Dearest Lindsay,
So, we see you're getting some work. That's nice.

Clearly you one of the first to get a copy of the issue, and attempted to destroy it before anyone else saw it. Good effort. But in future, folding paper over and over will not make it disappear no matter how tiny the square gets. I will assume that you agreed to this the morning after a night of heavy binge drinking and simply didn't have the energy to resist after which, you saw the composites and promptly set them on fire.
It's not a bad shoot, but the overt sexuality is a little tried. We've seen it all before dear. Let's make like Brittney and reinvent (skip past the shaving of the head s.v.p) You'll thank me.

par⋅fum -noun [par-fœn]


1.a substance, extract, or preparation for diffusing or imparting an agreeable or attractive smell, esp. a fluid containing fragrant natural oils extracted from flowers, woods, etc., or similar synthetic oils.
2.the scent, odor, or volatile particles emitted by substances that smell agreeable.

in the past, I'd never really been able to find one that really tickled my fancy, growing tired of the scent literally within the hour. I'd come to realize that the slightly musky typically 'perfumed' scent just wansn't for me. Instead I'd wear scented oils like Body Shop's Satsuma and Sandalwood or Escada's Moonsparkle (it smells yummy and more like blackberries than traditional perfume). But after finding a perfume test card in a magazine the other night, I think it may be time to put add a few more bottles to my dresser.

Also, I've always had a thing for this ad campaign. Bridget Bardot, balloons and Paris. Oui Oui! Every fashionista loves this comercial: I couldn't resist having an excuse to post it:)

I would wear everything here exactly as it is. I've been loving the bright cobolt blues for the season and I could go with a punchy orange accessory now and then. Fall is more exciting with two sided wool and lamé leggings and Donatella knows it. J'adore. J'adore!

Joseph Gordon Levitt of recent 500 Days of Summer and of more vintage 10 things I hate about you fame hosted SNL this weekend. Seeing as I've been living on a student budget all year
(ie: popcorn for breakfast with boxes of wine to wash it down) I don't have cable. But the one night as was at a friends watching the episode hosted by (the uber boring) January Jones of Madmen they promo'd JGL hosting. I was like YES. Even MFox couldn't get me to scour for whole online episodes of SNL but that's how it went down for this episode. Thus is the power of a well dressed man dancing to 'Make my Dreams' by Simon and Garfunkle for you (gentlemen take note).
Anyways, introduced by charming monologue Joseph performed his opening speech as a cover of Make 'Em Laugh from Singing in The Rain. It was so cute. If you have not seen Singing in The Rain you probably didn't understand it. But really, what is there to understand? He was wearing adorably endearing amounts of tweed and backflipping off walls. Just enjoy it.
Merci SNL for providing such a stylish host for your fashionista (or fashinisto) viewers.
Also, please start being funny again. New writers aren't hard to come by, just shanghai some from NYU, I'm sure they'd be happy to oblige
