Hi from New York.
Sunday, September 07, 2008
I've been up in the Big Apple since Thursday night and – despite fitting in regular naptimes—have managed to do more in three days than I've done in the past few weekends combined. New York is amazingly energizing like that. I've been flitting around the Fashion Week tents, of course—today, Bill Cunningham actually snapped my picture and I very nearly died of excitement—but also running all around Soho with Johanna (we are now both the proud new owners of the Awesomest Shoe-Booties Ever!), catching incredible erotic circus performances and hanging out with the hip kids (and also Debbie Matenopolous, who was one table over).
There has not been, unfortunately, a lot of time for blogging. But! Here are a few things to tide you over for another day or two:
+I did the cover story of today's Washington Post Magazine – a look at all the behind-the-scenes people who contribute to one single wedding. It was done in a marathon photo shoot (more than 65 people!) back in May, so it's kind of thrilling to finally see it in print and online. That's one of the shots of the couple we profiled above. Aren't they incredibly adorable?
+Over on Washingtonian.com, I have a piece on five fall style must-haves. And yes, I totally bought that first ABS dress myself; it's totally Mouret-ish and super-phenomenal. Plus! I feel like I should let you know that H&M just started stocking a really nice lace legging for $20, which is a much more reasonably priced version of the one I picked for the story. And yes, I bought the H&M leggings too.
+Project Runway carries on in my weekly recaps (this week: my PR prayers were finally answered!). I am SO hoping to go to the Bryant Park finale show on Friday.
+First thoughts from people-watching at fashion week: Loving fringe-y details; hats are huge; and slouchy, slouchy flat boots are a must-have for fall. (With thick slouchy kneesocks underneath.) More on that front soon!
