You know that special person? the one you can always call... the one who loves you more than all your other friends? I'm not talking about a boyfriend or a girlfriend...I'm talking ride or die, your BFF, a partner in crime.
I'm extraordinarily lucky...I have a great group of friends, and I can say the above is true for more than one of them. But, with Valentine's Day approaching, its important to have a plan for feeling HOT on the day when the whole world reminds you how single you are.
Since I was 14, I have been getting into, and through, trouble with my big haired, fiery, flexible and fun BFF Kayleigh M. After meeting in our high school freshman geometry class, it was clearly love at first sight, and though our paths have taken our friendship bi-costal...our connection is RED HOT as ever.
You see, Kayleigh and I have been though it all together. We went to the same high school and the same college, we have been through birthdays, family events, dancing, though love and lust, through coming out...and staying in, good times and bad. Ever since our first year of friendship, we have shared a little tradition. When we are feeling blue, we use our wardrobes as weapons.
In the 9th grade, we invented what we like to call a "Hot Day." Just two best-ies, showing up in the same place at the same time looking FIERCE.
The tradition continued through the years, pulling together signature looks and always implying some kind of blazer, usually sunglasses an a pair of heels.
So this year, for V-day, I will be sharing a HOT DAY with my one of a kind Love-ah, and we will be stomping the streets of NYC and SF in solidarity! Get your ZWD and share a Hot Day with your Love-ah.
Happy V-Day to you and yours.
Kayleigh and Me ca. 2005 taking a nap...fiercely.
