Heading to Sri Lanka in a week to meet up with A.R. and cannot wait. (Apparently Sri Lanka is known for rainbows.) Perfect timing, my latest guide for The Etsy Blog, about wanderlust:
“It’s already dark when you arrive, dazed from the layover all swollen feet and fuzzy teeth, carrying what’s left of the place you’re leaving and one overnight bag. The air is different here — hotter and stickier and less careful — and everyone but you is wearing sandals, and no one knows your name.”
Clothes made of paper from the “Utoption” collection by Nadine Goepfert and Lisa Haag:
“We developed two almost identical collections distinguished only in their materiality. In the ”slow“ collection we focused on the use of high quality [materials] to insure a certain durability. The second collection is based around fast fashion and the mentality of a disposable society. It is entirely made of paper . . . Both collections deal with the value and the actual worth of a garment.”
ALSO: Plastic bag with paint in it.

To celebrate Mimi and Brian’s move out West (hooray!), I wrote a guide to my favorite secret spots in LA, including the Time Tunnels, the house Joan Didion lived in when she wrote The White Album, and that billboard on Santa Monica Blvd. with the digital counter tallying the number of “Smoking Deaths This Year”:
“The numbers tick upward, of course, an argument for the reliability of human frailty, of never learning better, a marker of fatal mistakes. Except! For this once a year when at midnight the billboard resets to zero, and you can stand out on the balcony with M. in the warm Los Angeles winter and suck in the stuff that might kill you, and revel in a few too brief seconds of nothing you’ve done being nothing you shouldn’t have done, and the mistakes still ahead, still uncounted.”
