Sincerest apologies for the silence as of late. I’m having one heck of a wild summer. It’s been a month since I moved in and my very modest and miniscule apartment is finally seeing some signs of life. I have clutter on my hallway, cigarette ashes outside my bedroom window and dead hydrangeas in my garbage can. I have orchids, dead pheasants, scorpions and a taxidermied fox. I’m also starting to get visitors! My beloved Rumi, who’s visiting from LA, is my living room’s first tenant. There’s something amusing about turning the air-conditioning to full blast indoors and wrapping oneself in a mink blanket while it’s scorching hot and humid outside. I still have a long way to go to turn my humble home decent and camera-ready, so give me some time before I post pictures online. Just like yourself, I look forward to having a cute apartment in the next few months to come. I want to finally be able to say ‘Mi Casa Su Casa’.
Decorating and interior woes aside, it’s nice to finally explore NYC as a resident instead of being a visitor. Rumi and I took the water taxi (her first ride) and explored Brooklyn the other day.

Oh the delight of new-found discoveries! I love these gorgeous, gold-dipped headpieces designed by Sydney milliner Suzy O’Rourke. The folks from Bless’ed Are The Meek used them for their show at this season’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. Suzy makes some of the most fabulous headpieces around; you have to visit her website to see more of her work.
