things i am obsessed with: a mix of things

I'm not really paying attention to personal style blogs or runway right now, just art and music and things in between. This is what I've been listening to lately. 

A mix I made, a mix I love. 

My favorite Thought Catalog article right now: Screw New York. If you live and/or work and play in the city, you'll probably get this. At present I'm so over New York. This always happens in the summer though. It becomes a hive of tourists who ask you where Times Square is when they are AT TIMES SQUARE, and the ever present reek of garbage wafting through your hair and baking into your pores while you walk -- or swim -- through the humidity and try not to melt on the 90+ degree pavement. 

Junya Watanabe Comme Des Garcons Spring 1998, Balenciaga Spring 1999.

Two collections I'm really relating to right now. It's still not quite where I want to be style wise, but it's as close as I've seen so far. The search continues as always.

That's exactly how I've been lately. I'm more interested in the entire spectrum right now than just clothes or just music.

Oh man, I don't even live in New York but damn, it is disgusting in summer. I was there last year in summer and late autumn and I have to say it was sooo much nicer when the weather was cold. Haha what the hell, how do people not know when they're in times square? that place is so freaking famous.

I'm really loving those songs. The second one is especially haunting.

i've tried looking through the archives at style.com for older stuff from my favorite designers, but it only goes back to year 2000. where did you find archives of the old comme de garcons stuff?
