The Scoop

Sometimes it’s just about rebuilding from the ground up, which seems easy when you’re decked out in Alexander Wang. I scored this amazing outfit for the grand opening party of Scoop NYC Bal Harbour. The opening fete was a blast. It was great catching up with friends. Plus, the collection is drool-worthy. The Helmut Lang leather leggings are sick, sick, sick. And this skirt. Oh, this skirt. I will wear it until I die. Mr. Wang, you’ve outdone yourself with this one. These are the pieces you build a wardrobe out of.

And speaking of building, let’s get back to my opening statement about rebuilding. Sometimes, when you least expect it, life gives you a do-over. It’s your opportunity to take everything you didn’t like about your past and change it. Don’t like you hair? Grow it out. Don’t like your job? Get a new one. Yeah, it’s hard to start over, especially when you have a tendency to get set in your way (hi, that would be me). But really, at the end of the day, the only person stopping you is you. And the possibilities out there are endless. Boundless. Limitless. Unless you’re the one placing limits on them. Whether your do-over is your own doing or one the universe throws at you, make the most of it. I know I am.
