mine? my arms. always. — always always. and as i get older they aren’t making it any easier to fit into my favorite ole blazer. so i’ve started using those little 2 pound weights my mother so thoughtfully got me for Christmas one year, and yeah! it’s kinda working!
what is up with the weird flappy arm meets side business? it’s like a little bum (or tiny front bum) that just sits there, one on each side, just flapping about. lame!
so my girlfriend and i were talking and she tells me that her mom uses a ball to work out her pits (and give more lift to her boobs to boot!) and, well, I LOVE MOM TIPS! sooo.. i got a cute little squeeze ball with yin yang on it and i leave it in the living room. Now every time i see it i have to squeeze it for a minute.
she is my favorite. since forever. holy wow yes omg. she is magnificent. she is an icon. i have said forever, that when i grow up i will be her. my latest collection features a “young Iris”. i was just her on Halloween — not because she is scary or that i was being cheeky, but because my wardrobe allowed it quite easily without much planning. juuuust getting dressed in my normal way 😉
she is such an inspiration. i am so happy that she is being celebrated, i feel like it says something really positive about our culture right now that people like Iris, Anna Piaggi, — even Anna Dello Russo who is younger than the other ladies, but still “older” in fashion terms have such a prominent place in the style world. Not only are they older, they all share an incredibly creative and free-spirited approach to fashion.
long live eccentric women! may you bring us all on your colorful journey!

Mara is such an inspiring woman, her designs are youthful and full of joy, but also graceful and elegant — very much like her personality. And even tho the sale was a mad house full of really gorgeous women grabbing clothes and trying on everything under the sun, it was definitely the most polite sample sale in the history of sample sales. Instead of squirreling away clothes that didn’t fit, girls were happily sharing and trading, helping strangers zip up a back, and quick with a complement; traits i can only associate back to the designer, who was there in the grit of it, helping run clothes, showing ladies how pieces work together, and even ringing up sales!
