How deliciously creepy is this collection of photographs by Martina Hoogland Ivanow?! I am obsessed with her use of light, shadows & colors. It’s is also much more interesting if you know the inspiration behind the AnOther Magazine spread titled “From the Yellow Wallpaper”. If you attended an all girls school, like I so foolishly did for my first year of college, you’ve read the short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. If not, you should know that it’s a phenom short story which has been critically interpreted as an early feminist text, revealing the harsh way women were medically treated by during times of psychological and emotional distress. The story is about a woman confined to a room all summer by her husband, prohibited from doing anything beyond sitting and staring at the walls, due to her affliction with depression. Short story shorter: she goes from bad to worse and begins seeing women walking around behind the putrid yellow wallpaper, finally begins believing that she herself is one of these women behind the wallpaper. In the end she refuses to leave the confines of the room, and this new world that she belongs to. The story ends abruptly with out any consolation or confirmation that she will leave and get better. I wish psychosis and impending doom could always look this elegant.

In her teens to the mid married years, my mother was a crafting feind. She was the mack of knitting, crocheting, sewing, needlepoint, embroidery, etc. etc. Straight up, my momma aced the economics of the home. It’s been years since she’s been able to pick up her knitting needles (other than to teach me) or sit at the seiwng machine (other than to help me). Today, I asked her if she knew how to macrame, she said “yes, I used to”. I then asked “will you teach me”, and with a repulsed look replied “OooOOoo gross, you dont want to incorporate that into your clothing… It’s so dated! it’s so ugly! Its impossible to make macrame look sophisticated!”
I guess Will and Jazzy Jeff were right… parents just don’t understand….

The most enviable asset of pretty girls. Nice legs can make or break the asthetic. Q:Who has them A:everybeautifulgirlever. They make up half of the potentially beautiful whole. Fashion caters to them in the likes of miniskirts, short short shorts, high high heels, high-waisted, tight-belted… leggings latching on for dear life to the irrisistable inseam. color me lazy. Tomorrow I will do 500 lunges after a solid half hour on the stairstepper while reciting the Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock.
