So much has happened since we last spoke! Obama is in, Yves Saint Laurent is gone, there was an earthquake in Sichuan, this Sex and the City thing came out, you may have heard…. oh, and I am back in Paris! I’ve been back since Sunday.
But what I came here to tell you is that with all the stuff going on, I did not even get to link to the May newsletter I wrote for Département Féminin. And so I didn’t get to show you this picture of Monica Vitti, like I’d been planning. And to tell you that of all my summer clothes, I am most excited about my new Gap shirtdress. If you’re in the market for a shirtdress, I’ll warn you it is short, but it is also oh, so Vitti (unbelted, with the collar up).
So much stuff! I have not even told you the biggest thing of all, so much bigger than Obama, YSL, Vitti’s sexy dress and the rest: My sister Aimee got engaged last week! While staying at my place in Paris with her boyfriend/fiance Jordan. I was still in Chicago, so it worked out perfectly. But I love the fact that they were staying at my place, and I can’t help boasting about it. As if my empty apartment had something to do with it.
And the last thing I want to say is that I hosted book club last night. (We discussed The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. I made quiche. Good times.) And now we are trying to decide what our next book will be. It has to be in French this time. I’m taking suggestions.
