Okay, first I have to say, I did something bad. I deleted all my illustrations that I have done for this blog. They are gone forever =(. Just letting you know if you were wondering why there are a ton of image gaps going back from this post.
So now the positive: Although I knew better, I wasn’t backing up images. This is just a reminder of the importance of doing so.
LESSON OF THE WEEK: BACKUP YOUR INFO!
Now onto the fun stuff:

I went out to dinner with a friend this weekend who had the cutest vintage coach handbag that could perfectly fit an 8.5 x 11 without screaming “I’m on my way to an interview!!!” and went great with her hipster bar/dinner look.
I am all about having multi-functional pieces and must admit, this is one of the staples I am missing, a day bag that doubles as a briefcase. I hate the looks of an actual brief case as much as carrying an almost big enough bag with papers sticking out the top.
So this MUST HAVE MONDAY is for all you chic chica’s on the job prowl. And taking the tip from my friend, to keep it professional, it’s got to well made. Best way to accomplish that and keep your budget in check is to go vintage. Make sure to snatch these up, they don’t make them like this any more.

Wearing red and pink can make you look like a walking valentine, but when I see someone make it super chic I am like “yeah!” Know what I’m saying?
Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli is one of those cases where I thought pink and red looked killer.
BUT, this pic topped as many worst dress lists as best. What do you think?
The hit and miss factor is what makes a true FUNKY FRIDAY. It takes some swagger to pull it off.
I used to be afraid of wearing red and pink because I thought they would wash me out. As it turns out, red and pink are equal opportunity colors, but you need to be aware of what shades to wear with your skin tone season.
First things first, let’s identify your skin tone:
WINTER Complexion: blue or pink undertones Skin: pale white, yellowish-olive, or dark Hair: generally brunettes but sometimes natural white-blondes fall in this category Eyes: dark colored Other hints: a lot of contrast between hair color, eye color and skin tone, many Asians and African Americans fall into this category
SUMMER Complexion: coolblue or pink undertones Skin: is pale, pink, porcelain white Hair: natural blondes, pale skin brunettes Other hints: low level contrast between eyes and hair
Complexion: golden undertones Skin: ruddy with orange tones Hair: redheads and brunettes Eyes: golden brown eyes Other hints: a lot of depth to their coloring and a spicy, earth tone quality to their hair color, eye color, and skin tone. varied coloring – ranging from golden blondes to brunettes and black hair coloring. Red-heads, excluding very fair auburn and strawberry blondes, are usually autumns. All red-heads are autumn or spring’s. Red-headed autumns often have porcelain white or very pale skin.
SPRING Complexion: golden undertones and are usually creamy white or peach Hair: straw-colored or strawberry red hair, Skin: freckles, rosy cheeks Eyes: blue or green eyes Other hints: natural golden blondes or auburn or strawberry blonde red-heads although very fair blue/ aqua eyed brunettes are sometimes spring
NOTE: It is often difficult to discern summer from winter, and autumn from spring. Remember that winters are usually brunettes while summers natural blondes. Springs tend to have pale eyes while autumns have dark eyes.
