It was at that moment that I realized…

that I am utterly boring. Wait, let me back up. During Boston Fashion Week, I met some cool characters, including Holly. Holly is a new blogger, has an understanding of styling and fashion that chillingly good, and is just generally adorable. So when she asked to me join her and her friends to do a fashion, art, and music showing at Great Scott, I was thrilled. So I left my little bubble in the Back Bay/South End (read-wealthy yuppies) and traveled to Allston. Anyway, Holly,Leigh, and everyone else was adorable and friendly. They shared their beer and no one discussed their 9-5 day job, their bills, or the errands they need to run over the weekend. It was fairly early on that I realized that I am so much closer to that lifestyle that I’ve disliked for so long. You know, business casual during the day, Saturday nights out that end before midnight, no new experiences. So I am taking suggestions for something ridiculous and out of character. Let’s keep it legal, though (unless you want to email me)!

The styling was, of course, fantastic. Uncle Pete’s provided the most amazing clothes from Rick Owens, Society for Rational Dress, and Sea. I nearly cried (I mean actual tears) when I saw a Rick Owens denim jacket with leather sleeves. Holly picked an amazing white cotton shirt from Rick Owens that I wore as a dress, with two pairs of textured tights from H&M and my own jewelry and heels from Nine West. Amanda from red bird vintage gave us all some amazing makeup, and Bill Paul from a salon whose name has escaped me Bradley & Diegal (Holly, remind me Thank you!) gave me an awesome bang trim.

Enough yakking. Ze photos.

    You are most certainly NOT boring, but there’s no place like Allston to shake up your world a little bit. :)

    Oh man, I was shaking my head in sympathy as I read that first paragraph. As I neared the end of it, I realized it was actually empathy I was feeling. As much as I like to think I’m young and cool, I suppose that I’ve come to a point where I’m in a life rut: job, errands, bills, and blogging really dominate my day-to-day. What happened to carefree adventures! I’m taking applications for a real bawdy blogger night out (actually, I’m just flat out nominating you!).

    These girls look like a blast! And the experience sounds really cool too. I mean, you’re wearing Rick Owens. I’m swooning! Hope you have a great weekend packed with adventures and great stories.

    Hair was Paul from Bradley & Diegel – he’s such a rockstar stylist! And you, miss, were amazing (thank you!) and far from boring! After a night like that I’m quite looking forward to a peaceful weekend in my own little Beacon Hill bubble.

    Boring is not an adjective I would use in the same sentence with you. Especially after your fashion week schedule (which makes me tired just thinking about it). I recognize Holly from the Improper Style Feature…..her feature ran before mine and those were some stylish heels to follow. I had no idea she was a blogger too!

    You looked faboosh as always!!

    Oh man, I have SOOOOo been feeling that same loathsome boring feeling lately. It’s the worst! I’ve been thinking of taken a weekend trip (to somewhere new o to somewhere I haven’t been in a long time) and taking loads of pictures and listening to amazing new music.
    PS – Love the way you styled the white dress. Uber cute. So un-boring.

    That dress is amazing on you. I know the boring feeling, like you need to shake things up!
