Start spreading the news…

Tuesday, January 29, 2008

It has been quite an incredible week over here at Spinach Headquarters. To start, we are back from our fantastic trip to Beijing, with two stuffed-to-the-max suitcases in tow, which have now exploded on the living room floor. (There was a lot of squeezing and squishing and somewhat unattractive grunting to get them to close.) Luckily, I suppose, there is not much laundry to do, as I managed to wear my charcoal gray, tunic-length, dramatically funnel-necked Ted Baker sweater almost round-the-clock this week (it being extremely cute but also the warmest thing we brought. Note to self: Arsenal of adorable little dresses and peep-toe patent heels not so practical for bitterly cold Beijing January.) We are very happy to be home.

Bonus good luck: The Super Shuttle dropped us off first! That never happens.

Then, we were alerted to yesterday's Newsday, which said some very nice things about us (toward the bottom, if you're looking). Excuse our happy surprise, but: wow. {update} Our co-"It blogger" and daily must-read Daddy Likey made us laugh out loud with the title of her post on the write-up.

And now, we are slowly unpacking and slowly repacking in anticipation of heading off to New York this weekend. Because, as you may have guessed from our various elusive references these past few weeks, Gucci has invited us up to New York as part of the festivities for their New York flagship reopening (including a big party, co-hosted by Madonna. Um. !!!). We're excited to meet the other fashion blogger-types and catch up with the always lovely Susie Bubble, who has cheerfully been discussing outfit options with us via e-mail these past few weeks. (Er, because isn't that what one immediately starts obsessing about the moment one is invited to some big fancy bash?) No, we have absolutely no idea what to wear (okay, we have a few ideas, but we haven't quite made up our mind yet). And yes, we are really, really excited and somewhat amazed and a teensy bit bewildered. But mostly excited. Immediately upon arrival, we plan on jumping up and down on our fancy hotel bed and ordering a big pink drink with an umbrella from room service. In the Eloise spirit of things and all. Want to join me?

In the meantime, we return to our normal schedule of offering up lots of cute things and other fashiony musings.

SB has really involved readers in her outfit quandary, so it will be exciting to see what you two intrepid Gucci-goers come up with for the big event!

SO Exciting!!!!! I'm sure you'll find a fabulous frock to wear, and if you don't, in the words of 'Little Edie' Bouvier Beale " you can always take off the skirt and use it as a cape. So I think this is the best costume for today"
