And Also

Picture 21

I hate things that look clean and pretty and finished. It's come to that.


I've gotten a few inquiries; if anyone wants me to make an earring for their intergalactic pleasure let me know. I have plenty of weave and leather and chain to go around for a fun little price. It costs about thirty-forty dollars to make + my labors of love+ the time travel costs of shipment to 2009.

do you know what I mean?

I'm really irritated that I have to go back to school. Partly because I get annoyed way too easily in the fashion studios (I have like four friends), and partly because I tend to drop off the face of the earth. I'm also having a bit of anxiety about what direction I want to go into for fall. I mean I'm about to exhaust this whole slash/ shapes/ grunge thing. Obviously I'm going to stay on the dark side for fall and for forever, but I feel like I've worn this look for two months straight and people are catching on..

And also, "My look" (one earring, and slashed rags) I was commissioned to make for the singer Cassie for her birthday party. I'm not sure if she wore it, but here it is.


OH and I'm super excited about my new Kirkwoods, but I have to keep them under wraps until the SEVEN/ Kirkwood party.
I'll give you a hint:

Éva Nyíri

My super stylish friend Sylvia from back home in Amarillo sent me the links to this Éva Nyíri's thesis collection. Everything that I have been trying to say for the past few months, pretty much. Warrior apathy delicousness. I chose my favorites.

And though it hurts me to see you this way..

I really hate summer. I never know what to wear, sort of the casual setting dilema, but for two or three months.
My pitiful sandal collection. All four pairs..
GARETH, ATALANTA WELLER FOR HOUSE OF HOLLAND purple and black wedges and black and pink, and Doo Ri cut out corks.
I somehow manage to pick out the worse made shoes.. (Refer to Will's blog for a sad tale of my House of Holland's)
And an outfit that's been on heavy rotation this summer. This summer I just want to layer as many lightweight breathable fabrics that have tons of texture, to have a somewhat similar effect of my winter layering explosions.
Doo Ri sheer jacket, American Apparel hot shorts, Eric Hart vest worn as shash, and old tank that Chritian Joy gave me that I ripped up (because I hate in -tact things), trashy leather slashed crop top from Urban.

Rings I found in Austin and on St. Mark's.

And while you're at it, you should read the interview on Supermelon about the blog and my style. I promise it to be intergalactic.

I'm Cloudbusting

Christian Joy's and Jason's new line of tribal printed hand made tees, tanks and dresses from the exhibit last Thursday.
And a sampling of the new shipment of Romain Kremer (the love of my life, second to Gareth), at Seven.
Foam armor (total Tron fantasy)
Deconstructed harness tee
I love the idea of tribal futurism because to me it's an exploration of the concept of positive and negative space and the subsequent symmetry, which I have been trying to experiment with in my outfits the past few weeks.
These pieces fit the requirements; I just need to break out of wearing all black first.

It's Foreboding Desert Conceals the Power to Fold Space

I don't even know what to say. I can BUY this jacket, THE jacket from the movie Dune. Supposedly it's leaking things and falling apart, but this is out of control amazing.

From Arrakis

And also, I can fulfill my dreams of being a road warrior, because of THIS.
Costume mandatory?
