BAROQUE JACKET DETAIL

I purchased this lovely jacket on sale last year before I knew what baroque was simply because (for lack of better words) it was pretty. Ah, so pretty. This was the first time I whipped it out of the closet. I can't wait to wear it in different combinations.

Here are some questions I was asked through e-mail, Facebook, and blog comments. Feel free to ask me more. 

Why did you start your blog?
I attended a high school where most of the population came from wealthy families and would strut their super average, but ridiculously expensive clothing down the halls (side note: this wasn't everyone, of course). I would dress up to school and have people compliment me all the time, and then be shocked that I bought most of my clothing from stores like Forever 21 and H&M. I loved to dress and figured if my peers were interested in what I wore, then maybe, just maybe other bloggers would be to. So, here I am. 

How do you take your pictures?
Before I came to FIT, I would set up my camera on some ledge, put it on self-timer, and take some shots posing nonchalantly as the occasional neighbor would pass by. This isn't really fun, but it did teach me how to be more aware of my body. Now, I have so many talented photographers around me, and some are willing to take photos for me.

Where are you from?
Right now I am located in NYC, but my ethnicity is Lebanese.

What do you like most about FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology)? 
I love that am I surrounded, for the most part, people who are passionate about the fashion industry and share similar aspirations and dreams as I do. All my classes are aimed toward getting the job among graduation. No bullshit. Well, just a little. But I also love being in the heart of NYC. So many opportunities based on location have come my way.

What was the most challenging adjustment?
Just being away from home was the hardest thing to deal with. All the familiarity and love I was once surrounded by is thrown away for a foreign environment. Thankfully, I've made friends and have now found FIT to be a familiar place.

How old am I?
Just your over ambitious 18 year old. I was 17 when I started Spoonful of Diamonds.

Do I work?
I used to work in a dress boutique back home, but in NYC I now intern with EngieStyle, a personal styling company. I think I love my internship more than school itself! 

XOXO S.
