Have y'all ever logged into old email addresses that you haven't logged into for years and all of a sudden you see a series of emails that you wished you would have seen earlier? This recently happened to me. I was late to the gmail train, but I also have tendency to overcompensate for my lateness by creating multiple gmail email accounts... (i.e., missfirstnamelastname- used for nothing, cocoloves(blankcity)- used for boyfriends, (city)coco- used for travel, lastnamemiddleinitialfirstname- used for everything, (firstname)moves- used only for my apartment hunt; you get the drift).
Just recently I logged into one of my disguise emails accounts that I must have used a lot to talk to my friends on g-chat when I used to work at one of my office 9-5 jobs. I can't really remember which one, I just remember talking to my friends on g-chat about where we were going to get tacos and margarita's that evening, which was the highlight of my day. I recently missed an email from my friend Winter telling me about a pair of Chanel sneakers that were for sale, an email from an old girlfriend telling me to go to some garden party to take chic photos for my blog (this was the during the first month that I launched Coco Zaza and right before I moved to Paris and was still living in NYC), an email from some award that I won, where if I claimed it by a certain date, I would have been up $2k; whether this is true or not is still suspect, but I like to believe that I lost out... $2K BIG... and then there was the email from an ex-boyfriend laying out his feelings in a series of worded text... yep, I missed all of them.
Well, what can I say? I don't check this email? Anyone that really knows me, knows that I only use two emails? Anyone that really knows me is already on my g-chat, or one of those two emails? But then I got to thinking, what if they had this email auto-programed into their email and they actually just typed my name and this was the sorry email address that happened to come up, instead of the two email addresses that I actually use.
I'm always under the assumption that if something is really that important, someone will pick up the phone and call me, or rather, they will send me a follow-up note, text me, Whatsapp me, Skype me, or even downright hunt me down, pin me in a room and speak to me like normal people do. Then I think about those times that I actually hide behind my email. I like to write and I like to write out my feelings; it helps me process things in a different way- a clearer way, a more logical way and frankly, who wants to send a follow-up email to an email that has already said so much?! Who also says things they don't mean? Sadly, I think I do that more than I'd like to admit, but that's just stupid and I need to work on this.
How great are these pants? They are fantastic. Princess Irene Galitzine of Russia popularized her version of the Palazzo Pant in the 1960s. Traditionally, these pants were wide-legged trousers made of silk or sturdy tapestry fabrics that were embellished with different types of embroidery and jewels, but her version of the pant were slim, flowing and graphic. I sometimes like to wear interesting things in the winter since it's so cold and generally bland color combinations (black, black and more black; maybe grey, but mostly black). This sweater was one that I grabbed on my latest trip to London and I think it's awesome.
