ph. by me and Colin

Photos build up after a while. I still have whole folders of Tokyo photos to go through…anyway, here goes:

  1. 3 favorites – Claude Maus dress, Madame Hawke bustier, and Alexander Wang shorts
  2. from the opening of Noble Experiment..a pseudo-speakeasy downtown..I would have been sold on the chandelier and ceiling art (and the invitation – a golden skull of my own in a solid wooden box) alone but add a macabre wall of skulls and I may want to move in…oh and good drinks too
  3. Erin Wasson x RVCA leather one-piece..amazing for summer but it’s a bit too big on me..I tried to make this less obvious by contorting
  4. bored in the car by myself shot – Forever 21 cross and stud rings + old standby knuckle ring..shocking that I haven’t lost this yet what with how often I wear it and take it off in cars and by bathroom sinks…against a background of leopard tights and steering wheel
  5. I need to get a better shot of the Stevie jeans that Elizabeth and James sent me from their new Textile denim line…obsessed with the overdyed pockets and ’70s silhouette
  6. sunset + Camilla and Marc “Somewhere Sometime” dress…freezing…an exposed back and sides will do that I guess
  7. Chaser Collection tshirt borrowed from Kristin, Forever 21 necklace, gifted J Brand leggings, Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent zipper wedges
  8. my favorite candle line, Capri Blue, dominates my mantel..Volcano is my favorite..the huge gold mirror is one of my best thrift store finds of all time
  9. better shot of the skull ring that Leviticus sent me…hope my hands were clean
  10. navy blue water is as beautiful as it is scary
  11. stocking looks like I’m stealing but I’m not..backpacks just make everyone look suspicious
  12. I heavily abuse my center console..sorry, you’ll have to hold your drink..Danny Roberts‘ work graces both my iPod and my Macbook and jewelry litters my life
Enough dot dot dots to last a while (not promising the cessation of their use in the near future). I got some amazing news from my friend Mattias today, that I’m the first US blogger to hit 30,000 followers on Bloglovin! Thank you so much to everyone who visits this blog!xxx

(Topshop flute one shoulder dress, Armor Ume body chain, Jeffrey Campbell boots)

A dress this pretty needs some random accessorizing to make it feel That single sheer floaty sleeve kills me. Last time I wore it this was accomplished with a patent harness but this body chain that Sandee from Armor sent me is a clear upgrade, and not only because it lacks Velcro. The chains are thick and dark (sorry if it sounds like I’m talking about blood..and that you’re now thinking about blood) and the link sizes are varied four times over. That way it looks more like it came from medieval times, which is of course what we all want. Since a mithril vest is out of the question. Thank you Sandee, especially since I thought I had seen every last incarnation and limb usage possible in a body chain. I’m picturing it with a non-existent tank top and aviators next.

Had a couple photo shoots with Japanese magazines at my house this week..always fun to do anything with Japan even if it means frantically straightening the place so I don’t seem like a freak and coming up with 14 summer outfits when I’m still lingering on boots and thigh highs…that I’ll probably still be wearing well into summer. Cause making sense is no fun.

Kristin gave me a bottle of her new nail polish to play with. Following up winter’s poison-looking Dickweed is Jizz. Read more about it here, here, and here.

Also pictured: my new skull ring courtesy of Leviticus (better shots to come), Grey Ant Status shades, and Urbn headscarf.

Somebody asked me where my iPhone case is from – it’s the Incase Slider and I love it.

1. Lara Vincent headdress, vintage bags, belt, and necklace
2. Pamela Love x Zac Posen earrings + red velvet cupcake at Toast

Current favorite accessories. I picked up these earrings last week during a trip to Opening was a close call between them and a pair of exaggeratedly wide legged Chloe Sevigny x OC trousers but those were a bit too big at the waist so morning glory earrings it was. Now I’m only a possibly mismatched faux hair headband, an armor choker, and a swipe of orange-y lipstick away from the complete look. It’s good to have impossible dreams, don’t you think? And I figured my favorite clutch discovery of all time needed to be shown in a bit more detail..the funniest thing about it is that its pleather composition is offset by the most intricate distinct medallions that have some pretty good weight to them. It came with this horrible little thin strap that I hacked off as soon as something sharp presented itself and actually I’m now reminded that I wanted to replace it with a chain so I could wear it across the body. Mostly because round things are easier to lose than rectangular things.
