it's a moving party!


Clothes Stories has moved to a new hood... Simone Rey!  Simone Rey is a really nice place to live because besides having closets full of nice things to wear, there is food, kids, adventure, and other people I adore hanging out with.  Yay!  I don't have to eat my clothes!  Don't you want to know what that photo above is all about?  Find out here.  So come check it out, and please continue to follow my Clothes Stories there.

awesome winter hair

                   







Winter hair.  Black and white can be so elegant.  I love white hair.  White as air.  White as wind.  White as the snow.  I think my outfit was inspired by the two art shows I saw on Sunday.  Yes, that can happen to you.  One day you are looking at someone's art, and the next day you're wearing it.

faultline and falsettos (shell-ed), oil and wax on canvas, 30" x 24", 2013 by Joseph Lee.  

Angel, linocut, edition of 50, 1992 by Elsa Flores.  Printed in collaboration with El Nopal Press.  El Nopal.  The coolest.  See this print at off ramp gallery in Altadena.  Go now through January 12, 2014.  2014!  It's pretty there.  It's really not that far away.  Nice old trees.

Elevate

The purpose of dressing is to elevate.  That's what I'm thinking today.  Taking off for a walk to the beach yesterday, I needed to make this day special.   Again, that pomp and circumstance.  I am capable of flying in this outfit. I kind of want a broom like Kiki's Delivery Service. I could do more than deliver some cakes, however, in this outfit. I might cruise over Milan in these boots, and sprinkle an art installation all over Florence' Uffizi Gallery that brings to light our connection to nature, our connection to each other. How's that for concluding Thanksgiving break?

Boots: Italian, Dress: Levi's, Sweater: Vintage, Purse: Vintage, Sunglasses: Tokyo Shop
