ya that's right, tippi hedren sent me this.

i love her signature with birds. and that majestic lion.

new woody allen movie!

starring a burnt larry david and a kiddish looking evan rachel wood! this is a photo from the set in new york!

some things

magazines are much cheaper if you subscribe to them, so i got subscriptions to harper's bazaar, nylon, and marie claire. i don't really like marie claire but it was only 5 bucks. so i guess i'm excited to get them in the mail, its just, i like it more when i get to pick them up at a newsstand. the excitment is kinda gone. i was talking to my sister on the phone yesterday about my family's trip to ny (they all arrive tomorrow afternoon) and i asked her what she wanted to do while she was here and she named some places she wanted to shop and then in the background my mom says, "it's not all about shopping!" but then me and my sister were like, but it kind of is all about shopping when you are on vacation in new york, shopping and eating. that's all we'll be doing for the next week. right now i am sitting at the kitchen table on the computer at andy, dan , and casey's apartment. andy has to be at work so he asked me to sit at his house all day and wait for a package i have to sign for. i am a bit bored. and hungry. and thirsty. and a bit lonely, but i don't feel too lonely because all the windows are open and alot of people are outside and so its loud and i can hear their voices. that sounded so sad but its actually very happy. i am people watching from three stories up.

a pup

i want to get a pup

this is really depressing

peter som is cutting back so i can't have the internship. fuck the recession. i'm gunna go but some brie and tomatoes and watch a movie in my bed.

peter som: my soon to be employer!

i want to dress in his clothes and in this style everyday! grunge and fur and leather and layers and florals and mixed patterns!

i like erin wasson's style: tomboy in heels

bettie mae page

"I never thought it was shameful. I felt normal. It's just that it was much better than pounding a typewriter eight hours a day, which gets monotonous." she was the first fetish/bondage model. she only started modeling after she graduated from college, which i think is very cool. in a way i see her as a feminist because she didn't just become a secretary to make money, she did risky business for the 1950s and took control on what she would do in life. i have always been influenced by her look, and she is the reason i first cut my bangs in high school and continued to have them. one time, one of my sister's friends said my bangs reminded her of bettie page and it made me so happy and feel so cool. i like that some of her images are even a bit hard to look at nowadays, at least for me. i think its cool that she invented a genre and is still famous for it. also, it looks like she's having fun. she died yesterday at the age of 85 in LA.

taylor is funny

she is rachel zoe's styling assistant and she is very tough and sassy (sidenote: it has been brought to my attention that i am sassy by three people, which i did not really think of myself as, but cool). and i love her hair style and color.

this look

this is how i'd like my make up to look everyday. very pale and dark.

jo march, checking the family mailbox.

perhaps for a letter from teddy/laurie, away at college?

celebrity, the movie

these photos are from the film celebrity by woody allen. the movie is in black and white, so i have always wondered what color winona's shirt was in this scene, and now i know it's greenish-grey! very exciting for me. and i think she looks cool and skinny.

andy found this

“Wendy and Lucy” is rated R (Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian). It has some swearing, a little drug use and a brief implication of violence, but no nudity, sex or murder. The rating seems to reflect, above all, an impulse to protect children from learning that people are lonely and that life can be hard.

i am going to be very deep now. when do people learn that humans are lonely and that life is hard? i guess it's different for every person, but probably the pre-teen and teen years. at least, i think that's when i found it out.


as i watch tyra banks be annoying in a way that i can't turn away from, i write this blog post. last night, andy suggested that i make my blog more self-deprecating in order to bring into the open my flaws in order to make them less humiliating so i can over come them and grow as a person. and also because it will just be hilarious. for example, it was recently pointed out to me that i am very lazy. and at first i was like what?! no way! but then andy was like here is my example. he was like, when you want to make tea you just let the hot water run from the sink and then use that, while he would use a tea pot and only use actually boiling water because that is how the tea is released or some shit. and i was like ya you are right. and then i thought of all the other ways that i am lazy: i could sleep till 4pm and have no regrets, i could watch shit tv all day and be fine with it, i don't cook, i don't clean, i hate showering and try to avoid it, i hate brushing my teeth and only do it once a day if that, and many more. so in conclusion i am a lazy biatch and i am fine with it. i think i just mentioned andy too much and made it sound like he controls me and i do whatever he says. of course this is totally true. jk. also, i did alot of depressing shit yesterday. first i was reading all about horrible hotels. the greenpoint hotel in brooklyn and the kenmore hotel in manhattan are two of the most run down, shitty, drug filled, prostitute ridden dens of sin. and people live there so then it was sad and i got sad and disgusted. then i went on to read these two anonymous abortion blogs. apparently this is a current trend. now, obviously i am very very pro-choice but it was still depressing for some reason to read about the process of planning and having an abortion. on a less sad and self deprecating note, i got an internship in fashion public relations (PR) working for women's fashion designer peter som. i am very excited. now off i go to microwave some lobster ravioli in vodka sauce.

look how weird looking these are!


there is a real furrier near where i live in brooklyn! it gets me really excited because it just doesn't seem like they exist in america anymore. a furrier is a person who sells, makes, repairs, alters, cleans, or otherwise deals in clothing made of fur. i looked into the store front late one night and there was an old man inside watching tv. there are hanging furs in the window, some with the animal heads still attached and yet to be worked on. it is all very cool to me and kinda gross.

i love...

and fashion grunge (of the 90's). and it's all coming back!

rhoda morgenstern and mary

this is how wikipedia describes rhoda: spunky, weight conscious, flamboyantly fashioned. so i very much relate to her. also because she is jewish. i think that she is those 3 things because she is jewish, if you know what i mean. i love that red dress outfit. but i do love mary's hair style... and of course her apartment. p.s. i never even really watched this show, but i somehow know about the characters. i think my mom told me about them. i am watching oprah right now and they have the whole cast of the show on, sitting in an exact recreation of mary's apartment. i dream of creating perfect, realistic places for sets and such. it's like one of my favorite things. fake rooms that look so real and accurate.
