i sometimes move

Here are two moderately accurate representations of me in motion, save the absence of my tail, which I cleverly hid. First is this video lookbook for Wren's Fall 2012 collection:
We shot it on the one rainy L.A. day of the year, and it was cool outside, and the house we were in had wind chimes and rugs hanging everywhere, and we listened to Cat Stevens, and it was really really rad working with people I've admired for years, and I quietly wept about the realization that life cannot always be this PRETTY.

It also occurred to me at some point recently that most people don't love talking about OUR DAUGHTERS AND THE MEDIA at parties, so I took those thoughts to TEDxTeen instead:

I hope you like both of them, and that you have a good rest of your week.

small things

Yesterday was the four-year anniversary of this blog! Congratulations to me for never pressing the "delete" button. I spoke at TEDxTeen, which was a nice way to bring it all full circle or something, and that video will be up next week. I couldn't think of a good April Fool's joke for today, but I will direct you to last year's and one from three years ago, both of which I am still very proud of, so proud that I don't know why I haven't won any Nobel Prizes or presidential elections or other fancy things for them.

Here is a photo I took with help from my dad (I'm never sure how to credit someone if it's just me being like LISTEN TO ME AND STAND HERE AND PRESS THIS BUTTON AND DON'T MOVE?) in L.A. a couple weeks ago. My coat was a gift from Wren and I got the shoes at a vintage fair.
