i know kung fu*

August 28th, 2012

So, here’s the deal.  In all the insanity of this past year, Chad and I are so long overdue for a vacation that it’s a little pathetic!  Between buying our house, putting in the pool (so close!) and jetting back and forth from New York, it’s been almost a year since we last had a weekend of pure sightseeing or breach-going! 

So, obviously, I jumped on the chance to participate in Banana Republic (the makers of this AMAZING leather dress) and Virgin America’s Upgrade Your Style program!  Click over to their Facebook page for the chance to win two round-trip tickets and a Banana Republic shopping spree!  And even if you don’t win, you can grab an awesome discount on flights and clothes!

Now the tough part: where to go?!  I put together a Pinterest Board of my top choices, but what do you guys think?  Top of my list is Portland, Oregon, because one of my best girlfriends moved there and I still haven’t visited!  But I’m also DYING to go to Las Vegas — I’ve never been and it sounds like such a blast!  Throw in Los Angeles, Los Cabos, and good old NYC, and I can’t seem to make up my mind!

* Sorry, guys.  It’s impossible for me to do an outfit post of me in all leather without referencing The Matrix at least once.  See?  There, I got it out of my system.

    I vote for Portland and spend a few nights in Cannon Beach. It is gorgeous there and there is a ton to do and fun restaurants!

    I seriously love leather for this fall and I am going to seriously try to hold myself back from purchasing this dress πŸ˜‰ …for now! x

    LOVE this dress! I am a bit obsessed with leather for fall, so this is right up my alley. You made it very office appropriate, too.

    I personally would choose Las Vegas (always wanted to go) or Cabos (relaxing beaches!) but it just depends on what you want the purpose of your trip to be. Either way, enjoy!

    PORTLAND!  We can go together and visit Kristen, Kate, and Lola!!!!!!!!  Oh, and Kate’s dog Lulu! 

    Also.  I LOVE THIS DRESS.  I have to send you a photo of this absolutely sick Alexander McQueen forest green leather frock.  je l’adore.  Speaking of les francais…add Paris to the mix.  If I buy this dress we can be TWINS at FNO…sound good?

    First of all, that’s an amazing dress!

    Second of all, come to Portland! It’s beautiful here πŸ™‚ But you should try to beat the rain – so that means coming before like, mid-October. And if you do visit – we should grab coffee!

    Keep us all posted!

    I’ve been contemplating buying that dress for a little while now, but I’ll be ordering today. Thanks for the nudge πŸ™‚ It looks fab on you! xx Nina

    Monica — Ah!  It sold out so fast online!  It should still be in stores — I saw it in a bunch of Texas stores this past weekend!  Let me know if you want me to check with the brand on a size!

    It’s good-looking here But you should attempt to hit the rainfall – so that earnings coming before like, mid-October. And if you do stay – we should clutch chocolate!
