Legends of La Cienega | 2014 #LCDQLA

20140511- Opening Gala Therien -372-X3

As you know, I spent last week in LA as an ambassador for Legends of La Cienega. It took me so long to go through all the professional photos (looking for photos of myself of course!) and wrap my head around the whole trip. Usually when I go to industry parties in NYC, I like to bring a wingman. I've learned, over time, that these things can go either way- there is no one you know in real life … [Read more...]

HOLI | COLOR + MOTION.

This weekend I was walking through my neighborhood when I saw tons of people walking about covered in colored powder. I wasn't sure if it was a color run, but it was Holi! The indian festival celebrating spring! WOOHOOO! I have always wanted to see one of those! I followed the crowds with my camera and there was a whole concert and festival happening. It was SO SO SO fun. Like one of the funnest … [Read more...]

This past Christmas and New Years I was with the family in California, and I think I actually said out loud: goal for 2014 is to spend more time in LA. I "secreted" trips to LA.

When blogging first started, none of us were sure how to treat each other. Should we be jealous of other bloggers success? Should we link to each other?

Hope those of you in the hood can make it! Additionally, I've snagged a few extra of the limited edition tote bags I designed for readers who don't live in NYC. I dont want to call it a "giveaway" cause it has no monetary value or anything, but I have 3 bags to give out and a few of you have asked how to get one if you dont live here. Answer: Leave a comment and I'll choose at the end of the … [Read more...]

An Ode to the Beard.

LukeD

You know how hipsters are suddenly dressing like its 1850? As compensation for mason jars and steam punk, the universe has given us the return of beards! Can't even tell you how much I adore a man with a beard. Ridiculously much. No more metrosexual, prettier-than-me men! I LOVE the gritty bearded look and in the past few months, I've told every man I know about this. I made David grow one, and … [Read more...]
