Got a change of scenery with a little stay away at Lafayette House. I love how low maintenance this place is - it feels like you’ve got your own apartment in a fancy French building. Sometimes I miss living downtown over the bridge, it was nice to be able to walk to some of our favorite Manhattan restaurants and my art supply store is also just around the corner. Having a working fireplace in this cold weather is a pretty nice touch, too. Teresa came by to shoot with Andrew; Lizzie did hair and makeup. Teresa reminds me of a baby Charlotte Rampling so I dressed her up in clothes that you’d want to wear around your own quiet Paris pied-à-terre. Lace, satin, slouchy knits and pants optional in a place with strange old photos on the walls and a giant bubble bath tub with shiny brass knobs.
