Do ALL packs of girlfriends, when convening as a group for the first time in a long time, immediately dispose of bras or bikini tops or any other clothing apparatus that shields ones’ bare breasts? Do they all also immediately dispose of any semblance of sobriety, reaching for Coronas and spiked lemonades and shots of tequila as soon as the hello hugs are out of the way? Do they cancel any and all scheduled dinners or activities that would otherwise require covering up said breasts and/or ceasing to consume vast amounts of alcohol and pot and ciggies in a teepee? Just curious.
we chanted that probably 400 times on saturday after leaving the heavenly stone fox bride! (missed you, nb!) marlyn – – badass bride extraordinaire, who ate a celebratory CHEESESTEAK on the street immediately after purchasing her WEDDING DRESS, and one of my oldest and dearest bffs – – chose a dress at the FIRST place she went and, like, ON THE SPOT. i wish i had cojones like that. anyway, she looked so beautiful, and i am so so so thrilled to have the honor of standing up with her in 158 days as she marries her awesomely funny and sweet dude: mikey. brides: go to stone fox bride! pics of the bride and her entourage, the ethereal, fantastical decor, and AK and karen drunk on sofia cans, below. love you, mar! xx
