Gold + Creepers

If I could be wearing any shoe in the world right now, it would be these gold Chanel creepers.

That is all.

Summer + 2012

For the summer of 2012, I was awarded an undergraduate research grant from Wash U to study textiles in Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Myanmar). Although I have travelled all my life I’ve never had the opportunity to focus a trip solely on textiles and design.
My goal was to understand how Southeast Asian designers are manipulating traditional textiles to appeal to modern consumers, along with learning the process of creating a textile from beginning to end. I also focused on recognizing and understanding important motifs in traditional textiles and what cultural, geological and sociological differences effect and influence their production and design.  My research involved visiting silk farms, weaving factories and artisan markets.

SOOO I decided to make a movie about the things I saw ( I couldn't nearly incorporate everything I wanted to without making a 5 hour movie) but its a short and sweet glimpse into some of the experiences I had.

Check it out and enjoy.
{Editor's note: for the ultimate viewing experience, have it large screen and the music blasting}

Diamond + Rings

Last night, my friend Richard and I went to the concert venue/club/bar Plush in downtown Saint Louis to see a Stars concert. Excellent. But as great as Stars are (check out Take Me to the Riot), their opener, Canadian-born Diamond Rings (great stage name right?) stole the show.

Dressed in a white wife beater, white skinny jeans and his shaved head with a blonde crop of hair, his constant state of dancing was both contagious and an excellent form of entertainment. If he's ever in your general vicinity, do yourself a favor and check him out.

"I'm Just Me" was one of my favorite songs he played, but his gusto for life doesn't come across in the music video quite as well as the real thing.

rock on Diamond Rings. rock on.

Kinetic + Rain

Whilst in the Singapore Changi Airport over the summer (AMAZING airport. It has won over 390 awards since opening in 1981 including Best International Transit award this year. Anywho, I digress) I saw, from afar, the most magical art installation piece I've ever laid eyes upon. From where I was standing, it seemed as though hundreds of little silver droplets (608 to be exact) were not only floating midair, but fluidly moving and changing shapes from one poetic form to another. Truly breathtaking. Obviously it's all done with programmed wires, but the effect from afar is tremendous. It's titled "Kinetic Rain" and was created by ART+COM for Terminal 1. 

Check out the video below to get a glimpse of what I'm talking about.
And if you're ever in Singapore, don't miss it.

I'm in a bit of a DIY mood on this rainy afernoon. Check this ish out: SPIKED COMBS. 
Combs never seem to stay put in my hair, but maybe the spikes will somehow help...

Check out Honestly...WTF's how-to here.

I think I actually might go ahead and try this one out. 
It's got this kind of dinasour-chic vibe going on. 
Like stegosaurus-meets-punk. 
SO in right now.


On days like today (rainy, grey, sad) it makes me want to want to wear rain jackets. But I never do.

HOWEVER, if I had a ultra-hip SEE-THRU RAIN-CAPE (!!!), I might be more inclined to don some waterproof gear.

Check out A Pair and A Spare's super easy DIY rain-cape here. I'm diggin it. 

St. + Paddy

This shirt makes me happy whenever I wear it.
 Its just so... obtrusive.
But in a good way.
