I remember listening to this Friendly fires song in 10th grade and repeating the chorus in my head, daydreaming, "someday were gonna live in paris, I promise." Well I'm here. It's wild and crazy and absolutely unreal but I'm actually here. This dream I've had for so long has finally come true. My walk to school involves passing the Eiffel Tower, I live right around the corner from the Louvre and Musee D'Orsay, and I have already made incredible memories after only being here for two and a half weeks... I'm not sure it gets any better than this... but it just might. We've got 4 months to find out.

This means there will be some changes to the blog (aside from just backgrounds)... all positive, I promise. There's no way I could be in Paris and not post pictures of the beautiful city itself, so Creative Thirst will no longer just involve personal style photos, but also photos of Paris and wherever else my budding wanderlust tendencies lead me to.

The most magical month of the year is finally here!! My birthday's coming up, Christmas is right around the corner and temperatures have dropped just enough to bring our coats out from hiding. A few weeks ago, this over-sized electric blue coat stole my heart. I tried resisting the temptation to buy it, considering how I already have over 10 coats in my collection and a dwindling sum in my bank account...but I failed. And honestly, I'm ok with that. I've found my new favorite coat and I'm not letting go. Aside from being gorgeous, it's also super warm... finally i get to benefit from fashion and function. For this look I wanted to let the coat do most of the talking and opted to pair it with a crisp, white button up, loose boyfriend jeans and my new flatform oxfords.

in full swing

Fall is in full swing and I couldn't be happier. It's my third year here in Boston, but I still can't get over how magical it is to be in Boston in the fall. Every street is suddenly Instagram-worthy and the temperatures drop just enough for it to be chilly but not overwhelmingly so. Not to mention how much fun it is to start layering again. To celebrate, I decided to throw on this plaid gem with my trusty leather jacket and these gorgeous Banks frames from Warby Parker.

Lately I've been obsessed with brands that have beautiful user interfaces and that focus greatly on elements of design in their websites. Warby Parker is on the top of that list. It's website is clean, easy to navigate and dominated by gorgeous images. Most people are skeptical of shopping for sunglasses online (with good reason), but WP makes the whole process seamless. You've got so many helpful services on the website, you can view the frames in all different angles, you're given details of sizing and materials you can try them on virtually and if that isn't enough to convince you that you've found the right pair, you can use the home try on program where you pick 5 frames and get them sent to you, free of charge. Plus, you've got the added perks of free shipping and free returns.

They've recently come out with their Winter Collection, so if you're looking for some shades to brave the icy cold temperatures with you, I'd definitely recommend checking it out. It features 6 new rich tones and 8 new shapes, stainless steel paired with acetate and fresh takes on their existing silhouettes.

P.S. Their shades look mighty fine in insta pics. See below for inspo.

Today's featured song is "Brain" in honor of the life-changing experience that was BANKS' concert last week. If you haven't heard her, you must, and if you like her songs at all, GO TO HER CONCERT. Seriously, you won't regret it. Aside from her killer vocals, she's the cutest and has impeccable taste. She wore this black cape blazer and rocked it like I've never seen before. Now I want one of my own as you can see on my wish list. This week I wanted to take an entirely different approach on the blog and go a bit more experimental with my styling. The moment I received my flawlessly tailored Lavish Alice culottes, I knew I had to pair them with something equally as magical. So here it is! 

p.s. Also above are some picks from my new favorite UK-based brand, Lavish Alice. If you're a fan of cutting edge, directional fashion at affordable prices, you'll love LA just as much as I do. xx

If you know anything about my style, you'll know that there's nothing I love more than mixing ultra-feminine pieces with menswear-inspired ones. Sweet and delicate vs tough and laidback. So the moment I received this Girls on Film pastel pink A-Line Skirt, I knew I had to throw on my trusty leather jacket for some contrast. What I love about midi skirts like this is that they're so versatile. Pair it with a band t-shirt and sneakers and you've got a casual, carefree look. Pair it with a fitted long sleeve crop top and some strappy heels and you've got a dainty, dressed up approach. Even with my look, I can easily go from day-to-night by slipping into some white pointed toe heels. What would be your approach?
