I'm driving back to Connecticut this Sunday to catch up with my family before heading into New York for the launch party for Rue's third issue. Please flip through the issue if you haven't done so already; I know I'm biased but it's truly the best one yet. Pay special attention to the pieces on Brooke Giannetti, Margot Austin, Susanna Salk, and Jim Josephson and Erik Retzer — written by yours truly! I can't wait to celebrate with Crystal, Anne, Bri, and the gang at The New Traditionalists' showroom come Monday night. Will I be seeing any of you there?
