Rumi Neely x RVCA Machinery Dress
Second time ever in a tanning booth..these things freak me out. But they also look awesome.
The pieces I designed for RVCA are out! The Machinery dress is a tribute to Milla Jovovich’s bandage gear in The Fifth Element and the Triad tank is an extremely generously cut and wearable basic. Check them both out on RVCA’s site here – they’ll also be available at Bloomingdale’s and Pacific Sunwear. Thank you to everyone at RVCA who was involved in this collaboration, it’s such an honor to be part of the RVCA family…the way Pat brings together creative people from so many different walks of life is inspiring.

One of my all time favorite thrifted sweaters. Sorry for the smugface, it’s more of a grimace due to almost breaking myself leaping onto this strangely rock hard “couch”. Sometimes you just expect a little more give. I know I’ve posted this sweater before a couple times but I’m just really excited about my new toy the pseudo-Polaroid Fuji Instax. Bought after giving up on finding un-expired Polaroid 600 film and being hit with a grim sold out on all fronts situation at The Impossible Project. I took a few of Chris at various angles and advised him to write his number on them and hand them out like credit card-sized photographic candy to females preceding the exchange with a “You’re welcome”, but his hidebound scope prevented him from seeing this plan through. Ok maybe I give really bad advice (this). OR it would have been an effective way to sift through those unequipped with a sense of humor. Whichever. People are way too on guard anyway. Including me. So, in summary, I have led you in a pointless circle. Sorry about that. But yes I like my new camera.

I have an issue with very low prioritization when it comes to denim..all my shorts are gross cut up things from the thrift store and I can’t remember the last time I tried on some high-end jeans. Most of the time when I find myself wanting new jeans I just ‘customize’ my existing pairs, which rarely ends up right and leaves me with less than I had to begin with. But somehow when I ordered these jeans online a few months ago they slid on perfectly upon arrival. Weird. I wore this out to sushi and magazine stand-ing and then shopping.
