Blogging Culture and Looking The Part

Hello Darlings,  As  with every typical day, my post shower routine starts with a trip into my closet where I peruse through heaps of clothing.  Typically, nothing suits my mood for the day; classic “closet full of clothes and nothing to wear” dilemma. Incredibly enough there’s never a day when I walk in and know exactly which outfit to wear. As part of my day there’s typically a client event that adds to the pressure of always playing that part of being fashion forward. A concept that I dread! After all, what is fashion forward? It seems that being in an industry…

Within a span of one week I managed to spill water on my laptop, have my cell ran over by a taxi and crush the front wing of my car.

In my Louboutin Sweet Charity

Hello Darlings, A woman’s purse is her weapon, we all know it! It  carries our secrets and so much more. During the fashion week that weapon becomes a stand in for everything. From a beauty kit, to a lunch box, a tech station and  a go-to companion. For that one week, we essentially live out of our purses. It may not be the same purse but regardless of which one it is,  it is single – handedly the most important accessory aside from our phone which is probably in that purse! Not to forget it is also a fashion statement and…
