The Scene

Forever 21 dress

The Accessories
Fashion District necklace
Forever 21 sunglasses
Gucci bag and flats

The Grade


The Commentary
More of the black experiment. Chic but boring, me thinks. That's why added the Gucci touches. Nothing adds Eurotrash flash like interlocking G's ;)

I heart these flats. Comfy and very Jackie O. However, the signature red and green bow makes them a little harder to to pair than you'd think.

Added the necklace to tie the whole thing together. Easy. Done.

The Random Tangent
There's only one thing I love more than Gucci - David Lynch + Gucci. Last year David Lynch directed a commercial for Gucci. And it is my idea of HEAVEN. The retro feel of the fashion and the set, the music, the creepy editing, the languidly awkward models, the descent into madness. All signature Lynch. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

For those of you who don't know, David Lynch is the mad mad mad genius behind cinematic feats like The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart and Mulholland Drive. He also created Twin Peaks. I was addicted to Twin Peaks at the age of 13. No, seriously, A-D-D-I-C-T-E-D.

It was like nothing I'd ever experienced on television. Violent and stylized and just plain BIZARRE. I love things that are non-linear, that don't make sense. Life doesn't make sense so why should we expect art to?

Loved the sweater sets and the donuts and the parade of quirky characters and that amazingly haunting music. Was fascinated by the idea of a small idyllic town with a dark dark underbelly.

The whole story unfolded in a way that made me feel like I was buried deep in someone's unconscious. Like I was watching someone's lucid dream. Ugh I could go on and on...

Now that I think about it David Lynch (with his exquisite pompadour) is a huge influence on my serious writing. His art is all about duality. Light and dark. Evil and good. The battles waged within.

Interesting all the things rattling around in one's head influencing what you wear and how you create and who you believe in, no?

Do you ever listen to indie 103.1? David Lynch does the weather over the phone every morning. It is kitschy hilarity every single day.
