50s Educational Video with Amy Sedaris
Strike a Pose?
After reading this, I guess I’m going to need all the help I can get. I wish Sassy had been a part of my generation. I was stuck with shitty teen mags that focused on giving bedroom eyes to the guy sitting next to you in class. For one, I was 13 and didn’t particularly care at the time. For two, I went to an all-girls school. For three — oh it’s not even worth it...
Some food for thought: as liberal and open the internet can be, it can and will be standardized and owned by either Apple or Google. Hmm. This has already happened in radio and telecommunications. Is there such a thing as “Net Neutrality”? (Sorry to get all non-fashiony and pretentious on you guys, but I’m writing a paper on the internet and blogs, and it’s something to...
A flu has left me bedridden all day, unable to do anything but read? Best thing for a headache? I am fresh out of David Sedaris books to make me grin, but I started this Vonnegut lovely in between naps and coughing up a lung.
DANCE DANCE DANCE
Sorry for the video overload, but for serious, dancing is essential, you guys. I am no smooth dancer myself, so I am taking dancing lessons via YouTube. Promising, for sure. Scour the interwebs for classic dance lessons and you can find the ultimate in practice material: i) Cosby Show dance-off ii) Youtube lessons in breakdancing (can I get a “SAY WHAT?!”) iii) ELIZABETH!! iv) Mr....

Giving my Brain a Break with Bad Ideas.
I’m in a wee bit of bad mood right now. Do you want to know what that means? Instead of posting about GOOD things, I am going to post about a BAD thing. You might want to sit down (as if you can’t see the photos). Labels, all over clothing. TOMMY tube top. There were many great things that came out of the 90s (any blogger today can tell you that), but what about this bad idea: ...
It’s a beautiful day in my neighbourhood… Be my neighbour? (I swear I don’t always give off Cousin Itt vibes.) Or follow me on twitter?
To the End of the Alley
These are the last shots with Samia. It was lovely scouring the entire metropolis with her and stumbling upon little things like someone (still a mystery to us despite our efforts to climb up to the roof) spraypainting right above us. I would like to imagine that our snapping complemented the soft whistling emanating from the spray cans.
Here is Part 1 of the Series I was talking rambling about yesterday. Samia is just a ball of energy, and despite the fact that we were both stressing over school and deadlines, we had quite a bit of fun. [And yes, I coordinated my hair with Samia’s jacket and that random green door we found.] Saddies :(
Old Blue Eyes.
I guess the red and green color combination seemed appropriate for the impending holiday season, that is, unless your city has already been conquered by tinsel and colorful lightbulbs. But here’s the seasonal catch: summer photo memories! And my friend’s deep, beautiful blue eyes coming to light, so to speak. Looking at this shot, and remembering summer shoots, I can only notice how...
I seem to be missing a couple of posts as of late? I am not sure how/why this happened, but I am looking into it. It seems as though my posts on summer were the ones that disappeared? I guess this means that summer is officially over…
I recently came across these Jay Howell x Lifetime Collective tees, and they are wonderful: the cotton feels beautiful, the off-white color, and the neons really piqued my interest. And Jay Howell’s drawings are pretty wicked — they’re these whimsical little dudes straight out of a twisted children’s storybook drenched in enough color to dull any rainbow, or rival any...
RUN, KATE! RUN!
I have always loved the backstage delights of runway shows…only those from the 90s; today’s “behind the scenes” feel so staged. I remember, as a child, watching Tim Blanks interview designers amidst extreme chaotic conditions that we no longer witness today. This video, for instance, just warms me up: John Galliano just getting Kate pumped for a nice dramatic spring down...

You can take away my sweats, but you can never take away my oversized jeans!! ** heels — obviously NOT.
With his Spring Summer 2010 entitled, “Social Signs,” Baptiste Viry offers a new take on social symbols and the values we place on our clothing. His acute attention to detail and construction in his ties, uniform hats and jewelry deliver a poignant message that crosses not only gender boundaries, but the social and temporal as well. Through his timeless accessories, he tricks the eye – and we...
