THE SCENE
A Sure Fire Way to Beat Post-Vacation Blues
We have just returned from vacation in London. Yes, the city where you-know-who got married. We enjoyed peering through the gates of Buckingham Palace, where a few days prior, a royal kiss had taken place on the balcony. We enjoyed wearing our new, summery, sunshine yellow calf length skirt, as the sun peeped out from behind London's grey clouds. We adored eating fish and chips, sprinkled with vinegar, in gastro pubs with animal names -Dog and Duck/The Cow/The Goat . But now we are back in LA and WE ARE BORED. Thankfully we have our favorite pastime: bargain shopping, to cheer us up and banish our post vacation blues!

Mixtape Mondays: Fashion Week

Fashion Week starts September 9th. In preparation, I've lined up a playlist that takes us through a day during the most wonderful time of the year because everyone knows you want to be part of fashion week.

9 a.m.: Flashy shirt that is more like a tarp draping off my emaciated frame? Check! Hair that looks like it just grows that way (even though I've been awake since seven preparing it)? Check! Numerous rings, myriad necklaces and clunky bracelets (and even an anklet for good measure)? Check! $300 True Relgions jeans that I ran under my uncle Pete's belt sander for a little extra flair? Check! Empty wallet from stringing together this outfit? Check! Oh, wait, my boots. Yes. I can't forget those...
