perfect mistake

dress: Geld Iaz, 2010 | eyewear: Gucci, 2004 | shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti, 2007



the only reason i have this dress is because a client ordered one, but i ruined it while making it so i had to make it again. i had this bright idea to use clear nail polish to help seal possible runs in knits while inserting eyelets in the oh forget it never mind. in any case, it turns out i need to be a lot more careful where the nail polish drips.

oh well. i kinda like this dress actually.

very late lunch at Gemma.


running shoes

dress: Geld Iaz, 1998 | shoes: Yves St Laurent, 2010 | eyewear: Chanel, 2005


no, seriously though— this is the very first time i wore these classic YSL Tributes since i got them last year, and they are, without a doubt, the most comfortable pair of (5.75 inch) stilettos i have ever donned (and i have worn me some heels boy, believe that). i practically jogged in them this day, i am not even kidding.

wow i really love them.


golden hour

top: Geld Iaz, 2008 | cover-up: Adrienne Vittadini, 2009 | pants: Tankus, 2007 | shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti, 2007 | bag: Yves St Laurent, 2008 | eyewear: Yves St Laurent, 2009 | hat: All Saints, 2010


beautiful day. very late lunch / early drinks at Cercle Rouge.



top: Geld Iaz, 2007 | cargo pants: Joyce Leslie, 2004 | shoes: DSquared, 2003 | eyewear: Yves St Laurent, 2010


it’s 74˚! yay! you know what that means— Aperol spritzers at my faaavorite outdoor cafe in all of NYC, Gusto Ristorante e Bar Americano (again).

and yes these cargo pants are from Joyce Leslie, i bought them for like 24 bucks, i got them in black and eggshell too. and funny— these were the pants (in black) i was wearing when i went to auditon for that big "reality" teevee show about the fashion designers, that i’m not really allowed to chronicle because i signed a non-disclosure agreement. to make a long story short, a few years ago John Gulager (the winner of the last Project Greenlight contest/reality-series) recommended i go try out for this other "reality" series (and when an experienced contest winner like that suggests you do something similar, you don’t think about it, you just do it).

so i did, and i made it all the way to the last stage of the audition where you personally address the final deciding committee— it was a darkened daunting room with cameras and things and a bunch of intimidating producers and teevee personalities and former contestants and whatnot. i had my portfolio and three dresses just as required, but everybody in the room was a creepy jerkface (except for the one nice former contestant who was totally feelin my motorcycle gear), i am not even kidding. they were impatient with my portfolio and couldn’t care less about my dresses, but the one article of clothing they liked of all things, were my pants— one of the intimidating producer creeps exasperatedly asked me, "well, did you make your pants?"

i had to bite my tongue, i wanted to tell her "no they’re from Joyce Leslie, i got them for 24 bucks. you stupid tasteless bitch." but then i refrained, because i realized that kind of arrogant attitude was exactly what was going to land me a spot on the show, but being in that room with all those creepotoids made me really not want to experience another minute of that horror. and i was right, because a little while later somebody i know ended up on Top Chef, and she fucking hated it.

anyway. mhmmp, this is why i will never be rich.


if you build it

jacket: Maurice Jones for Geld Iaz, 1997 | pants: RLX Ralph Lauren, 2009 | eyewear: Chanel, 2004


yes this jacket is the black version of the brown "safari" jacket i wore the other day. i got them both in 1997 when a tailor named Maurice Jones brought wholesale samples he’d made to Geld Iaz. i’d talked him down to about 40% of what he’d asked and agreed to buy the two samples to see if they garnered any interest with my clients. then i kinda forgot about them, and i never heard from Maurice Jones ever again. his buttons were a tad ugly so i removed them all and replaced the three front buttons with much nicer ones and ended up just keeping them both for myself.
