In my last post, I promised something big for my 100th post. And DUDE, have I delivered. I kept wondering how to make a teensy little blog post big, and yesterdays eighties sea fish sweater find was perfect!

The label on this sweater says ''Latitudes''. It may not be a very well known company, but if their sweaters are this good, I just might be their biggest fan!

Aw, the September Issue. Most people hear ''September Issue'' as mainly a thing Vogue does. And they do, very well. But other fashion mags have september issues! September Teen Vogue (not pictured) was quite thin, but thankfully  moved out of the washed out denim rut it'd been through for a while. The punk inspired photo spread was gorgeous! And oh dear, don't ask me about who was on the cover (LIAM WAS WEARING ALEXANDER MCQUEEN SHOES. ENOUGH SAID), unless you want to read a September Issue long post. In that case..
      Anyways, if your enjoying your september issues, make sure one of them is W. Seriously. The iconic mix of provocative and utterly beautiful is really exemplified in this issue. I really believe this magazine is like no other. It's not hipster, cool, sophisticated,'s just W! Along with our need for unique people, this world needs unique magazines. And W certainly fits the bill.
     Vogue was its usual gorgeous. My favorite part (which actually made me a little emotional) was the inclusion of a Schiaparelli by Christian Lacroix dress. Do you realize how long it's been since that's happened? It really gives you hope. Even if a fashion house closes, the beauty and talent never will. And sometimes people will even come in and do capsule collections for you! 
     Elle was good. Not as fantastic as the first two, but definitely better than last month. Kate Upton looked beautiful on the cover. THOSE SHOES! A perfect mix of chunky and slim. I hate shoes that are too much of either.

 Well, thank you for reading this blog!!!!! And thank you for reading it in the future! Til next time...

Give me a ONE! Give me a D!

   Estate sales (especially where I live) are the best places to get old stuff. Such as my cheerleading outfit, before cheerleading outfits were a sweatshirt and peplum underwear! I've also been practicing my pairing skills, and in my head the One Direction socks with Vera's totally goes. The skirt is the best part, though, since I can combine it with all sorts of different stuff. My next post is going to be my 100th, so i'll be planning something really big! ;)

Interview with Bergdorf Goodman Sales Associate, Pila Sanchez (my first interview yay!)

      This past week I was in the most fab place on earth. Manhattan, in case you didn't immediately guess! I got to see the Chaos to Couture exhibit at the Met, Strawberry Fields in Central Park, Alexander McQueen store, Madame Tussauds wax museum....and somewhere I've wanted to go for years.....Bergdorf Goodman on 5th Avenue! Basically, it's a department store, but instead of scented candles and lame greeting cards, it sells Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Christian Louboutin shoes, even Azzedine Alaia. I also got to interview, via email, someone who works there! Here is my interview with Pila Sanchez, a sales associate for Bergdorf's:
1.) What is your favorite outfit from your own closet?
This very simple navy oversized kimono style Ann Taylor 80's raincoat, and a big wide beautiful Chanel scarf made of silk chiffon.
2.) Everyone has seen a major fashion fail. What is the worst outfit you've seen?
Anything two sizes too small.
3.) Who is your least favorite designer?
4.) As someone who works at a store that sells all sorts of brands, from Azzedine Alaia to Christian Louboutin shoes, what is the best outfit you've seen while working at Bergdorf's?
A head to toe Akris outfit...simple turtleneck and very full A-line skirt with high leather boots in a beautiful dark rusty orange. Very simple yet so elegant.
 5.) Bergdorf's is one of the most iconic stores in the world, in the
biggest city in America. What has been your most unique experience while
working there?
 To be able to pick from such a beautiful closet and help
someone look amazing.

6.) You work specifically with Fendi. What comes to mind when describing
the Fendi style?
 Very Artistic.Classy. Unique.
  7.)  What is the average Bergdorf Goodman customer like?
 A lady that knows what she likes and a lady that loves some guideness.
 What do they buy the clothing for? Work and pleasure.
  8.) You previously worked for Max Mara. What was that like?     
  Loved the product. My introduction to high end retail and good customer service.
How was it different from your current job? Just one brand to pick from so
I felt a bit limited sometimes.

 9.) And lastly, if you could have any one outfit/pair of shoes, what
would it be?
Anything Chanel...but the fit has to be perfect.

Flower Queen

This is probably my most out-there piece. It doesn't have a label, but the lady at the antique shop told me it was from the 40's. Tonight I'm catching my Amtrak train to NYC, so I will certainly be wearing it there!
