I re-watched Factory Girl with Sienna Miller the other day. She does a pretty spot on Edie Sedgwick, and the fashion is of course amazing.
When I saw this dress I needed to screen cap. This is supposed to be early Edie, right after she’s arrived in New York. How the stylist did this was brilliant. It is crocheted high neck dress with bell cap sleeves, and you can see her black tights through it. No bra. Amazing.
It’s burned into my mind!
Today’s #tbt post is from a photo shoot I did three years ago this month with my friend Will Larsen. I’ve posted some of these shots on the blog before, but I thought I’d reblog them so you guys can see what I look like with hair (albeit teased). I love the mood of these photos.
No filter so you can see how gorge this skirt is. It’s Cameo from Nasty Gal, with a Tildon top from Nordstrom, and vintage boots.
Breakfast today with some early Christianity. Love the ‘Very Short Introduction’ series.
You guys I have found some amazing 90s-inspired halters and mini skirts but it’s 30 degrees outside :(((
Why The Republican's Old Divide-and-Conquer Strategy -- Setting Working Class Against the Poor -- Is Backfiring
Republicans told the working class that its hard-earned tax dollars were being siphoned off to pay for “welfare queens” (as Ronald Reagan decorously dubbed a black single woman on welfare) and other nefarious loafers. The poor were “them” — lazy, dependent on government handouts, and overwhelmingly black — in sharp contrast to “us,” who were working ever harder, proudly independent (even sending wives and mothers to work, in order to prop up family incomes dragged down by shrinking male paychecks), and white…
This new face of poverty — a face that’s both poor, near-poor, and precarious working middle, and that’s simultaneously black, Latino, and white — renders the old Republican divide-and-conquer strategy obsolete. Most people are now on the same losing side of the divide. Since the start of the recovery, 95 percent of the economy’s gains have gone to the top 1 percent.

This was a painting I did in high school of Philip Seymour Hoffman as Truman Capote. I came home and painted it right after I saw the movie ‘Capote,’ and it was first time I had really noticed P.S.H. as an actor.
He has been my favorite actor since, and his performance in that movie really flared something up deep inside me. I wholly felt his performance and his immense power, and the world has lost an unparalleled talent.
