I've been dying to wear this jacket and this skirt for a very long time and decided today was the day I was going to wear both. I went out to dinner with my in-laws...I had a really great time, mainly because I really enjoy their company a lot. I'm very lucky to have great in-laws.

You've Got Mail

I'm on my blackberry all the time--I heart my blackberry very much. I have a trade show tomorrow, so I kept getting e-mail after e-mail because I haven't received the items I needed to display yet for tomorrow, so I ended up taking a picture with my blackberry at work...Luckily the items arrived later that day, but I need to put in some late hours tonight to make sure I have everything that I need for the show.

I don't usually carry purses with me since I normally carry a laptop bag but I thought this purse would look great with this outfit so I took it out of its dust bag. Plus my hubby bought me some Nike+ Air running shoes since my other ones were falling apart, I hope I get better soon (still have a cough) because I want to really break them in.

Still a little sick

Thank you so much for the Get Well wishes, the truth is I'm still sick and have been living on Thermaflu for the past 3 days. You would never know it by the pictures but today is the first day I'm feeling much better.

I went to go see clients plus attend a business dinner last night, in which the topic was about the economy. They claim its been stable with a rise of 3% growth, not sure how much I believe that--especially when I have friends that can't find a job, but let's just hope.

The Event

Boy, do I look terrible--I started to catch a cold yesterday evening and this morning it just kept getting worse and worse and we had a fundraiser to attend to tonight, it was called The Event.

It was held at a Yacht Club and there was a silent and live auction. This was our number #137 and it was to raise money for programs at a local elementary school (keep in mind I don't have any children...LOL) , we tried to bid on items but when a parking space goes for $6k, its hard to keep up with the Joneses and the Rockefeller's.

It was fun, but I really wanted to go home and crawl into bed, I'm ready for some tea and some sleep.

Wardrobe Capsule--Day 4

As much as I love the experience, I can't wait until this is over, I really do like my shoes and I enjoy wearing a different pair every day, so sticking to two pairs is actually depressing me...LOL.

I was told I look very christmassy--that's what happens when you can only wear a few items...LOL
Happy blogging all!

Wardrobe Capsule--Day 3

Doing this wardrobe challenge proves to me that I don't need anymore clothes. Its seems I can go a week with the same 2 pants, 1 dress, 2 shirts, 1 vest, 1 sweater and 1 jacket plus 2 shoes and 5 accessories. I'm pretty amazed at myself that I could do this, because its a lot easier than I thought.

Dress-Tommy Bahama (remix)
tights--Simply Vera by Vera Wang
shoes--BCBC Paris (remix)
sweater--Mossimo (remix)
scarf--via Loemann's (remix)

So far I have two takers on my challenge-giveaway let me know if you want to participate too! Thanks again for stopping by :)

My first capsule collection

Thank you The small fabric of my life for starting up this challenge. This is my first capsule and it made me realize a few things:

1) I noticed none of my items that I picked are designer, which leads me to believe that I don't have to spend a lot of money to have a week's worth of clothes.
2) This will cut down on the amount of items I pack when I travel for a business trip.
3) Its seems all the items I own are work outfits.
4) I have a lot of black...LOL

I have few trips coming up that I will be gone for a whole week, I'm very excited to see how well this works out. The weather report says its going to be 56-65 degrees which in So. Cal its on the cold side, plus its going to rain on Thursday and possibly Wednesday, so wish me luck I'll be warm enough.

So here is my capsule collection:

1. jacket--Old Navy (remix)
2. pink long sleeve shirt--Banana Republic (remix)
3. black striped long sleeve shirt--The Limited
4. black sheath dress--Tommy Bahama (remix)
5. green wrap sweater--Mossimo (remix)
6. checker vest--Merona (remix)
7. gray pants--Ann Taylor (remix)
8. black pinstripe pants-- Banana Republic (remix)
9. black booties--BCBG Paris (remix)
10. black Mary Jane pumps--Xileration (remix)

1. black onyx earrings (remix)
2. fresh water pearl necklace (remix)
3. black patent belt--Calvin Klein (remix)
4. faux snake skin belt--Mossimo (remix)
5. black/gray scarf--purchased at Loehman's

same look different color
