BIRTHDAY

James Andrew

James Andrew


October twelfth finds me once again celebrating a birthday! Generally birthdays put me into a reflective mood –– this year was no exception –– and so a quiet celebration in the city and at home with my beloved Scott McBee was just the thing. Who knows, a more lively celebration might be in order soon, but today was perfect for a bit of introspection. I do find that a birthday is a good time to take stock of the past, to shrug off any psychic baggage one might unwittingly be carrying, and then (and always from a position of gratitude I might add) one can really clarify one’s hopes and aspirations, redefining one’s dreams and most outrageous fantasies!

Of course, it wasn’t all quiet meditation! Among other activities, we had a superb feast thanks to my friend, chef Alex Hitz and his fabulous recipes. Our menu:

For our photo, I’m channeling a mix of Walter Albini and Baron Alexis de Rede for my brand of over-the-top fabulousness. I’m sporting a highland fling version of “black tie ”with a Tom Ford era Gucci dinner jacket in black wool with black velvet buttons and trim, Tom Ford pale green tuxedo shirt and black silk bow tie and cummerbund, black watch tartan wool pants by Paul Smith, Tom Ford era Gucci black patent leather opera pumps (not shown), Seaman Schepps evening set comprised of sapphires surrounded by diamond baguettes, and my fragrance is the very elegant Creed Imperial. Oh and of course an outrageous vintage feather mask.

    A RARE Bird of Paradise…elusive, lives only at the highest point in the thinnest of air where most perish, and rarely seen but in images and written of in tales of legendary lore. Happy Birthday to a fine feathered friend.xo
