In one of my classes, we are talking about visual presentations. We spoke of how some people find success by making certain accessories or colors a permanent part of their visual presentation. Although I had never thought of this, this past season I basically wore oxblood, black and white every other day. Who didn’t, am i right? But anyhow, it was 61 degrees f. in Chicago this past week, so here is my last ode to winter’s color oxblood!

This faux fur jacket is seriously my favorite thing in the world. Every time I wear it I kind of, sort of feel like I rule the world. The power of clothes. NBD.
It is the first day of a new year, 2013 and yet 2012 already feels ages ago. A year ago to this date things were not so well but then halfway through the year my life improved immensely. Amongst the best positives of 2012 were a new job, new friends, a place on Lake Shore Drive and travel. For two weeks in December I was able to explore Morocco, which was incredible. The colors, the hospitality, the landscapes, the arts, everything was just so surreal. It was a rough trip because we kept moving around from city to city, and I did lose my favorite pair of pants somewhere in Morocco but… I got to see a shooting star, ride a camel, sleep in the middle of a desert, hang out with artsy Moroccans, substitute a taxi with a horse carriage, learn Moroccan Arabic, bargain in the medinas,and I would do it all over again If I could. I did also get to visit Paris and Madrid but more on that later.
