How to Wear Monochrome in the Fall

  It has been five months since my last post—what!? I am now writing to you from the other end of the country—in NEW YORK CITY. I apologize for my (very, very, very) long hiatus, but I finally am settled in here and ready to start this new chapter of my life—AND a new chapter of my blog. Three—Two—One—Take off! Prior to these last few weeks, the idea of leaves changing colors in the fall was mystical. I had only seen pictures, but my generation is pretty crafty with Photoshop, so it took ...

How to Style a Fanny Pack in 2015

The other day, I went on an adventure and this is what I wore. At first glance, your initial reaction might be in regards to the black leather pouch (ON SALE RIGHT NOW!) strapped around my waist. To that I say: THE FANNY PACK IS BACK! While in search of something that would hold only the necessities in a convenient manner, I stumbled across the American Apparel fanny pack, which succumbed to the aforementioned requirement. After purchasing said fanny pack, my closet experienced a fanny pack cleanse, which—much like a juice cleanse—involves ...

How to Wear Art to Go Look at Art

People travel worldwide to visit art museums featuring artists from every era. My take was to not capture just the art as the museum has already accomplished, but to fixate on what was admiring the art, and how the two together create their own sort of art. However, due to the incessant narcissism that has penetrated our culture and my Instagram, I’m the feature of the photographs—the one admiring the art. Going in to the museum with this intention, I wanted to compliment details of the pieces with my outfit—my ...

Punk Rock-ish

    If you’re reading this, I’m back. Blogging hiatuses are what one may call “my thing.” While they are never intentional, sometimes life gets in the way. The lovely people in my life have a funny habit of always making themselves my priority and in the process, Briana Augustina (the blog not the person) gets put on the backburner. In this transitional period of my life, I always fall back on doing what I love and while thoughts of ending my blog have periodically crossed my mind, I always determine the ...

Chanel Fall 2015 @ Café Chanel

Karl Lagerfeld has an enticing way of making Chanel appear ordinary by placing his models on seemingly average stages. Fall 2014’s collection dazzled a grocery store where Cara Delevingne strutted down grocery store isles searching for Chanel milk. Probably 1% because that is arguably the best percentage of dairy. Spring 2015 was presented in the midst of a Women’s Rights protest where in the mix, Kendall Jenner held signs for gender equality. Fall 2015, however, was revealed in nothing less than a Parisian café designed exclusively for Chanel. Models, rather than ...

Photo(booth)shoot

Remember when Photo Booth was very much a thing around 5 years ago? Well, I (hopefully along with other people) think it’s time to welcome Photo Booth back into the norm. Hopefully Photo Booth pictures from 7th grade—or your equivalent of an awkward stage—with your best friend are of you throwing up the “peace sign” or smiling with braces. All complete with the Thermal Camera effect (that SUPER appealing one that makes you look green and blue!!) However, my approach to the Photo Booth renaissance is to implement the aesthetic appeal ...
