⚓ Today was the most relaxing day I’ve had in a very long time. 🐠

If you can social distance in nature, like avoiding people on a hike or something intimate at sea, I highly encourage the attempt! I miss the water! Saltwater… freshwater… any water! Yet, in my haste to get to the boat I grabbed the wrong book sleeve. So I found myself unexpectedly starting a new book today.

📚 The Chiffon Trenches: A Memoir
by André Leon Talley

Synopsis (excerpt from @goodreads ):
”The Chiffon Trenches offers a candid look at the who’s who of the last fifty years of fashion. At once ruthless and empathetic, this engaging memoir tells with raw honesty the story of how André not only survived the brutal style landscape but thrived–despite racism, illicit rumors, and all the other challenges of this notoriously cutthroat industry–to become one of the most renowned voices and faces in fashion.”

✨ Did I ever tell y’all I used to be a freelance fashion designer? From my bedroom to a leased studio, I used to live for the hustle and bustle of runway shows and photoshoots. Most of my gigs we’re small-time, but they were everything to me. These days I just want to slow it all down, yet I have mad love for those still in the business. André Leon Talley is legendary and I am fascinated with his life. I cannot tell you all how not disappointed I was to see this book in my bag! Do you love fashion? It’s always delightful to meet other lovers and creatives!

✨ Thank you @readitforward & @randomhouse for this recent book mail! It definitely provided a few glorious hours of entertainment. When I get home I will have quite the dilemma of which book to finish first.
