Hot Mess

I have a great friend who uses the term Hot Mess pretty frequently -- whether it's a party at the ZaZa, a patron at Bar A, or just a "situation" that has the community talking. It never fails to make me laugh. So I headed over to Urban Dictionary to get the low down on this slangy slang.


Someone or Something that is such a mess... the level of it, is off of the charts. It's past pathetic, past pitiful. It's to the point you almost have to walk away to keep from bustin a gut. Hot messes can exist in levels.

i.e. Hot Mess, Hot Fuckin Mess
Oh my God, y'all a HOT MESS!

My point here, and I do have one, is that we still start instituting a HOT MESS section on this blog, presided over by a guest editor with immaculate standards and a keen social eye. Check back soon!

Speaking of Shiny Objects

I am obsessed, OBSESSED, with the designs of Cuban-American shoe designer Alejandro Ingelmo. Everything is shiny and metallic, from high-top sneakers through loafers. I've been tracking him via and for months. And I'm not the only one: In 2008, he was tapped as a finalist for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award.

See what the experts have to say here.

Dude is amazing.

Sorry, We're Open

At long last, I have returned to the blogosphere after a self-imposed exile. I really can't tell you what to expect in this space as I have zero attention span and am easily distracted by shiny objects. What I can tell you is that I intend to report on classic rock, the 300 Workout, container gardening, YSL sales, mall parties, bad architecture and people who are smarter and more creative than I am who make me furious.
