My Style To-Do List

Instead of reading a Government draft RFP or preparing something horrendous like a compliance matrix like a responsible adult - or even instead of sleeping, which my body desperately needed to do - I used the 2 flights here to Lawton, OK, to read the entire October issue of American Vogue. Cover to cover. I devoured both the inane (Hamish Bowles does X Factor) and the intelligent (Hamish Bowles does X Factor), marked pages, and then borrowed a pen from a nice gentlemen across the aisle and scribbled a list of everything that had popped into my head while reading.

  • Does it count that I "followed" Vogue Germany and British Vogue on twitter? Order multiple Vogue subscriptions
  • design and order calling cards
  • buy very-nice-but-ok-to-lose pens
  • get new, impossibly hip glasses and/or
  • get lasik appointment
  • change all future vacation references to "holiday"
  • figure out how to collaborate on a style post about warheads (Scott, if you've read this far, I'm sure I can find a prize for you of some kind)
  • Listen to Robin Givhan NPR archive broadcast (thanks, Wardrobe Oxygen!)
  • Check! Headed up August 3-5! Plan trip with Mommy & The Bean (the 2 Elsas) to see Schiaparelli/Prada exhibit at the Met

  • Check! start a Christmas list (for the first time in, oh, 25 years)
  • It's just not worth it. Too many good, cheaper things out there. look into La Mer
  • Check! On it's way! With the new bug repellent! order Skincando Miracle Cream
  • Check! #healthyme is in full swing! Sort-of check. I did it once. Skipped DRESSED viewing Thursday for yoga class - do yoga and/or calissthenics tomorrow (each day will be a new resolution for the next)

Well, there are some subtle aspects to warhead design. While simplicity is always appreciated, I find a few lethality enhancing features really juice up the design...8)

I love British Vogue.

Anonymous, you'd better get writing. Or at least clipping pics of pretty warheads.

Miss Scarlet, I'm really tempted to do multiple versions. I'd be remiss if I didn't do German, and, well, British and Italian are, um, necessary.

I would be so lost without to-do lists! Nice to meet a fellow blogger in my area!
