Sight seeing at Walden Galleria

Yesterday I went to the Walden Galleria mall (in Buffalo) and saw some interesting things.  I had an interview with Forever 21, but it was impossible to leave without popping into a few stores.. the result? This blog post.

I saw pink eyeliner.

I have mixed feelings about pink eyeliner.  I really like the color, but I’m not sure what it does to the eyes?  Emphasize veins?  I’ve been hunting for a pink eyeliner, now that I’ve found one at Sephora, now I might understand why the color is hard to find.

I saw impossible to wash rhinestone studded tops.

I’m not one for buying clothes out of practicality, but COME ON.  I saw so many rhinestone studded necklines on tops today, and I have no idea how you could wash them.  Even if I decided to go at it by hand (LOL) they would become damaged.

I saw lots of wedge sneakers.

Nobody can convince me that combining wedges and sneakers is a good thing.  Wedges are worn for height and sneakers are worn for comfort.  They are two separate animals!  I am anti-wedge sneakers.  Barf me. Literal trend vomit.

I saw an indigo denim jacket. (and now I want it)

Both Loft and The Limited had very cute dark denim jackets.  I had a faded denim crop jacket in like 7th grade and it was so ugly that it ruined denim jackets for a really long time… but I can already see how cute and essential an indigo denim jacket will be this fall so I need one. Obviously.

I saw the perfect black leather pumps.

I don’t own the perfect pair of black leather heels. THERE. I SAID IT.  I don’t know why I haven’t invested money into a quality pair, but I need to.  And I saw ones that might have passed the test at Banana Republic.. but I didn’t try them on.  I wasn’t in the mood to spend $$$.

When I wasn’t sight seeing, I was shopping of course. I bought 2 pairs of ankle pants from The Limited.  They were only $10 a pair!!  It’s hard to be thrifty at Walden Galleria because it’s so big and there are so many tempting options.  I paid more in gas to get to and from the mall and I found out the Visual Merchandising Position was already taken at Forever 21 so if it weren’t for my awesome deal the trip would have been somewhat of a waste.

What “sights do you see” at the mall?

Plane ride to LaGuardia

Hello fellow preppies,

I am currently aboard  a CRJ700 on my way to Manhattan.  Well, LaGuardia to be exact.  I have high expectations for the concrete jungle where dreams are made of, lets hope they are fulfilled.  Tomorrow is my interview with Coach.  I packed a few options to wear, because it’s really crucial I have a nice professional outfit.  Tonight I am going to a comedy show, so whichever dress I don’t pick for the interview can be used for that.  Sitting near people on their way to Florida and other warm places leaves me disappointed in the weather of New York.  My flight was canceled yesterday due to this disastrous winter.  Don’t the weather gods understand that it’s March?  I am comfy yet fashion forward.  I am wearing my cream steve madden boots I bought last summer, gray ponte pant leggings, a beige oversized sweater, floral scarf, and navy polo hat.  My jewelry is minimal due to the security measures at the airport and my nails are a chipped lavender.  I didn’t have time to put on the banned emerald green that I can only get away with on my days outside Coach.  It’s a shame really.

From the airport I am taking a super shuttle to my apartment.  It’s so weird to say, and know that I am responsible for getting somewhere on my own.  I am meeting my friend Amy there, but I am not sure when he bus gets in.  The Wifi let me down on the airplane, GoGo wasn’t feeling it today.   We’re currently descending, and my ears feel like too balloons with electric razors on them.  Odd description I know.  LIM was closed due to snow today, so it doesn’t look like I will be visiting the school.  FIT is too stone cold to let anyone look around with out an organized tour.  It looks like I will be ordering delivery sushi and organizing a shopping expedition until Amy comes.  Can you imagine relaxing in the city that never sleeps?  That’s an oxymoron.  It’s nice to be away from the quaint town I live in.  I am slowly getting nervous to see giant skyscrapers and complete unfamiliarity though.  It will be exciting!
