Another day, another dollar.
Enjoyed a much anticipated dinner with a dear girlfriend tonight. We hit bld, where we plopped down next to the little miss from Little Miss Sunshine! Random!
G and I were TAs together in grad school. She is a true gem of a human being - painfully cute, brilliant, articulate, uber professional, stylish, self-deprecating, supportive and ambitious.
I just cherish her friendship. And her metallic BCBG stilettos. And her enormous Marc bag :)
G was a fashion editor for the last 7 years. She's taken me to countless glam-O-rous events (the Golden Globes last year, for one) and has scored me some of the most outrageous gift bags EVER (we're talking pashmina throws and color photo printers!)
After a string of stellar but ultimately unsatisfying editorial jobs, she just left journalism to go back to school. She's going to get her MBA and become one of the fashion moguls she used to write about. Haven't seen her this determined/happy in a while. Absolutely thrilled for her.
She reminded me tonight to trust my instincts. That they will lead me down the right professional path once and for all. Feel so lucky to have friends like her helping me clear the way.

Stuck with yesterday's theory of wearing up the last of my winter stuff before it gets warm. Choose another tweedy skirt partly because I was feeling lazy and partly because I love me some tweed when it's cold out.
I got this skirt resale in Santa Monica at a place called The Address (AMAZING designer shoe and pants selection - no dressing rooms tho and the sales staff can be annoyingly persistent!)
It's one of the few Anthropologie pieces I own. Everything in that store delights me (the retro sweaters and sweet dresses are very MJ meets Nanette Lepore) but the store is just too rich for my blood. Even the sales seem pricey to me for what you are getting: an upscale Urban Outfitters. Jean Bean once used to swear by it tho.
I heart this sweater. Got it at Filene's Basement in Boston when I was there for a conference 5 years ago. Is a nice contrast to the darkness of the skirt and picks up the little flecks of blue in the tweed. Especially yummy with the matchy earrings. I love a basic in a not-so-basic color.
Felt a bit large and in charge today with the bulk of the tweed and the sweater. But G told me I looked more toned, slighter in the shoulders. God bless her.
p.s. I was just reading Perez Hilton and came across this UBER-inspiring photo.
Would love to be a mom who rocks to-die-for stilettos and tweed-y skirt with a delectable Chanel scarf.
Unfortunately, don't think it's realistic for any one other than Victoria Beckham.
