Over the weekend, in between football games, I finished this incredible book by Amanda Mackenzie Stuart, which I added to my summer reading list. The most interesting and thorough over view of this phenomenal woman’s life. It made me miss working for Polly Mellen, who I only assisted for one year before she retired. What an amazing history, so much creativity, strength, beauty and power to change the world we exist in.

The film isn’t just for fashion lovers but anyone interested in a truly incredible life. The trailer below. Continue reading
Warpaint is playing a free concert with Yellowbird on June 26th in Brooklyn at Prospect Park Bandshell. You guys, we are going! I am so excited. Photo by Mia Kirby. The new album hit back in January from Rough Trade.
The World Cup matches start tomorrow with Brazil & Croatia, which provides everyone not only the opportunity to cheer on hot men in shorts but do some day drinking on week days (sometimes early in the morning with a bagel). The full schedule is here and the best places to do all of the above here. That’s my old friend Maxim at a dacha outside of Moscow, where we played football in 2003.
