NYFW :: Day 1

Fashion week is like a big dose of therapy for me, it brings me back to life and makes me happy and excited all over again.  I never lose my thrill of fashion, but Fashion Week reminds me what I love about it, and about life and getting dress up again!  I can't explain it and few can understand it {those of us that do give our life to it}.  So here is Day 1, I compiled all pictures from  So far they don't have many runway shows but they do have look books for Fall.  Here are a couple of my high fashion favorites so far.

First up is 10 Crosby Derek Lam.  I am blown away by the pictures, while no the 70's vibe is nothing new I love the fresh put together, tailored, slightly preppy way he did it.  These are all looks I will copy, especially the silk dress peaking out of the leather skirt... amazing. 

Next is Jenni Kayne.  Again, leather is clearly here to stay.  I also love the neon dress and obvi love a good fall floral print!

Just a sneak peak.... more to come!

Nail Polish Obsessions

Ok, so anyone that knows me knows that I HATE not having my nails painted.  Usually a really dark red color, sometimes I spice it up with dark purple or even lately dark brown! {I know... whoa...}.  My friends this weekend even joked about in college how I would paint my nails right before we left to hit the town {Aggieville being the town}, well things haven't changed!  Because of this obsession with always having my nails painted {not to mention not wanting to pay a lady to do it for me once a week} I have found the BEST nail polish for a busy lady on the run like me.  Now don't get me wrong, sometimes I love sitting down and giving myself a good old fashioned mani/pedi. However, when I don't have time for that I use....... THIS....

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color in Cinna-snap.  I really like 2 things about this... it dries REALLY fast {FYI I painted my nails right before starting this post and they are basically dry... and I'm a fast typer.}. Second thing I like about it, IT'S DARK RED!  Most "fast" drying nail colors were obviously made for a 5 year old girl with no patience, aka bright pink, neon green... you get my drift, well I'm a 26 year old girl with no patience.  This is really the only color they make that doesn't fit under 5 year old category.  Complaint number 2: It chips in no less then 24 hours.  But, who cares? It's my in between real nail polish manicure which is usually just a few days anyway!

I mentioned before I am going to Las Vegas for work on Sunday night, I am toying around with the idea of doing something I saw on a CUTE girl working at Kate Spade.  I drilled her the whole time I was checking out on how to do it.  It was a medium purple color on all nails with gold/pinkish glitter only on the pointer and pinky finger {some how she had a very light even glitter coat}.  We shall see if I have the guts to leave with this or if I stash a bottle of Cinna-snap so I can change my mind mid-flight....

Stay tuned!

NYFW :: Fall 2012

Hi friends! Miss me? I bet you did... or at the very least you should have! I'm sorry it's been so long, I spent a month being incrediably busy and at the same time hating my computer with all I had and just not using it for awhile.  I am SO close to being able to get a new one {which will quadruple the amount of posts happening here}.
