I just thought I’d share a little accessorizing advice: when you wear a vest or blazer, a really nice embellishment is to take a pin (like the beetle below) and stick some masculine flowers or greenery under it. I found the flowers already fallen from a vine in Brooklyn, not even sure what they are! Any botanists out there?

Speaking of not knowing what things are… I arrived home to find the most enormous and gorgeous moth I had ever seen in person, just hanging out in my foyer. It was about 4 inches long! Any moth experts know what kind of creature this is? What an enchanted day…

• Update! I believe this moth is the Pandorus Sphinx (Eumorpha Pandorus).
