Teenage Wasteland. There are somethings you either have or you don't. Originality is one of them.. It can't be bought or copyed. It is better to fail in originality then succeed in imitation. That is one of the truest statement's I have heard all week.
Last night was the LACMA event Burlesque to Couture. Dita Von Teese hosted it and did a interview onstage followed by a performance. The documentry they showed was based on the book "Pretty Things" the history of burlesque in the 1950's and how it turned in to couture today. The whole night was so inspiring. The cocktail hour was ruby red drinks and mini meals in martini glass's. I wore my Japanses dress with smoking sunglass's. I figured it was appropriate. I have never been too into the burlesque scene..but seeing how many huge designers it influenced today was mind blowing.
After the event I made home made margarita pizza that was so yummy. We stoped by Jumbo's Clown room which if you don't know is a type of strip club... the girls don't get nude. There is a vending machine next to the stage.. need I say more? Somewhere around 3am we ended up at Swinger's eating vegan natcho's and Vegi chili cheese fries. It was a girls night out.
I started collecting old 1960's and 1970's photos to cover a wall in my house. You can find the best ones at vintage stores for less then 1$! Tomorrow I am filming with a puppet. The first of many puppet series.. who need humans when you can have a puppet? Im doing a Three outfit shoot with Steve Prue my favorite New York City photographer in Santa Monica after.. Cotton Candy hair??
I just finished constructing an entire dress out of Christmas balls and now im drinking tea while working on sme new designs. There is an orange cat sleeping in my pink leopard bag. I have come to the conclusion candels are best invention ever. Me and Ali are making home made candels and soap for out holiday gift's.
