I somehow managed to remember to take a photo of my least favorite outfit of the week. It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just that it wasn’t what I was planning on wearing but I only had a few clean blouses left to choose from. I let my laundry pile grow to the point of embarrassment – it’s really pathetic. I don’t even have to do my own laundry; we drop it off at a laundromat that charges by the pound. Yet somehow, I seem to have more of an issue with dropping off my laundry to be done by someone else than doing it myself (when I had my own washing machine). I like to procrastinate, obviously.
On this particular evening, I had the pleasure of bringing Bobby’s boss’s daughter, Grace, to her first show at Lincoln Center. While we were waiting in line for Mackage, I broke my heel! I rocked back on my heels and crack! there goes the left heel. Luckily, it didn’t come completely off and I was able to drag it along the carpet like a dead weight. Oddly enough, it was the one day I didn’t have my flats with me – and though Kmart’s concierge (they had a special service during fashion week for emergencies such as this!) kindly offered to save me with a pair of flats, I toughed it out and hobbled my way into the show. We were fortunate to have really great seats, so the struggle was limited to the entrance and exit – and I made it through the night without falling. What can you do, except drag your little broken heel behind you with your head held high?
p.s. I dropped off my laundry!
