chungking express

Perhaps my new favorite movie. At times bizarre, but so authentic, romantic, and touching. 

Tuesday, September 21, 2010


is a man standing in the hallway
waiting for one of 
both doors 
ahead and behind him
to open.

Knowing how the countertops
and embossed dishware,
in the porcelain sink or
stacked behind glass pantry doors,
would look in any light of day,

he tells himself to hope
for the door ahead
to open first.

But he tells himself this
while counting the change,
thumb to forefinger,
the coins now greasy with 
fingertip dew,
in the pocket of his gray slacks.

His pants with the sweaty sheen  
of too much ironing
under her hand.

vogue 2010 yellowhaze

The barrette, the hat, the oversized coats and sweaters, what a buttery entrance into fall. My response:

yellow haze

Hmm, how to reconcile?

Rag & Bone


Pondering how to marry these two trends for my fall look. Can you wear a camel trench with jean leggings? Maybe I'll just have to come to terms with my split personality on this one.

DIY wrap skirt

This might be inspiration enough for my first ever DIY... sheer fabric wrapped into a skirt. Seems simple enough... hubris.
