'Hermes'

weekend happy

September 2, 2011

farewell my endless, carefree as a whisper, summer. i will miss you much.

i will miss the smell of your backyard barbecue. the silent, but potent neighborhood bell which beckoned the sunburnt, beach-cruiser riding puppies home each day from the sand.

how sad i’ll be to bid adieu to my summer scents. one for day, a breezy, light, swing in a seaside hammock kind of fragrance; sweet and soft, not too strong, yuzu mixed with the pacific ocean. the other for night, a strong, night-blooming jasmine blended with a stronger honeysuckle, make this a true  southern california scent; melissa flagg’s oils conjure memories of late night, top-down drives, through the hot santa ana’s…. trisha yearwood on the radio, young boys on the brain.

goodbye mr. panama hat. it’s back to wooly bowler standby’s for fall.

come tuesday that orange blossom love which has floated throughout the house for the last 3 months will morph into a spicier, less petal-like waft. i know i’ll long for my dark, warm mornings where the gentle aroma of white flowers waltzing against a cobalt, blue sea guide me into my day.

so long to summer’s fresh, off the vine tomatoes and california avocados. i’m wet duck lucky to have such delicious local candy at my fingertips.

an afternoon nap, just my beast and i, under the serenading whirl of ceiling fan. we keep cool, talk girl, and steal away from the silly outside summer antics. this ritual i may have to keep year-long.

so m’loves, did you have a nice summer too? what will you miss?

a weekend happy to you.

see you on the other side of sunday!

Amelia

The movie Amelia opens today. I don’t want to see it. I kinda already know the ending. Sorta like when everyone ran out to see Titanic???? Didn’t they already know the punchline? But I must say I am slightly obsessed with Miss Earhart. Why you ask? Why do my pupils dilate a tad darker when I chance an image or story of this celestial siren? Is it because of  the trails she blazed in our sky? Is it for her plucky, independent streak that shattered glass ceilings for us girls? Do I love her because she defied society’s gender rules, and still maintained her feminine allure? ……………No. I just really like her clothes. She dressed totally rad and badass, but still managed to look elegant and chic. Look how effing cool she is:

If Miss Amelia were with us today she would rock Jean Paul Gautier’s Hermes, Ready to Wear Fall, 2009 collection. For once, I don’t detect much circus or mania in this Gautier batch; just beautiful, polished, 1930s inspired designs.
