video killed the radio star

something you may or may not know about me: i took on the role as music supervisor for many of the fashion videos that stylecaster + last pictures have done. here are two of my favorites:

the most recent is for the brand coach, with the song "bad blood" by bear hands. (if the video doesn't work, click > HERE. <)



and here is a video done in the fall, in partnership with shopbop. the song is "switched on" by islands. (if the video doesn't work, click > HERE <)



(i used to be obsessed with the unicorns, so i have a soft spot for islands singer nick diamonds)

view the rest of the videos here.

"My advice went the way of a clog- an ugly wooden shoe that tried to make a statement & then disappeared" - Blair Waldorf


smashboxstudios.com

After the September hoedown at Chanel, it was decreed by King Karl that CLOGS would be the new "it" shoe for Spring. His inspiration?

Moi.



Me, age 4, in a pair of wooden clogs my dad brought back from Amsterdam.

Anywho- it would be narcissistic and weird for me to wear a trend that I started back in '91, so I won't be rocking clogs* this season. Just in case you wondered.

*Miu Miu is calling these little bad boys clogs, but I don't agree.

I call them groovy shoes. My favorite french friend Leandra says I love groovy shoes. And I do. I really do. I can't help it... k bye.

frankie says relax

i'm getting into meditation, and i think it's nice to start and end the day with a positive mantra.

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage. - Anais Nin
