I'm usually not the type to try shoes in a variety of colors. I don't stray outside the usual shoe color like black, nude, or red, but I decided recently that I want to start adding some color into my shoe collection. So, here, I introduce you to my new babies! Absolutely in love with them! I love the pointy toe heel, the ankle strap and especially the color. For some reason, I seem to think they can go with everything! They can give every outfit that extra "kick".

There is, however, a sad little detail. They're too small!! I ordered these shoes online and I knew they were going to be to small, I knew it, but I got them anyway just hoping. They're only a size and a half too small so I can actually still get into them and wear them. It's just going to be a bit more painful than usual. I'm positive by wearing these they will loosen up a bit and get comfortable, because they're really just too tight. I could send them back but I REALLY love them and like I said, their out of my size. However, I will be ordering another pair of these shoes in fuchsia and royal blue. I love them just that much. 

I actually received two more pairs of shoes in the mail today ( I love coming home to packages), one I love and the other not so much. I'll be showing those later. These were just my favorite. Oh yeah,  they look amazing on!! 

I'm off to go find a good romantic-comedy to watch on netflix! xoxo

"Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else."

I guess you can say that I'm never satisfied. Wasn't I really excited in my other post about my new position? Can you believe that excitement is totally non-existent now? Or could you believe that I absolutely hate my job? Who would have thought? I'm styling! That's what I love to do, but I must say, there is much more to being a merchandiser than just simply putting clothes on a mannequin. Not that I wasn't prepared for that. I did, after all, take visual merchandising classes in school. I just wasn't aware of how much I actually hate being a visual merchandiser.

I literally have no fun. Styling isn't even fun. Why? Because you're so focused on making sure that you create "the look" they're going for that you miss the fun part. On top of that, mannequins are the devil. They are these evil things that just do not want to cooperate with you. They also way a ton! Sometimes I have to get on a ladder and lift these huge things up to put them on a shelf and while I'm doing that they like to fall apart! Anyway, by the end of the day I'm completely exhausted, very upset, and depressed that I have to come back the next day and do it all over again. Not to mention that I sometimes work 10-14 hour days. And to put the icing on the cake, I still haven't actually got the promotion or my raise! It's been a month and two weeks. I thought this would make being in Miami a bit better for me. I was wrong, it made it much worse.

Now that I'm done complaining, I have much catching up to do with you guys. A few things have changed within the last month. For me, none of it is good changes. I hate complaining but I'm at a low right now, been here for a while now. I'm actually in the process of searching for some good motivational and inspirational books to get me out of my funk. Something to help me to see the good things in my current situation. But for now, I have to go get in the shower and get ready for work.

By the way, everything went wrong with this shoot. That's why there are no full body shots. I'm disappointed I couldn't show the details of my pants but these pics will have to do right?
