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.

My limited-edition red Jil Sander beanie finally arrived after ordering it from the Jil Sander online store. I took it out for a spin while driving around West Hollywood with my boyfriend and Rumi. We were scouting for cute houses to rent… or to use as photo backdrops. Los Angeles is filled with these gorgeous, green bushy hedges. I love them!

I thought I’d share some photos from my Las Vegas birthday vacation. I’ll let these images do the talking. For now at least. My brain is fried!! Hah. More images to follow! I love you all.

I bought this navy veiled beanie designed by Stephen Jones for Jil Sander at the Paris boutique during Paris fashion week and I’ve been wearing it almost every day. It’s one of my favourite purchases this season and I’ve gotten major mileage out of this (very) expensive hat. I regret not buying the white one. What’s annoying is that it took an amazing genius like Stephen to come up with the idea of combining something so terribly banal (beanie) with something so chic (netted veil). The result, is, phenomenal! I can’t believe no one ever thought of it before and could’ve sold it for a friendlier price.

Alber Elbaz celebrated his 10th anniversary at Lanvin a couple of days ago (how fast time flies!). My friend German took photos of Anna dello Russo and moi in our veiled headgear. I’m so glad I bought the veiled beanie at Jil Sander. I wanted to buy the white version but it’s going to be a bitch cleaning it because you can’t wash the beanie; I don’t think a dry cleaner would accept it either…

I have a love-hate relationship with the sun. I love the sun because I tend to be happier and more alive in the heat and I also don’t have to worry about freezing my balls to death. But then again, I hate it because the sun is bad for one’s skin, I sweat like a whore in church AND my clothing options are extremely limited. I picked up this Jil Sander spring/summer 2012 python print t-shirt from Luisa Via Roma in Florence two and a half weeks ago and I’ve been wearing it like crazy. Butch queen first time in drags at a ball! Here’s some Friday humor for you. Cheeky!
