Please come, guys, and enjoy wine and 20% off all Clare V items at the Nolita store, 239 Elizabeth Street, from 6-8.
It’s about aging and vanity.
The lovely folks at Clare V have again asked me to host a shopping party, and since I’m always game for an opportunity to meet some of you—and because Clare V bags are the best, of course—I said yes in a flash. Won’t you please come on April 12 from 6-8 to the Clare V store at 239 Elizabeth Street in Nolita for drinks and a whopping 20% of all Clare V merch? It would please me enormously if you did.
Since we’re on the topic of steals this week: mine was a Missoni space-dye dress—not unlike this one, but not entirely like it, either—marked down 75% at a Nordstrom (I think) in Baltimore, 2005. And you?
I’m going to be 54, and I am cranky about it. Please, wise readers, tell me some things you’ve liked and/or appreciated about getting older.
What are you feeling visually stimulated by these days? I’m loving Signs of Resistance: A Visual History of Protest in America, a book by my friend the genius graphic designer Bonnie Siegler (she has created logos for SNL and about a million other shows, and co-designed the original Lucky). Her eye for protest in pop culture is super-sharp, and there is so much here, including this now-iconic piece by Barbara Kruger.
I would totally hang this 1975 poster in my home.
And I’m quite fond of this one too. Now what about you? I very much want to know what’s got you inspired.
