Today I Wear White


On a white day, we take a moment for quiet reflection. We think of the times that have passed and those that are still to come. We cleanse, we purify, and we seek to do better than we’ve done.

For me, a day of white reflection brings me closer to my family. In a time of twists and turns, I am blessed with a family whose love and support is constant and strong. I built this wonderland to bring joy to my fellow travelers, and I am so pleased that my family has given me the opportunity to share that joy with them. Likewise, this has been a year in which a dream team emerged in the 2L staff. Stephen, Ricky, and Becca make work days a pleasure and keep me from taking days off simply because I want to see them. Thank you, day of white, for reminding me who my loved ones are, what my wonderland is, and how to find my smile everyday.

Today, I wear white.

My Chucks Went to the Pompidou


The Chucks belonging to Rachel and Littlest Lowe Adam pounded Parisian pavement this summer. Where did your Chucks take you?

Click on more photos to see what kind of adventures Rachel & Adam had, and email with your summer Chuckin’ adventures so that we can feature them here!

And P.S. Happy Birthday, Dad! Thanks for taking me to Paris and joining me for all those late-night gelato walks! xoxo, rachel

Steal His Shirt


When Danny and our model friend Salome Steinmann got together for an impromptu photo shoot, they both went straight to the same Steven Alan shirt. It’s Danny’s favorite summer shirt, and Salome didn’t mind stealing it from him. So, boys & girls, feel free to share with each other! Steven Alan button downs are the perfect token of generosity, whether you’re buying them for yourself or for the boy you hope to steal them from!

More Than Just a Louis Vuitton Bag


Friends, we’ve observed the requisite mourning period, and we’re now ready to talk about it.

This week on Top Chef, our dear Arnold Myint met an untimely elimination. After yelling at our television, we contented ourselves with the fact that Arnold did exactly what he had set out to do. He added panache and a hint of Myint to every challenge he faced, never compromised himself, took home a challenge victory, and surely proved that he is “more than just a Louis Vuitton bag.” And here’s the best part: even though he’s packed his Louis knife bag, we can still keep him in the game. For the time being, we can make like Tom & Padma and visit PM, Cha Chah, and Suzy Wong’s to judge for ourselves. Then, when the time comes to vote for Fan Favorite, we can all rally behind Arnold to make him the fan’s choice.

You’ll always be our top chef, Arnold!!!

We’re All Famous


As he skyrockets to fame on this season of Bravo’s Top Chef, dear friend Arnold Myint is taking us with him! Arnold teaches the public more about him with his photo diary on, and he of course includes a stop at two elle to catch up with Rachel and the latest supply of Steven Alan bow ties.

We suggest you tune in Wednesday nights to watch Arnold in all his glory. This week, for example, he stirred up a little drama, earned his team a foodie win, and sported a Modern Amusement v-neck sweater courtesy of yours truly. Keep winning, Arnold!
