Read my left palm: as the 424 Fifth clutch indicates, it screams for a vacation. And if my clothes could speak, they’d go on and on about how I’m a tiny bit unravelling. Raw-edged. With Fashion Weekcoming fast, and a new season of fashion to style and direct for Clin d’oeilright upon me (hey, the September issue and the Special Trends Issue just hit newsstands!), there’s just so much exciting stuff to do! To deal with the stress that comes with that great territory, I’ve been waking up at an indecent time in the morning lately, just so I can work out in the neighbourhood park before I head out to work. Energy level: out the roof. Next thing you know, I’ll be beating my chest and humming along.
Picture this: like a dream come true before I even had the time to dream it, my number one designer and my fave cosmetics brand collaborated. Starting next month, the collection of 9 NARS x 3.1 Phillip Limnail polishes will hit stores, and man was I counting the days… until they magically appeared on my desk, about a month ago. Needless to say my obsession with Phillip Lim reached some whole new levels, now that I can live all the way to the tip of my fingers.

I have no plans to get away this summer, so instead, I’m all wrapped up in hints of California. Venice beach vibes, more precisely. Got my sandals, my (blinged-out) shark tooth, and my Kenzo surfer top from their No fish no nothing collection, in support of the Blue Marine Foundation. It was either that, or some Rollerblades and an electric guitar, Boardwalk-style. What’s missing in this picture? The salty wind in my hair and the iodized air in my lungs. But not for too long.
