I have been a total team player so far with life this year and all the curve balls that it has rapidly thrown my way, but for some reason this month is more than I can handle. Maybe it's because I'm moving back to Vegas, I have another shoot that I have to prepare for, an audit for my day job, a car that really, really needs new brakes, a teeth filling that I am fearing scheduled for next week, or the fact that I have not packed my 2 bedroom apartment except for some DVD's and books and we need to be out of here by the 27th. YOU take a pick. Any one of them will do on helping me reach my breaking point. Even the pinnacle night of Fashion is having a hard time pulling me out of my blue cloud of doom. =( But for all you fashion elites out there that ARE in great spirits come out and play at FNO. It's not too late! Check out the crazy hectic schedule for SF's Fashion Night Out right here! Where will you be on the most fashionable night of the year? And more important...ummmm what are you wearing? I would love to see! Comment me in the comment sections! I'll show you mine, if you show me yours!
