Where we are now


Niki and I took the train up north to spend a few days with my childhood friend Sara, her husband Petter and their kids Lee and Dina (son Morris was away). 

It's so beautiful up where they have their summer house.


Here's Sara with Mason. He usually lives in LA just like the rest of the family. 


The house is a one minute walk from the beach. Here's Niki with friend Ossian.





Lee.

NY Nights




Veronica




Ronnie, a longtime reader of this blog (and letters to marc jacobs for those of you who remember), dropped me a line.

I went to check out her own blog and was amazed at the beauty of her pics.

Take a look for yourselves.

Nearly 60 million people are displaced worldwide. Each day thousands more flee their homes. Beyond the headlines, men, women and children lead everyday lives in makeshift camps, On June 20, we shine the light on the strength, courage, and resilience of millions of refugees. #WithRefugees #World RefugeeDay.

not what he penned


I know he wrote it differently, lounging in that leather seat, but the way I've always sang along with Englishman in New York is not 

"I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien

I'm an Englishman in New York"

But instead "Oh oh I'm an idiot, I believe in anything, I'm an idiot in New York".
Not sure how it happened. Perhaps because I'm an idiot in New York?

Try it for yourself.

Wardrobe



I read this somewhere recently: If you only buy clothes that you feel are OK, then you'll end up with a closet of blah choices.

It struck a chord. I sometimes pretend I don't care so much about clothes but it's not true. I love clothes. Not all of them but some! It's ok to buy clothes you love. So much more ok than buying clothes that will just do.

I'll try to remember to post some of my wardrobe faves soon.
But first I need to work work work, sell our house and take care of myself, mom and Niki.
Above: Me an mom. I'm wearing new faves! Silk shirt and silk pants, both from Kerber.
They have a sample sale right now.

Favorite TV-character


I LOVE Constance Wu as Jessica in Fresh off the boat. Best comedienne ever. Timing, execution - all of it: immaculate.

PS. ALSO! if any of you know where she found this PERFECT GREEN VELVET dress that she wore to the Asian American Awards Unforgettable gala in 2015, let me know!!!



Best matched with: AWARD.

New instagram-feed


I started a new instafeed, for pics taken with a camera. 

it's here, come join:


The ridiculous name is me being Phoebe from Friends. Did you know I am sometimes her? I am. Involuntarily.


It went down like this: 

We had a friend over who was looking at a pic we've puy up on our wall. 

Our friend said: That's a great picture, where is that from? 

I tried to recall when exactly I'd taken it and if I took it with my phone or my camera and slowly replied:

"Oh...I took it...with my camera".
and it sounded so ridiculous we both started laughing really hard.

Ps. I don't even think I did. I think I took that one pic with my cell phone.
