A Small Announcement from Miss Plumcake

Hola amigos! Just a little update outside the realm of small fashion houses this week. Recently a whole mess of you have asked me in one form or another whether I’m going to be blogging about my adventures as I start my new and exciting life here in Mexico.

The answer is I don’t know.

I’d like to introduce you to a little concept called Mama’s Got Bills. Okay, I don’t have that many bills and the ones I do have I can afford by myself, but there’s a whole lot of Scotch and shoes out there that I don’t own and frankly, I’m not okay with that.

I’m only good at two things and I’m only allowed to charge for one of them (except for in one district of Tijuana, go ahead and Image Search “Zona Norte Tijuana” I’ll wait. Hint: those aren’t really Catholic school girls) so I’ve been keeping my scribblings to ‘myself with hopes that in the next year or so essays like “How Crossing the Border is Just Like the County Fair But With Slightly Fewer Piglets” and “How to Win Friends and Outdrink Waiters: a Beginners’ Guide to Being the Only White Girl in the Village” will amalgamate themselves into an actual book with pages and pictures and decent copy editing (my favorite part) a price tag (my  OTHER favorite part) and everything. Woo!

Stay tuned for more information, and if you’ve got any more questions or interests, shoot me an email. Otherwise it’s back to fat fashion from small houses tomorrow!

    Will you at least give a brief explanation of *why* you moved to Mexico? I’m late to this party and more than a bit confused … I thought they were killing folks left and right down there via drug war, and we’re all supposed to stay as far away as possible.

    Tell me the elevator-pitch story without giving away all the book-worthy details, pretty please!!

    Yep, I’d buy it! But would love some hints – suspect you’ve relocated for love, but a little of the story would be good….

    Girlfriend, I’ll buy that book. I am deeply fascinated by travelogues, travel essays, other peoples’ travel photos, blah blah blah. I’m actually one of those people who would say, “So tell me all about your trip to Venezuela..and do you have any pictures?”

    :le sigh: I have to live vicariously, you know.

    I am going to be so all over that book when it exists. I’m imagining a kind of “A Year in Provence” with tequila and sex. (Feel free to use that as your pitch line.) (Unless you hate AYIP, in which case I’m sure your book will be much better.)

    Delurking to say I would definitely buy your book.
    Love your style! And I’m not just talking fashion.
