Why Don’t You? An Ode To Madame Vreeland.

 

Why don’t you..paint a map of the world on all four walls of your boys’ nursery so they won’t grow up with a provincial point of view?Diana Vreeland

Diana Vreeland changed the face of fashion and she changed the minds of woman all over the world.

Her Harper’s Bazaar column in the 1930’s had the women of that day inspired to think outside the mundane. I love her. As an ode to DV I made up my own ‘why don’t yous’ and inspire you to do something different.. today and always…

So… Why don’t you….

…Stop watching TV for a week.

…Send an ‘eat your heart out’ pic to your ex with only the words “just saying hi” and when he calls or texts, don’t respond.

…Only listen to music from the 40’s for a spell.

…Acknowledge that your mom did the very best she could then call and thank her.

…Step it waay up at work and then… Ask for a raise.

…Take a trip to Paris with a girlfriend and when you get there make a new “friend”.

…Masturbate.

…Learn a new language.

…go on a vintage only shopping trip and buy something fabulous.

…Wear red today.

…Kiss a beauttiful stranger

Why don’t you?
