Sumatran Reserve brewed on the Clover. I may have finally found a Starbucks coffee that is strong enough for me.
I’m having a cocktail party for Palonka when she comes to stay with us in two weeks. Any of her NYC followers interested in attending? Message me for details.
I think I’m (at least temporarily) over the art scene. The Armory Show opening and its corresponding after party at MoMA tonight left me cold; the meaningless art striving the be the next big thing, the various attendees trying SO HARD to be avant guard, the mile long line for the champagne bar… I was vaguely irritated all night. I love how good art makes me feel, but the things that move me seem to be harder and harder to find. It’s distressing, because it’s my favorite part of my job, but right now I simply feel exhausted from the effort.
Lots more shows in the next two months. I guess I better buck up and refresh my attitude.
Bathroom shot: The Park Avenue Armory. This dress worked! A bit tight up top, but I wore a cardigan most of the night so it was fine. I really needed a necklace…my jewelry game is lacking.
So the dress I went out on a limb with did not work at all! Aside from being too big, it was just not what I expected, down the fabric and the trompe l’oeil jewels. I was hoping for an over the top fashion-y look, but it was completely matronly. Lesson learned. People generally develop a personal style for a reason, and I should stick to what works.
Now some praise for Rent the Runway. I contacted them and told them the dresses did not work and they got these two replacements to me by 7:00 p.m. I just love this company and have had nothing but great experiences. The dress on the left I have actually rented before and loved so much I want to buy it. (It’s nowhere to be found, unfortunately.) It is either backup for tonight or I can wear it to another event tomorrow. I am getting ready to try on the pink and black. I think it’s fun!
I’m obsessed. (That wasn’t a spoiler, right?)
