Buon Compleanno, Sophia

Today is Sophia Loren's 80th Birthday. You may know her as an accomplished actress and Italy's treasure. She is not just an eyeliner tutorial on YouTube. Although, a staggering amount those videos exist.

Sophia is publishing her memoirs in December. She will tell the world all about her impoverished upbringing in Naples, her rise to stardom, and her family. Sophia sees the book as, unpublished memories, curious anecdotes, tiny secrets told, all of which spring from a box found by chance, a precious treasure trove filled with emotions, experiences, adventures.” 
Sophia Loren is the epitome of vitality, femininity, and class. They don't teach that on tutorials.

My View of NYFW In No Particular Order

This how Fashion Week looks on a Droid Ultra. Venexiana had great clothes and music by the way. Kati Stern is a genius. Ben Brunnemer needs to DJ every moment of my life.

Write This Down

Happy Friday!

I can't wait for Fall. It is not for the obvious reasons (pumpkins and Frye boots). My excitement is due to Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning. It is the Metropolitan Museum of Art's first Fall exhibition in seven years.

The evolution of Victorian and Edwardian  mourning attire is the focal point of this exhibition. Judging from these photos, it is evident that bereaved women wanted to look fashionable. The exhibition will be chronologically on display: 1815-1915. Queen Victoria's mourning gown will attract the masses.

Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire can be seen at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Anna Wintour Costume Center from October 21st, 2014 through February 1st, 2015.

Cymbals Eat Guitars-August 19th-Apple Store-Soho

I walked into the Apple Store with my Motorola Droid Ultra and this is what I saw: Cymbals Eat Guitars. As you can see by the pics, that bitch would not zoom for shit. Enough about my phone's horrendous camera.

They were grand. I've seen them a few times already. New albums=new energy. 

Cymbals Eat Guitars has a new album coming out in Europe on 8/25 and here in the US on 8/26. It is called LOSE. 

Do you know how fashion and beauty publications tell you what to do? "700 $700 SHOES FOR FALL" "DON'T GET A FULL BRAZILIAN ANYMORE! BATHING SUIT BEARDS ARE BACK". Well, I am telling you to pre-order LOSE. Then you can listen to Joseph D'Agostino (guitar+vocals), Matt Whipple (bass+vocals), Brian Hamilton(keyboards+vocals), and Matthew Miller(drums) ALL THE TIME!!!!!

This is their 3RD studio album. They will be on tour in a bit for a bit. If you go, wear Tina Belcher rabbit ears. I'll explain later.

Don't listen to those faceless publications, listen to me. Don't piss away your wages on expensive shoes, don't grow a beard in your bathing suit, and go pre-order LOSE.
