WWKCD: What would Kelly Cutrone do?

I watch more then I listen, but I dig the Gossip Girl style. Always dressed up, classy. I started K.C’s book today. Gonna read a little more before bed. I’m about twenty pages and into it. Her attitude is totally refreshing. She doesn’t put up with whiny, negative, bitchy, complainers, and she knows what she’s doing because she worked at it. I find her to be quite admirable and I’m looking forward to seeing her IRL.

I love this:

“Because, if you’re the kind of person who senses there’s something out there beyond whatever it is you’re expected to do- if you want to be extra-ordinary- you will not get there by hanging around a bunch of people who tell you you’re not extraordinary. … We have a saying in New York: when you’re the most happening person at the party, it’s time to leave.”

– Kelly Cutrone, If You have to Cry, Go Outside


She grew up in a small town and always wanted the city. It’s inspiring to learn about people that do the kinda things you like doing. I’m glad I got her book today, I was due for a new one since that bee sting book before last Fall. I like reading. I read more books in the summer, winter is online time. I like to bike somewhere  with my book and lay under a tree,  on a park bench in the sun.

Did you know Kelly Cutrone used to read tarot cards  AND married Andy Warhol’s protégé, Ronnie Cutrone at 21? She has worked with the best fashion designers and heaps of interesting creative peeps. ELLE wrote about her here and asked a bunch of questions. This is my favorite Q/A:

On witchcraft: “A lot of people think I’m a Wiccan. I’m not; it takes too long. I’d rather take something and make it happen than get 75 herbs and stir them in a pot by the full moon.”

My Monday dress is hanging up read to go. This FORA stuff has really got me embracing my love of fashion full force just in time for Spring (& LGFW).
I’m nervous and excited.

My favorite feeling.

i always wanted to work in fashion until i did

I love this photo. I’m not sure the artist but I wish it was me. I’m polishing off the guestlist fro our FORA sneak peek tomorrow. I’m stoked. Kelly tweeted back to me @mtvcanada saying she’s might wear all pink instead of black. She always wears black.  Exciting. I dreamed of fashion, magazines,  and my job last night. It was great.  Woke up early, put on The City and made a plan to go buy Kelly’s book “If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You”. I remember I had a ‘hard ass’ boss once. It was my first job out of university,  I had always wanted to work in Toronto fashion. My boss, she was fierce. Everyone knew not to piss her off. She was strict and opinionated. I leaned a lot from her. Mostly I learned the hard way, by doing things wrong and having her yell at me. That was often preceded by me wiping tears in the bathroom and going back to my desk. It was that job that motivated me to work hard to get out of it. Now that I don’t work for her anymore, I’ve grown to love her.  I thought that working in fashion would make me so happy but really, you can always be fashionable  you should do a job you love.

Ok work time. Gonna start the book after I get it tonight, looking forward to sharing it. Longer days today too, yahooo!

Watch this vid, it’s lovely. I wanna wear all the dresses in the store.

blog girl gang hang

Invited the girls I’m mentoring from Humber PR over last night for blog chats with me & Breanna. They’re all on Twitter and you can find them here. We had secret blog chats and shared secrets, like a little blog society.

After almost 2 weeks, she could drink b& eat junk food again. YAY!

stop complaining about the raining

You will not hear me complaining about this weather, I love it. Pull out a raincoat, throw on some Moovboots or Wellies and walk right through mud puddles.    I’ve heard people whining about it on Twitter and I don’t get it. I could find a zillion things to do instead of that. Make a fort. Art project. Movie night.  The rain, it’s so refreshing. Wet hair is kinda hot and mascara running down the face is super hot.

Hope your day’s been good. Gramma came out last night. HAHA.
