every photo i found of me from van der neer’s runway show in july [i’ve had this post pending for awhile]. since their runway time was slashed from 15 minutes to 5(ish), i figured this was the one time i could get away with posting excess pictures of myself on this blog, since i can spin it as showing off their not-seen-long-enough 11th dimension collection.
man, i was looking at my iphoto and realized my july kicked all kinds of ass. since i like this blog better than facebook, i’m going to post all my photos here because that way you can’t tag yourself in them. photos filched from nicholas, devora, father pops, myself (how dare me!), other people probably (definitely).
without further ado, i bring you the fun & full july of yours truly.
here are things i did:
became full-time at work.
got bonus beers at skip’s.
lost at trivia.
bacheloretted it up, limo & champagne style.
went to a thirsty thursday river cats game and ate free food.
found gold sparkly high heels at target for $10 cash money.
finally tried that aioli place i always walk/drive past.
got to work on a photo project/art show with my boyfriend.
closed out the concerts in the park season.
went to an unofficial not-closing party for lucky cafe.
looked like a gangly schoolchild at the california state fair.
started my marathon training (officially).
saw the sunrise.
not pictured, but still awesome: gave a tutorial on snuggie wearing, saw the little mermaid at music circus, had a home-prepared sushi meal with friends, enjoyed a delicious date at Club TB & got to experience the tasty treats they have at ikea..
speaking of modeling, i haven’t been doing much of it lately. keeping busy in other avenues! but i did manage to make it to a rather impromptu photoshoot coordinated by juniper james for an SN&R article about local designers.
it is july. i have done some things. i am thinking about some things.
i have spent time with friends, which makes me giggle.
i have thought about summer and how it’s slipping away fast!
i have thought about google plus and social networking and how it sometimes would be nice not to do any of that anymore.
i have tried really hard not to be stressed about launch but now i am stressing myself out trying not to be stressed. okay, so i will be stressed and now i will wonder: how can i hang art on cinderblock walls without putting holes in the walls? do you know?
i have thought about miranda july and her new film and how i very much want to revisit learning to love you more and how i got the book off my shelf and now it is sitting on my floor but i have yet to open it.
i have played a lot of text twist.
i have wished that my macbook had a delete button like my pc at work, where i can delete forward instead of backward. i have wished that for a long time.
a couple weeks ago i got to collaborate with nicholas wray on some shots for a show at beatnik studios, inspired by the velo and vintage fashion show. the shoot was one of the longest (but fun!) shoots i’ve ever done, and it was worth it as nick got some great shots. he has a round up on his blog (plus one more!)
since i haven’t done a modeling update in a bit, here are snippets from other shoots of late:
5 (3, sir). it was an honor to write about my favorite local fashion designers, van der neer in this month’s featured artist profile on sacramento365. read it! they are so amazing! (and like them on facebook for up-to-date news & sneak previews)
here are some things that have happened: (numbered but not in order)
it’s been a good few weeks, despite the frustrating site-outage!
but, digression (and multiple commas) aside–i will be sneaking into the neo-crocker party this saturday by briefly emerging from my modeling hiatus to pose for van der neer. super-excited because i get to look super swank AND not pay $95 to get in. woo hoo!
while i’m at it, may i also prompt you to attend the poetics of music at sea reception at csus university union gallery tomorrow (thurs) evening–6pm-8pm and free, free, free. not to mention, rad paintings by jeff felker (see below)! and rad girls in attendance (see here)!
