So once again I must apologize for taking an unannounced absence oh loyal readers. These past few months, I’ve been occupied dealing with the business (aka the boring) side of fashion. Ok, perhaps boring is too strong of a word, because the reality was far from boring but rather challenging I suppose. Sadly, rather than blogging, I’ve been opening up a brand new store. So instead of sitting front row at fashion shows, or hanging out with Mickey Mouse I’ve been recruiting a sales team, training and merchandising for a brand new store that has already achieved a million dollars. So while that’s impressive, and I do feel more rounded as a professional after this experience, I can’t help but feel as though I’ve missed out on life these past few months.
Yes, I’m beyond grateful for the opportunities that present themselves daily, and I really do love my job, well most days anyways. However, May is my favorite month of the year by far, and I feel like I missed out on so much! April showers are supposed to bring May flowers. So naturally I was beyond stoked to learn that not far from where I work, there was not just a garden, but a field of flowers! I tried so hard to make it before their season ended, however between bridal party engagements and 6 day work weeks comprised of 16 hour days, it just never worked out. This determination to get to this what I presume to be a breathtakingly beautiful place has turned into a fashion obsession. I didn’t purposefully go out and look for a floral top, however on a trip to Forever 21 in search of a birthday outfit I stumbled upon this fabulous piece. If I can’t visit the flowers at least I can wear them. They say that fashion is an art form. A mean of expressing ones’ self. This was my way of saying, all I really wanted to do was see the flowers.
