Monday. Blah. Week two begins...
Best part of my day was reading an email from M&M herself. Great news: she and her husband are coming home Wednesday!!! Thank god.
Her spirits sound good. She's optimistic: "We have good hope that I will walk again...both my doctors and I hope that one day I will return to Linksfield and walk through the hospital doors." Amazing.
She even mustered a crack about her hospital room being the best decorated in the wing; though, she noted, the drapes and TV were a bit dated for her taste! Wonderful to hear her Martha Stewart come out, means she feels like herself.
She also said she has gotten the best care, that all the Africans - medical personnel and otherwise - have been amazing, helpful, hopeful. What a blessing.
She signed off saying she and her husband are anxious about getting on a plane again so to keep them in our thoughts. Ugh, understandable. Can't imagine.
I'm anxious to see her. Maybe ChowChow and St. Jude and I can visit with her in the hospital over the holiday weekend!

So lots of fashion swirling in my head this a.m.
First and foremost this month's Vogue spread on Sex and the City was dancing around up there. So.fucking.hot. Carrie and Mr. Big and a video camera!!???. Um, delish. The shots at the Met? Ugh, sizzling.
But I was transfixed with more than my favorite fictional couple's chemistry. Much of the shoot was wedding inspired. And, for the first time in my life, I am trying to pay attention to bridal wear. My mom can thank Jean Bean and her impending nuptials to my fave Texan.
This Christian Lacroix coutre look - dripping pearls - had me at hello. Ugh and those feather Blahniks. Gimme gimme.
So decided to do my own work appropriate interpretation. Today I had lunch scheduled with my "buddy/mentor" appointed by my new boss. So decided to really look pulled together, timeless, classic. Which to me means a LBD with a cute jacket and splashes of Chanel.
Got this necklace years ago in downtown. Came with matching pearl earrings. $12 for both - tops.
Works purrfectly with the earrings. Decided to add the thin little headband to make it even more preppy, more chic.
Think my mentor didn't know what to make of me. She was in jeans and a sleeveless white peasant top. Sigh. I think I should move to Paris where people dress like they mean it. So Cal is just so...so...so...casual. Not my forte.
ALTHOUGH...I did blend high fashion with casual comfort at the gym today. You see I have been reading everywhere for months that little stars are soooo in. Picture me rolling my eyes. I mean what next - rainbows? Ugh. Fashion editors can be so REDIC.
I mean, yes, I get it, Chanel showed quite a few starry chiffony prints and Wonder Woman necklaces for Spring.
But does that really make for a full blown trend? Aren't certain prints evergreens? Sigh.
Regardless, I fished out this little hoodie today.
I am nothing if not a slave to fashion...
