Welcome to that special hour in the afternoon where your brain train is slowing to a glacial crawl, your lipstick is beginning to resemble that of the Joker, lunch is a forgotten memory and dinner may as well be next year. But it’s only 30 short minutes until the masses start using the clock as an excuse to abandon their to-do lists, and, as a public service, I’ve found a few ways for you to kill those in a non-violent manner.
We’re basically just a bunch of humanitarians.
1. As of today, Grace by Grace Coddington is more than just an apt description of how she goes about her day.
Grace Coddington, inimitable Vogue Creative Director at Large, teamed up with Comme des Garçons to release a rose-scented fragrance and the no-doubt beautiful lovechild now has its very own crib on the world wide web. It’s super adorable, as babies tend to be. Check it here.
2. Anna Wintour and Andrew Bolton discuss The First Monday in May.
The First Monday in May isn’t any old day, it’s that of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala. It’s also the name of a new documentary by Andrew Rossi about the making of the very same thing, out April 15th. Watch this interview with Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton for a sneaky peek behind the scenes.
3. Irene, our new collective Grandma, teaches us about bikini bodies.
That is to say, bikini bodies are quite simply all bodies. I’m not sure how the internet found out about the world’s now-favorite-90-year-old’s donning of said swimwear, but I’m really glad it did because now we all have a new summer mascot. Irene says, “My message is always to get out, enjoy yourself, and you are never too old for swimmers!”
I love and aspire to be you, Irene.
4. Topshop Finds: a vintage section for those who dislike vintage shopping!
Topshop just unveiled a new section on their site featuring reworked vintage finds and, although it seems to be in its infancy, it’s looking pretty promising. I’ll keep my eye out if you keep your eye out. That’s two full eyes! We won’t miss a thing.
5. It’s almost nap time…I mean, tax time!
This might just be the tamest countdown of all countdowns, but taxes are due in 11 short days. In a somewhat snooze-worthy celebration of MR’s Get Your Shit Together month, here are some last-minute tips on doing the most boring of deeds.
I can’t end on that note in good faith! So, here’s a special #TB in honor of #T, which is sure to have you chuckling far past when the clock strikes happy hour.
