Bring On the Smiles! Skip the Normal Part of Life– Bring on LAFW!! LA STORY Brings You a Bit of PRE-LAFW Humor– Because WE NEED It! LA Story "Are We There Yet?" Blog and Video
Yes my darlings, it’s that time of year again. Now that the award shows are pretty much over (though I know I owe you about 4-5 more podcasts and at least 6 blogs on Oscars. YES, I know I am late but I promise that I will get them done.)
We now have LAFW upon us. While you have seen all the hoopla from London, Milan, Paris and NYC.. nothing quite compares with LAFW– for sure insanity because who else would put think about putting a tee shirt line down the catwalk– not once but THREE times. Sigh….. We shall save that rant for another blog because it was a real doozy of one about 6 AM (and if you know me, you know I really am up at that time.)
We have much to share and we will bring you the most succinct coverage on a blog set up just for the FW coverage courtesy of our beloved editor in chief who listens to us bitch, whine and moan, the ever patient, Lesley Scott whom we love and adore and toast with a couple of cocktails (or three or four).
Anyway, please enjoy this theatrical interlude before we immerse you in the lunacy of LAFW, Oscar wrap ups and realize that we my darlings are going to stop taking life so darn seriously. After what we saw pre LAFW in the hoopla of brands participating and then vanishing from the schedule of LAFW and the rollercoaster ride of not knowing if we are going to be allowed into LAFW because of the cuts made by IMG and Smashbox to the space–well, we are in serious need of levity.. but then I digress.
We need a vacation!! We need to go to Kauai or Key West or someplace WARM with lots of tall icy glasses tinkling with ice and sporting charming little umbrellas or cute little swizzle sticks done as flamingos and us wearing as little as possible in the way of swimwear.
So sit back and share with us this respite of filmatic composition that should be nominated for best short film for the next Oscars. If they want to redo it, I will audition for the part of the little girl.
Look for a sassier, less serious take on life and more serious about things that are important– like chocolate, great drinks, adorable charming men, and fabulous clothing–as well as that perfect___________ (you fill in the blank with your item of choice– be it fashion, beauty, food, beverage, cinematic or audiofile/phile). Thank you to the "Goodbye to the Normals" because we are normal no longer- not that we were in the first place.
