01.19.12: There beneath the blue suburban skies I sit, and meanwhile back……
It was bright blue skies as my friend from work, Kate and I strolled to grab lunch at Organic Avenue in the West Village..
We were speaking enthusiastically of our office party at The Standard that was going to be happening that night when we passed this mural and knowing how much I adore Kate’s new mod inspired coat: had to snap this photo.
Shimmy, shimmy all night long now,
Shimmy, shimmy the whole day through now,
Shimmy, shimmy the whole night too,
I can shimmy, yeah, whoa! Come on! Whoa!….
My office party was held on top of The Standard Hotel in the West Village of Manhattan, a beautiful and pleasant venue overlooking Manhattan’s Skyline.
Now, you all want to see my dress, don’t you? You know the one I was ecstatic about- my dream dress? Let me start off by mentioning that it is a beautiful chiffon dress from the 50s that my friend had given to me from her own personal collection….I knew this was the one:
My tiara is a sentimental piece of adorned jewelery…
I noticed that several of my other friends also went mod for this occasion or just looked magnificent…
My friend Nick showed up looking quite dapper and mod!
The night was a great success as we all celebrated our 10th Anniversary and danced, spun and partied into the night. We looked out at the view, thinking of where our lives are right now and all came to the conclusion that we are happy right then, with our friends on top of the cities lights.
I felt like a whimsical fairy twirling away on the dance floor…
Till next time.
