Cupcakes & Cashmere Maroon Dress & a Leather Jacket

WIW, facing forward

I know what it's like to see the impossible as a blogger. Especially a blogger with a full-time career, a non-profit committee chair and volunteer. I cannot imagine blogger mommys lives when mine is always packed to the brim. Life gets in the way, post move to the back burner for family matters and scheduling shoots is pushed to 5 minutes before running out the door to catch the morning bus. It's work you need to push for. 

Which is why this post is special today. The dress I'm wearing is by a blogger I've followed for years and years: Cupcakes and Cashmere. She's one of the reasons I started my Monthly Favorites Series, which I plan to bring back but revamped to be more specific. 

Even though I bought this dress at Nordstrom Rack, on sale, I have been following her line for quite awhile. The Nordstrom in downtown Seattle carries it and I often pick up her pieces to try on but I haven't fallen in love with an item like this one before. I've worn it twice in a matter of weeks and each time differently.  I love the versatility it holds. 

It's really important for me, as a blogger, to see others strive and succeed in what they want. I'm sure Emily didn't expect to get offered a clothing line or a book contract (never-the-less two) when she was starting out. No, she started her blog to simply document the things she loved. Ten years later, she's taking the world by storm. I don't know Emily personally but I know I will always support her because I've gotten to see first hand how far she's come and know how much work she's put in. 

Unfortunately the dress I'm wearing is completely sold out. When this happens I always advise to check out ebay. However, I'll put some similar dresses below, along with a link to Emily's full clothing line.
