So much to love about the new Bowie vid: Pastel eyeliner, that Sander coat, young Ziggy look-a-like, yellow bouclé, androgyny, blonde hair/black eyebrows, self-slapping frenzy, David aging like a fine wine, that Lanvin visor, and of course...Tilda.

Had my heart set on acquiring a top hat. Found one online. Talked myself out of it. Saw Spielberg's "Lincoln". Talked myself into it. Too late. Online top hat sold out. Kicked myself. Two weeks later, kicked myself again and curiosity took over, needed to see sold out online top hat once more. There she was. Back on the market. Purchased said top hat. Immediately suffered from buyer's remorse, "What the heck am I going to do with a top hat????"
Remembered that every great woman in history has donned the top hat.
Fulfilled with true sartorial satisfaction.

So nice to be able to pull my sweetheart away from his work-till-six-am workdays for an hour of free ballet demos, "The Balanchine Ballerina". There were excerpts from the Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and others I can't recall*, but my favorite was Western Symphony. Mike's still analyzing to determine his fave. Sometimes I feel sorry for our future children, being software engineering ballet dancers will be a hard life, no doubt.
And this post would not be complete without mentioning the winter weather day perfection - cold enough to bundle up and stay comfortable lounging by the Lincoln Center plaza fountain.
*Update: Found this so the others included Allegro Brillante, Mozartiana, Symphony in C, and Tchaikovsky Suite No. 3. Also, it wasn't an excerpt from the Swan Lake ballet, but an excerpt from Balanchine's Tchaikovsky Pas de Duex choreographed to long-forgotten Swan Lake music.
