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:)

So, yesterday morning was one of those stressful mornings. And the best way to get over those is to indulge in some good fashion reads. This time it was for mobile's peak @ Versace's Pre-Fall Ready-To-Wear 2010.


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!
