annals of beads

so, i went to my favorite store in the bead district on saturday to make myself a string of hippie beads, but then got sidetracked a bit. i ended up buying a bunch of floral grandma's teapot style beads and a bunch of jet black hot topic beads. me and my friend kate sat in madison square park and stringed them together for the necklace equivalent of arsenic and old lace. [ps. we overheard the BEST thing: this 6 year old white kid on rollerblades asked this little black kid on a boogie board (apparently with no parent in sight), "Dude, who takes care of you?"]



i'm pretty psyched on the results. it's like hippie beads meets antique shop meets goth teenager with an emily the strange bowling bag. i wore them out on saturday:

this is when i realized that this summer i dress most often like an early 90s gay morrissey fan. i have a hardbound copy of 'the apes of god' and have a bunch of keith haring prints from the pop shop. i'm basically an extra from the kids in the hall sketch, 'steps.'

which i'm obviously totally into.

i am down for any addition that will make me look gayer/more early 90s.

i love this day look.
those look like some dream cutoffs.

and next time you make a necklace, just go ahead and make two.
