Pretty in Pink in Philly

May 9, 2011
Dress – Bluebird, Jacket – True Religion, Boots – vintage, Bag – Melie Bianco, Ring – Threadsense

I put this this post together late last night when really I should have be prepping for my first day at work at Free People . . . which is today! Thankfully, I kind of had an idea yesterday of what I wanted to wear for my first day on the job. No biggie. I’ve been in Philly for two days so far and already have been having a blast getting to know the area I am staying in right now (Rittenhouse) and all the surrounding neighborhoods, as well as getting to make new friends in the city! My first real night here I went out with some Free People girls for a big British dinner and drinks afterwards. Yesterday was a day of lunch and shopping with Veronika of Tick Tock Vintage and her friend Bernadette (pics to come). Life has really has been amazing so far! I couldn’t have asked for a better welcome to the city!

Now, let me first introduce you to my new friend (and basically best east coast bud so far) . . . Kim from eat.sleep.wear. This girl is just darling and so much fun!!! Beautiful inside and out. I feel so lucky to have met this girl. We took some pizza to go eat at Rittenhouse Park right as the sun was going down last night. It was a beautiful . . . perfect! I am looking forward to many more adventures with this doll in the city!
Here is Kim and I acting all crazy in my bathroom at my studio. Being cheesy is the best! Gosh, I love this girl!

The Last Goodbye

May 6, 2011
Last Sunday night was a night to remember with all of my beloved friends that I have been so lucky to meet through blogging. I wanted to get everyone in one place so I could say my last goodbyes before I leave for Philadelphia. We giggled and laughed over sushi and sake in Santa Monica. It was an amazing time. And I am so happy that I finally got to really meet Aimee from Song of Style, as well as her boyfriend. They are the sweetest couple ever. In just a few hours, I will be boarding a one-way flight to Philadelphia to start my new adventure as a stylist for Free People. Leaving my friends and family behind for this wonderful opportunity is bittersweet, but I am also in one of the most overly excited states that one can ever be in. I couldn’t be happier right now. Thanks Mckenzie, Shea, Rachel, Eunice, Beatrice, Jules, Jade, Melanie, Rebecca, and Aimee for coming out Sunday! I felt so sad leaving these faces behind that night, but I know I will be seeing them all very very soon again! And congrats to Mckenzie from The Fitting for getting an internship at Free People’s showroom in LA! Hopefully I get to see this girl in Philly someday soon 🙂 Even though we met not too long ago, I feel like I’ve known her forever! Love all these girls! They are all the reason why I love blogging! Natalie will be in NYC next week to host a MANGO event, and she will be joining me in Philly for a weekend of fun and apartment-hunting! Can’t wait! Going to miss you so much Nat, it’s not even funny!

Flash of Metallic

May 3, 2011
Skirt – American Apparel, Sweater – Urban Outfitters, Belt – vintage from CALICO, Sandals – Coach, Bag – Mango, Bracelet – vintage

A midi skirt with a little sweater . . . basically my go-to look for anytime/anywhere. I always have the urge to twist and turn in skirts like this, and even more so when they shimmer in the light. So puuuuuuuuuuuuuuurty. Another thing that I think is purty? My vintage leopard belt from CALICO. I don’t know what I would do without this thing. It adds a little feisty-ness to all my skirts and dresses. Me likey.
