Fashionista Fantasy

A new post by Jackie - our newest addition to Ooh La La Mama! Say hello everyone!

I've started watching The Hills spin-off show The City with Whitney Port. It's her new begining in New York city as a PR assistant for Diane Von Furstenburg. I'm loving it. It reminds me of Sex in the City and the Devil Wears Prada with drama from the Hills. Ah to be rich, thin, and running around New York city...

I'm in my late twenties and while I've had fun, I never fulfilled my fantasy of being ultra glamorous, hip, and put together while taking on new big adventures. Of course there's still plenty of time to do this, but it's going to be a little while with the new baby. (It's tough wearing 4 inch heels and lugging a baby in a car seat.) 

I did have a job that made me feel EXACTLY like the girl in Devil Wears Prada, but without all of the glamour. Although I did meet some cool people and celebrities, it was more a jeans and flip flops culture than a Chanel boots and Prada bag kind of place. 

But like all little girls - I of course love fashion and even dreamed of working in PR when I first started college.  But pregnancy of course has made it tougher to fit into my size 4 skinny jeans that made my butt look totally fantastic.  Aahhh, memories...

But just because I am a mom does not mean that I am giving up! No!  I am a new mom and it's a new year.  I'm gonna be hot! I'm just gonna work on my body and then get myself back into shape!  And, I have promised myself that by the time I am 30 I'm going to be outrageous and buy myself a pair of black peep toe Christian Louboutins with the famous red sole - to go with my new, smokin-hot bod!  Won't my hubby go nuts? (Not for the shoe purchase, silly! He'll go crazy over the new me!)

For now, I will stick to enjoying The City and The Devil Wears Prada (which is currently playing on F/X as I type). What's your fantasy?

I love the City! I have always liked whitney, she did always seem more mature then most of the other gals.

Go for it, girl!

I, myself, a new mom and being a SAHM currently, my Pjs tends to be my uniform. Gotta change that though going back to size 0/2 is only a dream.

Fantasy? To be a SAHM but the kids are at school :) Do some volunteering, some committee work, spend more time cooking and decorating the house!

But those shoes are HOT!

The only fantasy I have is to stop wearing my sneaky Gap pregnancy jeans and get back into my Juicy Couture jeans! My hubby said he'd buy me another pair once I can fit into those. I just need to get motivated. I LOVE those shoes, but unfortunately due to the ton of weight I put on with my Little Monkey I don't think my knees or feet would thank me with those super high heels.

All I have to say is how the heck do woman walk in those shoes! lol I would kill myself trying!

Oh how I would love to be a bit more glam. Unfortunately as a sham the funds just aren't there to buy all the fabulous stuff I I'll just keep dreaming about winning a large sum of money and then when I do I'll know exactly how I want to spend it.

I have to steal Emily's fantasy...i'd love to send the little one to school & still be home! Kuddos to you for your goals, you'll be a HOT MAMA in no time with that attitude;).
