PARIS, 1965


Any trend that starts in Paris is bound to be something I dig so when K-Way asked me to take part in their blogger style challenge I was all about it. A lightweight, completely waterproof jacket is much easier to pack for my frequent trips back east then an umbrella. I also dig the preppy, tomboy, form- meets-function vibe of the brand.

BOHEMIAN FLAIR


Out and about in this perfect white dress from LSpace. I felt like a cross between Stevie Nicks and a 1970s California bride. On second thought, maybe those two things aren't that different. Champ and I are headed to Hawaii for our (holy shit I can't believe I'm saying this) 5 year wedding anniversary next month and this dress will definitely be coming with. Yes, I was a child bride.

DEAR NEW YORK,


You will always be the place I met my husband, got my SAG card, went to college, held hands walking over the Brooklyn bridge at night with a guy I liked, bought my first couch, ate my first sushi roll, got my first apartment, stayed up way too late to see the sunrise in Thompkins Square Park, made my best friends, experienced "bottle service" bought my first pair of $200 jeans, got a fake id, saw my first real life honest-to-god celebrity ( Ethan Hawke, who I then met while doing my first off-broadway play.) You will always be the city that changed my life, that lit a fire, that made me hunger for more. You will always be in me because you made me stronger. "If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere" doesn't mean making it huge it just means surviving. If you can do this place, you can do anywhere. You were really hard sometimes, you could be incredibly difficult. Leaving you felt like taking the weights off and running free and I will always love you for that. I didn't leave you because you had beat me, I left because the student had become the teacher and now it was time to shine elsewhere. Sometimes a year passes without seeing you but I never doubt that we will cross paths again. It's always like seeing that old friend, the one who no matter how much time passes, you pick up right where you left off. Because we're that tight New York, you will always be in me.
Love, 
AC

More t-shirts I dig.

SuperSymmetry


My family? We're music people. I've mentioned in a previous article that my mom took me to see Elvis Costello when I was but a babe and my dad took me to see Bob Dylan for my sixteenth birthday and the Rolling Stones just 'cause. My dad also made me travel from London to Liverpool with him to go on the official Beatles "Magical Mystery Tour," which is basically the equivalent of the double decker busses that tourists take around Los Angeles to gawk at celebrities houses. Now I have a legitimate photo of myself in front of Strawberry Fields, so there. I saw the Beastie Boys, The Fugees and Dave Matthews Band when it wasn't embarrassing to say you loved Dave Matthews Band. But on Saturday night Arcade Fire may have treated me to the best performance of my life at The Forum in Inglewood. I think I wore my best concert outfit to date, too.
