The Scene
Dinner and drinks with former co-workers tonight. Thank god for The Biscuit and KFR. Over the past 5 years, their support has been one of the greatest gifts in my life. Nights with them - talking about our lives and careers and gleaning meaning from both - always feel like a life raft when I'm struggling.

Sadly what is good for the soul is not always good for the hips. Ate like a teenage football player tonight. F!!! The Peeper, a psychologist, theorizes that I've been eating my feelings lately. Don't know how to cope with them so I've been swallowing them. Along with tons of high fat content. No bueno.

The Outfit
Target top
Liquid pants

The Accessories
Marc by Marc Jacobs bangle
Fashion District necklace
Frauda sunglasses
Chanel bag
Jeffrey Campbell heels

The Grade

The Commentary

Built the outfit around my new Marni-inspired top.

Bought it on sale at Target for 12 dolla.

Love how the print reads one part tribal

One part polka dot.

And how perfectly it worked with my old MJ bracelet.

Which just happens to also be very Marni spring 2009.

For a tenth of the price.

Paired the top with the white pants today for a summery but still office appropriate feel.

Was inspired by Riri.

Am completely in awe of how perfectly she manages to balance edgy

With sophisticated.

Think I am more of a Beyonce.

Even when I dress down I skew more classic than cutting edge.

Was shocked at how easily the white pants went from work

To play tonight.

Currently on the hunt for a pair of sleek khakis that will do the same. Please keep your peepers peeled.
