feature in a Korean Magazine

So a few weeks ago I shot a few photos in my apartment for a Korean Magazine. I am pretty stoked about it. I havent received the hard copy yet but when I do I'll be sure to share it with you all.
This is my second magazine feature...the first being Avision Magazine.
Kinda cool considering I'm still a blogging rookie or atleast I think
Here are some photos from the shoot

I did an interview about what I think the Fall Fashions will be for back to school.
I'm still in shock that they wanted to use me for the article.
Hope they like me over in Korea!

the seasonless dress

This is one of my favorite dresses in my wardrobe. I got it at one of my favorite stores in NYC named
 Vintage Thrift. They always have a great selection. What I love most about this dress is that it is seasonless. I will show you all the ways I've worn it!

Dress: Vintage from Vintage Thrift
Necklace: Mango..ugh i love it soooooo much get it HERE see more of my necklace collection HERE

Rocking my summer night time look right now. I usd to hate the smokey eye but I think it works for me. So check out how I wore this same dress is the Winter time. Mango is so on point with their jewelry selection right now! Here are some Mango Necklaces I'm going to add to my wardrobe soon: The Senda Necklace, The Medala Necklace, and the Medera Necklace!

monroe's work out plan

thats right put in work, eat that salad no dessert...WHAT no dessert???efff that!
A lot of you have been asking about my workout regime so I put together a little outfit post to show how I keep in shape. To start off I take a lot of outfit pictures standing on one leg in high heels to increase my calf strength and balance. hehe
Notice my MAC & Milk T-Shirt from my first ever IFB Conference. So stoked for IFB next month..blogger extravaganza!
I drink mostly water. I gave soda up for lent and just kinda never really drank it again. I find that drinking it out of a wine glass makes it taste better. It's also helped a lot with my acne. Yes I have acne..and I dont photoshop my pimples out either. lol.

The only real exercise I do is on my Wii Fit and my favorite is the hoola hoop game. It really gets those abs tight and works out your legs too! If you don't have Wii just get a hoola hop!

Theres that one leg stance again..while washing
I balance huge september magazine issues on my head while walking in 5 inch heels. I also lift them up and down to build up my biceps. no flappy arms for me!

Next up I live in a 5th Floor Walkup. So I get a workout for my legs atleast twice a day.

Lastly, I do not deprive myself. I eat cookies, ice cream and cake all the time. Sometimes for dinner.

No but really I don't exercise other than my Wii Fit. I do a lot of lifting and walking for work which is why my arms are so buff. I actually try not to do too much lifting because I dont want them to get too buff (gross).
I'm sure at some point I will have to start exercising for real...but until then I'm relying on my good genes and high metabolism.

where did that circle come from

I have a new thing for jumper suits. Got this sweet baby at H&M! I bought it to wear to a special event but ended up wearing something else. I definitely HAVE to STOP doing
I'm going to make a conscious effort not buy any new clothes (cough: jewelry doesn't count cough:cough).
Just need to stop telling myself 
 " need this for fashion week!"

Jumper Suit: H&M
Shoes: Top Shop see them worn differently HERE
Necklace: Random
Sunnies: Thrifted at The Vintage Twin Event
Vintage Purse: Thrifted from the Brooklyn Flea Market

isn't that little white circle cool? i dont know where it came from but i sure didn't mind posing inside of it! haha. I've been getting request about my fitness regime so I will post about that soon.
My fashion week scheduled has really filled up fast. I'm going to do my best to get my experience to you all in a timely manner. I will be doing some videos, regular post here and facebooking and tweeting a lot.
