images i love. just three but just enough.

happy birthday em!

Killing me softly with her song.

I had one more day till i went home to find some birthday gifts and i decided to go to Williamsburg. I found some gifts but that's not the point of the blog post, its to tell you about these two finds. Hanging on the fence at the corner of N11 st and Bedford was this vintage stone washed GUESS jacket along with a bunch of other clothes and goodies. This wasn't a legit store, more of like a pop-up yard sale without the yard. Anyways, there was a "deal" today name your price and get a free Vinyl. MEGA DEAL! I picked up Johnny Mathis' album "Killing Me Softly with Her Song".

mhm. three pocket, one sleeve.
get ready for the tranny files.

Adventure #2

I hopped on the F train with my two roomies for an adventure on Sunday to visit the one and only Coney Island. We saw it in all of its glory and felt mostly giddy but sort of nauseous at the same time (I've got a weak stomach). It was really nice to get some sun and beach back into my life since we've been surrounded by concrete for a month. It was a lot quieter than in Manhattan and at some points I forgot I was in Brooklyn. My room mate David got some great shots for his photo project and I got a Nathan's hot dog (the main reason of my nausea). It was a great day for the three of us, it was all what we needed-a break.

Here are some shots from my Blackberry of our trek.

until next time.
(hopefully with a real digital camera)

Fall OAK.

The new fall OAK campaign has come out on their website and I'm LOVING it. This could be equivalent to the Croc plague obsession (minus any law suits) in my eyes. Its very feminine while holding a strong sense of masculinity, with a dark mood which I cannot get enough of. I think its the dark eyes of the models that get me, and the first image is amazing. I'm thinking tranny but they are so masculine that its too far from tranny, so I'm hot and bothered and ready to display this campaign. slick black hair and dark eyes get me, every time.

Thanks OAK.


Wednesdays are my days off from school and any other obligations so I finally decided to explore some of New York. I haven't seen too much of Central Park and any streets with a number higher than 28th so today I was determined to see 5th ave and Central Park. But really my main mission was to get to Bergdorf Goodman and see the entity it is. -it was beautiful. After that I had to check out the new Tommy Hilfiger flagship store which I didn't take photos of because I was on the phone. But I think its classic American and kept with the Tommy Hilfiger lifestyle and perfect for the 5th ave tourist. There was one cardigan I was eying because of its color (Royal Blue) and its rich elderly quality I saw walking down 5th by BG. After being an on-looker at stores, I went to Bryant Park to see the tents and be an on-looker. ha. I did get some looks which for me is a success in itself. You don't get many looks even if you are bat-shit crazy.

I love styling myself after the elderly, when I say elderly I mean the old men on 5th ave. To me they are icons in their own right, men don't have many choices to diversify their wardrobes so its easy for men to fall into a certain...style. Most men go for the jeans and t-shirts look which is good for the occasional relaxing day, but MOST men choose that look every damn day (not hating just stating). I really admire that those men who chose to not dress in a casual manor everyday. I haven't worn nearly enough ties yet, but with the colder weather I am so much more inclined to put on a tie. Especially those knit ties you can get at BG for $115 or at J.Crew for half of that, I really love them (check the manneqiun in the 3rd picture). I'm just not sure if I can make the commitment to the well-dress men I'm going to become just yet.I've only been here for a month, let a girl live. SO today acid wash; tomorrow sweater and tie.

Enjoy these photos of my day.

NYC Fashion Week 2009


so i haven't gotten into the shows because uh...Yea I have no connections (the first step is admitting it). But it will get there eventually, i mean ya never know. There was one way to get into the shows. Volunteering. To me I don't want to do that but I know that's the way in and you have to start at the bottom. My school offered some but the line for the sign-ups were from 27th to Central Park and I couldn't listen to clambering of people (when I say people I mean 1000 girls and a tow guys) so excited to hold a door and a hanger. (YEA I'M A SNOB) That's one of the problems at school, there are SO MANY GIRLS here and only a handful of guys. I don't really care about the large amount of girls here where most guys would do a handshake or chest bump in response to hearing there's an estimated 80% of women here. uhh yea love the girls but its cool there could be at least maybe 40% men and 60% women. MAYBE? DAMN!

BACK to fashion week! So I've scoping the net and am LOVING the Band of Outsiders Spring '10 line.

more posts to come about what I'm loving.

Sunday Cut.

I've had this XL Vans t-shirt from Amvets for months and was planning on cutting it up right when i got it. But I didn't get around to it till tonight, Sunday September 12, 2009. So now its cut and i'm pretty happy with it. My room mates and I like it, but its kind of big so I had a bit of a Flashdance.
