I finally did it...cut my hair!

I've been growing my hair out since the winter of 2002 and I've had ups and downs with my do. Anyone that's around me on a daily basis recently can tell you that I've been wanting to do something different with my hair. The quote that would come to mind is, "I want to chop it all off!" Well I finally decided to just do it! 2010 is all about taking action for me. I'm happy with my decision. What do you think? I'd love to hear your comments :)

A Leader in Style...

While waiting for a friend to get her street meat cart lunch in the frigid cold of NYC, I turned and said, "is that President Obama in a Weatherproof ad?" As we all turned to look it became clear that President Obama was in a Weatherproof ad right in the middle of Times Square. I thought it was pretty cool but is it right? When we headed back up to our office, the thought lingered with me. I couldn't remember seeing a president in an apparel ad before. I started to think, how did they do it? Did he get paid? A day after seeing the ad, I found out from my friend that Weatherproof found the picture of President Obama in one of their jackets and decided to just go with it. Gutsy move but what better way to do it then smack in the middle of Times Square. Apparently having the President of the United States in an ad campaign is illegal, so Weatherproof is suppose to take the ads down immediately. I'm glad I was able to capture this cool moment in history :) Try to catch it if you can!

New wardrobe!

I absolutely love the month of January! Not only is it my birthday month, it's also one of the best times to go shopping! January in the retail world is always know as the month of clearance. Stores start liquidating all the fall merchandise to make sure they have room for their new pretty spring things :) I've listed a few of my recent January sale destinations that are having great deals, enjoy!
Nine - They are having an amazing sale with 30%-50% off really cute winter boots (and other goodies). Plus I got free shipping, how sweet is that?! Check out the Frollic boots I snagged as a b-day gift (thanks mom!).
Banana Republic - Did you get Banana Republic gift card over the holidays? Well BR is having a promotion that if you use your gift card before the end of January you get 10% off your purchase. Don't you love the above photo of the pretty "bling" I got with my gift card at BR?
TopShop - I'm so happy there is a TopShop in NYC! I went in there today and they are having a huge 75% off sale. Sale racks on the second floor are categorized by size (nice) and price (very nice!). I recommend checking out the $30 and under wall of skirts or what's left of the now marked down Christopher Kane collection.
Happy Shopping!
