This stupid bitch needs a publicist with an IQ. "Green," in this instance, does not refer to the color t-shirt you selected upon (unfortunately) waking this morning, to pair with your ass and jeans. Green means you give a shit about the future of the planet and investigate what you can do to better its future. Which generally, the average moron would even surmise, means NOT PICKING UP A STUPID FUCKING TABLOID AND CARRYING IT HOME IN A PLASTIC BAG, WHILE WEARING A DUMB T-SHIRT, PROBABLY NOT EVEN ORGANIC COTTON, THAT SAYS 'GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK'. Keep hanging out with Paris Hilton, you idiot Kim Kardassian. Sorry guys, I'm a few sangrias deep, and this picture just completely outraged me.

I like to consider myself a serious environmentalist, and I know these stupid t-shirts which usually retail for less than $20 in mass-market chain stores are not benefitting the cause in any way. To actually benefit the cause (esp. if you reside in New Jersey), please visit, an environmental organization dedicated to the preservation of open space, beautiful land, and precious creatures. I'm on one of their committees, and I'm extremely impressed by the level of dedication and professionalism of those involved. None of the people I've met through this organization would be dumb enough to be caught in this picture/situation.

Seriously, it's not hard, stop using plastic bags. Get two cheap tote bags (honestly, they're EVERYWHERE now.), keep them in your car, and when a cashier goes to put your pack of gum in a bag by itself, it's okay to say to them, "I don't need a bag for that, thank you." Just do it. It's important, and it makes a difference. Thank you and have a good night. <3

Fucking genius.

Tim Burton is doing an adaptation of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. I'm so excited!

Sweating and panting.. what these Gucci Hysteria bags do to me. I must say, I'm less impressed with the patent and python versions. The tapestry is just so..gypsy. Perfect. I would sacrifice a vacation to have one of these. I'll always love Tom Ford, but I really, really like what Frida Giannini has done at Gucci so far. Christ, the whole Fall 08 collection..sick.

What I Did With My Day Off

Drank coffee, tore up magazines, read Pattie Boyd's memoir, went to the gym, and lost a portion of my life to Polyvore. I'm ready for fall outfits now.

My new favorite scent

After reading about a crazy-sounding scent Lulu [of Chictopia, but does she even need introduction?] picked up back in May, I was intrigued. I looked into CB I Hate Perfume, and fell in love with the description of a scent called "In the Library":
English Novel taken from a Signed First Edition of one of my very favorite novels, Russian and Moroccan leather bindings, worn cloth and a hint of wood polish.

Christopher Brossius fails to mention the somehow-intoxicating hint of dust that the perfume imparts. It came in a tiny, science project-looking vial sealed in a little foil packet. At first, it smelled like eau de old man. I thought I was back at work. But after it mellowed on my skin for a few minutes, I was in the library. I'm in love.

Next up: Lavender Tea and Violet Empire.


On my to-read list

This has to be THE coolest bracelet I have ever seen in my entire life.


New Longchamp ads

Oh Kate. How I love thee. Doesn't she look very Brigitte Bardot? I don't even care about the bags (they're actually a bit boring..).

Another shoe post!

These are the shoes that haunt me. During the day, in the middle of trying to conduct eye night, while I'm trying to sleep. I tried on the Michael Kors heels a few weeks ago, and stupidly walked away from them. The Minnetonkas have been on my mind since I saw Kate Moss wearing them at the Kills show in May.
