sequins enforced. marc jacobs' party dress code.

Marc jacobs gloss party rabbit ears

kittens, marc jacob's ny fashion week party invite just arrived and i am RSVPing YES for you and me!

here's the skinny: marc's september soiree is a book launch for gloss: the work of chris von wangenheim. if you are not familiar with mr. wangenheim's photography you gotta check it out! his notorious lens captured the coke and lamé filled '70s better than anybody. his muses were the denizens of studio 54, supermodel gia, and dobermans. He was even the inspiration behind the 1978 film the eyes of laura mars, which is one of the trashiest (i.e. most fabulous) fashion photography/horror flicks ever made. 

now, onto the party!

mr. jacobs' fashionable fete will honor chris von wangenheim with the swankiest, sickest, most sequined, and sans subtle dress code ever! in fact, he is so passionate about the party attire, he even specified it with all caps in his invite.

the instructions read:

STRICT DRESS TO KILL CODE WILL BE ENFORCED: FUR COATS OVER LINGERE, LIP GLOSS, JERRY HALL SIDE-SWEPT HAIR, SEQUINS, GOLD LAME TURBANS, PATTI HEARST SYMBIONESE LIBERATION ARMY GEAR, ROGUE, ROLLERINA CHIC, SHEER HAREM PANTS, MINI SKIRTS AND MUSCULAR LEGS, PLATINUM RECORDS AS HEAD GEAR, SEQUINS, GRACE JONES BUTCH REALNESS, GLOSS-Y SKIN, BLEACHED EYEBROWS, SLITS, RIDING IN ON A WHITE HORSE, SEQUINS, SKY HIGH STILETTOS, MIRRORED AVIATORS, METAL MESH, COWL NECKLINE HALTERS, OR EYES OF LAURA MARS CHIC.

PINK LIPS A GO GO

Vintage lipstick assembly line

kittens, i have tried every single pinky, nudey, rosey lipstick on this unicorn planet. from sticks to stains to sheers, i am always on the search for the perfect pinky shade that will take me from palisades client meetings to downtown go-go dancing.

after years of tint testing, i've composed my top ten lippy picks below. these go-to gals can be worn solo or layered in any combo. they all work well together much unlike our congress.

do you have any favorite pinky neutrals? let me know and i'll give 'em a spin!

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!
