Some pictures I took of Laurel on disposable cameras. They remind me of summer and the beach and getting a suntan and diet coke all the time. Curing hangovers with VHS marathons. Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp in the early 90s. Thrifting at Mags. Basically everything good and magical about California.

YAY another Friday another photog! Ren’s photos capture rare moments of uncommon beauty and i really like how she incorporates the surreal and eccentric elements. A healthy mix of subversive culture and feminine charm, her photos make me yearn to be a part of it all.
Although unrelated if you like real film photos —-you should visit this new thang NO RETROSPECTIVE !
The Hester Street Fair on Saturday was the perfect way to spend a sunny spring weekend. En route, I came face to face with Chloe Sevigny walking down First Ave. Clearly a divine omen from the gods. We were both wearing 90s floral frocks. The day was magical, and I am dying to return to splurge on some Devotte sandals, which might just be the perfect summer shoe-the intense cobalt need to be in my closet. And by splurge I mean, they’re like 50 bones. Being poor is fun. The bike booth was boner inducing, if you’re into that sort of thing. Too pricey for my liking though, as the same vintage Schwinn I scored for 5 buckeroos at a garage sale in Cali was 200+ at Hester. Where are you, NYC garage sales? My money was best spent on a primo snow cone, Vanilla Pineapple, handcrafted by the chef genius behind the Meatball Shop that all the cool kids can’t stop talking about. His mom was there, she tried to give me a free cone. It was cute.
New new new. I have trouble keeping track of my favorite photographers, fashion and otherwise- so I am going to start posting the works of those I admire – hopefully every Friday-
Starting this week off with Lina Scheynius. Visit her website here.
Danny’s post over here reminded me of how much I love old polaroids-wish I was still in the habit of snapping shots on instant film, but digital is so much cheaper. Still love them for special occasions though. One day I’ll post on my absurd collection of polaroid cameras.
Nostalgic for days of playing hooky in junior high, sleeping in ’til ten and watching I Love Lucy marathons. Picked up some dvds earlier this year and they got me through a couple bitter cold weeks without gas, internet, or heat. I piled on layers of sweaters, cardigans and scarves, and fell asleep to Lucy’s madcap humor.
