My Week

I couldn’t be more happy that the week has come to an end. A few weeks ago I made the decision to give my notice at my job (Betsey Johnson) because I was really starting to get overwhelmed – between my five classes, working five days a week, my internship and maintaining my blog I had to stick to what my heart was saying and leave my day job. I have had a job since I was 15 so it will definitely be a change, but a good one! I’m going to focus everything I’ve got into my bloggy and shop! Here’s to the start of a new beginning; have a fabulous weekend, everyone!

Rain, Rain, Go Away

You may think I’m crazy for taking pictures out in the rain but I swear it wasn’t nearly as bad before we started! It was so wet, windy and difficult to take any good shots, so please forgive me. I wore one of my favorite floral dresses to try and brighten up the day… it sure worked for me, just bummed that these photos don’t give my pretty frock justice!

ASOS Marketplace

   

I’m almost positive I’m not the only one completely obsessed with ASOS Marketplace. Being that I have a love for all vintage clothing I’m constantly on the hunt for new vintage shops that sell unique and one-of-a-kind pieces that are inspiring. I love that ASOS has a marketplace for small business owners to curate their shops in a way that they feel demonstrates what their brand is all about. It’s also very community oriented which I’m all for— which is obvious since I’m a blogger! It’s nice to be able to browse and take note on things other shop owners do when it comes to their business (styling, photography, pricing, etc.) and I’m sometimes able to use what I’ve learned and apply it to my shop in a way that speaks to me and the brand I’m trying to create. I’ve literally spent hours looking through a ton of the boutiques and have managed to create a full new ‘bookmark folder’ on my computer dedicated to items on my wish list… it’s a serious addiction!
