Yo-landi Vi$$er of Die Antwoord does whatever the fuck she wants.

Steve (a.k.a. Beegi) and I went to Governor’s Island this past weekend to catch the HARD NYC music festival. M.I.A. was headlining, but truth be told, I was underwhelmed by her set. All the fancy visuals in her show didn’t mask the fact that she just didn’t bring the energy LIVE.

On the other hand, some of the other performances blew my mind. shonshon8’s faves of the evening: Rye Rye, Sleigh Bells and Die Antwoord, who I’ve raved about in another post. Energy + attitude + great tunes = epic performance!

Rye Rye… love the hair and outfit!Sleigh Bells.

Guess who??

I don’t want to spoil it by posting all the photos here. To see more, our photo essay’s featured on the New York Press website.

Fun day, even the part when we were coming back to Manhattan on a ferry and it started pouring rain, with lightning angrily flashing across the sky. Everyone on the top half of the ferry was soaking wet, screaming and giggling. It didn’t matter, it was 95 degrees anyway and we just saw a bunch of bands. Love crazy summer moments…

I get bored VERY EASILY; I tend to try out lots of different hairstyles. But ever since I had my stylist Corvette at Graceland chop off my medium-length hair last year, I’ve been obsessed with short hair. In fact, my hairstyles keep getting shorter and shorter. It feels…liberating…modern…dramatic…tougher….demands a certain confidence…I love it! It feels very ME right now. I keep wondering if I should grow it out, but then I get annoyed by the nasty, humid New York summer and off it goes. Once the weather gets cooler, I might change my mind, but in the meantime, I’m addicted to short hair…

I’m an advocate of going dramatic with your hairdo. It’s another way to convey your personal style. So lop it off, dye it, make it asymmetrical. After all, it’s only hair and it’ll grow back. Have fun!

P.S. these photos are outtakes from an upcoming post (coming VERY soon)… I like the washed-out quality of these images; really brings out the texture of the hair….

I’m a sucker for typography, so naturally, I was drawn to the luscious, red Lolita typeface on this t-shirt. Not to mention,
Vladimir Nabakov’s Lolita is certainly a controversial, titillating read. If you’re a fan of the classics or have nostalgia for
vintage book cover art, Out of Print clothing has a line of tees that feature iconic, out-of-print book covers. If that isn’t
already cool in my book, Out of Print is working to spread reading to other parts of the world that don’t have
access to books. For each t-shirt purchased, one book is donated to a community in need through their partners,
Books for Africa
. Look stylish and make a difference! Here I am rocking my Lolita summer look…

A portion of the photos were shot at Mike and Amanda‘s apartment, where they have a mischievous beagle named Honey.
Miss Honey is an absolute diva and wanted to be part of everything, including the photo shoot. So when we toyed with a
lollipop as a prop, she jumped up and licked it too! The lollipop concept didn’t make the cut, but this photo is pretty damn cute.

Thanks to Mike and Amanda for a fun afternoon of showing us around your hood!
