Halloweenie

I love Halloween. This year I dressed up as a deer because my team at work dressed up like Buckhunter and we all had to match. Luckily this year it was pretty nice outside. Unlike that one Halloween where we had a snowstorm, which was cool. But not conducive to Halloweening. I was lucky enough…

BOOM. Dolce. Life Advice. (Not from me, don’t worry)

I came across an article by Refinery 29 and, since our blog names match, I decided to perpetuate the idea of old versus new in this most inspiring story of an older woman who was approached for a modeling career because she’s a fantastically aged specimen of a human: When you were in the R29…

Fashion Week & Girl Power!

As I ponder the various fashion weeks that are going on during fashion month as I’m sifting through my various—too many, too heavy, large, over-sized September issues—fashion magazines trying to draw inspiration for my dream boards (mostly), I find myself thinking more about how so many women (and gays) are dealing with sharing constricted spaces….

Yelle

I’ve loved Yelle for some time. It’s fun music. I wish I could intimately understand what she’s saying. I think I can recognize one out of every ten words. And whatever I recognize probably doesnt mean what I think it does. Also I wish I could wear those black shorts. And have them look like they…

Oh my gosh the pretty!!

Daria Strokous & Kati Nescher photographed by Steven Meisel for Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012 Ad Campaign: Honestly, this is something that i think is so funny. Gay men love women. What it means to be feminine, fleeting, whimsical. They understand women, and leave it to one of the greatest gays to sing to the loveliness of the girl-woman! Marc Jacobs’ Louis Vuitton…

Harajuku Mini!

I love Gwen Stefani– I didn’t think it was possible to love her more. What a great time to have a 3-9 year old. Obviously, I don’t. But if I did, I would buy all of this: Stefani started in 2003 with L.A.M.B., followed up by her Japanese-inspired Harajuku Lovers line in 2005. Last year…

Color Colour Dolour

The day is November 19th. Which isn’t very far away from today. And truthfully, I loved Lanvin… But that’s only because I love Lanvin… Versace I’m just okay with. I like it, I’m happy it exists; I’m just not a gold chains, neon, sunbathing kind of girl. I’m happy to do it every now and…

Gemstones, Cosmic Gifts

I’ve been getting into gemstones. I went to the Peabody museum in Harvard Square with some friends and was completely enchanted with the shapes and colors of their geodes. And various gemstone collections. They looked like miniature art installations. They’re beautiful! It’s a shame not to collect them and adorn our bodies in them as…

Dream Board and the Universe, Part 2

A little while ago I made a post about dream boards. I’m almost done with them! My life has sort of come to a standstill during the course of the past month. I’ve needed to find the time to do various paperwork, logistical errand running, assisting, craigslist furniture scouting and delivering, used car buying, apartment…

Paillettes Prada Fall 2011 and Time’s Cruel Nature

I just got the September issue of Vogue late since my subscription ran out and it’s already September 5th! I exclaim not because I am reading my magazine later than usual, this I’m okay with, it’s the uncharacteristic, surreal speed of time passing which has left me confused and unsettled. How fleeting time is, how…
