miss rachel had a stupendous birthday party, with a sweet theme, as usual: dress in one color ..which was so righteous+fotogenic, we all have decided should probably happen once a month, or until we run out of monochromatic options. there was wacky sting+balloons+color coded food+a lolli garden installation (which i would like to re-shoot cause the polaroids didn't do it justice)..
also i found out that papabubble might maybe host the afterparty for the COURT show?!?! (fingers crossed+i'll keep you posted).

bed stuy on high.

first barBq of the season was fittingly on tom mylan's roof. you may be familiar with his work. he's the famous butcher of brooklyn and part of the marlow posse.

(serious apologies from the crappy quality of these polaroids, xabi took his laptop to spain+i don't have the scanner software on mine..)

we were caught up in some magic and couldn't make it back until fridy.

we did everything there was to do..made the train, hit an orchard, seriously nailed it at the thrift stores (might have to do a post about that later), lunch with dad, drinks with a high school bestE, mad luck with radical radio play, drove around with the top down, stayed up later than intended, indulged in whiskey tumblers+slid across the floor in our socks, listened to crickets, found petticoats+basically all dreams fulfilled.

i mean, honestly, who wants to be wishyEwashE this time of year.
