a while back, i assisted great photographer JAMIL GS and learned so much about art and life. he was a great mentor and i am so honored to have been recently photographed by him…as well as blogged about, by him. check it:
“A NIGHT AT THE OPERA…Featuring Vashtie aka Miss Sweet Peppa.
Vashtie was one of the sweetest and best assistants I ever had, she has since graduated to becoming a successful video director, clothing designer and is now about to become a movie star. I am very proud of this one.
Here she is on the set at a Baptist church in Bed Sty, on the shooting of “A night at the opera” where she is being courted by Actor/Director Nemo Librizzi.”
after a whole day indoors behind a giant computer screen (which is very common for me these days), i ventured out at midnight to visit the homies. OSCAR & RAUL were hosting the party, “NO HABLA INGLES”.
*SHAYNE & RAUL – HOOD BY AIR
*DAHLIA and MOI
*SCOTT said, “bad mon fuh life” while eating this candy.
*RADIO ROSE + SURE SHOT
*OSCAR first saw me and asked, “V, why you so tall?”. he looked down and almost stopped himself because he already knew…”BURBERRY?” to which i responded “PRORSUM boo boo!”. then we chuckled. i love those boots. they’re more comfortable than my self loathing.
*DJ SCHOOLBOY teaching lessons on the decks
last week lovely SAMANTHA from FRUITION, LAS VEGAS paid us a visit…we had brunch at CAFE SELECT!
*her fashion sense is insane! i love it…
*cappucino for me, thank you.
*shopping for my god-daughter!
while on our way to IKEA, ELLE and I were ZIPPING it with a ZIP CAR through the EAST VILLAGE and peeped who else — KID CUDI on location, shooting that new HBO show he’s starring in! we got out for a second to say hello.
*we wish ZIP car offered options like this :/
*BALENCIAGA, VINTAGE RAY-BANS, KID CUDI on the BLACKBERRY CURVE…ready to go.
*RICHARD GOLDBERG, wine consultant.
*one girl, two cups (one for white and the other for red).
*this was an excellent wine…
*i flirted with these boys over here…i even had some perfectly aged truffles.
(i thought it would be “truffles” as i chocolate, but it was more like mold. they put it on bread and added some duck liver and it was actually pretty good).
peep ELLE’s new haircut, she so fancy.
*if a little boy like this said to me – “please don’t close the door to our future” i would seriously consider dating him!
QTIP’s new artists was performing at the brand new 92Y in TRIBECA and we went to check him out. his name is SPREE WILSON and he can play guitar like i can play tetris – which means he’s brilliant.
i have no photos of the artists, because every time i snapped away the image came out horribly due to my location and the lighting.
*me and JACOB PARRIS of VINNIE’S STYLES.
*this takes the chap out of my lips!
*me and QTIP.
friday night, EMMANUELLE called me and ELLE over to the ANGELS & KINGS bar where the homie SCENARIO was directing a video for a track off TRAVIS MCCOYS new mixtape. we had some good times with the crew…
*his doggie STITCHES is so cute. i didn’t want to let him go!
sunday, i met up with my homie LUCIA and FATIMA who was visiting from LONDON. we stopped in to BURBERRY to find these boots i’ve been day dreaming about. i rarely fall in love with a piece, but when i do…i hunt it down and make it mines! that’s right, i said “MINES”!
anyways, they were pricey BUT i got a really good deal and had to take them. (i just won’t eat for two weeks!)
*LUCIA and ME.
*LUCIA and FATIMA…thanks for the hook-up!
*thats like 5-6 inches right thurr!
first of all, i need to say this…MAX is one of the most kind-hearted people i know. seriously…and in his line of work that’s rare! OSCAR was supposed to be my date, but couldn’t make it. i asked ELLE to be my beard(ed lady) for the evening and she agreed!
*we couldn’t resist the backdrop art, so we decided to get a photo as a gift to our homie MAX!
*the wristbands gave us VIP entry into a cozy backroom where champagne was flowing like a recession…
*there was a gorgeous view of TGI FRIDAYS.
*COMMON opened with BILAL on stage, he did a great show.
*a little screen action…
*”PRETTY WINGS” performance. paper feathers fell from the ceiling as ELLE and I floated up out of our seats. it was magical.
*a GOSSIP GIRL sat right in front of us…
go buy the album, if you haven’t already!!!
