So I was at Columbia College to do some photography and I came across this helpful poster board in the fashion department alerting me to the new fall trends titled "It's Raining Trends" I absolutely LOVE that one of the trends is apparently "orange". Also listed is "Tuxedo Inspired". BAM!
Anyway...Somehow they totally missed THIS trend (below) The "Betsey Johnson Insane OOT Wolf Lover Dream Catcher Ceramic Necklace Trend". Why the!

The movie Barbarella from the late 60s has been one of my favorite movies since I first saw it on TV as a child. When I was 12 recorded the audio onto cassette tapes to listen to in the car with my brother who was also obsessed with the film. Last week Dawn Roscoe took some photos and I styled this amazing model named Lindsay Lee. Check them out on my website--here is one that's not on there and the inspiration from the video. Jane Fonda is such a dream!!!

So it's finally happened... I'm in Urban Outfitters and I realize that I have been here before 17 or so years ago when I was a young wannabe...flannel and thermals and baby dolls and D.M.s Now I know how all those people feel who are like, "I lived thought the eighties...I can't believe people are wearing neon...etc." And although I don't mind a little lumberjack chic...I prefer this:

I would totally drive it 20 miles outside the city to the edge of a freaky swamp, open the vertical doors and walk 20 feet away and take a photograph. Then I would show that photograph to an airbrush artist friend of mine and have him copy the photograph on to the side of my building.
Went to Myopic
the other day to sell books cause I'm super broke and I had to wait around so I photographed some books covers. These are my nominees for Worst Graphic Design, Most Unnecessary Subject Matter, Dumbest Title and Most Hideous Artwork on a cover. You can match them up to the pictures I'm sure.
On a more positive note I did find the Wu-Tang Manual which I had never read before. It included a map of the New York City area that showed where all the members of the Wu-Tang Clan lived.

I love when a menu is picture based and there are several different "combinations" that can be easily ordered. Also I love an abbrev that is like somthing a teenager made up but is also the name of a legitimate business!!! Because what does BAF mean?? BUENOS AIRES FOREVER of course! Yum! (Also it is hard to see from the glare but there is a Washington monument type thing drawn on the left side with the letters BAF written on it...can you see it?!)

What is going on here I don't know...but it is amazing because this dude was camped out in front of Walgreens on Michigan Ave with this crazy person poster that all the crummy sugarbag tourist were looking at (or trying not to). So badass.

My favorite Fox News Anchor Byron Harlan has done it again. Tonight he managed to use the phrase "making whoopie", referred to California as "Cali-forn-I.A." and called men "dudes". I just discovered his blog, which is basically just an anti-Obama rant. Check out my previous post on the man. Or watch him on Fox News Chicago at 10!

Brittany and I watched the fabulous film "She Devil" yesterday. Made in 1989, Rosanne plays a jilted mother of two and her style is a vision of the hipsters to come! Check out her riot grrl/Janeane Garofalo 90's look below and her hipster '00 "special needs" look on top. HA!

If you can see in the picture this milk expired on the 26th. Today is THE FIRST OF THE MONTH. When I brought it to the attention of the dude behind the counter he asked me to "pick out another" and put it back in the case. WHAAAAA!!!??
