// LATELY 11.17.14

// Location: DC

It's been another 7 day work week. I'm a little on the exhausted side. But as always, New York doesn't care. Hello Monday morning!

On my train ride to DC Thursday [for a work trunk-show], I finally put down "The 4-Hour Work Week" by Timothy Ferriss. A highly recommended book. I've been saving pages, circling key points, and scribbling notes throughout the read and I wanted to share one of my favourites. Tim says, "Having an unusually large goal is an adrenaline infusion that provides the endurance to overcome the inevitable trails and tribulations that go along with any goal". It's the truth. Setting goals extremely high does force you to be brave, ask for what you want, and be true to your goal. 

I picked up the latest issue of Time Magazine with Taylor Swift's face on it on my way back to New York. "The Power of Taylor Swift" at 25 years old? I mean that's insane. The article talks about her ability to stand her ground at such a young age. She knew what she wanted, and for that 10 years later she was rewarded. It's inspiring. It's also inspiring to know that her success was not overnight [patience and I aren't the best of friends].

My Sunday morning was spent with Judy Kim at Maman. We walked over to her friend's store for a little inspiration. Michele Varian's style is just textile heaven am I right?

Alright, time to get going x -C
