In partnership with What Goes Around Comes Around.
Staying true to What Goes Around Comes Around and the name of its’ store, last night I–as the title of this post suggests–went around and came around. Co-hosting with Elizabeth Spiridakis of White Lightning and Tiffany Gong of Six Sick Girls spoke great lengths to my blog’s aesthetic.
Photograhed above: Elizabeth talking to John Jannuzzi, Tiffany Gong. As you can see, they are trendy mo’frikas. Also, chronic man repellers.
Here’s me, just chatting away with my favorite mannequin, talking cow lick fur and shopping vintage
with Naomi Nevitt
of Teen Vogue.
(In case you’re wondering, I’m wearing an Elise Overland dress
with a Charlotte Ronson utility blouse.
So yes, last night I had copious amounts of fun, particularly because upon arrival I had a short chit-chat with the photographer on site and this is how our conversation went.
“Hi, I’m Man Repeller.”
“That’s your name?
“No…well, yes. In any case, could you do me a huge favor, puh puh puh p-lease?”
“Sure, but I will not give you my first born.”
“Oh. Fail. Ok. Bye.”
Just kidding, that’s not how the second part of our conversation panned out. I asked him to pay special attention to any and all of the particularly man-repelling ensembles. I feared he wouldn’t exactly understand so I followed my remark with: when you see a girl being complimented by other girls on her cool outfit but you yourself think ‘I wouldn’t bang her if we were the last two people on planet earth’…take a photo. The outcome was excellent, his photos substantiated more of my theories. Evidence rests below.
(one of the loverly ladies that turned me on to Pose
) aptly combines a polka dot turban with a striped dress.
Here I am–not particularly repelling (I was coming from a family function, THROW ME A BOWNER
)–with Carol Han, half of CA Creative,
the crazy culottes that orchestrated the entire event.
A little background about this image: I saw the fur, I saw the printed harems, I signaled to the photographer and screamed: snappy, snappy! Clicky, clicky! As you can see, I’m gleefully watching in the background (to the left.) Here’s to subtle plaid and leopard accents.
As you can see, Tiffany only surrounds herself with professional man repellers. This feels like a scene out of Pollyanna goes to Fashion Week.
Here, I rock out with my zipper out while perving around with the Man Getter
(to my left), Semi Repeller
(to my right) and Robi
. Evidently, at WWD, on Wednesdays they wear black.
It should be noted that the photographer’s task of the night was not a very difficult one: look at the spermicide creative juice flowing around the room, swooning the vintage treasures.
A bit of their conversation I’m going to go ahead and make up: “Alright girlfriend, it’s these or my birth control, what do you say?” “Is the turban not enough?”
And finally, as the night comes to a close…
Elizabeth steals the show when she gears up to fly off later to meet her counterpart, bat-man and fight crime. You, White Lightning, are a Renaissance woman.
