Mark Twain was right…

“The coldest winter I ever saw was the summer I spent in San Francisco.”
It’s Memorial Day weekend. I imagine other people are water skiing on a lake somewhere. But when you live in a place that’s cool in the summer, like San Francisco, or if you live on a coast with a Marine Layer, [...]

Back to Nature….

Amy Stein is awesome. Her work is surreal and cinematic it sits on the edge of playfulness and uneasiness… When I saw this photo, I thought, “holy crap, that’s EXACTLY why I don’t live in the suburbs” I’m kidding.

Inspiration: Orly Cogan

Orly Cogan’s “Wonder of You” show at Steven Wolf Gallery. The show is a series of embroidery on vintage fabrics, natural and fantastic scenes of sex and cake and other things. The subject matter articulates the post-modern feminine condition (which is at best a confusing paradoxical mess) in an honest and whimsical way. It’s [...]

No time to…

You can’t have an article about Orly Cogan without mentioning Locher’s, a Parisian label. Designed by Swiss naughty & nice Nichole Locher, this year’s line is ‘preverted with a touch of class’. Each blouse is embroidered with a little saying, that, well, you’re mum wouldn’t wear, and probably make your grandmother blush. Heck, some of [...]

It’s a gorgeous day. I’m wearing a Bebe dress I love for it’s little lipsticks… but normally wear with layers. I feel a bit exposed, but it’s summer, and everyone is a little.
