Mommy day. She is wearing argyle and new color block Tory Burchs. Ugh. She can do no wrong. Let her get away with murder today.
Like FORCING me to order red velvet cake. Clearly against my will. And ORDERING me to march around beautiful Beverly Hills department stores - hunting for the Burberry cape she saw on my blog and must have...now!
At Miu Miu, we spy another duo getting away with murder: Milla Jovavich and her daughter Ever. The baby is running around the pristine Rodeo Drive store in tiny gilded shoes while her hippie-headband-wearing mother tries on a tower of "size 40" boots.
My mom coos at the gorgeous baby, oblivious to her famous mother. Milla is similarly oblivious to my mother, who - HELLO - is a stranger cuddling her child. Clearly Milla has not watched The Changeling. F.
I eventually hustle my mom away from the child, worried this will invariably devolve into a problem: her chastising me for not bearing her dozens of grandchildren, Milla waking up and treating us like kid snatchers. Ughs.
In the evening, Mr. D and I watch Milk. Excellent film, moving and funny. Am not a Sean Penn fan but this performance converted me.
Felt very disheartened to see that we are still fighting the same civil rights battle in California 30 years later. Shameful. But I found it endlessly inspiring to see the hope one individual can bring by speaking out. My resolution for 2009 is to do more of that.
Banana Republic sweater
Forever 21 sunglasses
Marc Jacobs bag
Whenever I wear this hand me down fur vest, I live in fear that PETA protestors will suddenly materialize, shouting obsceneties and splattering red paint everywhere. Ugh.
So I only wear it a couple of times of year when I am fairly certain I'll be around the fur friendly.
And it doesn't get more fur friendly in L.A. than Rodeo Drive.
As I've said before, I feel conflicted about wearing fur.
Don't let the bug glasses fool you, I am no Nicole ;)
Not an Olsen
Or a Jenny from the Block.
Or a Kate Moss. Sigh.
I could have sworn Kate Moss posed for one of those "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" campaigns at one point.
But I must be mistaken.
After all, she has one of the biggest fur collections...EVER.
Maybe I'm thinking of her naked Calvin Klein ads in the 90s.
