Yay, we’ve successfully completed the first month of the Correspondence Club!  When I dreamed up this idea, I was so worried that no one would want to participate and that I would be writing letters to myself, but instead, the eight lovely ladies I mentioned above signed up!  As little thank you for joining the club, I sent each of the participants a note and set of heart-shaped stickers :)  Then the real letter-writing began in earnest and it is so exciting to see how creative everyone has been with their letters!

Carrie, of Petal by Petal sweetly shared her experience with me- here’s what she said:

“I was so excited when a red envelope decorated with zebra-print tape landed in my mailbox! Camille’s creativity showed in the letter, the pretty necklace, and the collage wrapping. What I like best about Correspondence Club is that sitting down to write a letter vs. dashing off an e-mail means I need to slow down — something I need to do more often.”

I agree 100% Carrie!  Taking the time to slow down and write a letter demonstrates a thoughtfulness that I certainly appreciate, especially when I’m on the receiving end of the letter :)  For me personally, on the day I received my letter from Natasha I was having a not-so-great day, but coming from work and finding the sweet letter and pretty notebook that Natasha sent absolutely brightened my day!  A letter is a little thing, but it can certainly make a big difference :)  I’m so excited and ready for the March round of letters!

Do you want to join the Correspondence Club for March?  You’ve still got time!  If you would like to participate in March, please send me your information by the end of the day today (February 29th at 12:00am EST).

Cobalt Blue Night

Cobalt Blue Night 2

Forever 21* Cardigan, StyleMint* Tee, Thrifted* Skirt, Shabby Apple* Necklace,
Lulu’s* Purse, Enzo Angiolini* Boots (all photos taken by Alex)

I wore this outfit to work a couple of weeks ago, then met up with for dinner later that night with Alex.  I love the color of this pencil skirt that I picked up in a little vintage shop here in the East Village.  For my first time wearing it, I decided to pair it with my first StyleMint purchase, the striped Broadway tee in blue.  And if I wasn’t wearing enough blue already, I had to add this pretty necklace from Shabby Apple that I won in a giveaway on Laura‘s blog.  Blue is my favorite color and I guess I just couldn’t get enough of cobalt blue in this outfit :)  Also, how cool is the detail on the back of Alex’s coat?

Did you guys have a good weekend?  I just spent most of my time relaxing and taking care of a few things around the house.  I also just finished up the Hunger Games trilogy and I cannot wait for the movie to come out!  It’s going to be so entertaining!  Since I don’t have a TV, I didn’t watch the Oscars, but I did follow along with the fug girls as they live-blogged the event- I always find their commentary so funny!

Tell me: Did you watch the Oscars? Who was your best-dressed pick of the night?  Also, what do we think of the mini-layout change I made?
