It’s been a bit of a crazy October- as it usually is. I can’t quite put my finger on what makes October the most amazing month for me, every single year of my life. It’s like life purposefully saturates October with friends, new experiences, joy, music, and a feeling of complete-ness. I spent the last few days in Istanbul- a city so unique I could probably only use my upcoming video about it to describe. It looks like Asia on one street, Barcelona on the other, India when standing on a bridge, Italy when on a boat. It’s insanely and beautifully cultural, exactly the way I like cities.

Stuart Weitzman.

I fell in love so deeply with Julia Restoin Roitfeld’s directorial debut “Rock Roll Ride” for Stuart Weitzman (watch here or above) featuring Poppy Delevingne and Dylan Penn that I had to share the love with you all. I actually sat behind Poppy on my flight from Milan to London last week and would be lying if I didn’t think it was super cool. Upgrade to business class and sit behind a supermodel? Deal, I’m in. These Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots literally do make you feel like a soft and delicate princess of the rock’n’roll era. As I walked around London, everybody was staring me up and down and giving me compliments. These boots do all the talking. You could wear them with a garbage bag and still look cool*.

It’s the most beautiful thing to me, how the summer slowly transforms into the autumn. How is it that the world becomes so, so beautiful right before it peaks into death for five (give or take) months? It’s like the universe teases us with beauty so rich that it has to deprive us for the next season. Unless you live in Mexico or something, then you lucky thing, you can enjoy summer all day every day. Goals.

Just prancing around beautiful Milan in Italian clothes and kilos of gelato in the system due to the insanely hot sun. I started this beautiful day in peace- walking around Corso Como and visiting the boutique in the photos above which I highly recommend. Part of me was dragging me to the park across the street, and oddly enough I must admit that sitting in the park with only nature in sight was one of the most sensational moments of my month. I never used to believe New-Yorkers who would say “you get sick of the city after a while and feel like you’re trapped, and all you want is to be in nature”. I’d be like “oh p-l-e-a-s-e.” It’s true though, their hips don’t lie. It’s amazing what five minutes on the grass, in nature can do to your day. Humans are beings of the wild, something in our hearts attracts us to the beach, to the forest, to primary values such as family and the comfort it brings. So it’s no wonder that in modern day society there’s so much anxiety and panic- we’re living in obverse conditions for extended periods of time. Don’t forget to get back to nature every once in a while, you won’t regret it.

After being a freak in the park I walked to the MSGM show and then straight after to the Au Jour Le Jour show, both of which were so cool. The Au Jour Le Jour print was decked out in sequinned sushi/maki decals and fruit prints, which I was totally swooning over. It’s an endlessly interesting experience to see how much New York, London and Milan fashion weeks are different. Paris the dream here. One day.. okay well one day after I thoroughly do some naturalistic rehabilitation.
