Tod's Gommini Driver

After a quick trip to Williams-Sonoma on Beverly Drive, Andrew helped me pick this out at Saks on Wilshire. I know the purple suede had been saturated on all the blogs (The Sartorialist) the past few seasons but I had to have it.

Christmas 2010

I had been looking for this issue everywhere. no luck. but maybe not everywhere enough because andrew suprised me with it christmas morning.

andrew found a copy of "a privileged life" at assouline but was damaged in shipment. the company was very prompt in sending another one. he also got me a copy of christopher isherwood's "a single man" and because he knows i absolutely love the cover (not the actor), "risky business."

andrew's new a.p.c. jacket and acne sweater and the other two shirts are for me. i love all the colors together.

andrew had to have this shipley & halmos sweater. the hem has side slits. it's so understated which makes it even more chic.

our christmas tree.

we skyped with his parents christmas morning and opened presents in front of each other.

surprisingly i had never bought this book for myself in the past. strange, i know. but andrew knew i had to have it.

andrew also surprised me with this bar soap. the scent in this form is so much better than as a spray.

this was such a surprise. andrew found it on ebay. he knows i am obsessed with the book/film. i am so happy.

and in his way of making me feel whole again, andrew bought me a pair of new new balances.

on a last minute trip to the apple store in glendale galleria, i found this philippe starck designed hard drive. a few months ago, andrew lost almost all his mp3's when his old hard drive went dead. this was such a great find. a fashionable computer accessory to say the least.

andrew's parents sent me this for christmas. it's such a wonderful scent. i think it's more fitting as a room spray. i love it.

andrew's parents ordered this from fitzu. such a minimal and perfectly designed decanter.

having fallen in love with la mill coffee, i thought it was necessary for andrew to drink out of their coffee cups as well.

andrew's parents got him these amazing heath espresso cups and, of course, an espresso stovetop maker.

the batali in yellow and more heath (bowl, plate) for andrew from his parents.

i beat andrew's parents to the punch when i ordered this "oprah's favorite things" breville panini press. his parents and i were texting each other the week leading up to christmas to make sure we weren't doubling up on presents.

i have a funny story about these mints. andrew found this from georgia (online) of all places.

the aftermath.

and more.

Spring/Summer 2011 Want

Tod's Gommini Driver in Mustard.

I immediately fell in love with Korralreven while driving home down Sunset Blvd. from Amoeba Records.

Johan Duncansson from the Radio Dept. and Marcus Joons

Andrew's 28th at A.O.C.

In attendance were Nerisa, Kim, and Bobby & Peter.

The birthday dessert was riccota cheesecake with Laura Chenel's chevre, persimmons and pomegranate.

Bobby & Peter also brought brownies from Bouchon.

Afterwards we caught an 11:35 screening of Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere."
