The best of Fall 2010 Collections

I don't love fall clothes, but i DO love this season's lineup of dainty dresses and 40's style cardis. It's definitely a nice vintage throwback and a contrast to nasty, tight sleazy clothes. These pieces i can feel like a lady in!

This two-fer dress is from Modcloth. It's lovely, ladylike, and beautiful colors. iLOVE mustard yellow this season!

This plaid number is from Urban Outfitters. it's actually a lovely flannel and i'd pair it with knee socks and saddle shoes.

These amazing shoes are from Urban. It's a steep price tag, but i might invest in something like this for Fall...nice simple suede.

I actually bought this piece awhile back for a photoshoot and forgot about it, but I found it in my closet last week. It's from LULUS.com and i love everything about it. Nice fit without being too clingy, good length, and beautiful detailing of the lace.

Of course this one is from Anthro, but i LOVE it. I'd love to sew something like it and pair it with plain black pumps.

Another anthro piece...absolutely flawless pairing of fabrics.

Last but not least a beautiful cardi! LOVE LOVE LOVE the two-piece look of it!

NCLEX, work, job hunting

NCLEX, job hunting, work. yep..that pretty much sums up our life for now..looking for a temporary job for drew while i finish school, registering for all 8 credits for school, hunting for a house, planning a wedding. things just don't slow down for us! on a happier note, i got new glasses this week. hadnt had new ones in 3 years. when i first put them on, i started to feel faint and threw up because they were so strong. thankfully my eyes adjusted. i dont recommend sticking them on so fast...definitely a bad idea. i have been enjoying a very busy summer...i wish it would slow down. now its time to start studying for my NCLEX exam which is next year and is going to be hard for me because though i get excellent grades, i dont test well. i have real trouble with exams, so i am definitely starting early. eek. i am dying to sew, but i dont have time. maybe someday ;) i bought yards of beautiful vintage fabric and little buttons and everything, but i just cant find time or energy to devote to it. :(

fun and happy things

wow..summer is flying by. seems like i have rarely been home...!
my work has shifted to ten hour days, so im working 7-6, and it's definitely been an adjustment to drag myself out of bed!
i am thankful for my boss and the flexibility he gives me to allow me to work two jobs and attend school.

My little company is growing fast, and I just signed a new artist and have two more prospective artists signing with me in a few months. I'm thrilled. i LOVE my job and love building my new little "family" of artists. So far, i just fall more and more in love with my work. We are launching my website on the 15th of August, and I purchased a domain and site. It's all very exciting! If things keep up, I could begin working part time at my day job...it would surely be nice to focus on school. i'm taking 18 credits this fall term, and im not entirely sure if i will LIVE to the wedding at this rate....i cant remember the last time i slept...i'm taking the psychology of sports and intro to theories of criminal justice and law, and ten credits of nursing classes. its pretty much a recipe for no sleep until graduation. :) i'm also back with CCM...and i love it. writing has always been my love, and CCM is where i started, so im definitely loving the articles and things i am getting to do. we have a great team of people there.

in between my crazy travel schedule and my work, we are planning a wedding! december is our month, and we are deciding between two different days. hopefully when drew moves, we will have a little more time to plan and work on little projects. we are very, very ready to just hurry up and be married! im counting down the days until he's HERE...I have surely missed my Love, and am ready to adjust to him being home for more than a few days.
