My daughter has accepted a college in California. After a seemingly never-ending winter in Andover, Massachusetts, she wants a break from New England. I think she also wants a break from what she has always known- East Coast private schools. When I tell friends where she has decided to go, I get one of two reactions– “I’m jealous, always wanted to live in California” or “that’s so far away”. I’m in the second camp, it is far away, and that makes me sad.
However, I have a ton of friends in Los Angeles. While out there last weekend, we hit The Brentwood Country Mart with Agnes Baddoo. Such a great spot– we popped into Kendall Conrad’s shop, found a prom dress at Calypso, and ate a delicious lunch at Farmshop. Then, the agent and t.v. producer, Michael Flutie, took us to dinner at Salt Air on Abbot Kinney in Venice and pitched an interesting project.
A project that I assume will take me to L.A. often.
Proof that it’s a small world– Michael Flutie was Kendall Conrad’s agent when she was a model, I booked Kendall for a Helmut Newton shoot for Vogue through Michael…Love This, On My Mind
