Pictured: A Fine Frenzy.
Thank you for your entries! I will be announcing the winners next week but the A FINE FRENZY contest is now officially closed (although if you have made your list and want to send it in anyway, I will find you a prize; you know how I am). My fascination with yesterday's list continued today, when I wore my pink shoes and grey dress and walked my french bulldog friend up to Happy Ending (where I returned him to his grateful owner who had the whole day to work on his fashion collection; he says this fall he will make me a cape with a belt, thus fulfilling all of my sartorial dreams at once) for the season finale of Amanda Stern's excellent music + reading series, featuring my client Jean Thompson. It was really brilliant; there were like 100 people there and they didn't want to stop clapping! I was all for it. Another author I'm working with, Anne Landsman, came and she is really fun in addition to being phenomenally talented (but I already knew that). We share a fascination with hot polo players and hot riding boots, which is the sort of thing one can only discover over a lychee martini and a 'mr. ginger,' respectively. Also, I amused the people I was sitting with by recounting how my no A/C, 90 degree apartment was not so conducive to productivity today; in contrast to my usual hyper-efficiency, I spent most of the afternoon lying by the fan and sending around this photo with the caption: he look lika bunny. Yes, yes he do. P.S. Any Lux Lotus readers planning to be in Southampton this weekend? I'm going for the afternoon on Sunday and I have no idea what to expect. Tips?
