A few days ago, I bought a pair of Jessica Simpson heels for, wait for it… $4. That’s right, four dollars. They were 95% off the original price, which is by far the best deal I’ve ever gotten. Side note: I have no shame when It comes to getting a good deal, and will always share about it. Anyway, they’re metallic gold and probably around 4 inches high which means I’ll most likely never wear them but I still think it was worth it.
Also, in regards to luck, today I woke up with 30 minutes to get ready for work and to my surprise was able to pick out an outfit I really liked and have a decent hair day, which obviously are both really good things. However, when I got home from work a few hours later, I dropped an entire burrito on myself which stained my shirt… I should be surprised, but really, I’m not. Oh well, I suppose my good luck could only last for so long.
If you haven’t already, you neeeed to check out the article The Fashion Week A-Z (^see picture above), on vogue.com. It’s the whole who, what, where, and well…you get the point, of New York Fashion Week.
I’m super into this Fashion Week Boot Camp video, by The Man Repeller, Rebecca Minkoff, and Hilary Rhoda, and you should be too. “There is NO crying in Fashion Week.” Amen to that.
With everything that was on T.V. last night I still managed to watch a majority of Project Runway while also flipping between the DNC, the VMA’s, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report. I’ve been keeping up with this season religiously and have no problem admitting that I’m a huge fan of both Melissa & Christopher. The challenge from last night was interesting, group challenges usually are. Of course, everyone ended up getting split into the worst possible groups ever but despite the oddness of the groups it obviously worked out for the winning team. I was pleased to actually see looks I like come out of a team challenge especially since the focus was on fall/outerwear. Gunner, who I haven’t really been paying much attention to, really impressed me last night. It’ll be cool to see where his new-found confidence leads him for the rest of the competition.
And while we’re on the subject, I should also mention that you’ll probably want to take a look at the WWD coverage of the Project Runway RTW show for Spring 2013 as well.
