new york’s finest

jacket: Alessandro dell’Acqua, 2004 | pants: Geld Iaz, 2000 | eyewear: Gucci, 2004 | boots: Sportmax by Max Mara, 2010 | gloves: Etienne Aigner, 2006

 

i’m not sure why, but a street vendor jokingly asked me if i’m a "good cop or bad cop?" — maybe because i’m wearing the colors of the NYPD.

but really if i had to choose i think i’d be ambivalent cop.

 

research in motion

 

huh, just when i was seriously contemplating finally replacing my trusty tactile-keyboard-having dinosaur of a Blackberry with an iPhone, it’s good ole RIM that’s kinda kicking Apple’s ass for me these last couple days.

oh also: that title up there is really a bit of a playful misnomer, cuz obviously i’m not really very much “in motion” right now at all. i’m just sayin.

 

animal planet – 03

dress: Geld Iaz, 2008 | necklace: Geld Iaz / Joyce Leslie, 2011 | eyewear: Gucci, 2004

 

i didn’t actually make this dress from scratch, i found it in some store someplace on Broadway on sale for like $10. and at the time i liked the fabric, so even though the dress was too large and pretty hideous, i bought it anyway just so i could reconstruct it. i’m too lazy sometimes to make new things for myself with patterns and the whole rigmarole (plus my inventory of fabric is too costly for me to spoil myself with garments i’m just going to casually wear with flats and run around in all day). i’m really not that crazy about it, but at least it’s roomy and comfortable. the necklace i found in Joyce Leslie while i was buying leggings and tank tops (that i could also reconstruct). i thought the feathers were pretty, and i noticed they were cheaper than if i’d gone to the fabric/trimming district and bought them individually, imagine that. so i just played around with the feathers and stuff until the necklace was better.
