Oh don't mind me, I'm just getting mentally and physically prepared for another New York summer. Watching this Sex and The City episode where Carrie is wearing the slinky, white dress for her "date" with Mr. Big. The one where Samantha let it be known that Carrie wasn't interested in HAVING sex, she merely wanted to look like it. Lately I've been grooving to Lauryn Hill, and Fiona Apple, The Roots, Zhane, plus a little Janet. Drumming up wardrobe ideas for the summer. Check the images below, don't you love how bronzed everyone looks? Fiona Apple's 'Criminal' video is one of my all time favorite videos. If only NYC weather would get consistent, the closet switcheroo I did a couple of weeks ago would make sense. Instead I'm still pulling out down coats for evening chills. I am ready for slinky dresses, layered jewelry -- lots of bangles, wild hair and attitude!
This video Break You Off by The Roots is another all-time favorite. Home-girls braids are taking me BACK!
In other news, I left my favorite pair of melanieDIZON shoes on the subway. I was all up & through my phone and almost missed my stop; I jumped up off at the last possible second, FELT my load was light, turned and saw my shoes continue on their journey. Meanwhile I had just picked them up for the 4th time from the cobbler. They'd got the works: new soles, heels, tightened straps and polishing. There's some lucky SOB in Coney Island having the time of their life in my damn shoes. But on a fro-yo run --- to numb the pain I stopped into the Telco and fell in love. Sure they're NOTHING like the shoes I lost, but aren't they sickening!!!
Some work, some play. My friend Matt and I are participating in the NBC's Comedy Playground contest. We met up at Saraghina for lunch, he took some quick flicks of me outside the restaurant. My feet look ashy, but I assure you I Shea buttered down that morning! lol
I was NOT in the mood for pizza, so I got the grilled eggplant sandwich, I added a side of fries and Matt and I churned out our pilot episode.
When I was a teen I watched A LOT of Katie Brown, and Rachel Ashwell's show Shabby Chic. I love the shabby chic aesthetic. And I love the decor inside Saraghina. It has a very rustic appeal. It's low-key, minimal and yet very warm. Plus its quite sexy at night, even at the communal tables. The next time you're visiting Bed-Stuy check it out!
I have my 2nd audition tomorrow for a feature film that I sent in a video for earlier in the week! I am super excited about it!!!
So I'll be logging off now to continue preparing! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
