my sister gave me this book for christmas last year, and i have been waiting for the right time to share it. allegedly, supposedly, according to some heresay, these illustrations were done by andy warhol before he became a fixture in 1960's new york pop culture. if you have ever lived in new york, i highly recommend seeking this book out. even though it was written decades ago, it still feels shockingly contemporary. filled with all of the arbitrary INs and OUTs that make people feel hip.
hmmm, what will be IN in 2010? hand-written letters and hand-made gifts? shopping your closet? drinking lots of water( to balance out the champagne)? flossing? saying no to snarkiness? self-sufficiency? upcycling? board games? make,do, and mend? gratitude? humility? positive thinking? optimism? dear god, please let optimism be a major IN.
what do you hope to see become a trend in 2010? i'd love to hear your thoughts.
*p.s. this post is so OUT written by an OUT gal living in an IN city.
