Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how straight the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.
Lets just say, I needed THIS Poem!
On another note, I've really been into oversized sweaters lately. I paired this one that I found at H&M with a mini lace skirt that i've had in my closet for the longest time and I believe that this outfit is a perfect juxtaposition of Summer into Fall.
Have a GREAT Week G(ems)!

I've really been loving oversized dresses lately. I just feel like they're just easy breezy when you're on the run and don't have much time to put together an elaborate outfit. I found this Black & White number at Zara and the color blocking is really what caught my eyes.
I was perusing through www.stumbleupon.com and came across this list of 7 Effective
Ways Happy People Think written by MARC CHERNOFF and I thought this would be great to share.

If you are ever looking for Prom Dresses, Evening Dresses, a Dress to wear to a Wedding or even a fancy Cocktail party, THIS is the place to go to in NYC. I remember going to MackTak Mart when I was looking for my prom dress and they had by far the best selection of all the places I went to. It took me half a year to decide what dress I wanted to wear, because of course prom is such a huge deal :). In the end, I was very happy with the dress I selected for prom which was a long champaign gold form fitting dress with an elaborate train at the back. So, when Katrina from MackTak contacted me to do this collaboration, I couldn't resist because I knew and loved this place so much.

Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
Memorize your favorite poem.
Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
When you say, "I love you," mean it.
When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.

I've learned - that you cannot make someone love you.
All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them. I've learned - that no matter how much I care, some people just don't care back. I've learned - that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it. I've learned - that it's not what you have in your life
but who you have in your life that counts.

Over time our personal style evolves and grows up with us. When Nike asked me to stye the Nike Air Force 1's for it's 30th anniversary, I couldn't help but reminisce about my tomboy days in Jr. High and High School, and in that light I had to say YES. Not one summer went by without me feeling the need to get a fresh pair of white on white AF1's (we called them Uptowns in NYC).
