Free Access: The Instrument at Smash Studios

I was invited by Pras for a private showcase at Smash Studios that included about 25 people. Pretty amazing. It's this new experiment he is doing that he is tentatively calling "The Instrument." Sorry it's so dark, the lighting in the studio was really low.

Jane's Sweet Buns

My lovely friend Jane opened up the cutest shop on St. Marks. She makes these delicious adult sweet treats that are based on her favorite cocktails. I love her idea of having guest bakers that are current bartenders (mixologists... whatever you wanna call them). The first guest will pop up with an amazing pastry on August 19th, so keep your eyes out for an awesome John deBary creation.

What to Wear Daily: Serge Lutens Un bois vanille

This is apart of their Beige Collection. Last time I was in SF, I went browsing through the Barney's. It's a lot smaller than the one in NYC so it's a lot less overwhelming, which is always nice. When I shop I always have something in mind but this time when I went in there I just decided to look for a new fragrance because I have been going through this new phase in my life. I haven't used many fragrances in my life and I'm really loyal, so it was kind of difficult for me. This sounds like a small change but something like fragrance is so simple but so drastic. So, when I went downstairs to their fragrance department and asked them for something vanilla, they gave me two options. This was the first and when I smelled this one, right away I knew I was in love. Serge Lutens is only available at Barney's.

I had the pleasure of meeting Ron Cooper, artist and founder of Del Maguey, Single Village Mezcal, a few months back. He is quite possibly one of the most fascinating people I have met in a long while. He has lived (and is living) such a fruitful life. If you want to try the best mezcal, I suggest you try it out. I think it's something that you have to build a palette for, but when you get there it's amazing.

Shoe Collection: Lanvin Quilted High Tops

I got these a while ago... I love Lanvin sneakers. I feel like womens sneakers are more plain than mens. It took me a really long time to talk myself into buying a pair because they are so expensive but when I decided to, I told myself that I really needed some retail therapy and these sneakers were the perfect thing to purchase.
