Oh Friday, you ARE perfection.
I will be late for a string of plans today - it's GORGEOUS out - and I am so energized by yesterday's lunch with the 'girls.' The group of girls and women of all ages - as diverse as we are - is just, frankly, amazing. I couldn't stop thinking about it last night: it's what makes series like Friends or Sex & the City so popular: that fantasy, not about the perfect relationship, but about friendship with women without competition, agenda, or jealousy.. I mean, most, if not all, of us yesterday have great husbands or boyfriends, and yet what seems to bind us - besides our love of fashion, or being bloggers (or models) or, as we discovered, love of cooking and beautiful, good food - or we like the same tv shows - is this.. for lack of a better word: this generous spirit. Just a contagious joy to be alive, and excitement about the world. I get so energized from these amazing women.
Anyway, I'm typing this fast as I run out the door. Jen the Style Crusader has already done a wonderful post on the day - she's no slacker, she's uploaded her shots! - and I'm posting two she sent of me at the V&A (fair dues, I shot the ones of her & Hedvig, so it's like virtual posting: or, posting once removed).
Everything is borrowed today: I stole this title from the delightful Lucy's blog of the same name, borrowed the photos by Jen, dress from American Apparel.. and the thoughts, from everyone else. Well as the buddhists say (I"m paraphrasing) nothing is our own, nothing is permanent, let's just go out in the sunshine and have a party.
