Work from 7 am to 6 pm. Everything goes smoothly. Blah.
Wormed my way out of a happy hour and went in search of some inspiration. Something beautiful. To lift my spirits.
Found just what I was looking for at Anthropologie aka Vagina Heaven. How unique is this nubby half wrap sweater? Delish. May have to pick it up in L.A.
Also loved this bow sweater. Very Moschino.
And this gorgeous black and white short-sleeved number! Looks like a structured jacket but is a very fine gauge sweater. Very Chanel on a dime. Love!
After feeding my spirit, it was time to feed my tummy. A Nor Cal native, Peaches recommended a dozen restaurants for me to try during my three day visit. That pig! One of them was the chichi Bong Su, a Vietnamese restaurant where he spent last New Year's Eve.
The decor was beautiful. But the food! Good god the food was some of the best I've ever had.
Started with the Mekong Martini: Lychee Vodka, Mango Nectar, Pressed Lime with Black Tea Tapioca Balls.
Then came the Crab Spring Rolls - Soft rice paper rolls of crisp soft shell crab, avocado & mint; served w/ a mango-kaffir lime sauce.
And then caramelized Black Cod in onion, garlic, black pepper & molasses.
Complemented perfectly by Coconut and Vanilla rice.
I think I had an orgasm at the table. Um, seriously. I'm not joking. Meg Ryan in When Harry Met Sally=me.
Vantage blue button down
Theory black slacks
Marc Jacobs pumps
Fashion District bangle
W for Why Me? and Weeping and Worst Ever
and WTF!!!! and WHO Thought This Was a Good Idea
I just don't DO uniforms.
Have NEVER EVER had a job that required one.
And, I'm sorry but blue button downs don't make you a professional any more than wearing a white lab coat make you a doctor. F. This is all a sham, I wanted to scream all day today and rip off The Man's clothing.
Furthermore, button downs aren't a good look on the the thick waisted (aka me.) I avoid them like the plague. I need things that flow through the middle not hug.
Blue button downs also show, um, perspiration marks. And well I am THAT person that is ALWAYS hot and hence a bit of a sweat monster. So on top of feeling like a tragic corporate world joke I felt self conscious about my pits all day. UGH. Total and utter fashion nightmare.
Much prefer my after work outfit. Casual but still chic. Think anyone in their right mind would prefer to do business with a woman wearing this outfit instead of the tradeshow button down black and blue horror scene. Right? Right??????
