SLUMMIN'





Rodarte t-shirt, Alexander Wang sweatpants, Rick Owens boots, vintage flannel, BOYY Slash bag, DKNY shades.

Junk pile: Gifted sterling unisex eagle and XL skull rings by Alberto Juan, oxidized sterling 2-finger hummingbird skull ring courtesy of Blood Milk, Forever 21 cross ring, Margiela powder-coated brass "diamond" bracelet & ring, gifted 2-finger chain ring w/ crosses by Ferociter, Swiss Army watch, gifted essence of two earring by L.S.D., sterling/onyx rosary thumb ring, gifted sterling falcon skull ring by Blue Bayer, Marc Jacobs necklace w/ Erica Weiner & other custom charms.



These Alex Wang sweatpants have been a lifesaver during pregnancy; I never bothered buying any maternity clothes and just stuck to comfortable basics that I can wear post-pregnancy as well. These and my 3 Topshop maxi skirts have been my alternating bottoms lately. I threw them on yesterday with my Rick Owens fin wedges and my Radarte tee to run some errands.



I just recently discovered that the detachable chain strap on my BOYY bag can be clipped up to be made short. I like it better long, but that's still pretty cool regardless; I think this may be my favorite leather bag. It's smaller than my other bags (which prevents me from hauling around too much useless shit) and ridiculously versatile. This is what my hair looks like when I just wash it, brush it out, and let it air dry. I like it better wavy, but I've been slummin' it a lot recently. Having a ton of long hair in this humid weather is totally not fun, and I always fantasize of chopping it all off into a boy-cut. However, I'd probably just look like a little Dutch boy and would regret it terribly, thus I suffer with all of this hair.

Cutting it short today -- I need to finish up a few DIY projects for the nursery. We've been racing against the clock trying to get everything done before baby decides to arrive ... which hopefully is soon, because I can't carry this big belly around in this heat for much longer! Be well. &hearts

EDITED TO ADD: I am selling these fantastic Proenza Schouler purple satin slingbacks that are BRAND NEW and will come with their original box. I don't like hocking things on here, but I can't deal with eBay's ridiculousness right now. These are gorgeous with sculpted heels and peep-toes with a halter-style buckle on the back straps. It pains me to sell these but they're just a little too small for me (late term pregnancy=swollen feet). Size 38, will fit a 37.5 best. $200. Email halcoholic@gmail.com if interested. Thank you!

FREELAND





Rodarte t-shirt, Topshop maxi skirt, Aldo t-strap wooden platform wedges, obligatory jewelry junkpile (Pamela Love, Marc Jacobs, Tiffany's, various other custom creations), Jil Sander sunglasses, Jas M.B. leather tote.



Nothing special, just a relaxed look from this evening. Bobby and I went to dinner with my mother and her boyfriend at a local joint called La Virtue, where I proceeded to eat myself absolutely sick. I'm still recovering.



I've had these retro-inspired Aldo wedges FOREVER. The sturdy leather ankle straps, rubber traction, and massive platform make for very easy wearing; plus, they were my only sandals that provided sufficient height and detail so as to not be swallowed up by the length of this skirt. It's hit-or-miss, but sometimes you can't beat Aldo for quality designs at really reasonable prices.



The royal blue bottom panel sold me on this skirt. The elastic waistband expands enough so it sits comfortably below my 6 month baby belly, and can be adjusted to lengthen or shorten the hemline. Feet or no feet? I opted for kind-of-feet tonight.



The "Radarte" tee: overdone, overrated, but pretty much essential nonetheless. A nice asset to my cornucopia of drapey poly-cotton blend t-shirts.



I lost my Wayfarers; these Jil Sander shades are satisfactory replacements.





It was so windy tonight, so doing anything with my hair except letting it hang would've been totally pointless.

Have an amazing day &hearts

METALMORPHOSIS



This afternoon, our dear friends Demian Fenton and Don Argott from 914 Pictures filmed some footage of us listening to the baby's heartbeat at the doctor's office. The scene will be added to the "Last Rites: The Fall and Rise of Bobby Liebling" documentary, which is set for an early fall release. You can view the official trailer on their website.



Don's film "The Art of the Steal" can be viewed On Demand through Comcast digital cable right now. It was an official selection at the Toronto International Film Festival. We're very proud of him and everyone else at 914!



DIY denim vest, white men's tee, American Apparel leggings, Givenchy studded flats, Marc Jacobs bag, Chanel sunglasses, Chrome Hearts necklace, the usual cornucopia of sterling silver/white gold rings & bracelets.



I dressed down today because we had a lot of running around to do: doctor's appointments, errands, other unexciting stuff.



This vest is an old favorite that holds a certain sentimentality for me. I have been trying to incorporate my denim and leather vests into my wardrobe more lately. This one turned up in the back of my closet last night. One of my dearest friends is currently painting a backpiece on the black studded vest that I styled on here months ago. I can't wait to see how it turns out.



Chanel aviators from Henri Bendel NYC.



I have been loving these flats. Standout but not too garish, and extremely comfortable. The python print is very complementary to the smooth leather of the toe and the whimsical studwork.



My first post at Max's Kansas City, "Dictators, Dentures, and Punk Rock Dieties," is now up on their blog. Check it out and feel free to leave me some feedback, either over there or on here.

Have a wonderful evening and thank you all so much for your continued support. &hearts

ROCK N ROLL ANIMAL







Obesity & Speed dress, Chrome Hearts tank top & necklace, Tripp NYC striped shorts, Marc Jacobs leather bag, Acne wedges, Pamela Love and other custom sterling silver, Ann-Sofie Back sunglasses



I allow myself two or three coffee treats a week. Dark cherry mocha is very tasty, even though I'm not a huge fan of mocha. Bobby always gets a white chocolate with peppermint.



This little cat is not ours. He's a street cat named Buddy who likes to hang around and get fed. Unfortunately he harasses Peaches and can't come inside the house.



These remain the most difficult shoes to walk in that I own I take that back, my otk Phi boots are just begging for my ankles to be broken. However, I've gotten pretty good at it. Acne makes really beautiful footwear. My pair is in the "gunmetal" color scheme; the Acne website now offers a lighter gray color with different satin on the bottoms, among other fascinating and unique designs from this season. I love how they are subtly sueded and have really thin cord laces.



This nice long scarf was a gift from my little cousins. It is intricately embroidered instead of printed. I think it is from Neiman's.



It was windy outside this afternoon. Luckily I found this leather headband at the bottom of my purse. I forget where it is from; maybe Forever 21?





I'll try to get a better photo of this Chow-Chow next time I see her around. She's so adorable! I love wrinkly dogs.



Bobby hates this dress. He says it looks like I got caught on a barbed wire fence. Regardless, it has become a heavily-rotated basic in my wardrobe, along with my other various Obesity & Speed pieces.



We had glorious weather today in Philly.



I got this Marc Jacobs bag about two years ago and it has held up beautifully. The MBMJ line is hit or miss ... this bag is not only of exquisite quality, but very durable and functional as well. The chunky hardware, thick pebbled leather, roomy front pocket with magnetic closure, and crossbody shoulder strap make it my go-to black bag over most of my others. The cute retro-inspired blue and red lining is an additional plus. I've been using a purple Marc Jacobs billfold lately as well. My husband has the same one in pink (lol). We picked them up in Vegas.



Can someone please help me with the maternity sizing for the jeans on Topshop.com USA? I NEED a pair of cute jeans but I don't understand the sizing at all. The size of my legs/butt hasn't changed, but none of my pants can fit my belly. I don't know if the sizing for those pants with the black belly band is different than the low-rise maternity pants, but that black band is outrageously hideous! Topshop has nice jeans for pregnant ladies that have a low-rise waistline without that ridiculous band, and are nice and fitted in the leg area. That's what I'm talking about!

I watched this movie called Temple Grandin the other night. Claire Danes plays the lead role, which is great because I hadn't seen her in anything since Shopgirl. I highly recommend the film. It is about an autistic woman who became a leading authority on livestock and the efficiency of slaughterhouses. It co-stars David Strathairn, who is an amazing actor, not to mention incredibly hot. I also watched this harrowing film called The Poker House which is directed by Lori Petty and is apparently based on her upbringing. Selma Blair plays one of the lead roles. Both movies can be found On Demand right now if you have Comcast digital cable.

My first blog post at Max's Kansas City will be up in the next few days. Hope you're all relaxing on this Monday evening. xo
