Bad customer service experience — YouKnowIt.com contact lenses

I ordered two pairs of contact lenses from YouKnowIt.com on October 5th for Halloween, and their confirmation email said they would arrive in 10-12 business days. It’s now November 6th and I never received them. I filled out the contact form on the YouKnowIt website back on October 25th and it bounced back two days later as undeliverable. I sent another email on October 31st and never received a reply at all. This is unbelievably…Continue Reading →

Drunken office party selfie last night

I have only the vaguest recollection of taking this picture, but I do remember being happy about my outfit and how well my hair held up despite yesterday being the humid-est, grossest day ever. That’s right, nasty summer humidity doesn’t stop me from wearing a suit and tie. Suit is from H&M last year, shirt is probably Zara, tie is from Daffy’s. The skull ring I grabbed on Amazon a while back on a whim…Continue Reading →

Somehow I let myself get photographed in a t-shirt & with no product in my hair

My photographer friend Kevin O’Mara was staying with me in Brooklyn and we got up early on a Saturday morning and I threw on a t-shirt and didn’t do my hair and we went out for coffee. Somehow he managed to sneak this pic and make me look cool anyway; there was a nice breeze doing nice things with my product-less hair. I usually don’t let myself get seen in public wearing a t-shirt, let…Continue Reading →

The time I was in Time Out New York’s Most Stylish New Yorkers (April 2011)

Hooboy, this is an interesting one; I’m simultaneously very proud and a little bit embarrassed to have been selected one of Time Out New York’s Most Stylish New Yorkers back in 2011. The photoshoot happened some months before the issue came out, and I’d just recently moved to NYC from Paris and was still figuring out shopping/dressing myself here. By the time the magazine hit the stands I didn’t love most of the things I’d…Continue Reading →

What not to wear: swamp edition

Haha, this one is quite a story. November 2008, I was living in France and had plans to visit my homeland of New Jersey, and I’d arranged to finally meet my dear friend Allen Crawford (aka Lord Whimsy) in real life for the very first time. Allen’s idea of a good time: trekking around in the New Jersey Pine Barrens (a huge pine forest full of bogs and swamps) and showing me lots of rare…Continue Reading →

Is three leopard-print ties enough?

(Of course not!) So, I guess I have three leopard-print ties now. The first two I got from JackThreads; a normal yellow/brown one and a black and gray one, and this new one is from H&M. It was on sale for only five bucks! It’s also black and gray. But it’s different from my other black and gray one, damn it! They’re both necessary. Jacket is from Daffy’s, shirt is H&M, and sunglasses are Armani…Continue Reading →
