Brighter Days Ahead

I’m sick of winter. It’s still January, so figure, fifty more days of frigid weather still in front of me, I am re-imagining the many ways to wear my boring black layers. Today on the battlefield, I had on a tank top, fleece-lined tights, jeans over that, a turtleneck, a big chunky sweater, wool socks, a down coat, a neck funnel, a fur topper and despite my best efforts, it was still hard to breathe. In spite of all these obstacles, I am marching on in the sleet and slush, and daydreaming of spring and sunny days to come.

In the midst of this helluva Polar Vortex, I could a: move to warmer climes, b: purge my closets of the collective clutter, or c: plan an inspiring new wardrobe. What do you think I chose? Screw the elements.

I”m not a red girl but this may be an interesting opportunity to explore the unknown. Boyy Front row only clutch because since Fashion week is just around the corner, its front row or nothing.

But going back to the above thought, I could move to LA.

It always seems like the better coast, but I can’t say I would be one hundred percent happy there either. Besides the beautiful weather, there’s too much traffic and smog, they order bagels from people who don’t yell at them, they don’t care about New York pizza. Epic fail. They legally smoke weed, surf, go to work in flip-flops and drive Priuses. I could eat avocados and do yoga all day long.

But, I am going to stick to the city I love, with the white fluffy stuff and the constant smell of pee. New York inspires people to accomplish great things they could not imagine anywhere else. There is always greatness just around the corner, like the pipe dream of more closet space. I am going to clear out my closets, and make room for the wonderful things in 2014. And dream of summer…all it takes is a little bit of MAGIK.
