Special thanks to Alicia Keys who sent me these sick kicks. I love how she took the classic Freestyle shoe and made it new with an inner wedge! Love it just as much as I’m loving her new look! Buy yours now at Reebok.Com
There was much more to photograph, but I’m cringing at the idea that I’m becoming “that girl…” so I didn’t shoot it all. Ugh. It’s like, what do you do?Â ReadersÂ ask to see pictures, especially product? It makes your skin crawl to do it, but it’s also not that bad and you should do since you blog…but before you know it, you’re “that girl…”. Yuck.
Hahaha. I amuse myself.
Nothing is better than getting goodies and during NYFW I was blessed to get some fun things! Check out the pieces that I got from SURFACE TO AIR, thanks to Valentina! I cannot wait to wear everything! Blog posts coming soon.
Vladimir The Fraidy Cat approves of the new threads!
Cannot wait to wear these bad boys!
Check SURFACETOAIR.COM for more!
Oh yes!!! My boo thang from Opening Ceremony, Jacky, set me up with some sick Forfex Boots and a DKNY tee. I picked up a couple extra pieces (*staring at my nails).
Having a cat means you can’t have anything nice. Hence the Supreme towel all scratched up…tisk tisk.
And you know this…Jacky!
Peep OPENING CEREMONY.US for information on my goodies!
Special thanks to Brian Wood for my B.Wood Valentine!

SPECIAL DELIVERY: Gypsy Sport, Boy London x BB, Opening Ceremony & Becomb Infinity Time Piece by Levi Maestro
I’ve received such amazing goodies from my friends. First up is my DRAGONFLY CAP from GYPSY SPORT! They are a new brand to satisfy all your masculine, high fashion, street styled accessories! Originally designed for Men, this line is easily workable for the ladies!
This one came over the Summer, but got misplaced during a move. I was especially stoked to find that my friends over at BREAD & BUTTER did a collection with BOY LONDON and they sent me a couple of goodies! Not only that, MAYRA from BB sent a sweet note with a Press Pass as a welcome to attend the major trades how. I need to go!
Thanks so much Mayra!
Opening Ceremony was kind enough not only to gift me with a purple sweater and a limited edition t-shirt from their 10 Year Anniversary Party that Oscar and I was apart of – but, they also presented me with a VIP card for all my future purchases! I am a lucky gal!
Looks like Vladimir liked it too…
Friend and filmmaker, LEVI MAESTRO, launched his brand BECOMB. Check out his first piece, the INFINITY TIME PIECE with a gold face and sting ray band. I love the packaging and the concept.
Yeah, I think Vladimir liked this one also…

Finding the right stationary and notepads is extremely important to me. I think it should always represent your taste and with so many run of the mill stationary companies, it’s hard to find something simple and creative. Cue CANVAS SOCIETY and their signature sun-faded, sustainable products and prepared to be wooed.
I got one that was personalized! Thanks Noah!
Thanks for the pen also, Vladdy likes it.
Since the holidays are coming up, why not treat yourself to some classy stationary – OR get it for someone you care about. Check out their, soon to be released,Â JACK SPADE collaboration.
Canvas Society for Jack Spade Holiday 2012
Few tools remain as pure and essential as the pad and the pen. Paper and ink. They have combined to create master pieces; as classic in their partnership as in their desire to create. With that in mind, Canvas Society has partnered with Jack Spade to release 2 exclusive hemp paper notebooks that continue the bond, between paper and ink. These fine notebooks have been produced completely in New York City from sustainable materials. Simple in their design and use. And ready to capture your thoughts, ideas, and doodles. Canvas Society for Jack Spade available in all Jack Spade Stores and on JackSpade.com for Holiday 2012.

Canvas Society Sun-Faded Standard notebook, has a perfect bound finish and has a split spread inside of microdot lines and dot graph.

Let the paper be your canvas.
I am very fortunate to have wonderful people sending me awesome thangs.
I was especially stoked to get a package from STRAY RATS (who my friends JOSH MADDEN and EIKNARF frequently tell me about)! This independent brand is the brainchild ofÂ JULIAN CONSUEGRA’S.
Not only does this brand have a skate/hardcore/punk aesthetic which is classic and extremely nostalgic for me, there is also an added “personal touch” with every package! For every order placed and eventually shipped, JULIAN gives the customer a one of a kind drawing on the back of the package!!! My brain just exploded. I love that. I miss the old days of mixtapes and snail mail, where someone could really touch you through a drawing or simply by the stroke of their own handwriting (good or bad).
JULIAN!!! You rule!!! I love love love this!!!
The next couple of pieces come from my darling friends overseas, B-SIDE BY WALE! Â They just opened a shop in LONDON and if you’re in the area, check them out and give them a hug for me!
Watch a video from their store opening here:
My friends HERON JOHNSON and VIRGIL ABLOH have banded together to make the collective known as BEEN TRILL and Â just like MasterCard – they are everywhere you want to be! They happen to be some of the most fun-loving folks who know how to have a sick time! I’m stoked I finally got some tees.
Check out the latest editions of FRANK 151. Our friend 13TH WITNESS got a chance to takeover an issue and asked his friends to contribute photography…and I was one of them. I submitted some select and dear Polaroids that I took over the years. Pick it up if you can!
Portrait of me taken by 13TH WITNESS himself! How fitting!
White Supreme Denim Jacket with Leopard Lining,
Vintage High Waisted Guess Shorts &
Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony Mary Ellen Shoes
Special thanks to the family ANGELO & JAMES JEBBIA for always hooking up their sister! I got these pieces ahead of the game, which always calls for a mini shoot.
SUPREME has not only created the template for other brands, but it has also set the tone for how a brand should do proper collaborations. The proof is in their latest Levi’s Collaboration, which is a perfect blend of classic workwear pieces mixed with funky details. If the white denim jacket and leopard pile lining is too much, they have simpler pieces in the form of raw denim and polka-dot snap Western shirts.
Peep the details!
Vladimir Â approves of it! That’s all that matters…
