Sample Sale Highlights: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga

Well, I am finally off to Tucson after being in Sedona, Arizona for almost 3 months. It will be strange to go back to city life after being immersed in dark, starry nights. I can say, however, that I'm looking forward to seeing my roommate, Torrie, and having the ability to get a meal after 9:00pm (for those of you who don't know, the town of Sedona is completely shut down after 9:00pm unless you want to visit the gap toothed creeps at the gas station). One thing I do want to take from Sedona is the fact that nature and serenity still exist. There is so much stimulus in a city that it's hard to remember that someone actually laid out the concrete and distorted the view of the night sky with lights and noise. I also cannot and will not forget the experiences I gained in Sedona this summer. The highlight has definitely been my internship with Sedona Monthly. Through my internship I was able to get a true taste of journalism, and let me tell palette is forever changed. My favorite day was when I was able to attend the photoshoot for the October issue's cover. Although we blew a few fuses and the bracelet chosen for the model was about five sizes too big and secretly secured with duct tape, in my eyes it was still a very awe-inspiring, glamorous experience. Between Erika, Joe, and Debbie I've learned I want to do it all. Erika makes me want to buy an old fashion typewriter and write until I'm either buried in balls of crumpled thoughts or have carpal tunnel syndrome from writing into the wee hours of the night. Joe makes me want to expand my vocabulary to include words like "haughty," so when I'm creatively directing during a shoot I can describe exactly what I want from my models. I think I also need to practice saying "chin up! chin up!" a few times. Debbie makes me want to change my exercise regimen from morning jogs to hauling around portable lights and tripods, just so I can get the perfect shot. It's bittersweet, but I know I will continue to work with Sedona Monthly for a very long time. Now I have about a 4 hour drive ahead of me, but tomorrow I'm getting my hair done and maybe I will bid Sedona adieu with a little bit of retail therapy. Here are some great upcoming/ongoing sales that I'll definitely be checking out:
