the arm of the chair shredded itself.

if you don't believe me, ask the chair.

self restraint is mutilation -

in an effort to be more fiscally responsible,
i have made a concerted effort to NOT purchase things the minute i see them.

this is hard.

this is hard because when my little eye spies an item,
it tends to spark to the inner editor,
and if it fits,
is something i will truly wallow in.

wallow in the happy puppy in a field of clover kind of way.

wallow in a disney heroine finally overcoming some insurmountable obstacle and bursting into song kind of way.

wallow in a texas cheerleader having just succesfully knocked off her rival by running her over with her new bmw m3 kind of way.

so imagine how the cheerleader/puppy in me is sad when it goes home empty handed.
not fair.

when in los angeles with todd, i resisted the urge, even though he was there the whole time going "oh, landis, you'd totally wear that. now try this on."

i resisted :

the "it" shoe of the season, the ysl painted laceless.


the piped thom browne for brooks brothers blazer (in size 0)

a simple gray suit. also t.b. for b.b.

a basic trench coat. piped in grosgrain. also by t.b. for b.b.

a tee shirt.

i'm even resisting "basics", people. i swear, i'm a monk.

um. (2)

i respect this.

i have done this.

(mine may have been shorter, denim, and with work boots. it was the nineties.)

i have never done this while on my way to van cleef and arpels,
but more power to him.

apparently, bjork has already ordered some of these.

not kidding.

is it wrong that i kind of want to wear one to my next meeting?

landis smithers is a fruit -

no, OFFICIALLY, i am:

tomatoes are actually classified as fruit because they bear their seeds on the inside,
and susan and diane just sent this to me as proof of my growing celebrity.
let's call it "burgeoning" celebrity.
i like that word.

i also like the fact that apparently i was once known as "frost resistant"

cause i'm spicy like that.

that's right.
