sunday confessions.

1.  In the past month or so, work has picked up ten-fold and it has been very difficult to pretend to be thrilled.  I was quite happy as a lady of relative leisure.  I should mention here that I own my own business.  Counter-intuitive? Yes.  True? Also yes.
2.  I snuck into the Alexander Wang show with the help of a friend of a friend and it was worth it.  The last Alexander Wang show I went to was in 2007 (with the help of a different friend of a friend).  It was time.
2. Over the course of last ten days, I watched every single Made in Chelsea episode ever aired (including the holiday specials) and have come to the conclusion that I am still, gratifyingly fascinated in equal parts by Ollie and Rosie.
Made in Chelsea: party like it's 1989
4.  It is not uncommon that I completely invent statistics to support my point.  I am a huge believer in this rule of thumb: people are 87% more likely to believe something said with conviction and supporting evidence, than without (see what I did there?)
5. I'm still waiting for Godot.

  3. #4 is SO true. I make up complete and total crap at work all the time but I say it as though it were absolute fact. It never ceases to amaze me that I'm not called out on my b.s. more often.

    1. I am pretty impressed with how little attention is paid to my very, very high bullshit frequency :)

  4. Oh, I hear you with the work thing. I'm currently in the lady of leisure thing and kinda concerned about where my next work is going to come from, but believe you me... when business picks up, I'll be whining about it!

    1. I miss sleeping in and taking a thoughtful walk, maybe a bone dry cap, ahhh, those were the good days.

  5. Pretty sure I love #4 - you're totally right. As long as you are able to sound convincing, people will believe you.

  6. This post makes me want to watch Marie Antoinette... badly. Did you get any pics of the Wang show? Did you see anyone exciting?

    1. Despite the rhetoric, I adore Kirsten Dunst. She was so great in the movie with Ryan Gosling, the name of which escapes me. I took pictures on my phone, most of which have flashes from across the runway making them a bit trippy. This could also have everything to do with my photography skills. A few good shots on the reverse walk, will post soon :)

  7. omg, i love that statistic comment. It is so true, even if it's completely made up! LOL. And that's so cool you snuck in to see the Alexander Wang show!! I'm pretty jealous. :) Hope you are having a good weekend! <3

    1. If you can't get in the front, go through the back. If you don't know the answer, make it up. If you're clever, you won't take my advice :)

  13. My husband is totally with you on the 'said with conviction' thing. He likes to use phrases like "people say" or "I've heard" frequently. I now jokingly ask him, if polled, what the 'people' in his head think about a certain topic. The boys knows how to sound convincing.

  14. It can be difficult to get back into working constantly when you get so use to having a easy workload. Thats awesome that you made it into the fashion show. I would love to go one of these years.
