desolation yes, hesitation no


I dunno about you guys, but I'm going to party tonight like the Mayan calendar predicts the end of the world. You dig?

Thanks to the few of you who have gone on this journey with me for the past--GASP--3 years. I still have no idea what I'm doing, but I guess I'm doing it.

got green?

wearing T by Alexander Wang sweater, Madewell blouse

Digging this painterly rendition of an ombre nail. It's like a Picasso*--from far away it looks pretty cool but up close it's a big 'ol mess.

Ed. note: Thanks to a commenter who is smarter than me (and has a better memory) I now stand corrected that I actually meant a MONET. No, I didn't take any art history classes in college. And no, that's not an excuse. I should at least have Clueless memorized by now.

non denominational gift giving


wearing Madewell shirt and sweater, Zara jeans, Made by Elves booties, vintage Tibetan bracelet and silver ring (gifts from my sister!) and Commes Des garcons wallet (gift from my parents)

For a heeb, I made out pretty well this Christmas. My sister (pictured above in some kind of graceless arabesque) brought me back some real goodies from her trip to India earlier this year, and my mom made my dreams come true by giving me the CDG wallet I'd been ogling/begging for. Plus, I was privileged to get to spend the holiday with this handsome devil:


Yep, that's Kobe wearing his elf costume, an indignity he suffers quite well when given the chance to snarf down treats. Love that little bugger.

Hope everyone's Christmas/Hanukkah/long weekend was wonderful!

I feel like cameras should just follow us around


wearing vintage dress, belt, and blazer, Banana Republic gloves and bag, vintage Frye boots

Any glance at the "trending" list on twitter will tell you that it's generally not an incubator for latent genius. Rather, it is a refuge for the lowest common denominator to discuss important issues like #thingsthatuse2BeCool and what happens #whenblackpeoplegetpaid.

However, HOWEVER! Sometimes there's some truly inspired shit on Twitter too. And @shitgirlssay tops my list of the most highlarious accounts. And now it's a Youtube series that I'm predictably obsessed with. It's like they followed me around for a week and recorded everything I said, then had a dude dress in drag and imitate me. How did they know this is exactly what I sound like?!

Clothing note: just rediscovered this schoolboy blazer under my bed and I still like it. Or I like it again. Either way, it'll be back in rotation for the winter.

wearing Acne jacket, Madewell blouse, Zara pants, Manolo Blahnik heels, F21 rings

I've got Acne!!! No, not just on my face! On my body! Oh wait--not the puss-filled inflamed pore kind--the Swedish kind. Yes, I caved into my baser instincts and blew a wad of cash on this uuhhhhhmmaaaaazing jacket you see here. It was on sale though, so I am officially NOT GUILTY of conspicuous overindulgence. I'm just the proud owner of a jacket that, let's be honest, I'm going to wear the living snot out of. It's already come in handy for an unusually cold weekend. And it's a lot more comfortable than 5" heels. Can I get an amen?

wearing Reliquary vintage jacket, old as hell Three Dots turtleneck, J Crew skirt, UO tights, Missoni for Target shoes, BR cuff, Stein Mart necklace, vintage ring

BOO YAH for rolling clothing racks. On Sunday night I set aside a week's worth of clothing and getting dressed has been a breeze ever since. And more creative than usual, I might add. I have these crappy pictures to prove it.

country christmas


I'm wearing: vintage Saks Fifth Avenue blouse, thrifted BCBG leather skirt, friend's bolo tie, vintage roper boots. The fringed cowboy shirt and cow-print shoes belong to other partygoers.

Like any real jew, Christmas fills me with an irrepressible glee. Especially Christmas parties. Especially if they're theme parties. So obviously, my head pretty much exploded this weekend when I attended a Country themed Christmas party at our friends' house. The night was all Johnny Cash, bourbon, and Victory rolls. I would do my hair like this every day if I could.
