Today I visited Sable Crow at his newish office for the first time. Tres swank with a wonderful view!
Finally got to meet his mythical fancy dream of a boss. Ugh. I covet a mentor like him.
Then we enjoyed a long lunch. I had champagne because I'm on vacation. Sable Crow had an Arnold Palmer because he's a working stiff.
He's having a tough time right now personally. I was glad to hold his hand through it today. Glad I could remind him that he is gifted and beautiful and strong. That he is much more than just this moment.
Today I looked at him and realized that we've grown up together. Seen each other through so much. He's a part of me and I'm a part of him. And yet, after 12 years, he can still surprise me, perplex me, delight me. What a gift.
In the afternoon, catch a movie by myself. Love to do this, feels like I'm playing hooky.
Decided on Iron Man because superheros are on the brain from all the Met Gala coverage. Plus I crush on Robert Downey Jr. from way back. And well that Gwynnie mesmerizes me no matter how smug she is.
Love me a conflicted Marvel superhero too. How their outfits are always an integral part of the story. How, invariably, their costumes transform them. They actually use their clothes to create a different, more powerful version of themselves. I LOVE that idea.
Don't EVEN get me started about how much I'd twirl around as a child, hoping I'd turn into Wonder Woman. Sigh.
Guess my super sweet Diabolina alter ego will have to do for now :)
Beige wrap sweater
Calvin Klein black tank
Brick jersey dress
Faux Van Cleef & Arpels turquoise necklace
Marc by Marc Jacobs airline clutch
Forever 21 bubble gladiators
Yes, this clutch (and,eek, this sweater!) AGAIN.
I just can't get enough of it. I mean it's delicious and goes with everything. Even Mr. Diabolina's lounging shorts!
Was tired of pants today but still needed to cover up the nibbled-on legs. So decided to be a trickster and wear my new tube dress as a skirt. Voila! I used to do this alot in high school and college so I figured why not.
Well, it didn't work 100 percent because the proportion was a bit off but I was proud of myself for thinking outside the box. Also had fun fidgeting with it all day. I wore it high waisted in the early part of the day and then low slung in the afternoon. Lots of possibilities in one outfit.
And don't you love the color of the dress/skirt with the turquoise? TO.DIE.FOR.
Excited that while playing with Polyvore last week discovered these $17 Forever 21 sandals are a knock-off of $140 Day Birger et Mikkelsen tube leather sandals. Sassy look for less buy.
Sable Crow's boss seemed to agree. He glanced at my shoes - twice! - with fascination. Love a powerful man who peeps a woman's shoes.
p.s. Here's my Met Gala round-up
This Philip Lim wins my favorite confection of the night. A total and utter dream of a dress. Not sure how wearable it is for anyone other than a tiny teenaged model named Chanel but I'd love to try.
Oh and note the belted waist. It's coming for us.
Christina Ricci, in Givenchy Haute Couture was on theme and unique.
Found this metallic Atelier Versace dress with a cape/winged back stunning.
And finally the superhero prom king and queen are Gisele and Zac Posen.
POW! ZOWIE! BANG!
Could they be any hotter?
