YES! THIS! Thank you!!!
Oh shit - my mom always warned me not to do that to my brows too - but to her it was a class thing. She was norcal chicana and (as I understand it) her mom’s generation worked in canneries and the chemicals they constantly worked with caused hair loss, so...
Ugh - I need ALL these sept issues! 2! one to cut up all the looks I need for my mirror and a copy to hug!
She’s helping homeless folk in silicon valley. She and her sisters are saints!
Every paragraph of this story is making me gasp audibly, but the instagram DM from Naomi Campbell - I don’t even know what I’d call the noise I made.
GASP! That is TWEED?! I mean I knew Chanel can make tweed look like cake, but that looks like glass, milk & silk.
You’re not kidding with the “OG caucasians”. I’m half persian and I say ‘persian’ because ‘iran’ is persian for ‘aryan’.
Karl Lagerfeld scares me.

I think you are my favorite fashion curator right now.
what you wrote about nostalgia v history - I need more of that.
I love you, but I’m not going to listen to that. No way.

Ugh, I try to avoid these articles, so I don’t go seeking whats next and blowing money on shoes that inevitablly end up in a dogs’ mouth or being worn during a traumatic experience like being attacked by a wasp’s nest & jumping in a pool to escape.
Now I want to see the movie “The Unbearable Whiteness of 80's Nostalgia”
They built a whole foods blocks away from my grandma’s barrio in redwood city, ca. I figure if the adult bookshop & tattoo parlor my mom grew up behind is still there (and my grandma’s house) it’s alright.
floods with high heel platforms!!!.... oh my god! I never thought this would be so delicious!
this is on youtube? I’ve been watching (and loving) you on my laptop this whole time. Time for binging it on my appletv.
I feel guilty loving these personal pieces you write. They’re so intimate & scary honest, but I value them lots. Thank you, sir.
