Fluttershy - Working In Background

VALENTIME’S

Today is the day of all days: VALENTIME’S DAY. If I had my way, it’d be Valentine’s Week. Valentine’s Century, even. 

But it’s not :(

Chin up, though! Even if you’re single! (By the way: if you’re single, which I’m not, definitely practice making out with the back of your hand. It will pay off in spades!!!)

Now back to me, because this blog is about me and my passion for magic cards. To honor this special day, I put on almost every single pink thing I own all at the same time. The result is the sartorial expression of love.

J.Crew Jacket. Scarf gifted from my roommate’s public relations agency that I made up last week. Pink vintage slip under pink tribal print skirt from the Louvre of retail, Pixie Market, under a vintage Comme Des Garcons parachute dress. (As seen on the very famous blog Pizza Rulez!!!! It is my favorite blog, totally check it out!) Cool pink tights from my recent trip to outer space. Shoes by Target x some of Oprah’s old nail clippings. My purse is by Collina Strada, and it’s actually a muff. Like it’s lined with fur and you put your hands in it and it keeps them warm. It joins my phone and my currency in a fur brotherhood.

Close up! Thierry Lasry sunglasses. Vintage New Kids on the Block earrings. My roommate’s Hello Kitty earphones. What could I be listening to?

Amazing. The juxtaposition between the gritty reality of the street and the carefree, childlike pink tones of this Korean teenager really speaks to the tension of modern city living!

What else am I doing to celebrate today? Just some cool Pizza times with Dr. Boyfriend

I’m not kidding. I don’t make jokes. Jokes are for single people.

Pizza Out.

John Cage and Jackets (TM).

When I’m not in working in my job as a freelance banker, I’m a musicianist. This week I’ve been working on some cool MASH-UPS to share: all classic song-sexin’ between my favorite pop hits and John Cage’s 4’33”. Like here’s 4’33” x Usher’s “DJ’s Got Us Fallin’ In Love.” And here’s Kanye and Jay-Z featuring Beyonce x 4’33”. And this is Enemies x 4’33”! And here’s The War On Drugs x 4’33”!

It feels so good to be talented.

In other news, today after making my rimmity-remixes, I put on some clothes. 

I looked so good in my cute little outfit, that I let the Ole Roommate take some photos for old time’s sake. She was all begging for it, and I was like, “OK, whatever, just do it fast, because I have a receipt signing at 3 PM to get to.”

Anyways, here are some more photos of me.

Sunglasses by Thierry Lasry. Necklace is my mommy’s, much like my monthly allowance. Scarf a gift from My Roommate’s Fashion Public Relations Agency She Just Started When I Typed This. Pants by Phil-Dog Lim. Shirt from downtown New York’s hippest undiscovered boutique!!!

But you’re all, “Wait, Pizza-Dog” —because that’s what you call me when we’re lying on that chaise lounge together— “what’s the story with your jackets?” 

Well:

Backless Risto vest from Assembly New York (go go go!) over a J.Crew tweed-body jacket with trench sleeves (from last year—no ya nevah gonna git it).

These jackets make me feel younger than I’ve ever felt before! I feel like a new woman, and you bet my husband has noticed!

Disclaimer: The above is a statement reflecting my status as the official spokesperson of jackets. Jacket results not typical.

Now go listen to my mash-up of 4’3” and Enrique’s “I Like It!”
