In the Details

Here are some photos that have emerged from my iPhone Instagram album. I’m having a moment when I’m not really sure why I deem this sort of thing worthy of blog space, but in any case, I’m sharing. That’s the thing about being your own editor. You can overrule your better judgment and shit. You can also end your sentences with phrases like “and shit.” Also though, I don’t discriminate against non-iPhone, non-Instagram users. Maybe some people want to see these photos. So without further adieu, images of various body parts decorated by cool jewels and other things of similar sorts.
necklace: Kimberly Baker
For those of you that were confused about the whereabouts of the Bronx Zoo Cobra, he was mating on my neck. 
…Layered on with these kitschy little budget wins that hail from Lucid New York. I am all about novelty neck wear. 
shoes: Valentino. I called this one “like mother like daughter.” I copy everything my mom does. Can you guess which one is me? I’ll give you a hint, I am not wearing the coated J Brand skinny gray jeans. For a change.
The day my lady boner met it’s version of Viagra. Hello, eleventh object.
I like layering everything. Rings are no exception. Pack to stack, that’s my motto. (From bottom: Rachel Rachel Roy, TOMTOM x 3 and an old eternity band my mother gave me. Thinking about it now, it is fairly unusual that I’m running around wearing a ring my father gave to my mother in an effort to express his love. Something Freudian is happening.)
Once again from the treasure chest that is KimberlyBaker.com, a perma-stacked ring.
And what I did to it. Fore and ring-finger rings by Fallon via Shop the Far Out and TOMTOM.
Oh look, some more fancy fingers. Art deco ring is YSL and the cocktail ring with the little froggy on it is from Lucid New York. 
Once upon a time the sun still shined. And when that happened, I spent a great deal of time perving around the Meat Packing District with my main squeeze, Danielle Snyder of Dannijo. She’s the Danni, Jodie, her sister, is the Jo. In the above photo, Danni(jo) eats my finger, adorned by her Jacinda ring in a shadow.
blouse: Equipment, jeans: Rag & Bone. Monochrome is everything. While yes, the aforementioned is a sweeping statement of sorts, I intend to pay forward explanation to the public in a meaningful way. This is foreshadowing a post that will appear in the coming two weeks. Talk about insider access, roight? Roight?
This is a photo I took of myself in a taxi cab while sitting in perpetual traffic that made me want to kill myself. As it happens, snapping photos of oneself is a fantastic alternative to suicide.
My new gilded patio furniture inspired wedges by Proenza Schouler are perfect for sitting on gilded patio furniture. 
And finally, meet my insides.
  It’s good to know ya, hunks.

On an unrelated but equally important topic…tomorrow, I ombre. What do you think? Without your seal of approval, I can’t do it.

    I rather love your insides. Enjoy sitting on patio furniture – just be wary of patio-furniture-thigh-and-bum-print. Though, who knows – perhaps that works as a man repeller. New idea discovered? If so, know where you heard it.

    Loving the pix, sis: Keep posting !

    p.s. I know more about your shoe collection — worn by some random blogger I've never met — than I do about those worn by my friends/coworkers that I see everyday.

    NOW, HOW PRECIOUS IS THAT?!! :D

    Ombre please! Ombre for the love of God. I only ask you to so that I may live vicariously through you (once again).

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/05345225002773583958 My Style Canvas

    Go ombre if your heart so desires, though I think your dark hair is very striking.

    Also–love your Kimberly Baker pieces. I own a couple of pieces by her that I wear all the time. She makes the classiest skulliest things ever.

    Your closet is faboosh, too. Great shoes and organizational skills you have, my dear.

    That shoe collection is amazing! And the MATCHING!? Valentinos you guys have…. I'm happy if I even get to borrow my moms designer heels.
    Does your mother work in fashion? Or where do you get all these wonderful in season designer items?

    Hi, I don't know if you already know, but your blog was in the brazilian Vogue. I had already visited your blog before and now I'm very happy that more people from Brazil can now visit your blog.
    Kisses, Débora.

    I love: the fact that you and your mum have the same VALENTINO shoes, the way in which you layer your rings, the green shirt + green jeans (hello inspiration!?) and your amazing wall of the most perfect shoes.
    That is all.

    don't think you should do blonde ombre… dark red/burgundy maybe

  • Anonymous

    you are funny. finally someone who doesn't take themselves too seriously…

    dig instagram….would love to follow.

    and yay with the ombre….i've had it for over a year now and i just updated and went way more blonde to try to get in the springtime mode…

    what's up with this ny weather? crazy!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/08523869494951100163 Pearls

    oooh I've been in love with the ombre hair look for a while now. You must do it. You must! I will have to check with my boyfriend (as I do with all your posts) to double-check and ensure that it is man-repelling though.

    Today you can access the internet from a pc, from a laptop, from a smart phone, from a tablet, and so on, you get the idea?.. Fragmentation!
