first edition

–... and besides, there are no men without tragedies, there is only what you believe. Everything is costume. Everything seems the way you see it on the street, unconcerned, ambling along the pedestrian crossing of appearance. Everything smells of rules, and keeps its secret. (Henri Matisse)

With Chanel it is like a groundhog Christmas, maybe because of all the pearls, I really can't say, but in my head it is always snowing in the chanelland. The book was a gift I hunted down on eBay after seeing the crazy prices they were asking for it at Netaporter. I love it that it was a Christmas gift to someone's mama in 1975.

Šele dobro sem oslinila prste pa že vidim, da Karl in Gabrielle še naprej na debelo lažeta o svojem poreklu, torej je to très Chanel, vsaj toliko kot vražja tvidasta jakna ali preštepana usnjača.

definitely maybe

by fixinchevys for DCMU
Next time I threaten my hair with cutting it, I just have to take a look at this photo. This was definitely a good hair day, probably one of the best since turning orange. Maybe I will buy my hair a christmas gift, a fancy brush.

Nekoč sem že napisala, da nekaj na laseh moške spravlja v blaženo stanje. Zibajoči konjski rep je zanje kot par najstniških prsi, ki skačejo pod majico. Ko lase spustimo iz gumice in se nam razlijejo po ramenih, pa kot da bi si odpele modrček. Čista predigra. Dolgi lasje so zame po drugi strani čiste počitnice od same sebe, od kratkolaske, od temnolaske, od brivske mašince. Kljub temu jim grozim, da si bom poleti omislila tisti paž nerodne dolžine, ki obvisi tam nekje pri ključnici in ga čez dober teden nemogočega krotenja skrajšaš do brade.

the office

scanned by DCMU
A few madmen-esque photos from an old Stol Kamnik catalogue, a company specialised in chairs and the art of sitting long hours. Why did offices look so good back in the days and so plastic today? Probably because of all the wood and leather. It makes me wanna put on my kitten heels and start typing away. 

Tako bi lahko bil videti tudi retro Net-a-Porter pred, hm, internetom. Verjetno bi naročale po telefonu, še bolje, telegramu, iz debelih glossy katalogov (podobnih tistim, ki jih Net-a-Porter pošilja pressu na začetku sezone). Fikus v kotu, zvok drsečih koleščkov in četa oblek za hrbtom.
