Tetragrammaton

Christian Joy's hand-me downs are the best because it gives me new things to destroy and they are usually really cool to begin with. I took the bottom seams out of this over sized tuxedo shirt, initially to get a good fray going, but the hanging string were begging for manipulatio. I can't fathom all of the ways that I can wear this- especially after a long week of class, but the main concept that needed to be explored today was the placement of the strings to determine the direction of the drapes. Its the next obvious step in my obsession with straps and negative space.

Just saw your picture in NY Mag. I live in LA so I get it late.

LOVED IT. Thank God you didn't listen to your parents. When I was younger I used to dress differently and got teased a lot. But I didn't care. Even today I'm the Queen of Accessories.lundul

You make me want to get black lipstick and wear it every day; it looks fantastic on you.
The shirt is great and I really want the last picture huge on my wall.

I do agree with the comment about your tattoos. They look interesting and the public loves to look at great tattoos so it would be cool if you would post them in detail!

Just found your blog and your style is killer. Love the top in this picture and the endless ways that it looks like it could be exploited. Your lips are completely incredible. You wear dark lipstick with such aplomb!
