weekend happy

September 16, 2011

well new york fashion week has officially ended. i’ve been so out of the loop these last seven days, i’ll hopefully be catching up on the shows this weekend.

from the snippets i’ve seen mr. lauren {always a favorite} did not disappoint.

jason wu’s design’s looked dazzling as well.

and i’m gaga for rag & bone. casual and colorful. adjectives i don’t normally gravitate toward with my apparel, even though it’s the uniform of choice here in southern california. but marcus wainwright and david neville created a collection even this stuffy, i-love-my-black-on-black-on-black girl could shimmy ’round the rodeo in.

what were your favorites of last week?

and thank you so much for your kind words yesterday. i savored every single word!!

see you on the other side of sunday m’loves.

perspective

for me the glass isn’t half full nor is it half empty.

thirst is what counts.

i’ve wasted too much time focusing on the contents of the cup.

slurping up buckets and buckets of excess for fear of another drought;

resulting in regret. the shameful, severing kind.

a qualm nonetheless.

only i can quell and quench the stirrings in my ping-pong brain.

no matter how full or how hydrating someone/something seems to appear;

i am my own deepest, most flourishing well.

decisions, decisions….

Next weekend I’m hijacking my girlfriend’s bacherlorette weekend with her sister-in-law to Jackson Hole. Now, I’ve never been one to wear mis-matched socks, but my friend Amanda oozes style. She rocks an Hermes cuff with her snap-legged yoga pants like nobody’s business. When we hang she’s Blair Warner to my Natalie Green. Except Nat and Blair are allowed to consume copious amounts of champagne in these episodes.

Although I  don’t leave for another 4 days, I’m usually pretty much packed by now with a complete list of hour by hour (sleeping and waking) wardrobe changes (yes i see a shrink, and yes she’s on speed dial.) I’m using the following to inspire me:

But who am i kidding??!? I don’t know how to fish!?!  Amanda in nature?!??! Fishing poles in our hands??!! It’d be like two monkeys fucking a football (thanks mom for that gem.) No, no, no…….I’m thinking shiatsu, bloody mary’s for breakfast, coffee by the fire, traipsing the village square with mugs of hot chocolate, and gourmet meals ruined by our uproarious laughter at the next table.

Mr Lauren’s 2009 fall line had some plucky duds I could see myself stomping around town making merriment:
