found this headband on etsy. want it, desperately.


it reminds us of manish arora‘s spring/summer 08 show. especially his finale, a magical gown covered in technicolor butterflies. when the dress emerged, it made everyone in the room stand up and cheer; we suspect you would encounter the same reaction if you strapped on this headband and went, uh, anywhere.



then again, arora’s designs tend towards the psychedelic (we can very easily imagine tom wolfe describing said gown in the electric kool-aid acid test) whereas the headband is sorta sophisticated and stately. for the brave, but not too brave.


we think isabella blow would have approved.

sorry, all, for being so inconsistent lately.


the holiday season has resulted in much traveling, which often results in no computer, which results in no new posts.


on the plus side, it has also resulted in opportunities to dress up and put feathers in our hair.

today we checked out wardrobe remix for the first time in a while, and we think the outfits and the photos are getting better. i.e., some of these stylish self portrait-ers might actually get their picture taken out on the street, if they would stop ogling their stylish selves in their bedroom mirrors.

wardrobe-remix-1(photo taken by solitaryconsignment) (she sorta reminds us of kenley, from project runway. in a good way)


wardrobe-remix-2(photo taken by xxchinadoll) (UGH we love the heart cut-out) (it reminds us of when we were younger, when we wouldn’t put sunscreen on some spot on our hip in the shape of a heart or star or whatever, in hopes of developing a nice sunburnt skin cancerous tattoo. it never worked)


wardrobe-remix-3(photo taken by stylesalvagesteve) (susie bubble‘s “boyf”) (is it weird that i know that?) (we really like odd pants, and enormous scarves)


the loveliness of wardrobe remix is, you don’t have to wait around for someone with a camera and a website to stumble across you as you stylishly stroll about the lower east side. instead, you have the camera, and here is a website, and all that stands between you and the development of a fashion fan base (for real, people are so damn complementary when they leave comments) is the difficulty of coming up with a decent username.


hooray, it is 2009.

we are super into jakarta at the moment.

1) we like any city whose nickname refers to a dangerously spiky fruit.

2) we LOVE the enormous necklaces all the stylish residents seem to be sporting. these are some of yvan rodic’s photos:




and our favorite,


our next arts & crafts party, is gonna be ragin.
