Who’s That Girl?

alexandra wrote glitter ballet flats diamonds soles of her shoes

I’m a fourth generation Angeleno.


I was in the circus once. For a day. With unicorns. I was 8. It was magical.**

I have 11 grandparents. None are in the circus. Unless you consider Hollywood a circus, in which case I come from a circus family.

I believe you can find inspiration anywhere, but I think Slim Aarons, Noël Coward, and Diana Vreeland are a fabulous place to start.

When I was I younger, I planned on getting married in college and raising Greenwich Village babies while working on screenplays adapted from short stories I’d penned for The New Yorker.

We make plans and the gods laugh.

I’m a writer and photographer living in Los Angeles but who lives for New York. I subscribe to The New Yorker.

I write about film, fashion, fotos, food allergies, French bulldogs, freelancing – and those are just the f – words.

*I still can’t figure out how they affixed the horns on the horses. Circus magic? Gorilla Glue?

      If only the world looked like a Slim Aarons photos. His colors were incredible! I’m not sure if they still do, but HD Buttercup used to sell great prints of his work. Really great, large scale images. Not sure who the vendor was.
