time to go swimming!!

it's fiiiiiiiiinally summer and it really feels like it in brooklyn. i just spent a nice afternoon in the sun with my beau riding my bike in short shorts to the brooklyn flea where i stared at the crowd and ate wonderful goodies like a beast and then trekked back through beautiful prospect park...ahhh. my show's just around the corner, so i'm still wrapping things up, but summer is here. at long last, summer is here.

here are some pics from nastygal vintage. the one piece bathing suit kind of reminds me of something i had when i was six...around the time when i could actually fit in one of those teensy little swimming pools. it's kind of nutty, but i love it.

mentions at the parlour...

i've been a fan of parlour vintage's stellar curation of second hand treasures, off the wall styling, and inspiration/style blog (bits and baubles) for quite some time. You can always peruse a miraculous assortment of finds at the parlour shop--from vintage Halston polka dot trench coats, to Pucci-inspired print frocks, flowy hippie tops, and awesomely mod throwbacks

Yesterday, i was honored to get a nice mention on the parlour blog on the pieces from my show, Hair Lust
check it out here!

For more fashion fun and inspiration, check out the parlour facebook wall here. loooove it!

kibbler's choreography

photographer jason kibbler for teen vogue...always keeps it lively and sprightly. his models' gesturing is always so magically and colorfully orchestrated you almost forget they are photographed against such minimal backdrops.

a natural belle!

good lines

I can't get it in my thick head to read new books sometimes, so I end up rereading books I thought were good when I was a teenager. Last week I reread Great Gatsby. Here are some lines from mr. Fitzgerald:

cut the crap! 
with its bold mustard color, plunging neckline, and austere construction, this yellow miu miu means busines!

use your fingertips

here's a new hair montage for my capstone show. if you have curls, you often have to put combs to the side and navigate the swirly terrain using your fingertips. here is an ode to that particular style of curl management... see the itty bitty details for yourself by clicking on the above or checking out the Museum at FIT on June 7.
