Dying is Fine

A.Wang tank, F21 bra and skirt, Gucci booties

Longest no posting EVAR!

I don't have any good reason for it either. Haven't been busy. Haven't been "uninspired." Just good ole ... lazy. So playing catchup:

1. New readers!
Thanks for all the comments from current and NEW readers. SO NICE! I'm terrible at responding (so LAZY) but I DO read every comment and then proceed to look at your page and reverse-stalk you. I SEE YOU.

2. Chicago
I'm going to Chicago this weekend. Never been there before and would love some recommendations for places to eat, SHOP, and party. We already made reservations for Alinea, which I'm looking very forward to, especially since it beat French Laundry on the World's Best Restaurants list. Molecular gastronomy, here I come!

I'm now supposed to answer a series of questions. I WILL DO IT. JUST LATER. =)

EDIT:  4.  Kreative Blogger Award from Grace Like Kelly
Totally missed this the first time around, but thank you to Grace Like Kelley for the award!  She is so so sweet - just look at that huge smile on her face in her photos!

5. Tag and Award from Life in Travel
Who doesn't love Hanh, her cute kids, and amazing shoe collection? Thanks, Hanh!
Now I'm supposed to list 10 interesting things about myself.

  1. My fiance and I first met when we were 12 years old, but we didn't date each other until 13 years later. I remember seeing him at his locker in middle school (AWWW).

  2. I have an aversion to people that laugh "HEE HEE" or "KEKEKE" online. I'd probably like it if they laughed that way in real life though.

  3. When I watch my TV shows, I have to eat things. Last week, it was Phillipine dried mangos and Goober w/ a spoon straight out of the jar (not together, but on separate occasions). The food has to be something you can eat w/o taking your eyes off the TV and it can't be too noisy (like chips) b/c you can't hear the TV since you can hear the crunching in your head.

  4. I'm currently obsessed with True Blood. I love Eric. Um, sexy viking vampire? What's not to like?

  5. I'm classically trained in ballet and piano.

  6. I hang all my clothes on hangers because I don't like folding laundry.

  7. I talked on the phone for a couple months w/ the bass player from Hoobastank after meeting him after a concert. So completely random. HI MARKKU.

  8. I wish I was doing something creative as a career.

  9. I like funny people.

  10. I can list all the presidents of the US in order, from Washington to Obama.

  1. Hey
    had so much fun reading the interesting facts about you.
    love the purple skirt and the booties are fierce.
    have great day.

  2. kekeke! =P

  3. Yay! You're coming to my hood! If you want to shop definitely check out Bucktown/Wicker Park. Specifically at the Milwaukee/Damen/North intersection and also Division between Western and Milwaukee. Lincoln Park on Armitage and Halsted is great, but so is the Old Town area on Wells, as well as the Gold Coast area where we just opened up the renovated Barneys. If you need more suggestions feel free to shoot me an email (fashiontherapist@gmail.com)

  4. I like Chicago, take the bus if you really wanna get around. Buy the All day pass instead of paying for each trip. =) I learned the hard way. hahaha...

    My bf and I knew each other since we were in middle school, but didn't date til after college. How weird huh?

  5. You're going to have so much fun at Alinea. The service and food is unbelievable; from beginning to end. Nick Kokonas actually emailed us about our blog posts on Alinea.

    So excited for you! It's such a great experience. Make sure you pick up THE cookbook. Signed copies are only available at the restaurant.

  6. Glad to have you back! Thats interesting about you and your fiance. Goes to show that the love of your life could be right in front of you all along.

    I really like the skirt. Its interesting how its high waisted and the purple is pretty!

  7. Love the outfit in this post. You're dressed impeccably as always. :) And I think it's really cute that you and your husband have known/dated/been in a relationship for so long!

  8. hooray you're back!
    love the purple skirt.

  9. that last one is quite an impressive talent. i don't think i even know half the names of the presidents, much less put them in order.

    love the boots!

  10. those booties! adorable!

  11. Yes!!! A post!! You're alive!!! You can do it, shoo away those lazy vibes. The world needs you to post an entry every now and then.

    Happy Eating!

  13. Ditto on the Alinea post! Would love to read about your experience since Chef Achatz has been working on new dishes.

  15. This is further evidence in our parallel lives hypothesis. Of course. Remind me to tell you why.

  16. the high waisted skirt looks great on you, and your hair = awesomeness :)

  17. It's fun to read and know more about you.
    I love to eat something when I watch tv too.

    you look hot in the sexy top and color of your skirt is so sweet.

  18. LOVE LOVE the booties!!

  19. I asked my coworker who is from Chicago, and here's what he recommended:












  20. OMG I am totally obsessed with True Blood too! I just started reading the Sookie Stackhouse books and I'm addicted to those as well. I don't want to spoil it for you so I'm not going to say anything but you get to see more of Eric's character in the books. The books made me see a whole different side of him and I actually like him now even though I really hated him at first. On the other hand - I looove Bill too so now I'm torn!

  21. in love with that skirt.
    more in love with your hair though - COVET ♥

  22. hottest booties ever! lovin' the whole package.
