Build a good name. Keep your name clean. Be concerned about doing good work. Protect your work, and if you build a good name, eventually that name will be its own currency. - Patti Smith quoting William Burroughs
Happy New Year y’all!
A week late but I don’t really care. I’m going to avoid indulging in listing out the 50 ways in which I’m going to better myself this year. Boring. Let’s be real - am I going to stop going to bars alone? Or start wearing pants on Sunday’s? Probably not. But I can take style cues from a darling little tot I’ve become manically obsessed with. Normal.
It may be the fact that I’m approaching prime child bearing years, but I’m totally smitten. I added one of my favorite KC quotes to this solid shot of Alaia. Children after all, in their most simple form, are fearless.
That’s one thing we can all strive for in 2013. xx

Amazing cards by #Ashkahn at In God We Trust. Obsessed.
As a marketing/PR professional I’m constantly seeking out sources of inspiration - even if brands don’t always buy into alternative activations, they always appreciate “big ideas” (a phrase I hear so often it’s almost painful).
My co-worker and close friend sent through this amazingly powerful interactive video executed by Danish fashion brand, Only. I’ve never seen anything like it and knew I had to share it in this space. Click the photo to link to the landing site.
Because we live in a world where creativity can’t be executed for creativity’s sake, where ROI and monetary measuring are always lurking in the corner, here are the stats:
- Within 2 weeks, they had over 280,000 unique visits
- 442% increase on interaction with Only.com
- The Liberation movie has been viewed over 1m times across more than 100 countries
- Campaign won 3 Cannes Lions
Mini style setters. Amazing. Thanks to D.Keehn for sharing.
What’s the point of an H&M collaboration if the common folk STILL can’t afford your shit. Margiela Plexi Wedge Boot. $400. #fashionfail
Our mantra for Monday. :)
Hands down favorite 2012 Fall Ad Campaign. The juxtaposition between the muted metallics and the bright sherbert hues on the opposite page is amazing. Such a departure from the lush aesthetic and deep colors filling September issues. Long live McQueen.
