connie 's Thoughts:

The first picture is of me, happy, stress-free, with good hair and a clear head standing in a well-lit, people-free area. Ah, bliss!

The second picture? Imagine 12 hours of straight shows, thirty pounds of shit to haul, blistered feet, an empty stomach, and in the middle of Times Square. So, excuse the haggardness of my look, but it was SUCH a long day.

(I’m also carrying a swag bag from Ben Cho, My Alex Wang purse, a Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony tote and wearing my friend’s vintage belt)

PS: the dress was such a wonderful purchase—I’ve got editors and buyers coming up to me to ask where I got it. You should see their jaws drop when I tell them it was from Target :)

My second picture feels ugly :( She's going to go and watch Ghostworld and eat a tub of ice cream now. My first picture, on the other hand, is loving the attention!

I'm fairly petite and usually wear a 0-2 dress size, and the dress fit me like a glove (size 2).
