Heavy is the head

street There’s nothing like going up for tenure to give a person a headache. All the contradictory advice makes me sweaty. All the judgy judginess of the judging makes me cranky. And then there’s holding my colleagues’ hands as they fret over my prospects. I want to postpone the panic. They want to have it now. And the whole process takes a year. A year of angst. I’ve decided that the only way to get through this assessment period is to reposition “executive realness” for the modern woman. That’s why Portia is decked out in Riri Nini’s new Afreak jackets for h.m.a.e.m and Delmar Quintessa’s crowns for West 143rd. You will have to take the express train to snag the jackets, and coordinating, but not matching, skirts, at The Couturier’s Docks, where only 50 copies are for sale. The gold-and-black banded version of the crown, along with a mini-crown and a collar, are for sale at this month’s round of The Gallery Gift Shop. Other combos of black, silver and gold are available at the mainstore on a limited time offer.
