suffocate the dictator.

it’s easy to let limitation be the dictator. like the eery sound of a silent room without vents or circulation.¬†hollow yet substantial.

but how beautiful life can be when you simply let yourself ride. when you realize freedom isn’t about the rules made by those around you but about the limitations you put on your own choices.

run up hills, roll down them. let the air around you suffocate the dictator.

New York Fashion Week Day 4

4th day of fashion week was another busy day. To start the day we grabbed a mimosa and watched the Darkoh show, to continue our slight obsession with menswear this season. Then we checked out the Maison Kitsune presentation at the Standard. Maison Kitsune is not my style but I like when looks that aren’t typically what I would go for grab my attention, which this presentation definitely did.

Rachel and I ran into our friend and fellow blogger Eugenie of Feral Creature, and we all headed over to the Nylon party. As expected, Nylon threw an awesome party. We spent the majority of our time sipping on tequila sunrises while sit-dancing (that is, when you’ve been wearing heels for 12 hours a day every day that week and want to dance but can’t quite do it standing up) at our booth next to the DJ. I even got a chance to meet and have a few conversations with the owner of Nylon, which was definitely unexpected but awesome.

It was an insanely fun night filled with tequila and laughing and photo booth sessions, but we definitely paid for it the next day, haha.

New York Fashion Week Day 2

Rachel and I spent most of the day at the Dream Hotel where we sipped on champagne and laid around on pretty couches. We took a few snaps outside of our looks, which is what you see here. And yes, I wore a fur coat in 85 degree weather #nyfwproblems.

candle heart.

i blink vulnerability. it’s what makes me human. and it’s more endearing than you might think. a dash of doubt, a splash of lost, and a tingle in my heart that doesn’t quite know which emotion to gravitate towards.

i wish you would see it- that the runny wax from your candle heart is much prettier liquified. once reached the surface of its cold surrounded walls, the runny wax of your heart hardens. you follow your logic- that no one will break you if they’ve never seen you broken.

but one day you’ll get it- that those who make us vulnerable give us the rare chance of being human. for better or for worse. risking stabilized emotions. letting loose all that makes us vulnerable at a chance of gaining a little thing called being human. and it’s much prettier than you might think.

because this is human stuff, you know, it’s what sets me apart from the cold, consistent ground i’m standing on.

riding on the rhythm


the best things about being alone are

not having to share the leftovers
sleeping on whichever side of the bed i want
riding on the rhythm of my thoughts, untouched

but then i think about you

and how the worst thing about being alone is
that you’re alone, too.
