Why, of course!

So sometimes as an intern it's easy to get discouraged. You utter silly nuances, like "my life is going nowhere" and "I feel like I'm waisting my time". You make ugly faces without realizing it, and then you wallow away and watch silly shows like Janice Dickensons' Modeling Agency.

And then your boss mentions the huge annual fashion show. In May. Which just so happens to be 5 months after your internship ends, and she looks over at you and says, "Hopefully you'll be around to help with that - could you model?" Why yes, I could do that.

So a family member of mine is getting married, and I have been put in charge of outfits. And food-y ideas. The thing I can't get enough of? Lace gloves. Roberto Cavalli has a great pair, like these..! They make me sigh. They give me great creative ideas, and sent me straight to the fabric store.

I know I have said this before, but I am excited about Fall 2008. Ralf Lauren has done it again, and another favorite of mine this fall is Furla. I love the crisp fadora's and the shiny patent leather bags; and that little fashion prediction that I snuck in about wedge booties for Spring this year? I'm still holding on to that! This ad for Ralf Lauren reminded me so much of my fourth grade girl scouts holloween party. Why? Because I went dressed up as a fashion designer. I wore my mothers black sequined high waisted, long length skirt with a black heels (that were too big), a black turtle neck, and my hair in a bun. Looks like Lauren and I were in agreement all along! Now if I could just get him to make me a dress. I love that hat!
