Check out one of my best friends Marc Sebastian Faiella pulling his finest 'dignified-and-sensitive-chap-ever-so-casually-engrossed-in-a-ultra-esoteric-book' lewk. Marc and I first met at a Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti show in 2008 or 2009, only to really hit it off a few months later at Café Grumpy (just before he won FIT’s Fusion Award). With sundry enviable internships and prominent design experiences already under his belt—and with buzzy press and modeling gigs to match—Marc now rules the roost at Parsons and Opening Ceremony Howard Street. Small world: He is also roomies with one of my other dear friends, Katie Fogarty (NEXT). Smaller world: My best friend/kindred spirit John Jannuzzi (Starworks/Textbook/To My Wife) just snatched up this very toggle coat.

Go! After all…
a) Nate Lowman is brilliant.
b) The Smile is the coziest and friendliest spot in town. (PS: many thanks for sending @alimichael, @johnjannuzzi, @meghanfarrell, @jaimebrand and me the most off-the-charts delish surprise last night!)
c) Oh, and I might be featured in the journal (photographed by Maciek Kobielski) — more on that here.
d) And on a way more persuasive note, so are Lily Cole, Juergen Teller, Harmony Korine, Mark Gonzales, Vanessa Traina, Jason Schwartzman, Sarah Braman, Kathy Lo… if you are reading this, you are likely obsessed with one/all of them.

My best friend John Jannuzzi – the Digital PR Manager at Starworks Group (that has quite the ring to it, right?) – snapped this last night while we were at a rooftop meeting in that ambiguous area where the Flatiron District meets Gramercy Park. I, for one, am awfully guilty of taking for granted our city’s breathtaking views and awe-inspiring architecture. Mental note: don’t.

drawing a blank at the moment….any ideas for tomorrow’s character post?
What about Maria Wyeth from Joan Didion's Play It as It Lays?
PS: Love you, Jannuzzzz
So sorry that I have been off the Tumb as of late! Check out this bit that I did at Lucky with my BFF John Jannuzzi since I clearly, to save the dramatics, have only sporadic experience when it comes to Father’s Day gift-giving. And menswear.
need some father’s day gift ideas? check out my interview/gift guide for lucky magazine, written by none other than julia frakes.

So here’s a select snippet of tonight’s instant message session with my best friend John Jannuzzi (of Textbook). Note our sagacity. And that we chat in #Twitterspeak. And references to Miss Porter’s School, Joy Behar and The First Wives Club. #PSTheRestisProbablytooInapporpriateforReblogging #TeamWeLeaveFashionPartiesEarlytogoEatattheDuck
