It's me- Desperado. I'm outside of your window in a trench coat, holding a radio over my head, begging for you. Begging for you....to vote for meee in a little Rent The Runway contest on the one, the only- Facebook. I'm a big fan of RTR- it's the means by which I am able to rock a $1200 dress like it ain't no thang. So when I saw that they have weekly contests where you can submit a picture wearing one of their dresses I thought perhaps I shall do so. I've rented half a dozen dresses from the site and sent in pictures of me in all of them, and this week I got a congratulatory email saying that they chose a picture of me in the Tibi Calla Dress
So if you have a moment to spare while you're online stalking your x-boyfriend's x-girlfriend's brother's new girlfriend I'd really be grateful if you clicked this link and then "Liked" the picture. If you're not already a fan of RTR then you just have to give them a thumbs up first.
I am one of 5 nominees, so please feel free to check out their pictures as well, and if you feel like they deserve to win- by all means give them your vote. I mean, I'll never talk to you again, but yea go for it. No seriously, I want to be a good sport.
The voting is open until Thursday and the winner will be announced on Friday. Fingers crossed!
If you are kind enough to vote- thank you so much for putting me one step closer to not being the biggest loser.
THANK YOU KIND STRANGERS!

Today I watched a single solitary leaf detach from a tree and slowly spiral downward until it hit the ground while I yelled, "Noooohoooooo" ('no' in slow motion). That's pretty much the end of the story, but I wanted to share with you that right now Old Navy has really versatile & transitional basics for this "in- between" time when it's not appropriate to wear pink daisy dukes OR a ski suit. I'm for reals y'all, they have the BEST stuff in stock. I couldn't believe it, but I was acting the same way looking at their website as I do browsing Net-a-Porter- "I want it alllllllll! wah waaah waaaah." On OldNavy.com though, I can actually afford it all. They've got me covered for the next couple of months while all the leaves make their way down to the street where they will turn brown and crunchy, and then get run over by cars and turn to mulch, and then blow all over my yard, and become a big pain in the ass. Note to self: take money I save shopping @ Old Navy and hire a landscaper. Holler if ya hear me, Kathy Lee Gifford! (I feel like she has lots of landscapers)

I deliberately left Carolina Herrera and Christian Siriano out of my last post recapping my fashion week favorites because although those collections were supa fab, these two were on a whooooole nother level. For reals, I'm considering going to Kinko's and printing Christian Siriano's Spring 12 line into wall paper and covering my room floor to ceiling with it. If Alex says no I may not do that, then I'm definitely getting it all laminated and framed.

It's the most wonderful time of the year, it's the hap-happiest season of all.
I like wacky, but I can't do ugly. My heart pounds only for pretty. And you can bet your hot cross buns that these collections almost put me into cardiac arrest. I have combed through every single RTW show I could find and these are all of my favorite fashion week picks. Sweet Jeezus, I LUH-HUH-HUV being a girl.
