Somewhere deep in my heart is the growing urge to sell all my possessions just to get my hands on ONE beautiful hand crafted thing by Valentino. (Maybe it’s not so deep, actually)

Their Pre-Fall 2014 Collection is too perfect for words. Clean, simplistic, but detailed and so so extravagant. 

Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2014 Couture.  A perfect case of layering and loving the diversity shake up.  

It’s always difficult to find the real life wearability in couture shows mainly due to the vast difference in quality, texture, and boldness. These looks are from Chanel’s Fall 2014 Couture and maybe it’s the lack of sky high heels - but I could see these worn on a clean Parisian street. 

One of the most powerful pieces of love advice I’ve ever heard was in a video interview with a 73-year-old costume designer, Roberta Haze. In the video, from a documentary in progress called Monogamy & Its Discontents, Haze says that the key to a good relationship is being able to accept that everyone expresses affection differently. “I’m trying to learn, at 73, to believe and feel and internalize that somebody loves me their way,” she says. Being able to do this involves trust, she argues. Even if your partner isn’t doing the demonstrative things you have in your agenda, she says, you have to “let them love you the way they love you, not the way you want to be loved.”

"Saddest moment? How am I supposed to choose between losing my parents and seeing my friends die in Vietnam? I don’t categorize those things. Listen, a person is like a rubber band ball. We’ve all got a lot of bad rubber bands, and a lot of good rubber bands, and they’re all wrapped up together. And you’ve got to have both types of bands or your rubber band ball ain’t gonna bounce. And no use trying to untangle them. You know what I’m saying?"

Beautiful words.

a lot of folks have asked me if i’m going to coachella/any other festivals this year. here is my answer.

there is so much I could say about coachella, but for now, I will just say that it’s a huge cash-grab and I think you’re kind of a sucker if you spend that obscene amount of money to…

The shoot: Women’s accessories with a masculine spin.  Behind the scenes note, it was fucking cold.
