Men's Buyer

So, I recently took on some new responsibility at work. i have become the primary men's buyer for Mode Boutique. As such, I travel twice a year to Las Vegas and purchase the product for the following season. This past week has been my first time. It was a learning experience to say the least. I am grateful for Beccy and her patience with me. I get into the zone and just run from booth to booth.
I saw some beautiful pieces and had the chance to procure a couple lines I plan to one day incorporate into my own store. Rag & Bone was one of the collections that stood out the most to me. Along with such others as Fillippa K and B.Son. I cannot wait for the coming fall. I spent a bit more than i had initially planned on, but I did preorder some incredible stuff. I guess I will have to work hard this summer to fnd a way to pay for it all.
I had a really good time away from school. It was nice to have a break from my studies and play with Melissa and the Bingham Twins. all in all, it was a great trip.

New Music

So over the last few weeks, I have been purging my music collection. i sold all my used cds back to graywhale and have been ordering obscure albums to replenish my supply. One album in particular has stood out and simply amazed me. I have been listening to SamAmidon's all is well album nonstop. you may have noticed that the song on my blog is one of his earlier pieces, sons of levi. I am simply enveloped by the old folk songs reinterpreted. I need rest right now and i think i am finding peace in these old songs. i also have been listening to solitary man.

Hot Pot Advnture

Last night I went with some friends to the hot pots down in diamond fork canyon. It was quite and adventure; certainly more exciting than the usual night at the library. We made hobo dinners and then hiked up to the springs where we cooked them on the side of the pools. I am exhausted today and still smell of smoke and sulfur, but it was a fun time. And I think one of the creepers in the corner was naked, so that adds to the whole experience...

Black Friday Sale

So we are having a sale at Mode the day after thanksgiving modeled after a painting by the Russian artist Kazimir Malevich. I had heard of him but not seen his works until today. The piece we are using to promote the sale is The Black Square. I really like it, so I thought i would post it here for any who are interested.

Again its been a while...

I am not sure why I continue to post on this blog. I do not share it with others, so I feel no need to keep anyone current or to reveal anything about myself. I think I find it therapeutic to write down my feelings for the day.

I recently discovered a new favorite publication I cannot live without. I borrowed a copy of this months Dwell magazine and am simply loving it. I have always wanted to find a small avant-garde residence and this magazine has opened my eyes to how many people share my passion. There are some really cool homes; especially small reinterpretations of the shed. fun.

i also am feeling this intense desire to get outdoors and take in fall. I want to camp out and hunt. I'm not really a hunter but I have this yearning to ensconce myself in flannel and take to the woods. Strange I know but I am feeling trapped by school and want to relax.

I am falling asleep at the computer, so I think I will finish this post later.
