fyi...I hate Lena Dunham

After a late summer beach trip, I just can't get into the bitchy mcsnotty this Monday, even after the Emmys.But I feel I need to share my thoughts, so here are a couple.  First, I loved all the bright dress colors. Second, I think we all can agree Heidi Klum is bananas beautiful and the aqua color looked flawless on her. Even after the whole Angelina Jolie-slit debacle she chose to pull off a risky slit and it worked.

Third, the big talk of the night was the red heads taking charge! And by "all the talk", I mean talking to myself in my living room. Louis CK, Damian Lewis, Julianne Moore doing work.

God, how much do we love this red headed terrorist?!?
PS. Homeland starts next weekend! Sqeelsoexcited!
Thoughts on JM's dress? I thought it was murder.death.kill but mostly because
 I wouldn't/couldn't be caught dead in yellow.
It makes me look a little heppy B.
Christina Hendrick's boobs were out of control, I thought Ashley Judd looked ridiculous, I loved Portia deRossi's pantsuit, and I am slowly starting to hate Julianna Margulies. But all that is sound and fury signifying nothing after you see this...

I apologize for not keeping you up to date with the latest styles from NY Fashion Week and now from London, but other than the Burberry show, I really haven't seen anything that's blown me away. Let's talk later in Milan where I'm sure there will be something good.

Keeping on the theme of nothing to see in London, look at what we have here. My least favorite tennis player and my favorite editior-in-chief. Does Roger Federer know about this? I feel like she's cheating on Rog...and not even on the sly. She did it right on the front row! At Burberry! Have you no shame Anna Wintour? And have you no taste? Andy Murray? Ugh.
I hope AW is telling him how much she loves Fed and his no-sweat-ever hair.

Andy looks almost decent here....almost cute. eek!

Andy's girlfriend is precious looking, but here we are yet again with someone in September. She's British, so I'll let it pass....and she's sleeping with Andy Murray so she needs all the passes she can get. Bless her heart.

straight out of cape cod

How does that saying go? We came, we saw, we conquered? Yeah...well that's what basically happened at the Cape, except we came, we saw, and we destroyed that shit like the F5 tornadoes we are. We whirled into town on Thursday and by 2pm we were on our second bloody mary. And that's how the weekend pretty much went - we lived on bloodies and cold cuts and it was awesome.

those volleyball players were on their staff retreat at the Chatham Bars Inn.
the company? Bain Capital.
The bride was gorgeous; the setting amazing. And the dancing...well they played September by Earth, Wind, and Fire right off the bat. It set the scene for the night and I rocked my jam like never before. I was probably a hot mess.
Chatham Bars Inn...other wise known as heaven.
Next time I go back, I want it to be October with a crisp chill in the air. I will wear a large gray cable knit sweater, jeans, will sit on one of the adirondack chairs, sip apple cider (or a "donkeychino") and be happier than I've ever been. Until then Chatham...


PS - the night before I left, I had my first official conversation with my gym boyfriend. It was about 5 minutes long, it was informative and it was glorious and to know that he, too, loves tennis made the weekend even better. SIGH.

where my WASPS at?

Leaving for Cape Cod in the morning with New Girl for a friend's wedding and I couldn't be more excited. I have packed my preppiest outfits and have stuck to my guns not to bring the white jeans. I just can't do it...not after labor day...even on the Cape.

In honor of Gail and Scott's upcoming nuptials, I give you my favorite youtube video, countless times I will scream "straight out of cape cod we're keeping it real" or "where my wasps at" gangsta like, massive bottles of champ drunk, cheers-ing "la hymen" at least once, and I will try to refrain from asking the dj to play "September" and "Cha Cha Slide" on repeat. I'm not making a lot of promises though on the last one. (oh ps - cupid shuffle doesn't count). Love you both. xo

end of summer blues

Is it me or is everyone overly hateful and aggressive today? It's more than the end of a three-day weekend (which was 4 days for me! One of the only great perks of the job)'s the end of summer and thus the end of slacking off for 3 months straight.  Congress is only in session for 8 days in September. read that correctly...EIGHT. Don't you want to have their job? So this means that while we might work hard, it's only going to be for 8 days. And with my two day work week this week and my beach trip at the end of the month, I feel that I can find the strength to make it. I know you all are jealous.

Speaking of jealously, the fashion house of Lanvin and adorable pocket designer, Alber Elbaz have teamed up with Laduree to create a limited edition box of macarons (all bubblegum flavored). They hit Paris stores September 25th. I would ask if anyone is over seas to pick me up a box, but bubblegum? I think I'll pass.
I want to put Alber in my pocket and carry him around all day. He's perfection with his little bow ties and ascots. In a recent article in the WSJ Magazine, he was quoted as saying, "Sometimes you don't really need armor to feel protected. Sometimes maybe you need just a chiffon dress to hug you. And if you feel that the dress hugs you and the dress loves you, you feel strong and protected." What a great sentiment.
