Happy Birthday Suzan!! It would be sooo lovely to be able to celebrate with you today, but alas, here I am and there you are. So, what's better than being able to run around the streets together eating cake and laughing like mad women? Some virtual presents, of course, courtesy of the world wide web and especially the AnotherMag blog, which always posts pretty things.
So, my dream bday wishes for you go something like this: a trip to the recently opened Margiela flagship store in Beijing, where we'd take a swoosh down the "Slippery Dip" slide .... polishing off a big box of La Duree macarons ...then gossiping the day away in this fantastic japanese cherry blossom treehouse – which actually exists, somewhere in Milan! Or rather – it will exist in 60 years time, when the 10 trees have grown sufficiently and are bent and pruned into shape – hence its name, The Patient Gardener. Finally, let's not forget a cuff or two from Pamela Love, because hey, every birthday is nicer with just a little bit of bling.
