I went to Prada earlier this afternoon and bought this cheeky banana-print shirt I’ve been lusting for months as a special gift to myself.

In life, it’s important to create opportunities for oneself instead of waiting for opportunities to land on your lap. You just have to get out there and chase your dreams and fantasies. Especially if you came from nothing and you have nothing to lose. Today is a magical, surreal day. I can’t, and I won’t, elaborate but let me tell you something… sometimes, all it takes is a short, heartfelt note for dreams to come true in a New York City minute.

Monday could be another very, very magical night. One for the memories. I’m not promising anything but please cross your fingers (and your legs) for me.

In other news, are you excited for the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum? Monday is the opening night gala aka the grand Met Ball.
