My Thakoon backstage post is up today! Loving the Nars makeup, I so need the lip in my life.

Guess what I’m working on this very moment? Finally finishing the S|S 2011 photos for my .com. I will finish it tonight, woo.
So excited! PF [Playing DFashion—a Russian magazine] published a photo I took of my dear friend James at Women in an article about agents. This was backstage at Wang with his girls. I just wanted to share, because I can do things like that.
Backstage @ Marc Jacobs after the show. I love Wixson/the guard and the fact that they would hold it open a little longer so I could get a shot. I just wanted to post this, annoy my friend William Yan—who told me to stop posting non-bb images because it’s ~ruining my blog~
Also I wanted to rant again that people are stealing my images and they’re even following me!!! Gross, rude, gtfo, etc… I’m flattered but it’s really not okay to dismiss the creator of the image. Move to NY, figure out how to afford my life, and then you can take similar shots. Until then, credit back.
I have one with a less lolz background but I like the lolz going on. Backstage @ Kors. Also, because someone once asked me if I do indeed take my own photos [wtf?] I did take these myself, I promise.
