When I taught high school it was at a ranch.
The boss's wife wore jeans so the rest of us could.
I wear jeans almost every day. Bell-bottoms are my favorite.
They evoke a mood in me, so many loves of mine:
Sprinting through a field at midnight,
morning ping pong and orange juice,
rollerskating with my dogs on the boardwalk...
I think I may have found a new favorite denim source.

I knew I liked Jay-Z


You are the coolest man on Earth, how the f did you get like that?


I'm around great women, starting with my mom. Women keep men cool. The hotter the chick the cooler the guy ... that sounds like a really bad rap line!

I love photo collages
because I love tape.

It all goes back to when I was a little girl. I loved drawing elaborate, decorated floor plans. If only I could get my hands on some of those! I knew exactly how I wanted rooms to look. I arranged and dusted my McDonald's toys weekly. I created an entire barbie village from cardboard boxes, wallpaper scraps, shoe boxes, fabric - garbage essentially. Life was all aesthetics. Some things never change.

The Art of Life

Gorgeous photograph by The Sartorialist

It's a somewhat irrational obsession, mine with surf culture, but as Joseph Campbell says, "The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are."

Sally Singer. She is one of my favorite editors,
one of those innately, insanely cool people.
