I know that I've said how "busy" I am a few times, which is ironic because a few weeks back my friend Aaron and I had a conversation about how we find it so ridiculous when people use being "busy" as an excuse to get out of things. And how our response to those people should be "and I'm not? what the f*ck do you think I do all day, everyday? Play Mario brothers? No d*ck, I'm busy too". Regardless I ACTUALLY enjoy the hectic schedule, that my life offers and demands. I've learned to appreciate waking up early in the morning when New York seems to be just a little bit calmer and quieter, getting emails, meetings, projects, ideas, and even menial errands done before some people I know have even hit the snooze button on their alarm. Yesterday, today and tomorrow are testaments to my new outlook. I was selected as a top New York Blogger and invited to Bui-Lavry's showroom with limitless access to the 3 lines they rep (Maurie & Eve, Goddess of Babylon, Oscar the Third)'s Fall collections, to style 5 "Tess, of The Little Black List" outfits. After obsessing over just about every piece in all 3 collections, I made my selections,and headed out to another meeting. COME to 7 am THIS morning(no lies) I put the finishing touches on the outfits (shoes, accessories etc.) and shot all 5 looks. Luckily mother nature was in a good mood (unlike my lens! which is acting up...insert super sad and concerned face here) so I wasn't a total frigged bitch and actually smiled ;) Here is look 1, hope you like it, and let me know what you think....
