Weirdly, I have always associated the view of Paris that includes the Eiffel with what I want to think is uplifting and optimistic. Therefore, this Tumblr photo is the one I leave you with for 2012. Uplifting, optimism -> 2013.

I think that for those of us who follow the magazines, the year may seem to go by faster. For example, us fashion-magaziners are starting February already. And maybe that's why December always seems to come by too soon... But also, it's important for us to remember that when time seems to fly, it only means that we've been having fun. And looking back, hell yes, this year was a blast. In my personal life, but in fashion too! I mean, the whole designer switch-ups (Raf for Dior, Hedi for SLP, and now Wang for Balenciaga). We also had the re-rise of the Kate Moss, which still is amazing to watch. We had the Choupette obsession, along with all of Chanel's remarkable shows. Oh, can't forget the escalators at Louis Vuitton nor the high fashion debut of Kate Upton. Cara D's complete takeover. Grace Coddington's i-D cover. Emma Stone's red carpet perfection. Khaleesi and the Dothraki chic. Phillip Lim's handbags being the most wanted and worn piece, like, ever. The Russian fashionistas taking over the Parisian streets. And the list goes on, and on, and on...

See? It really has been one hell of a year. It also leaves a lot of unanswered questions too, which is exciting as 2013 is just about officially here.

I want to take this chance and say how grateful I am to be where I am at this point in my life. No, I'm not in head to toe Proenza, walking the streets of New York City like I totally wish I was, but still. I'm happy. And I want to say thanks to everyone in my life now, for being so totally awesome. I want to thank all of my readers, for being so totally awesome too. And quickly before this gets all award speech-y, I want to wish you all the best in 2013. May there be peace, love, happiness, opportunities, and success' for all.
