Big Love for Chloe's Collection

The actress who plays the cold, conniving polygamist wife in Big Love, Chloe Sevigny is demonstrating her love of fashion in her new collection which will debut next month in Opening Ceremony stores. Chloe's idea of making the line unisex-ish is genius...unisex always catches my attention, and the little black jacket (above) certainly snatches it. Come August, I'll be one of the first at Opening Ceremony's steps.

The Sartorialist minute!

OK...yeah! I even confess, I fantasize about getting my 1 minute photo session with Scott Schumann! But I've given up. It takes the perfect combination of being at the right place at the right time, the perfect ensemble, the perfect roll of the pant, or shirt sleeve. The perfect worn or not so worn shoe. The perfect belt or bag, and lastly an effortless stance on the street with the amber glow of the sun catching your profile... and cut! Basically the stars have to be flawlessly aligned for that Sartorialist minute! Well, the step by step guide that Refinery 29 posted will help you get one step closer to that "Here I am Scott, I'm ready for my close up" moment.

This post is dedicated to my friend Fernando!

Andy Andy Andy

Stephen Shore spent his teen years in the mid-sixties hanging out at Andy Warhol’s studio. His touching and beautiful photographs documenting the Factory scene are filled with glamour-pusses like Edie Sedgwick, Nico, and Ingrid Superstar, as well as Andy himself, looking bemusedly at all that goes on around him. In one startling image, Warhol sits with his back to a woman who is pointing a gun at his head. You almost want to yell, “Watch out, Andy!”

Man Bag

During my recent sun worshiping, shell fish fest, cucumber martini sipping, bike riding, and beach travels to Provincetown, MA. ( Sigh, I want to go back!) I couldn't resist stopping off at a little store on the Commercial St. strip called MAP. By far, it's the best store in P-Town. We all know P-Town is for the gays, and the gays love shopping...but this little town is really just known for it's parties, bars, and food. Since I am not much of a party boy (gone are those days) All of you who know me best, know that shopping is always on the top of my list before any drunk fest, especially when it includes the likes of man accessories...BAGS, BAGS, BAGS! Map carries the Japanese, Porter Yoshida bag line. How the Japanese know how to construct a bag!! I've been searching for the perfect back with function, simplicity, style and detail. I love everything about this one, and being the bag whore that I am, I was sold on the addition of the handle straps to be used as a tote! So, even though this one is a back pack and looks "manly", it contains a little sass as well...the perfect man bag.
