The Red Shoes


Stills from The Red Shoes, an iconic 1948 film about a ballerina that must choose between love and her dance career. Black Swan was heavily influenced by the imagery, if you haven't seen this you should really watch it right now!

Dream Team

I'm so happy to announce that the designers behind Cat Party favorite Church + State (Nathaniel Crissman and Rachel Turk) and John Blasioli are teaming up with Pendleton to create a new line for Fall '11 titled Pendleton, The Portland Collection. The new collection promises to be aimed towards a younger customer base, we'll see how it competes with the Opening Ceremony lines. I'm sure everything will be amazing with such incredible talent behind the reigns!

Speaking of Portland, in case you haven't seen the Portlandia trailer I suggest you take a required coffee break to watch it. I'll definitely be checking it out, I love Fred Armisen and call Portland home! As much as I kind of hate to admit it the video is pretty spot-on.

Oh Shiloh


Four year olds usually excel at "effortless" style but Shiloh is really taking things to the next level with this outfit. Who would have thought to pair a trapper hat with a military jacket and unlaced Ann D-style combat boots? Maybe Tabitha Simmons? 


Move over Ron Galella, this is by far the chicest paparazzi photo of all time! Shiloh looks flawless (of course) but Zahara is totally upstaging her in the accessories department. Her metallic flats look so major with that Hello Kitty 2.55. 


This girl is only four and she's already better at layering than I am! The bomber jacket was a good call, can you imagine how cute she would look in a little baseball jacket? OMG.  


Kurt Cobain realness! Can someone please get her a little Daniel Johnston t-shirt to wear? That would be so precious.

In Good Company

I was so happy to see Chelsea #2 at my favorite NYC bookstore, McNally Jackson. This has to be the best placement ever! 



Poodlemania!

In a bizarre turn of events I have developed a fanatical obsession with poodles. Don't ask me why, it even weirds me out!


Madonna Versace ad, General Idea, Peter Hujar, Slim Aarons photo of Joan Collins, Doris Day, Edward  Scissorhands, some poodle, some poodle painting, Nagi Noda, the most hilarious thing that I have ever seen in my entire life.

Where My Girls At?

I was so excited when my friend Kelly asked me to make a playlist for her killer blog Nothing is New. The result is Where My Girls At? A super-catchy, sassy-as-hell mix of my favorite songs at the moment. It's an all-girls mix with the exception of one Lindsey Buckingham song which I included because Lindsey Buckingham has a girls' name---and I love him. But anyway, you can download the mix here. Below are a few of my favorite videos from the mix, the Salt-N-Pepa one is freaky good.
