This weekend I took a brief trip back to my hometown Argyle, in Manitoba, Canada. A very different landscape from my current Upper East Side neighborhood in NYC, visiting my friends, family, and dogs back in Argyle is always bittersweet! I loved seeing everyone but I'm back in the city now, ready for my first full summer in New York! Here are some photos from my trip back home:
My house back in Argyle. We live on 160 acres of forest, quite different from my home here in New York!
The treehouse my dad built us when we were little. So many great memories here!
I always love coming home to my dogs! Miley left and Deke on the right.
This is Tay - he is very photogenic.

I've been so excited to share this project with you guys! I developed, styled, and directed a creative fashion video for one of my classes
with the help of my boyfriend Clay (cinematography and editing), and my friends Claudia Rummel (cinematography) and Kelsey Panicco
(model). Named after Led Zeppelin's 1975 studio album, Physical Graffiti is an editorial video for a fictional trend consulting agency
that highlights the current influx on 1970s style. Watch the video and please share your thoughts!
(Intro song "Saint John" by Cold War Kids, main song "Light of the Morning" by Band of Skulls)
I hope to collaborate on a project like this again in the future. And let's chat about my
amazing model-friend Kels, isn't she spectacular!? See some still shots I took at the shoot below.

Thanks again to Clay, Claudia, and Kelsey for helping me with this project! I'm so happy with the final result, and really loved
the entire creative and directorial process. Perhaps I have a future in fashion and film? No limits! xo Nia

I'm obsessing over this editorial of Kate Moss for Vogue Paris (May 2011), shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
We had the iridescent Margiela skirt (picture 2) in at ELLE while I was still interning there - such an amazing amazing piece!
See more of this editorial at Fashion Gone Rogue. Have a great weekend! xo Nia

Clay and I spent the afternoon snapping photos in Brooklyn Heights, a gorgeous culturally diverse neighborhood in Brooklyn. If you're ever
in NYC, you have to take a trip to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade which is lined with beautiful rowhouses and brownstones, lush gardens,
and flanked with an amazing view of the Lower Manhattan skyline.

I just picked up this MAC amplified finish lipstick 'Vegas Volt' and the bold coral hue is a welcomed change from my typical pink or red.
I'm on the hunt for some great new shades, so if you have any suggestions, let me know!

After what seemed like an eternity of grey skies and rain showers, we finally had an amazing sunny day in NYC, so Clay and
I ventured out to Coney Island in Brooklyn for some beach-side fun!
Can you believe this is the first pair of jeans I've bought in the past FIVE years?! Loving the '70s flare - I need more denim in this style!
H&M jacket ● Zara dress (worn as tunic) ● H&M jeans ● Aldo wedges ● Bebe hat (borrowed from Jaclyn)
We stopped for some hot dogs, fries, and lemonade at Nathan's. Yum!
It's finally spring break for FIT students, so I'm going to take advantage of my (precious) free-time and explore the city.
More photos to come; hope you all had a fantastic weekend! x Nia
