The preparation for this photo…
In light of the news that my driver’s license would be suspended due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts, I decided to start riding my bike a bit more. I don’t ride with the Xmas gift helmet, my iPod is on way too loud, and I just plain ol’ don’t pay attention. I was almost successfully home, when an unexpected sign post jumped out of the cement, caught me off guard, and a...
If you don’t know LOOKBOOK.NU now you do. Our resident ROXY plays dress up on Lookbook, along with 10 million other stylophiles who can’t resist showing off their goods. Peep streetstyle from all over the world: you don’t need to be a model, have $$$, or even a boyfriend photographer. Some are good, some not so good, but either way, it’s style. Cheers to that. And even...
Q is for Quail
Sometimes I forget to put aside favorite pieces for myself. In particular, I REALLY wanted these overalls from QUAIL. Thin, loose material, elastic ankles, ruffled front. Perfect. I slept on it, and before I knew it they were gone. But resourceful as I am (not really, actually), I called Michelle (Ms Quail herself) to see if she had any left. Not only did I get the very last one, we got to sit...
Amazing what can be seen and done in just one day. Take notes for your next LA excursion. There’s a great new store that just opened in LA, although a bit out of the way, totally worth the journey. If you know Acrimony, you know about out of the way. SARTORIALOFT stocks Odyn Vovk, Number (N)ine, Carpe Diem, Damir Doma, Individual Sentiments and is located in the most obscure downtown...
on wings + horns: →
INQUIRING MINDS sat down with Craig Atkinson and Brian Mendoza of Wings + Horns to discuss the evolution and direction of the brand. The opening portion of this article is a pretty accurate snapshot of clear, precise perspective. We like it. “The old saying goes ‘Dress well and they will notice the man, dress poorly and they notice the suit.’ In the high decisive stakes of...

New York Times
//soon to be my new boots//
In theme with my infatuation for all things Swedish, Carin Wester F/W 09 is releasing what I have dubbed “SOON TO BE MY NEW BOOTS.” I spent 2 hours once, searching the internet for these suckers after seeing them in the lookbook.To no avail. Luckily I have my trusty internet guru, Lulu, who spotted these on the internet somewhere. All faith is not lost. They will be mine.
Since the old blog went away, I’ve been missing some of my favorite posts. So every now and again they will resurge! “Why Hello There Mr Cool” If you’re walking around Hayes Valley and want to pop in to remind us how cool you are on an everyday basis, please feel free. Mr. Cool over here reminds us of the relevance of monochromatic pieces from head to toe, and the idea of...
LA the good life
Did you know that if you if you aren’t a guest at The Peninsula Hotel, you aren’t allowed to lay at their pool? And did you know that if they figure you out, they will fully embarrass you and kick you out? 7 mojitos. Lisa, porcelain skin. Me»>burnt. Today, due to the sunburn, everyone but me was bikini clad. I got to thinking, if only I was wearing more bikini-looking...
what? you're getting what?
A friend of mine is getting married. I said to her, there are a few very good reasons to get married. 1) health insurance 2) some sort of crazy piece of jewelry 3) shopping for a dress that might look like this. She thought I was kidding. What? You don’t want to get married in a big paper skirt? Kostas Murkudis, once assistant to Helmut Lang. Genius.
Stylings. Part 2.
I met another “stylist” the other day. So I said “oh, cool, what have you worked on?” He said, “well, this and that.” I said (to myself) “so you haven’t worked on anything.” He said (to himself) “yep, you got me figured.” You don’t need some massive portfolio to be a stylist. But you can tell. Stylists usually...
kentucky, nice to meet you.
Kentucky, this is Jenny. Jenny, this is Kentucky. It was a pleasure meeting you. After spending a stranded night in Chicago, Louisville miraculously found its way to me. What, you may ask, is in Louisville? Well…Maker’s Mark, for one. Greeted at the airport by this dashing mustachio’d man. We went straight to eating BBQ pork sandwiches, cole slaw and caramel creme pie....
Inside the mind of Rad Hourani →
It’s common for people to dismiss simple tasks by saying “it’s not rocket science.” And this is true, it’s not nearly that serious. But that doesn’t mean things can’t be well thought out and technical. Smart is better, pain staking details make all the difference. If only I could be just a lil’ more nerdy. This week’s nerd encounters: 1) C.P....
behind the counter.
What’s going on back there? Organic soda (blood orange), oversized carabiner for unexpected mountain climbing, cordless phone, internet (trolling for porn), perfect posture, heater to the butt. This is what we do.
Call me Ms. 4Eyes
Not just burnt toast anymore. Burnt eyeballs. The doctor has officially called for these hawk eyes to wear corrective lenses. WHAT? So my glasses wearing friend sent me to Spectacles for Humans. This place is SICK. If it’s cool, it’s here, and no where else. That’s the best part. So, they all look pretty goofy on me. But these were the least expensive ($325) and the most...
Sunday Morning Peruse
I love looking at shoes, men’s shoes in particular. You can cheat on women’s shoes with all the extra embellishments. Men don’t go for that, well not really. This morning I’m into high tops. Skinny boy, urban dude, goth ninja, streetwear nerd, Americana, contemporary, gay boy, not in any given order. I can also think of one cool guy in particular who could rock this entire...
Amnesia/on Valencia, Can’t Feel My Face, tonight!
In A Dark Alley
Some of the best and worst things happen in dark alleys. Obviously, you could get mugged, stabbed, killed in a dark alley. But you could also happen upon 15 Romolo. Killer (literally) drinks and a mean pulled pork slider. WHAT? So to properly enjoy this bar, DON’T do the following afterwards: 2 bottles of bad sake, projectOne where no body showed up, Elbo Room for shots of...
Looking for trade: Crouton owner seeks to trade for day old donut or like pastry...– ACRIMONY$$
I’ve been having dreams about wrapping myself and all my accessories in zippers. Multi colored zippers, invisible zippers, even broken zippers, the only commonality: they’re all RIRI ZIPPERS. Lovely. Then the dream progressed into a dress made completely of zippers, with only one functioning zipper. All the other zippers were faux, and the only way to get out was to find the right...
Girafa Come Back To Me.
These dudes used to be all over my neighborhood, but suddenly disappeared. Are you in JAIL? Have you moved to SAN JOSE? WHERE ARE YOU? I miss you dearly. Ass crack of night, black beanie, backpack, gloves, ipod, balls of steel. I love you.
Wolf shirt attracts women... →
“The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn’t have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn’t settle for the first thing that comes to him.”
Stylings. Part 1.
I hate when people say they want to go to school to be a stylist. You can’t go to school for that. You either got it or you don’t. I work with 2 stylists, 2 stylists that I absolutely love. Lulu has done some great stuff for us. We fight, and fight, and fight. Then kiss and make up after the shot turns out like this: She also takes the photos. Styles, takes the photos, then allows...
I’d rather read a cookbook than hang out with you– Acrimony$$
It's Finally Time
Recent developments include a sore throat, loss of vision, liver damage and partial scoliosis due to all the events over the last year. It’s time to document everything before full-on dementia takes over and I forget all the people, places and events that have brought me here, and you here.
