Maison Martin Margiela Meets Maison Champs-Elysees.

I was already mad for Maison Martin Margiela's tape blazer—my girl Cancansoo has the sweatshirt version—so I was tickled pink (or white, considering this is Margiela) when the fabulous T. Silver sent out word that the reclusive designer is revamping Parisian hotel Maison Champs-Elysees.

Located at the most desirable intersection of Paris (avenue Montaigne + Grand Palais + rond-point des Champs Elysees), the luxe estate is nestled in Maison de Centraliens, a well-known historic building in the City of Lights.

For this project, the designer is bringing together "reality and trompe l-oeil", a mix that is hard for me to picture at the moment but can't wait to see.

Monsieur Margiela, I'm ready to check in.

I'm Lovin' it: The colour scheme of the Delfina Delettrez boutique in Rome matches the pillows on my couch! Yup, Delfina and I are on the same wavelength.

I'm Over it: I shouldn't be complaining about this, but I've been getting a whole bunch of packages full of chocolate and other sugary goodies. So not good for my waistline. Mainly because I have no self-control when it comes to glucose.

Oh yeah, and I really wish I was able to be on the Gansevoort Hotel rooftop during Art Basel in Miami for the Refinery29 and Art + Culture Editions 'Double Vision Showcase'. Wah.

Music of the Day: "Deserter" by Matthew Dear. Hazy, electronic vocals. The instrumentals are the focal point here—it's what I hear first listening to the track, anyway—which I quite like.
