Imagine you break the Sears Tower off at the base, right where it touches the ground, and you hollow out the insides, and you seal all windows, entrances, and exits good and tight. And every week, pick a day, any day of the week you like, you dip the Sears Tower into Lake Michigan, and you fill it up, and you dump it…well, into thin air. It just evaporates. No one ever uses it, no one ever sees it again. And then you dip the Sears Tower in again, and pull out just under another third of a Sears Tower, and that water disappears too.
That’s what happened, last year. That’s what we lost: more than 67 Sears Towers’ worth of water.
It’s not the first thing Chicago’s lost a lot of, and it won’t be the last.
But it sure makes a good story.
And a lot of thirsty people.
Sorry about the lateness! (See below for part of what took so long.) Here are my top 5(6) shows from NYFW:
1. Prabal Gurung: No, this is how you rock a peplum.
2. Marc Jacobs: Pants? What pants? Who needs pants?
2. 3.1 Phillip Lim: Saltwater taffy goes hyper-chic.
3. Narciso Rodriguez: The art of mindful tailoring.
4. Nichloas K: If you like it, then you put another layer on it.
5. Ralph Lauren: Russian imperialism appropriated by America, re-appropriated by Russia, re-appropriated by America.

Well, to be perfectly honest, I got a job. Of the full-time variety. And between preparing for interviews, stressing about interviews, and just general life-changing madness, I am way behind on my blogging. Alas. But in the meantime, as I catch up, I hope you get to re-discover some of your favorite moments from last fashion month :-)
