Check out this lovely interview with Tavi Gevinson, being all uniquely adorable, as per usual, and opening up her room and closet to her adoring public. I am a huge fan of hers and specifically, the online ‘zine she started, Rookie Mag; I wish something like this would’ve existed during my tween/teen years! She encapsulates all the uncertainty and wonder that is young womanhood so eloquently and has created a space on the vast WonderfulWideWeb where girls can feel like they aren’t alone [“Wait.. other people think this/go through this/worry about this? Phew!”]….all the while maintaining her quirky style and emphasizing fashion and art as necessary forms of self-expression.
#nowplaying The Boss’s “I’m on Fire (Cousin Cole’s Bad Desire Mix)”
Note: I do not endorse the image set to this song, WTF?
My Miss Moss “fangirl status” grows every time I reed each amazing post and listen to one of her music mixes. I wish she didn’t live in gosh darn South Africa so we could be friends! I just know that we would get along famously.
This song is on the “There’s Something About Us” compilation and although it was created a year ago, I just had my first listen last week [you can rest easy tonight knowing that I now have all of them downloaded, praise Jebus]. The original version is one of my favorite “wish it were longer” songs [also see: this ink-inspiring tune] and now, guess what?! it has doubled in length and been set to a catchy beat thanks to some dude named Cousin Cole. Woot!
I also really like the version of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love” be found on the same mix. I heart you, MM!
That’s all for now. Gotta go gaze at some #NYFW photos!
I think my last “song only” post was a JAMC tune as well. Trend alert!
Ms. Wintour was interviewed on “CBS Sunday Morning” today to discuss Vogue’s 120th anniversary commemorative book of cover photographs AND the release of the magazine’s online archives [Who doesn’t have an extra $1,500 laying around?!]. I’m hoping my limited access as a subscriber will provide endless hours of zone-out daydream time. Always excitement and innovation from the best! Cheers,
On repeat in #6.
#nowplaying The Magnetic Fields 69 Love Songs: Vol. 3
I just couldn’t resist. This blog be blowin’ up!
A nice, chill Sunday today; I went to yoga in the AM and headed to Alberta in the PM for a pen-to-page session at Caffe Vita.
A few things of note:
- I spent some time this evening cleaning out, rearranging, and sorting my jewel closet. For me, if I can’t see an item it basically doesn’t exist, so I tried my best to bring a lot of pieces to a more visible position. It also got the wheels a’ churnin’ for another 30 Days of Jewels challenge…. be excited!!
- Marilyn Minter is one of my favorite artists and I’m giddy reeding all the press she is getting for her exhibition opening at Salon 94 in NYC. I think I’d wet myself if I ever got to see one of her works in person; they speak to me so much on the tiny computer screen that thinking of them larger than life is wonderfully overwhelming. Behold the video component of this exhibition “I’m Not Much, But I’m All I Think About.”
