Editorial of the week: couture dreams

Ling Yue is a model I’m not too familiar with, but I quickly forget that upon scanning these photos from the October issue of L’Officiel China. Aptly titled couture dreams, the editorial entrances with dreamy haute couture looks from the Fall collections of Armani Prive, Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture and Chanel Haute Couture, just to name a few.

Mission and a Vision

Ever since freshman year, I’ve made vision boards for myself. I think it’s one thing to think about what you want, but another thing to see those goals and dreams everyday as you get one step closer to achieving them. I’m in the process of redoing my vision boards (I try to update them every few months because what I want often changes/gets clearer) so I’ve been perusing…
