I am so shopping this

Does this come with an option to customize and print my blog URL on the back?

And no, of course I won’t really be wearing this. Just to make you laugh.

Ah, I’ve been wandering fashion blogs too much. For example the delightful Capitol Hill Style (also on twitter), who I will turn to for advice in the coming summer when I’ll be in DC.

The Modcloth site might just have some of the most beautiful vintage dresses around. Like these two here. I’m in love.

I’ve also found Stylecaster, which is sort of a personalized shopping assistant – you can create an account and set your preferences, and they give you shopping and style tips that are adjusted for the local weather! I’m scared to register… haha.

But while I was finding these I was actually doing something important: Looking for fall wardrobe. Fall wardrobe that would be reporting-appropriate and chic. I already found the perfect pair of paints on my Labor Day shopping spree.

Wandering into H&M in itself made me feel like home. I went there after the delight of realizing shopping in America makes me one to two sizes smaller than I really am (sizes are measured larger here so as not to scare off customers who would be an XXL in Germany – they’re just an L here. Consequently, a small is rather large on me.)

I’m still looking for the perfect blazer, and a candidate for the perfect shoes is this one (the 5 cm heel is hidden! they’re a miracle of optical illusion). If you have any fashion tips, let me know! Otherwise, I’ve been doing pretty good so far. My bank account, not so much. But that’s a different story. At least I’ll be a pretty well dressed reporter next quarter.
