"Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees"

" I thank you God for this most 
amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits 
of the trees, & for the blue dream of sky,
& for everything which is natural, which is 
infinite, which is yes."
- E.E. Cummings -

"Forget love- I'd rather fall in chocolate !"

A few months ago, while lost in the city (as usual) Christine & I stumbled across the lovely Artisserie Chocolate Cafe located on 18th Street in downtown Philadelphia. We were so lucky to have found this cafe. The treats are delicious and will definitely fill your sweet tooth! We each opted for the red velvet cupcakes. There is a large selection and I can't forget to mention the prices are extremely reasonable which is something Christine & I both look for being struggling college students, aha! I suggest you all pay a visit if you ever get a chance!

What a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood!

  The weather is gorgeous today! We have finally been given a relief from the weeks of rainy, dreary, cold weather. I decided to go out and enjoy the city before we were hit with our next round of thunderstorms and clouds. Lately, I have found myself confined to the house due to the severity of the weather. Luckily, today I was able to hit up a few local stores and do some light shopping. I am in dire need of a new summer wardrobe!

Now that the semester has ended, Christine and I hope to post more frequently, as we plan to attend more fashion events, parties, etc and enjoy our summer break! We also expect our lives to continue to be very busy as well as we look for more fashion opportunities together. We have sky high dreams we'd love to accomplish under The Luxe Standard and we will keep you all updated with our journey as we propel the "brand" to greater heights. Christine and I are in the works of beginning a small (for now) styling and consultation business. Our first step was ordering business cards, and we are anxious for their arrival so we can finally work towards our dreams of taking on the fashion world as a duo! 

 I wish I had more pics to share, but this is just a quick post before I take a nap. I have a family event I will be attending later tonight.
