my fondness for words and script, expression and fonts, tied to my fondness for the curves of the human form, led me down a path to self expression through some new tattoos.
here are some inspiring photos of beautiful words, expression and placement.

this one for citizens of humanity is just lovely… and I am wishing I were on the road with the sun shining, with my hair falling down my back…pulling off to the side of the road to walk along a wooden fence.
In God We Trust is one of my faves. Their Plaid Romper would be so perfect with red bow knee socks and ankle boots…or rain boots, with the Acne jacket thrown on top – I can’t think of a better outfit to tromp around in the rain. The field bag and Owl Ring would just tie it all together. I love the open back on the jumper – give is that special subtle touch of sexy.
Even tho it’s soon to be freezing here in DC, I just can’t knock my obsession with rompers…it seems like there are tons more options for fall than last spring. Layering techniques shall be perfected.
While the romper and jacket are a little more fantasy, the Knuckle Sammy Owl Ring and the Filson Field Bag could be a reality! I also plan on sporting Lipstick Queen’s Chinatown Glossy Pencil in Genre…a yummy sheer bright orange.
Or the glitter off your Sparkly Smacker.
I’m wondering when and where I’ll try out this sparkly fun seen Backstage at the Danielle Scutt RTW Spring 2010 show. I suppose it’s not conducive to any lip locking…just kiss blowing…and lots of it.
At the very least I it must be worked into my Halloween concept.

Tom Ford is making his directorial debut with ‘A Single Man.’ The highly stylized film (would be blasphemous to call it anything else) garnered rave reviews at the Toronto and Venice film festivals.
Based on the 1947 novel by Christopher Isherwood, the movie is centered around a gay man dealing with the loss of his partner of 16 years.
Description of the novel:
A Single Man is a 1964 novelby Christopher Isherwood.
Set in Southern California during 1962, it depicts one day in the life of George, a middle-aged gay Englishman who works as a college professor in Los Angeles and whose lover, Jim, has recently died. Isherwood dedicated the novel to Gore Vidal.
Edmund White called A Single Man “one of the first and best novels of the modern gay liberation movement.”
The film starts Colin Firth and Julianne Moore. Damn, I can’t wait to see them full on Ford.
A little while ago my friend, the Halfpint Gentleman if you will, asked me to hang out and share my wisdom on being a single gal in the city (speaking just from my own trials)…we also got to chatting about this blog here and my interest in design.
Shameless self promotion. Wallace, aka the Halfpint, runs a pretty top-notch blog. Check me out and check out all his musings on life and enlightenment as an aspiring Gentleman.
I’m crushing majorly on Sarah Sophie and lucky for me she’s been highly visible at NY Fashion Week.
Love her look at the Fenton/Fallon opening party. She oooozes fabulousness.
She also just hosted Rachel Antonoff’s Fall show…perfectly since the theme and inspiration for the collection is tap dancers, ballerinas, screen stars, acrobats and dress up.
To make things even better for the show, artwork and posters were done by Kime Buzzeli.
From Kime’s blog:
The presentation was at the Henry Street Settlement Playhouse. The concept was a dress rehearsal for an imaginary production titled Magic to Do, and she called on some theatrical pals to help bring to life her themes. On hand to model was BFF Alia Shawkat, better known as Maeby from Arrested Development, as well as New York City Ballet dancers.
Rachel herself looking so very cute (her website has a great video intro)
Here’s more random shots of Sarah because I can’t get enough…
The jewelery line designed by Amber Joy and Ebony Fleur is so fantastical and magical…I can’t think of anything better to top off a fall neckline…anything that resembles pink frosting is dandy in my book.
the love duo lists Alice In Wonderland as an inspiration.
Sarah Sophie is just the inspiration I need to get me loving my outfits in all this rain that seems to be sticking around the district.
