Every Woman was once a little girl with Dreams

The things we do in college. S&M clubs, bands, parties, and student films. In honor of this weekend’s alumni weekend at Bard I dug my senior film project, Every Woman was once a little girl with Dreams, out of the dusty archives of my youth. It is so funny to watch now, all those familiar faces (Ian Mackaye is the young guy in the diner philosophizing on marriage, he drove up from DC for the fun of it and we filmed at the Red Hook Diner). I have never smoked a day in my life but apparently I thought it looked cool on film (it kind of does, sorry mom!) Lots of other cameos in the credits too if you look closely. Not sure how long I will leave this up on Vimeo but here it is in all it’s glory while I’ve got the guts. Oh and this is the film Miranda July told me she and her best friend would quote when they were feeling down about life and art, which is kind of the most awesome thing ever.

Loulou de la Falaise

Loulou_p099

Rizzoli just released a book on everyone’s favorite muse, Loulou de la Falaise. From Halston to Yves Saint Laurent, as well as days spent modeling for Vogue and designing jewelry, Loulou became a fashion icon in her own right. The book includes a foreword by Pierre Bergé and interviews with Betty Catroux, Inès de la Fressange, Diane von Furstenberg, Christian Louboutin, Elsa Peretti, Paloma Picasso, André Leon Talley, and Oscar de la Renta, as well as photos of the legendary muse by Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon and other fashion favorites. Also, while we love everything about this photo, we do not encourage smoking, even though it still somehow does look cool above. Continue reading

Delphine Manivet

I love getting a reminder of just how small and wonderful the world really is. A few days ago Nikki Deloach, who I work with in LA, sent me a text asking me to check out her friends collection for us to use in the future. Delphine Manivet is an old friend of hers from Paris and when I looked at her dresses online I fell in love and also realized that I was invited to her bridal fashion show this week in NY. So yesterday I went to Delphine’s beautiful runway show on the rooftop of the Gramercy Hotel, where I was wowed by the entire line up. I have also decided I want to get Continue reading

Veruca Salt

Hard to believe it’s been 20 years but apparently that is the case, which is good enough reason for Minty Fresh to re-release Veruca Salt‘s debut album American Thighs on November 4th, on vinyl. The last time this record was available on vinyl was September 1994. Seems I’m not the only one trying to replenish their vinyl collection. I say vinyl a lot lately. It’s a midlife thing. Continue reading

Veronique Branquinho Spring 2015

veronique 1

I get very excited by floor grazing dresses that can be worn during the day. The whole casual shabby chic hippie with an edge look is so my jam. Love Veronique Branquinho, always. I’ve been missing Paris a lot lately. Also really enjoying seeing all the models I grew up with. Continue reading

Gilmore Girls

Gilmore-Girls

My guiltiest of guilty pleasures is coming to Netflix! Starting October 1st all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls, one of the greatest shows ever, starts airing online. Note, there is no sarcasm here. Not that I need Netflix since I have all seven seasons on DVD and have indulged in watching said seasons over and over and over again for years (if I ever played hooky during fashion week, I was most likely curled up in a blissful state in my East Village nook watching episode after episode of this comfort food show). I know it may come as a shock but if you indulge in this schlock it’s actually full of brilliant cultural and musical layers buried beneath the insane dialogue. Sonic Youth and Black Flag cameos and references aside the show provides an endless list of Continue reading
