mussed up

(Kain shirt, vintage zipper skirt, shrug, and necklace, Chloe shoes)

I swear this skirt was the find of a lifetime. Months after purchasing it, I’m still shocked that it was actually my size. Do you like my Proenza/Dellal hair? Sometimes I have a little too much fun in the studio – today it was blasting Britney and Rise Against while integrating props and flipping my locks about. So don’t worry, I’m TOTALLY kidding, this is not my new look. But how much would those weird round sunglasses that Jack and Lazaro sent down the runway on Raquel enhance? At least 5%.

Glove love?

And I want to thank everyone again for the amazing, lovely, hilarious, heartwarming comments from the last post..thank you thank you thank you.

I took a break to immerse myself wholeheartedly in real life for the past few days. I’m not quite sure what it is about me that makes people feel so strongly, but my blog and my life are going to go in whatever direction that I feel like taking them. I’m never really quite sure what the point is when people say they wish I would dress a certain way or go back to something I was doing before, mostly because it implies that I should be consciously styling myself in a way to please them and just trash whatever feels natural to me at the moment, rendering my blog absolutely pointless. If you think I dress/look/act like a coke whore then surely you can seek fulfillment elsewhere on the internet. I party, I cry, I laugh, I contemplate the validity of leather pants, I take too long to call my parents back, I fight with my boyfriend, I wish I was two inches taller, I cut my own hair, I watch Heroes while snuggling my kittens, I think Michael Showalter is a genius, I constantly wriggle my toes, I’ve read everything Tolkien and Dahl about a thousand times, I love the sound of riding the train in Tokyo and the feeling of getting into a warm car, I sit on the beach and stare at the ocean almost every day, I wear short skirts…I am a normal person for everything weird and un-weird that I do. I am not a role model. Take it or leave it.

Thank you to all my readers for your sweet/hilarious/amazing/constructively critical/insightful words. Seriously.

+ a few things that I’ve been pondering

  • I am in love with Eugenie Niarchos’ earrings she designed for Repossi
  • I finally scored a pair of Sam Edelman’s Balenciaga knockoffs…ultimate boot
  • seeking gloves/gauntlets/wristguards/whatever
  • congratulations to Alex Wang on winning the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award..and check out Alice Dellal in THE dress
  • vintage Moss is the best Moss
  • loving the Rodarte inspiration going on for Topshop ss09 documented by Susie Bubble
  • but first must come the leather shorts
  • the most perfect head accessory I’ve ever seen, from The Face magazine

Kristin and I headed to West Hollywood Tuesday night to celebrate Paris’ Nylon cover at Foxtail. I broke out my maybe favorite vintage dress that I finally got hemmed and definitely favorite boots. Check out the Cobrasnake for more, and a huge thank you to Val and Kristin for taking so many photos. Check out my camera in action here.

(most clothing is vintage/secondhand, gray and black jackets from Forever 21, white tshirt by Kain, shoes by Bebe, Emma Cook, and Jessica Simpson)

Well we obviously overdid it and had a ridiculously fun time running around the Pacific Coast Highway and taking pictures of each other. Whenever I post Kristin’s pictures people command her to blog, and she has finally fulfilled your desires. And say hi to my self-appointed “grandfather”. Since not mentioning them is probably awkward, yes we are wearing coon tail hats. We found them in a crappy little store, and there were two of them lurking in bins. Destiny, obviously.

(yes that says roast beef)

I met up with Kristin today and we did about 10 minutes worth of shopping and 2 hours worth of photo taking. She egged me on document the innards of my bag, and I retaliated by shooting her wrists. I really didn’t mean for that sentence to sound so graphic. But here you go.
