I am a true believer in the saying that goes "whatever is meant to be, will be." Although I'd like to think that I make my own destiny -which in fact, I do - I still believe that some things are just written in the stars.
Last week, I trekked all the way from Brooklyn to the West Village after work to buy the Miley Cyrus shirt of my dreams. Since I was in the area (Marc Jacobs land), I decided to drop by Bookmarc to get myself a new iPhone case. The one I currently have looks like it's been battered and dropped in places you do not want to think about. (Don't worry, I haven't dropped it in the potty.)
As I approached the store, I realized that it was set up differently. I thought to myself, "Is there an event tonight? Maybe someone's signing a book." I got closer and when I saw that Alexa Chung's book "It" was stacked up everywhere, my eyes widened and I felt a rush of adrenaline go through my body.
I immediately got a copy and stood in line to have it signed.
Obviously, I wasn't ready for this! I was so happy because I've just been admiring her from afar and may or may not have been stalking her on social media (the answer is most likely YES)... and now, the stars brought us together. I admire her style and how she always looks effortlessly amazing.
"I like the zed in your name.", she said. She also told me she hopes I like her book.
I finished reading it and I definitely recommend it. It's filled with anecdotes, drawings, and beautiful images... also a lot of real life advice. One that resonated with me was how nobody should post fake happy photos to Instagram after a break-up because a fairy dies every time one does it. I didn't have Instagram at the time, but I admit, I have posted fake happy photos to Facebook. To all the fairies that have suffered because of my doing, I am very sorry and I will make it up to all the fairies that are currently living.
Seriously, it's a great read and you guys should go get it.
Alexa is such an awesome person and is the ultimate megababe. When I grow up, I want to be even just half as cool as her.
