Today I leave for a 2 + week trip to Ontario/Quebec, mostly on wedding-related business. Craig and I are going to his brother’s wedding in Sorel on Saturday, so by tomorrow night I’ll be enjoying fun times in Montreal. Then I’ve got a couple of weeks in Toronto, which will likely be filled with totally shallow social interaction and some cottaging. Then it’s up to Ottawa for Canada Day and J-Dawg’s wedding. D is flying in for that, but just for the weekend. I’m looking forward to it all, of course, but feeling dizzy bizzy too. And poor, of course. ‘Cause all this fun is beginning to add up.
Speaking of moola, I finally spent some of my ION bucks (which is how I describe the free stuff I get from designers as a perk of working for a fashion magazine). I picked up a whole mess of stuff at Nettwerk/Chulo Pony today (wholesale, of course!) – some of which is shown below, plus a beautiful pair of Paige jeans and a hoodie by Bench, The jeans and the Bench top came to almost $400 – just for those two items. Now, they were comped, so it’s not like I actually spent any money, but there’s something about the idea of it that makes me uncomfortable.
It’s the knowing. Knowing that my ass is swaddled in $250 jeans just feels… wrong somehow.
So wrong it’s right, maybe. :D
Sigh. Things are so GOOD today: Pretty pretty new things, no work for two weeks, no sleep till Brooklyn!
I’m packed and I’m holdin’,
