How great it is to take a break and people watch, sipping bitter coffee and putting my kicks up! Today I walked 88 blocks. And designed 88 dresses in my head. Everything is inspiring here. Everything. Every single thing. Even the wet pavement in the summer humidity and rain. Even the manhole covers and rats. Even the guy playing guitar on the subway- warm Gibson. Even the lady on the Upper East Side with coiffed hair who said, “Beauty is something you hold”.
