Finding the Yellow Lining
You know when you have those days where you just feel "off" but can't pinpoint why? Well that was yesterday for me. I didn't get a lot of sleep the night before, my clients and I were not seeing eye to eye, and frankly the one thing getting me through the day was knowing I had wine and cheese night with friends later in the evening. However, as I was leaving from work, I received a picture text from a friend that immediately changed my whole day. To provide you with a brief background on this message, I went to see the show Book of Mormon with friends on Sunday night. After the show we stopped at Shake Shack and I saw this AWESOME yellow jacket on a random girl in line. Everyone was telling me I should take a picture, but until Empire Stilettos has a little more street cred, I didn't want to scare the poor girl. Of course I immediately regretted the decision and even google image searched the coat later that night. But lucky for me, I have a really nice friend who coincidentally saw the same coat (and potentially the same girl) on his commute to work and he snapped a picture of it for me! When I saw the picture come through my day was immediately brightened. I don't know if it was the vibrant yellow of the coat or once again appreciating how lucky I am to have such great people in my life. Either way, my day was turned around. The good news is, I can now share with you what the coat looks like. It is definitely a heavier fall/winter jacket, but in the fashion world we are always thinking ahead 2 seasons right? Enjoy!
