This Week in Fashion

  Friday, June 1, 2012 at 8:00 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,,,,,, 

This might be my last This Week in Fashion for a while because today is my last day of work and I won't necessarily be getting dressed every day. BUT you can expect to see a lot more outfit posts around these parts because I will have more time for photos and experimenting with my clothes!  I won't get into the details but the short version is:  I decided to pursue my dream job in fashion so I left my job in order to devote more time to it. This is a very big step and an extremely hard decision to make.  If you want to read more, check out this note I posted on Facebook.

Do you gals have any exciting plans for the weekend? I might go to my brother's baseball game but other than that I don't really have anything going on, surprise, surprise...

Also, my Net-a-Porter sale order was delivered yesterday so I stopped at my parent's to pick it up! Sadly the Valentino heels were too small but the Burberry dress fit like a GLOVE! I am keeping the dress because it was MADE for me (okay, not really...but i love love love it!!!), so I need to find places to wear it! I will probably wear it to my cousin's wedding in July (since I can't wear the shoes, why not the dress?! :) )

  7. I think quitting your job was a great idea. You have to like what you do everyday cause if you dont you just turn into a depressed shriveled piece of poo. You dont want that to happen to you, no sir.

  8. that stripe dress fits you perfectly!


  9. I love Thursday's dress!

  10. Firstly, the Burberry looks great on you. Secondly, I noticed a FB post about you having a last day at work. OMG I need an update. Must email you over this weekend as I want to know what you are up to giiiirrrl! xx

  11. How wonderful that the dress did fit you, but sad about the shoes. Hope you find an other pair that will go with you. And good luck with working with your dream job, I want to do the same one day, combine my skills as an environmental scientist with my passion for fashion. Eco-fashion is something I believe it. But first, I want to finish my studies, and raise my baby.

  12. This is a big step anbd a courageous move. Good luck and that all your dreams become true!
