Three Pretty Awesome Things That Happened Today…


Generally I don’t expect much from Tuesdays…maybe a decent episode of America’s Got Talent, good hair, and matching socks, but nothing too crazy. Little did I know that the pop-culture end of the world would give me a few gems to brighten up this dreary, rainy day.

Staying true to yesterday’s “More Fashion Week, Please” title, the first thing on the agenda is a peek into J. Crew’s Spring 2014 line. This brand can literally do no wrong. I can’t get enough of their clothes. Everything from the jewels to their jackets are meticulously crafted with comfort and ease of wear in mind. There is something about the “I’m So Casually Chic, It Hurts” look that really speaks to me and I constantly wish that I could pull it off more often than I do. J.Crew really has created a lifestyle brand that bridges the gap between high cost and high style. Don’t get me wrong, there are certainly pricey pieces, but as a whole, the polished looks that can be created with their statement basics appear to be far more costly than they actually are. After all, doesn’t everyone want to look “expensive” every now and again?

Bring on the bight pops of color, sleek lines, pretty patterns, and pastel hues:

Also on the agenda is that “Worst Twerk Fail of All Time” video that proves that America is: 1. still obsessed with the twerk 2. really bored at work and 3. extremely gullible. Hey, I can’t even really say anything, I fell for it, too. The webcam setup, the intimate candles, the friend coming in… I get it, girl just wanted to show off her sweet moves. My husband, on the other hand, call its bluff from the get-go. Kudos to you, hubby…apparently you’re on Jimmy Kimmel’s wavelength. He was the mastermind behind this epic prank and it was pretty awesome. If you missed it, click the picture below for the original video!

Finally, the last little piece of the internet that made me smile today was a video of a man waking up from surgery with a bout of temporary amnesia and finding out that the pretty lady sitting next to him was actually his wife. It’s really an adorable video, but I can’t help but think that Kimmel was up to no good again. Either way, check out this sweet video by clicking below!

That and so much more…I’m talking about Fashion’s Night Out and Mercedes Benz Fashion Week… Hello September, could you BE more amazing already?! Unfortunately, I wasn’t cool enough able to attend either, but one day… one day, I will and it will be glorious. Hey, if I can’t be there, I’ll blog here…right? Right.

For those of you who don’t know, Fashion’s Night Out, of FNO for short, occurs once a year across the globe.  Jet-setters get your passports ready, FNO spans 19 countries from Australia to China, to Italy to Russia, to the UK and back to the good old US of A. FNO events showcase designers, models, fashion editors, and celebrities and was created in 2009 (2011 in Boston) by American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC and Co. and the City of New York.  According to NYCgo.com, FNO “began as a collaboration intended to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping.”  Judging by its overwhelming publicity and countless instagram and twitter photos, it looks like the objective was certainly met.

Check out a few FNO pictures from my spot in the world!

This was just a small prequel to some fantastic Mercedes Benz Fashion Week coverage coming soon! Until then, enjoy the fall-ish weather if you’ve got it, step on a few crunchy leaves (with a cute boot of course), and continue to drool over all the great fall patterns, colors, and fabrics, I know I will.
