My Life is Changing…..

So, as many of you fashionistas know, I have not posted for about a month now and I feel that I cannot go another day without explaining to you why I have been gone.

In an effort not to drown you in text, i’m including photos of myself from while I was away…..

To begin, iiamcouture.com is changing because, well, i’m growing up and changing. I haven’t posted about fashion event coverage because I have been transitioning into my career. I have been tirelessly working on establishing myself early-on and pre-graduation as a Public Relations practitioner.

Now, onto what I will be blogging about!

In my absence, I snagged an internship with none other than:

Discovery_Communications

I’m nothing short of COMPLETELY EXCITED and can’t wait until I start. I’ll be working with the Director of Publicity and the Public Relations team for:

TLC-HD-logo

TLC is an amazing channel and airs shows like: Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Say Yes to the Dress, My Strange Addiction, etc. I’ll be sure to keep you all updated on my journey through my internship for those of you out there seeking internships-so you know what to expect.

Next, is my baby, my Public Relations firm that I have already begun to craft. I currently have 5 clients:

Karma’s Dance Factory-Dance Studio

Picture 9

University of Taste- Street Wear Apparel Brand

Picture 8

For those of you who want to become Public Relations practitioners, it’s never too early to start. I’ll be documenting my work with my clients as it happens to give you all insight on what it’s like to be entry level in the PR world.

Last, but not least, I will be continuing to post about my heart: FASHION! However, I will be focusing on outfit of the day looks, looks for less, style spotlight and my top celebrity looks.

Thank you to all of my loyal followers who have stuck with me in my absence and , as promised, the giveaway will be posted as soon I get back to Maryland (I’m in Florida now ūüôā )

So stay tuned and enjoy these photos:

Ode to Hayden: Fashion’s Fiercest Illustrator

2

While perusing my instagram account (follow me at I_am_couture), I came across Hayden Williams’s page. I was almost immediately engulfed by his talent and ability to create real-life replicas of some of fashion’s more influential people. I’ve known about Hayden for some time now, but looking at his work that day was different. Every line looked more definitive, every piece looked more REAL, and I was instantly inspired to share him and his talents with all of you. ¬†So, in honor of Hayden and his collection with Sketch Street being unveiled sometime this month, I present to you, a collage of his work from his Blog and Tumblr.

Enjoy:

#PhuckYoApologies: We’re officially UnApologetic (777 Tour)

Rihanna’s album was officially released yesterday, and of COURSE I purchased it like every other Rihanna album

 

 

I must admit, I had way higher expectations for this album. It fell really flat for me. Almost as if she rushed to put an album out just for the sake of doing so. I’m so accustomed to gritty, uncut, REAL albums from Rihanna. Meaning, you can normally feel her soul through her music. I didn’t get that with this album. Some may argue that she is growing as an artist and expanding her craft, but this album was a bit all over the place to me. There were beats with ADHD, moods were all over the place, it was pretty messy: NO COHESION. Not to mention, I found myself getting increasingly irritated when I was listening to the album in my car and discovered that I was already halfway through the album and still didn’t have a favorite song.

Nonetheless, I still like Rihanna and enjoy her music. Since i’m not too excited about the album anymore, i’ve decided to showcase how awesome she is looking on this 777 Tour (Photos courtesy of Just Jared!)

Well, while i’m not admiring Rihanna artistically, I am LOVING her stylistically!

That’s all for now. Feel free to express your view on the album

Kim Kardashian: Look for Less- Classic Chic

Whether you love her or hate her, you still have to give it up to Kim K for her amazing style! I love the way that she constructs her ensembles. They always have this effortlessly chic aura about them. In honor of Kim K’s big 3-2, I’ve decided to feature the fashionista in a look for less post.

If you know me and are familiar with my style aesthetic, then you know that I am OBSESSED with classic looks/colors with a hint of HARSH, i.e. a seemingly simplistic ensemble with a spiked boot or a red lip are signatures for me. With that being said, I chose two of Kim K’s more recent looks that stuck out to me and are aligned with my style that would not be hard to replicate:

Taking her new Kitten to the Vet. I adore the ankle length pants.

Airport photo op. LOVING the Gold T-Strap Louboutins

Then I went on the hunt for items that are ALL UNDER $50.00 to recreate the looks: Enjoy!

Look for less: All White Everything
