yeah so apparently Mexico has a “Fair Use Policy” (FUP) which allows ISPs to “apply a cap” and “limit the amount of data transfer” as they see fit. just something to keep in mind the next time you rent an international mobile wifi unit and haul all your snazzy fancy state of the art equipment
halfway around the planet to a country that’s less than four hours away (and are yanking your hair bald wondering why the hell internet access is slower than AOL dial-up in 1996).
oh p.s. hey Mexico and/or xcom: FUP you.

Geld Iaz always sold its swimwear in separate pieces so they could be mixed and matched, even its original collection all the way back in 1997. then around 2003 to 2004, after i’d traveled pretty extensively already, i started noticing the look becoming more trendy, more young women began mis-matching their bikinis. around 2005, Old Navy started offering its bathing suits individually, they even had a big marketing campaign on television advertising their new genius way of selling swimwear. so then i was over it.
the problem is i now have ample bottoms (ha look, i made a pun) but only scant tops (i spent a lot of time in Miami Beach, you see), and of the few tops i have, somehow i keep losing them. anyhoo, my point is i lost so many tops that sometime last year i popped into an American Apparel in South Beach and picked one up last minute. it’s made pretty poorly i gotta say, i almost can’t even believe it. but, that’s what you get for 24 bucks i guess. i keep meaning to make myself more tops but i never seem to have the time. i’m just sayin.

i dug these pieces out of storage, they’re left over from my trunk show in 2004.
mmyeeah, now that i’ve forced myself to wear them just for the sake of desperately clinging to summer, i realized i’m actually not that crazy about this outfit, although i do recall this top was kinda popular, it sold pretty well.
late lunch / drinks at Gemma.

summer is almost over, so now i am hell bent on clinging to this season as long as i possibly can. even if that means wearing breezy gossamer resort apparel smack in the middle of this concrete urban metropolis. sigh.
late brunch / early dinner at Cercle Rouge.
