BEGUILED

Lately I’ve been wearing lipstick almost every day. It’s become something like mascara so basic but utterly transformative. It’s powers are mighty. It can instantly transform a bland beige look into something a bit more dangerous. Here are a few pictures my friend Matt took awhile back  – me, Jess, Eva, and Jaquana. The  shade I’m wearing above is called Beguiled by Topshop – discovered it in the store and it’s the perfect wine-stained treasure, it would be a bit more lovely if only it were a bit more matte.

Maybe I will start updating more frequently, but I’m so very sick of this design… Will try to vamp it up and make some new magic happen. Already missing Fall and being able to just wear a cardigan like in these photos, it’s already time to dress like a big marshmallow.

CONJURING THE SPIRITS

Halloween haters are a weird breed. Sure, there’s always a hustle for a last minute costume, planning tribulations, where to go,what to do, who to do it with. But take it all away and it’s a moment to play dress up for a day. The weirder, the better. Telling a story, making moves. Abandoning your regular costume for a day.

Carolina’s Margot is one of the best I’ve ever seen. Perfect butterscotch fur coat. She’s lucky to look like Gwynnie. We met Dolores Haze, the object of Humbert Humbert’s undying obsession near the boats in Central Park for a row boating rendez-vous. Could have chopped off the head of the Boat Attendee when he put up the Closed sign before we got a chance.
