Day 274, Year 3: Handmade photography earrings by Kristen Blush


When I got in from Dallas, I found this amazing artistic surprise from my sister, waiting for me on my dresser!

Kristen Blush is showing at RAW NYC tomorrow, and these home-spun works of art will dangle from my ears in celebration of the festivities.

The design replicates an old Polaroid, and a Kristen Blush original print hangs front and center. My custom design pays homage to Red Hook, Brooklyn, where I lived with Kris briefly during my transition to NYC. Kris painted the wooden frames, bought real gold chains in the jewelry district, and included lots of sparkles for her big sis.

These are fantastic, and I love them!

Day 272, Year 3: Jason Winniford is in NYC


Our day was epic. It was short, but it had bang for the buck. He met me at my place in Chelsea, and from there, we had wine, meat and cheese in Eataly, pizza at Lombardi’s, subways, Times Sq, Radio City, Rockefeller Center, 5th Ave, Central Park, Hearst Tower, and Tavern on the Green, where we were enjoying martinis in this photo. I miss him already.

Day 271, Year 3: Inside Chanel’s #N5NY exhibit


As you would expect from Chanel, it was a beautiful exhibit in the heart of Meatpacking. The interactive was exceptional, premium, and fun!

Chanel No. 5 is over 90 years old, and this year, there’s a variation that’s modern and fresh to enjoy… Still No. 5 in name, taking on the notes of the original. To be clear, the original is still in production; this is a variation, not a replacement.

Also, I learned that 5 was Chanel’s lucky number. Nice. Great job to Nicole for working to keep everybody happy in line.
