To be honest I'm super duper sick of myself so these will be the last few pictures of moi for a while.  BTW I realize my hair is a hot rats nest in the second picture.  It had been a long day and a long week.


My friend Nettie is a mermaid - Nettie Kent Jewelry

Photography -  Betsy Blundell  {Nettie and I took the ones of Betsey in them...of course :)}

Nettie Kent (above image) is the closest I've ever come to meeting a real, live mermaid - her hair, her beauty and her spirit just don't belong on land. Besides the fins (and thank God she doesn't have fins right?  where are mermaid's pee-holes?!) she is the real deal. Growing up on Martha's Vineyard, Nettie's backyard was the ocean.  Her line, Nettie Kent Jewelry, is a bit like wearing a beautiful jewelry version of the ocean: slices of sand on your fingers, gorgeous sea foam on your wrists, whispering sand dune grass dangling from your ears. Srsly. All her pieces are made from two of my most favorite materials - brass and leather. Nettie, who worked for Philip Crangi, has designed a line that is so on point it is truly difficult to decide which piece(s) to purchase.  It's no wonder Nettie has already received attention from trendsetting moguls like Agyness Deyn.  What better way to celebrate Nettie's line than to do a shoot at the beach with our friend and photographer Betsy Blundell, getting to wear all the jewelry!  We took these shots a few weeks back at Ft. Tilden.  And man, as I sit here writing this, cuddled up under a comforter with the sniffles,  it makes me nostalgic for summer already.  I think I'll go call my mermaid friend Nettie and have her take me with her back to the ocean…

 I was pretty excited to find these street style pics of me today on Style Italy and realbeauty.com as I actually hadn't gotten any shots of this outfit. These were snapped as I was leaving a show at Lincoln Center. 

I have a major post fashion week cold- body has given out- so I'm not feeling up to writing much more but I hope everyone is doing well! I'm going to go blow my nose.

Denim Diapers- Vintage Levis

Another day...another fashion week outfit. All my friends know I live in tiny denim shorts we lovingly call "denim diapers" throughout the summer. They are high waisted, vintage Levis I have cut off at an obscenely short length. Obscenely. My ass cheeks kind of stick out. My thinking was - to not wear them at least one day of fashion week would not be honest about who I really am fashion-wise. Kind of trashy and sloppy in a rock star way OF COURSE. I paired them with an amazing, kissy lip print, vintage button down which was big enough to balance out the obscenity going on down below.  I found this shirt while vintage shopping with my friend Adrea Lord.  Andrea owns the t-shirt company Son of John and she liked this print so much she borrowed the shirt to create a similar print- available soon. Can't wait to see how it turns out. 


Wuda Week!

So New York Fashion Week is coming to a close and my feet are happy about that.  I'm not sure you could call them feet any more- more like two big blisters.  But what a fantastic week. I got to see so many great collections and talk to so many different people in the industry about their art. You can read all my coverage of the shows on naag.com.  I was so busy running from show to show and writing and more writing that I didn't have time to post my outfits as I had promised, so above is one of them.  This is me backstage the Rebecca Minkoff show at Lincoln Center, getting ready to interview her and her beauty team.  I'll keep posting more over the next few days! xo


New York Fashion Week, New Shoe Game, #moonslutboots

Wedges- Senso

With New York Fashion Week officially beginning tomorrow (but with shows beginning as early as this morning) I'm excited but also trying to center myself. Jesus Christ. Breathe.  NYFW has turned into more like a two week thing...not to mention the prep before hand.  I'll be covering shows the entire week and, with attending at at least five shows a day, it's really important to be comfortable but also to look good.  My brain is a little fried and actually the last thing I want to think about are my outfits. So I thought it would be a good plan to get a pair of statement shoes that would standout no matter how plain the outfit, and just rock them most of the week in varying ways. It was love at first site with these gold wedges that I found at Shoe Market in Brooklyn by Senso .  So what if they look a little like moon slut boots?  NBD.  This week I'll be posting various ways I'll wear them to the shows.

Oh hai! My name is Rachel and I'm wearing #moonslutboots.
That is a real, live, ostrich behind me.  No it's not. Liar.

Oh hai!! This is my #catboyfriend Murphy.  I rely on him for way too much affection and piss him off constantly. Love.
