Gonna start a new day, truly happy
I was gonna take control of me
But eventually reality hit me mentally, physically, emotionally
And I opened my eyes and realized
That I was still being taken for a constant ride on your
Loving you ain’t nothing healthy
Loving you was never good for me
I can’t get off”
Last week I visited the MET for the Alexander McQueen exhibit. I clearly didn’t do my research because who knew that the museum closed at 5:15pm.
Like, what a random time?
Anyways…I got there with ZERO minutes to spare and at first couldn’t get in. However Kirstie Alley came to the rescue when her PA showed up saying that she needed to get in since it was Kirstie’s daughters birthday. So in went her crew and right behind her swiftly went my coworkers and I. We had only 8 minutes to zoom through the room.
Amazing… Fascinating… Intriguing…
This man’s creative genius had me beside myself. There where moments where I was emotionally caught up in his work and misty-eyed. You could see the struggle that he was having and a lot of that instability reflected in his designs. The emotional roller coaster…
I questioned why no one saw his troubles or sought to help him.
It’s really sad that not only the fashion industry lost him but the world as well. Fashion is art and what a valuable contribution he’s made thus far and could have continued to make.

I waited while they spoke. Well guess what!!?!?! The freaking bus took my dress back to New York. I spoke with dispatch and they said they they would place the dress on the first bus back but I had to call at 5am. Although down I made sure to party it up with with my girls and after our night of partying I woke up at 6am (I could only open one eye to dial the company) to make sure that it was going to be placed on the first bus back to Baltimore. My dress arrived with the first bus with 6 hours to spare before the wedding. AMEN!
I believe it’s always a battle to figure out what’s truly appropriate to wear to a wedding. I’ve touched on this before but even a year later it’s still tough and if this dress didn’t return to Baltimore it would have been one hell of a struggle.
Long or short…
Print or solid…
Cotton or silk….
Sleeveless or cap sleeves…
You never want to match the bridal party and shouldn’t wear white. But guess who matched the bridal party to a “T”! UGH…I wasn’t a fan but with the high spirits of love and well wishes absolutely nothing could take away from this amazing moment. I LOVE, love. It was great to be around my girls and of course we started betting who’d be next. Looks like I’ll have a wedding to attend every year until we’re all picked off one by one. I can’t wait!

I’m proud to say that I know several people who’ve skipped several rungs on the ladder into leadership position before they’ve hit 30 years old. Shoot I just read that Olivier Rousteing Marks a 25-year-old French designer is set to take over the reigns of Balmain. TWENTY-FIVE! No this is not a type-o! This young man joined Balmain in 2009… yes TWO YEARS AGO! Anything is possible…
I’m a pretty driven person and I’ve noticed that with most of the conversations that I have with friends, we’re always wondering what’s next. We all get that two-year itch if things aren’t moving fast enough good, bad or indifferent. Despite the way this looks to our parentals it seems that hopping around gives title changes and additional bank notes. Loyalty today comes in the form of a two-year stint. I’ve been told that after a year you have every right to look else where if need be. Now a year is a bit much because that time can surely fly but is a year and half enough? Is it two years? What truly decides when it’s time to go other than a boss or coworker that disrespect you?
