Forest Floor Fashion Show

A few weeks ago (maybe a month now!), I attended a local fashion show with a few of my blogger friends! Every year, the college I attended puts on a fashion show. It's always a fun experience and an excuse to get some girls together. This year, the theme was Forest Floor. It was a bit out there, but I kept having to remind myself that artists were putting this together... not fashion designers. When you think about it that way, it was quite inspiring! But yes, definitely entertaining. I had a lot of fun with the girls!


April showers are definitely here. We've had lots of rain and thunderstorms lately - which I love. I can't wait to get outside sometime with my umbrella and snap some pictures. I've been super down lately and haven't taken pictures since last weekend. I had an eye appointment and my doctor said I can't wear my contacts for a while because my eyelids are so irritated. He said 6 months... but there is no way I'm going that long not wearing contacts! I have a follow up appointment in two weeks... crossing my fingers they are healed by then. My glasses are like coke bottles and I feel so nauseated by the time I get home from work that all I want to do is eat a giant bowl of ice-cream and go to sleep. Booo!


Thank you all so much for your support and encouragement on the Forever 21 billboard in Times Square! If you haven't heard yet, it's officially live! I'm so excited to see it in person. We're planning a quick road-trip to NYC next weekend, finally. I've been stalking the live cam and although it's a huge deal seeing it in a photo, it'll be insane seeing it in person! I even had a friend say she spotted me on the billboard when they were filming "The Insider". Crazy, right?!


I had the amazing opportunity to meet Kayley of Sidewalk Ready and Blair of Love, Blair during this evening and spend time with my two other friends, Andrea of Blonde Bedhead and Patricia of Quirky Etiquette. It was too fun to grab fancy martinis and snacks afterwards and chat with girls. With my best girlfriend living in Colorado and being in a band, I'm constantly stuck with dirty ol' boys. This was a nice change-up! ;)

  22. I almost forgot about these pictures! You looked so cute that night!

    YAY for the billboard and being able to go see it! Don't forget what I said about posing underneath it ... or jumping around excitedly. You have to.

    Is it weird that as I was typing that my mouth started filling with the taste of a Stella's burger?

  27. I'm sorry about the eye debacle :(
    I'm the complete opposite though, whenever I wear my contacts I end up with a headache and can only last a few hours.

    Anyway, congrats on the billboard! That must be really exciting! :)

  35. Hey :) I just found your blog the other day from What I wore and I love it :)

    I just wanted to comment because I understand the problems of contacts! I too am a devoted user of them - I hate wearing my glasses :) But I've had eye problems as well that have meant I can't wear them as much. But I grit through the pain and wear them anyway :P So just writing to you in solidarity for ignoring doctor's orders!
