Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
Personally, I’m more inclined to watch the Kitten Bowl. Josh did not know what this amazing phenomenon was, so I had to interrupt my blogging to show him a clip from the 2016 Kitten Bowl.
Nevertheless, thank you, football lovers, for giving us ball-bored others an opportunity to partake in basically a second Thanksgiving. Can I get an amen, and pass the wings, please.
Although we’re freshly unpacked from our Paris trip, Josh is re-packing my suitcase for New York City Fashion Week! We were graciously invited by Urban Southern to join them for their shows. It’ll be a first time experience for both of us, and although we won’t have access to the fashion shows I’m dying to attend someday, we’ll be there.
But the best part? Josh is going shopping to dress me for NYCFW. Oh. Yeah. Seriously, this blog is the best idea I’ve ever had. I can’t tell you how many times Josh has said, “I really want to put together this look for you, but we need to get you…” fill in the blank.
Oh, twist my arm. You’re so right, babe. “We” really do need to invest in a leather bomber. And yes,”we” really do need a whole new wardrobe if we’re going to a fashion show together.
Obviously he takes this year-long challenge pretty seriously.
NYFW isn’t until next week, though. And after we were graciously invited, we still had to get through this week… and we were seriously ready for the weekend. Taking pictures every day is stressful. Seriously considering putting an ad for a full time photographer on Craigslist.
Just a minute ago, I was scrolling back through my first and second blog posts, curious to see any changes in Josh’s styling then and now. He’s had 30+ days of having to plan ahead, envision looks, and piece together my outfits. It’s been a trial and error process, to be sure.
One characteristic stood out: Josh has a keen interest in the little details. He shows the same attention to detail with his hobbies and own style, so I shouldn’t be surprised. But not everyone notices interesting subtleties. I didn’t even catch how he matched the blue yarn and feathers in this hat and necklace until I was looking at the picture.
Ah, this outfit… It seems a bit underwhelming for Josh’s style, doesn’t it?
That’s because I influenced his choice for this day. Now, before you jump to conclusions, technically we didn’t break any rules for this day! I had a fitting in D.C. that morning, and I was running late and without an outfit (it was a busy week).
While Josh was scrambling to put something together, I was nosing around him, suggesting ideas: “Use my black pants, they’ll go with anything. No, not those shoes, I need heels for a fitting! No not those, I have to be able to walk for awhile! Not that shirt, I have to get out of it easily without getting makeup on the shirt. Button-down, Josh, I need a button-down!”
Well, my “suggestions” severely limited his choices. So guess what? I ended up looking like I had dressed myself. ‘Cause… I kind of did. And guess what else? It was functional for my fitting, but as an outfit belonging to a fashion blog, it was meh.
So, we’re a month in. All is well, but we’re running low on blog ideas. I’ve started compiling a list of potential future posts, but I’d love to know: What do you want to see more of in these weekly posts? Some options include…
- Having Josh co-write and add his thoughts on each outfit
- Weekly themes (50’s week, how-to week, etc.)
- More live videos of Josh putting outfits together, being interviewed, etc.
- Insight into the creative process behind this blog
- Fun give-aways/contests
Comment below and let me know what you think!
Okay, back to fashion. This was our collective favorite outfit from this week.
Who wore it better? 😉
Josh and I have been staring at the screen for ten minutes trying to think of a conclusion to this post. That’s just the type of week it’s been.
I give up. Time to put this away and go watch the commercials.
