Last Saturday and This Monday

2.3.12a
2.3.12c
2.3.12d

Last Saturday I wore this outfit, so appropriately I would post it exactly one week later. Working retail means that even Saturdays I must get dressed up. This doesn’t mean that I haven’t spent hours trying to make sweat pants and heels work, but alas it just doesn’t. There is just something about stained sweat pants that doesn’t read “well-dressed”. Quite the shame.
So  this Monday is the launch date of Bloom online. I am excited/nervous/nervous all in one. But mainly excited….and nervous. But excited.
Have a good weekend, friends. See you on Monday.

    So excited to see the shop, and perhaps buy myself a little Valentine’s gift… Are you sending out autographed head shots with each purchase? 😉

      Actually it will be a lock of hair, instead of a head shot. 😉

    Great job on pairing two wonderful colors together – coral and a bright blue!  I’m a big fan of this color combo.  And in fact, I’ve been wearing pretty bright, bold colors myself – despite the wet, grey, and cold winter we’re having here in Toronto Canada.  And those shoes are too cute!  I own the same pair in a warm tan.

    I was so excited to check out the online store since I love your blog until I seen the crazy prices! Who can afford. $92 white button up shirt?!

    Still congratulations. Hopefully you make at least one sale, it should cover your whole months rent.

  134. you know, the chances are pretty high that if you started wearing stained sweatpants with an appropriate amount of affected authority, images across other fashion and style blogs everywhere would pop up….. digging out the old high school sweat pants. with a fitted tee and pumps? maybe a sleek black turtleneck? the possibilities are endless.
