Yes, books and stories are fun, but I do much prefer video games. Of all the franchises, The Legend of Zelda is probably my favorite. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Mario, Pokemon and Final Fantasy, but Zelda takes the cake. Both Link and Zelda have been done here before, but it’s a new season so I can do whatever I want. Here’s Link. In this instance, let’s think of him in The Ocarina of Time frame of mind. Link’s actions are often dictated by his clothes. If he’s wearing the Zora (blue) tunic, he can breathe underwater and can walk on the ocean floor if he’s wearing the iron boots. If he’s wearing his normal Kokiri forest manufactured tunic (green), he can’t do anything special. If he’s wearing the fire tunic (red) he can withstand extreme heat. On a related note, some guy that works at the apple store in SoHo has a triforce tattooed on his hand. At first I thought, “wow you’re an idiot,” but then I realized I was jealous. Respect the power of the triforce.

Pippi Longstocking has a pretty sweet life—super human strength and a house all to herself. She also seemed to have endless adventures, which can’t surprise anybody because she’s a character in a children’s story. I bet she dressed like a crazy person though…which pretty much means she dressed really f’ing awesome.

a lot of people assume i’m the type to enjoy revenge. i’m not gonna comment on that, but i will tell you a love a good tale of revenge, such as the count of monte cristo. the short version is—edmond dantes is betrayed by his best friend count fernand mondego, spends some time in a crap prison, makes some friends, finds some treasure and hatches a revenge scheme to end all revenge schemes. aside from sending edmond to prison, fernand also married his fiance mercedes. mercedes loved edmond and married fernand to protect her unborn child and is swept up in a world of money and status. naturally, part of edmond’s quest is to get back at mercedes for her running off with fernand but he eventually realizes he still loves her yada yada yada. it’s quite the confusing little story, but it’s so damn good. readddd itt.

vampire weekend’s horchata will always remind me of the beach. while i was on vacation i listened to it over and over. i put our vacation video to the tune and now whenever i hear it i go straight back to anguilla. anyway, with a teasing of summer in new york, i couldn’t resist coming up with some looks inspired by the song. not exactly a character post but at least there are some parallels. enjoy.
1: in december drinkin’ horchata: coat by robert geller, sweater by c.p. company, shorts by michael bastian, shoes by c.p. company
2: with lips and teeth to ask how my day went: shirt and bag by bottega veneta, shorts by michael bastian, vintage shoes
3: here comes the feeling you thought you’d forgotten: shirt by michael bastian, pants by missoni, i wear no shoes on the beach.
missoni a/w 10
thoughts: i’ve made no secret about my love for missoni as of late. they kill it every season. that coat in look 2 is gonna give a potential burberry purchase a run for the money despite the massive collar. of course my budget will probably only allow for one of those crazy awesome scarves. other than that, digging the fur use, trademark prints and patterns and of course the patchwork cardigans. need now.
