1. Nothing gets between Pixie Geldof and her Calvins. Well, maybe Kate Moss would, but she’s not in the photo.
2. Amanda Seyfried and Ryan Phillipe and The iPhone of Shame.
3. That Chanel velvet mini-pouch. What are we all going to do with that?
4. C.O. Bigelow’s fantastic Warhol Christmas display. Hearts.

“You’re really nice,” she says, right before she offers me two bags of cocaine “because I quit but I still have some, because I just stole it from my friends, because they should quit, too.”
Circular logic. Love it.
I look at her and say, “Why would you spend money on drugs when you could get the new Celine bag?” and then I explain that 1) I don’t do drugs; I mean, I can barely do Pilates. 2) I am not nice; I am good.
Things nice people do: Give hourly compliments. Write Christmas cards. Say “nice to see you” if they don’t remember your name. I usually won’t do any of these things. I’d rather not; anyway.
Being good is a different story. Being good is having faith that if you react as best you can, whenever you can, it might help the darkness and the light fall in line with each other. This has nothing to do with whether or not you have patience for everyone and everything that thinks it needs your time. This has nothing to do with whether or not you send thank you notes. At least, I hope it doesn’t, since I suck at those.
Last weekend, I crashed into this girl. Her existence makes me a ghost, but it’s not her fault – as usual, it’s about a guy, and a bed, and a lie, and the way feelings lace your gut like smoke from the cigarette you swore you wouldn’t have.
My heart stabbed my ribs for about five minutes, and once I could breathe I was grateful for The Good, or the belief that it can exist, somewhere, everywhere, if you try to clamp it close.
I think that’s what got me through it. Well, either that or the vodka. Who can tell when Fleetwood Mack is playing so loud…

The September Issue is on iTunes this week for $5.
A can of Slim Fast costs about the same amount.
It comes in Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry.
Vogue September, meanwhile, comes in Sienna, Grace, and Thakoon.
We’ll let you decide which one is the better investment.

Prada be damned!
Urban Outfitters is still using photos of Miuccia’s newest campaign face, Arizona Muse, on their web catalog.
I wonder if MK + A were cruising through these graphic tees when it came time to cast their models for The Row. I can just hear it…
Ashley: Who can wear a t-shirt and make it look really expensive? Oh, Arizona! Remember, she like, modeled t-shirts for a living.
Mary Kate: But Ash, our t-shirts really are expensive. And the whole point is to make them look cheap.”
Ashley: MK, that makes no sense.
Mary Kate:: Exactly! That’s why we’re so successful!
Ashley: That’s why? I thought it was because we had a really good pattern cutter.
Okay, this could go on (badly) forever. Anyway, Arizona, in a $28 t-shirt. Which, for the record, I still do consider expensive. Voila.
