'....You can reach me by sailboat
Climb a tree and swing rope to rope
Take a sled and slide down slope
Into these arms of mine
You can jump on a speedcote
Cross the border in a blaze of hope
I don`t care how you get here
Just get here if you can'

Most of all I pray you be infused with life and with hope. That you allow the universe to nourish you with all it's power and grab your course. I pray you can be okay with loving and without expecting receipt, that your  beautiful strangers can become acquaintances, that you will fuse with floating hearts, and unearth joy/love/God. I'm not afraid anymore. Here is to a new attempt- at living, at being happy, at being innovative, at believing you too are wonderful. That you can accept it and realize it / That you can accept you and realize you. You are such an amazing creature. Feast on life. Lust after life. Keep eating! Keep eating! Let me pour you more tea.

I had it all wrong. So now that I am back on the earth, hopefully this time for real - away from all the kdrama, and fantasy and silly desires. What am I really going to do... How am I going to make this work..

Bonnie Young

My darling Tu Le, starts work today at an amazing Children's wear company called Bonnie Young in NY. It caters to both boys and girls in a terrifically, adult/glamorous style, and looking closer I am unbelievably amazed. They could very easily be "grown-up wear". And I suppose children's wear is taking a higher spot light now more than ever with companies like Lavin, Marc Jacobs, and DvF launching their own respective children wear collections. Bonnie Young is the former creative Director for Donna Karen. Have a blast Leah! It looks like you're in for one. The photos in the furnished room are photographed by Luca Babini:

Nobody wants to be alone.
The heart beats happy when it has a place.
And if it doesn't have a home
It can come into my space.

So you can be the one I love.
I can be the one you long for.
You can be the one I want... want.
And you can be the one I love.
This could be our world wide open.
You can be the one I want... want.

De Colores

De colores
De colores se visten los campos en la primavera
De colores
De colores son los pajarillos que vienen de afuera
De colores
De colores es el arco iris que vemos lucir

Y por eso los grandes amores
De muchos colores me gustan a mi
Y por eso los grandes amores
De muchos colores me gustan a mi

Canta el gallo
Canta el gallo con el quiri quiri quiri quiri quiri
La gallina
La gallina con el cara cara cara cara cara
Los polluelos
Los polluelos con el pio pio pio pio pi

Y por eso los grandes amores
De muchos colores me gustan a mi
Y por eso los grandes amores
De muchos colores me gustan a mi

The wonderful Derek Lam, still has 3 beautiful dresses left for you to grab through the Derek Lam + Ebay collaboration.  And my favorite little denim one is still avail!

..Then again it's hard to pick a favorite. This Spring, Derek Lam, Jan Schlottman (Derek Lam CEO), and Andrea Linett (eBay) visited Sav for SCAD Style.

And they shared with us their initiative and answered questions and were so amazing the entire time.
Considering eBay is my favorite store almost ever, I am thrilled to see such a neato idea. A fusion of fashion and the bargain class. #brilliant. So from this what can we observe? If you are going to buy designer, it might as well be a long dress? Which makes a lot of sense to me for these reasons: the customer can wear this dress out to an event, she got it on ebay, and it's a designer outfit. Super romantic. It can be worn, and talked about because you are wearing a long dress to a place where people are, and eat hors d'Ĺ“uvre and adore dresses. Especially, if you normally shop on eBay. I feel like I mostly search for "investments". Pinking shears, cameras, cosas como that. Things that I might use again and feel happy when using again. Kind of like that opening-a-Tiffany-box feeling that goes with the brand. I don't know if I am making much sense.. but I love all of them very much. Also very clever to have these dresses be voted on, and then able to be purchased. A new democracy. Also economic.
An all around collaboration-

Ebay fashion is slicker and cuter than ever before and looks like a true "fashion website".  Since you aren't actually touching an examining the product, the side bar includes information about notions, details, and fiber. Also, you can view the product move on the girl in the center with recorded motions. Kind of like on the Saks site. I am so happy for them. Ebay you've put on a brand new dress... *tear.

I really like Derek and Jan. I'll admit I didn't know very much about them before they came. But honestly, I feel we share a similar approach to fashion. And a lot of what he said, I feel like I really did believe. Weird hmm. It's good to see people who have made it, considering we'd all like to reach a similar place. Thank you for so much for coming, I wish I could say thank you in a better way.. If you're interested in reading a little more about Derek Lam's visit to SCAD definitely view Heather Stowell's blog spot post, La Mode Est La Vie. She's a good reporter ;)

Take a look at these amazing images by Japanese photographer, Taisuke Koyama! Ah! so cool!

Showing you just these alone obviously doesn't do him much justice. I think if anything he definitely puts aside all doubts if photography should be considered an art. Also, definitely very "weird" that such images exist somewhere in life. As though there is so much more to see and I'm walking around with my eyes closed. Very beautiful Mr. Koyama! Sorry I'm not too much of a professional critic.

Check out this and other projects of his like Starry and Entropix at his website :)
btdubs all of these images totally belong to him

"A city and human body, organisms and inorganic materials, consciousness and unconsciousness, the self and the other; in this environment which is constantly changing with the transition of seasons, those elements are reacting each other closely and constituting this ever-changing world which keeps metabolizing like an organism."

Dear Andrea,

It's finished, sophomore year is over. The flood has subsided and the dove has returned with the branch etcetera, etcetera, and so forth. It was one of, no- the most difficult time of my life I have yet to experience. And that's why I wasn't too happy when it was over, because none of it is really finished yet, harder parts are just right around the corner. But I'm not looking at this pessimistically. It's so exciting and terrifying, and thrilling and simultaneously the thing to make you want to kill yourself. I'm sorry Andrea. I won't pretend I'm not disappointed in myself. I'm so sorry. When I think about the fact I am still in Savannah, I tear a little. Thank you for giving me seeds to plant, and teaching me how to give them earth. For giving me courage during every encounter and helping me know I have value. I've planted a lot of seeds. But I not entirely sure there are going to be any flowers this summer. I hope we see them bloom together soon. Thank you all you angels that have flown my way. I know it sounds entirely silly. But I can't describe a set of people who have been so, so, so good to me any other way when I have done absolutely nothing do deserve this. I've learned a lot this quarter and like I tweeted before, I've also lost a lot of weight. But what I've learned is entirely astonishing to me. The cycles of fashion, how to follow up after an interview, how to drape a collar. I've learned just how terribly envious I can get, naive I can be, and that sometimes I should be proud of myself. I can't even contain all I've learned. It's almost as if I was so empty last year. And in a way, I kind of hope I look back at now this way. I hope I continue to grow, and maybe one day I'll see flowers.  I really want to give up so badly Andrea. I feel like I'm never getting through. I'm working I promise. Working and viewing all of the sunrises. I hope you're okay as well. You've been such a gift to me. It's been one year. I don't think I'm coming back this summer, if only but a while, fingers crossed. I should stay here, and keep working. And then I can genuinely smile, no strings attached. In the mean time, I'm sure I will meet more angels, as will you. Let's keep planting. I still have some seeds in mind to pick up at Fedex. Thanks again, Michael.

By the way Ricky, I'm sorry I won't be bringing any one home again. I've thought a lot about it and have decided to become a priest, or a monk, I just love orange. Omgosh...hopefully this doesn't strike me the wrong way!! ..Jesus take the wheel. I hope to see you again! And Andrea, I'm glad I'll be staying at SCAD.
