I'm Back...More or Less!

I am one bad blogger. I cannot believe it has been nearly 2 months since I last posted. Absolutely horrible. In my defense, it has been crazy around these neck of the woods. Work is getting in the way of any semblance of a real life for me. Working 40+ hours in a job that is technically "permanent part-time" with no PTOs or any benefits is really taxing. Have I mentioned how much I loathe retail? And during the holiday season? I feel it is mandatory every single person work retail sometime in their lifetime. Maybe then they wouldn't treat everyone who currently works there like crap. I thought this was going to be the job that was going to be my launching pad but not so much. Dontcha just hate it when nothing turns out like you had hoped? Hence the reason for my lack of inspiration and in turn, lack of blogging. I just haven't been feeling it. Not even the glorious thing we call Fashion Week could get me thru it. I am afraid this job is going to make me hate fashion. And that would pretty much kill me.

So, enough about me. How is everyone? What have I missed? Catch me up!!

I've missed you : )

To get back in the groove, here's a new little discovery and something that makes me happy:

Don't you just want to live here? This is the fabulous little nugget Edon Manor, a boutique in TriBeCa. I could stare at this picture all day. If only I had known about this while I actually lived in NY. Damn it!!

Yigal Azrouël Spring 2010 RTW

I have been a long time fan of Yigal {it helps that he is a gorgeous man who just happens to be straight!} His lines and structure are immaculate. I love this muted palette of grey, black, and nude with pops of color {be sure to check out the gorgeous orange number down below!} This collection reminds me a bit of Alex Wang but it is still stunning and I would buy each of the pieces I selected from his Spring Collection!

{perhaps one of my all time favorite LBDs}

{love this flowing white jumpsuit. the cut is flawless!}

{unique colors and patterns, and love this layering. And the shoes are killer!}

See entire collection right here!

All is Not Lost!

So my beloved Macky (aka my Mac computer) decided to fail at life this past week and a half. She felt as though she could no longer go on. Thankfully, I have brought her back to life and she is now in full and working order. My deepest apologies for the lack of blogging! How I have missed it so! Next to come....

New Choos Revealed!

{Photo and story here}

So, we all know about the H&M - Jimmy Choo colabo coming up right? Well the first photo has been leaked....thigh high leather {I assume?} round toe boots. I'm not so sure I'm too excited about these. And...for $345. At H&M? Really? I know they're Choos but isn't the point of H&M colabos to be present designer fashions at a more reasonable price point to the masses? Personally, I think it's still a little steep for something we can find somewhere else for less, I'm sure.

Sorry I've been MIA. MAY-JA issues at work. Just having been feeling the bloggin' lately...I'm trying to push myself thru to get to the happy side again....
