I have been waiting and waiting to tell you. I am just horrible at surprises. I think it comes from my childhood. My mom would buy our birthday presents months in advance, often with us approving what we wanted, and she would buy it there on the spot and say, “Now just remember, this is for your birthday!” I think she just couldn’t stand to keep a secret that long!
I have been vascillating between sharing my surprise on the blog, or just showing up and yelling, “SURPRISE”. Several of my blogging friends have been invited to attend as well and I wanted so badly to keep the cat in the bag. I can’t do it. So here it is……
While I won’t be in Dallas for my beloved Fashion’s Night Out, I will be in New York instead. Not too shabby.
You also know how often I turn to Brizo for my plumbing recommendations. Jason Wu has been designing for Brizo for years. Here are a few of my projects where I used Brizo recently:
So you can guess what I have been up to since finding out…..DECIDING WHAT TO PACK (AND PURCHASE)! So in order to be ready and stay calm, I have made a checklist of every possible fashion option and then began editing profusely. Dinner options – check. Fashion show options – check. Boots – high and low – check. And most importantly – extra batteries and mobile chargers. I have found that when I run out of battery on my camera or my phone (and miss a shot or can’t tweet or Facebook post), I panic. All avoided by having all the backup power I need.
I hope your Fall plans include great work travel and I promise to give you the behind-the-scenes scoop of Fashion Week with Brizo and Jason Wu. Don’t forget when you are on a deadline for a project OR a trip, to plan ahead, have a backup plan and you will be able to fully enjoy the experience!
Here is a view of my Jason Wu favorites for Fall 2012. I am sure one of these beautiful pieces could make its way into your Fall closet if you hurry….in stores now.
