New York Fashion Week: Men's

The Dowager Duchess had a much better day today. We've opted for the non-surgical approach to repair her back. In three weeks or so, if there's not enough improvement, we can reevaluate the surgical options. She already has a back brace for when she's out of bed (which can't come too soon) and she'll begin physical therapy tomorrow (Thursday). They'll now work on managing and alleviating the pain to enable her to more easily do her physical therapy. She was upbeat this afternoon and looking forward to getting to work.

San Geraldo suggested this morning that we stay another month — which is why I call him "San" Geraldo. Besides, I'm sure everyone who lives on the Costa del Sol would prefer to summer in Coney Island. (Click the images... you know why.)

I SUPPOSE THERE ARE WORSE PLACES TO SPEND ONE'S SUMMER.

Walking back from the hospital this afternoon I noticed a large advertisement on an Ocean Parkway bus stop. It was promoting "New York Fashion Week: Men's."

According to the ad, fashion "week" runs from 13 July through 16 July. That sounds more like "New York Fashion Four Days: Men's" to me, but it's been a very long time since I lived here. It's a fast-paced city. Maybe seven days only take four.

I was relieved I hadn't completely missed Fashion Week (: Men's). I've been monitoring local fashion trends since our arrival.

  3. I think Spain has followed along with you & San Geraldo to NYC. Plaid is contagious, so BEWARE!
    All the best to DD and take one day at a time.

  4. Think how freeing it must be to throw style to the wind like that! But, yikes, my eyes hurt.

    Hope the non-surgical approach does the trick for DD. Glad she is feeling better.

  12. At first I thought those pink socks were a horrible sun burn. I think I have a pair of jammies just like that guy, but somehow I'm missing the contrasting top. Glad to hear your Mother is doing better... hope it steadily continues.
