I'm late! I'm late! I'm late! and BOY... do I know it! Thanksgiving was a beautiful, restful day. My sister and nephew were in town and I turned 31 yesterday- that's right, no shame in my game-- I'm 31!
No gift in the world could match my sweet little nephews face each and every day that he was here. I couldn't get enough of him and it broke my heart to see him leave but I'll have my memories and pictures to remind me until we see each other again.

While on my last 'signal' during lunch-hour yesterday, I did a quick thrift run and scored an adorable 'Built By Wendy' yellow sheath dress with embroidered anchors AND an equally adorable, deer-print, v-neck Primp tee. Can't wait to test run that Wendy dress with a grey cardigan-- am sort of obsessed with that color-scheme right now.

P.S. Don't mind the shoes. I didn't intend to pair them with this dress, but I was traipsing around my house, intoxicated by the height of the heal and couldn't bear to take them off-- You understand :)

In any case, I finally got to do some thrifting with my besties last weekend and scored an insane LaRok mini dress. The fabric is a rich, thick, winter white and the details are gold which has me thinking I might have to debut it at a holiday party or two this year. Also, I'm stoked to have an option outside of Black or Red. I promise to share it very soon.

There is a collective sense of apathy, with respect to our personal appearance, that is reverberating across mirrors and throughout closets worldwide. Save the obligatory sneaker and occasional flip flop, some of us have simply given up and given in to the slippery slope between the yoga pant in private and the pyjama bottom in public.
It's unfortunate and ironic that although we are taught not to care what others think of us, in every moment, we are unwittingly authorizing perceptions of ourselves that are inevitably affecting the regard to which our peers hold us, and the extent to which we are willing to go to perpetuate our best selves.
Giving care and consideration to the images we are projecting in our outward appearance is imperative because the compound effect of negligence and apathy, over time, could hinder our professional growth and the personal goals we've set for our lives.
Please consider this message a friendly reminder to put your best foot forward; wear your beautiful things with pride, and remember that your freedom, your health, your life today IS the special occasion.

"The bottom line is, blowing your rent money on one outfit isn't dressing to impress. What matters, he says, is how you present yourself. "So many people say to me, 'Oh, I'm not a fashion person,'" Gunn says. "Well, I don't expect you to be a fashion person. What I do expect is you to accept responsibility for how you present yourself to the world. It's the semiotics of clothes: The clothes we wear send a message to the world about how we want to be perceived. So accept responsibility for that." - Tim Gunn

Why won't I let my Blackberry do the work? Colorful ink, pretty paper, little red check marks and the wine that compliments the evening ritual of planning the day that follows :)

**Disclaimer: I know it's easier said than done but please disregard the red hot mess that is my hair in this photo. It's hot, I'm sweating and the mop on my head is bearing the brunt of it all.**

What can I say? Some days are leather and some days are lace. I rushed and raced all morning, anxiously awaiting a date with my girls and all too stoked to debut my mummy leggings (Thanks Baby!)-- While yesterday, I sat pretty on conference calls in a pencil skirt and a button down. I still can't decide if the rough and tumble days are more fun than the prim and proper days :)
