Trench Town

Every decade the trench just keeps getting better. As a good daughter to her father, I'll have kids of my own learning to say the word trench before even learning to walk. If you're like me you'll spend hours scoping out every visual inch of this living document, collaborated between Burberry and some talented photographers. Love it up, and crush on a few I can't stop staring at.. let's hear it for these boys.

Mary Kate? Yes, Mary Kate..

Glamoruos yet Bohemian, signature yet inconspicous, throw away the dress code. From 'The Wackness' to her and her sister's new high end minimalist line 'The Row'. More than just a crush, everything about her I so adore.

Cats & Dogs

Please help the Philippines victims of Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana) by making a donation:

*Philippine National Red Cross -
*World Food Program -

The widespread flooding, landslides, and population displacement, have affected over 3 million people. Many families have lost loved ones, their homes, and are in need of immediate food aid. Unfortunately the Philippines government is useless at this point, and not fully able to provide for its people during this devastating event. Even the smallest amount will make a great contribution. Spread the word.

For the World

This time it was her 3rd. Happy Birthday little G.

Woof, I got you the live version:

And a bit of wisdom:

No Guys, Just Dolls

Sharon Tate is all glamour and no destruction, despite her role in one of my classic faves, 'Valley of the Dolls.' This goes way beyond a secret girl crush, I am deeply inspired by her beauty, her style, her light & dark, and her flower child carefree ways. Sad to say I missed the opening of Jeremy Corbell's mixed media art exhibition in Culver City titled, ICON: The Life and Style of Sharon Tate, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of her passing. Peep out some of the work at

The Grey Cardi

Oh, the ceaseless fad of stripes, print, and plaid. But I always stick to my clad philosophy.. 'wear what you feel'. It's Fall again, and I would dig myself a grave to feel the beauty in the decay. Since I lack a spade, I'll keep it simple and sexy, trust me, this could get personal. Go ahead, if you can't follow your own lead, check how they rock the Grey Cardi..

Alexander McQueen

Thank you 7th Earl.

Black, White, & Hardly Red

I recently finished this great read I picked up at a used book store up on the Australian gold coast. 'The Power and the Glory,' by Graham Greene. No need to count sheep, this is more than just a religious bedtime story, but you may need a dictionary. I wish I had his literary gene, it's magnetically poetic. Love and hate, freedom and oppression, pride and humility, good and evil. Who said opposites attract? Find out for yourself..

So Cliche

"At the end of the day"... I see you have nothing better to say.

Handsome Furs

Everyone needs a bit of heavy petting now and then, but for me the pining for it seems to never end. Even more so now, since the start of my solo expedition 5 months ago, music has been more than just a burner or routine fling. Morning, noon, night, forget the the husband and the ring, but let me introduce one my favorite lovers, the Handsome Furs. Husband and wife rock duo, Dan Boeckner of Wolf Parade, with vocals that resonate the happy and the melancholy, and Alexei Perry who puts magic to the beat. Since March of this year I have been delving into the thought provokingly, political yet not political, imperfectly perfect, introspective lyrics of their newest album, Face Control. Take a deep breath with each track more than just audible, I may as well be cheating on its pleasing predecessor, Plague Park. I feel the envy, to hear and see that this band is not focused financially, but rather more aesthetically. Using funds from shows, just enough to see a new foreign city. Absorbing the world, life, and experience through traveling, and conveying this through their music. Not to mention that the handsome couple wrote all songs together as a team. Whoa. Talk about chemistry..

Good Jeans

I've been fiending for a new pair of jeans. Even here in the Philippines at 34 degrees, where the sun and the humidity are thicker than thieves. I prefer to prance around the city in my undies, but merely wearing shorts may as well be a felony. Well here's the skinny on a brand new pair of good genes, labeled R13. Distressed denim produced in Italy, edgy straight and skinny cuts, but oh so relaxed. So, follow their rocking laid back lead, like old vinyl they only get better with age. I think with a little Dylan in the background, I might just become a groupie.

Row Your Boat..

i want to get out, i need air, i need to breathe.
fuk love i'm going out of my mind here
it's just prayer painting these walls half clean.

see the air lives thick and far from clear
i'm falling, i'm failing, i'm fleeting.
gonna build my house on minimal decree

can you cure a wooden smile
conquer over their rusted, garish hearts
we know that plastic only lasts a short while

give me a guitar give me some song
i can't sleep with dissonant melody
sketch a rhyme to help me write the wrong.

i've seen every cold of grey, and every shade of blue
same sign, your shifting steps like mine
i want color, i want new, i want you.

i've got years on your lovely flooded boots
the water is so knee deep in dirt
i'll carry you up ladders and down chutes.

look now, you see the sun awake i put it to sleep
fade your bones, fade the pretty
killing the need, another version of me

Wear is NZ?

My first few steps in New Zealand resulted in a late breakfast of Auckland boutiques. I consumed c (customs) street, and left nothing on that plate when I delved into a soon to be favorite local store called MADE. A healthy array of hues melding and folding, garments grey and golden. Complementary consumption could never be more well balanced with a heap of worldly designers and some edgy local labels.

March, April, May, and I'm inhaling winter once again. A little sugar in the coffee and some vintage in the post modern, makes the label 'maw' so sweet ( Discard the preconceived fleece, sneakers, and jeans. Less hide and more seek, and the assumed nz battle of fashion verses function starts to rip at the seams.

See through predictable windows, past the dear and the sheep suffocating the streets of the King and the Queen. Adore a bit of push and pull up Lorne, with a quick cold stroll through the narrow High Street. I love a new high fashion buy with a new high coat, but I can't lie I despise the cold. Had to make it last and satisfy it with a short black and a bit of a vintage fix down k (karangahape) road. Auckland's getting warmer and vintage and designer resale is always in season. Less words, more love, and a formulated map.. check it out.

<3 this city. Enjoy.

Let's Abbreviate

LAX. ANZ.. I love this feeling of passing, this mode of transiency, and this eradication of routine. Here once again becomes the inception of introspection and a pseudo breakup. A love her for a lover, I'm about to fall in love with the world. Goodbye LA, SD, MN... here we go again!

Vote Earth!

I am joining the world for Earth Hour, and switching off my lights on Saturday, March 28th from 8:30 - 9:30 pm. I guess I try to do what I can to reduce my carbon footprint... at times. Perhaps during this hour I shall bumble around town in my SUV with no headlights. No, no, it's nice to collaborate and make a positive statement with others around the world, yet so crazy to think that this will change nothing in the daily routine of many millions worldwide.

So, I just acquired an old polaroid camera for 10 bucks.. but the film is about to be extinct. It's disheartening to succumb to digitalism, and adhere to the tensioning altruism. Go here for your pseudo sense of polaroidism: ..and if this won't suffice, go here to sign a petition to bring it back:

Yes Goodbye,

Yes I am fleeting my job.
Yes we are in a recession.
Yes I love this feeling.
Yes an ode to obsession.
