Séduisante, Naturellement

Suprise! I got to go on a private tour of Glamour magazine on Wednesday, at Conde Nast in the city. It was so amazing and ridiculously, well, glamourous. Thanks so much to everyone who I spoke with, and especially Lauren. You guys are great.


The fashion closet, a.k.a. my future apartment. I was seriously lusting some of them ivory strappy platforms. Wonder if they would have noticed if I had snatched a pair? I mean there are just so many...

Danny, one of the amazing interns. He works for both the fashion and arts departments, which makes him pretty much my hero. He also is rocking the jeans over leggings look, me likey.


An inspiration collage on the wall of one of the editor's offices. I spy Kate, Daria, Gwyneth...

My wonderfully sweet tour guide, Lauren (in the center) and two other interns. Lauren, fyi, is the assistant to Suze Yalof Schwartz, the fashion editrix of Glamour. They were so awesome about answering my millions of questions, we had quite a nice chat. Also, peep Lauren's shoes. I should've gotten a better picture of them, they were extremely rad.



Also, I have to thank Courtney, who helped organize this whole shebang- you're the best!

And now for a conversation I witnessed as I was waiting in the lobby of Glamour for Lauren before my tour started. Two girls met as they were waiting for the elevator. We were the ONLY three people in the entire lobby...

GIRL 1: Ohmygod, I have to tell you what I ate for lunch today
GIRL 2: What?
GIRL 1: I can't say it out loud, lemme text it to you (iphones are whipped out, texting ensues)
GIRL 2: (gasps, whispers) A Big Mac?
GIRL 1: Shhh! (glances over at me, glares) I told you not to say it out loud!

True story. Welcome to Bizzaro-World, kids...

You are killing me, you know that. I can't believe you were inside the "closet". I have dreams about that kind of stuff.
The "conversation" is like something out of The Devil Wears Prada, hilarious. xo

Wow, what an amazing experience you had! Are you going to be in intern there too? If so, then i'm super truper envious :)

I really had to LOL at that exchange between those silly girls. I used to always think girls who made such a fuss about food were only in fiction :P
