Outlet Shopping

Spent the day yesterday at the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets with my family, wandering around the fabulous stores oggling the cheap prices. Once upon a time I, as a teenager, worked in these outlets, but things have changed a bit since then, and so have my tastes and I; which I’m fully thankful for. I now pay attention to different stores than I did back then. For example, there’s a Saks outlet, Barney’s outlet, BCBG, Banana Republic, Guess, and newly added Bloomingdale’s! Compared to back then when all I cared for was Nine West, PacSun, Zumiez, and HotTopic. I was ecstatic when poking around I found an Alexander Wang sweater on sale for $129 in the Barney’s outlet. Ofcourse, that’s still above my budget, but it’s plausible with some thought out saving.
Anyway, the point of the day was to get out of the house, enjoy the sunshine and some fashion, and I definitely did!

Day Job: GaGa’s Workshop

And the worst blogger award goes to… Sahra of EffortllessCool!

But really guys, I’m sorry. Between the bullshit that is my life, my full time seasonal gig, and preparing to move, and not having anyone to help me take photos, I’ve been totally slacking on blogging. Sorry guys!

I’ve been working SO much, almost 40 hours a week in retail, sticking to the wardrobe requirements daily.
I’ve been trying on some of the products and playing around with make up too! And taking pictures, so here are some iPhone photos for your enjoyment!

And, on one lovely Saturday at work, I was asked to meet with Francisco Nars, of Nars make up, to do some signings for customers. My friend and co worker Michelle and I couldn’t resist a photo op with Francisco and Simon Doonan.

Now the shop/boutique itself is truly magnificent, though I can’t go into detail so you’ll have to come in and see for yourself!

Fashions Night Out

A week ago today was the second annual Fashions Night Out, which if you didn’t know, is a global shopping event where stores stay open late (the events are usually 6-11pm) for one night only with activities,celebrities, fashion shows, and more!
Last year I stayed pretty basic, just going to a few small shops before hitting up a fashion show. This year however, I decided to do the more major events and spots. This began at Bloomingdale’s on 60th. There were drinks, games, sales, artists, live performances and other special guests. While listening to music I shopped around and came across the All Saints set up in there. It was amazing, expect a post about it soon.

After Bloomie’s I met up with some friends to see Heidi Klum at Destination Maternity. There they were serving pizza slices, Magnolia cupcakes, refreshments, cookies, and sushi; everything a pregnant woman could ask for!

Afterwards my friends and I attempted Bergdorf’s. The line to get inside literally stretched round the block, but there was also a mini bock party going down…live window displays and entertainment.

Next stop was Barney’s, where the Olsen Twins were supposed to be hosting karaoke. The store was PACKED and POP chips and special edition waters were handed out to the guests.

Walking around on 5th avenue there was quite a crowd outside of Versace and Gant were creating quite a ruckus with their live models. Versace had gorgeous posers in their windows…while Gant attempting to be epic (they had a kegger last year) had a man…in the shower, in their window. Girls were stopping to take pictures of and with the handsome, built model who was definitely enjoying all the attention. Leave it to the heavy hitters to know how to get the crowd buzzing…

After waiting for my friend to meet Kim Kardashian, I finally called it a night and grabbed some margaritas with my friends!

Now, I just got back from NY yesterday so this is the first of many posts…get ready so Stevie Boi Shades, Alice + Olivia, and much more!
