okay so i’m gradually beginning to grasp how difficult it is to take photos of the primps & clothes in the dark. which is kinda a bummer because obviously all the primping up and clothing (down? haa) mostly happens at night inside very dark places. i can’t stand flashbulbs in restaurants and bars and hotels and whatnot because it makes everything look horrendous and it’s disturbing to the guests and staff and everbody; you look like a silly tourist or something. or worse: a food blogger.
thank goodness the days are getting longer again. can’t wait for this stupid winter to be over. popped in for drinks at this new spot that just opened right in the neighborhood called Alma33. it was okay. the space looks great though, they did a nicer job than the poor prior restaurant which only lasted about a year or so.
okay so apparently, with all the renewed attention being paid to PX This – The Revised Edition— what with The Daily News, and hamptons.com, and Perez Hilton, and dlisted, and foodchannel.com, and Australia’s The Morning Show, and the upcoming appearance on CBS’s The Insider and whatnot—- it seems some people have come to realize The Revised Edition (unlike the original version of the book), aside from its snazzy new cover and funky slick square shape, actually has photographs inside as well.
and true, the two separate books pretty much do cost the same, so i guess that’s not a very good excuse for depriving the early purchaser’s of the original version (thank you!) of the lovely visual eye-candy afforded within The Revised Edition only. fair enough!
so yah. here’s all the photos contained in PX This -The Revised Edition. Thank you for your interest.

"…so what comes next after a live appearance on Australia’s [number-one rated] morning show?"
food! of course. dinner at Maialino at The Gramercy Hotel, because it was just a short stroll from the recording studio/spaceship that zzzzoom! satellites you all the way to the land of the kangaroos.

wow, filming for The Morning Show in Australia was pretty nerve-wracking but a really great experience. a detailed description of the whole shebang will definitely be included in my next book, PX Me, because i’m sure somebody else out there could probably use the information on what to expect and how to prepare for your very first appearance on a live-via-satellite international teevee show. yay!

yah so i wore the flesh mesh dress mess for my on-camera interview for CBS’s The Insider. yay!
dress: Geld Iaz (original), 1998 | dress: Geld Iaz (redux), 2011
i decided to remake this old dress from 1998, because i’ve pretty much worn it to death. i had it in mind to wear for a certain occasion, but on further speculation i decided the dress was way too transparent to be appropriate. since i had a very similar fabric in stock, only a touch weightier, i figured it would be perfect for a replica.
well it turned out to be a bigger headache than i anticipated, the machine and the fabric did not get along at all. ha ha ahaa, the inside of the dress is a complete disaster, the seams are all awry and i barely bothered with the trimming. but maybe it’s for the best so nobody can buy it right off my back. it happens a lot more times than you’d imagine, i don’t know what the hells clients are thinking sometimes. i’ve lost more personal garments while wearing them than i can even begin to count. so at least this one’s a keeper for sure.
