our friend ames dips in and out around town. snip snapping this and that but you wouldn't know because he's stealthy, ninja-style.

sword and fern




i guess 2010 is going to be about haute girls who make jewelry, clothing and music. apparently we are running this town and a town near you? last night rafael and i dj'd at holocene for a special, couples valentine's show. we met these nice girls who also played and who happen to own the shop sword and fern down the street from us. i like our generation. something about running things together and connecting with community..this is our life, our city, our planet..we gotta make it what we want it to be ya know? synchronize our watches, get in the ship and set the compass to where we want to go. y'all i'm getting up and about to preach the sermon of love and togetherness. fuck it, why not? amen.

red hot hearts all around

mom and me

the serena williams at nite dress

guys, we did it! our first rad summer dress has been made and delivered! it's called the 'Serena Williams At Nite' dress. inspired by the great tennis player, we wanted to see what she looked like behind a thin vail of lace. there's a limited edition of 20 in the diamond lace and also a rose lace. it's stretchy and cozy for layering or not (spelled haute') i will take more pics later so u can see the delicious muscle tee back. there are some in the store but we are also taking orders for all black or red trim too. love you xoxoox

Sakiyo Tobita & The Medium Necks











sunday is my favorite day of the week because it's for chilling out, listening to records, cooking, perusing magazines, the interweb and gobbling up gifts from afar. today is especially lovely because not only is it valentine's birthday(we'll be eating the most delicious vegan cake ala ruth in a few hours) but my package from afar was from one of my most special friends sakiyo tobita! she is one of the raddest girls in tokyo..not only does she make beautiful clothing and music under the moniker 'the medium necks' she also is a singer in a band called 'Helll' with our old friend jeff fuccillo(of Irving Klaw Trio fame) i really relate to her because she is one of us. she makes music, art, clothing, food and so on and so on.. i will be putting out a couple of her dresses and tops, flame necklaces and 'chiisai san' (little bears) tomorrow at the store so get ready to get super cute!
