As Seen On...

Today we have a lovely lady who stopped into the boutique where I am gainfully employed...


I loved how she combined dressing one's age (though truthfully, I would definitely wear this!) and playfulness. I loved all the different colors she had on -- peacock blue flats with studs, turquoise beads, raspberry glasses frames -- and her pairing of leopard and navy, one of my favorite combos.



She's killing me with this bag!

Vest: thrifted. Dress: Macy's. Boots: Doc Martens. Bag: vintage Dooney and Bourke, thrifted.

Also, before you, the very first way in which I actually wore my Docs, out to the mall where I haven't been since I stopped working at A Large Department Store in March.

Wanna hear something crazy? When I worked at this Department Store, they somehow found out about my blog and pointed me to the employee manual where it is expressly forbidden to blog about the Department Store (never have, and may never do it in the future, because you never know what bridges you might be building or burning online).

Some time ago, I did a post about whether I wasn't being enough self-revealing here. My brother said the blog would be a juicier read if I did. But, I am extremely aware that we live in a time when information can be gleaned and used for any (on or offline) purpose, and I am also someone who does not strive for internet superstardom like Tila Tequila or this one chick who was profiled in Wired magazine this month that is famous for posting salacious rumor stories about herself on Gawker.

After some soul-searching (I can be very impressionable, ask anyone who's seen a movie with me), I've decided that juice is not my game. Sharing inspirations, photos, dreams, memories and fashion aspirations and getting feedback is so utterly awarding on its own. Thanks so much to everyone who posted their wonderful comments on my previous post!

I ADORE HER. I can only hope to be so chic at that age.

Good on ya for sticking to your blogging boundaries. Writing about anything outside your comfort zone would feel unnatural anyway, and who needs THAT?
