what a busy week!
i had my first midterm of my senior year (whoa there) and i've decided to enter an international photo contest. i'm worried cossss my portfolio/thesis ain't done yet and so i don't really have complete body of work other than the stuff i just shoot of my friends but who wants to see oh hai i did this this weekend mr professional photo kids?
so i'm meeting with a teacher tomorrow orrrowow so she can help me edit.
my room mates parents came into town and feed us delicious brunch today. and my other room mates dad comes in a week. we've had a month of being ridiculously well fed due to parents visiting. which is always always lovely

i also saw where the wild things are. it was awesome. there wasn't really a plot but any fan of the book will tell you that it's 20 lines of dialouge only allow for a simplistic plot. i really really enjoyed it. i think it was totally indicative of a young boy's childhood.
they are wild things, no?

also, weds (last weds) i went to see the ruby suns and the dodos at the bowery ballroom! my friend kat knew the percussionist (i think he plays the vibraphone or something) all in all, a good show, though a fight nearly broke out right in front of me between a fratty looking chubby guy with a shaved head and a really drunk obnoxious preppy guy.
kind of hilarious but my ankle got stepped on. at least teh camera wasn't injured!

kat and ketin, the vibraphone player of the dodos

the dodos playing

this is what i wore to school and the show.
3.1 phillip lim cardigan, issolleani necklace, rachel comey skirt

this was taken on the photo floor. we have a show up right now called posing beauty- it's about african american photography and concepts of beauty within portraiture. really great stuff
3.1 phillip lim top, rachel comey skirt, repetto shoes

from my friend's bday party a week ago. i was supposed to go to burlesque afterwards but that ended up not happening. oh well.

vintage '60s dress, i altered the neck line so it would look like this. it used to go all the up to the base of my neck with a peter pan collar, but i like this better.
snakeskin belt, prada shoes

thrifted '40s jacket, snakeskin belt, 60s dress, prada shoes, backseam stockings.
kind of hot. i liked how this came out. i wasn't sure if it would work b/c of how short the jacket is, but it worked out pretty nicely. dare i say.
also the backseams where a hit at the party. this one girl named inna, such a dollface, was really enamored with them. they are from american apparel, much to people's shock.

and this weekend, a bunch of my friends threw some parties. so i went to those. and clearly, the theme of the weekend was omg avoid the rain. so i wore my rachel comey brogues cos they are water proof and are 3000x cuter than rubber wellies.
oh a funny thing about the leopard dress. i wore it to this party and two guys there, who were both at least 8 yrs older than me, spoke to me during the soiree, asked for my number and also said i was beautiful. not pretty, or cute but beautiful. so this dress has magical powers or just really appeals to the 25-35 yearl old male demographic.
and to be honest, i'm not digging for compliments here, but i was just shocked at the choice of words. like really? beautiful? oh..okay! how nice.

rachel comey dress, nude anna sui fishnets with butterflies on them (!!!) and rachel comey brogues

my favorite eatery is going seasonal and all of my favorite dishes are disappearing! in honor of that, i wore this mayle dress. and cried into my eggplant toast :(

Ta Ta For Now!

Are those the RC Derringers? Oops wait I take that back, the Brogues, I have them in the Whiskey color but I think I messed them up especially tip of the toes. I always and unavoidably wet them, thanks to Portland weather. Right on the tip, there's now a dried wet mark the shape of north america like in a map. :( I should have weatherproofed them as they are one of my favorite shoes.

However, I don't think leather stains would be noticeable on yours since the color is black :), but just a precaution.

Wow, that dress really is magical! I may not be a straight male, but I think you're looking pretty darn beautiful too!

P.S. -Those Repetto spectators? I NEED THEM!
