Fashion Bucket List

Last week I got an Hermes silk scarf at their sample sale.  After following a girl and her boyfriend around the room waiting for her to set it down, a random man set the same one on the table and I immediately snatched it up.  I love hot pink so the solid scarf in Rose Mexique is perfect.  I haven't worn it yet because I still have to figure out how I want to wear it.  I definitely haven't figured out the halter top.

So when I told my friend B about the list of classic items I've wanted for years, this guy referred to it as a fashion bucket list.  I guess you can call it that. Now I can check off #3 of ten.  Shopping with no regrets is a high like no other.

What I Wore Today

kate spade cafe melody dress, tory burch flats, sweater from ross

My black satin karolinas are in the dust bag behind me and you can't see my Chanel m/l classic flap bag which I finally got around to photographing.   My camera phone really doesn't do it justice.  After 3.5 months of owning this bag I am pleased to say that I have not seen anyone else with this bag (and I live in the east 60s on the Upper East Side!).

Jackie O

I just finished watching Jacqueline Kennedy: In Her Own Words and I found her to be so inspiring. I think I got my love for pearls, sunglasses, and jack rogers from watching her. Her patriotism, loyalty, and love for reading struck me even more than her style. She revitalized the White House and worked to procure items of historical importance. She spoke several languages, and educated herself about current events. Sometimes I get so frustrated with women. It seems the more attractive and well groomed the lady, the more vacuous I find her to be. It's so refreshing to see an example of a woman with great style who didn't abandon attention to her character and intellect in order to achieve it. She told Ms. Magazine "It's sad, so many women of [her] generation were never encouraged to use the full power of their minds." Sadly, I can say the same for mine.

Staying in Touch

I've lost touch with most of my friends in the past couple of years.  It's really hard to want to call people and keep in touch when there is nothing new to say.  People keep getting new jobs, getting engaged, getting pregnant . . . and nothing's happened here.  In the past two years I've grown spiritually and I've become healthier than ever but no one cares about that.  What's really scary is that I've gone from being super extroverted to spending a lot of time by myself.  What does that mean?  I might as well move to the country.
