How I end my day: I eat early and spend about an hour going through e-mail and paperwork. :I take a bath every night, which is very relaxing, with epsom salts and bath oil. Winky sits by the tub looking at me, like When are you getting out? But whenever I wash my hair, I take a shower and bath. My building has really great water pressure and the shower spout is from the 40s; it looks like a big sunflower. It is the most fabulous shower.
For me, in the bath, less is more. I like to have clear, beautiful water with some soap and lie there and feel like I’m in the Caribbean. It looks all pale, turquoise, and clear. The experience is just lying there in hot water or closing my eyes and drifting off. I’ve never lit a candle or read a book. I just zone out. I could stay about 15 minutes or even 3 minutes. If Winky isn’t nudging me, I could stay in there about 30 minutes. Then I watch television, movies and Netflix. I just unwind and be quiet.

4. and on taking cues from Steve McQueen, cuffed sleeves, and modern delicacy: chambray

6. i have also been developing a series for their blog on inspiring women from all over the country. the first installment went up last week, featuring NYC gallerist Rhiannon Kubicka.

When do you feel beautiful?
When I’ve had a moment to clear my head.
deeply inspired by two sartorial choices in inherent vice. the pairing of a navy mock-turtleneck and a jean jacket; the panama hat.
“Maybe the interesting thing about clothes is that people live in them, and that there’s nothing else really to be said.” – Tilda Swinton (this little piece from Dazed about a recent show T.S. did is worth a read)
