I know I have been M.I.A. since my last post, but this week was pretty intense!
On Tuesday I attended a Meetup event in SF in honor of Fashion Tech Week. There was a panel at the Zappos Lab on 121 3rd St consiating of women from the fashion and tech world. It was very inspiring and I enjoyed hearing the words of wisdom being passed on to people that were bloggers, designers, or app developers. It was cool to see so many new apps available that focused on fashion. It was also pretty fun because I got to hang out with fellow blogger Elise from WTFab! She looked super chic in her tall, tan riding boots and hounds tooth print coat and is so fun to hang out with! If anything, it made mingling and networking after the panel a little bit easier. Unfortunately, I got home really late and was too tired to post.
Then, last night I was busy baking cupcakes and decorating them for a send off party for one of my fellow coworkers. Even though I was not done frosting them, I passed out and woke up early to finish decorating them this morning. When we had our going away party, I felt so sad that a fellow coworker had to leave. Although he is only being relocated to another building, he is actually pretty optimistic with this new opportunity will still be stopping by our office regularly. He was really happy I made chocolate cupcakes which made me feel better about the whole situation.
I feel by this weekend I will be all caught up. I've actually cleaned my apartment so that I don't have any clothes just lying around. The clothes that I need to sell or let go of are in a small, inconspicuous pile, and I have gone ahead and listed a number of things on Poshmark. I still have a long way to go to post everything, but I hope you'll be able to check it out and buy something if you like it. I know I am supposed to sell cupcakes to pay for my shopping habit, but I want a Magenta KitchenAid Mixer too! lol
Now getting back to this post, today I was going for a professional look. What is more classic than a wrap top with trousers? Maybe a little black dress, but I did feel pretty professional and classic in this at work. I think this is office appropriate. The seahorse ring has been something I've always managed to wear with this top. The two items just go together, but even so, this look required minimal jewelry. This outfit could be appropriate for an interview too, except I'd wear a watch and remove the ring. (It would be very uncomfortable for someone shaking my hand if I had it on.)
Hope you are having a great week so far and thanks for reading!
