Me and McQueen

9 Jun

I’m going to New York. “Why?”, asked nobody ever. Because I need to see the Alexander McQueen show at the Met. I’m sticking with need on this one. From the first article I read about the show opening this past May, I wanted to go. I really wanted to go. But of course it is mildly unreasonable for a full time working and schooling girl to pick up and go to New York just to spend the afternoon in the Met. Then a friend’s mom mentioned seeing the show and how moving it was and my heart stopped. I would regret it forever if I didn’t see it myself. One more good excuse was handed to me and I bought the ticket. I felt pretty nervous because I’m sure I forgot about something I’m going to miss, but I just re-read the beginning of this article and the tears that came when I saw this gold duck feather jacket made me confident. I will not regret this.

    I’m excited for you, but next time we should really coordinate our NYC trips better.
