I was never the type of girl who liked to travel in crowds. I like to make an entrance, make a statement. Most importantly, I like to work on my own.
I went out to work on Thursday needing money for my upcoming trip to the Canary Islands. I was planning on shopping the next day and needed my paycheck. I got my mind ready to strategize, to focus, and to land my sales pitch effortlessly.

I met my client right outside her building onWall Street. She was dressed like a million dollars, looking like a bottle of fine wine. I followed her as she stepped into some stores to do some shopping during her lunch hour. We went to try on some shoes. She had six pairs which she liked and I encouraged her to try them on as I sat on the bench next to her waiting for the sales woman to see if they had a pair of sandals in my size.

The longer I sat next to her the more I encouraged her to try a variety of sexy heels. The saleswoman breathlessly walked back and forth to get the right shoes and the right fit, knowing that this woman was here to spend some money. She narrowed it down to three pairs and began walking the length of the store to see which one fit. All eyes were on her as each foot delicately hit the ground with her perfectly manicured foot inside.

My cell phone rang just then and I stepped outside to take the call. I had to turn the corner fast as I couldn’t hear with all the noise outside and found a nice quiet little alley. I opened my jacket and pulled out my latest “purchase”. The well dressed woman’s purse was inside with credit cards, $500 in cash, three gift cards and ID. I ran to the piers and took a water taxi into Brooklyn. My colleague was waiting for, me money in hand, to purchase my new found goods. I removed the $500 dollars in cash and gave him the rest. I had quite the assortment and it fetched me just enough to enjoy my weekend on the Canary Islands.

My feet were hurting and I had been exhausted from working long hours all week. A long weekend was just what I need and I was looking forward to laying on the beach with a drink in hand.

One of the great ways that WordPress has inspired me is by giving me the chance to showcase all the great fashion photography that is part of the process of selling my fashion designs. The most fun for me is creating a whole different look for myself based on the style I am selling.
Its been great to be so inspired and even better to get to express myself on so many different venues with so many different sides of myself.

This is a snapshot of my webstore, www.OrReet.etsy.com.  You can see there are lots of different looks going on here.
The first picture in the top row was the most fun I had. I went for the lazy – housewife – who – was – out – clubbing – all – night  look. I wore  a wig and blue and red lipstick and had some great photography done. The full range of pictures can be found here.
Then I did the next listing going for an 80s roller derby look. I put on some blue lipstick, roller skates,  gave myself an 80s hairstyle  and had a blast! The full listing is here.
One of other favorites is found in the second row where I went for a zombie theme for the hooded halter dress. I felt like queen of the night in that dress!

But I think my ultimate favorite is in the third row (second picture), where I went for a punk military look. You can see I am wearing a pink wig and am barely recognizable as my typical curly haired funky chick. I called them my grenade launcher pants and it just brought out that side of me! Check out the rest of the crazy shoot here. 

How has WordPress inspired you?

I had my birthday this past weekend and left the house with a smile, ready to start my day. I took a nice stroll through Brooklyn and stumbled upon a cute vintage store. I found these really cool wooden bracelets that looked great with my outfit. I couldn’t resist the great price and had to have them! Then I went to PetSmart to look at kittens. I thought about adopting one and even played with the kittens! They were soooo cute.

After walking around Brooklyn and playing with the cats, I got hungry. The sun was going down so I decided to grab a slice of NY pizza and bring some home. I stopped at “Not Rays Pizza” on the way home and walked back with the smell of pizza calling out to me. I couldn’t wait to sit down, kick off my shoes, and eat my slice.
