Vogue October 2011 (Michelle Williams cover) — ”Sparkling Personalities”
My most heartfelt of thanks to Patrick for the marvelous experience (and the exquisite book!) along with the brilliant Tabitha—and, of course, everyone involved behind-the-scenes—for an unforgettable day.
In the first image, Tabitha dolled me up in: Solange Azagury-Partridge diamond-and-white-gold headband. Harry Winston garnet, tsvaorite, and diamond brooch. Tiffany & Co. diamond-and-rose gold earrings. Rodarte F/W 2011 look #14 ensemble.
Pictured with my love Bip Ling in: Mannu/The Gem Palace earrings. Preen by Thorton Bregazzi F/W 2011 look #1 dress. My own Rodarte for Opening Ceremony hat. (Bippy looks ravishing in an Erdem dress and Fred Leighton jewelry.)
It was such an unforeseen bonus to catch up with old friends at Patrick’s Chelsea studio: including my dearest Bip (we first met in summer 2009 on a LOVE Magazine shoot in London), my favorite fashionfolk Lynnie (who I have always held in the highest esteem, even before we struck a friendship when I was just seventeen) and my style icon Alice Lane (she first did my makeup at David Armstrong’s home for the Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony book, Reds).
What a sparkly dream.

Step, Clap, Go!, 2011 — Bad News from the Bronx produced by OCTV
To whoop it up in commemoration of the Target GO! International program’s fifth anniversary, the slick masterminds of Opening Ceremony recruited the Bronx’s very own Bad News champion step team to devise this celebratory routine with each member tricked out in re-released archival looks from the GO! International Designer Collective—which has hitherto collaborated with 17 designers including Luella, Paul & Joe (by Sophie Albou), Behnaz Sarafpour, Proenza Schouler, Libertine (by Johnson Hartig), Alice Temperley, Erin Fetherston, Jovovich-Hawk (by Milla Jovovich and Carmen Hawk), Rogan, Richard Chai, Jonathan Saunders, Thakoon, Rodarte and Zac Posen.
Launching this evening exclusively at the Ace Hotel, Target is resurrecting 34 of the past five years’ best-loved dresses for a limited time… so Step, Clap, Go (and get ‘em) nationwide on March 13!

Catching up with the talented Mr. Phil Oh a few weeks ago…
As a longtime and dedicated Rachel Comey fan, I left her Fall 2011 show on Thursday even madder for her collection than ever—thanks to her ultra-textural prints, killer new cowboy boots and trademark oversized blazers (one of her hallmarks now honed to a T). Oh, and I caught up with Teen Vogue along the way!
My old friend, Teen Vogue Online Editor Naomi Nevitt—who, in my estimation, is the best-dressed editor in the industry with the biggest heart to match—posted this snippity snapshot and asked me a question or two…
2010 Blue Ribbon Pieces Countdown, Part 2: From 1997-1998, I embarked upon an altogether awkward phase during my desperate attempt to grow out my poker-straight bangs. It was throughout this unwieldy stint that I took many a’ dodgeball/softball/soccer ball point-blank to the face owing to being unable to properly see just about anything courtesy of my too-long fringe encumbering my already hopeless faculty of sight.
My first go at alleviating the whole ‘hampered-vision situation’ was by taking a cue from Alex Mack and reverse-tucking my bangs into a backwards varsity cap, daily. Thankfully my friends had the good sense to make fun of me whenever I sported said cap… and needless to say I swiftly abandoned the Mack Hat Plan of Fringe-Attack.
I distinctly recall receiving two ‘98 Chanukah presents in particular: a selection of good ol’ Goodie barrettes from CVS and an exquisite hand-carved wooden hair clip from Vermont—the latter of which I subsequently lost just a week later while on a field trip to The Franklin Institute. Devastating.
Fast-forward a decade and change: Barrettes—especially any of the wooden sort—have indubitably been quite the sentimental fixtures throughout my life. Rodarte’s sixties-style pyrite-sprayed wooden and celery-green plastic hair pieces [above]—artisan-crafted by Kate and Laura Mulleavy themselves to match the heels of Nicholas Kirkwood's sky-high collaboration Spring 2011 runway wedges—were inspired by California Redwood trees and festooned with ornate branches, butterflies and beetles.
And they are actually going into production. And frankly, well, I’m pining (har har har) for them. And so, I tip my (Alex Mack) hat…
On location today — in my trusty Fall/Winter 2008 Sonia Rykiel oversized knit sweater snapped up while in Paris attending the Haute Couture shows in summer 2008.
Alas neither Proenza Schouler's Mochila PS1 bag nor their toggle cropped jacket left the site today. But aren't they luvvly-jubbly? Swoon.

Vogue Paris February 2010 – ”Charmeuse de serpent”

I recently made the acquaintance of John (see his Paper profile here) through one of my dearest, chicest family/high school/tennis team friends Jaime Brand (who attended college with John and ever-so-serendipitously is now the deft merchandise manager of my mom’s boutique Jane Leslie & Co.)!
John—a pillar of the Kate Spade marketing tea— is the playfully perceptive penman of textbook, a fanciful fashion blog that decisively deserves your daily perusal.
oh the joys of traveling. in my urban life i seem to always be moving back and forth between the city and the country, particularly in the winter. as such, i must say the amtrak and metro north are not the most comfortable modes of transportation. so obviously it’s a must to be comfortable. my traveling gear tends to be my favorite because i’m completely 100% comfortable, lots of sweatshirts, sweaters, jeans and usually sneakers (i had to work today so i manned up with the boots). anyways, just in case anybody cares this is what i wore on the train from new york city to farmington, ct. hoo-rah.
