a lengend passes: paul newman.

paul newman was my high school crush. i watched cat on a hot tin roof when i was 14 and quickly fell madly in love with him. he was a wonderful actor, family man, philanthropist and entrepreneur. he was all for 'shameless exploitation in pursuit of the common good'. on friday evening, he died at this longtime home, of complications arising from lung cancer.

he was 83.

i like.

russian nesting dolls, or matryoshka dolls. jasmine had some on the shelf in the living room when we lived together, and i've been looking to replace them ever since she moved out. if anyone has a line on these, let a sister know.

in stero, today.

it's weird. i don't really feel crystal castles for the most part (what with all of the copyright infringement bullshit), but this song is a toe-tapper. and they're canadian, so i guess i'm doing my part for the community, here.

crystal castles - crimewave (sinden remix).

new shoes.

wish i could've put the picture up of the platforms by charles & keith that i am absolutely in love with, but alas, there were none available. these beauts will do for now.

kris got a hot pair of marc jacobs strappy heels yesterday, so now i've got my feelers out for new pair myself.

king douche.

no explanation necessary.

r.i.p. nagi noda.

nagi noda, director. 1973-2008.

lions mane, by nagi noda.

cut copy 'hearts on fire', by nagi noda.

listed: lynn yaeger.

lynn yaeger is a neat lady. she lives in nyc and writes for the style section of the village voice. she is also a regular contributor to the new york times style section.

perhaps she is most identifiable by her signature powdered face, rouge-spotted cheeks and dark, cupid's-bow lipstick, but her tongue-in-cheek writing is nothing to shake a stick at.

oh you pretty things.

autumn has got my feathers ruffled. bought a lovely hairpiece for leah as a going away present. and then just had to get one for myself. sally jane set my heart aflutter.. fall is all dark stockings and rosy cheeks.

holy fuck gets the shit end of the stick.

our friends at gnarcore waxed poetic yesterday evening about stephen harper's right(reich?)-handed axe to arts funding. that's 14.5 million dollars less for the development of creative mind and outlets for their process, across the country. 'promart', the domestic touring subsidization program, as well as 'trade routes', the program that 'helps promote cultural exports abroad', are both getting wasted under this new policy.

the conservative government has chosen to blame it on this band. pitchfork media has written a great article about this bullshit and how holy fuck has been pegged as the scapegoat, basically, because of their name. and these dudes are currently touring with bloc party. nice one, harper, you douche.

check it.

this week's it girl is none other than one of the most adventurous ladies of leisure of all time, amelia earhart.

without a doubt, she popularized and pioneered the equestrian look for north american women in the 1930's, and actually had her own clothing line that was sold at macy's department store.

clean, classic, tailored, and fully functional elegance. this one's for you, yaya.
