PERPETUAL LEISURE from JASON LAST on Vimeo. Can’t wait. Everything looks soft, comfortable, slick simple chic. Sooner or later I need to get my hands on as many Complex Geometries pieces as possible.

over the rhine

As weather gets colder I tend to curl inward and spend most of my time indoors painting or reading. Fall’s been falling pretty gently here in Northern California and when rain comes down, I get pensive and moody and gravitate towards pensive and moody things.

skull & crossbones

Did you know Saturday was National Talk Like a Pirate Day? Well, I certainly did. Celebrated by going to the local Renaissance Festival during their pirate weekend.

memoirs at the end of the world

I’ve fallen for Florida’s luscious little indie pop band The Postmarks. Their newest album, Memoirs at the End of the World, is part Spaghetti Western, part spy intrigue film soundtrack, and all fun. Take a listen for yourself.

jacket | french connection dress | vintage sandals | vintage hair clips | f21 I’ve loved this jacket ever since I slipped it onto my shoulders in the French Connection store at Santa Monica Beach. Sure it’s a bit marching band, a bit Micheal Jackson. But it nips nicely at the waist and echoes faintly […]

stud it up

As an occasional faux rocker wannabe I’m pretty mad for studs. My sister pointed out at some point I could probably just stud things up myself rather than pay a premium for prestudded clothing; I’ve self-studded a couple things already, including a $10 pair of jeans from Taipei, a Blake jacket, and a couple tank […]
