ladies and gentlemen: Lykke Li

Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson March 18, 1986), better known by her stage name, is a Swedish indie singer.

Li was born in Ystad, Skåne, in Sweden, in 1986 and was raised by artistic parents; her mother was a photographer, her father is a musician. The family moved to Stockholm when Li was a toddler and later moved to Portugal when Li was six, where they lived for five years; the family also spent time in Lisbon and Morocco and spent winters in Nepal and India. She moved to New York for three months when she was 19, where she recorded her album, before returning to Sweden. At one point, she worked as a dancer on Swedish TV shows.

Cria Cuervos

Carlos Saura's exquisite Cría cuervos… heralded a turning point in Spain: shot while General Franco was on his deathbed, the film melds the personal and the political in a portrait of the legacy of fascism and its effects on a middle-class family (the title derives from the Spanish proverb: "Raise ravens and they’ll peck out your eyes"). Ana Torrent (the dark-eyed beauty from The Spirit of the Beehive) portrays the disturbed eight-year-old Ana, living in Madrid with her two sisters and mourning the death of her mother, whom she conjures as a ghost (an ethereal Geraldine Chaplin). Seamlessly shifting between fantasy and reality, the film subtly evokes both the complex feelings of childhood and the struggles of a nation emerging from the shadows. " Source

"You might want to excuse me for not reading it as a childhood drama or the political allegory it is often described to be. I did not connect with those allusions here. Childhood is about harmed potential, the gradual restriction of ambitions, and this film here is quite the opposite. It is no ‘Zerkalo’ either. It is another exercise in the Spanish narrative tradition."

Can we save it?


M is for metal

Great "kids" book:

z is for zeppelin,

Of Awesome editorial reviews

Visiting the Oak boutique website I came across what I consider one of the supreme pieces of editorial writing I can remember. Perhaps it is because I also feel "old and confused" when visiting the store, perhaps because it makes fun of all that is cool. Excellent writing nonetheless.
here are extracts from the NewYorkTimes editorial titled:
Critical Shopper | Oak
Put Arm (A) Into Sleeve (B)

"If Heather Locklear had a parasitic twin emerging from her sternum who happened to be a nun, this would be something they would agree they could wear to Starbucks."

The tomblike dressing rooms have elegant, tall backlighted mirrors. The light illuminates only the sides of the mirrors, for a solar-eclipse effect that makes the mirror seem to hover in retrograde Satanic ecstasy, watching as you struggle blindly with openly hostile mutant-octopus cardigans that suddenly have 117 sleeves, no neck holes and no capacity for mercy.

I felt lucky to get out of that cardigan alive.

As I stumbled out of the dressing room, clammy, gasping and disoriented, the salesman appeared.

“We unfortunately sold out of the dress with the instruction manual,” he said, shrugging. “You had to wrap it around yourself three times.”

I pushed past him and fled into the street."

Near the subway, I saw a Hare Krishna struggling to get off his bicycle; his big gauze diaper-dress had become tangled in the chain. I wanted to clutch his beads, weeping. Brother, I failed. I didn’t have the training. But you … there’s hope for a fashion warrior like you."

The whole thing here

very low heights

Very cute shoes made for walking -you would think. But I do preffer to feel taller than what I'm. I would really preffer a 2.5" heel....why is this height soooooooo difficult to find, WHYYYY! this would be prrrrrrfect if the where that height. All shoes are either 4" or 1"....the 2.5 is so rare unless they are boots.

Foil Dress

I'm an openly devoted fan of ZERO by Maria
Cornejo. This is dress is one of the signature silhouettes in every collection. This is the Fall 08 foil dress.

She's opening a new store soon in Nolita. I visited the new space which has a very generous area and atmosphere.

Interesting pair of ACNE Sandal, boots on sale, I like the idea...
