Winter clothes are my favorite, but only a select few (roommates, co-workers, since I am a full-time employee now!) have seen my elusive winter wardrobe as I am normally bundled up to my nose with scarves, masked with a long down coat and another scarf just to be safe. It took a while, but the romanticized dreams of a city dancing in snow has faded, and I’m pretty much ready for some warmer weather. Don’t get me wrong, it’s beautiful. But all good things must come to an end. Within 30 minutes of snowfall, blanketed sidewalks become slushy and grey, sprinkled with toxic chemicals to hasten melt time. While I wait for spring, I’m sticking to neutral-toned sweaters that match the blackened, road-stained snow banks that form on the sidewalks.
I haven’t strayed much from the grey and black sweater, black jeans combo. It’s just too damn cold to wear anything but pants and boots. I’ve made a uniform of sorts, and it cuts my getting-ready time in half.
For the record, New York is still kicking my ass, but I’ve definitely grown stronger with it. I’d say we’re just about neck and neck. We’re kind of like a “love-struck,” dysfunctional high school relationship. I’m always running back to him because he’s the hot shot quarterback, but he won’t invite me to hang out with his friends yet because I’m just not cool enough. But he promises he loves me and buys me flowers when I think about ditching him and I take him back reluctantly only because he’s hot.
So basically New York is John Tucker, the epitome of awful high school boyfriends. But who actually wins these battles? Brittany Snow does, and you, because you’re probably not with your high school boyfriend anymore, and New York won’t. Soon he’ll drop the veil of deceit and cave to pressures of my hard-work and tears. So don’t you worry, I’ll whip him (New York, John Tucker?) into shape in due time, I’ve never been one to let someone else call the shots for long.
So I tried to talk fashion, I really did. And then my emotions invaded this precious space and I didn’t even ask them and I can’t really help it. I hope you guys don’t mind. Thanks for listening.
