The Coolest part of living in NYC is that there is SUCH an abyss of cool random things happening at all times. This doens't mean you'll be INTERSTED in all of these 'cool findings' but sometimes there's a gem in the rough that even if you have not a clue EXACTLY what it is, you pay and go anyway! ;)
Last night was one of these things. Boy sent me an email last Friday saying 'it sounds kind of fashion-y, but i think you'd like this.' The deception of the event said -
"Heidi Julavits (The Believer) and Leanne Shapton (Swimming Studies) introduce readings of stories that explore how women present themselves and what style means in celebration of their new anthology of conversations, surveys, and drawings collected from 639 women - artists, actors, musicians, authors, and perfect strangers - from around the world. Performers include Molly Ringwald, Zosia Mamet (Girls), Sonia Manzano (Sesame Street; Love, Loss, and What I Wore), Justin Vivian Bond, and Jennifer Lim (Chinglish)."

I saw Molly's Ringwald's name and thought "Sold!" I couldn't have survived my teen-hood without Molly. My friend Margot came along, and even as we sat there during the introduction and STILL didn't know exactly what this event was, we both had a good time. :)
A handful of lovely folks read [verbally acted out?] women's short stories from "Women In Clothes" Some stories made you crack up, and some stories still haunt me today.. all based around the relationship we have with clothes, why we choose to wear what we do, and how we feel when we wear clothes.. or don't wear clothes.
It was quite interesting, and it reminds me that sometimes fun things will just find YOU, and you gotta just jump in and hopefully you'll enjoy it! ;)
