Some variation of this outfit has pretty much become my weekend uniform. And I am really embracing casual now that Monday-Friday I am required to step it up a notch…

That’s right people, this chick got a J.O.B!  Last week was my first as Interactive Marketing Manager for Pour La Victoire, and I couldn’t be more excited about the position. If you aren’t familiar, Pour La Victoire is an amazing shoe and handbag brand with a classic-but-edgy vibe. It is such a great feeling to be jumping into a new project, in a new city, and working on something I’m super passionate about!

Come along for the ride and follow PLV on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest? It’ll be fun!

    Aw exciting!! I’m kind of jealous right now, seeing how I’m stuck in my cubicle at my blah job. At least I can live vicariously through your future posts ;)

    Side note: sweet beenie, it’s making me kinda bummed the cool weather is leaving us. But then on the flip side the summer dresses can be busted out.

    I love your blog!! I have a question, I am planning to visit San Francisco in a couple of weeks. How it would be the weather?? I don´t know if I shoud take a coat or just a jacket. On the other hand, can you recommend me any special store for shopping?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Laura Reply:

    Oh, fun!! I haven’t been there for a few months, but it is always a good idea to plan for cold/wind — I’d bring a jacket and some sweaters, a scarf, etc. to layer.

    Some of my favorite stores are LF, Azalea and Mira Mira. xo
