Best Foot Forward

I'm in the market for a new pair of take-you-anywhere, classic, black pumps.
Christian Louboutin Pigalle 120 patent leather pumps,
$595 at
net-a-porter. Low-cut toe = toe cleavage.

Jimmy Choo Abel pointed patent leather pumps,
$495 at

Not that I really pay attention to such things.

Stella McCartney patent pumps, $675 at Kirna Zabête.

Peace Is On The Rise

I've been so busy I haven't had a chance to work on these for a long time – my Sunday morning ritual of taping various clippings and stuff into black books. Most of these are from last year but you can click here to view all of the pages I've posted in the past, and click the images to enlarge.

Beautiful Decay

Not exactly in compliance with the fresh flowers policy but these not-fresh Iris look so cool I'm having a hard time throwing them out.

Idle Times


Times New Viking "No Time, No Hope" from
Born Again Revisited (2009, Matador). I believe I remember hearing that the entire album was recorded on VHS tape.

Times New Viking plays at the Sunset tonight with Pacific Standard favorite Idle Times and Sister Wife.
