Dark Entries’ Re-Issues

Music_ (1)

Dark Entries is re-releasing a few hard to find records in September including the French born Opera Multi Steel‘s debut EP from 1984, impLOG’s “Holland Tunnel Drive” and “Uno,” a collection of early recordings from the Italian Kirlian Camera. Tracks are in the links. They’re amazing on their own but I imagine some lucky DJ will have a blast layering them with other tracks. Continue reading

These Rag and Bone Harrow bootie babies are on sale! I’ve been eyeing them all season. Wouldn’t they go perfect with all those flowey dresses and leather belts and slouchy bags I obsess over?

Sleigh Bells & Haim Live in Levi’s

photo-77

I love to see girls rock out. I’m calling this the summer of my midlife crisis. Yes, that’s happening. I don’t need a new car or new shoes or a young lad to entertain me (no comments from the peanut gallery please). I just want my old vinyl from back in the day, which I sold a few months ago in an ill advised attempt to de clutter and renovate my place. Ironically the guy who bought them from me at Kim’s Video in the East Village (whose doors are sadly closing this summer for good) told me he did the same thing a few years ago and ended up buying most of them back not long after. Don’t even ask me now what I was thinking then, getting rid of all my high school records, which included Continue reading

Bachelor in Paradise

Trust No Bitch_Vegas_2010_IMG_1178_LORES

My new guilty pleasure is here. I watched Bachelor in Paradise week one and was mostly horrified by the girl who couldn’t figure out the need to remove her stiletto HEELS while walking down a stone staircase, on the beach. Really? Also there was that girl AshLee and her stalkerish demands on a guy she knew for 18 hours. Oi. I know I am not the only one who watches the Bachelor franchise for confirmation lessons on what never ever ever to do around men (or Continue reading

Who Wears Short Shorts?

WWD_2008_

Speaking of gender bending accessories and looks, I am loving all the pant suits on red carpets these days. I’ve been hoping for years ladies would take more risks and it finally seems to be happening. This photo is from a shoot I photographed and styled in 2008 for WWD, which I still love. Shorts, boots or heels and vests are a timeless look for summer, day or night. Continue reading

Jimmy Choo, Men’s Spring 2015

mens jimmy-choo13

Sometimes I see something on the men’s side and wish they had made it for girls. Example A, these gorgeous lace-up oxfords from Jimmy Choo for spring 2015. For men. Wouldn’t a women’s bag with this color scheme and vibe be sick too? My imagination is running wild.
