Career Opportunities

Cripes, what a busy week it's been! I started my new job at Bike & Build and was immediately thrown into the chaos tornado that is working at small non-profit. Everybody in the office (all 3 of them) are great and the environment is super laid back. Despite only working part-time, it feels as though my entire week left little time for anything other than working and commuting. I haven't even started my college courses yet! I now have the utmost respect for those bloggers who maintain full work and/or school schedules.

Luckily, my office is the type of place where they don't care what I wear or if my tattoos show. As I mentioned, there's only 3 other people there, and most of them are traveling during the summer. On top of that, we have no actual visitors coming into the office, so I can dress as casual as I'd like. Oddly enough, I actually feel a bit weird getting "dressed up" to go into such a casual environment where everyone else is wearing t-shirts and jeans. So far I've mustered up the courage to wear heels and a skirt, but not both at once. Maybe next week, as everyone is traveling the entire week, so I'll be the only one there.

This fantastic skirt was a spontaneous purchase while Ray was shopping for some nice clothes to wear to the Rapha framebuilder's party we went to last week at their popup store in NYC. We went into H&M looking for nice dress shirts, he left empty handed, and somehow I come out with bags of clothes. I think it's a repressed shopping. I held it in for months, due to a lack of funds, and now it's manifesting itself in unhealthy ways. But seriously, this skirt is incredible. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it. Ray was hesitant, probably because on the rack it looked as if there was serious potential to look like an oversize Easter egg. But I knew the was potential. And look, I was right!

  3. Hi,

    You dress yourself so amazingly, really biker chic. I love your sense of style. I also really love your writing voice, it’s so raw and real. I’m a journalist, and fashion director of Street Savvy magazine, so when I come across good writing I’m like ‘finally! A blog that isn’t just pretty pictures!!’

    I love your blog. We should collaborate some time.
