People I Like: Hannah Kristina Metz

November 9, 2010

I’ve been following Hannah’s flickr(s) since I grabbed one of her wedding photos as inspiration for my slated for 2006 wedding (that I never had — long story) and got hooked. Recently, she started up a vintage-inspired lingerie and dresses vertical that I so totally dig called The Loved One.

Hannah has loads of fans and was featured in a Quick Silver Women’s campaign a couple (few) years ago to boot. Regardless of all that…she is a stunning lady with load of creativity — she makes undies, draws, and take gorgeous photos.

I just wanted to let you know and/or remind you about her.

It’s rainy and gray in Chicago. Makes me want to movie nap and bake some cheese straws. Since I can’t do that, let’s do the next best thing and look at some stills from Jules et Jim shall we?

Feelings: The “Marie Claire” Situation

October 27, 2010

Writing about a fashion magazine’s blog isn’t typically a topic I’d address here, but lets’ talk about it anyway. Everyone else is. Marie Claire‘s blogger Maura Kelly hit a lot of nerves with her yay or nay: fatties get a room already post.

I don’t feel like taking this Kelly gal to task for being a dick or spelling things wrong; or even harp on the unnamed Marie Claire editor who allegedly asked the question that spawned Kelly’s post.

I really just want to take this moment of outrage to check out some hot vintage photographs of people big, small, medium, mustachioed, and wrinkled. Because the sexiest — the most gorgeous/appealing/interesting — faces and bodies don’t often look like a Real Housewife of Orange County. Just a reminder.

Feelings: Good for Tavi

October 22, 2010

I am happy for Tavi. She got Kathleen Hanna’s Feminist sweater. I mean, it’s no eating cherry cake 2 feet from one of your favorite people and then awkwardly having a chat/taking a photo with said person, but you know…

Enjoy that sweater, girl.

Just putting these things here. It should make sense later.

Last night after work, I spent the evening multitasking and eating cold, fried tofu. (Local brand, Phoenix Bean. So good!) I was editing videos for the TVB TV channel and reading Robert Musil’s Five Women. Click here to read a bit about Musil’s books.

Lately, I have been a horrible reader, choosing to consume my words via blogs and twitter instead of a heavy book. As such, I’ve been condensing my attention span to gnat-like status and causing tunnel vision. But, then manfriend brought Five Women home and I knew I’d found my gateway book.

I’ve read Vol. 1 of The Man Without Qualities and loved it. For ages I wanted to reread it and finally read Vol. 2. Granted, Vol. 2 isn’t supposed to be a true continuation, but more like a diary…still though, 1 follows 2 and I read 1 several years ago…blahblah…

Anyway! This is all to say that I had forgotten how terrific reading a real book feels; to detach from what one considers their job or their jobhobby is super important and I just wanted to mention it here for you guys — just in case.

Feelings: Cartier-Bresson

September 23, 2010

Digging on these photos today. All by Henri Cartier-Bresson. You can visit them at The Art Institute if you’re in Chicago.
