The East Village

Posted on Tuesday, February 9, 2016

Hello, 
Oh did we find a gem! I've become completely obsessed with St. Marks Place (East Village). On Sunday, my friend Emily and I went out to brunch at Cafe Orlin. It is a cute little spot that has a trendy brunch menu. The food and coffee were great! We ended up walking around the neighborhood and popped into a store or two. If any of you come to NYC soon please check out the East Village; you will love it. As you know I like to play with contrasts with my outfits, so I decided to mix materials. My top is silk, my skirt is textured, my tights are half stripe and half lace, and then we have my shearling boots. Some people find that mixing navy and black is a crime... I completely disagree. If the navy is too dark and clashes with your black then you have a problem. New Feature: I added a video clip of our day at the bottom! Anyways, I hope everyone has a lovely week! 

Enjoy,

After The Storm

Posted on Friday, January 29, 2016

Hello, 
As many of you may know this past weekend the East Coast was hit with "Storm Jonas". For the most part I locked myself inside all day during the storm. It was absolutely beautiful to watch the snow cover my entire campus. A few of my friends and I thought that we could not miss the opportunity to take some pictures out in the snow, so on Sunday morning that is exactly what we did. I wore the only boots that I found would be "snow-proof" but being the heels that they are I was faced with a challenge of claiming the mounds of snow. I did not end up falling luckily! I have been really into wearing scarfs lately because I feel that they can add so much to an outfit. This Fendi scarf is my mom's which I found over break buried deep in her closet. I love how graphic it is. I am excited to announce that www.chloeakari.com is now its own domain and will be having additional changes coming soon! 

Enjoy,

In the Desert

Posted on Friday, January 22, 2016

Hello, 
While driving past the many miles of desert in Palm Desert, I had a spark of inspiration come over me. The dull muted colors of the terrain gave me a Star Wars vibe. Danielle and I had just bought these matching Allsaints dresses. I found that their grayish-putty color would go perfectly with the desert backdrop. A cool thing about these dresses is that there are many different ways to wear it. You can adjust the lengths and ways of tying the ribbons to get a completely new look. We wore red on our lips to give a contrast to the washed out colors surrounding us. The sunset that we were surprised with was stunning and had beautiful pastel colors. I am missing the warm weather as I write to you back in New York. 

Enjoy,

Palm Desert

Posted on Wednesday, January 13, 2016

Hello, 
I hope that everyone's year is off to a good start! My grandparents recently moved from Santa Barbra to Palm Desert so my family and I went on a much needed vacation. When I first found out that they were moving far away from the beach I was so sad. Upon arriving to Palm Desert I was pleasantly surprised how beautiful the desert is. The weather was amazing and the views could not have been prettier. One of the days we went to The Parker Hotel in Palm Springs to check it out. The Parker has such a chic and intimate vibe. There is a perfect mix of vintage and modern throughout the grounds of the hotel. I wanted to contrast the colorful and light background with Danielle and I wearing all black. I feel that both Danielle and my outfits reflect the balance of modern and vintage. My mother kindly let me borrow her vintage Gucci handbag for this shoot to go with my various modern pieces I was wearing.

Enjoy,

2015 Unpublished

Posted on Friday, January 1, 2016

Happy New Years! 
2015 was one of the most memorable years of my life. It was filled with adventure and new experiences. This year I have met the most amazing people and seen some of the most beautiful places in the world. I was very fortunate this year to travel to several amazing places. I chose these specific pictures to illustrate my year. While moving to New York was one of the best decisions ever, I have grown to appreciate Chicago more. 2015 will be the year I look back on as my year of growth and appreciation. I have never been happier and am excited to share my future adventures with you. Thank you to everyone who made my year so wonderful. I hope that everyone has an amazing year! Enjoy my year in pictures. 

Cheers to 2016, 

-Chloé Akari
