Happy New Year, everyone! 2012 has been pretty crazy so far. I packed up all of my belongings in a giant metal cube this afternoon. Tomorrow morning it'll be shipped to Seattle and I'll follow it one week later. I'm so emotionally torn about this, feeling excited one minute and incredibly sad the next. Saying goodbye to my close friends has been gut-wrenching, a social funeral. I'm considering some sort of mass kidnapping. Stealing ten or eleven people can't be that hard, right?
Anyway, I have some pretty great news to share! On Friday I did an interview with BreakThru Radio, an online radio station based in New York. DJ Marie and I chatted about fashion trends, my new job, how I got started in the industry and my favorite Twin Cities designers — it's about 20 additional minutes of style-related babbling (the babbling happened on my end — DJ Marie is as concise and eloquent as they come). You can listen to the interview here. Our conversation is interspersed with some awesome tunes that I highly recommend.
Secondly, I found out today that Art of Wore has recieved the incredibly gracious title of Best Blog from l'etoile magazine! I could not be happier about this. L'etoile is curated by some of the smartest, chicest girls in Minneapolis — getting their stamp of approval is the ultimate high-five. I am so honored and happy about this award. Thanks, l'etoile!
