The Sunday Six: February 3rd, 2008

Happy Super Bowl Sunday -- that is, if you watch football or the commercials or the half-time show! Perhaps I'll catch a commercial or two, but personally the real highlight of this week is New York Fashion Week! So happy Fashion Week, my lovelies -- who needs commercials when you have real-time blogging at New York Fashion Week from the editors of New York Times Style Magazine?
  1. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for Miss Couturable as best teen weblog in the Eighth Annual Weblog Awards! Voting has closed -- results are anticipated in March. I'm crossing my fingers.
  2. Pink Rock Candy, Style Bubble, and The Daily Obsession are in New York for Fashion Week! Check out their blogs for the going-ons around Bryant Park -- are you malachite green with envy yet? I know I am.
  3. Aspartame can cause memory loss? Perhaps it's time to renounce Diet Cokes. Luckily, sugar-free Rockstars use sucralose -- so I still have my late-night, should-have-started-this-project-earlier drink options open.

  4. Thanks to Sass & Bide Fall 2008 Ready-to-Wear, I really want a pair of black over-the-knee ribbed socks with fishnet stockings -- as well as lots of bright hairpieces, metallic sparkle embellishments upon black minidresses/skirts/tops, ruffled shoulders, sleek black satin skinny pants, and pins. Oh my, big sequined round pins in gold, silver, and rainbow. It's one of few accessories that I can actually DIY. This fall, I want to sparkle.
  5. Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port are working in fashion PR under Madhouse Revolution, according to New York Magazine. I sort of like Whitney, but I've never finished an episode of The Hills in the first place. Lauren's going from interning for Teen Vogue to designing her own line to working in fashion PR -- what direction in fashion is she headed in, anyways? Hopefully, not magazine editor -- that makes the two of us and millions of others vying for the same job.
  6. I've officially begun my college search, and in April I'm going to the east coast for college visits. Are there any college visit tips that you'd be interested in sharing? Is driving from college to college along the east coast my best option (flying around everyday would be a hassle)?
Eat lots of seven-layer bean dip and buffalo wings if you're watching the Super Bowl today. I think I'll multitask -- Super Bowl and Fashion Week at the same time.
