First of all, I have to say I miss all of you. I miss keeping up with your blogs and I miss my daily blog posts. I miss sharing my banana musings and adventures and meals and outfits.
I have so much to tell you about weddings and Oscar parties and books and TV shows and scotch tastings and jean straps and drag queens. And of course, there are all the new funny schemes I've got cooking and fashion trends I am loving and the 101 funny things my mom's said in the last 30 days and the biiig changes Mr. Diabolina has been pondering lately.
Sadly however I've gotten out of practice. Life has just filled in the space I once carved out for the blog and suddenly there's been less blog, more living. And I must confess that after nearly two years of writing daily, sometimes just curling up in a ball and NOT blogging is what feels right most nights.
A reader recently shared she finds the new format "tiring" and I appreciate her feedback. In fact I completely understand. After all, I'm usually pretty fucking tired when I get around to blogging lately so of course that comes across in the quality of what I'm creating. Sigh. I keep waiting for inspiration to strike and to find the new format that feels manageable and inspiring but I got nothing so far.
For now I just wanted to do what I do best and be honest and share what I'm thinking. I also wanted to let you know I am heading to NYC tomorrow!!! For a little consulting gig that I was approached about last month. Could be the first in a series of stylish projects that might just add up to a whole new fashionable phase of my career. Fingers and toes crossed.
I'm excited and nervous about the road ahead. And the fact that it isn't quite clear or defined for once feels thrilling not terrifying.
Same goes for the blog.
Hope you'll stick with me as I figure all this out.
In the meantime, here's a smattering of the looks I'll be channeling while I'm in NYC. Thinking tons of black, snoods, tights, boots, layers, fierce jewelry and bold makeup.
And most importantly, expandable waist lines. I've requested that after my big meeting on Thursday, Jean Bean and Peaches spend the rest of the weekend feeding me. And those two pigs always oblige their visiting favorite porker ;)
See all our previous NYC adventures to tide you over until I return: here here here here here here here here here here here here here here and here.
