dream collection: stella mccartney resort 2013

I can only hope that this is what the future looks like. That this is what I will be wearing in 2013. Because it is great. Let's all take note of the lack of the color black in my sartorial tendencies.... who have I become?


vice quotes #8

"When nerds gave up pocket protectors and became greasy metalheads we picked up their glasses and went, “Hey, these are awesome!” Now the nerds are pissed (cue Nelson Muntz)."


modern girl

Happy makes me a modern girl...

Hunger makes me a modern girl...

Anger makes me a modern girl...

My whole life was like a picture of a sunny day.

only ever fantasies

Maybe to eulogize an experience is to kill it. Or maybe the romance of time and a place can only exist in the aestheticized telling of it just as the better versions of ourselves are only ever fantasies. - Rhona Cleary


Inspirational Message:

I have had this saved in my drafts of unpublished posts for a while but was waiting for the right time to publish, a day when I really needed it. I know I will need it again one day, so don't be surprised if you see it again, sooner rather than later. But I need this today:

When you think you just can't, you just can. Nathaniel Russell... again.

"are you somnambulant?"

Style, I think, is panache. Who are you? What did you do today? And what are you worth to me? What do you have to offer the world? How did you spend your time today on this planet? How are you spending your time every second? What are you doing now? Are you alive, or are you somnambulant? If you are somnambulant, then you are a fucking prick. Style is your ability to be awake. But who the fuck am I to judge? I'm starting to get really arrogant. - Tom Hardy

a little lank likes lurking in libraries

You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. - Ray Bradbury


vice quotes #7

"No, just candy for my diabetes. Oh, yeah, I’m diabetic. If you do not complicate your existence, fuck, life is worth shit. I won’t be long, hang in there."


jil sander veiled beanie

So this happened a few seasons ago at Jil Sander and I loved it! Then recently while packing, I came up with an equally high/low hat-fashion that I want to make happen: the turban baseball hat. It's going to be popping up everywhere soon, son.

Leavin' the nest...

Did you know that there is a nest in the wisteria on our back porch and in that nest there are four baby robins? The momma and papa spend all day long flying back and forth with worms and wild blackberries and other delicious morsels for them. If you come right when they are being fed, you can hear their tiny baby bird voices and see their big round heads and tiny beaks open wide. We named them Horace, Henrietta, Hamish and Hortencia. They will leave soon, but it makes our home feel even more like a home with them around.
