Ok, so I haven’t been posting regularly. It’s summertime and I deserve to be lazy and enjoy life, dammit! After slaving away in the spring and a portion of this summer, I took a step back and realized that life is not all about work. Since then, I’ve been spending more time enjoying the hot weather, hitting outdoor concerts and trekking out to Rockaway and Brighton Beach.
This past weekend, Beegi and I got the chance to escape the city and head upstate to the Catskills. Our friends Stu and Hilary hosted “Stupalooza,” Stu’s annual birthday bash at their vacation home in the Catskills. We spent our weekend lazing by the pool, lounging in the hot tub, drinking margaritas and bloody marys, playing paintball, pigging out on BBQ and playing with Nacho the baby goat. At night when the temperature dipped down to 50 degrees (F), we’d sit by the campfire and roast hotdogs, Charlie Brown-style. The mountain air and weather was amazing; I returned to the city feeling refreshed and well-rested. A much-needed vacation!
Yes, I am getting back to fashion posts this week; I know it’s been a while. In the meantime, “postcard moments” from Stupalooza… After all, fashion isn’t just about what you wear; it encompasses your life…
