A 2010 Retrospective: July to December

I thought the wrap up to 2010 was long overdue, so lets proceed!
July was all about finding my groove in retail. While it didn't quite work out, I got to experiment in the field of clothing, which I think helped me settle on some long term goals, as well as embrace some very feminine patterns. Prior to this experience I didn't really like clothes that had a lot of color or craziness, I think it taught me how to mix my classic pieces with a bit of flair.

August saw me full swing into a desk job in the accounting department for a real estate management company. With the new job, I definitely tried to play the part in terms of my wardrobe. Hey, the whole reason I got into business was for the power suits and stilettos, right?

Ah, my love of the pencil skirt. It shall live on forever.

Once I became a little more comfortable with my corporate environment, I started mixing it up a bit, hence the hiking boots and chunky knits. While I love the professional look, it's good to know I can be a little more relaxed in the office environment and still get respect from clients and peers.

November birthed my new baby. NO I didn't adopt a random child, just a DSLR, which I'm still trying to figure out how to use properly... I also started looking for a lot more vintage pieces. I fell in love with the Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton Runways for S/S 11 and wanted to try out the midi-skirt.

December was just plain crazy. I took on a lot of new responsibilities at work, and it was the first Christmas I went all out for everyone.. having a full time job does that! So needless to say blogging took a bit of a back burner. I will however be back in full swing for 2011!
I can't wait to see what this new year brings! New courses, new hobbies, and of course, a new house.

Here's to a New Year!
