I GET FREAKY FREAKY LATINO CARRIE BRADSHAW SEX AND THE CITY.


Picture number one is one of those pictures I stare at when I need to go to that safe happy place in my mind. Just that artificially created space where everyone can see you but can't reach you.

Picture number two is just me IN A HOOD MOOD actin dangerous.

Last summer I did a post with that exact same title summing-up all my hood fantasies and rap wet dreams.

Last night I listened to the hour-long recorded interview/ DJ hang out Wavy Spice did with Lily Mercer while in London a couple of weeks ago at Rinse.fm. Her build up was perf and every time a song dropped I just went like YASSSS and twerked a little on my chair.

So put all that Grimes, Crystal Castles, The knife or whatever artsy electro shit you might be on at the moment and I hope you can twerk on your chair a little too as much as I did.

PEACE *makes hood hand signs that don't mean nothin*

I LOVE YOU AND I NEED YOU.


Just how I looked today. And probably how I'll look for the rest of the week. Just one of those outfits that makes it all right.

Today I learnt you should not only tell people you love them, you should also remind them you need them.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A SHOE MAKES.




I just got home from Rotterdam where I scored these BALLY vintage booties (pic #1)  a couple of hours ago!!!!!
I'M SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy since they resemble a lot them 70's men high heel boots (pic #2) I wore till they fell apart last year. So not happening again. A good shoe don't come around that often....unless you got money to blow obvi.

When I walk they sound expensive and heavy. I'm only not sure about the golden buckle though; Izzy told me I should not remove it but paint it matte black which really doesn't sound like a bad idea at all!

Sorry for the angry face but this pose was difficult lololol

ps. HOW relevant is this video right now! cute but over all COOL people; having fun, being lovely, drunk and beautiful. My bf said it felt like our generation's Studio 54 to him! I kind of agree tbh.

OH BROTHER, SHE'S LIKE 5 BLOODY MARY'S ONE AFTER ANOTHER.



I NEEDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

I usually don't like "must have" posts but these babies would be so effin fly on me. I'm not playing, these glasses were made for me.

Ann Sofie Back (QUEEN) collabs with swedish label Hyde's Spectacles for the perfect evolution of the cat eye: the bug eye, which still reads quite leopard print-ish and tortoise and then my dear we're just talking about me.

At the same time I dream of posessing things I don't need, I also dream of yet another queen to come back on the scene and tell all these bitches to sit the fuck down for a while. The OG, Queen B, Black Widow, The mother of female rap...the one who carried them all for 9 entire months. ONE AT THE TIME.

IN THE LAND OF GODS AND MONSTERS.



If we were to rationalise this whole situation we could say this is about a poor animal which landed on the wrong spot downtown and is now trapped with no water around to be able to take off and fly away.

BUT if we were to romanticise it, this could also be the perfect stage for Lana del Rey video or the metaphore for a movie's main character in which she simply sees nowhere to go anymore and has nightmares of being this swan trapped in her own life; stuck with a bunch fat and ugly cops and a guy dressed in orange who picks up trash for a living and actually couldn't care less about her beautiful existence.

As I'm dealing with a lot of ideal ways of thinking and romanticising life on my thesis, I couldn't help but STOP and freeze my fingers to death by making pictures of this situation last thursday, which I seemed to be the only one to consider as magical.

On friday, during my drawing lessons the swan was unconsciously still stuck in my head and it just revealed itself like any other drawing I'm proud of has done in the past.

ps. some of you have asked me recently where do I spot all the good music.... and well it comes from everywhere really. Sometimes I shazam things at stores, events, parties....sometimes my friends post amazing ones on facebook too, sometimes people I follow on twitter do the same....sometimes I end up on great blogs by accident which serve good links too...The secret is: if you like it, write it down! either on your phone or on that little notebook you always keep in your bag. Cause we always think "I'll remember it when I get home" and no you won't.

DO IT OURSELVES.


Here something I've been dying to tell you all about!!!!!!!!!!

As exciting things most def not only happen offline, my friends Izzy, Andrew and I have teamed up on a DIY collective which I promise will heat things up for good on the boy blogosphere.

None of us is any longer on their own while creating those statement wardrobe or accesory pieces. And YOU shouldn't be either! it doesn't matter how big of a blogger you might be, online presence is all that matters! all you need to do is @ us on twitter or instagram with a picture of a DIY you made and just drop a couple of lines on why you'd like to join the gang!

DO IT OURSELVES: The Holy Teeth Project

1. Contestants may apply by tweeting and/or Instagramming to all three of us (@thedandyproject, @HOLY_SPICE, @pullteeth) a link to or a picture of a DIY project that best describes their style and skills AND one reason why they should be part of this collaboration. All contestants must have an existing blog online. Submission period is January 16th-29th, 2013.
2. The three judges deliberate and decide which blogger(s) get to be part of the collaboration, and who they DIY for/who DIY’s their piece.
3. Each winning contestant shall create a DIY men’s fashion item according to the brief, and ship it to the blogger he is assigned to.
4. Each winning contestant will receive a DIY men’s fashion item from a blogger assigned to him, and shall photograph himself in an outfit post featuring the DIY piece he received. Dialogue and collaboration between creator and recipient is highly encouraged!
5. When all the pieces have been created and photographed, the three judges will set a time when all posts will be synchronized to go live. Each winning contestant’s post must feature: (1) the DIY process of the item he created (2) a photograph of the item styled on the blogger who received the item he created (3) a graphic featuring all DIYed outfits of all bloggers involved (4) links to all blogs involved.
6. This is a non-compensated, not-for-profit project. Creative collaboration is encouraged, and the discovery and support of new talent is the goal.

DECONSTRUCTED.



This week is apparently the first week of the year where while at school, we all went like: WHAT THE EF ARE WE DOING??!

2013 is already here, and we're half way january. The thought of having a full 10 outfit collection ready for the last weeks of may has finally and officially set in our minds causing both stress and lots of excitement.

So this doesn't mean I'll be completely absent but now you know my hours are counted!

Here bellow my new audio (and video if I get the chance to watch it) obsessionnnnnn, featuring the always sparkly Wavy Spice and respective bad bitch club! LOVE when the boys kick in through the window and girls show them how to get down a la neon.

A SMART GIRL KNOWS WHEN TO ACT STUPID.


the world through my eyes through my phone.

HANDY VISUALS.



Hands I recently met and liked.

I love these little things people do.

WHAT DID I DO? TO MAKE YOU SO CRUEL?



MY FAVORITE PICTURES FROM WHOLE 2012!!!

I took all of them with my phone and kept them for a special NYE post I wanted to make but I was of course way too busy binging cocktails before 12 somewhere I don't even remember.

So that didn't happen but here they finally are.

I watched Lena Dunham's "Tiny Furniture" the other night and I was disappointed tbh. I mean it was entertaining and of course I cracked when she outbursts to her mother and sister at the front door in a perfectly ill-looking jacket, of course I did...but I feel like the ending was quite a cute cliff hanger very a la GIRLS, but just not touching enough for a movie format.

ON THE OTHER HANDDDDDDDD who am I to criticise when I find myself obsessing to get back home every night to watch The Real Housewives of Miami?!

And is Naomi Campbell really coming up with a model-scouting TV reality show?? likeeeeeeee really bitch?! the world is so weird and delish...Tyra better stick to national talkshowin' or come up with a sex tape cause The Face's trailer already looks fancy (it's so unfancy to use the word fancy) and kinda like it's about to whop some serious ANTM butt.

That's all for now on news nobody cares about.

L FILES: Breeze.



My sister drops yet another amazing video montage called Breeze.

This time she documents us walking through the streets of the beautiful and dark Amsterdam, me being my ratchet-self at the spare ribs argentinian restaurant, and her friend Anja and herself on the days previous NYE. Beach, grafitti, forests, cigarettes. DREAMINESS GALORE!

0.41 is THE moment!

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING, BUT I'M PRAYING.


These are the shots I'm competing with on the Canon M BARRAS YOURSELF contest. There's FIVE!!!!! Canon EOS cameras on game and this holy stripper stunt better score me one!

HE'S A RIDER I'M A ROLLER.




My accomplice, partner in crime, co-conspirator these days.

He's a rider, I'm a roller
put us together, how you gon stop both of us?

Our friendship feels and sounds like this video.

PERFECTION AND DESTRUCTION ARE BOTH ILLUSIONS.

WILD FOR THE NIGHT FUCK BEING POLITE.





I hope all of you had just as much fun as I did during the holidays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

These last weeks have been blissful together with both family and friends.

Insane times...delicious food, pretty clothes, amazing clubs, loud music, honest friendships, love promises, street drinking, holding hands while dancing, hysterical shouting, falling, getting back up, ecstatic sensations, magic substances......

I've been obsessing with tattoos lately...and there's a couple of ink ideas I can't manage to get out of my head. I hope I have the courage to make them happen on my body soon.

These Rick Owens boots have been hunting me daily in dreams too. This is all I would need at the moment to start 2013 properly. Leather shorts and a stack of XXXL white viscose jersey t-shirts. YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!


And how sick is Asap Rocky's new album??!?!?!?!?1/1?!?1?!?!?!?!?

damn.

DEAR DEARS

THE JOURNEY

HOLY OTHERS
