overheard in Brooklyn

(on my corner, after a very long day at work, walking home from the subway on a sticky, hot day)

Two girls, at most 6 years old, splinter off from a group playing in the spray from a hijacked fire hydrant:

Girl 1: "Hey, let's go play at my place!  I live just right there!"
Girl 2 (hesitating): "Oooh.  I been playing all day....  Ima wear myself through."

an escape

Last month, the volcanic ash in Iceland precluded our plans to visit Zurich and Barcelona, so we decided to take a restorative trip down to the Dominican Republic instead.  I had just quit my job and would start a new one soon, and being in the caribbean with my man for a week, touring a little and enjoying pina coladas in the heat was the most freeing and calming feeling I'd had in a a while.  What a great trip!

this is it

I need a closet full of iterations of this outfit for my new job in fashion.  Love it.
