By the time you will read this, I will be up in the air on my way to New York City. Technically this is during fashion week, but sadly no one accepted my offer to walk the runway for them this year. Some people just don't know a good thing when they see it. Instead I'll be speaking Wednesday on a panel about entrepreneurship at the IFB Conference. (Remember the post when everyone thought I hashtagged bacon? Ah yes, now it's all coming back to you. That conference.)

I had big plans for a sock bun tutorial this week and a few other cool posts but I ran out of time. Next week I'll post a bun tutorial, I promise. But I promise like a bad ex-boyfriend who lies. So don't hold your breath.

  61. "I promise like a bad ex-boyfriend who lies." Classic Kendi humor! Love it!

    My favorite part of this look is the shoes. They are so pointy and vintagey. I got a pair like that the other day from Modcloth, except they're glittery! Can't wait for them to arrive!

  89. I've been obsessed with this blog for probably over a year now.  Wish I had the chance to attend the conference.  You should of held a meetup for all your NYC fans!! Not that this weather is conducive to looking cute.  My hair expanded to new heights on my way home last night.  Curly hair problems right?  Good luck today gurrrrl!

Thanks for the adding some joy and laughter to the day!

  100. Ouch... these pointy shoes are too cheap, lacking clearly class.  Pointy shoes are awful, I expect they don't come back.  I would be indulgent in other girl, but you are too classy and chic for such poor shoes.
