More of the same. Marie Claire Italia March 2009.

"Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta.

She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita."

Is that not some of the most amazing writing ever? Amazing.

cherry blossoms

dear creatures lookbook

The first cherry blossoms have been popping up and springing to life throughout campus the last few days. Makes me want to wear cream colored knee highs heart-shaped sunnies and tease my hair into the infamous Bardot-bed-head. Dreamy. If only it would get to just about 70 degrees! ssssoo close.

I am ready for the spring.

photos taken by my best friend and blogger, Allegra of The Good News Paper. if you're in the Baltimore area, hail from NYC, or just appreciate a good writer and a bit of sunshine in today's all-too cloudy reality, i highly recommend browsing her musings of life's brighter side.

don't worry be irie

white wine happy hours beach side, a 40 foot cliff i jumped off of, and some beautiful scenic shots. the sunsets in negril are surreal. ultraviolet reds and oranges, stripes of purple and sky blue peaking through.

photos taken by myself and others.

i want to be a forester run through the moss on high heels

Meant to post this a while ago. Utterly unique and haunting. Cool cool video and interesting sound. One of those you gotta listen to a few times.

Future Reflections

This is amusing.

Is it just me, or does that one dress look uncannily like Alexander Wang's sheer frock from last season?

I know I've seen things like this before, but somehow, it just seems better. That chainmail vest makes me die a little inside.
