Pinterest is so Pinteresting!

I have just started really using Pinterest and I have to say, I love it! For my job I am always looking for amazing products and Pinterest is a great way to locate cool things but then also share them.

I've been pinning items for hours now and I can't stop. I bet there will be Pinterest support groups in the near future.

Check out my Pinterest page - maybe you'll see something you like.

Ready to start blogging again....

Well... It's been awhile since I've blogged but that is only because I have been sooooo busy enjoying my dream job as a buyer. I started out years ago on a mission to work my way into the fashion industry (from a web designer, mind you) and that finally panned out 2 years ago. It's been so amazing, fun and extremely busy! I recently realized I have removed myself from my hobbies of writing and socializing with the local fashion scene that I needed to jump back in - it's time! I hope you all welcome me back as you have all been missed.

Recently, I have transitioned into being the boys apparel buyer for the company I work for - the boys industry has so much to offer and this is going to be such a fun adventure.

I just got back from several days in Las Vegas for MAGIC and it was fantastic. I attended so many shows but my favorites were the men's show at MRKET and the Street and Slate sections of MAGIC. I found so many cool lines and people to chat with about kids and boys apparel.

I'm hoping to transition a bit of my day job interests here and still chat about local fashion. Hope you'll find it interesting. I've missed you!

Trend Report

Neiman Marcus is always on top of the newest trends and today their NM Trend Report email showed up where they call out lace as "Fall's Feminine Touch".  After looking through the lace selections it was hard to not pay attention to the Red Valentino lace Juliet-Sleeve top. It's going on my "need to have" list.

A few other Fall trends worth looking out for, according to Neiman Marcus, are:
