stylish nana

My nana's leopard print get up for a trip to the country...still fashion forward at 87 and garnering applause when she lunches at the ues senior center.

This is where it all comes from.

the feminine complex by chelsea fairless

speaking of teen dreams and 90's nostalgia, the feminine complex--a new zine by chelsea fairless that is magically packaged with pink "it's a girl" lollipops and metallic butterfly confetti--takes lines from the classic girl talk board game and re-contextualizes them with kick ass girl power lines and pop references. in it you'll find kristen stewart flipping the bird(s), the old drew barrymore clutching onto library books, britney going sinead o'connor, and other gloriously feminine complexities.

i've just added it to shop. you can buy it here

words of wisdom from ginger spice

when your super tells you that you have 3 days to get all that junk you've been storing in the building's basement out because management's doing its "spring cleaning," you initially grunt, moan, and yell at the sky! But then, when you stumble upon little lost wonders, like a Ginger Spice In My Pocket book of quotes and pictures, you think well maybe this isn't so bad.

here are sky high platforms, girl power mantras, & 90's polyester onesies from geri halliwell to satisfy your need for some nostalgic pop. she always was one of my favorite.

I'm in Nylon Japan!

Here is my latest illustrated, editorial spread for Nylon Japan's May 2011 issue...flower girls in skates and stripes wearing wears inc clothing. Summer sun, here we come! Click on pic above to see all the nitty gritty fun.

Everytime I pick up an issue of Nylon Japan, i'm stunned by the insane art and styling that goes into every issue. The issues are consistently off the chain and loaded with eyepopping goodies. All I can say is, thank god they are listed in Japanese, or else my wallet would be in serious trouble.

Thank you Riza and Mika and the Nylon Japan team for thinking of me for this project! If you pick up a copy of the may issue with covergirls 2NE1, partial proceeds go to help the effort in Japan.
