zipper dress coverage

here's cory in the newest foam magazine wearing sophomore's zipper dress, as styled by chrissie miller. it looks great with a pretty bra showing.
i got this magazine free in a gift bag from the last keep a breast event, and i wrote it off as a whatevs surfy mag and threw it in my pile to be used as what we call "krinkle" (crumpled fashion mag pages used for packing in our bona drag boxes). but as i was tearing pages, i realized that there's actually some pretty good shit in there.

"you and i both know animation is the most important thing in the world"

monster road. a great documentary about bruce bickford, the claymation animator. i can't believe we've never heard anything about this one before!

here's a little excerpt. that's his father in the beginning. no wonder bruce is part crazy/part genius.

the soundtrack seemed whatevs at first, but now i love it - kinda reminds me of j mascis : gas, food and lodging.

people and their cats

i just recently came across this blog that listed a whole bunch of awesome pics of famous people and their cats. here are my favs:
frank zappa, basically my dad
nicolas cage, i love him even more now.
truman capote and a fucking beautiful cat.
i'll be scouring the animal shelters this weekend for a male siamese kitty to add to our family!

purple zipper dress

chrissie from sophomore just told me that they're making the zip dress in purple too, so i just added it as an option to prebook. also, she just had a nice write up in new york magazine.

that looks like the zipper dress hanging in her closet right behind her..

shade of winter

grey suede lattice platform booties just added to the shop yesterday. pair with thick black tights to wear in this exciting change of season. i love the strong curved heel! when i think real real hard sometimes i can see the future of the items i carry. i see these worn with dark burgundy tights and a red dress at a holiday party in tennessee. or maybe it's kentucky, i can't really tell.
this grey coat is so soft and comfy it's re-goddamn-diculous. it makes me want to move back to milwaukee for the winter. johnny friendly coat by she-bible.

boot crush continues

my gucci studded boots (that i don't own) were spotted on jakandjill today. us ladies went shopping on sunday and i was in that INSANE total shop mode with no logic getting in my way. we walked into the gucci store just so i could "try on" these boots. morrissey just happened to be playing, and i took that as a sign from the crystals around my neck telling me that everything is going to be ok if i needed to purchase these boots.

they were out of stock. and i left the store $2000 richer. i'm pretty sure everything is still going to be ok.

a desert romance

john and i took a magical road trip to the desert.
we stopped in idyllwild for lunch
john even offered to stop at every thrift store on the way! it was pure heaven... crap piled everywhere for days.
and then we arrived to our destination: 29 palms inn, the "forget me not" adobe was great being in the desert with absolutely nothing to do but sit and have a drink.rusty zorb photo by jmthis is right before we laid under the bright desert stars and john missed every shooting star cause he has ADD and he couldn't stare in the same spot for longer than a minute.continental hard boiled egg breakfast.
bye bungalow.
