A Little Something
I'm just back from the Barney's Warehouse Sale. The guy at the bag check-out said I look like Hugh Jackman. That was a first. At the sale I was looking for something sensible like a summer sport jacket or a winter coat. What I came home with was a silk Etro pocket square (shown above, with Rose inspecting) because it really caught my eye. I love Etro, and these mad colors – orange, purple, green, blue – combined together on one small piece are delicious (click on the photo to see it better). Very bohemian. I'd just like to hang it up on the wall so I can look at it. I'll wear a white shirt and a navy blazer with these bits of bright color sticking out of the pocket. It will cheer me in cold January.
But now it is steaming in New York City. I took a hot run today along the Hudson River Park. The city is deserted; there were about two people laying in the grass which is usually packed with sun bathers. Like Andy Warhol said in his Diaries, "All the attractive people have been invited out to Fire Island." But I love summer in the city.
