Two mentors have forced me, thankfully, to reconsider what the fuck I’m doing (or, really, not doing enough of).
Be thankful you’re not the woman melting down and aggressively cutting everyone in the security line–but know that that woman totally exists inside of you. And more gems, after the jump!
“If you want to maintain some level of not-being-a-fucking-loser, best not to admit how often “Fuck with me you know I got it” plays in your head. Except right now, right now it’s okay.” And more gems, after le jump!
We are constantly letting the fear of seeming too into anything (especially those people we like to see naked) turn us into overly anxious, over-analytical people.
“I always say that if you can’t get inspired in New York, you can’t get inspired anywhere.” Rebecca Taylor is one of the few designers who manages to tap into my girlier proclivities, and one who succeeds at designing for every shade and shape of woman. I jumped at the opportunity to pick her brain, and, not surprisingly, she’s as cool as I expected.
“That’s life,” my dad said, referring to the dance of ups and downs that we all endure, adding the proper metaphor, “If you didn’t have hangovers, you’d want to be drunk all the time.” Some advice courtesy of my good old Dad, he of epic assertive(and-knowing-what-the-fuck-he-wants)ness.
“Maybe I have a lack of imagination when it comes to my own life, but I found just about everything in my twenties to be surprising. My career has been so much more fulfilling and exciting than I would have ever imagined.” Picking the brain of fashion-force-to-be-reckoned-with, Hillary Kerr, cofounder of Who What Wear, on what she learned throughout her twenties, the advice she has for us newbies, and how she would spend an ideal day in LA!
Why friends who get pumped up by things that you initially could care less about are–in my book (see: that of Jess, rather than Job)–the best friends to surround yourself with.
What do Jack Kerouac, sunshine, shades, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s have in common? Not much, until Warby Parker brought them all together and won over my little heart.
