I've been gone for three months. Wow. I'm sorry. It's been super hectic but things have seemed to calm down for a while. I've missed you all.
I thought I'd come back with an outfit! This shirt is probably one of my most prized possessions. I picked it up at a boutique here called Eurotrash, which focuses on european designers. This top is a Ted Baker neoprene top, and it's like origami. It's so well tailored and structured and all around beautiful that I instantly fell in love with it and used my very first paycheck on it!
Oh yeah - guess what? I have a job! I'm a functioning member of society! Yay! I work at Hallmark. It's actually really great and gives me an outlet for my OCD since I just get to straighten things as well as some visual merchandising experience, which I'm hoping will come in handy in the future!
So much new stuff is going on! If you didn't notice, I'm blonde again. I'm guessing none of you that know me on here remember the last time I was blonde since it was the very beginning of the start of this blog. I missed it a lot though, so I went back. Hopefully, I can go silver soon. Another big thing is that I'm a model! Well, kind of. Anybody remember about a year ago when I posted about the fashion show at the VMFA (Virginia Museum of Fine Arts)? Well, I'm going to be modeling in it! It's super exciting and I'm walking for a friend of mine who has this amazing style and concept for her design and it's going to be so great. I'm so excited. Besides those, I've mostly just been spending more time wandering  my beautiful city and I think it's done me a lot of good. One of my professors has been getting me into nature a lot more and Richmond is one of those cities where you can get your dose of nature even in the very heart of the metropolis.
I've also been trying to spend a lot more time with my friends, as they keep me sane. So for today's outfit photos you have the lovely Gwyneth to thank! I' m so sick of that stupid brick wall I usually pose in front of, so I'm hoping to make this a regular thing. Yesterday we - Maria, Gwyneth, and myself - went to one of my favorites, Ipanema, for lunch and then went shopping at Deep Groove, Halcyon Vintage, and Rumors.

Have a lovely Thanksgiving.
