gloves and discounts



I bought Bazaar's fall runway report (which I can't put down, there's just so much in it) and noticed a lot of lovelylovelylovely gloves. I find them so classy and elegant and the perfect touch for the chilly weather (that will hopefully come soon!) what do you guys think? the new fall/winter accessory? I know I'll be on the lookout for them.

Today I finally went to the AA factory store in downtown LA. AHHH!!! the prices are ridiculously better. Plus! they added an additional discount at the counter! what a steal. BUT, warning: be sure to check the items throughly, the zipper on my denim skirt was broken. thank goodness I've sewn before, or else I would've forgotten how to fix it (I ran into the same problem before while sewing). Other than that, I basically got everything half off. So, I'm never going to buy anything from their online store or regular stores again, haha. the drive to LA is worth it.

What did I get?

Yes. I've always wanted one ever since I saw The Row's video.

They didn't have black in small, very very very sad. But asphalt is close to it ;)

I have this one in light apricot (xs, supppper tight, so i got a small this time, haha). The fabric is so much nicer in person, i really love the mineral wash effect and how the fabric is softer, but stupid broken zipper that will soon be fixed. I don't mind, i got it half off (beats the $54 price tag) :)

...and a white tank.

I haven't been inspired to do any shoots. I have one scheduled next week, but the models and timing are a bit of an issue. Putting testing shoots together is a PAIN. I've been focused a lot on fashion, which is not a bad thing at all, but I really miss the carefree creative atmosphere of shooting. I feel more comfortable shooting in texas, I don't know why, I suppose there's just more nature there. I get more inspired by the location of the shoot than anything else, so, i suppose there aren't many accessible (i have no car) locations here in southern california, while in texas it's more like "let's do a shoot across the street on the beautiful wide green meadow":

I'm leaning towards gloves for fall too. And good deals you got from the AA warehouse.
