Her real name is Iris. Appearance doesn’t matter, so I’m not gonna describe it. She lives in Brooklyn, working as a witch. Smoke and mirrors, you know fake magic tricks. Safe to say, she made the rent good. 23 years old and a spot in the hood. She had the condo, the view, and the kitchen sink. She had a drug-free body, didn’t even drink. And she had a sister, who wouldn’t stop giving her shit for dropping out of art school to be an artist. She knew better, she did it anyway. Life isn’t fun without mistakes, and that’s safe to say.

So here’s Iris, stealing time from the devil, trying to make life in Brooklyn something special.

Fall’s here, which means layers and collecting as many black pants, tights and leggings as possible. Until this weekend, I forgot black tights were a thing. I’m excited to get back to styling looks for slightly colder temperatures, it’s a good challenge.

I love this pair of black jeans from Hudson’s Fall Women’s 14′ Collection. They’ve got a very Moto feel to them. I’m usually a 23, but I ordered them in a 24 (thinking they might fit snug) but I actually like that they’re a little big bigger. They give my look a more casual/rocker vibe. The wax coated denim is awesome with any moto jacket and it’s inspired me to dress in all black/white/red for fall.

I’m off to the airport to catch a flight back to NYC after a long week in Chicago. Happy Monday babies! I’ve got SOOO many Halloween treats coming to the blog this week.

quelqu’un m’a dit

Time is slipping and I’m filled with it’sĀ memories. I see the new day come at me like rain. It arrives in all it’s natural glory, whether you insist on it or not. Some days, I just don’t think I’m ready. I close my eyes back into the pillow, eyelashes blinking in the small amount of darkness left in the room. I want to stay here all day. Safe in my little world of garments and novels. Salinger and Hemingway will be my guide to life. Why believe there is anything outside of their created worlds?

Some days I forever imagine myself as Franny, Salinger’s slipping dreamer, beaten down by life and tired of everyone trying so hard. For me, it was always all about being a character anyway. I am Brigitte Bardot meets Edie Sedgwick meets Sailor Moon. But perhaps, those are just girls who wanted to be characters too.

Si, Quelqu’un m’a dit?
