'til we meet again...

au revoir...

braided heart

farewell fashion week. you were a long haul and worth every extra hour. i hobbled down cobblestone streets in ridiculous shoes. i wore an obscene amount of red lipstick. i bought my man friend's balenciaga brief case for pennies. i accepted every glass of champagne that came my way. i saw some really beautiful collections and met some fashion legends and icons, young and old(er). i think fashion is starting to see the light at the end of the so-called recession tunnel.

and i met the style rookie. hot dang. and i didn't even freak out too much on her. i didn't ask her to rap or take a photo with me. and i didn't call her "precious" or "adorable". i hear she hates that. instead i fixed her and her blogger pals a snack plate at the slow and steady wins the race installation. and played it cool...kind of.

*p.s if you haven't invested in some sswtr pieces, i highly recommend it. not only is it reasonably priced for avant-garde fashion, but the designer is one of the kindest and smartest, down-to-earth girls on the block. someone i am thankful i know, and happy to have worked for. go here, here, and here for the goods.

your drawings just keep getting lovelier! fashion week sounds so exciting. you're lucky to have met some of the bigwigs - i'm sure you absolutely charmed them! and there is no such thing as too much red lipstick (people can follow my route based on the lipstick traces i leave on glasses and napkins and cutlery... it's embarrassing, really).

Aw! Your week sounds so much fun... and I second the request to see that Balenciaga briefcase.

I am forever swearing that I will buy a pair of those SSWTR wedge sandals in black. One day!
