Marc jacobs for hillary clinton im with her

Anyone else freaking out about this cray election? When I get panicked over the thought of "He Who Must Not Be Named" running our country, I do what my activist mama taught me and I get to work. Therefore, I'm dedicating this weekend to #GOTV.

As President Obama always says, "Don't boo. VOTE!" The opposition can't hear you boo, but they can hear you vote. In the same spirit, I say, "Don't cry. CALL!" Calling democrats in swing states and encouraging them to vote is not as scary as it sounds. You can do it from the comfort of your sofa or make it a phone banking party with friends! Sign up on www.hillaryclinton.com and see how easy it is to dial-a-Dem!

When calling, voting-themed attire and power pantsuits are optional, but highly encouraged.


David Bowie Paper Dolls Mel Elliot Ziggy Paperboy Aladdin Sane_19

i never played with dolls as a kid. but, times change, darlings. times change.

a few weeks ago, i stumbled across mel elliot's ziggy paperboy wonder book at book soup on sunset blvd. the book contains two david bowie paper dolls and 16 fabulous outfits ranging from freddie burretti's mustard yellow and ice-blue suits to kansai yamamoto's 'wonderland creature' leather leotard and 'tokyo pop' vinyl bodysuit.

my fantasy to be bowie's stylist has finally come true! all i needed was an x-acto knife to cut out the pieces, my bowie playlist, and a whole lotta dreaming.

damn, i miss him.

DIY bunny felt applique costume on sweatshirt

in celebration of my #creepycute21015 halloween adventures with the eerily talented jonathan lo of happy mundane, i'm embracing a 30-minute costume in pastel goth fashion.

behold - frankenbunny!

i admit, i'm queen of the lazy, last minute costume. it usually involves a mask and something vintage from my closet. nothing too advanced, but enough to get me into a costume-required party.

DIY bunny felt applique costume on sweatshirt-04-skull

all that is needed for this quickie frankenbunny costume is the following:

1). pastel sweatshirt. i chose a long one in order to wear alone with tights, but you can chose a shorter one to wear with jeans or a skirt.

2). felt 9" x 12" sheets in pink, black, and white. available at most craft stores.

4). scissors.

5). round head straight pins.

6). pellon fusible web, iron, and damp cloth.

7). frankenbunny template printed onto 8.5" x 11" paper. DOWNLOAD THE PDF TEMPLATE HERE!

DIY bunny skull felt applique costume on sweatshirt

step 1:  iron felt to fusible webbing. this adds weight to the felt makes it easy to iron your bunny directly onto your sweatshirt. see how to use fusible webbing here. it's soooooo easy!

step 2:  after you have fused your felt, pin template to fabric. you may also draw the bunny design directly onto the paper side of the fusible felt and skip this pinning step.

step 3:  cut bunny head shape.

step 4:  iron pink and black felt to fusible webbing. cut bunny eyes, teeth, nose, and ear inserts.

step 5:  place eyes, nose, teeth and ear inserts into white bunny head. iron and fuse them to head. again, consult this tutorial if you've never worked with fusible webbing. 

step 6:  place bunny design on your sweatshirt. pin design to your sweatshirt to determine placement. once you iron the bunny head on, it is FUSED, so do not skip this step! make sure you like the placement. iron frankenbunny onto sweatshirt.

step 7:  optional: for added hold and safe washing, sew fused bunny onto sweatshirt using a small running stitch.

step 8:  that's it! add black and white tights, a black parasol, and a pastel wig. oh, and false eyelashes, of course!

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:


 let's unpack these looks, shall we?

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!

Pink and nude lipsticks lip liners and lipgloss
