Update: my amazing best friend has a bunch of points because she travels for work. She used them to get me a room at the double tree nearby. I’ll have to take a shuttle to the airport tomorrow and then another shuttle from the airport to the double tree (I could maybe Uber if the weather isn’t shit? Idk what Philly is expecting to get but the shuttles are running. And shuttles are free). But she’s saving me literally at least a hundred dollars. Talk about A1Day1
I’m still frustrated that I paid for a 5 day trip to Providence and I’m gonna only have 2 days there now since I’m stuck in Philly until Wednesday night. With the same clothes since the fucking pilot checked my bag on a whim (trust. If he hadn’t walked by me I would have been fine as the bag was already okayed and the flight wasn’t full. It’s a jet so I’m used to valet checking the carry on. But nope, fucker sent it to Providence). My biggest issue is that my skin isn’t really irritated and I gave no good lotion. My biggest issue tomorrow will be different and will be along the lines of having no deodorant or new underwear (thank you Caribbean family upbringing, as I have no qualms or confusions about how to handwash my delicates so I guess I’ll do that and go commando while they dry 😧) but for now I wish I had my cocoa butter.
And having to stay in hotels is gonna cost me more. Because now I’m paying for (overpriced) food whereas in Providence while I would have bought a couple meals I would mostly be eating at home.
It’s “Lift off” for Rag & Bone’s ideal handbag collection:
The Rag & Bone “it” bag has been revealed in the June 2012 issue of Vogue and it's utilitarian as well as Boho chic. The satchel is dubbed the “pilot bag” because it was inspired by the bags used to hold helmets by air force pilots. But instead of heavy duty nylon the Rag & Bone interpretation is made from superluxe Italian Vachetta and calf leathers, tactile English tapestries and striped melton blanket fabric with the brand’s signature military grade hardware with steel trimmings made by a factory that produces D-rings for the U.S. military. This bag is perfect for the Boho-cool chick kicking butt one fashion victory at a time.
The “Pilot bag” is strong and beautiful just like the women who will carry it around with them…
If Rosie the riveter was a fashionista, she might tote the Rag & Bone “Pilot” bag..
The night before I was supposed to fly out to L.A [to film the pilot],. my bag got stolen and I had to go to the police precinct. And then when I got to our set, I was just really amazed. The attention to detail—down to nicks in the wood of the gate in the office—was the kind of stuff I had just seen at the real NYPD precinct. I guess it was a good thing that my bag got stolen; it didn’t feel so great when I was at a police precinct at 7 A.M., but it was actually really cool research.
