Sorry for the lack of substantial posts as of late. I know the editorial/runway posts get sort of monotonous after awhile-- but there was good reason why I was absent! I was visiting my (very pregnant) sister up in central California for the past week. I'm kicking myself that I didn't take more pictures, but I can't really do anything about it now. Rest assured, fun was had by all.
Her town has a Forever 21 DEPARTMENT STORE. It. Was. Amazing. Upon telling my facebook friends list this news via my status, a couple different people informed me that they also had abnormally large size Forever 21's by them. I never knew such things existed! I'm used to my average size garden variety Forever 21's. I could hardly contain myself, I was like a kid in a candy store; excited and overwhelmed all at the same time. I had no idea where to start, what section to go to first... and about an hour later I walked out with a reasonable-sized bags filled with goodies. I may have to do a haul post about it in the near future.

Other than that, I went to a couple doctors appointments with my sister... getting to hear my little niece's heartbeat. I can't believe she's going to be here in a matter of weeks, if not days ;). I had so much fun helping my sister get her clothes all hung and her closet put together; all those cute little miniature clothes! It almost makes me want my own. almost.
I'm bummed I had to come home... but the next the next time I see her she'll have a wee little peanut! I can't wait!

  1. Forever 21, here in Italy - well, al least in my city - we don't have it! what a pity, I would be very happy to have a look (mmm, it sounds more like I would be able to buy everything!).. I've been in that shop just once, during a vacation in New York city, hope to be in the US very soon!

  3. Emily! I deleted my facebook, so I did not see any of your status posts about forever 21 or what ones people told you about. So you might have already heard this, but there is a HUGE forever 21 in riverside! off central!

  5. I felt like it was consuming me! I would check it all day long for notifications and it would distract me from homework. I told myself just not to use it anymore, but I would feel weird if people could go look at pictures of me and me not be there sort of haha. Actuuuually though, I do still have it, but I only have one friend, haha. I only kept my boyfriend, because he is in Europe currently and it is where he posts all his pictures from there, and I do not want to miss out on those. To be honest though, you post the funniest things and I almost couldn't part with being your friend on their because they make me laugh all the time and I miss that! Oh gosh haha, I just thought of a facebook story to tell you too, but I've already written a whole paragraph on your blog about facebook, wow.

    On the forever 21 subject! The one in riverside has so much stuff! Last time I went it was two massive stories and they were working on a third! I dont know if that means more stuff, or just to spread out. It's not a brand new store, but pretty new. It used to be a gottchalks. I also heard that there is a new one in hemet that is pretty massive, but I have not been there myself.

  6. yes! I totally get what you mean about facebook consuming you. I get the same way. I annoy myself because I'm on it so much. I don't blame you for getting rid of it. I'm just scared that if I ever got rid of mine, I wouldn't have a place to put my ridiculous thoughts and commentary... haha.
    Tell me the facebook story! :)

    That Forever 21 sounds AMAZING! The one I went to was an old Gottchalks, too!

  7. hahahah, I promise you that your ridiculous thoughts and commentary were the only reasons I didn't want to delete it. So the facebook story, it is probably not even that great, but i was at Jason Ruiz's apartment one day, because my best friend Nicole and him are a couple and live together. They were talking about something on facebook that was funny and I remembered your story about the concert in your work parking lot. So I go along saying "Are you friends with Emily Fontaine on facebook?" Jason - (I call him Panda) "No, but I can be."...I am totally not surprised he said that because he thinks he is funny. He is funny though, Ill give him that. I proceed to go to your facebook and read that post of yours and other ones that are funny. Seriously next thing I know, I saw that he was posting on SO MANY of your posts. So, I texted Nicole when I noticed and said "Its funny how I ask Panda if he is friends with Emily, and now he is commenting on all of her posts immediately after this happened" She didnt even reply to my text, I think she got a little jealous!

    I don't think I ever went to a gottchalks, but Im not going to act like I wish I did, because I love that forever 21 is taking over all the locations.

    It just dawned on me, I know Ive told Nicole that your blog is one of my favorites. I dont think she knows it, but I hope she doesnt see this!

  8. I have just found your blog, and I have to say that I love it. I have a few huge F21 near me so I love all the cheap trendy pieces I have access to! I am a new follower!
