even though the temperature supposedly hit 55˚ this day, i got trapped inside because i had to stay fairly close to the Skype all afternoon. sigh.
yes i wore these beauuutiful Zanottis just to do the laundry— like a good little style blogger. bitches.
dress (as skirt): Geld Iaz, 2004 | teeshirt: American Apparel, 2010 | coat: Gianni Versace, 1989 | shoes: Y3 Yohji Yamamoto for Adidas, 2010 | bag: Luba J, 2005 | eyewear: Fiction, 2010
i only wore this coat hoping Spring will come soon and i won’t have much more of an occasion to wear it for at least another ten months.
drinks at Living Room in the Standard Hotel with accessories designer Julija Stoliarova of Luba J, it was so much fun. remember when she was a 40-foot high billboard on Houston Street for Kangol by Luba J? she’s so beautiful. dinner at Villa Pacri.

when i graduated from college in 1990, i gave up black. it came to me in an epiphany one day when i opened up my closet and saw nothing but typical teenage despondence. and so for decades afterward i turned my back on black, i hardly ever went near the pigment except in the Spring of 1997 when Tom Ford and Donna Karan had practically every discerning client of mine desperately begging for it. then sometime around 2009, in the midst of a seemingly pointless never-ending war, the global economic and financial-systems meltdown, and persistent corruption in the government of the most powerful nation in the world, somehow black became appealing to me again. last year, in 2010, nearly every single article of clothing i purchased was black. go figure. if this brutal winter ever lets up, it might be time to live in color again.

yah so i wore the flesh mesh dress mess for my on-camera interview for CBS’s The Insider. yay!
jacket: ? (purchased in Seoul, Korea 2007) | jeans: The Gap, 2005 | boots: ? (Tootsi Plohound, 2003) | eyewear: Yves St Laurent, 2010
i got this jacket in Seoul on sale for about $44 US dollars. the label’s been cut out, probably to discourage re-sale at a higher price or something. i think it’s great, but the one bad thing about buying clothes designed for Asians is that all the limbs tend to be midgetty. the sleeves were too short so i bought this pair of floppy leg warmers at Joyce Leslie and attached them to the sleeves at the elbow. this jacket gets tons of compliments.
my pal talked me into the boots in 2003, because they were on sale at Tootsi in SoHo for $89. i can’t even see the designer’s name inside. not that crazy about them, the heels are too short and the sole is thin (generally i prefer a platform). but they’re fine in this crappy weather for a stroll to the post office, that’s for sure. they’re actually not bad, they have these neat long leather laces that just wrap around haphazardly.
