then i went to paris!! we got a hook-up hotel vendom, which was beautiful. it was right next to the ritz, and colette and what not. colette was filled with new york stuff, MOB, kid american club, alife, weirdo daves new “fuck this life”, tim barbers tv books series and herons “young and the banging”. it was rad to see my friends work being drooled over by people in another country.

we saw the patrick demarchelier exhibit at the petit poulet which ruled my universe. ironic the same exact day alicia was in new york doing the nails for a french vogue editorial he was shooting.

then had afternoon tea and treats at laduree, which has been there since 1862. i wish these were in color. the pinks and reds were so beautiful.

treats

the next night we went to this great restaurant called ferdi. i mean, being on vacation with the most beautiful set of sisters didnt make me feel fat or ugly at all.

after we went to the plaza athenee for raspberry champaign. saving up my birthday money was a good idea cuz i would have had to beg for day old baguettes considering an american dollar is chump change most everywhere else in world.

we took a french tourism bus to see versailles. there was a jeff koons exhibit which was insane. i took a bunch of digital photos of the insides, but let me tell you, seeing marie antoinette’s bedroom filled with koon’s pool floaties was pretty radicool

i found a damn kitten in the gardens and carried it around in my jacket all day cuz it was like 27 degrees. i figured i was in france, everything is probably clean there, and if i were to get kitten aids the french kind couldnt be that bad
