Chanel Spring Ready To Wear 2014 is pretty amazing. I know I’m late on this but I love the bags this season. The collection reminds me of Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink meets Judy Jetson meets art museum. Vibrant. Luxe. Beautiful. Chanel.
So let’s talk who wants to invest in my $3400 backpack?
“The minute you think the past was better, your present becomes secondhand and you become vintage, it’s OK for clothes, not that great for people.”–Karl Lagerfeld
Honestly, I could learn every valuable lesson about life and apply it to any situation if I read “The World According To Karl” and that’s a fact. There’s a quote for every possible thing as told in a rather matter of fact way. I understand his bitchiness. I understand.
I learned a few valuable lessons while pressing “pause” and taking a hiatus. That I cannot take a hiatus because I get bored. I don’t regret anything because all things happen for a reason. I learned that lesson that it’s OK to actually to do what I want in life because it’s my life and nobody has to live it but me.
One of my best friends who I’ve been friends with since I was 16 just turned 30. We’re born 2 years and 2 months apart on the same day. Crazy. As I get older and learn lessons and actually apply them, it’s a great feeling. Now, I think the most important lesson on the agenda to learn before 30 is “How To Drive A Car”, that’ll be interesting!
Another valuable lesson is to always give your potential new people in your life an audition. It’s like trying on clothes but you try them out on social media sites and if it doesn’t mesh. BYE, FELICIA!
Somebody could have told me my shirt was not tucked!

Remember way back when I was obsessed with CA by Cinzia Araia’s Rabbit Sneaker? . Remember how much I loved that shoe. I even used the brand as a marketing project assignment which I got an A- despite not being able to get in touch with the right department because of the Italian Stock Market rules, do you remember?
Then the day came that I was going to go buy myself a pair. I thought that I deserved it. Only to get to Barney’s and find out that being a unisex shoe and European it was cut a little bit more on the narrow side so it wouldn’t work for me. *Insert Tear Face*
I was able to recover from my “Life Is Over Moment” but I found myself still drawn to Cinzia’s brand philosophy “Vison-design. A technical description of Cinzia Araia’s shoes.” and my favorite line “A transformation always in progress.” So in the midst of my shoe shopping addiction, I always find myself on the same sites and I thought why not check up what Cinzia is up to. Imelda, Goddess of Shoes heard my cries. The menswear line for 2014 is on point.
This is my second chance and I hope that I never have to go through this again. They’re just so effortless.
Gold is such a statement piece whether it’s jewelry or clothing. Try finding the right shade and you’ve got yourself a problem. I actually really like the gold looks that came out for the 2014 season.
Bold. Metallic. Luxe. Daring. Walk The Gold……

“Problems arise in that one has to find a balance between what people need from you and what you need for yourself.”–Jessye Norman
I’m so glad I found that quote. How do you find the balance? No, really someone tell me. I’m on a quest for different coping mechanisms so that I don’t internalize things. It can be such a draining habit to internal everything that I would absorb throughout the day or even over the years started clouding my energy and creating an air of negativity. As I begin a new chapter in life, I want actually give my all without any kind of energy looming over.
I keep telling myself that I’m going to try yoga. I keep looking at Lululemon thinking “I would have the cutest outfit for yoga.” Although, I’m pretty sure that’s not the point of why people go. So Sunday morning, I spent most of the morning reading different perspectives. One of my clients/friend/fellow blogger has her own business and blog which focuses on yoga, self-love, Chakras, etc.I highly recommend it. Jenny Ravikumar, she’ll Skype with you while working on your plan.. No really. Take a look for yourself. It really inspired me to take this new chapter on in a different approach. A bit of self-love never hurt anybody, right?
How do you find balance in life?
“Darling, all I require is fabulous shoes.”–Pinterest
Normal by day. Glow at night in Jeffrey Campbell Cura. This is the best shoe on earth if I dare say so. It’s one of the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned. It’s an actual sneaker that I could go jogging in. They’re super cute. They’re subtle which for me is a bit of a change.
Just a simple shoe. White leather. Black laces. A bit of metal detail near the rubber sole. A normal sneaker that says “Hey, I’ve got style.” So you might actually be catching me in a lie now when I say they are “normal” because at night when the lights go off these babies glow.
I mean they glow in the dark and not a cheesy way but in a way that’s definitely going to make heads turn. Every store I went into Friday night someone complimented them. One person even said “It looks like a futuristic fashion jogging shoe.” I’ll take it!
Night jogging is not a problem anymore(probably more for the fact that I don’t jog anyways) and they’re so comfortable! I almost really want to get a pair of the Tronic’s because they’re high tops with silver contrasting. However, where am I really going to where these.
Note: The issue that I had with the leather tearing at the seam began to happen after wearing them. Overall, the joggers are worth the money. I hope next season they come back with a different glow color.
