a lovely thrifted embroidered swan badge from tricia of bits and bobbins. much thanks, you made my day lady. and this is actually sunshine but it looks like moonshine… funny. you know what it reminds me of, the pebbles glowing in the moonlight that Hansel & Gretel follow home. i loved that.

i will always love this paired down rockabilly style.


Fionn MacDiarmid from the Male Model’s Streetstyle thread on TFS.


and even though i’m not obsessed with Elvis, I am so fascinated by early photos of him and Priscilla together. all that glossy black hair, bronzed skin, eyeliner. the way they match is eerie and beautiful.


and this photo is by Jonathan Leder.

From the 1970s french musical Peau d‘Âne by Jacques Demy. This was a favourite film of mine when I was little. I didn’t blog this before because the actual fairytale is disturbing but I have to share this sky dress…

And if I was in front of you right now, I would probably be jumping up and down saying- you have to watch this! There is a fairy godmother in a floaty lavender dress who bursts through a floral ceiling panel backwards. There are flowers everywhere actually, in what I can only call psychedelic pastels. And life size plastic elk. This is all in Peau d‘Âne’s bedroom. And not only a sky dress with moving glowing clouds but a moon dress as well. The sun dress isn’t included in this clip…

Thanks V for reminding me of this.

For Vancouverites, look at this wonderful bunch of films soon to be showing at Pacific Cinematheque- Signore & Signore: Leading Ladies of Italian Cinema. Seeing as I’ve been mentioning Italy a fair bit recently, this is so perfect for summer I can’t believe it, I am so in.

i’m getting really good at these titles i think.

i forgot to blog this wardrobe photo with my new/old Liberty tie.

and then i was reading one of my very favourite blogs the known universe, where [blogger] Jamie reminded me of Tom Wolfe’s dandyisms, for example…

[sorry i don’t have the photo credit for this.]

i don’t know how i went so long with my bloggings of menswear and my wardrobe that incorporates a fair amount of menswear and NOT mention one of my favourite writer’s known for his very particular tailored wardrobe?! he really is a hero of mine.

check out Jamie’s misadventures in NYC and Hong Kong for his organizing of the Stephen Sprouse section of the Louis Vuitton: A Passion for Creation show, which started as a Stephen Sprouse retrospective at Deitch Projects. Jamie was Stephen Sprouse’s assistant back in the day, and the way his blog reads, it’s like he is one of the few survivors of an 80s fashion ‘nam. i don’t actually read his blog for the fashion, though that’s great too but i read it because he just tells it like it is. and because he loves the beautiful and heroically lippy Deborah who has… just opened an Etsy store…

end of story!
