Tomorrow is another day....

I'm living such a charmed life!!!!

.... I mean yes, there are things that I could complain about.  I'd give anything to pick up the phone and hear my Dad say, "Hey Kid", ... sigh.

It would be nice to live in a building where I didn't hear my neighbors argue about the trash, .... wouldn't mind having a larger fashion budget, most days I feel 10... okay 20 lbs larger than I'd like to be, .....annnnd I have more bad hair days than good hair days.

See?  I'm really fantastic at the moaning and groaning... but when I really think about it.....

.... I'm fearless, because I grew up with a Dad that REALLY believed in all my crazy ideas, and that will be with me forever.

You know what I've learned from being on a budget and not a size 0? Being creative enough, to dress curves and having style, is the same thing as a multimillion dollar purse... when it comes to fashion. Wink.

So in honor of something Dad said to me all the time... Tomorrow is another day,.... this post is about what I'm looking forward to.


First, The Boss is on tour, I have tickets, and I'm going to see her at Radio City with my 'born to wear stilettos' cousin Mikee!!
****Side note: check out my Mazzoni Center post to see how you can see Diana and also contribute to a great cause. *****
Second, The Costume Institute at the Met is opening a new show titled
"American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity"... Can't wait to see the exhibit and dish about the red carpet gala hosted by Oprah Winfrey and Anna Wintour with my Fashion Family.  Also, a related exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, American High Style: Fashioning a National Collection will highlight masterworks from the Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection.

... speaking of Anna Wintour, SJP is on the cover of the May Issue of Vogue!  The article didn't have many surprises, it was classic Sarah Jessica, 'down to earth in the most fabulous way', but the photos are dreamy.  I'm really looking forward to seeing what SJP dreams up for the 2011 Halston Heritage Line.  Wow! ... Now that's a gig!

 .... and while we're on the subject of SJP.  CARRIE BRADSHAW is back!!!! And in theaters Memorial Day Weekend! (aka as my birthday weekend!!!) Ahhh... the mysteries of the Universe, that all these fantabulous wonders land in my little backyard.

.... Ever forward, tomorrow is another day.

  31. Following as shiki.

    I love SATC! And the first movie. Looking forward to this one and maybe even a third?

    I am half Charlotte, half Samantha. I think? Not too sure. It seems that way to myself. Or rather, I want to be.

    Thanks for this!
