Awefulsome to the Max

I can’t believe it, but our major buying season is almost over. We just got back from our second trip to New York which, somehow, was probably even more fun than the first.

Some highlights:

  • the delicious fake meat at Red Bamboo
  • cookies and cream rice pudding at Rice to Riches
  • a tradeshow just for shoes (also known as “Did I die and go to heaven?“)
  • and, of course, a visit to the famed Beacon’s Closet in Brooklyn.

It’s funny: even when we spend the entire day shopping for “work”, all we want to do afterwards is shop some more. I left Beacon’s with this crazy little number…
Sequin Skirt!

Your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you! It is indeed covered in black sequins and trimmed in silver sequins. It’s pretty awefulsome, but I can’t wait to wear it. I’m hoping to work it into an outfit this week while we’re shopping our last major tradeshow of the season in the capital of all things sparkly and over the top – Las Vegas.

    It’s definately not something that I would think of wearing off the top of my head but, that’s why I love it. I love making such outrageous pieces work. Have fun shopping in Las Vegas!

    Thanks Maddi! I still haven’t had the opportunity to wear the skirt, it’s just so special that it really calls for a special occasion to match. Soon, very soon!
