stuff you care about, which will drastically change your life

Well, high school has sufficiently managed to take over my life. I am still figuring out how to manage all this "homework" you people speak of. When you kids on Tumblr were stressing, you really weren't kidding!

Thankfully, I really really like high school so far. Which is why I am actually sad (sad!) to be missing these next couple weeks for a few moments of insanity. Today my dad and I are leaving for Antwerp, Belgium as we were generously invited to Stephen Jones' exhibit at the MoMu (and you can bet I will be wearing that bow hat, WEARING IT LIKE NO MAN OR WOMAN HAS EVER WORN A BOW HAT BEFORE, GODDAMN.) It should result in some wonderful photos and lots of exciting stories, too.
Speaking of the bow hat, the new issue of Pop has come out, which means my article about couture week in Paris is out, which means I can now transfer my fangirling over to the blog. So many photos and stories to come, but for now I am kind of obsessed with this photo my dad took when I was talking to John Galliano backstage:
Anyway, then we will then be headed to Fashion Week in New York, yay, etc. I'll be tweeting/blogging the event for and hanging out at Barneys, so follow them and all that, and also stop by and say hello!

I also recommend heading over to Opening Ceremony at 35 Howard Street where some of my clothes will be for sale. I love them and would wear and have worn them all, but we have a rule at my house about closet space and some things have to go. Other things at my booth will be brand new donations from when I was working on my Bat Mitzvah project, Clothing With a Cause. My entire portion of the profits from the clothes will go towards the same organization I used before, STAND. Go back and read my post on CWAC or the post I wrote about it for the Pop blog and then buy something and feel good about it.

All this craziness means that I will really suck at email for the next few weeks, so apologies in advance. Now might not be the best time to write me and expect an urgent response.

Now that you're done reading about all these important events that are vital to your own life, enjoy this wonderful old Comme ad:

I haven't had homework since before the summer and exams which was...what, April? I don't think I actually remember what it is...school should be interesting.
Have fun on your various fashionable escapades, I'm living vicariously through you...

Catharina said...

Erica Love said...

it-girl said...

Nice blog!

Kate said...

hmmm - I hate to break it to you, but high school is easy. It's a joke. Wait until college (if you intend to go that is) or grad school. Then you will know what work is like.

aoife said...

belgium is lovely! have fun! i don't know the area you are going to but...i know that a lot of belgium is sitting on old unexploded ww1 shells. look out by the sides of the road for them, the farmers pick them up and simply leave them on the side of the road to be collected!
i saw 6 in about 5 minutes one day!

Amie K said...

Love your blog, enjoy high school-it comes to an end so quickly! Glad you have settled in and you enjoy it!

have fun in antwerp and nyc! hopefully the weather here in chicago will be perfectly autumn when you return.

Emilie said...

That sounds like an awesome time. And that is crazy that your school is alright (I'm assuming they are?) with you missing that much class. I had to battle it out to miss three days for a field hockey tournament in Florida ha.

the "rondale-ferraro 84" button reminds me of THE OC :)))))

watchingtheimages said...

Erm, I live in Antwerp ...
any chance of meeting you?? I was planning on going to the MoMu anyway ... (a)

And as for that bombshell story, maybe that's true for a 100 km², but certainly not whole Belgium.

fairytale said...

wow you're coming to belgium! that's awesome! are you going to stay a few days? would be funny to spot you in antwerp :p

Miss Dolly said...

I'm still so completely in awe of the opportunities that have come your way. '...when I was talking to John Galliano backstage' - so brilliantly casual.

Glad you're enjoying high school, I'd worry about it being difficult for someone with a true sense of style (read: not the norm). Excited to see the return of the bow hat - have fun!
