Grey Saturday

Another grey chilly day in NYC. The warm days last week had us all fooled. Definitely staying indoors today. Weather these days is so unpredictable.

So it looks like my work trip has been cancelled due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland. I was looking forward to the trip too...oh well, mother nature works in a mysterious ways. I will just have to accept it as it is...whatever happens happens.

Happy 1st birthday LRDC!

Lagging behind my blog posts is an understatement. I started this blog when I was first without a job and wanted to channel my creative juices in a way that keeps me focused on a weekly goal. So now that I have a job and happy with it, this blog has taken a backseat. I honestly didn't know if anyone was still reading this, but my friend Ashleigh was and asked about the recent lack of postings. On top of that, I really do miss this creative side project of mine. So, I'm going to start blogging again. While the camera batteries are charging, let me leave you with two of my favorite shows I went to during the New York Fashion Week Fall 2010, the Narciso Rodriguez show and Rachel Antonoff presentation. Anna was at Narciso Rodriguez too! Oh and happy 1st anniversary to la république du chic!

Clean lines and futuristic details, such as this giant bucket hat, dominated the show.
