VOTE!

Whorange get out the vote 2014

"the biggest sin is sitting on your ass." -- florynce kennedy

voting day is today, darlings! better lace up your skates and roll on down to your local polling place. 

when i was young, my mom said, "if you don't vote, you can't complain when things don't go your way." not that i like to complain, but i'm pretty opinionated when it comes to a handful of issues and love to voice them in voting booth. in fact, i've voted in every presidential, midterm, and local election since i turned 18. guess you can say, i'm an election groupie.

also, when you vote, you get a groovy "i voted" sticker as a parting gift. the perfect accessory to take you from office-to-evening!

okay, enough chit chat. let's boogie in the voting booth!

Fine and Dandy: Grand Budapest Hotel Halloween

Fine and Dandy shop Grand Budapest Hotel Halloween

oh hello, darlings! remember me? i remember you. and let me say, you've never looked more smashing!

i'm opening the WHORANGE doors today to shine a spotlight on matt fox and enrique crame, the magnificent proprietors of new york's fine and dandy shop. this year, they won halloween with their head-to-toe channeling of concierge gustave h and lobby boy zero moustafa from the grand budapest hotel.

the threads. the vintage luggage. the mendl's box. the 'staches. the attitude. wes anderson would be proud!

congratulations, matt and enrique! thank you for keeping halloween haute and for always bringing how-to handsome to us all.

Hooray

Hooray DIY banner by Hank and Hunt

kittens, i've been working on a secret project for the last week. if all goes well, i'll be able to tell you later this year. anticipation!

i'm still in the thick of it, but wanted to take a brief pause to say HOORAY for side projects. i think this DIY banner on hank and hunt and photo pretty much captures my excitement and stonefaced exhaustion.

make a hooray banner yourself to celebrate whatever strikes your fancy -- being a good friend, keeping a plant alive, a good hair day, the sky's the limit!

A WHORANGE MESSAGE

Ego Balloon

oh, hello there!

it's been about 80 years since i last blogged (well, really a month, but it feels like forever!). i have been recuperating from some crazy house installations, and as a result, embraced something called sleep (a very unfamilar phenomenon) and even took a little vacation to maui (more on that later).

hope you don't mind my sporatic blogging. i am trying to get back into my tube top and rollerskates in order to serve up some more WHORANGE to you on a daily basis.

in the meantime, come play with me on instagramtwitter and pinterest. i promise not to pop your ego -- only stroke it, of course!

xoxo

it is amazing what paper, thread, wood, and a whole lot of patience and creativity can do.

this week , steve and i boogied on down to jacob hashimoto's breathtaking exhibition "gas giant" at the MoCA at the pacific design center. comprised of 30,000+ kite-like, paper sculptures, hashimoto's  installation is so sweeping and magnificent, you may curl up on the floor and cry, kittens.

just warning you.

behold the 50-foot strands of papery, gravity-defying grandeur...
