But among all the posts I'm trying/supposed to/wishing I could write, there's two that I'm absolutely dying to publish here. One is my fall fashion post for 2012, which is hands down my favorite post to write all year. (It also justifies the nonstop online browsing I've been doing for research purposes...no, J, I'm NOT "obsessively shopping", thank you very much...)
The other post is my BlogHer '12 wrap-up post, including my experience at Voices of the Year and video of my reading. I had so much to process from the conference (plus waiting for the video code so you all could share it with me) that the post is long overdue.
So this week, with E finally back in school (today!) I'm getting settled into a routine and checking items off my to-do list. Like buy diapers and organize the pantry, and write long overdue blog posts. And just when I started to do that...those two posts I mentioned above? Collided.
I'm a huge fashion lover, and Possessionista is one of my favorite fashion blogs. Not only do I love Dana Weiss' personal style (and her hilarious 'Bachelor' commentary on Twitter,) but she watches a ton of TV (I watch almost none) and sources the best clothes and accessories out there so all I have to do is check my email for her posts once a day and I know what's happening in small screen style. Even better, she loves the same (trashy) shows I do actually watch when I have time, like 'The Bachelorette' and 'Gossip Girl' and 'Pretty Little Liars.' The Possessionista even helped me (via an old friend and a Twitter plea) find Emily Maynard's awesome phoenix necklace...
So when an item I've already blogged about, pinned, or own pops up on Possessionista.com, it pretty much makes my week.
Like last week, when a pair of Sam Edelman booties I'm totally obsessed with showed up on Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale. Pinned these weeks ago. Already in my closet, thank you very much.
The necklace I wore to read at the Voices of the Year keynote? Showed up on her site.

Because that necklace? Kinda went viral. First on Emily Maynard as she appeared to plead not guilty to the cheating rumors on Good Morning America...

Some of you are definitely reading this and thinking she's crazy, is it really that big a deal?
And for most of the world, nope...it's not.
But for this fashion-loving blogger and wannabe trendsetter?
Total fashion karma...
