Story of My Life

29 May

I remembered every single word of this, after not hearing it for 20+ years. But I have to look up my office phone number if I need it.

Just for the record: After the season finale of Project Runway, a website called SeenOn sells all of the final pieces. They’ve only been doing this for two seasons, I think, but you, the viewer, can buy the actual dresses that the final three send down the actual runway at Fashion Week.

And this season, every outfit that Mondo designed, sold out — most within the first twelve hours or so (they’re between about $400-900, and size mostly 2-4, but one-of-a-kind originals.) When they closed the store, only two of Gretchen’s outfits had sold. The two cheapest, by the way, but with the boldest necklaces. Which she admits someone else forged for her. I still don’t understand why they gave April’s spot to her.

Just saying.

If I ever need a formal dress, Mondo’s definitely on my short list, with Chris March and Laura Bennett. Not necessarily in that order.

Boho is dead. Thank god.


The people in this world

11 Oct

My neighbors had two lovely little birds that they kept outside. I couldn’t begin to guess what kind — I never saw them up close — but not the squawky kind. They sang and twittered, and wolf-whistled at me when I got out of my car, which I found particularly endearing.

Other outdoor birds would often land near them, mourning doves and wrens. I’d see them sitting in the hanging baskets and laugh at them having a chat, like it was tea time.

And someone stole them. The woman came out one morning and their blanket was off, and they were gone. Part of me hopes that it was just some drunk who wanted to play with them and accidentally let them go — but that’s not really likely is it?

It breaks my heart. I don’t understand why people are so hateful, and I stupidly keep wishing they’ll come back.
