"Bro Mitzvah -- black guy, mitzvah? Bro Mitzvah!" - Rev Run

Tonight on 'Run's House' they're going to a dude ranch. Man, I love this show.

What's sign-language for boobs?

I was walking home from the T-Mobile Sidekick launch party tonight and stopped at a Don't Walk sign. Three guys walk up behind me and there's a bit of a kerfuffle. I turn around slightly and see one guy point at me, a bunch of rapid sign language transpire, and then one of the guys making the universal sign for boobs (uh, two hands cupped in front of his chest). Then there was some general jolliness and more signing.

I can't be sure, but it seems I may have just been sign-language harrassed.

1973 / Here we go again

I would call you up every Saturday night, and we both stayed out 'til the morning light, and we sang, "Here we go again." And though time goes by I will always be In a club with you In 1973, singing "Here we go again."

Last year / This year

So last August I went to Joan Shepp and bought this Rick Owens coat. You can't tell from this picture, but the hood and the back of it balloon out like a beetle. Or something like that. Anyway, I bought it, full price, it is amazing. But I never wore it. Because for the rest of the fall 2007 season I got bigger and bigger -- it was like I happened to buy that coat on the last day in my life I'd ever be able to fit into it. So it's still sitting in the garment bag with tags on. This season I'm going to wear it, which means I have to lose some weight. My goal is to drop a few pounds before Milan fashion week. Not like it's going to be cold enough to wear a woolly coat in mid-to-late September, but still.

Devising my fall look

I have been dressing really badly for the past few seasons -- I've been suffering from fashion complacency and got caught up in the market, buying cutesy dresses and "funny" clothes. This fall I'm dedicating myself to a return to fashion. So I'm doing some research on what to save for this coming season. I always get really excited for autumn because summer is difficult for me and fashion -- it's hot in New York. Also, I like fall-winter because I love coats. I love the concept of outdoor clothing vs. indoor clothing -- in a way, I don't like when strangers on the street are privy to my indoor clothing. We're all layers, like onions, more intimate with every layer.

So this fall, my look will be truffle -- lumpy, black, expensive. I'm breaking the bad fashion habits I've fallen into over the last few seasons and getting my head back together. Time to try to get back to feeling like myself again.

Back from Super Saturday, exhausted, didn't buy anything.

But it was fantastic for people-watching.

Tapout, House of Diehl, Kinerase, Sue Devitt, and Lockheart in this week's Haute List

It was really fun putting together this week's Haute List. You already know I went to AC for Style Wars this weekend, but I have to say that the highlight of my July has been meeting and talking with the Tapout guys, Mask, Punkass, and SkySkrape. I love their show -- I'm actually watching the first episode of their second season right now -- and I always love big tough guys, especially ones who aren't afraid to dress up and, uh, wear makeup. The Tapout guys are actually super-charming and really goofy and adorable in person -- and the stares we got going out on Sixth Avenue, taking pictures across the street from Radio City Music Hall? Priceless. I have big love for Tapout.

I'm really excited about the Chanel Pavilion at Central Park designed by KL and Zaha Hadid opening October 2008.

The Brother Jimmy's allure -- it's not just the barbecue!

Just got home from the office and a little sleepy, but holding out that Hollin's flight gets in on time so she, EC, and I'll all get to pop by the Brother Jimmy's Murray Hill opening party tonight -- at least for a pint and to scope out the chain's newest location. If it seems a little out of the ordinary, why yes, how perceptive of you to notice.

We've been going to Brother Jimmy's since our college summers (internships) and more regularly just after college, when I first met EC. Hollin and EC are besties from boarding school and Hollin went to Dartmouth too. One of my closest friends from Dartmouth, Helen, Hollin, and EC and I would go to the Brother Jimmy's in the 70s on the UES, hang out at the bar, see random people we knew -- at the time it seemed like every recent grad in the city would either be there, at Moe's Carribean, or Dorian's on any given night -- and grab dinner after long days at our entry-level jobs. I think on Tuesdays they gave customers discounts if they presented southern IDs, and there were always North Carolina and Texas drivers' licenses around the table.

Been surfing men.style.com today, it's really an amazing site, really witty and well-done.

Especially their videos

I love Gawker's LOLVogue features, esp the Francais ones

One quiet week

Last week I ended up going out every night -- including all night Saturday to Atlantic City with the House of Diehl folks -- so this week I've really been taking it easy... which means I've been getting a little antsy.

In college, Chrissy said to me: "You know how you eat a huge meal and you're totally stuffed, but then a couple of hours later, it goes down a little bit and you're STARVING again?"

Yeah, that's kind of how I feel about going out. I'll go for weeks or months going out every night -- to super-fantastic events and dinner parties, meeting amazing people, getting really inspired to do new things and start creative projects, but totally running on empty, exhausted, no time to myself, messy apartment, etc. And then I stop going out for a minute and the quietness can get overwhelming really quickly.

It's good, though, this self-imposed calm. I definitely need a few days to myself to recharge.

So now I've just ordered some Korean food and am going to channel surf. How pedestrian!

Back where we started, just before 6 am.
