Today I was excited to do a “fashion” thing in Massachusetts! I was set to go to a fashion show of area designers presenting their version of a “little black dress”. This was to be held in Berlin, MA, which for you out-of-staters who may not know, is a small rural town quite far from the hub bub of the Boston capital. It was exactly what you’d expect; and drastically different from what my still-New-York mind expected.
Middle aged women gathered in their best chunky two inch heels from the 90’s in the old “Town Hall” in various versions of LBD’s (down to their knees). Their hair; either too short to style or in the sleekest of French Twists.
Enter: Sahra. In a mesh, see through leotard with a tucked in maxi skirt and 4″ platform pumps. God, I did not belong.
Okay, Okay. There was a good part. The woman who’s dress I went to see was actually spectacular. It was on-trend with a sheer top, low cut sheer back, and fringed trim. Something I would definitely wear and could actually see people in the real world of cities wearing out to a party (to Le Bain maybe?). Sonia, and her line Passion, are exceptional. And the goodie bags were adorable and smelt so great! Sonia and Passion are exceptionally professional and I can’t wait to see her expand and hopefully come to NYC!
Anyway, I’m clearly out of place here. I hung out with my future NYC roommate last night and all we did was reminisce about The City and plan our future apartment. August can’t come soon enough for the both of us.

If you’ve been following for awhile you may remember that my paternal grandmother passed away this past July. While in Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving it was time to go through more of her belongings and determine who would inherit what.
The jewelry was beautiful; classic cameo pieces to pearls, to pounds of costume jewelry and an impressive collection of clip on and (the even older) screw on earrings. Not many of you may know but I have gauged ears (size 2) and it makes it impossible to wear normal stud earrings in my first hole and gives absolutely no purpose to clip on and screw on earrings for me. None the less, I took a few inspiring pairs that I’d like to find something creative to do with.
I kept the Cameo and the Elephants for myself; she had quite the pin collection as well, which you can see, and a number of butterflies, which is my Aunt’s favorite.
