This was a good week. I got back from LA, we launched THE BLANKETS, and I was busy with shoots, recordings, and deadlines. My dad and I have started doing monthly “just us” lunches which is something I really look forward to. (Yesterday was our second – we went to Shiki for sushi). Meanwhile, my mom and I are taking a “paint your pet” class this afternoon. I am excited / slightly worried to see how I do with painting.
On the work front, something I am really excited about is that AIR MAIL (Graydon Carter’s super cool and chic newsletter + website) asked me to be a guest curator this week. You can see all of my picks here, but also: they’re giving readers of The Stripe 50% off a subscription. I love AIR MAIL – it is one of my daily reads as they have such a fresh (and clever) take on all things fashion, culture, art, and beyond. It was a true honor to get to do this!
