You’ve noticed from the lack of posts that Elliot & Isabel are out for a while, absent from the blogosphere, leaving a void where there once was brilliant cynicism and humor. Sorry about that.

We’re going to be gone for a little bit longer, but we won’t leave you forever.


Tim Blanks on Dolce and Gabbana. We Agree

“Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have found a perfect formula: Sicily as an inspiration for clothes modeled on the catwalk by Sicilians themselves. The sweet authenticity of the idea has powered their last few collections for men, and when cynics in today’s audience sighed, “Oh no, not again,” you wanted to slap them. Or torture them by passing on Gabbana’s confident declaration: “There is so much in Sicily, we could be doing this forever.””

Instagramming before Instagram.



I so wished there was a music video for this song, and there actually is! And it’s exactly what I expected. Feelings, nature, sparklers, pianos, complacency, lo-fi sunsets–all the things Elliot and I simultaneously love and hate🙂


Top 3 Places To Wear Herve Leger Swim

1. A sailboat off the coast of Istanbul. If the sailboat is matte black and over 150 ft., bring five of them.

2. Dubrovnik

3. Any home + pool pictured in the Nicki Minaj ft. Lil’ Wanye music video (posted below)

Places where you would think Herve Swim would be appropriate, but what you should wear instead.

1. Ibiza. Missoni. Missoni, Missoni, Missoni. Espadrilles, chic backpacks, hoop earrings.

2. Cote d’ Azure. Emilio Pucci. Eres. Lilibon. Or, nothing.

3. Sardinia. Prada.




Two Really, Really Bad Songs, That You Can’t Help But To Listen To Kind of a Lot

You know what that’s like right? This song:

by HAIM, is actually really bad, but it has some kind of hook, some deep symphonic heartstring, that’s keeping me frustratingly engaged. Same with THIS song:

Summer is full of guilty pleasures, right? Ironically both of these groups are under NEON GOLD records, which normally has some pretty big hitters on its batting lineup. I don’t know, I don’t even like music that much.


Run New York

I had the surprising pleasure of catching Angel Haze perform at Versus/Versace/J.W. Anderson’s NYC rave last night.

The event reminded me of mid-2000’s downtown Miami warehouse parties – so, obviously, I loved it. But I didn’t stay long. Every single Manhattan sceney-bopper you can imagine was there, from ex-Madame Wong’s door-guys to wannabe-what’s-his-names and so on and so forth. Also, J.W. Anderson is hot as f*ck. 

Anyway Angel Haze is kind of dope. Maybe even a better Azealia Banks (whhhhhaaaat). We’ve known about Miss Haze for a while but, like, didn’t really care. Now, we care.
