everyday fabulous

my little Free People bag that comes with a purchase is apparently equally suitable for French Vogue to make center in their November issue

I'm going to feel more swanky than normal using it as my lunchbox this week

pretend petite

what are the chances I can fit in a Stella McCartney for kids jacket... if it's for 11 year olds... and i'm a giant woman...

looking forward to summer with Juliette Hogan

of late

I think that's the lot for now. Songs I've had playing on a loop.

Mark Ronson - Somebody to Love Me

I've been singing this song solidly lately and I'm soooooo happy with this video because I want to party with Boy George too.

Although possibly the Boy George impersonator in the Wedding Singer...

Hurts - Stay

I love this! So 90's euro emotion! It's like if Take That came back wore suits from Germany.


one reason

I'd rant about how great Michael Bastian for Gant is but right now I'm just all about this beautiful boy.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

spare room

my roommate is moving to NYC (the jerk) but the luxury it's going to allow me, if temporary, is lots more closet space and room to see allllll my stupid clothes.

so I've been daydreaming about how to spread out all my loot in the spare room. this image is fueling the fire.

it started with "I could meet you in Paris"

me: what do you think I do for new years?!

Christina: snort cocaine and drink cristal?

me: don't forget the nipple pasties

they're expensive

and my elephant that takes me to all the do's

Christina: yeah of course

and the diamond studs for the elephant's toenails

me: that elephant is such an effing diva

Christina: he drinks too much cristal

me: alky

Christina: and then can’t walk straight


me: i'm laughing quite hard right now

Christina: haha good

with the stupid sparkly headdress all wonky because he's pissed

me: and he's wearing a studded bra even though he's a dude

Christina: and was pissed about even before he started chinning the champagne

me: he calls his ex-girlfriend after midnight to tell her he misses her and then vomits before hanging up

Christina: vomits through his nostrils

me: and then thinks it's fun

Christina: and then wonders how he managed to get glitter in his vom

me: and poses in a fountain

Christina: if someone read this they'd think we were on mushrooms or something

me: i love thinking of an elephant standing in the middle of a fountain going WAHOOOOO and then realising he's got glitter in his puke and thaaaat's the odd bit

but he's cool with the bra and nails and stuff

Christina: and he has a really deep husky dude voice but dressed in this pink sparkly showgirl outfit

me: WAAAAHOOOOOO bleeughg ghldgkjnbjdgsg

Christina: he starts singing copacabana, and then belches down his trunk

me: in that muffledy way

and he's pointing at ladies in the crowd

winking with the elephant eyelashes

Christina: which are half hangning off

me: but he's not very good at it so it's more of a blink

Christina: theyre those fake eyelashes with big neon feathers on them


Christina: there's also a little bell attached to his tail that he keeps wiggling in a coquettish manner at passers by

me: he's a big lush is our elephant

Christina: whats his stage name?

me: Bubbles the Burlesque Pachyderm

Christina: And his real name is Reggie.

me: he's always felt emasculated by his real name Reginald Tittsworth

Christina: Not least because his older two brothers and his father are all weight-lifting headline act elephants in the circus

but an injury as a baby means he's unable to lift anything heavier than a feather duster with his trunk

so he's incorporated the french maid act into his routine

much to the ridicule of his family

me: but there is NO ONE who can shimmy like Reg

Christina: his mother secretly stitches together his outfits in the dead of night

trawling the audience seats in the circus big top for stray sequins that have come off the other performers clothing

me: this is like the scariest version of dumbo ever

Christina: i know

its dumbo vs. priscilla queen of the desert

me: that is horridly accurate

Christina: reggie the big pimping pachyderm

I have the opening bars of YMCA in my head for some reason

me: because of our story of the closeted elephant

Christina: poor reg

It’s hard to be in the closet when you're an elephant

i can see Disney Pixar really buying into this tale

me: big time

you made your fortune writing the screenplay about an elephant that was secretly gay

had a drinking problem

and had a french maid sidekick

the matchbook registry

I'm in love with this blog that is simply a collection of matchbooks.

I had a secret collection of matchbooks and then my mother found them, declared them a fire hazzard, and that was that...

I can't possibly let people know who I am after all. I already have the fake first name, I just need the eyewear.

if that animal had an antagonistic relationship with humans and was vying with those humans for the favor of a Catholic God

I got this set of sketches by David Eggers last week and it's hard not to put one in ever room and make it creepy animal overkill.

August was by all means manic. Between a very very hectic work schedule and an equally hectic "holiday" that meant juggling the days and managing the hours as they came.

Lord Huron and his band are coming to knock you out

I have come to speak with you about your daughter.
She's no girl, she's a woman sir. If she wants to go and see the world she oughtta.
You have kept her here for twenty years alone.
But I'll have you know she's fully grown, and she sure knows just what she wants, my god.

If you won't allow her leaving I must take her.
I'm seeing red and I'd kill you dead if you tried to keep her here, no you can't make her.
You imagine that she's just as pure as ever.
But I have been known to shake her bones yeah we've been known to shudder and moan together.

I am not the problem. You are.

I love her. She loves me. I thought you should know.

take a listen here

Richard Wilson 20:50

Visiting Richard Wilson's room of engine oil in the old Saatchi gallery many years ago was one of the greatest piece of modern art I'd ever seen, still ever seen. I headed into the walkway with no idea what the room was about, only that it was mirrored, to have the attendant freak out at me and tell me not to touch anything. As it was a room FILLED WITH OIL.

I was very happy to see its new home in the Saatchi space off the Kings Road this morning but they currently aren't letting you walk into the wedge. I felt pretty privileged to have been able to experience the piece as it should be, in the middle of a lake that is both totally black and empty but dizzyingly filled with twice the room all at the same time.

A definite must see all the same. And I love that it's ominously housed in Gallery 13.
