Blackbird Blog: TROVATA v. FOREVER 21

Blackbird Blog: TROVATA v. FOREVER 21

Fashion: Helmut Lang.

My first expensive jeans I ever purchased were Helmut Lang jeans back in 98'. I fell out of love with the label mainly because my favorite Men's store in Seattle: Fast Forward went out of business the following year and then I kinda fell out of the loop with the label. Lately, I've been doing my research and found a couple of interesting pieces that caught my eye from their Fall 09' collection. I love the skinny leg jeans that bunch up right after the knee, I'm not feeling the boots on the model, but over all, layers, layers, layers are going to be key. Disagree, Agree?

Nothing really of interest happened this weekend...

unless you account for the motorboat I gave Courtney for her birthday, the fact that i found out a girl that I went on several dates with in the 90's was in fact an escort and appeared in a local pornographic video. Note to self, never play five degrees of separation with older bartenders because they know more people then you. I know something else happened but It's way too early to remember the last couple of days.

Music: Department of Eagles.

One of the things I love about working at Kuhlman is the fact that I get to work with Scott Kuhlman who has amazing taste in Music. Here is a band he's gotten me into called Department of Eagles from NYC which features a member of Grizzy Bear. Enjoy it's lush melodies and perpetual melancholy.

Fashion: Gucci

Here are pictures from Gucci's new Fall fashion show. Very New Wave/ Mod inspired pieces. These were my favorites.

Music: The Faces.

Last night while I was at Stephanie's house and I saw a vinyl copy of The Faces: Changes in their hallway. I guess it belongs to there landlord upstairs. I totally wanted to steal it, but funny enough I've been trying to download their best of for the last couple of days. For those of you would don't know who The Faces are? They consist of members of the 60's mod band The Small Faces. When their singer left to form Humble Pie, he was then replaced by Rod Stewart and the name was shorten. Great rock n' roll folks!

Stephanie and Kelly's new pad.

When I first moved to Seattle I lived in the dumpiest apartment on Capital Hill. Then 12 years later, Steph and Kelly move here from Tacoma and find the cutiest apartment, it's just not fair! Their place is so fucking glamorous! I'm about a month and a half away from finding a new place and I hope it's going to be as rad as the theirs!!!

Fashion: Rag and Bone.

Rag and Bone.

Simple, black suit. The length of the jacket is perfect. I'm a big fan of 60's Mod suits and this would suit me well.

Music: Soulwax.

When someone purchases your favorite order of food and personally delivers it to your work. You have no reason to be absolutely smitten with said person. <3

I'm putting the computer down today.

I haven't been reading as mush as I should be. I'm going to attempt to finish this amazing book I started on a month ago.

The Presets!!! Tomorrow night!!

Colby is opening up for The Presets tomorrow night at the Nectar Lounge in Fremont. I think you all should go. The Presets are on tour from New Zealand and are an amazing Electro group! Go!

I received a call from Tia who is one of the owners of The Rendezvous, last night. They want to offer me a position as a bartender for their service bar on Saturday nights. I'm not sure if I want to take it or not. I love working there under the table, but actually being an employee kinda scares me.

After work I went over to Aimee's house to finish off the beers that we bought two weekends ago. Low and behold Brandon was there and we went to town on said beers. Aimee stayed in because she was too hungover to come out. Brandon and I left and went to the new Twlight Exit proceeded to drink even more including a mini bottle of Tequila that Aimee bought me from Mexico. But my night didn't end there, nooooo, why would it? To the CHA CHA!!! Where I run into Pizza Girl (Kelsie). The only thing awesome about my night was the text battle of wit with Ms. Rebecca. :)

Sunglasses for summer...

I was cleaning out the sunglasses case at work last weekend and I stumbled on these sunglasses. I really want them, but alas, I cannot afford them. Dear Jesus, I know we haven't spoken in some time, but can you grant me a little extra luck in the money department??

Real villains.

The after party for Villains was a blast as well. Here, Eric from Villains shows me just how Californian he really is.

What an amazing show. Sole Repair seems to be the perfect spot for us. I wish we could have filled the place, but the important thing is everyone had a blast.
