Is it incredibly lame to make yourself friendship bracelets? Nah. Well, maybe, but who cares. I don't believe for a second that all these girls with arms full of them have that many BFFs and I surely don't (but I couldn't ask for anything better than the ones I do have!). Anyway, my very best friend for life, my mommy, came over the other day to catch up over old photos I found in my Grandmother's attic and we ended up sitting and braiding these together - getting great mileage out of my $10 super-sized bag of rainbow embroidery floss. Wore this look out in Santa Monica with Sean, who is a huge fan of the drop-crotch diaper look (not).
While I'm waiting for Fashion Month to be over before I talk about my favorite collections, can we just have a brief BFF love-fest post? Ok, I'll start. One of my very best friends, Leah (who is no doubt reading this, so hi!) is away in Kenya for a year doing amazing work (it's so nice to use the word "amazing" in the not-so-hyperbolic sense for a change!) for the Kibera School for Girls and I could not be more proud of her. Luckily we've got Skype to make the distance a little less painful and the photos she sends me of the kids are priceless. But I have to make sure she remembers who her first little African baby was! I wish I could go visit her, but I'm super excited to see what textiles and trinkets she brings me back (hint hint, Leah!). Anything in particular I should have her keep an eye out for? Man, I'm selfish.
