I've always said it isn't who you love, it's how you love. Genitalia is just simply god's way of accessorizing. - Debbie, QAF

I've been watching Queer as Folk online for the last few weeks. I can go through about ten episodes [okay twenty] in one day and lose myself completely. Other than the occasional sour grape, it is one of the most amazing shows I have ever seen. And it's really interesting to watch the way they address homosexuality in America and how much has changed [and how little at the same time] in the last decade. I remember thinking at the time how progressive we all were as a society as the LGBT community stood up and made themselves known [which I'm sure people will agree was happening long before the year 2000] and how hard they had to work to become more accepted and understood. Obviously there is still a long long long ways to go, but if Louis Marinelli,  the guy who arranged the Protect Marriage Tour for the National Organization for Marriage can realize he was being a total jackass, then there is hope left in the world.

Anyway, just like people should be free to love who they want, they should also be free to dress how they want. Each unique expression of self is what makes this world beautiful. So I want to pretend I live eternally in the Summer of Love? High waisted jeans look good on me and there's nothing sweeter than some soft flowing cotton covered in beads.
We have to stop seeing things in black and white all the time and that is, I’m afraid, what NOM does in terms of marriage. The world isn’t black and white, it’s yellow, it’s green, it’s purple, it’s red, orange, it’s blue. It is, in fact, all of the colors of the rainbow and that’s what makes up our world and that’s why the rainbow flag represents not only the gay rights movement but the diversity the gay community brings to this world. - Louis Marinelli
I have spent the last three days in Durham at Full Frame Festival, a documentary festival. My eyes are red from watching all sort of movies. I just finished talking to New York Times reporter Brian Stelter who appears in Andrew Rossi' s documentary One Page. The film revolves around the life of three journalists working for the famous newspaper. Brian was hired for his Twitter mania so I had to talk to him
since I am myself a Twitter fanatic. beside his fast pace way of speaking I was pleased to finally talk to a smart and eloquent person. I forgot how influential and stimulating talking to smart and open minded people are. I suggest everyone to follow him on Twitter.
I am wearing some crazy stuff today. a leather jacket, UO jeans, ballet shoes, top by Hilary's swap.

"Our battered suitcases were were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life."

- Jack Kerouac

I've had a tremendously hard time pulling together an outfit post lately. Blame my scattered mind, or from another perspective, my extremely focused mind that has left little room for anything else. Between the novel, which is halfway through it's "editing", a magical journey I must say, that has taken me places in my mind that are in some ways much more real than anything real I have ever known, my day job as a Publicist for the stars [pshh], and my sometimes scarce, sometimes plentiful attempts to have a "life", I haven't had much room for... thought.

I've thrown on whatever my hand gravitated towards most quickly in the rushed five minutes I allow myself to get dressed, which usually ends up as some kind of boheme inspired mash of clothings, although nothing too much to blog home about. Nothing no one has seen before.

Wearing gray Gap slacks, white button down blouse from lulus, vintage baubles, suitcase, scarf, sigg water bottle.

I've also been a travelling fool, from Athens to Destin to Tampa [today] to the FL Keys [in a few weeks] all in one months time. My life has been one big mental and physical dash. As I was throwing things into my suitcase I thought it made perfect sense to document this oft occurring occasion.
"We were all delighted, we all realized we were leaving confusion and nonsense behind and performing our one noble function of the time, move."

- Jack Kerouac, On the Road

I defended my prelims. Yes! I am so happy. For the occasion I took 3 days or 4 days off, catching up with friends and socializing. I went to see the Mickee faust show, attended a documentary about Martin L. Anderson and went to a BBQ.

For the BBQ and documentary screening I wore a French Connection's dress I got out of the swap with Hilary. It's very short, but very cute. Perfect for the steamy hot weather.

For the show I wore Fiorucci Jeans (about to die), a top my mom owned and bought in Jordan, and a small blue purse by Forever 21. I hate clowns, but Frank was just too nice to avoid taking a picture with.
Urban Outfitters is having a renewal contest called This into that Contest, encouraging people to post a picture of a dress or piece of furniture made with an old vintage item. I decided to participate, even though I am sure they are more talented people out there. here one of the picture. I also have posted more pictures on my other blog: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gincoolette/5593078825/

Hilary and I have been neglecting the blog in any possible ways. I had a friend inquiring about the blog, which prompted me to decide what to do with it. We are offering a special Spring/Summer edition with weekly entries. The topic will still revolve around fashion, more specifically on Summer clothes, since the weather is now steamy and hot. I will also traveling a lot, which should be interesting for my fashion style or lack of. So I will report from different cities and countries. Stay tune.

Here a peak to what expect in the next months.

Here a concert of band of Horses I went to see last night. It was great. I saw them years ago in Chicago, but last night they were amazing. I had a decent spot too;) Taylor, the guitarist is coming out with a new solo album and it is just magic, very nostalgic.
