sorry for the long gap between posts...that flu we caught was a DOOZY. poppy got over hers and then promptly got an ear infection, and mine turned into a nasty bout of sinusitis which had me feeling feverish for 5 out of 7 days last week. so awful. thankfully, we're both now on the mend.


despite the funk that had me feeling less than fine, i forced myself to come out of my hidey-hole for a couple hours to attend the independent fashion bloggers dress up soiree during fashion week...i was a panelist at the event, speaking a little about w_r and things related. 300 people were in attendance (!!!), and my speaking compatriots included susie bubble, crosby of pr couture, and jessica of what i wore, amongst many others. thanks to all who came up to me and said hi after the panel was over. a big giant public thanks goes out to jennine of the coveted/ifb for inviting me to participate. it was a big honor and i was humbled to have been recognized for my contributions to fashion blogging and for creating w_r and whatnot. so very cool. you can see photos from the event here.


in other big personal news, i'll be leaving NYC temporarily (until the end of the year or just a little past) little fam will be living in chicago for a while, while pete trains at his new job. then it's back to the NYC area, hopefully permanently. *crosses fingers and toes*
i'll miss you, NYC! but i've never been to chicago...i'm kinda looking forward to the change and the adventure of exploring the city on what's basically going to amount to a long vacation. should be interesting!
anyone care to offer suggestions on things i must check out in chicago? restaurants? museums? shops? i'd love to hear your suggestions concerning the craft/fabric/yarn/thrift store scene if you got 'em! thanks so much!!
