Went to the 18th Street Fashion Show here in Kansas City last night as apart of celebrating my darling friend Alicia Solombrino’s birthday. So much fun. The crowd was insane. The fashion was fun. I’d never been to a fashion show before. The weather was perfect & I met so many great people as well as seeing a lot of good friends i hadn’t seen in awhile. It was a great night all around.
I only feel close to people who arouse my energy, who make enormous demands of me, who are capable of enriching me with experience, pain, people who do not doubt my courage, or my toughness.— Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anais Nin, Vol.1: 1931-1934
