A New Take on Skinny


Picture: Skinny Jim by George Condo. What do you all think of the outlandish skinny Jim? He looks hilariously mad and trendy with all those colourful dots. I think what he's wearing is a brilliant ensemble for Paris fashion week ( including facial expression and headwear). Regular readers know how terribly idiosyncratic I can be.

Travelling to Frankfurt this week. Let's see if I manage to make it to the opening of the George Condo exhibition at the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, Germany. Schedule is quite full for this trip, but a girl is never too busy for a spot of vintage shopping, a relaxing facial in the Babor Spa, Luftansa senator lounge, and drinks with happy friends. Looking forward to luncheon with the Editor in Chief of Kids Life Magazine, the delightful Martina Voigt

Life is about enjoying things. Go out this weekend, eat with a friend, have a cup of hot chocolate, sit quietly and dream, cook something delicious, but don't forget to share with those you love. xx

  21. You just won my respect even more ;) You are a girl after my own heart I think! I couldn't agree more about Skinny Jim & fashion week. Also I would love little more than to join you for a relaxing facial and drinks :)

  26. Jim is not that skinny! He must be enjoying his life a lot and some beer too (by looks of his belly!)
