As many of you know, I work in the highly crazed, manic, and fabulous world of fashion. There may also be a contingent of readers who know that it is currently New York fashion week (or the end there of) and I’m sure there is a select few of you know that “fashion week” really means about a month and a half.
For the past 6 weeks I have been a crazed, maniacal fashion head case working the collections and basically being a fashion robot. I work 14 hour days, in 5 inch heels, 7 days a week.
How about that for math?
For as painful and draining this is (and it happens 6 times a year; 3 collections a season!) it’s what we fashion folks all thrive off of, the season of fresh ideas and new trends. I have learned to be wise with my time and have come to rely on a few must have staples that will last me till the final fashion finish line which I will share with you now!
1) No 6 Clogs
I know, I know I have extolled the many merits of these chic and INSANELY comfortable shoes over and over again. But I’m telling you I have converted MANY and during these crazy times where Louboutins make you consider self amputation, these stylish and covetable shoes give you height, comfort, and with their wood heels (click clack click clack) alert the masses that a fashionista is coming.
2) Trader Joes Salt and Pepper Rice Crisps
There are few things less chic than eating. I kid, I kid however there are few things that we have less time for than eating shortly followed by sleeping, breathing, and peeing. But when you do have a fleeting 2 seconds of peace these treats offer me the crunch and salt I crave to sate my snack tooth. Bonus: there are like 40 crisps a serving so you feel like you get to eat a boatload for 120 calories (appox)
embarrassingly enough there have been more than a few days where my daily caloric intake was monopolized by these delicious crunchies and the chocolate hearts that were sitting around the office for Valentine’s Day. WHOOPS.
Call me Amy Winehouse and stick a direct line into my arm because I would actually be dead if it weren’t for this stuff. Find it, buy it, thank me later.
