And can I get a round of applause to one of our fashion bloggers here on Within The Seams? Emily Siu has finally graduated with a bachelors in Fashion Design! We could not have been any happier for her! Keep your eyes peeled for photos of her portfolio booth (although I did take photos…there were way too many who photo bombed them so my photos don’t do her booth any justice, but there is a sneak peek of it below). For now check out her website! Isn’t it adorable? Catch Emily on her personal blog here and her Pinterest here. We love you Emily! Congratulations!

A sneak peek of Emily’s booth at the Portfolio Show! Isn’t it adorable?! I apologize for the low quality image. I tried my best to take a snap shot before a potential photo bomb. This is also a glimpse of Emily’s senior collection for the fashion show tomorrow evening! I can’t wait to see what it’ll look like on the models!


Michelle’s Dosage of Business Casual

Hello everyone! It’s been quite a while since I’ve last posted – I apologize! School and work has definitely caught up to me and my sleep and now that I am fully recovered from the boo-hoos of stress, I have more time blogging here on Within the Seams! I want to do something a little different by posting up a weekly segment called “Dosage of Business Casual.” I’ve always wondered what you could wear at work during casual Fridays (or whatever day your casual day is on). Here’s my take on it! Disclaimer: Not all work places allow this much fashion-creativity so be inspired at your own risk!

What is she wearing: Madewell denim shirt / Zara heels (similar here)

Nothing screams casual than denim on denim. I am in love with Robin’s ability to rock a quarter-tucked denim button down with a pair of Zara sandal heels makes this an effortlessly chic look – perfect for casual Fridays.

What is she wearing: Shareen Vintage dress / Christian Louboutin heels

If wearing denim on denim is a bit too much for you, you can also go for a very feminine vintage piece. This number is from the oh-so-loved Shareen Vintage that Karla is absolutely obsessed with! Take a gander at her DIY Christian Louboutin anklet on her Piagelle heels!

What is she wearing: Goodnight Macaroon top (similar here) / Helmut blazer / Reed Krakoff tote / J. Crew shorts / Zara sandals

Annabelle is amazing when it comes to coordinating her outfits. It could possibly be her tall, lean figure or the fact that she always has such amazing subtle yet sexy eye make-up on. Following on the neon trends for this Spring/Summer, she is wearing a simple ensemble with a pop of neon from J.Crew. I absolutely love her metallic Reed Krakoff tote bag and her chunky Zara heels!

What is she wearing: Madewell top / Paige leggings / Zara tote bag / Alice + Olivia heels
(Images from Wendy’s blog post here)

Wendy is constantly playing with prints. Can’t be caught wearing the same boring trousers as someone else at work? I’d say go out and pick yourself a pair of these Paige leggings (or if you’re crafty enough – make your own)! I love the tie-dye print and the fact that Wendy paired it with bright crimson heels from Alice + Olivia!

What is she wearing: H&M sweats (similar here) / H&M blazer (similar here) / Forever21 sandals / LES vintage tee (similar here)
(Images from Jinna’s blog post here)

And if all fails, just wake up from your slumber and toss on a blazer. Nothing says grunge chic like wearing sweats, DIY studded sandals, and a blazer. I absolutely love how Jinna made her sweats look like they were intentionally color blocked from her asymmetrical vintage tee!

I hope everyone has a fantastic week!
