titus andronicus

i was pretty stoked when i heard that amy klein, guitarist and violinist for titus andronicus, bought our "wild at heart" tank from emerging thoughts at the pitchfork music festival a few weeks ago in chicago. unfortunately i was stuck here in new york, so i was especially happy to see this video.

new summer styles

i know we went a little nuts with the "violent, sensual, sensitive girl" tank, but i just couldn't stop myself. we've actually had these pieces for awhile now, it just took forever to schedule a photoshoot. i hope all of this hot weather still has everyone thinking of summer.

Watching: Little Darlings

The ultimate summer camp movie... for girls. It's simple really- two 15 year old girls from opposite sides of the tracks come together at summer camp and end up competing to see who can lose their virginity first. It's between rich girl, "Ferris Whitney" (Tatum O'Neal) and streetwise, "Angel Bright" (Kristy McNichol).
Ferris- the romantic rich girl. Love her perfect "rich girl" clothes and her side swept hair.
"Cinder" - the mean girl and instigator of the bet . She's always perfectly made up with purple eyeshadow, red lipstick and high heels.
The girls spying on the boys across the lake- skinny-dipping. Of course there would be a boys camp across the lake. It wouldn't be a proper summer camp otherwise.
Matt Dillon as "Randy"- so young, so cute.
I want this "Camp Tomahawk" shirt.
Notice Cynthia Nixon (aka, Miranda Hobbes of Sex & the City) to the left. She plays a little flower child named "Sunshine." Personally, I just love the hairstyle on Cinder...  how do you even do that?
I think Matt Dillon might be prettier than Kristy McNichol. He has the best hair.

Now I wonder what I missed out on by not going to summer camp...
