Hey everyone!

Here is a video of all the looks I put together for my fashion show, “Persephone.” All the clothes are from my closet and Value Village (thrifting finds) that I just mixed and matched and put together.

You don’t have to buy the most expensive clothes to dress and feel chic; you can be fashionable by wearing clothes under $10.00 and/or by cutting up your grandmas/moms old clothes! (Literally what I do all the time)

Anyways loves, until next time! Hope you’re all enjoying your long weekend!

Persephone Fashion Show


Hey loves! It was a crazy week last week with preparations for my grad fashion show and getting all my styled looks together. Although, I finally did it! I am proud to announce that I have officially graduated Fashion School and now have a diploma in Fashion Business & Creative Arts. 

Above is a picture of 3 out of the 8 looks that I styled for the show. Basically the show involved light garments that slowly faded towards dark garments. I styled looks for the dark side.. of course.. and put pieces together that I found from my own closet, my grandma’s closet and garments I found while thrifting. 

It was such an amazing experience being able to style looks and be a part of a fashion show. Incredible!! It feels even more satisfied knowing that it all went by beautifully and I am done with the textbooks, the paperworks and the projects. 

Stay looking out for more pictures from the show as I will be posting all 8 looks on my blog soon!

Where Art Thou, Davneet?

Hey guys! I know, I know— it’s been a while. I’m still alive and nothing much has really changed. There’s just a few weeks of fashion school left and then I’m finally off for a month! I’ve been crazy busy finishing final projects, studying for finals and preparing for my grad classes fashion shows— which I will post about soon! Today’s the last day of June as well— insane! Time sure does fly by, especially when you have so much going on everyday. I’ve also been accepted into Kwantlen Polytechnic University to accomplish “Part II” of my dreams: going to school to study journalism. Sounds exciting, right! Over the weekend I chose my classes for the journalism program and now I am all set to start school in September. I know, that means I only have one month of summer; oh well, I guess I’ll just have to make the absolute best of that month. Anyways, just wanted to make a quick post and update you guys on where I have been hiding the past couple of days. I’ll be back with more inside scoop on the fashion show that my class will be hosting! Until then, stay humble.

Bride, Dress and Wedding of the Year


Elegant, flawless, and impeccable— Kim Kardashian looked absolutely stunning in her Givenchy wedding gown that she wore when she tied the knot just last week with rapper Kanye West.

Everyones been talking about the big kiss, the wedding guest list and the looks that everyone wore. However, the major news that I wanted to hear about was the wedding dress! Kim K wore a beautiful long sleeve dress with a naked back that really showed off her curves and made her look doubtlessly stunning. The dress, which consisted of a mermaid silhouette, was custom made by the one and only, Riccardo Tisci. (Via Givenchy Haute Couture). Mr. Tisci also happens to be a very close friend to the Kardashians. Kim’s hair was worn back loose, which made her dress the focus point rather than her hair and makeup. 

The bride of the year, the dress of the year and the wedding of the year! Stay tuned as the video will be shown on “Keeping up with the Kardashians” on E! television— new season begins tonight!

Big Dreams and Golden Goals

Can you believe May is almost over?! It’s crazy how fast the time flies by. I still remember the first day of January when I was making a list of goals to achieve for this year. (I’m still getting to those goals). Summer is just around the corner and I know a lot of you are graduating very soon from high school or your first year of college. During this time last year I was finishing off my senior year in high school and now I’m on the verge of finishing off Fashion school! When I look back thinking of how I was so scared to get into school, I realize that I made the right decision going to school right after I graduated. I am the youngest in my class, however that just means I have time to do so much more now! The biggest lesson I’ve learned throughout time is that you shouldn’t waste time— if you want something and you’re passionate about it, go after that goal and get it done, before it’s too late! I’m proud to say that I will hold another diploma in July, when I graduate Fashion school, and after that I can start my next goal. As for all of you graduating this June from high school, don’t be scared of not knowing what you’re going to do in the future. Once you step foot into something you like, you’ll begin to understand what you love and hate as time goes by. Remember to dream big!
