First official big girl trip for the new company.  What to wear, what to wear?  Hmm.. well, I need to represent the corporate fashion world which hails from NYC so the obvious choice? Black.

Actually thus far the city that never sleeps has been dressed pretty brightly - but if I am going to make my “I’m a big deal in this business” first impression, then I need to dress the part.

So above are a few things I have thrown together- luckily being the big deal that I am, a few pieces came gratis care of my new j-o-b.  It’s hard being this awesome.

This weekend I finally made it to the Schiaparelli / Prada exhibit : Impossible Conversations.  After one failed attempt, ahem, the night of the Met Gala, I was able to view these ladies work in all its glory.

The thing that I love about Prada and Schiaparelli is that they work outside the box.  Deconstruction breeds these beautiful works of art.  What I really enjoyed was that Miuccia does not think of herself as an artist or fashion as art - such an interesting perspective.  I also loved discovering that she went into fashion as a way of rebelling, my kind of lady.

Schiaparelli is a designer that I have admired since I was in college.  Her ability to envision these amazing theatrical creations is astounding.  Whenever people have told me I was “creative” I always thought to myself, “If you only knew what creative was.”

If you haven’t been, definitely make time to go

Today was a magical day.  I attended my very first New York City sample sale…. and let’s just say in the fight of Sarah v. Sample Sale… Sample Sale won. Big time.
However, there is an upside.  I did stock up on some pretty great things.  I scored an amazing cashmere scarf (originally $350) for just $45.  Also, the best daughter in the world managed to grab a teal silk shantung blouse with hand beading for her madre for Madre’s Day (that’s right, buying her love) for just a bit more.
I guess I’ll just have to put off buying a few other things like groceries for a while.

Panic.

I just bought my first pair of rain boots… RAIN - BOOTS.  I have to walk to work in the rain. This is one of those moments when I think, “What have I gotten myself into?”.
