Gestuz Textured Leather Cut Out Dress, available at ASOS.

This dress has me FLOORED; I love it! That said, oh why oh WHY is the price tag so steep?? The only way I can justify $465.45 is if I wear it daily, go to meetings, throw on some sneakers and run errands in it. This style is a perfect combination of my current obsessions: leather + cutout details. So chic, modern and sexy.


SO… I guess that dress pulled me out of a long hiatus! A short update: I’ve been building my business as an art director/graphic designer, pulling in new clients, juggling deadlines, driving myself nuts. Honestly, I don’t have much of a social life at the moment. But I’m happy to say that I landed a potentially big client this week! Perhaps the dress isn’t so far out of my reach, if I continue to hustle… ;P

Yep, it’s what you think it is. Me posing with Beegi in his costume.


For Halloween, it’s all or nothing for me; I either go crazy with my costume or I don’t dress up at all. I don’t do half-assed. This year, I decided to go as an eccentric, nerdy librarian.

After going to the costume shop and getting annoyed that most of the women’s selections were slutty, I decided to go the unsexy route. Don’t get me wrong… I think sexy is great, but I don’t like retail dictating that I only have these skimpy, cheesy, uninspiring choices.

Anyway, I prefer putting together my own costume over buying something pre-packaged; it’s more fun and creative that way. Sans wig, glasses, bad teeth and garish green eye shadow, this could be an interesting outfit, don’t you think??

A couple of weeks ago, Skunkfunk NYC threw a party for their 2010 fall/winter collection. Now it’s time for the west coast Skunkfunk crew to get down! My friends at Skunkfunk SF and Slayers Club are throwing a bash this Friday, October 22 at Public Works. Fashion showcase, swag bags, a big lineup of DJs, serious beats to dance to; sounds epic! My good friend Howong, a.k.a. Allofitnow!, will be VJing and providing insane visuals, along with other legendary artists. This is the party to go to; don’t miss out if you’re in the Bay area.

Ah San Francisco, I miss you… if I could be there, I’d definitely be hitting this party…

For more details and to RSVP, check out the Skunkfunk San Francisco facebook page.


P.S. Here is a preview photo for an upcoming post where I am wearing Skunkfunk tights. Stay tuned…
