Oh, what a day. By 9am, I was ready for a redo, which would've had me sleep in just a bit longer. First, I went on a run that turned into Nausea Fest 2010. And, of course, I didn't have my phone with me and spent about a half hour walking 10 feet, then rolling into a ball for a minute, then another 10 feet, then a ball for a minute - until I finally got home. I do it to myself a few times a year and will eventually learn my lesson.
Then, I went to plug in my laptop to realize that the 3rd prong of the plug was still in the outlet from last night. Oh, joy. Luckily, I got it out without electrocuting myself and my computer is still under warranty, so Dell is replacing my power cord. The best thing about a crappy morning is that it leaves lots and lots of room for improvement.
And since things started off so dumpy, it only seemed fitting that Iggy was taking a giant dump in the background of half of my photos. Don't worry - I'll spare you the photographic evidence, since it was butt to camera and all. Thanks, buddy...
On the bright side, do you like my new dress? After the Weardrobe Conference, Gilt Groupe gave us a very generous credit at their super sale site, which includes Gilt Fuse. Gilt Fuse is much more my style - you know, cheaper and all. So, when I saw this dress, I fell in love with the shape and print. But alas, when I tried to add it to my cart, it was sold out. Sad face. However, when we met with the Gilt girls, they suggested to always use the "wait list" button if you can't get an item. That way, if one becomes available, it's yours!
Well, folks, it worked! A few days ago, I got an email saying that my wait listed dress was now available. So, I scooped it up, and still have a little more credit to spare. If you're not a Gilt Group member, click here to register or use the link in my sidebar.
The fabric is such a cool print and I love that it's springy while still appropriate for winter wear. And paired under my gray moto jacket? Exactly what I wanted!
