the SIX CHICEST THINGS about november : belated edition

1.  the illustrations of richard haynes, 
from his blog "what i saw today"
which get more and more hypnotic each month.
 2.  the leather trimmed ysl coat i didn't buy,
which became a best pick.
3. anna wintour.
amid rampant rumours of her "retirement",
even about her replacement being fellow editrice, carine roitfeld,
ms. wintour remains, glacially, classically,
even, apparently, dining with ms. roitfeld.
ladies and gentlemen,
THAT is truly chic.
4.  the new rick owens lookbook.
the boy is oddly disheveled,
as the clothing remains as lust-worthy as always.

6.  the gay times "recruitment" poster in london.
after right-wing conservative groups in england claimed gays were recruiting straights,
the gay times held a contest to find the most compelling poster to truly "recruit" a straight man.
the winning entry, above.
the text simply says:
"anything she can do . . . "

wow! there's so much to write about here! i am soooo flattered and honored to find not 1 but 2 drawings on your november chic list.

i know you don't mess around when it comes to chic and style so i really thank you for that!

and the interview thing just kind of developed. i want to do an ongoing series...

and i love the UK poster of the mouth - that is genius.

i hope you are well and taking all your changes in stride - move, new job - that's a lot. let me know if you are still interested in purchasing the sketch - i have people buying them for xmas gifts.

cheers, r
