What I Bought! With Marie Claire's Kyle Anderson

(NEW YORK) Kyle Anderson isn't slowing down anytime soon! The latest proof? Dinner with a buzzy mod on Friday and a lavish shopping trip on Saturday. All in all, Marie Claire's accessory director dropped $1,416.49 buckaroos this week, increasing his total weekend spending (save for a holiday weekend or two; logging expenditures like this is tough work!) to $45,343.92 for the past four months. Of course, that's not counting the 10,153 euros he shelled out during Paris Fashion Week. Try to keep up, darlings.
After work, I had planned on having dinner with my friend, model Andrej Pejic, who just got back to town from some jobs in Paris. I had been craving sushi all day. I walked to Nobu a couple of blocks from my office with Andrew, the PR manager at Elle, who also works in my building, and we met Andrej. We had a couple of different kinds of sushi rolls and miso soup. I had a Bloody Mary. (Nobu's midtown location has the best Bloody Mary! They're really spicy!) Since nobody wanted dessert except me, I didn't get one. Luckily, we all split the bill. Afterward, I walked home and stopped at Baskin-Robbins across the street from my apartment to buy some chocolate peanut butter ice cream before watching some reality TV and going to bed.
DINNER, NOBU: $87
DESSERT, BASKIN-ROBBINS: $4.50
I slept in, then went to Starbucks for my usual chai iced latte. I walked from my house to Around the World to stock up on Vogue Paris and Harper's Bazaar UK, two of my favorite magazines that I buy every month. Then I walked to Bergdorf Goodman and got my hair cut at the John Barrett salon by Katsu before trekking over to the men's store across the street, where I bought a Luis Morais bracelet for my boyfriend; his bracelet broke about six months ago, and he talks about it all the time. I'm not ready to give up the Shamballa bracelet I bought in Paris quite yet, but this one is similar to mine with black wood beads and a black diamond cross. Now we have almost-matching bracelets!
Later, I went to Barneys and I didn't find anything. Same with Prada; nothing since last week! So there was only one thing to do: Go back to Starbucks for an iced coffee, walk home, and take a nap. As I was waking up, my friend came over, and we had another iced coffee on my balcony. (Caffeine kick!) And then I watched some TV as I got ready for dinner. My boyfriend and I go to dinner every Saturday together, and we hadn't been to Houston's or Hillstone or whatever it's called now for maybe six months. It used to be my obsession! I suggest their amazing veggie burger. Anyway, we took a taxi to 26th Street and Park Avenue South, and made a detour to stop by the Hurricane Club. My boyfriend had never been, so we decided to go there for dinner instead. We both ordered appetizers, my boyfriend got a steak, and I had the fried calamari salad. For dessert? We both had chocolate cake. I also had two coconut tropical drinks that were pretty amazing. At home, we watched the beginning of some movie on AMC and fell asleep.

I woke up, had a Starbucks, and went to the gym. I sort of "ran" about three miles-ish, then watched the first part of some Indiana Jones movie when I got home; I fell asleep halfway through, woke up, and got ready to meet my friends at the Boom Boom Room for drinks. We had mojitos, but I didn't pay. We went to dinner at The Standard Grill. I had a burger and a Penny Drop (or three!). Still didn't foot the bill! I finished my weekend watching the Mad Men season premiere.
COFFEE, STARBUCKS: $4.50
