So obviously I have been MIA for like…. EVER. Sorry bout that. As you all know I got a new job (if you don’t know I am now working as a stylist for a boutique at Fred Segal) and for the first time in my life I am working full time. Five days a week, nine hour days. Definitely something I am getting used to. And speaking of my job… guess who is totally OWNING her position?!?!? Little do my clients realize this is my first actual job in the industry because they regularly tell me what a bad ass babe I am. And the best part? I LOVE helping these women!
Not only am I excelling at the job, but my boss totes loves me and is putting me on a fast track for success. I am thrilled. This job is definitely pushing me out of my comfort zone in certain areas of life, and challenging me to grow along with the career and I am soooo signed up because I see so much potential in where ever I end up with Fred Segal. Plus I’ve been hooked up with quite a few pieces of clothes which is always a nice perk.
On another note, that thing in the desert I go to every year, Burning Man, yeah…. it was great as usual. This year was particularly eye opening, challenging, mind bending and frankly, it changed my life. I have always heard people say “Burning Man changed my life…” and after 5 years of attending, I totally get it. Damn you Burning Man. Damn you. I wasn’t necessarily in the market for my life to be changed, but I guess that’s what life is all about. One book, different chapters.
So as for my blog, I am devastated that I haven’t had as much time as usual to spend on it. Not sure if you all realize how much time and effort goes into regularly keeping up a blog, but now that I am settling into my job, and my new city (btw Culver City is AMAZING!!!) I am going to try to get back on my blogging wagon. And I’ll start by sharing this fabulous story from today:
I went to scope out the goods at my local Ross and while sashaying through the shoe trenches I came across a lone pair Dolce Vita mega platform booties!
I snatched them up quicker than humming bird flaps its wings. Seeing Dolce Vita at Ross does happen but it’s rare. I knew for a fact these shoes were once selling for $185 on Nasty Gal. After salivating over their beauty, I looked at the price tag. EIGHTEEN DOLLARS. Seriously. $18 pieces of paper with George Washington on them was all Ross wanted for these exquisite Dolce Vita boots. It’s always fun finding a great deal.
