I Die Friday and Vagina Sculptures for the Home

Some goodies for your ocular enjoyment to send you off on this long weekend!  At the start of the month I  moved into my first apartment solo in NYC! For those of you non-NYCers- this is HUGE. Living alone in this city, if you don't come from oil money, is kind of like finding a decent dude: not impossible but the chances are very slim and you might be closer to 40 when it happens. So I'm ecstatic about landing a Greenpoint studio for an unGODLY reasonable price. I've been obsessing about interior design for about three weeks straight. Much more capable and interested in dressing people but, for the first time ever, I have an interest in interior spaces. I've always felt a little aspergers-y when it comes to interior decorating, not knowing when and where is right or enough, but I'm committed to learning and I'm having fun doing it. Midcentury modern furniture is turning out to be my weakness and someone might have to hold me back from purchasing the above $825 Michael Rosenberg Skyscraper Table. Straight jacket hold me back.

Side note. I was at TJ Maxx this week because, let's be honest, they sometimes  have some amazing steals. And I found this:


Have a great weekend!!!



Hats Are Hard

Siwy Rio, $159 

The Cold Hard Truth is hats are hard to pull off. Mostly because, if you wear a hat in 2012 America,  people WILL judge you. To break it down: people judge you a lot but if you wear a hat they will judge you more. This brings me to my final point - FEDORAS SUCK. I know this point has been made quite a bit but I still see them too much. Seriously just don't do it.  Fedoras had a moment, for one month - it was Brooklyn circa summer  2008 when MGMT played Metropolitan Pool. Then the moment died of diabetus and the ashes were scattered into the wind. Unfortunately those ashes landed in Midtown and were swallowed by people who would eventually occupy overpriced Williamsburg high rises and clog the L train stairs. Besides fedoras, these Midtown transplants would also bring with them flip flops, polo shirts, and maxi dresses while systematically turning Bedford Avenue into St. Marks place.

But I'm not judging. 

Anyways. Clothes. Above are a few great summer options to wear with the Reiss Ava wide brim hat I put on yesterday and walked out of Bloomingdale's wearing -- I did pay for it, reluctantly. Hats are SO risky they really should be free, right? But I liked this hat. We got along. And I think it fit my coloring and features well? Plus the sales girl told me I looked beautiful. I'm sure she really meant it and was not concerned about commission. Finally, this hat is not a Fedora. 

I think this hat will go well with light colored boyfriend shirts and denim shorts this summer. I love these Siwy Rio shorts- I wore a lot of denim diapers last summer (shorts so tiny your ass sticks out) and I'm feeling a tad more modest lately. These Siwy shorts are a really nice fresh take and prevent overexposure. Equipment button downs are my jam. They are kinda pricy but so perfect 100% of the time.

I'll leave you lovely people on this note: wide brims, wide brims, wide brims FEDORAS, FEDORAS, FEDORAS. In this context 'wide brim' is not a sexual term, it is the only kind of hat acceptable this summer.

Stay chic HUNNNTY (as my friend, the beautiful Marty Harper would say).
