Tonight I had the pleasure of spending the evening with good, good friends and I discovered a new ultrafavorite spot downtown. It was so deluxe and delovely (and cheap! -- Kirin Buy 1 Get 1 Free, 10% discount on everything for cash -- and charming! -- lemon-infused water, great service) that I had to end my hiatus for a moment to tell you personally to check out Yozakura Kushiyaki bar on Ludlow Street ASAP.
Bryan discussed his latest venture, overseeing editorial content for Brijit.com, which is kind of like The Week for the Facebook set. Maud looked like she just stepped off a runway in her perfectly edgy dress, which was sort of vintage Vivienne Westwood meets Commes des Garcons with a dash of Antwerp Six, and envy-inducing Mary Jane pumps (I never wear heels but lately all I can think of is Yves Saint Laurent's Tribute Mary Jane; I even Windowlicked them in person so you know it's for real). We talked about books and how badly we want to see The Book of Revelation screened in New York. And of course, our plan to acquire shirts that say "I go down easy" before Max's show at the Knitting Factory next Saturday night! Also, Max promised to make an "Italian Ice" ringtone and we made him swear on it.
Hope you are enjoying the waning days of summer, doves! One of these days I will get my hands on that photo of me wearing a tiara while swimming last week, but first I have some things to do for current projects, and wait until I tell you about the fall agenda... went to a board meeting for Girls Write Now last night and it was an evening par excellence. Right this second, I'm about to go make a cup of tea before bed and watch Lux Lotus BFF Stephen Lance's new short film, Yolk, for the fourth or fifth time (is it possible to overstate his genius? No.) Life is good. Back in a flash. XO.
