Today I took the Metro into DC and every time I am in the underground I always take notice of the high ceilings covered in what I always thought of as bathtubs. The entire ceiling is created with large rectangular indentations that get smaller as the ceiling turns into the walls. For some strange reason these always look so beautiful to me(:
I recently discovered an amazing underwear brand called Pull-in. They carry underwear, swimwear, loungewear, and clothing for men and women. I was pleasantly surprised by their graphic and bold prints and thick elastic waste band. They have so many kinds of prints, most are photos, making them even more interesting. My favorite are the cupcakes. They are so adorable!! I also love the iPhone apps, Harajuku print, and donuts. These are really a unique underwear brand that brings a whole new level of playfulness! If only they weren’t $30 each. Le sigh!
I have recently been craving a Tea-length skirt (a skirt that hits the calf, approx). I used to have a foolish opinion about them, and saw them as granny skirts, something an 18-year-old should never wear. However, lately I have seen the beauty and sophistication that they exert when draped elegantly over a woman’s body. I like that they are becoming increasingly popular for younger women because it is a nice (and needed) change to our generation of overly-revealing womenswear. I think a high-waisted flouncy tea-length skirt is just what I need to compliment my favorite black iced tea!
I cannot believe that I have already completed one year at Parsons! I have really learned so much as an artist. This experience has made me even more in love with New York City!! I love the energy and the amazing food! (Halal Chicken over Rice I miss you!) Seriously, it has been two days and I already miss it. It was extremely stressful at times (I’m convinced I have two new white hairs because of finals week alone ugh!) but I still enjoyed every second of it. I loved meeting so many wonderful artists and growing as a person. I love my roommates and definitely would not have survived without them! I will remember all the late-night Halal cravings my roommate and I would have…and we would just run out and get some. (I know, totally unhealthy, but delicious!!) Also, Sundaes & Cones, the adorable tiny ice-cream shop near by, what my roomie and I call our date place hehe. And, of course, NY Tofu House!! I cannot even remember how many times I had frequented that place in the past year…but their soondubu jjigae (tofu soup) is excellent, every time. With all the yummy food aside, my year was so much fun!! I loved going out in the city, drinking coffee daily (although now I am experiencing withdrawal), working in coffee shops (The Bean, Think Coffee, I adore you!), listening to amazing bands at the Highline Ballroom (Raul Midon, Lucius, and Cœur de Pirate!), walking the Highline, gallery-hopping in Chelsea, Chelsea Market shopping, Washington Square Park-chilling, and doing candle-lit yoga every Sunday night. Going to the Evening of Schiaparelli and Prada at the gorgeous Metropolition Museum of Art was the perfect ending to a great year. I cannot wait for the next three as I continue to improve my skills as an artist! NY, I love you and miss you! Until next time, ♥
