new Hair cut!!

back view. front
anyways, this picture does not do my new hair cut justice, it's super short in the back and BRIGHT orange. It's reminiscent of high school circa 1994.

I've wanted to make a terrarium for the past year or so, but I've always been too intimidated to try,until today! look at what I made.


Lately I've been really into making dioramas. Here's what I can up with!! I love the first one, there are 16 hand painted butterflies in this book:)this was inspired by my Philly hood
I call this one "Doll"
More butterflies.

I hope you think them.

fashion week

New York Fashion Week is 1/2 way through and the Fall 2010 RTW shows are up!!!

check them out for free at

here are some of my top pics so far:

....some seriously inspiring truly great American sportswear with a twist.

thank you fashion week!

Alexander Wang

Wang really delivers with an amazing show of menswear inspired 'banker chic' mixing tailored silhouettes of cropped blazers + vests and with thick ribbed leg-warmers for a sexy feel.

Shipley & Halmos

Since their first collection for Fall 2008, ex-Trovata members Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos have been updating classics and key separates pieces with a great youthful feel.


Thakoon has always been known for his ultra-fem draped printed dresses, but this season he turns towards a new theme with dark tones, textures and furs: fox, mink and raccoon.

Rag & Bone

The ambitious duo presented their cool, classic separates collection packed with attitude which took inspiration from the "crazy English guys who climbed Mount Everest in the 20's in tweed". Amazingly layered chunky tweeds, marled yarns, and even spins of traditional fairisle patterns.
