Next year I will be attending the SCAD Fashion show. I am so regretful that I could not buy a ticket this year. I stumbled upon these illustrations of a few looks from the night on the District’s website. If you are a SCAD student this is the best outlet for news and photos of what’s going on around campus! Luckily my best friends, Harrison and Isabelle, work for the District so I get to see a little preview before it even goes up (; Oh the perks of being friends with photographers. To see more first hand what happened on this magical evening check out Emilie’s blog post. I am knee deep in a self portrait for my drawing final as well as a fun design project that I will be sharing once finished. Have a great day!

Today I bring you what I think is the best giveaway yet on the LCC. Some of you may remember my previous post about my collaboration with this wonderful California based line.. I am so excited to share with you that De L’avion is offering one lucky reader this adorable fringe bag in their choice of color! This tote is perfect for any summer dress, or even your denim in the cooler seasons. So adorable, I have to say I’m jealous of whoever wins this one! All you have to do is go to my Facebook page today to see how to enter. Happy Monday everyone I am working on a special upcoming post as I type this.
*Special thank you to De L’avion*
So I shared earlier this week that the exquisite Bryan Boy would be coming here to SCAD. I am so thankful that this school has the best connections and constantly is holding lectures and events for those in all majors. Listening to what Bryan had to say was so incredibly inspiring. BryanBoy gets nearly 2 million page views per day, he has 20,097 likes on Facebook, and 398,799 followers on Twitter! He started his blog while still living in the Philippines at a very young age. He described it as an outlet when he first decided to travel to Russia for a month. He said that it was the easiest way to stay in contact with everyone at home. This is so true, I have talked to many people from my hometown who say that they keep up with the new adventures I have going on here at school through this blog. I hope to continue to keep people in the loop about this, and eventually inspire people to get out and live their dreams too! Bryan’s love for fashion was clearly expressed and admired. When someone asked him if he was to do any more design collaborations he discussed his love for the business aspect of this world, and how if he was to collaborate in the future it was going to be for the long run. This man not only loves what he does, but has such a great handle on how to balance the two sides of fashion. Not only must you love what you’re doing, but the fashion world is all business. If you don’t know how to handle this, the fashion industry is honestly going to chew you up and spit you right back out. I am so thrilled I got to attend this lecture with Bryan, and will definitely continue to check his blog regularly. He is such an inspiration!

Happy weekend everyone! I can’t believe time here in Savannah is going by so fast. I know, way to bring it up yet again in a blog post but time is just flying by! This white maxi that my mom bought for me in downtown Savannah is the perfect dress to transition throughout the day. I started off going to class in the morning heat, brought along a jean jacket to slip on for my adventure to the mall with some friends, and then a sparkly clutch to spruce it up a little for night. A jean jacket is a great way to make any dress a little more casual, or even a darker wash for night! And y’all know how much I love this rose gold Marc Jacobs clutch, I mean I did rant about getting it for 70% off! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.. PS, don’t forget to follow me on Twitter to stay connected with all the fun events going on this weekend!

I shared earlier why every blogger should have a media kit, and got a lot of good feedback from sharing. Tonight I decided to share what readers of any type of blog want. As bloggers, we owe as much to our readers as we do to ourselves. A lot of these things sound like “DUH” but you’d be surprised how many blogs lack these qualities! So here’s what they want:
1. Honesty. If you are blogging just for the profit, well you should just quit now while you’re ahead. HA! We blog because we love it! Not to make money! Keep it this way!
2. Consistency. Between your blog design and layout, posts and post series there should be some theme tying them together.
3. Fresh Content.
4. Credible Information.
5. Great Visuals. Visuals are everything! How are you supposed to attempt a DIY if you have no idea what it’s supposed to turn out like?! Not to mention when it comes to outfit photos, visuals are what make you stand out!
6. To Be Entertained.
7. Something they can’t get anywhere else. For my blog, I share all of my great friends photography, as well as interviews with fellow bloggers and artists. These things are something that are unique to MY blog! Find yours!
I am so excited to share with you all my experience at my first blogger event, RentTheRunway’s Summer Pop-Up Showroom. I was invited to this event thanks to the girls of the Southern Blog Society. It was such a pleasure to meet up with some of my fellow SBS bloggers (like Natalie, Jewel, and Mandy), as well as meet new people in the crazy fashion industry. I instantly clicked with the two lovely ladies pictured above, (ugh staring at the sun makes me look like I have a lazy eye!).I got to drool over all of the designer dresses, especially this one and this one. Not to mention, RentTheRunway was generous enough to hand out adorable canvas totes with a gift card inside. I will be saving this for a wedding that I will be attending in November. I can’t wait to plan out my wonderful outfit for the night thanks to RTR. If you have not heard of their website, RTR provides a wide collection of dresses, shoes, and even accessories from the hottest designers for your upcoming event. They send you your dress, plus all the extra essentials for your night out, like Spanx and Fashion Tape. Then after your event you send it back to them in the easy pre-provided envelope! How amazing! Join todayand tell them Taylor sent you! Special thanks to RTR again for the wonderful event, as well as The W Hotel Atlanta for having us!
