Today I was tired, hungry, not feeling at all like a lady boss, but I wore my favorite dress from LA so that was nice.
"Happiness, not in another place but in this place… not for another hour, but this hour" - Walt Whitman
Sleeveless to stay cool, slip ons to stay comfortable, foxes to have fun and be me.
It’s always exciting to take a moment and think about where I found the pieces that make my outfit. They remind me of where I’ve been in the past and the places that make me who I am in the present. The top is from a visit to Korea where I’d learned about my mother’s depression, pants from Germany where I’d experience art and love in unfathomable ways, and shoes from Jersey during the summer when I’d work with one of my dream teams, at J.Crew, which happens to be right now. Fashion shows me that the past is found all over in the present.
This Monday’s batch of selfies at J.Crew HQ
"Don’t make stuff because you want to make money — it will never make you enough money. And don’t make stuff because you want to get famous — because you will never feel famous enough. Make gifts for people — and work hard on making those gifts in the hope that those people will notice and like the gifts."
tears, where do you come from? i’d really like to ask you to stop appearing right before i’m about to fall asleep. it’s really annoying.
tears, i hear you. you’re funny because, whenever my mom calls my name from the living room, i don’t hear her—i act like i have no idea she’s calling me. but when you, tears, show up in her eyes, i hear her, somehow, like a dog hears his owner’s call from anywhere, everywhere, right here.
