Courtney Love, Hedi Slimane Diary.
“In bed that night I invented a special drain that would be underneath every pillow in New York, and would connect to the reservoir. Whenever people cried themselves to sleep, the tears would all go to the same place, and in the morning the weatherman could report if the water level of the Resevoir of Tears had gone up or down, and you could know if New York was in heavy boots. And when something really terrible happened- like a nuclear bomb, or at least biological weapons attack- an extremely loud siren would go off, telling everyone to get to Central Park and to put sandbags around the resevoir.”

Catherine Baba’s work is perfect. More can be found at her website. & additionally, she has such a charming name.
“Her name is Mary and we met in Santa Barbara, CA. The first time I saw her I was taken aback by the swirl of freckles on her face. Later, I was so obsessed by them that I used to call them “chocolate crumbles.” I stalked her for a long time before we talked. My first gift to her was an alive lady bug for obvious reasons: they are both red and dotty.
After school we traveled together. We went to San Diego, the place where she comes from and then to Greece, the place where I come from. We were hanging out by the pool one afternoon, when her sister winked at me and we both pushed Mary into the water. With her clothes on. I ran inside to wear my bathing suit, instead I came back with the camera.
It was the happiest period of my life. Love had made my heart swell. Travelling had made the world bigger. Possibilities were endless. But things don’t turn out as planned sometimes and the girl you love turns her back and walks away.”

“A revolution without dancing is a revolution not worth having.”
Leyla & Ben from Hearts Revolution are not only some of my favorite people featured on The Selby… they are also creators of some of my favorite music. What an inspiration-filled apartment to live in! For quite some time now, I have gone with the trend of wearing more subtly-toned clohting, such as black/grey(lots&lots&lotsofgrey!)/nude/pale pink/army green… but these fascinating fellows have me considering a much livelier approach to color. Tomorrow I will give it a a go & wear neons neons neons.
