Audrey, my new Prada glasses I couldn’t resist getting after hosting an event at ILORI, on a favorite cake plate (that I just knocked off of the table and broke as I typed this — thankfully there are more at World Market — oy!) and a lion-adorned clutch from Nila Anthony that came as a surprise in the mail yesterday (and which I will probably accidentally spill red wine on tonight).
