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 work at a radio station and everyone was freaking out cuz Kelly Cutrone was coming in, and one of the hosts was spending the day with her, etc, etc… and I had no idea who she was.

    I got yelled at.
