The More Loving One

 The More Loving One

 Looking up at the stars, I know quite well
 That, for all they care, I can go to hell,
 But on earth indifference is the least
 We have to dread from man or beast.

 How should we like it were stars to burn
 With a passion for us we could not return?
 If equal affection cannot be,
 Let the more loving one be me.

 Admirer as I think I am
 Of stars that do not give a damn,
 I cannot, now I see them, say
 I missed one terribly all day.

 Were all stars to disappear or die,
 I should learn to look at an empty sky
 And feel its total dark sublime,
 Though this might take me a little time.

photo of the week

This photo was found on Dave Villar's facebook page. I'm not sure what is going on here, but that is one of the things that I like about it. I believe it was taken at Coachella. I'm going to have to go to that one of these years.

vegan pesto

My husband recently made some delicious vegan pesto. Instead of using cheese he substituted in cannellini beans. He calls it "Pesto Gaucho", and here is his recipe: two handfuls of flowering basil leaves, half a can of drained cannellini beans, three tablespoons of olive oil, two dashes of sea salt, four cloves of coarsely chopped garlic and black pepper to taste. Blend on low power to maintain a thicker texture. He did not use nuts, but suggests an oily nut like cashews or pine nuts if you want to add them in.

Wanted

I am all about this top and more importantly want it. It reminds me of Marc Jacobs' sweaters for his graduation show at Parsons. Unfortunately it's a little pricey for me, and I don't always get what I want. It would be the perfect top for me to wear in the upcoming months ;) Have a nice day!

photo of the week

This is a photo of my best friend Adam. He's the one on the right sitting on the rock. I think my friend Nick took the photo. They all live in LA, and decided to go out to the desert on Halloween with projectors and laptops. I wish I was there.

photo of the week

I found this photo on Kimberly Shin's facebook page. I'm not sure if it is of her or if she took it. Either way, it is a stunning photo. The contrast of colors almost makes it look as if the woman in the photo was inserted in with photoshop.

photo of the week

This is a photo of one of my best friends, Marisa. I'm pretty sure it was taken by my old roommate and buddy, Buddy(aka Erin).

Canadian Tuxedo




I recently found out that wearing denim on denim is what some are calling a Canadian tuxedo. I really like this look when it's done right. My husband looks pretty nice in a Canadian tux, which happens to be his chosen uniform during the colder months. He is the one who let me in on the whole thing. I think my favorite aspects of this look are its effortlessness and seventies vibe. I'm pretty into both of those styles.
