you know you love me, xoxo


I know everyone except me hates little J, but this is probably the best thing ever. She's a superhero!

it's the world where you live

This is pretty good (click the link blogger can't format a picture that wide). Not too nuts, but good execution.

I dress like the 70s, I live like the 90s

So, I can NOT stop looking at this site, lookbook. Essentially, people send in artsy pictures of themselves in cool outfits. I guess you vote and stuff, so that's the motivation for sending in your pictures, but I really just can't stop looking at it. After, like, an hour of perusing yesterday, here are some of my faves:

because everyone loves sweaters, and those shoes are cute

because I love a red shoe

because she's a 16 year old from Finland and it's just crazy enough to be awesome

because she looks like a cupcake

just because it's a cool picture, and the girl is seriously skinny

because she just looks really cute in that outfit, and I want to go shopping with her

because I would wear this even though it looked terrible on me, which it would

because I want to wear this every day, and she probably does.

because she's soooo skinny, and her description is "19 year old prostitute from Texas"

because she's wearing the mary-kate rip off shoes from forever 21, and I really think wide leg jeans are about to be back in a big way

Go check it out, you won't be sorry.

In other fashion news, here's my must-haves for Spring 09:
Wide-leg jeans
gauzy tops (esp. high necked with a bow)
statement hats (my personal preference currently is a Charlie Chaplin hat, which makes me look a little like Annie Hall... but that's a look I can live with. My other fave is the wide brimmed hats that look like you'd wear them to a polo match. If, you know, people went to polo matches.)
pink, purple, cream combos
bright pink, orange, teal combos
tweed/camel (especially good to balance the gauzy florals, in terms of texture)
pleated knee length skirts
platforms stripper heels (esp. great with the wide leg jeans)

I love clothes, I want to shop... it's because the weather's getting good again. Changing seasons makes clothes hounds salivate in anticipation.

I really like The City

Christian Lander Picture Day!!!

Here is Christian Lander drinking a large beer, apparently in some sort of Asian fast food joint (that serves beer - awesome), and less apparently but maybe sitting next to a poster for some sort of Asian Harold and Kumar variant (odd, as both characters are Asian themselves, no?).

He's so great!

Happy Friday, don't get hit by any cars.

and fire away

even the world's best stander got there by spending some time on their knees.

you'll be calling but I wont' be at the phone

I don't think I've posted that before, it's seriously hilarious.

So there's some amazing music right now. Lykke Li is killing it - killing. it. I can't stop listening to her album Youth Novels, my favorite tracks are complaint dept. and little bit, and obviously I'm good I'm gone, her single, is amazing. Also rocking my life is Ezra Furman and the Harpoons, who I can't get enough of. Take Off My Sunglasses is what I want to listen to all the time. In fact, I will play it for you now, and then probably just loop through it for the rest of the day while I search in vain for a job that doesn't make me want to die.

Take Off Your Sunglasses - Ezra Furman And The Harpoons

on that note, who knows someone who has a job they like? that you don't need "connections" to get, necessarily, or need to be able to do an unpaid internship for in order to break in, because this chick needs some cash money in a big way. I had to debate myself for 15 minutes over a $23 pair of boots. The boots won, obviously (fashion always does) but this recession shit is getting on my nerves. Plus, recession or no, some bookstore or something really give me a job already, christ. (note to self: you must apply for these jobs before getting them).

Oh well. I still live across from a subway, and I watched the entire season of freaks and geeks over the past 4 days, so I really have little to complain about. It could always be worse. You could always be working in a sewer, or cleaning toilets, or trapped in a subway car with scarlett johanssen while she talks about how fucking cool she is, or (gulp) at a creed concert.

It's nice to reflect on the blessings life has given you.

Oh also Ladyhawke is awesome, too, as well.

Paris Is Burning - Ladyhawke

dig it.
