If there’s one question that has been on everyone’s lipminds recently, it is: could the world survive under one governing body if there were an alien attack?
I am a creative person, filled with energy and light. When I speak, it’s music. When I hear, it rhymes. When I wake up in the morning and brush my teeth, my toothbrush is like a paintbrush, creating an Impressionist landscape that subtly suggests angst. As my tax guy once said, “You are all the nine muses….rolled into one.” He laughed. I said, “You laugh because I’m different.” He said, “And you laugh because…?” And I was like, “It’s against my relij to read the back of t-shirts.”
Anyways, as a luminary of the downtown creative scene, I decided to answer this burning question the only way I know how: with fashion. My clothes are my messenger. Or I am the messenger, and the clothes are the message? Whatever.
This is my answer.
I understand it’s shocking, but look at it this way:
My face is in the shadow because I was headed to a detective agency to solve a mystery!
Here’s the thing: the play. Just kidding, that was an English major joke. What I meant was, what I’m wearing: a Sophie Hulme coat, a Swash dress, Carven heels, an Eleven Objects x Bullett collar, and a hot pink purse that is a taxidermied cane toad with Swarovski crystal eyes.
EvErYtHiNg HaS a StoRy! You’ve already seen the coat, but you see, I love it so, I actually get all the use in the world out of it. Pink is my black, so this coat sorta goes with 90% of the stuff I own. (I mean the Beck karaoke specialist P!nk, of course.) You can actually still get it—it is mad on sale, and perfect for early spring and autumn!
The dress is by Swash, who is known for charming scarves. HOWEVER, they have the world’s coolest website. AND! they made this dress. I lurve it. You can’t truly appreciate it above—look at the full shebang here. This is ALSO from Dagny & Barstow and ALSO on sale.
Speaking of COOL: the glorious women of Eleven Objects gave this to me over a Power Breakfast (see Page Six story here). With a rich tapestry fabric and a pearl and rhinestone button closure, it is like Dutch Baroque Legit. Also cool: my toad purse by Kobja. It’s demented, much like this demented Australian cane toad documentary that I luhhuuuve. It’s from Blue Tree, Phoebe Cates’s 2rad4skewl store in my hood. You can also shop Kobja online. It doesn’t fit more than a lipstick and keys, BUT FASHION KNOWS NOT OF COMFORT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everything is from Paris or London, you see, because I am a sophisticated world traveler with unique and cunning taste! “No one can write like you,” my father once said, reading from an index card I had written and told him to read to me.
OK, I have to go because apparently there is a classical musician named Carl Ditters von Dittersdorf and I have to deal with this.
