in What I Wore

Ummmmm, this is actually what I wore to work LAST Friday.


1. How To Pack For A Trip

Somebody please give this woman an award.  Even when she went on a 13-day trip to Peru, she never checked a bag.  Packing Advice From a Travel Pro Who Has NEVER Checked A Bag .  My Caribbean people, take note.  (via Refinery29)

2. Connecticut Startup ChicandBeautiful Combines Weight Loss With Fashion

Katherine, please hurry up and get this website up and running. This is sure to be hit.

ChicandBeautiful aims to help women college-aged and above who are working on losing weight deal with having to buy an entirely new wardrobe with every size decrease.  Users with clothes that no longer fit can request a box for those items to send back to ChicandBeautiful”

3. Instagram for Android

Man, the availability of instagram on the android platform is the best thing since slice bread.  Those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook know that I have already been working out the camera on my new Samsung Galaxy.  When I found out that Instagram was available for android, I immediately downloaded the software and I a hooked. I’ve only posted a few of my own photos, but I am having a wonderful time looking at everyone elses.  If you are looking for a quick overview or what you can do on instagram then check out Grit&Glamour’s Making Masterpieces with Instagram + PhotoADay Tips and Getting Started With Instagram For Android (via CNet).

4.  Look of the Week

I absolutely LOVE the combination of red and turquoise in Alison Gray’s outfit.  As if the color combination wasn’t enough drama she throws in a floral clutch.   (via WardrobeOxygyen)

5. Clothes and Self Perception

One of my co-worker’s shared this article with me earlier this week.  I haven’t tried to channel my inner nerd by wearing a white lab coat or anything, but I do know that I am received differently when I am dressed a certain way and I act accordingly.  Check out the New York Times Mind Games: Sometimes A White Coat Isn’t Just a White Coat.

6. Jane Wants A Blog

Jane Aldridge of SeaOfShoes is one of the most popular and successful bloggers in fashion blog land.  Matter of fact, she is one of the bloggers that inspired me to start my own blog.  However, the rumor swirling through fashion blog land is that her parents doled out $70,000 so that she could purchase her sea of shoes to start her blog.   So does that mean that the success of blogs are  limited to skinny, blond chicks who are under 25 AND have the resource to access labels that most of us can only fantasize about and $70,000 worth of stuff?
