priorities in the park

Arabelle_Park_2

A lazy Sunday in Central Park for me involves podcasts, naps, and extensive life planning (I'm a Capricorn, ok?). Transition weather means wool shorts and oversized blazers.....aka, tomboi looks, my favorite kind.Since I'm a sucker for oversharing I'll clue you in on my Fall/Winter 2k14 plans and give some tips on how to be an overachieve like myself. Hahaha! Let's go. But first: outfit details, because this is supposed to be a personal style blog.

I'm wearing: Tayler's Vintage Blazer, Choies Tshirt, Grey Wool Shorts, Margiela Tabis, Thrifted Backpack. Similar or exact options are listed below.


NOW! TIME TO MOTHER YOU! LET'S GET STARTED.

Most Important Ugly: A Retrospective

In October, it'll be a year since I started on Most Important Ugly with my partner-in-crime Tayler. So much has happened since then, the opening and the exhibition seem so far away now. I'm incredibly grateful to all of the people who ended up going to see the show -- our first ever -- who bought the zine, who shared it with their friends and family, and also the the press who covered it. I just wrapped up the last entry for the Autostraddle series dedicated to MIU, where I detailed the process behind all of the shots we released. I thought it would be useful to have a space to link to all those posts and offer some final details about the products I used.
  1. Most Important Ugly: I Believe Makeup is Magic  (Mars & Melissa)
  2. Most Important Ugly: Becca, Bekah, Angels and Masks 
  3. Most Important Ugly: Brandon, Tyler, and Gendered Makeup
  4. Most Important Ugly: Massiel, Coco, and Meta-Human Experiments 
  5. Most Important Ugly: My Chemical Romance and Other Majestic Monsters
  6. Most Important Ugly: The Final Monsters 
For details about the shoots, I suggest going to those individual posts. For specific product details and why I like them, hop through the read more.

fashion week, collected

Not one to mince words as you well know so I'll keep it short and say this was one of the most uninspiring seasons for NYFW in several years. It ended well though! And I did still have some great times because the people I surround myself with are inspiring. I found ECKHAUS LATTA to be phenomenal -- I stayed for both presentations -- and it was great to see so meet so many wonderful people, both new friends and old (internet) ones. I made the executive decision this season to not bring my camera to shows because I just wanted to concentrate on the clothes for once. And here are the clothes I decided to wear for a few days of shows.
