there's a new movie coming out, and it's inspired my boy pharel to make some special billionaire boys club gloves for all of the vulcans with chilly hands that will be standing in line on opening night.
live long & prosper.

last saturday night, b, kris and i rolled. it was pretty epic. lots of strikes and draft beer all 'round. although it was unanimously decided that five pin is definitely not as cool as ten pin - we want to get on that big lebowski shit.
because you can't fuck with de jesus.

word is, our lady of rock 'n roll-wear, miss vivienne westwood has chosen notorious canuck pammie andie as the new face of her s/s 09 line!
chyea! viv won't officially confirm this, but will only cryptically intone: 'i can't speak about it yet. but anything i would say would be completely positive'. so yea, there you go.

the second i saw this zone zero article i had to post about it. over the course of the better part of the last century, gentlemen of all ages in the congo have developed a specific, and most definitely dandied, style of dress refered to as 'la sape'; it stands for: la societé des ambianceurs et des personnes elegantes. it refers to someone dressed with elegance - and the subculture has their own slang: 'yambala' means baggy shirt, 'bumbatio' means pants and 'nkaka' means suit.
and this ain't nothing new..
there was a lot of puttering about, here and there. kris baked some delish cookies, while i supervised, taste-tested and generally cheered her on. i met a new friend who invited us over for delicious snacks (see photo - beardsy and me, waiting to get buzzed in). i went bowling with some dear homegirls. and i bought a camera. oh the fun times that are days off.

found this website a few months ago and thought it was pretty neat. but then i probably got distracted by something shiny, because it fell by the wayside until just right now. carlen altman is a nice jewish girl who appreciates faith and fancy.

the other day, yaya sent me a link to the most wonderful site. she is without a doubt my most sustainably-living, socially-conscious and responsible amiga, and for that i thank her. because i am now in the know when it comes to getting kitted in some seriously wearable organic clothes (because let's face it - a lot of them aren't my speed). fabrics used in their fa08 line include: vegetable-tanned leather, organic cashmeres, wool, cotton and velvet. even the recycled cotton pieces look dope.
john patrick organic. check it.

typically i don't get down with beyonce's gear. she's a super babe and all, but overall, her style isn't really my cup of tea.
then, she goes and does something like this: last week, she rocks a full-on robot glove in combo with some crazy ass gareth pugh dress, and blows my mind. totally made me nostalgic for those roboto-golden-leggings that balenciaga dropped for s/s 07, and wishing that i had a disposable income of over 100 k to satisfy that craving.

it's been awhile since i've made an it girl posting, but i thought it was appropriate, seeing as hallowe'en has completely invigorated my love for all things costumed.
this lovely lady is a self-described 'fancy-maker'. how can you go wrong with that?
