NYFWeir: End of the WerqWeek!

Wow. What an amazing week we've had. The glamour! The sparkle! The heady, excited confusion! And that was just the line outside Louboutin World for Fashion's Night Out....

So, as we say goodbye to yet another Fashion Week in which pretty much everyone who met Johnny was completely dazzled by him, here's a look back at the week that was via these Top Ten Moments of NYFW SS 2012...

Tuesday, 09/13/2011. Indashio.

You know, sometimes my life as a blogger is actually pretty interesting. Yesterday morning I checked my email to find a note from Ciara Batory, PR Specialist with the Moscow Ballet (I am not making this up). She attached these two photos from Indashio's show with this all-caps note: "MOSCOW BALLET’S GREAT RUSSIAN NUTCRACKER’S KISSY DOLL MODEL AND JOHNNY WEIR AT INDASHIO’S NYFW SHOW AT THE AUDI FORUM!! MOSCOW BALLET LOVES JOHNNY WEIR AS MUCH AS YOU DO. HE IS SO SWEET AND HUMBLE. PLEASE PUT THIS PHOTO ON YOUR BLOG!!!"

So I wrote her back immediately and said yes! Of course! And could I please quote her? And she said yes. :)

This lovely dancer is Sydney Keyes. 
You can find out more about her and the Moscow Ballet 
on their Facebook page.

Wednesday, 09/14/2011. The Blonds.

Absolutely my number-one favorite moment to come out of this Fashion Week. Johnny in the front row at The Blonds. From Wire Image.

To be yourself 
in a world that is constantly trying 
to make you something else 
is the greatest accomplishment.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson

Programming note: The blog is going on hiatus 
for a week or so because ... I'm moving! 
Which is an activity on my list of "Things I Heart" 
that ranks just below pulling out all my fingernails one by one 
and stabbing myself repeatedly in the eye with an ice pick. 
But with any luck at all, I'll survive, 
and I might even be able to resume blogging 
with reports from Fashion On Ice, 
which is happening next Saturday in Chicagoland...

Alert! Please vote for Melissa Gregory and Denis Petukhov's 
"Fever On Ice" to win a $12,000 grant 
from US Olympics / Team USA!! 
You can vote once a day until this Sunday, September 18
Voting is only via Facebook, which is kind of a hassle 
because you have to let the app accces your info yada yada yada, 
but it's so worth it for this wonderful program! 
Please vote! And keep voting!

And please vote for Johnny too!! 
He's up for two honors at the moment:
Vote for him as "Ab Fab" in Logo's poll, 
and vote for him as "Best Dressed" in Out Magazine!

Q and A returns!! Go read it now!

Still tix available!
Or see the ITNY website for more info!

More new stuff on Johnny's website!
He'll be attending Macy's Glamorama Los Angeles

Johnny tweeted recently:
"Buy my single,'Dirty Love' via iTunes.
Tell all your friends to as well. The more copies sold
takes me one step closer to making a video! №1!"

Nefertiti, certain Greek/Roman/Renaissance statues, and Johnny. He's mad, bad, and beautiful, but okay to know.

Thank you for all the lovely coverage this week! The best of the best always seems to appear on your blog.

Extra thanks for finding the time during a move!! Ugh, I hate packing/moving/unpacking. I hope it goes smoothly for you, you have lots of muscle-y help, and you and the kids love your new home.

Many xoxo, Bink!!

Wait, I just mentally computed the sentence about your blog being on hiatus for a week. What am I going to read every morning??? ...Too bad that it isn't because you'll be on vacation in the Maldives...

That incredible photograph makes me feel religious.

This was a whole lot of happy.

I will think "uplifting" thoughts as you move (in case you have to lift things)and pine for your fjords until you return. :O(

Ugh... I hate moving! Last time we paid my two nephews and one of their girlfriends to do most of the heavy lifting for us. We were able to move smaller things, but the TV and so one I wouldn't have been able to manage.

That picture, which I hadn't seen, from the blonds show...well I don't even have the words! It's beautiful! Thanks again for the great blog and the hilarious captions on the photos!
