Ladies & Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space

“Only philosophers embark on this perilous expedition to the outermost reaches of language and existence. Some of them fall off, but others cling on desperately and yell at the people nestling deep in the snug softness, stuffing themselves with delicious food and drink. ‘Ladies and Gentlemen,’ they yell, ‘we are floating in space!’ But none of the people down there care.” 

-excerpt from ‘Sophie’s World’ by Jostein Gaarder

It’s a good day to float around in space…wearing the ✨Crystalline Jacket✨ by Brashy Studios, no less – one of my favorite streetwear brands. These pics were all shot in Never Sleep‘s Miami studio, where good tunes and creativity will clearly set you adrift. Scroll on down for more details on this look, or shall I say, float on down, but not before playing this song:

A Nod To Mod

On 1960s Mod…

Short for the word “modernist, “mod” is an umbrella term for a subculture that began in 1960s United Kingdom and spread to other countries through fashion, art, music, and pop culture. The word itself referred to men who listened to modernist jazz, most notably correlating with the beatnik culture of the time. It’s really difficult to define it all in just a few sentences, as the trajectory and evolution of “mod” is pretty far-reaching, but fashion-wise, it was sort of the antithesis to the uber feminine “poodle-skirts” style that preceded it…Cue bold colorways, mini-skirts, and short bob haircuts à la Vidal Sassoon (side note – peep my Instagram for my new ‘do!). I urge you to read up on what the trusty Wikipedia has to say because everything about this period is pretty interesting.

I quite like this unintentionally-mod look I whipped up and how Yesi so artfully captured it around the streets of Downtown Miami. Perhaps I was subconsciously inspired by the book I’m reading, “Grace” (the legendary Grace Coddington’s memoir), which has taken me on the coolest fashion journey stemming back decades. I dig it.

Old Year Things, New Year Thoughts

People have different reasons for hating the past year, ranging from socio-political to pop-cultural. As for me, well, it’s been a mix of high highs and one major low. I should start by recognizing that 2016 was great to me in the travel and work category, and for that I am forever thankful. I also got back into practicing Hot Yoga; made it to Cuba and Hawaii; was cast in a national campaign; went to Gov Ball Music Fest, Halloween Horror Nights and Islands of Adventure (SO MUCH YES); collaborated with people I admire; and fostered new meaningful friendships. On Thanksgiving Eve though, ironically enough, that all faded from view…My world fell apart upon receiving news that I had lost my 16-month-old French Bulldog, Rocky, in a tragic (and totally preventable) accident under a dog-sitter’s supervision. Although I’ve lost extended family members and also family pets (which Mom handled while I was away in college), nothing has hit this close to home. Nothing has ever felt like this. I’ve spent the past four weeks – a time usually marked by holiday joy and inner peace – feeling extreme stress, sadness, and anger. Trying to manage & understand my grief while juggling important birthdays (SO MANY DECEMBER BIRTHDAYS), family time, and work has not been easy. I’ve had to learn that grief comes in waves…The waves may be really tall, and while they won’t ever stop crashing, they will come further apart. 

All that being said, I’ve recently taken up meditation (thank you Headspace app) and am trying to savor every little moment with our other precious Frenchie, Romy, Rocky’s littermate. We got them together, and yes they were inseparable. She is suffering a bit from separation anxiety but at least her depression has somewhat subsided and she’s eating again. We’re thinking about getting her a buddy at some point soon. Also, I am committed to writing & reading more, and vow to leave no book I start unfinished (i’m looking at you, stack-of-books on my night stand). There are a few other things I’ve got engraved in my mind for 2017, but my friends over at Disfunkshion Magazine pretty much sum it all up in this powerful and inspiring piece you should def read. What did you love/hate about 2016? What are you hoping for in the year to come? The first day of the new year is also my first day as a 31-year-old, so I better start it off right, right? See you on the flip side, and don’t be shy, say Hi
