This week I am doing the audio recording for UNTRUE 💓💓💓💓💓#untruethebook !! I love doing audio. It is a weird experience: you go into a little soundproofed room and it’s just you and your words and the sound engineers all day long. It’s a parallel universe of concentration very different from the kind required by writing. You’re telling a story, but it’s one you’ve already written. You’re alone, but imagining all your listeners and hoping they will like what they hear. If you’re me, you wear sweatpants and no bra, so you can breathe. This is my husband’s giant t shirt. Oh, and props to every singer and actor out there. Boy it’s hard to work your instrument. ✊ Respect! #BTS #authors #authorsofig #authorsofinstagram #writers #writersofig #writersofinstagram #books #bookstagram #momofboys #work #nyc #writerslife
These are #katespade shoes. Where to start? Kate Spade came from Kansas City. She saw. She took the measure of us. She conquered. She did it by being herself and taking risks. She left a steady job and established an empire. She channeled the aspirations of young women across the country, and twisted femininity into a playful, quirky, and ironic field of play rather than an oppressive, punitive code we could never better or fit into. There was something retro and nostalgic and fun about her vision of #beingfemale that made women buy in big. Eventually she sold sheets, stationery, books, dinnerware, towels, and cocktail shakers—that is, just about everything. But she was really selling Kate Spade-ness, an amalgam of high and low that was accessible in its price point and ethos, but aspirational too, because she curated well while she was in charge of her own brand, and who doesn’t like zany, privileged, ironic, feminine fun? Few women have scaled the heights of the punitive-to-women niche of #fashion as she did. Part of me wonders what Kate’s suicide had to do with no longer having control of the Kate Spade brand (she and her husband sold it over ten years ago), being overwhelmed by a new venture, aging, and depression, a disease that afflicts women twice as often as men. Her aesthetic kind of paved the way for Wes Anderson, didn’t it? What a loss.
