Happy Halloween!!

I know you need to find what you thought you left behind in a past life

I won't question why the only light that you have, you give away

She feels like, a stranger has come in the night,

Stolen her life, and left her with this.

The New York Times Op-Art Section is consistently one of my favorite sections. This gem is by Tucker Nichols.

Let us not forget that one-pieces have a long history of being useful, for people, working and doing their jobs, and not just for making it awkward for me to go the bathroom. Besides, he's working this look better than I could ever hope.

Maybe I'll go as International Klein Blue for Halloween. I just can't seem to get enough of it lately.



I love the layering, the prints, the attitude in that last photo. Also, let's add this to a running list of places that exist only for fashion editorials. What is this, an abandoned, fancy parking garage? An empty construction zone? Why is the light so white?

An editorial inspired by this "inspired" movie: Peau d'âne
Let's just say, if it were available on Netflix Instant, you know how I'd be spending my Friday night ;)

a 1:1 map

"To truly use the country as its own map, it turns out, involves weaving discomfiting images of the country directly into the fabric of the map. The result is not a tidy diagram of the world abstracted onto a blank slab—as nearly all maps since Mesopotamia have been—but rather a patchwork that chronicles, among many other things, the troubling process by which the map was composed."

I cannot stress enough how much I love the article from which this quote came. It's called The Grand Map, and it's by Avi Steinberg. The article includes references to Lewis Carroll, Borges, Google Maps, and you should go read it now! Love maps as much as I do! If you dare...
