This Week in Fashion

Well this was an interesting week. As many of you know I've been a bit unhappy with my situation at work (too stressful when it doesn't need to be that way...not a good environment,) well last week one of my bosses and I came to an agreement about my hours. I'll be leaving at 3:30 each day instead of 5, so hopefully that helps, if not I'll have to come up with another solution. This way I can focus a bit more on fashion during the day because my dream is to work in fashion, most likely web programming (front-end). It's going to take a lot of work and maybe some online courses in fashion history, etc. but I have a feeling some big changes are on the horizon!

Anywayyy, this week was odd in other ways too. On Monday night there was a huge brush fire in my town and I didn't hear about it until a friend called to see if I was okay, luckily I was... I went outside and the smell of smoke was in the air as well as ashes falling from the sky. The fire was far away from me but it was really windy so the ashes were flying all over the place. It was so eerie!

This weekend I'm planning on doing some major retail therapy. I have a 25% off coupon for Lord & Taylor (and 10% off cosmetics) so I see some awesome new clothes and perhaps some more Chanel makeup in my future! And maybe a stop at TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I also have $40 for DSW!! (and grocery shopping...haha)

UPDATE: Bloggers, rejoice! I am no longer a shorts with tights virgin!  Ever since I bought these Zara shorts I've been wanting to wear them with my Moschino jacket as sort of a pseudo suit, but the weather has never been just right. But today I decided that I would bite the bullet and utilize one of the trends I was always afraid of to make it work before it's too hot for the blazer: shorts with tights!  What do you think, is it okay?... (the colors match a little better in person, ha ha)
