Hey you were the only colourful person there - they must have felt so dull!

Bravo! You were the only one with color and individuality. Truth is, I don't envy them, either. Love all the money on the floor, great statement!

You cannot do better than to live (and to dress)in the light of "truth". I am impressed!
I take it from the green (money) around your ankles, that the auction/fundraiser on which you had worked so hard was a success too!

I am very uncomfortable in those situations but glad that they (the wealthy) are there to enable us to keep things like your museum afloat.
I've found that it matters very little what I wear...they are so involved with one-upping each other that they don't even notice me...so I usually stick to my great "finds" from the Thrift stores.

I am glad you stuck to your truth.

I wrote out this long comment and then erased it because my concepts aren't complete yet (and it is difficult to focus when Maggie keeps asking to see Tinker Bell on the computer...I guess Sean showed her something on the computer last night, but I don't know what)

Beautiful illustrations!

Love to you!
XO,
Melba

You looked lovely! Good for you for staying with your truth! I don't envy the wealthy either. I like me, the way I am! And I'm proud of you for being yourself!!

What an honest post Caroline. I can relate to this very much. I hope you liked the outfit you bought and I'm sure you looked great!

A perfect conclusion to your benefit auction-saga!

Excellent! Out of that crowd, you would most definitely be the one I want to meet.

It's all relative, isn't it? Yesterday I stopped in a women's clothing boutique and was looking at beautiful dresses in the $200 range. I thought to myself, "This is where I'll come for a dress when (and if) one of my daughters is getting married someday." I agree with Ginnie, thrift store bargains for me most of the time.

What a great illustration! You are better and better at expressing your thoughts through art, I love that! I hate the feeling these people give off while in their presence though. Yuck.

Hi Caroline! Long time no see, and I see that I've missed a lot of fantastic illustrations here on your blog! I'm glad you decided to go as yourself to this benefit thing, daring to be onself and not something else is a great thing, only very brave people can do that. As always the American "charity circus" fascinates me. I find it quite tacky sometimes when I peek at the NYC Social Diary, but of course it's also some of the tacky rich the enables your museums etc to exist. Charity organisations is a very new thing here, so it's always interesting to see how the "American way" works.

I loved the earlier fashion show and had a fun chuckle over stuck hubby. You did good and made a good choice. :)

Blogger Elizabeth said...

Well done you! I'd rather have talked to you too ~ Truth and Honesty over pretention and 'money' anyday.

I bet you looked gorgeous.

Just LOVE your illustrations.

I think you are a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stale, toxic environment. Well done, Caroline!

As usual that is an exceptional drawing. You perfectly captured the pinched faces of the rich and your own natural beauty as well.

Most excellent!

I'll bet you looked awesome. :)


Peace,

I absolutely ADORED this. The illustrations and your conviction to represent the truth - rather than break the bank to "fit in."

I dated a spine surgeon for a long time and he used to want to spend a lot of money to make me fit in with the other surgeon's wives - but I told him I wasn't a surgeon's wife, I was a single, working mother - and we would end up at dinners with me wearing Old Navy and Faith sitting between us - LOL!!! k.. she did make up for a lot, as she pretty much smiles and never throws a fit in public.

But you know what - I would rather be me. I bet a lot of those people would kill for a fraction of the wealth you possess.

Hooray for you, hooray for being you, hooray for the truth of you, hooray for honoring yourself. Hooray, hooray, hooray Miss Potato Prints! As always I love your illos for this post...especially all that money on the floor!!
I love how you got right to the heart of the matter and in the end....you were Caroline - and they were damn lucky to have you!!
XOXO
