Hey there! So sorry for not being able to update my blog and reply to your heartwarming comments as frequently lately! I just got back from the Las Vegas Magic Market Week just last night and I've been swamped with a tremendous load of homework that is just way too much for me to bear. I've got a bad case of "senioritis". I ended up jampacking all the thrilling and eventful experiences that have come my way in one post. Enjoy! (:
Obviously by now it should be pretty apparent by all things dealing with flowers. I'm more spring-ready than ever and I couldn't resist not wearing my petite, ditsy floral headpiece after seeing countless hipsters stroll around with their crowns around the Vegas Convention Center.
Being the eccentric and melodramatic person that I am, I couldn't contain the excitement that I felt when setting eyes on the incandescent Topshop/Topman sign and starting screaming like a lunatic in the car. I was lackadaisically sinking in the backseat when a switch went off and I knew I just had to go in and happily left with some quality clothes!

After my Nordstrom Internship meeting ended, I decided to advantageously use my discount and old gift cards and purchased the diamond-studded skull bracelet and gold watch for only $2.98!
I would have loved to be able to take more pictures but there was a strict yet totally understandable rule not to take pictures of the product. Instead, I was able to snap some pics of the displays which were eye-catchingly innovative.

Wearing: Aunt's gifted necklace, Nicole Lee belt, F21 peplum, Urban Outfitters sunglasses, gifted bag, F21 shorts, Nine West wedges, F21 collared top, Topshop pants
The overall ambiance of the entire Magic Market Week was compacted with an overwhelming yet highly intriguing energy. Being a high school student, it wasn't exactly evident that I would even be acknowledged in the congested red carpet aisles of infinite exhibits that were meticulously ornamented with flamboyant signs and logos to attract wandering buyers. Fortunately, some companies were extremely welcoming in spite of my young age and my deficiency in holding an esteemed title of what I aspire to become: a buyer.
Companies were peacocking by arranging rotating neon lights, displaying boulder-sized bags only Lady Gaga would be caught dead in, and even splattering paint and pounds of glitter onto random bystanders as a means of artistic expression. As a high school student that gets excited only when a teacher is absent, it was a relief to experience some genuine enthusiasm.
On top of all the avant-garde displays, companies were altruistically passing out alluring catalogues and fabric bags with their enormous logos stamped on them like mothers passing out Halloween candy. I'm overall very pleased that I got to leave with a hefty pile of souvenirs I will cherish (:
In my next post, I will go over all the future trends,colors, and styles of 2013-2014 I discovered in seminars and the styles/trends that I repeatedly analyzed during Market Week! (:
