when you talk about love

It's been 4 months and a week since I started working as a stylist and assistant to a costume designer I respect very much.

It's hard to sound sincere when you're in love with something, certain feelings are beyond words or maybe I just haven't found them yet. But to say that I'm happy would probably be an understatement. Every part time job I've ever had has left me feeling weird and a bit cheated. But I've realized that when you work for something you believe in, not much can put you down. Blurred vision, swollen ankles, an empty wallet...all of those feel like part of the picture. They feel alright.

Where I work trends have no meaning and there are no such things as style genres or beauty standards. Of course with every job there are boundaries, but to find freedom within those boundaries is exciting.

I love meeting actors, watching how they move, reading scripts and thinking about all these different lives and how they would show in the way the characters dress.

I love watching my boss work. She has the ability to transform incredible ideas into reality and to be able to watch it happen and even be a part of it is such an experience.

Of the three basic necessities of life, clothing is the only one that applies solely to human beings; when you work with clothing, you deal with the way people live and think. And nothing is more interesting than people!

goodbye tao....come back soon

another thing i'm definitely gonna do this spring is wear tabi socks or tights with sandals

feeling this whole's like the perfect mix of western and japanese, interior and everything

vogue japan

but really i think there is no one better to look to for east-west ideas than the french japanese painter fujita (whose photo i posted once before, i think that photo is still my favorite).

in other news i got a skirt from the infamous junya SS2000 collection.

It's sheer pleated brown polyester,slightly shiny (probably the same material used for that neck ruff up there) and the crazy thing is that it's made up of 20 layers, all pleated... so it's really's romantic and futuristic at the same time

here are some photos of retro suburbia that i got from either corbis or gettyimages, a long time ago. i thought tavi would like these

Finally, I just heard today at school that TAO comme des garcons is closing its line. Tao was my second favorite line in the cdg universe, so i am surprised and sad. Tao had its own world...sort of a hybrid of earthy, punk and lolita style....
i'm really going to miss it,,, there are so many shitty brands in the world and I feel like we keep losing the good ones
