Finger Waves:

I've been meaning to get more experimental with my hair now that it's a tiny bit longer. This morning I had some fun with bobby pins and pulled my hair into a messy faux-updo and topped it off with a wreath headband. I've spent this evening watching video tutorials on how to make 1920s finger waves. I've always loved the style and I think that it would flatter my little mini-bob. I cant wait to look like these beauties...

Expect a beauty post soon!!

The Latest:

Last week was absolutely wonderful! Here's a recap of all that I was up to:

-Fantastic Flash-Mob on Monday with the help of GFW models and photographers and UF Coveted List

-The Gainesville Fashion Week/UF Coveted List Fashion Show Tuesday night! This was so much fun! All of my best friends came out to support me and we got the word out to UFs campus about Gainesville Fashion Week! The show was so much work, but it was an incredible experience to get to plan, promote, and execute a fashion show from start to finish.

-Wednesday Night: a few on-campus interviews and then another fabulous GFW model rehearsal

-Thursday night was Dahlia boutique's Genetic Denim trunk show! Dahlia was packed with beautiful dresses and incredible jeans. I left with an adorable hot pink dress that I had actually pulled for Tuesday night's fashion show! I'm thinking Dahlia's fashion show will be the perfect night to debut it...

-Joanna Newsom show on Friday night was incredible! She was so wonderful, now I need to learn to play harp!

-Saturday: recovery. I spent Saturday night helping out with BobbyK's video shoot. I'll tell you this much...his fashion show is going to be amazing!!

I'm really looking forward to everything that I have coming up! Here are links to some of the stories that were published about Tuesday's fashion show along with some photographs from last week (stolen from GFWs fan page). Hope everyone's having a wonderful weekend! Next week I'll be able to reveal a little secret that I have planned...

Weekend Voyage:

I'm about to depart for a weekend trip to Atlanta with my man-friend. We're looking forward to eating at our favorite bistros, consignment shop hopping, and listening to the sweet voice of Joanna Newsom. I'm looking forward to the chilly evening and wearing an ultra-feminine outfit. Think Parisian-blue capelet dress with Sam Edelman bow flats and Betsey Johnson bow accessories placed throughout. Oh, and my faux-fur coat! It's been a long, busy week so this mini-vacation is just what I need. Here are some photos of Joanna wearing two of my favorite designers, Rodarte and Alexander McQueen.

Have a wonderful Friday, everyone!

Gainesville Fashion Week & Coveted List Fashion Show:

Good evening, darlings!

I'm exhausted, but in such a fantastic mood because I have fabulous news to tell you! It is regarding the event that I've been planning for a few weeks now. If you live here in Gainesville, then definitely come out tomorrow night, March 23rd, to the Gainesville Fashion Week-Coveted List Fashion Showcase!! The event will be held at the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom from 7-9pm! I can't emphasize how much hard work my team and I have done to put on this event, and we are soo happy that it is finally here! Today we had a really successful "flash-mob" event in the Plaza of the Americas, and tomorrow is the big show.

Here's a little info about the event:

Our goal was to put together a showcase that all women on UF's campus could relate to. The show consists of outfits that flatter all body types, heights, and skin tones. There will be 25 looks that are spring-inspired and ultra-feminine. The great part is that the event is a "sneak peek" for Gainesville Fashion Week, as the looks were pulled from boutiques and fashion designers that will have their own runway shows during the April GFW events. The best part is, it's free! I really hope that you'll join me tomorrow evening for the event!

We will have my personal favorite DJs, Thomas and Ernie, playing bangers throughout the night. There will be a little red-carpet entrance, tons of photographers, and the most chic guys and gals in town present at the event. You can also learn about Coveted List, which is an amazing website that I hope to work with in the future. Looks were provided by Dahlia Boutique, Wolfgang Boutique, Mesh Boutique, and designer BobbyK.

This past Saturday, I held the fitting for the event at my apartment. We had soo much fun styling looks for the fashion show and working with our wonderful models.
Here are some snapshots from the fitting:

I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with such an amazing team of girls to put together this event, and the models are also fantastic! Trust me, tomorrow's event is going to be one to remember! Hope to see you there!!



P.S. Check out tomorrow's campus edition of the Gainesville Sun to read an article about the event and yesterday's flash-mob.

P.S.S. If you're near the Reitz tomorrow, GFW and the rest of the event team will be tabling with flyers and treats! Stop by and see us!

Rainy Days:

The past two weeks have been such a whirlwind!

Paris was an absolute dream come true. There are so many pictures to sift through, but I'll show you guys some of my most treasured memories from the trip soon. I went on so many adventures, including a quick shopping trip or two.

Since Paris, I've been incredibly busy studying for exams and planning an on-campus fashion show for next week! I've been super involved with extra-curriculars lately. What can I say...I'm a girl on the go! Unfortunately that's taken quite a bit of my free time, but the benefits have been so worth it! Gainesville Fashion Week is coming together beautifully, I have two big interviews coming up for campus organizations, and guess what....

I got my dream internship with Urban Outfitters!!!
It looks like The Tonnish Touch will be reporting from Philadelphia this summer!

Everything is finally falling into place, and I couldn't be happier...

Here is an outfit that I wore on a rainy day this week:

Wearing: Rodarte for Target lace halter dress, sheer tights, American Apparel ruffle socks, Vintage oxford booties

I've been having a lot of fun experimenting with hosiery lately. When I saw these adorable socks in the window at American Apparel, I had to hop in and make them mine. They remind me of being a little girl playing in central park after school...
I thought that pairing this otherwise ultra-girly outfit with my boyish booties would be a fun. Can you tell by the monochromatic color scheme that Paris had an impact on my style?

So many updates, so little time!
Expect lot's to come, darlings!
