Happy Sunday Gang,

Today was a day that I had waited for but did not think it was going to happen for a while yet.
Still, a chilly Sunday here in the DMV so Mike and I decided to head to Tysons Galleria to check out the new Isabella’s Eatery – Chef Mike Isabella’s grand project.  Very upscale food court.  We are were looking at some new spring cosmetics skincare lines, new workout gear maybe and popping into CHANEL!  Whaaaaat!  A very sweet sales associate and I had been talking for months and I had given her an idea of a bag (I don’t have one in my collection – well didn’t) I wanted something classic but with an edge – not the same black bag everyone else has you know what I mean….. I’m not one who wants exactly what everyone else has. I sent her this picture 6 mths ago as an idea (RUNWAY PEOPLE) So she knew I wanted something classic but edgy.  Like a said I was not to be rushed in this purchase nor was I gonna rush, Mike……… Wink Wink!

I have some of these jeans below and whats great high-end or low they last and look and feel so good.  I adore pairing my jeans, t-shirts or casual top with high-end accessories.  That is really my everyday style ( well except for my yoga pant days…… which I’m trying to do only on days I workout – Ha Ha who’s with me?

I mean I have some “fancy dresses” but let’s be honest that is not my life and I’m glad.  I need to be comfy and try and look good doing it.  I may even get my nails done this week.  If you’ve been following along you know I have taken this year to really “edit” my closet and “things” I have quality over quantity.  I’m getting there still a work in progress and this week I’ll be tackling my office – AGAIN.  As far as CHANEL………………… darlings you will have to check back for the Unboxing- I’ve been doing little videos for myself and the restaurants so I think I’ll make one.  So it will be up this week.  If you go to Chanel in Tysons Corner, VA ask for Michelle Kennedy she is the best!  Her manager Brianna was lovely as well.  Not an everyday thing for me a very special piece.  I’m happy, grateful and will cherish it forever!Chanel, chanel boy bag, blankslate, urablankslate, dmv, blogger babes, YOUTUBE, loriannmd, lori tauraso, frederick md, designer, classic, runway, karl laugerfeld, BlankSlateBlog, Instagram, Youtube, Unboxing

Again, happy Sunday everyone!  I know it was a surprisingly happy one for me and I wish the same for all of you as always.

Still working on the DIY home cleaners and the video will be up soon.
