dress up+bro down

the purge party was a success, not a smash $uccess-but surely+truely a divine time for all who came...ginger cocktails, banter, trading, bestowing, buying, bowls, + dried cherries...
many more fotos to show you..but not, all you get is this darling foto of my lady bringing the whiteheat of whitelightning to east billyburg..
apologies for the lack of fotos--you'll have to subsist on lots of virtual besos, for now..(you see, this was shot on mi senor's fancy pants camera+not my simple point+shoot, as it's still broken:(.. +well-it takes longer to upload+whatnot..)+i gotta go to bed as i got a wicked pinched nerve in my back 2 days ago+early flight out.
going to georgia manana for my mum's birthday+a visit with my grandfather+relatives+little lucas!..i'll be shooting loads of polaroids. hopefully, i'll show you some when i get back.
p.s. i might shoot some kinda shotgun this weekend--stay tuned.

underground at the tribeca grand.

i finally picked up the moschino vintage top at the post office (which took an hour+a half!! i'm just saying-there should really be a better system..6 windows with 3 people working+a line out the door/sheesh)..anyhoo, i wore it to the samantha pleet party (which morphed into the surface to air party) with a faux fur vest by phamous+ yellow h+m skinny's+ vintage combat boots...a comfy+fun outfit for what turned into a wild ride of a night.

brimming with possible side effects.

the kiosk/slow+steady wins the race event was great.
i don't think i've ever been to a fashion event so overflowing with nice.
the great shoes, sweet pinatas, mirrored balloons and sublime spread of cakes, only accentuated the awesomeness of so many pretty+well mannered folks.

*happy valentines day*

you need to have a can do attitude.

primarily a phenomenal run.

spotted these on bryan boy and was instantaneously obsessed..they are limited edition dr.martens "primary pascal 8 eye boot" far as i can tell they are only at oki-ni in england...i haven't jumped on the resurgence yet, as i found my perfect combat boots thrifting in new mex..but these, well..i am into every color.
oi vey..can the recession be over? can i get a sponsor?
shoes will bury me alive.

and you will know us by the trail of shoes

new wave cinderella

spilled beer, teal crinoline, chanel booties+a washcloth...dynamite

cold flowers in her hair.

full disclosure: i spent a good chunk of high school as a neo-hippy deadhead..jammin' out to bootlegs of the grateful dead's epic live, while i no longer rock handmade calico+cordouroy backless tops+have little to no interest in listening to 15 minute meandering songs, i still hold a deep+loving affinity towards jerry+the crew. this video is from a 1969 playboy channel live show with a little convo btw sir garcia+senor hefner, 2 amazing pop icons..i figured now would be a good time to post this, as i think the GD is in a midst of a hardcore resurgence, i've heard songs featured on playlists in shops+cars on both coasts.
