make it stop

So here's the reality: It is punishingly anger-makingly hot in New York. It's been above 90 degrees every day for about 2 weeks, with no end in sight (sorry, it *may* be 89 on Thursday). The humidity is like a filthy wet blanket from hell.

I hate it. Can you tell?

I am not tropical! I do not THRIVE in this shit! I like cool breezes and tights and ARID CLIMATES and the ability to keep my windows open without feeling like I am in a Turkish bath.

And so.
This makes "style blogging" a tad TRYING as my style is like..whatever sticks to me the least.

Truth be told, I am rarely leaving the house (working from home RULES, even though I miss my officemates..) and so my style is a kimono robe, unwashed hair, and sometimes a tie-dyed Metallica tee-shirt (aw, purchased almost exactly ONE YEAR AGO !).

But I mean.


These shoes exist in my life.
So, sometimes I go outside.

To wear Miu Miu clogs.
Obvs.

DRESS: VINTAGE FROM MARKET PUBLIQUE // SHOES: MIU MIU, DUH // BAG: MAROON EELSKIN TOTE: GIFT FROM MARKET PUBLIQUE (THANK YOU, PAMELA!)

I love them madly. I AM SO TALL IN THEM. It's dizzying up here.
Here is a lovely shot not only of my new crazy dress, but of the lovely detritus that is my behind-the-desk space.
Please note my handmade tote (I made this thing about 10 yrs ago!): OUIJA LIKES BOYS AT NIGHT. One of my favorite lines in Unzipped, doy.


Our office is so cute, I mean you know you wish you worked here.

Self-timer freaks me out, I'm biting my nails at that orange blinking light on my Lumix, givin' me a HEART ATTACK. How do people do this on the regs? I guess it gets easier.


What I do when I am alone, aside from taking photos:


Sit on Lesley's desk (MISS YOU) and talk to Teddy Ruxpin about his ravioli hands.
Don't tell him I told you, but he is sooooo fucking over this summer weather, too.

Gotta go, me and Teddy are gonna get coconut waters at the bodega and hang outside for a sec while he smokes a cigarette.

PS. It's been one year since the Vision Quest road trip of 09, and today is the 1st birthday of my teenytinytattoo !


HAPPY FIRST TATTOO-NNIVERSARY, crook of my right arm! You don't look a day over a day.
I sorta wanna celebrate by getting another one.....? To be continued!

Cara said...

Is the tattoo because of White Lightning? (looks like a lightning bolt)
PLEASE tell me your secert to walking in clogs? PLEASE.
Oh and the self timer light; you never get used to it. I always end up pulling face by the time it goes off. Scary stuff.

I'm jealous. Wish I had the heat you have over in New York. Seriously in Glasgow it's always tipping it down so I end up with soggy feet and frizzy hair.

Clogs are so cute though

I am forever in your debt for writing about the trials of disgusting heat on one's personal wardrobe/style.

I become a cranky man when it gets too hot and I can feel the sweat dirtying my hair. Style, as much as I hate to say it, becomes secondary to my mental well-being.

That being said, I love you in those Miu Miu clogs. I love that you brave the heat wave for a shot of leg.

THOSE SHOES BELONG IN MY LIFE

Izzy said...

No it really sucks. This heat is such an impediment to style. Would love to see more of that unagi tote, it intrigues me..

Kylie said...

I laughed so hard when I first saw that Teddy Ruxbin picture on the FK tumblr. He still gets me.

Yeah, so I love this outfit. Good call on taking the plunge with the clogs. Sooo dope, and so you.

Good luck not melting!

This is EXACTLY how I have been feeling about the heat. I am so, so, SO over it.

And I also would leave the house for the sole purpose of wearing Miu Miu clogs. I love them!

I could not agree more about the weather here (although today wasn't as bad), but those clogs were made to be shown off! Amazing.
