It feels like it should be Friday already, haha.
Know what, though? Yesterday was actually a decent Monday. Crazy and busy? Yes, but far better than the majority of Mondays. A few things that made it lovely:
1. My PERFECT morning latte from the fine folks at Silver Joe’s. Nothing cures the leftover drowsiness from the weekend quite like a scorching hot, frothy vanilla latte from my fave local coffee joint. And the drive-thru attendant Judy is the sweetest lady ever.
2. Highlights! My blonde hair was all shiny and pretty this morning when I woke up all thanks to the magic of bleach and a good, professional styling session yesterday evening. I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I simply LIVE for trips to the salon.
Be blessed, lovelies-
And I got some new shoes. Blam.
So obviously, I became curious...have you guys been seeing a lot of ikat lately?

I'm down for ikat. Will you be?
Angels in heaven burst into song last night when Heidi called his name as the Season 7 winner, I'm quite sure of it. Our little Project Runway watch party also burst into song, or rather squeals and screams, which I'm sure the guys that live below me totally appreciated, ha.
Do you think we were too loud, Dee?
Too loud? No, I don't think we were too loud. Too nerdy? Maybe.
Anyway, our boy Seth Aaron blew Emilio and icky Mila right off the Bryant Park runway...
That's right he did!
Seriously! His collection might have been my favorite of PR finale history. Gushing, I am.
So in case you guys missed it, here are a few of Seth Aaron's brilliant looks from last night's show:
Donna's got love for SA, don't ya Dee?
Um, Seth Aaron was my favorite on the first episode (and yes, I developed a bit of a crush) so I'll admit, I was holding my breath until the end. I thought his whole collection was awesome, but my absolute favorite was the black and white dress.
Agreed. That dress killed.
To be fair though, Emilio did turn out a couple of really impressive pieces, like this one:
...and this one:
And Mila, well, there really is no need to post pics or recap her hot mess of a collection. Just imagine a really badly color-blocked flour sack, paired with the cheapest looking trench coat you could find and, well, there you have it.
Oh and one word. Mohair. Seriously?
No kidding. Nothing says modern comfort like an entire outfit made completely of mohair. Makes me need a Benedryl just thinking about it...
So anyway, Seth Aaron was amazing, Emilio was lukewarm and Mila was just bad. And there you have HHM's very eloquently written summary of the Project Runway finale.
Now, since we are total PR nerds, of course we had to tune in to the Reunion Show that aired after the finale. This whole segment was a hoot because Mr. Anthony himself was there to provide some very quote-worthy commentary. Everything that comes from the "Mouth of the South" is golden.
Oh Anthony! I will miss you most of all! Leslie and I talked about how much fun it would be to hang out with him for a night. I think he should write a book of all his funny quotes and bits of wisdom. From dubbing Mila as “sketchy” to calling out Emilio for taking a “mid-price jab” instead of a cheap jab, Anthony kept me laughing and wondering what he would say next.
He was a breath of fresh air this season, always managing to slice through all the pretentious poo-poo of the workroom.
Well, there you have it. What more shall we say? Can we say? Need we say?
Hey Leslie, since our boy won, this calls for a celebration at some point. Did I hear the words lemon drop martini?
You did. And yes, let the celebrating commence.
Until next week,
Be blessed, lovelies-
