Field Trip: Balenciaga and Spain

Some sneaky snaps of the Balenciaga and Spain exhibit at the de Young. Be sure to hit "read more" below...I risked life and limb to bring you this illicit coverage! For legitimate coverage, check out my review over at ArtSlant.

How to Be a Man

Boning up on Glenn O'Brien's "compendium of manly arts." I just got it in the mail - it's kind of a silly book, the chapters are so short it's just begging to rest atop the toilet (or bidet), but fun nonetheless.


The wacky ribbon skirt is from What Goes Around Comes Around - it's quite body conscious, but very comfortable. The pattern is just nuts, I've never seen anything like it.

To Tha' Mothafuckin' Ladies With Babies




Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful, loving mother with the heart of a true artist and the mouth of an Irish sailor (one of these things isn't true). I love you Mom! See you soon...

Going Stag

This is a good look for...say...treating yourself to late afternoon cocktail? As I am about to do?

Everything here is thrifted. The blouse was discovered after months of fruitlessly searching for a plain white, sleeveless button-down - which seems like a pretty basic item, no? Little bugger was hiding out at Goodwill all along.




The flowers on the skirt are all ribbon appliqu├ęs. I had to use my iphone camera to really capture the detail...



The dots on my hand are a homemade tattoo, acquired last summer with the help of a 12-pack of Pacifico. Do I regret it?

no!
