This weekend was actually kind of busy for me, more so than the rest of my winter weekends have been the past few months.
So busy that, well, I only managed to photograph one outfit for you the whole weekend. No worries, enough other exciting stuff happened that there's no need for a lot of outfits from me.
First off, if you've ever wondered what it is exactly I do...or if you think I'm just being pretentious or that I'm a big fat embellisher of job titles, rest assured that's not the case!
When I claim to be a "fashion designer", that's actually-honestly-what I do for a living.
(It's awesome, not gonna lie!)
Just take a look what I came across at the 2010 SAG Awards:

It's Sarah Hyland from "Modern Family."
--as if she's not gorgeous enough, but she looks beautiful in this Amethyst color!(I think she's looks like a younger Milla Kunis). And do you know what that is she's wearing????
Hate it or Love it, or just think its so-so....that's one of my designs I did at work!!!!
(This is so gratifying, you don't even know! I never get tired of seeing celebs in something I had a part of...and it makes my family proud. Oh, and it makes me realize that a lot of hard work, and so little sleep for those 4 years of college actually really were worth it!)
Saturday I went and got my hair trimmed and my highlights touched up.
By the time I got home, it was time to turn around and head back out.
I found myself in a tizzy, not wanting to dress up, but not wanting to wear my usual jeans and t-shirt; so I started reaching for anything I could scramble to find (btw, my lightbulb burned out in my bedroom and BF and I were a little slow about replacing it, so I did this all in the dark).
Lots of random stuff going on here, but it was all BLACK, so I figured it would be alright (and its dark in most bars, particularly the dive bars I frequent, so who really was going to notice if it was a mish-mash of nonsense?)
*Black vintage velvet jacket-from vintage store in Kalamazoo, MI
*Black fringe tunic (what I believe to be the top portion of a cheap halloween costume)-Beacon's Closet
*Black mesh skirt-Forever 21
*Gray cashmere tights (soooooo warm!!)-gift from my BFF in Ohio
*Black knee-high boots-Jessica Simpson (yes you can laugh at me!)
*Silver vintage owl necklace-Thrift Store
Saturday night turned out to be a delight.I met up with Idee_geniale of course...then we made our way to Williamsburg where we got to meet the girls behind Crowded Closet!
--Ok...of course that was totally fun! I like meeting new people, although I usually walk away completely content with the few friends I have, but these girls were so much fun, lots of comic conversation, and all-around cool ladies!
And honestly, I would love to hang out with them again--maybe when we make our way to Philly since one-half of the duo lives there (I've always needed some guidance as to where to go when I'm in that town--a history lover like myself can only look at the foundation of Ben Franklin's house, or step foot in the building where the Continental Congress met, or gawk at Betsy Ross' house on so many occasions before its time to find something. Although I'm not knockin' the US history-heck no! I'm just sayin, a change-up next time in Philadelphia might be called for).
Sunday (today) I did not bother photographing my threads since time was of essence. And I was lacking in my attention to the clock-before I knew it we should've been on our way like 15min before we actually left.
When I say "WE", I mean BF and I. We had a family birthday lunch to get to in Staten Island.
It was AWESOME! Japanese Hibachi!!!!
--Who doesn't love a little entertainment, a little playing with food? I even caught a piece of vegetable in my mouth when it was tossed at me--and that's amazing considering I've never been able to catch in my life!
Insert my best Beavis and Butthead impersonation here (actually make that just Beavis):
"FIRE, FIRE! heh heh"
BF opted out of the grilling fun, instead he went with the Sushi platter. Not a bad choice, especially considering he managed to help me out with my dish quite a bit...so essentially he had the best of both worlds.
Oh...and one last thing...if you haven't stopped by Dusty Rose Vintage's blog lately--please check it out.
There's a little interview with ME....
so you can get to know me just that much more! And clearly, that will make your weekend complete! :)
