2013 was filled with overwhelming joy and pain in equal parts. I love thinking back on all the beautiful memories, but it’s important for me to set goals again instead of floating around, waiting. So here, a visual dream board of ideas, places, and things for the new year. It feels exciting, like Christmas morning everyday.

There’s a new man in my life, it’s Mr. Johan Lindeberg, and I’m in love. I can’t say enough about BLK DNM: take your American Apparel zipper pants, burn them and start from scratch with the best fabrics, zippers, branding, & fit, then you’ll have these. It’s on ridiculous sale at ssense (there’s a link in the outfit tags), and fits true to size, even though they were strictly an online purchase. We ventured up to my friend’s roof on an overcast day, but the sun broke through just to say goodnight. Joey Crowle was armed with a fleet of cameras, medium format film(!), another film, and a digital beast. I think we got it covered.. Xx.. Crystal

in theory

theyskenstheorydress003I’ve never given up on Theyskens’ Theory resort 2013. A thought so beyond my means it might as well not exist, yet here it is, on my body. Just goes to show, dreams do go on sale, eventually. Bleary, watercolour ocean silk print, elegant v back, in a 90s slip style, this dress knows just what I like.

Take a quick hike in your silk dress along shipwreck beach and you’ll find these beautiful cliffs crusted in salt. Just kidding, silk is more of a night time affair, it’s damaged by sunlight, sweat, and deodorant, don’t try this at home.

MY SON IS ALSO NAMED BORT

While most teens were out developing healthy relationships, I was at home watching the Simpsons. Hoping to myself that one day some brave designer would showcase my obsession on a garish custom knit sweater,¬†and then further hoping that someone in China would knock it off for a fraction of the price. Slightly misshapen face, it’s not quite a Bart, but there are plenty of Borts to go around.
