proof that i still exist







black nylon spandex micro-mesh twist scarf: american apparel
black nylon spandex mirco-mesh tee:  american apparel
vintage flouncy skort: california select
vintage belt: goodwill 
dancing shoes: american apparel

hello, i have missed the internet.  i have good news and bad news.  lets just get the bad news out of the way first.  here goes.  i got very sick and wasn't getting better so i had to take a break from life and put the etsy store onto vacation.  apparently not taking care of yourself will catch up with you eventually.

the other news is that i have a new job at american apparel.  i'm now in charge of the visual merchandising for all the boston stores.  big changes, good changes!  needless to say i have been so busy.  much more busy than i've ever been and that has taken some getting used to.  for now the etsy store will stay on vacation, at least until i settle into a routine but i made a promise to keep this blog going no matter what.  so expect to see more of me around here.

aww you poor sweetie. that's so great about work, though! visual is so fun- i used to do it for, no laughing please, forever 21 back when i first moved to chicago. i actually was craigslisting up a storm last night since i'm not sure i'll be able to nanny alongside schooling in boston, and an AA ad came up. not sure i'm stylish enough to work there though. we'll see.

anyway email me back for once, girl!

Hope you're feeling better. My personal miracle cure is lots of fresh ginger tea with lemon and honey. And Guinness. Lots and lots of Guinness.

American Apparel. I'm shocked. Don't go into any offices with the door closed. And have a plan B – they tend ot get rid of anyone after a certain time, in case they want a raise/promotion/to be compensated for overtime/launch a sexual harassment suit.

stephanie renee said...

so glad you are feeling better and congrats on the awesome new job! i have missed your beautiful posts!

Nikita said...

Hey :) I can see, that you got the shoes from American apparel - What is your size on the shoes??, it looks like they got a wrong size-guide on American Apparel homepage..??
