Almost forgot about posting the documentary for Sharon Needles' This Club is a Haunted House - anyone who went to one of the album release parties in nyc, la, or another city saw this in January or February already, but it was just posted online this past week.  You can catch me in a very brief moment in the first ten seconds of it.  You can also find photos of my look from that day and a short vlog about the first day of filming HERE.

When I'm shopping consignment and thrift I typically go through racks of all sizes, and I'll even look at the shelves of shoes that are not my own size because there is always something hiding or out of place.  Yesterday this pair of Giuseppe Zanotti sandals were like a neon billboard calling my eyes to them on a shelf of size 6/6.5 shoes.  They don't exactly slip on - I'm a size 8, sometimes 7 in American sizing - but these fit like a glove... and no, there are absolutely no toes hanging overboard.

If you're a gay man in nyc you're probably aware in some way of Matthew Camp. He was naked in a bathtub on my desktop background maybe a year or two before I actually found out who he was. Well, recently he started a clothing line.  Naturally this excessively and exquisitely whipstitched leather jacket is my favorite piece.

I only have one question:  is it available in micro twink sizes?  Micro twink, tea cup bottom, pocket gay, nano fag....................

Well, my birthday was the 16th and two days before it I became very ill.  I slept 18-20 hours three days in a row and didn't eat anything for the first two days (I'm a pig so that otherwise never happens) - but by the evening of my birthday I began to feel less shitty and now I'm finally over the worst of it.  Anyway, lately I've been binging on chains.  It started with a box chain link that I made into a necklace, later an industrial strand joined it, and lastly an antiqued copper bracelet and five link necklace.  They're all quite heavy, but I love the simplicity and ease of wearing them.

I finally got my tee from Mainframe today, and the timing was perfect because I had just put some fun nails on (OPI x Nicki Minaj collection Did It On 'Em with swarovski crystals).  It's really cool seeing my print on something I didn't have to slave over on a sewing machine.  The tee is available for purchase at http://mainframe.bigcartel.com/

So F/W 13 wasn't such a hot season for footwear - the standouts that come to mind are Prada and Miu Miu, naturally - but my favorite pair of shoes this season is from Kenzo. These eye motif ankle boots are so killer... perfectly eccentric, but I can also see these blending into my existing wardrobe effortlessly. Nothing like a graphic white shoe to add a jolt of excitement to your style, right? I'm also very much on board with the practicality of a four inch block heel.

Definitely loved the eye motif on the clothing, as well.

"Androgynous Pratt student documents his outfits that run the gamut from everyday college kid to flamboyant club kid. Anyone who throws on a pair of Balenciaga platforms or 9" fetish stilettos to cheer himself up is pretty awesome and entertaining in our opinion!"

TOPSHOP INSIDE-OUT BLOG
"Dressing up is what William loves to do most. This young designer from New York doesn’t dress for fashion but just to have fun and enjoy himself like the big kid that he is. Both adorned as a man and woman, his blog isn’t your common “check-out-my-outfit” type blog. It’s a journey into NYC’s crazy nightlife with party outfits straight from the young creative/transvestite scene. Juggling Timberland homemade platforms, tie-dye t-shirts, camo baggy trousers and an orange furry jacket, his looks are absolutely bonkers-awesom, leaving us wanting more everytime. We strongly recommend that you check out his collection too . Made from Japanese anime babe-printed fabric, it’s pretty darn cool."

LYNN & HORST
"I strongly believe in the comeback of Manga and will further explore its use in contemporary art and fashion. Most probably, 'sexualization' will become a core motif. In the first instance, I'd like to draw your attention to the reanimation of Anime by Dripping Lazers."
