Blah and Busy

Howdy folks, sorry about going skimpy on the blog but I’ve been feeling blah and busy. Sounds contradictory I know, but here’s why. So school started on August 25th and I decided to continue working part time for at least a little while because the pay is so great and the work is so not that bad. Of course that means I’ll be going to work before the crack of dawn and then working 7 hours before driving back and going to class. I’m out of the house for almost half the day. Of course when I’m not working/going to class, I melt into a puddle of blah. I have a friend who’s even worse. Every semester she takes 5 or 6 classes, works at least 20 hours a week and some of it’s unpaid, and is in at least 5 different organizations so she spends her evenings running around campus going to meetings or attending events. Yes the life of overachievers sucks. Yes, in fact it sucks the life out of us. Unlike her, I realize this kind of schedule is unsustainable so I’ve already told my boss that I’m leaving the company come mid-September. They’ve advertised the position and found a suitable replacement. I’m going to miss that place but quitting will definitely free up my schedule.

In the meantime, there's lots of fashion news I've been keeping an eye on. Spring 2010 NY Fashion Week is starting tomorrow!! I'm so excited even though I'm clearly no where near NYC, much less getting in to see the shows. However with my new iPhone, which is taking over my life, and Style.com's app, I can view the photos any place, any time. Which would be super for blogging if they get the pictures up promptly.

I'm also loving this Refinery21 article on fashion and food bloggers (I swear, my two favorite things). Great blogs like Luxirare, Maison des Reveries, and Cupcakes and Cashmere made the list. With a list this good, I'll definitely have to check out Blushing Ambition and Carb Lover Food Stylist.

Blushing Ambition

I always love high-low collaboration, if not the clothing, at least the idea. The latest one that caught my eye is the Christopher Kane for Topshop collection. The stuff looks amazing! ... And is also priced between $80-$300. Yikes, that's way out of my budget. To quote Kelly O'Reilly from the Thread: "With collaborations becoming almost generic, it would be a tragedy if their original appeal - designer designs at non-designer prices - fell by the wayside."

If you want to be in the know about all upcoming high-low collabs, definitely follow Nitrolicious. That update bunny has the best and earliest coverage.

As amazing as this collection is, I'm still holding out for Rodarte for Target coming this December! What designer collaborations are you excited about?
