A LONG TIME AGO (well, May 2011 which isn’t that long ago, but it seems like it’s been a while doesn’t it?) IN A GALAXY FAR, FAR AWAY (and by “galaxy” I mean the District of Columbia, but sometimes feels like a different planet) . . . .
It would be really cool if I could have a scrolling text paragraph here setting the stage for this post and giving you the highlights/low-lights of my last 8-10 months like they do at the beginning of Star Wars. That is the theme I’ve been going with up to this point in case you’ve yet to catch on. Not that this blog is about Star Wars, though I imagine I will be talking about movies from time to time. Wait. Hold on. Look what I figured out how to do!!!!
The new website (and total lack of archive from the old blog) isn’t exactly intentional. In my Wah-I’m-too-busy-and-grumpy-to-bother-with-anything-blog-related funk, I kinda let my old domain name expire and now I can’t seem to access any of my old posts. (Le sigh). [Side note – if any of you WordPress webdesign gurus might be able to help me recover it, please email me. I will hire you!!]
Since the last time I posted, there have been concerts and birthdays and karaoke teams and weddings and reunions and Fashion Week and so much more, but here are a few shots to sum it up.
I’m going to do things a bit differently this time around. I’m not going to write everyday, but promise to keep you posted on goings on in the fashion world like designer collaborations, shopping for a cause opportunities, trends, sales, etc. I’ve had to set my styling and personal shopping biz to the side for now, but I still love to do it when I have time and am planning to do “how-to-wear” posts. So, if you have items languishing in your closet or just can’t picture how to style those wide-leg trousers you’ve been eyeing online, send me your questions! I’ll do a post for you. And there will probably be a whole lot of random going on too. Posts about music, about movies, about concerts, about all the (mis)adventures that make me turn to my friends and say “sometimes our lives are like an episodes of The Mindy Project.” So that’s my plan going forward. I hope you’ll join me on this ride.

To start us off (I know, this post is long, but this is time sensitive), on September 23rd, The Limited’s Olivia Pope, Scandal inspired collection goes on sale!!! Put on your white hats and get those credit cards ready, Gladiators.
Alas, I’m not grown up enough to wear all white (it would be covered in coffee stains and metro dirt by 9:00am), so the white suits are out for me. And I do have some concern that as is, some could make me look like I’m dressing up as Olivia Pope for Halloween, but I’ll nix the gloves and take one of each of these please.
oh and this top too
