As if its not obvious by now, I'm a fashion student. Just take a look at my sidebars... I go to FIT (the Fashion Institute of Technology) in New York City, and its completely 100% the BEST FASHION SCHOOL. Trust me on this one- Donna Karan and Michael Kors are both Alumni, as well as many others.
Well, although I love my school, I also love my boyfriend, who (obviously) doesn't go to FIT. He lives in Hoboken, about 10 minutes outside of the city. I practically live in his dorm room. His friends are my friends, and when I walk around his campus, its a rare occasion that I do not know at least 50% of the people I pass by.

So, since I'm almost never at FIT, I'm pretty out of touch with campus events. In reality, FIT's campus life isn't really that big anyway. I mean, who really wants to hang around at some lame movie night when you could be out clubbing at Webster Hall or Pacha? No one. So, it was quite surprising - to myself and many others - that I actually attended an FIT event yesterday.
The event was Cirque Du FIT, a carnival on 27th street between 7th and 8th Avenue. It was exclusive to FIT students only! I went with my friends Jen (City Style) and Sara (Sara Pollack). There was a fashion show, tye dying, Pita Grill, a chocolate fountain, Vitamin Water, and soooo much more- I tried a 'fried oreo' for the first time!!
Here's a picture of me that was taken at the event:
P.S. Like my dress? Well, I'm thrilled to say that you can look forward to my first "What I Wore" post in the near future, featuring my entire outfit!
