The "September" Issue

We're not Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington, and this blog is certainly not Vogue, but the issue of "September", or rather "the beginning", looms just as ominously on our horizons for this Rack Diving #14.

Rackstagram: Shades Edition

It's summer, and you know what that means. Aside from sunshine and swimming pools, it also means its the season of sunglasses! This year I may have gone a little crazy getting my corneas ready for the blaze, but it's not like its hurting anyone but haters (yahuuuurd!)


It's been a while, but I've been up to shenanigans and nonsense as usual! Here's a peek into the past few months via my instagram! As usual, I'm at nsq89 on IG!

Blood Ties

In celebration of 1 of 4 finals being taken and put to bed, I decided to take a break from maniacally scribbling flash cards to present to the internet the sublime gift of my little sister's face (and bod).

She's a Bad Bad Girl With a Heart of Gold

As the (school) year winds down, it's time to really press ourselves to the limit and focus on the important things. Thus, I'm going to be taking a bit of a break, the trials of legal study call to me! Anyway, this Rack Diving (#12) takes things back to the night, with a darker look than the last.

Cara Mia: An Ode to Spring

Fast on the heels of our sultry last post is this 11th installment of Rack Diving! This time, we've opted for a complete change in tone and time with a shoot set in the wee hours of the morning.

In the Middle of a Lonely Night

Good Lawdy Wawdy we've reached the big ONE-OH! That is to say 10. Ten whole Rack Diving posts! It feels like way more! I never thought we'd get much past 3, mostly because I'm a hopeless slacker/procrastinator and never get up on deadlines. So sue me. Anyways, these were taken in the DEAD of a cold cold COLD night, and I'm sorry to poor Vikky who put up with my "vision" and braved the chill of my backyard to do this for me.

She so Fly (I know you Jealous)

Bold title aside, I won't claim to being the most sophisticated in making my sartorial choices. I started the (school) year in a very different place, style-wise, than where I am now. I like to think I've evolved, but maybe I just got more clothes.

Artistic Inclinations and Entrepreneurial Spirit

Originally, I started doing these as ways to pass the long (long) hours in my more uninteresting classes. They're basically the SS13 collection of my fictional (for now) fashion line, Whole Milk. Why Whole Milk, you ask? Because the idea was originally born from clothiers like Black Milk, that sell these out of this world pieces but, of course, for smaller people. It's been an absolute trial to find anything at all galaxy print in my size but the internet is fairly exploding with galaxy/nebula print items for straight size girls. I think after a whole year and some of searching, I just finally bought myself of attractive, affordable, nebula print leggings.

We're Bold and We're Bad

The sun was going down and we had to race against it to finish shooting, but the lighting was gorgeous

Lately, and in reaction to the seasonal change, we've all been swaddled up in layers upon layers. In the interest of avoiding frostbite, winter wear tends more towards cover-up than show-out. Now that we've been treated to a few months of ongoing gray skies and bitter chill, I'm sure more than a few of us are ready for the warm breezes and sun-kissed afternoons of Springtime.

Ivory and Tweed

Jacket: Thrift
Dress: Thrift
Shoes: Target
Rack Diving: 09

We stumbled blearily through these shoots in the chill of the desert morning, but we got them done out of love and devotion and now here it is. The miraculous ninth installment of this series on style, Rack Diving!

The Cat's Meow (I Know!)

Sweater: Opening Ceremony
Leggings: I.N.C
Boots: Avenue
Jacket: Asos
Necklace: Montreal Metro Stand

I saw this sweater online somewhere while ago and was instantly in love. It didn’t even deter me when I tracked down its maker and saw the price tag attached to it, I knew that one day I’d need to own it in my wardrobe. Of course, I had the usual worries that it wouldn’t fit anyone even approaching my size, but then I saw it on the endlessly stylish Nicolette Mason and my fears were mostly assuaged. She’s near enough to my size that I thought it would work winningly if I ever got down to buying the thing. After some twists and turns in my road to cat-faced sweater glory, mostly involving mistaken size issues and that one terrible week I thought it was sold out (it wasn’t), finally Christmas came upon me and I knew what I had to do. 
It took a while, but my sweater arrived at my apartment, and I arrived to it primly folded in an express delivery box when I returned from Montreal. Needless to say, I was pretty damn ecstatic. I didn’t do anything too fancy with it for this first casual wear, I’m gonna go ahead and do the whole, white collared shirt beneath the sweater thing for it when next I wear it out, but for this one I kept it relatively simple. It’s extremely soft (EXTREMELY) and very warm. There’s nothing like function joining hands with fashion, this sweater serves me well in the (admittedly unseasonably warm) northeast winter.

A Good Wrap

Rack Diving: 08

So we decided to do something new and post up the entirety of the Rack Diving here on the blogger, pictures and text, while the pictures only go up on tumblr. Seemed like a thing to do. Anyways, we've been pretty absent for a while, and that's pretty lame, but you know school and life got in the way. Winter break was pretty productive, despite the extremely convincing whispers of laziness in our ears, we got a whole bunch of shoots done and they're all pretty cool! So thats for the future! Anyway, let's get down to it!
