These are four of the five shirts that will be available at Rescue on Tuesday. Still working on the fifth.

I made a page for the shredded shirts I will be selling at Rescue. I am also offering custom shredding, if anyone is interested. Check the page for more info.

Daryl K shirt, Zara pants, H&M shoes.

So excited that the weather finally warrants the wearing of these pants that I got months ago when I visited my mom in Florida. Zara was having some insane sale and these cost me something ridiculous like $7. I guess an outfit like this is sort of my version of a sweatsuit, something super easy and comfortable to throw on and sit around in all day. I don’t really believe in actually dressing down, at least not for myself, so I no longer own anything that’s too casual and I almost always wear heels. A lot of people think that this takes more effort on my part, but in truth it is easier and more comfortable for me to look a way which I think of as more refined.

Pieces from Cara’s senior collection.

One of my best friends in the entire world ever is this crazy b right here. She recently graduated from FIT with a degree in Accessories Design and throughout her time there she created many covetable shoes and bags that hopefully she will let me post pictures of in the future. These two pieces are from her senior collection and they are both amazing in person. The bag is ruffled white leather with white shoulder pad pieces attached to a white bag that is covered in mesh, full of white feathers and has white fringe dangling off the bottom. The shoes are amazing — so Nicholas Kirkwood-esque, but without being derivative at all. Her design ideas are completely out there, but totally in line with modern avant-garde trends. I don’t think it will be too long before she is scooped up by some important label and bloggers everywhere are posting about how desperately they wish they could acquire her shoes . . . hopefully my bff status will get me a free pair or two . . .

Blue silk tie-dye dress by Adam.

Cara convinced me to buy this dress at Buffalo Exchange a few weeks ago. I was desperate for something to wear that night so I caved, but then I decided it was far too fancy (and with my leather jacket looked decidedly too rockabilly for my tastes). Luckily, today is an insanely nice day and after work I’m having dinner with my parents — who I haven’t seen in months — so somewhat fancy attire (sans leather jacket) is called for.

Blacklist ‘Midnight of the Century’ out now on Wierd Records.

Even though I was just in New York, I couldn’t resist planning another trip down for the Blacklist record release party. When I finally got bold enough to introduce myself to Pieter and I told him that I didn’t always come to Wierd because it was hard to drag my friends out all the time, he took it upon himself to introduce me to everyone there so that I would always know someone even if I came alone. Four of the people he introduced me to were Glenn, Josh, Ryan and James aka Blacklist. Since then, they’ve been working on their debut record, Midnight of the Century. It was finally released yesterday and tonight is the party for it. The entire record will be played between 10:30 and 11:30 while there is an open vodka and rum bar and after, a free champagne toast. I think everyone in the extended Wierd family is unbelievably excited for this, so I just couldn’t miss it! To make it all even better, there is an article in today’s Village Voice about Blacklist, Pieter and Wierd — check it out here. And come to the party if you’re in NYC!

Listen to some of the new songs on MySpace.

Buy the new album in digital format.

Buy the cd from Wierd Records.

Johnny experimenting with a new style.

This shirt will be for sale at Rescue in a few weeks, once I have a couple more ready. It’s my favorite one so far, but it doesn’t fit me right so I’m unable to keep it — I hope to make myself a striped one before the summer is over though and thanks to Outsapop for the idea . . .

Accidental goth strikes again!

I hadn’t dyed my hair in months . . . months and months. I was thinking about letting my natural color growing out, seeing how it would look for the first time in over a decade. But I started to feel really washed out (my natural color is a medium-lightish brown) so I decided to go back to dark brown in an attempt to give my face a little definition. Well, of course, it ended up black by accident. I’m sure it will fade a little bit as I wash the rest out, but really, even when I’m not trying, this is just how I end up — looking more and more like Lydia Lunch or a less intense Elvira every day. Anyway, I’m wearing a Thakoon for Target tank top and Ralph Lauren blazer. I wasn’t really in the mood to wake up, let alone put effort into my outfit today.

Cult of Youth – “Train To Kill” live at Wierd – Video by Jane Elizabeth of Tesco USA.

Here’s a treat for all the non-NYC-dwelling Cult of Youth fans that read this blog. No matter how much you like the recorded songs, seeing them live — with two drummers and Sean freaking out and screaming — is really quite a treat. When Sean played his first show at Wierd (solo), I was so bummed he didn’t play this song, but he explained it was because he couldn’t figure out a way to make it sound cool without drums. Luckily he met Glenn that night and soon got a live band together (currently with the addition of Micki on keyboards/bass and Matt also on drums) and believe me, the song definitely sounds cool now . . .
