Huge deadline at work today. Spent most of the day frazzled and cursing the media for it. If it hadn't been for all the swine flu madness, Mr. Diabolina and I would've been sipping margaritas stress-free in Mexico for the Robotos wedding today. Wah.
But clearly the universe had different plans for us. I know now we were meant to be in L.A. today. We were supposed to be here so Mr. D could get a call this afternoon about a tragic family emergency. A family emergency that is not my story to share here but one that has forever changed the life of the man I love so it is now part of my story too.
Tonight, Mr. Diabolina got on a plane to go help a family member in need...like the superhero he is. Tonight my mother and Sable Crow came over to hold my hand when he was gone...like the superheros they are.
Tonight, when I was alone in the stillness, I wept. I wept over a flood of memories I've spent half my life trying to forget. I wept over all the challenges that now await Mr. Diabolina.
I also prayed for the first time in a long time. I prayed to whoever was listening. I prayed for strength and wisdom on the road ahead.
Please keep Mr. D in your thoughts. Kiss.
Marc by Marc Jacobs dress
Forever 21 jacket
Fashion District earrings and sandals
Louis Vuitton Damier purse
Forever 21 cuff
Built today's outfit around the earrings. Little $5 approximations of Louis Vuitton ones that start at $900.
The earrings reminded me of that adorable Murakami cherry print.
Which always reminds me of today's adorable dress.
Think the print would have worked deliciously with another LV spring 2009 accessory
These glorious stilettos - see the little dangling cherries???
Love that I was wearing this dress today of all days. It's what I was wearing in one of my all time favorite pictures with Mr. Diabolina. It was taken at a beautiful celebration where all of Mr. D's family was gathered...and happy.
Striking how neatly beauty and tragedy can be knit together in the fabric of our lives, no?
