Long Week

Vertigo trench coat from TJ Maxx; Current/Elliott jeans; Minnetonka moccasins; Vintage Chanel backpack

I have never been more glad to have the time to sit down in front of my computer with a giant cup of coffee and write a blog post! This past week has been so tiring, full of emotional highs and lows. There were celebrations and there were memorial services. Meeting new people and saying goodbyes. Driving and unhealthy food and not enough coffee...

I'll focus on a positive right now. Last Wednesday, the BF and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary (please, don't ask when we're getting married, we got enough of that, ugh!). We drove down to the lake, ate delicious German food and drank German beers out of *gigantic* glasses, and walked around the cute little stuck-in-the-1940s lake town. I love towns like that, ones that haven't yet been taken over by McDonalds and Starbucks, and still have that Gilmore Girls Stars Hollow feel to them - I could definitely see myself living in a tiny town like that, at least a few months out of the year.

But now that I'm back to reality, I have time to catch up on all of the runway shows! Which were your favorites? Which were the craziest? I'm also going to catch up on all my blog reading this afternoon, I really miss you guys and can't wait to see what you've all been up to this past week!


PS - I want to give a HUGE thank you to Asami over at Pink Kitten for featuring me - she is the world's biggest Jeffrey Campbell fan and owns close to 150 pairs of JC's! Check out her blog for some serious shoe porn!

PPS - Don't forget to enter to win a $100 gift card to Shopbop - ends Tuesday night at midnight!

I have to agree, after crazy days at work and doing errands around the house, a night in front of the computer in my comfy room with nothing else to think about is pure bliss. :)
Hope you like my newest post on rings and follow my blog as well.

Danielle Barbe said...

i love towns like that.. that's where i personally feel most comfortable. it's so refreshing and easy.

those miu miu shoes bring me a lot of happiness too, trust me. love your backpack in this post, by the way!

this free bird said...

so sorry to hear you've been having a rough patch my dear. it was great to read about a light in the clouds and i won't say a thing about the dating/marriage thing b/c i can completely sympathize. it never ends, does it?

on an even brighter note you are insanely cute w/that chanel backpack. oh, and you may be pleased to know jeffrey campbell is now synonymous w/you - in my mind anyway! i see jc shoes or hear about them and immediately your blog header pops into my mind.

xoxo,
carrie

LadyLUX said...

Thanks for taking the time to reflect on your week, I love the pict you choose to use for this post. I can definitely relate to you. I also try to focus on the positive even when faced with not so positive people, situations and feelings. One of my favorite shows was Balenciaga, the shorts, plaids and punk was refreshing and just made me feel good, http://www.ladylux.com/style/site/article/blazers-shorts-steal-the-show-at-paris-fashion-week/
