New York Fashion Week Wannabe

chic outfit, street style, edgy, fashion blogger

I can’t say it’s “always been my dream” to go to New York Fashion Week, but ever since I entered the world of fashion blogging in 2016 and started following certain bloggers religiously, I’ve had this itch to partake in the madness that is fashion week. I mean, you get to dress up in fancy (and a little crazy) outfits, you tour around NYC in the true New Yorker chaos, and you get to experience high-end fashion with some of the most stylish ladies on the block. Sign me up! Fashion Week officially starts tomorrow and ends on the 14th. So until I can snag a plane ticket to the Big Apple (oh, and a few tickets to the runway shows), I decided this year I would create my own street style look that I would be wearing at NYFW if I were going. Paparazzi, please no photos! Continue reading “New York Fashion Week Wannabe”

{Click} “Work it work it!” {Click click click.} You guys…photoshoots are not just for models, high school seniors, and bloggers anymore. Before I started Graceful Rags back in 2016, I wasn’t that into photos unless I was being a tacky tourist and trying to make it look like I was “holding” the Seattle Space Needle (you know, those pictures that never turn out how we want them to?). BUT then I came to college and met my roomie/photographer/partner in crime Piper and found out that she likes photoshoots too…for no particular reason other than that they’re fun. Now, she’s converted me to loving photoshoots as a pastime instead of just something I have to do for my blog (I can neither confirm nor deny that we have a running list of shoots we want to do over the next year…). I am now convinced that photoshoots are not just an activity but a way of life. Am I being dramatic? Yes. But are photoshoots good for the soul? Absolutely, and here are seven reasons to explain why.
