Last night I went to the most amazing concert that I have ever been to. They are my favorite band and incredible musicians and If you don't know who they are you are missing out!! They are called Beirut, they play amazing music that will change your life. So last night was their concert and it was incredible! I got there really early so that I could make sure that I was close, and I was! I was standing probably two rows from the stage and the music and energy just consumed me. It was amazing. So after the mind blowing concert I really wanted to meet the lead singer, who also plays a million instruments, Zach Condon. So I dashed into the parking lot over to where the bus was and I see him about to get into the bus, so now Im yelling like a crazy person "wait! wait!!" and he does. I feel bad for causing a huge scene because the next thing you know there are a million girls around! He was so nice though and didn't seem to mind, he even waited through my mom trying to figure out the camera and accidentally taking a video! So I got a rather funny picture with him and he also signed my CD! So here are some pictures from the concert, and if you don't know Beirut, look them up!
Me and Zach Condon! I was so excited, hence why I look overly ecstatic!
After posting my previous post, I got into the mood to create another layout. So I jumped onto Polyvore and this is what I came up with! I first saw this photo of Alexa Chung and decided to create an outfit based off of the vibe I got from the picture. This outfit is for a high fashion girl who wants both a touch of class and a bit of edge.
In addition to fashion design, I also really like graphic design. The section of graphic design that peaks my interest the most is creating magazine layouts, and art direction. This is a project that I did for school, I created a magazine page talking about the grungy and girly melding of styles. Let me know what you think!
So sorry that I have disappeared for the past few days! I was not feeling well, then I went to the beach and was preoccupied! In addition to everything that has been going on around me, I have been thinking a lot about this summer, fashion, art, and everything else. I just visited one of my friends from RISD and it made me miss everything, and everyone so much! It is so frustrating being a junior in high school and having to focus on putting all of my time and energy into things that frankly I do not care about and really don't want to be doing. Also, It is horrible having no time what so ever to express any of my creative energy. It is stressful because this is the time that I am supposed to be really working and perfecting my skills, but when you don't have any time It can really get pretty aggravating! I am an art student, I love fashion and art and that Is what I want to spend all of my energy on again. I want to focus on the things that I love and the things that are going to be valuable to me in my life and not these things that will be valuable for someone who wants to live a life that is polar opposite to the one I want. I have less than two years left stuck in this position, and while that may not seem like a lot of time It feels like a million years! I am good at being creative, not being stuck in this factory like system that they call high school. I know that I must still continue to focus and work hard on the things I don't want to be doing but Its a lot harder that I thought It would be. But I am going to jump the hurdle and look at it as one of the many obstacles that I will have to face in my life. I have drive and I know what I want and I am not going to let anything get in my way, especially high school. I am an artist I am a designer and I will be creative!
