This week has flown by. It was Sunday and I was exploring The Lanes and enjoying a roast at Seven Stars, and now it’s Friday and we are wrapping up flights and hotels and meetings and everyone is printing out their boarding passes and sorting their taxis for tomorrow. I meet them in Frankfurt on Sunday and we will hit the ground running. Year 11 of this show, year 3 for me. And in a blink of...
michelleomatic said: You’re such a baller. Who watches Montauk when you’re away?...– Oh hai, you’re awesome :) Montauk lives full time with The Initials, and she has a little pack of pups who she goes on afternoon walks with so she is well taken care of. I see her whenever I can, and she and I like to have cocktail dates when I am in town. One of the best things about...

May is for catch ups and welcome homes. it’s for bbq’s and rum punch and mint juleps. it’s for a quick trip to Chicago, a booth, a presentation and packing for 26 days of travel and finding my uniforms I haven’t touched in six months. It’s for celebrating, birthdays and jobs well done. It’s for strolling along Church Road, well-fried eggs and rose in the...

There is a little cafe on the seafront in Brighton, just on the border of Hove, Actually. It’s across the street from the little flat where I stay with The Men and The Old Boys, with the balcony that over looks Kings Road. They serve eggs and sausages and hash browns and coffee and ice cream to the bikers and the walkers and the boot camp survivors. And I buy a latte from a Romanian, or...

This is a bit of a long-shot, but I am in need of a fascinator for a wedding in England this June. It’s my first wedding in the UK and truth be told, I am most excited about this hat situation. I have fallen madly in love with this John Lewis number, but as it is sold out I’ve gone back to the drawing board. I’ve seen some fun ones online, but nothing quite like this - any...
