As if sitting on a leather seat right smack in the middle of summer when it’s 80 degrees out isn’t bad enough, I decided to wear a leather skirt. Hope everyone’s having a wonderful Wednesday! :)

It’s 2am and I have been starring at the screen for the last 20 minutes, writing nonsense, deleting and rewriting the same nonsense. I realized I have talked about this subject many times before: color blocking, maxi skirts, oh look at how this skirt is flowing in the air and the sun is seeping through creating that warm hint of glow from that ray of golden hour delight. Do you ever get writer’s block? Anyhow, the crimson red color of this skirt is pretty darn amazing.

In other boring news, we’ve finally narrowed down the models for the KSW fashion show (thanks to the lovely ladies of Kearny Street Workshop) and I learned/realized a few things about myself over the weekend: 1) I’m such a low talker, 2) my lack of patience is a mean son of a gun and 3) I drive like a senior citizen. Thank you NR for pointing these out. I’ll work on it but I can’t guarantee the driving will improve.

Happy Monday loves. I hope you had a wonderful and productive weekend! xo

Petite Fashion Challenge #14: Holiday Travel Emergency

I’m excited to participate in yet another fun fashion challenge! This month Petite Fashion Challenge #14 (PFC) is hosted by Couture Coco. Check out her blog to see the list of other participants.

The Scenario: I have “formal” dinner plans the same evening I arrived into town. Upon arrival, I was told that my luggage will be delayed until the next day. All the running around left me no time to stop by any stores to pick up a dress.

The Challenge: I need to style my travel outfit into a special evening look using whatever I carried in my purse and anything else immediately at hand! Yikes!!

Thanks a lot AA!

On my last trip, I wore this really old but super comfy Marciano teal maxi dress with flats (we went to the airport last night to recreate this look lol)… My travel outfits are typically combined with a hat, small carry-on, my handbag, a scarf, jacket, a good read and my beloved pet pillow Kathanael.

Lucky for me, I always carry on my makeup, hair brush, a pair of heels and my jewelries.

In case of emergency situations like these, all I have to do is brush my hair, apply makeup, add accessories and get a little creative with what I had on hand…  This challenge definitely prove that making something work at the last minute is totally doable if you are just a little prepared.

Dress: Marciano tube maxi (old) (similar here)

Thank you Couture Coco for such a fun challenge!
