"The hope is that after 8 years, I’ll be made a partner. Until then, the job description basically states that I will be worked to death.""So what’s your greatest fear about the next 8 years?""Turning 40 and not having a personal life. Finding out that I’ve gotten where I want to be, but there’s nobody in my life to give a shit about where I am or what I’ve done."

  2. Who doesn’t love a little Anna Wintour in their life? Or for that matter a little fur?
Front row, alone, uncluttered. What’s captured here is one feel of the runway show. The part where you know you’re dressed in your best, you’re seeing the best, and it’s intimate. It doesn’t matter if you’re crammed together so tightly you can barely breath in an audience of 700 your relationship at that moment is between yourself and the fashion.

Homobiles Is San Francisco’s Queer And Community-Based Answer To Uber - “Moes gettin’ hoes where they needz to goes. In the end it’s the queers that are going to look out for the queers. No one else is going to do that…Part of that need stems from the fact that traditional forms of public transportation and taxis aren’t always a safe option; whether it’s discrimination based on appearance, gender identity, or even costume, queer riders often face unique challenges to traveling, even in a private cab.

  4. What’s great about this photo is the soft grey of everything around the blue. The photographer could have chosen a more traditional white background but the nuances of this blue and this fabric would have been completely lost. Edges would have been sharper, crisp, but here everything looks like it’s underwater. The tentacles the dress forms in movement mirror that underwater feel perfectly, but the feet are not covered up, resulting in a kind of birth of Venus feel. And the shoes! They push forward in this piece, disconnected from the rest of the outfit. The shoes give the piece a sense of movement that the swirling dress does not.

  9. A little holiday joy from the fabulous Coco Peru.

    Personal note: This is my first Christmas in NYC and my first without any friends or family so I keep feeling lonely but I just watch Coco and she makes me smile. I’m so grateful for her this holiday season.

About me

My heroes include Lady Gaga, Alexander McQueen, Marcia Tucker, Diana Vreeland, Dr. Sam Howell (my art history professor at FMU), Bill Cunningham, and many others. These people have helped to shape my ideas about style, art, and fashion; creating a mélange which draws upon every period, from antiquity to modern day pop culture. Here and now I will attempt to add my voice to all the others and in doing so I begin training my eye and mind to be more discerning and expressive on the subject of fashion as art and vice-versa art as fashion. Fashion is a way of living, therefore art is a way of life too.
