I’ve worn this dress so much that what used to be a full bib of sequins gave way and I just tore them all out. Scissors and razor blades solve a lot of my wardrobe problems.

Obviously these are from Tokyo. There are no magical tunnels of blue light in California. Or are there? Anyway, I love you old ragged dress but I think it’s time for me to buy some new clothes.

Late afternoon coffee run and a smushy jacket from…which, I’m sorry, is impossible to navigate. I recommend looking through it via Polyvore if you actually want to find anything.

Some thrift store finds are a little more grossly perfect than others..this loincloth/belt (see it more clearly here) is starred up, studded up, and double belted up. And it cinches in tightly at the high waist where nothing ever fits me. Quadruple win. One of my friends is convinced it’s a cropped single thigh chap (questionable singularization acknowledged) for the burlier cowboy. But the minimal sense this makes fades the more you try to conceptualize it logically. So loincloth it is. Then again this is the same man that asked me today what kind of berry gatherer I would be…”Would you pluck them individually? Or bunched? Why did I ask, you would pick each single morsel and place it in your satchel. You should do a shoot with cavemen.” Prompted by me telling him how much of a relief it is to be free of corrective lenses so that were I to be suddenly time warped to the Neolithic I wouldn’t be the weak myopic one in the tribe. Since you were wondering. And I know you weren’t. Worn with tshirt dress I never knew what to do with before, second day hair, my most beaten up bag, and a magical double shadow in a crazy crosswalk the earth is determined to split open.

By the way some of you have noticed I’ve been posting some odd photos here and there was the closest thing to a New Year’s Resolution that I had to start taking more pictures…I used to screw around with photography and sort of stopped for no reason at all. It’s felt kind of good to play around with it again. But of course Colin’s photos will continue to reign..we tend to have very different takes on the same situation and his will to experiment with photography as far as his mind will take him has never ceased to amaze me.

Sometimes the most awkward situations come from taking photographs in random places..some drunk guy came up to inspect what we were doing and proceeded to offer up his dog as a prop. Declined. But the dog was pretty cute.

This dress is one of my favorite pieces in my closet – the layers of jersey and silk somehow go perfectly with both motorcycle boots and the highest heels. I got it in New Zealand (seriously this is unintentionally becoming a catch phrase here) at Black Box, one of the only boutiques I’ve ever been in where I’ve wanted most everything. I’ve tried to track down places that stock Claude Maus in the US and gotten nowhere. Oh well. And this jacket is rad for having zippered removable sleeves..I wasn’t really in the market for a suede vest but it should be fun to play with come Spring.

Happy 2010! I was going to get all sequined up but then lost the motivation and ended up dressing more for comfort than anything else. Which included swiping Colin’s jacket for the night. I’ve been looking for a slightly more fitted version of it for myself forever now to no avail.

Thank you to Planet Blue for sending me this Soixante Neuf hammered knuckle ring – it got a redesign courtesy of one of their buyers and I love the result. Better shots of it on the way.
