It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was high school, and if you are anything like me, your wardrobe consisted of too much animal print, shrunken graphic tees, and heavy eyeliner. I was (and am!) a classy broad, so my suburban Midwest fashion sense was knocking it out of park in the early 2000’s. In all seriousness, most of those pieces (I’d struggle to say any of that was ever trend) have been long tossed away. But every now and then, it’s fun to remember and even bring back some of the less terrible items in small doses. For this week’s Throwback Thursday, I dedicated an entire Polyvore set to the years 2003-2007. Long live the memories, but may the fashion statements (for the most part) rest in peace.
Soooo I start a new job today! It’s basically a glorified version of my old job, only for a new brand targeting a youthful, hip demographic. I’m so lucky and excited to be doing a job I enjoy, with some kick-ass people, in the city I love. Here’s a Polyvore (I’m a little obsessed) showcasing some of the looks I’m hoping to rock in my first few weeks, now that wearing jeans and fashionable pieces is not permissible, but encouraged.
