01:03 pm - Current heat index: 98 degrees
The subject line is not a typo.

However, let us not dwell. For reasons slightly unclear to me, my earworm for the last two days hasn't been a song but instead a soundbite: Andre Leon Talley in the film of The September Issue, saying, "It is a FAMINE of BEAUTY, honey."

It kind of is, here in my Livejournal. And because I must away to write, clean, and then venture out of my house into the hideous steamy heat, I will offer two Beautiful Images.

One is blogger Shini Park of Park and Cube, wearing my ideal of transitional autumn wear. (Confession: I have a complicated relationship with tartan, in that I always want to wear it but the only items I've ever had were scratchy or unflattering or both. Someday I will own Vivienne Westwood tartan clothing, but that day is not today.) Anyhoo, gorgeous sweater! Tartan trousers! London background! There we go.

Two is this Evening Standard magazine interview/photoshoot of Tom Hiddleston, dressed as Edward Peel. No, seriously, the car, the poloneck, the patterns -- totally Edward Peel. So there's a double delight in the photographs for me. :)

Happy Saturday to you all, and may you celebrate beauty however you define it!

Perhaps I need DOUBLE the cooling breezes for looking at Mr Hiddleston in that shoot. ;)

Cheers and hugs, L!

Yeah, it's 90 degrees here today. And today I bought another coat (it was Coldwater Creek! Suede! Fifteen dollars! How could I NOT?)...

Someday I may even get to wear it! :)

Hugs and happy Saturday!

I have EVERY SYMPATHY with such impulse purchases. And with Too Much Heat in October!

[hugs] Have a great evening!

Oh, goodness; we had grey and drizzly today, but despite the gloom I prefer it to subtropical shenanigans. !

Tartan can be challenging; I reckon you'd rock a kilt, however.

Well, you know I'm odd -- I almost always prefer grey and drizzly. :)

HUGS HUGS, and I am sending all the good thoughts you can handle. I hope you have a good Sunday, H_P.

He totally looks like Edward Peel should. Hope it cools off for you soon.

It's so pleasing to see what Edward Peel would look like. [beams]

Your earworms are much more elegant that mine.

My current one is Alice Cooper- a couple of his songs were in the soundtrack of a movie I watched last night and he's been stuck in my head ever since.

Lovely images.

Heee, now I'll be earwormed with "School's Out" for the rest of the night! :))

Hugs and thanks, S! Happy evening to you!
