Stuff Fashionistas Like Thursday |Not Being Sick

My lovelies, I am gravely ill. I am can only surmise that I either have a cold, the flu, or SARS.

Although I may appear upbeat and happy as I gaily go to work and walk the streets of NYC. Inside, pathogens are slowly shutting down my upper respiratory system and all I really want to do is lie in bed and mentally draft my last will and testament.

However, my fashionable brethren, my frail condition will not stop me from wallowing in self pity on the blogosphere. Since fashion never dies, I would  like to illustrate my sickness with a fashion editorial.

Around Monday I began feeling “off” if you will. So I naturally turned to tea and honey. Tea and honey is the fixer of all ailments from bodily sickness to just plain having a bad day. However, you will see later that tea and honey tragically failed me in my hour of need.

Next, I started sneezing… a lot. Then my nose started running and I started feeling cold all over. The smoke in the photo above is a metaphorical analogy illustrating my very life being sucked out of my body with each violent sneeze.

Then last night everything just got real bad. I started getting horrible aches and pains and my nose got really snotty and gross. Even my eyelashes hurt when I blinked! I took some Advil Severe Cold and Flu but I might as well have eaten two Smarties as the medication did absolutely nothing. I had to return to my old friend tea and honey. Tea and honey redeemed itself slightly by soothing me.

So that is basically what is going on with me today. What is going on with you, lovelies?

    This is the most fashionable cold I’ve ever seen!
    But seriously, I feel for you. I think this nasty bug has been going around here, too, and it took me quite a while to recover from it. But then again, you are younger, prettier and stronger – so I hope in no time you’ll be back to your usual spirits! Get better soon, Clare! xxx

    Oh, this is no fun for you! Hot tea with honey, and a snoozeathon for you!

    Hmm ya know if you’re looking like that if you’re sick, can’t be too bad… haha
    I hope you feel better! I have bronchitis, so I can feel your pain! (though I’m at the end of it) These past weeks I’ve been having this awful cough and this total lack of energy and not until now did I finally go to the doctors.
    And definitely tea is the ultimate panacea!

    Get well soon <3!

  • Reply HauteWorld May 31, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    Awww, so sorry you’re feeling ill! Definitely know that feeling. I generally go for honey and lemon which helps soothe my throat, but it doesn’t really help with congestion. I do appreciate your fashion approach with illustrating your condition via the editorials though!

  • Reply Sierra June 1, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    Hope you are feeling better, it’s no fun feeling ill! Hope that illness goes away soon and that tea and honey make you feel better!

  • Reply Krissy ♥ June 3, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    Aww, I’m sorry to hear you are (were?) sick! I 100% feel your pain as I’m neck deep in snotty tissues right now. (Overshare!) I hope your flu bug has passed!
