'm currently at NYU taking classes over the summer through a Pre-college program.
I'm taking Sociology and Forensic Anthropology. And although I enjoy Sociology...Forensic Anthropology, is my passion. In case you don't know Forensic Anthropology is basically the study of human skeletal remains. Forensic means law. And Anthropology is the study of humans. You may be familiar with the show Bones... which is going to be ME in a couple years. Anyways, I thought it would be awesome to do a post on the influence of bones, skeletons, and skulls in fashion. Especially since I currently have a bones tank top coming in the mail that I'm more than thrilled about, and that I will feature in this post.

The Reality of Neverland...

Hello All. It's Alie. And currently I'm in New York City, I was accepted into the NYU Pre-college program, and am currently taking Forensic Anthropology and Sociology, and while the course-load is difficult it is also extremely rewarding. I will be here for the next month, but the program itself is 6 weeks long. Before I left my hometown of Boulder, Colorado, I purchased a dress from, I had been eager to get a dress with a "Peter Pan Collar" and the moment I set my eyes on this one... I knew it was necessary that I purchased it immediately. A few days prior to me leaving for NYU, I was walking around Boulder with my cousin when I realized that as excited as I was to be in New York City, I was scared out of my mind. I was going to be completely on my own. Part of me felt like I was like Peter Pan, like I was stuck in this "Neverland" and didn't want to have to face the challenges of growing up and moving on. So, I thought "what perfect timing, since after all i did just get a peter pan collar dress!". And who doesn't love a good pun!

The Bikini Lifestyle

Recently, I took a trip to Boca Raton, Florida with my dear friend Leah. It was one of the most relaxing and restful vacations I have ever been on in my life... and I definitely wish I was still there right now. So, this post is dedicated to my fashion decisions (and some bikini shots since that's what I wore most of the time) made while staying in my favorite city ever.

Railroad Tracks and Fedoras...the Indie girl lifestyle.

Recently, I had to go to a town called Erie which is, in my opinion, very barren and abandoned.
Every time I go there, I can't help but think about how depressed I would be living there.
There's something about prairies and open plains that makes me uneasy...
must be my inner city girl personality.
Anyways when I went there, I came across this abandoned railroad and barbwire fenced off area.
I thought it would be a perfect place to feature the edgy and indie style outfit that I was wearing that day.

Teal, A Blonde's Favorite.

Teal and Turquoise are my favorite colors... ever.
My room is currently being redone that color and it's simply perfect.
There's something very therapeutic and calming about it.
Not to mention this color is 
excellent because it looks good on everyone...
especially blondes.
At least that's what i've found over the years.
So, the other day I thought I'd pair the teal with other natural tones for a classy look.
