I have this weird affinity for holiday socks. I love them. I have an entire drawer of them: Christmas socks, Halloween Socks, Valentines Day, St. Patricks Day, but I could never find Thanksgiving socks. After years of searching and contemplating designing my own line of Turkey Day Sockwear (pretty sure that's not a word, but just go with it) - I found them at SJ's Village Boutique in Pittsford. Hallelujah!
My life is now complete.
SJ's has a great selection of "fun" socks - so if you're like me and enjoy a little party going on underneath your on-trend footwear, head on over to SJ's and check them out.
Happy sock shopping!
Smile, tomorrow is Friday, so rock out with your sock out.
Okay was pretty bad... I'll leave you all in peace.
I wanted to let you know that I started a new series on my personal lifestyle blog The Flower City Fashionista called "Made In America Mondays." Each week I will feature a new brand/product line that is made in the USA. I am so excited to be starting a new business as an American Brand Ambassador and can not wait to invite you all to my first trunk show. This is no house party, it's a movement! Join me in getting more American-made products on the shelves of local boutiques and in the hands of consumers.
Check out part one of the series and find out more here.

The highly fashionable crowd gathered at Max at High Falls last night for the Dado Fall 2012 Fashion Show. While I found myself drooling over every single look that went down the runway, I was also coveting many of the looks in the audience as well. Bracelets were stacked, designer bags were flashing, Loubs were kicking, and hair and makeup was on point. DJ FLEX had the beats bumping, the models were styled beautifully, and just when I thought I had seen it all, I got to experience Svet, the hip hop violinist, at intermission. It was a beautiful night for a wonderful cause. When all was said and done, the evening had raised more that $40,000 for the Wilmot Cancer Center and Rochester proved just how fashion-forward she can be. Take that NYC - we clean up pretty good too! ;)
