I am infinitely bored at work and decided to spend a more productive use of my time doing something that I love: not working. If it were up to me (and well, it is) my job would consist of the following:
- reading fashion magazines, print and otherwise;
- surfing the interwebs for fashion blogs (see the links I heart for some of my favourites);
- perusing Twitter for the instantaneous fashion feeds; and
- virtual window shopping, which will more than likely turn into a purchase…or two.
All of the ‘tasks’ above would of course result in a bi-weekly allowance, but only just enough for me to afford separates from Miu Miu, Céline, Lanvin, The Row etc., all holed up at Holt Renfrew (there will come a time when I can walk into that store and feel like I belong). This job may or may not already exist, I’ll find out sooner or later. But for now, can’t a girl dream?
Speaking of interwebs and fashion blogs, I’d like to highlight a current favourite, Atlantic-Pacific by Blair Eadie from San Francisco. Her use of colour and layering is simply genius. Every post amazes me as she never fails to disappoint. My blogger role model. Look at the photos below and you’ll see what I mean.
That last ensemble above is reminiscent of this post. This entire exercise was a more productive use of my time. Maybe I should start posting while at work, increasing frequency and allowing for a less arduous pursuit of happiness. Something to think about…
Until next time, “stay classy San Diego”!
