Prada & Pressed for Time
Happy Friday everyone! This week, I got the latest issue of InStyle Magazine (which I plan to read by the pool tomorrow!) in the mail and I was happy to see one of my favorite funny girls, Tina Fey, on the cover. When I opened the magazine, I was even more excited to see Tina rocking the Prada dress that has been ubiquitous this season. I love this dress. It's just so fun and happy, and I love the unexpected combination of pink black and orange. It appeared in Prada's Spring 2011 Runway collection, but received a lot of press when up-and-comer Hailee Steinfeld wore it to the SAG Awards in January. I think that she made a lot of really smart fashion choices throughout awards season, however, this Prada dress was my favorite pick of hers. It's classy while still being fresh and age-appropriate. The dress also appeared on Amanda Seyfried's April cover of Elle magazine, and I'm a huge fan of hers and thought the dress was perfect for a spring cover. I just love this dress, and if I had the money/place to wear it, it would be mine.
Another thing that is making me happy on this sunny Friday is the fact that I finally got this pair of boots fixed that have been missing the heel tips for quite some time now. Did I finally get the motivation to actually take them in to get repaired? Nope. Instead I used a service called Pressed 4 Time, which gets my vote for one of the best ideas ever. The come to your office, pick up your dry cleaning/repairs, and then come back a few days later and drop it off at your office. Genius! And because this was my first time using them, the did the boot repair for now charge. How awesome is that? Completing tasks with zero effort = Awesome. Happy weekend y'all.
