The Daily T LOunge for April 22, 2020

Posted on April 22, 2020

The Polynesian Tiki Bar and Lounge, NY, NY

 

Ooh, girl! Your manly hosts are gonna need a second here. We had one of those mornings where a million things need to happen and the universe conspired to make each task as difficult as possible. We are STRESSED and it’s barely 9 am!

We’re trying to set up this book promotion thingy, partnering with another site and trying to get everything coordinated behind the scenes (which required filling out multiple online forms and signing contracts and all that fun stuff no one ever realizes is a near-daily part of an independent blogger’s life) when our internet went down! Such fun!

Feh. We got it all sorted, but we’ve had a bad start. Hopefully your day started off a little better. Let’s dive in.

Is today’s lounge not spectacular? Someone order us a drink. We’re doing it Ina Garten style and declaring a pre-noon cocktail hour. Here are today’s distractions:

The epitome of the ‘Mad Men’ era, the sleek midcentury buildings of Park Avenue glimmer. Our critic strolls with the architect Annabelle Selldorf.

 

I Miss The Office
Close your eyes and imagine you’re in the office. Beautiful, right? Click all the things to turn them on.

 

Should Masks Be a Fashion Statement?
Capitalist opportunities often emerge from times of trauma. That doesn’t make the origin stories any less uncomfortable.

 

15 Stylish Movies With Costumes Made by Famous Designers
Over the years, several famous fashion designers have turned their hand to creating costumes. Christian Dior was among the first French couturiers to make his mark on Hollywood, dressing Marlene Dietrich for the silver screen back in the 1950s. Then there was Hubert de Givenchy, the man responsible for Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s,’ easily one of the chicest moments in movie history. More recently, Miuccia Prada designed the extravagant flapper-style party looks for Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ in 2013, while Raf Simons was invited by Luca Guadagnino to craft a sophisticated Milanese society wardrobe for ‘I Am Love.’ 

 

So. Did YOUR morning start off any better than ours?
