Parsons x Teen Vogue | Course 1 Unlocking Visual Style


I just finished course one in the Parsons x Teen Vogue Fashion Industry Essentials Certificate and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was like no course I have ever taken before. I didn't quite know what to expect from the title of the course "Unlocking Visual Style." I didn't know what topics would be covered but the course covered everything from design to media to photography to personal style. 

My personal favourite part was completing all of the assignments. At first, I thought it was quite a lot of them, six to be exact. However, they are fun assignments that engage you to learn. They help you to better understand where we see visual style, which is all around us, and help to develop our personal visual style. 

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed his class but I just wish the video lessons from Parsons Faculty and Teen Vogue experts were longer, as this is an all online program.

I will be back to update everyone in another two weeks after I finish course two - Thinking Like a Designer.

Outfit | Black and White


Today I want to talk about a 'trend' that I personally love which is #allblackeverything and some variations of it. For the past two years, I have worked for the same company and the dress code is all black. Every time I go shopping I always think to myself, "That would look so cute in black and I could wear it to work." I feel like I have lost my "sense of colour" when it comes to styling and buying clothes. So now because of work I love the colour black and wear it with every outfit no matter where I'm going.

This picture describes my life!
No matter what the season is my favourite colour to wear is black. Not in a goth/grunge kind of way but in a classic chic, everything goes with black kind of way. There is just something so simple and easy about black clothing. I feel it just always looks good and you can't go wrong. Just watch out for the lint and hair that will stick to you.

(Available all year round in black and white but comes in seasonal colours)

Some ways to make black less 'boring':
Make it professional: Adding a black blazer to any outfit instantly, makes you look more professional.

Top: Design Lab by Lord and Taylor
Blazer: Vero Moda
Necklace: Forever 21

Tune it to Casual: You can't go wrong with a pair of black jeans; they go with any top or pair of shoes. However, with the right pairing of shoes and certain top you can instantly make black jeans ready for work or date night. But...... There is also the colour white. Again so simple, chic and easy to wear except white bring a clean crisp classic look to an outfit. Just watch out for staining. I can never keep any of my tops perfectly white for longer than a couple of months. 

So, what do I think looks the best together? 
Black and White!

When you pair these shades together you get an effortlessly chic look, that makes it look like you put your out together in seconds. If this simple idea of black and white sounds too boring for your liking but you wanna try the trend; just add statement jewelry to any black and white outfit or try black and white patterns that pop and catch the eye. Also, textured black or white pieces can add something different to an outfit.

I am Starting a Fashion Adventure with Parsons x Teen Vogue!


I applied and got into the Parsons x Teen Vogue Fashion Industry Essentials Certificate a little while ago and I have been eagerly waiting to start. I started yesterday and just wanted to share my thoughts and maybe talk about my experience of each of the five courses.

While I was watching the video lessons it didn't even feel like school. Everything is so interesting. I am learning so much new information about fashion and its only been one day.

I wish the lesson videos were longer so I could hear more about the topics. Personally, for me, if I am doing a program online, learning from videos is easier than learning from typed words. #VisualLearner

For now, I will be a busy bee working away on the assignments, but they probably won't even feel like assignments.  So excited that I will be able to use these assignments in the development of my professional portfolio.

I will update everyone in about two weeks when the first course, Unlocking Visual Style is complete.

xoxo,
Lisa-Marie
