Cool Human: Molly Crabapple on Being Yourself and Working Hard by Diana Baltazar

"We live in an era where a lot of the old, supporting institutions are either opening up or crumbling, so I suggest that people don’t try to distort who they are to fit notions of what’s professionally viable, because that paradigm is over. I suggest you focus in on your weirdness, your passions, and your f%#*ed-up damage, and be yourself as truly as you can. Express that with as much craft, discipline, and rigor as you can; work as hard as you can to build a career out of that, and then you’ll create a career that you love and that’s true to yourself, as opposed to doing what you think other people want and burning yourself out when you’re older."

ECO HANDBAG DESIGNER THAT WE <3 GILBERT & LEONA by Diana Baltazar

There's so much about Gilbert & Leona that we love!  Their products are made from recycled and post-manufacture leather and hardware.  Everything is built with lasting quality, and the design sensibility made to outlast those silly 1-season trends.  We love the brand's style because at once it's organic / archaic AND futuristic / post-apocalyptic / sci-fi.  Whether or not that's what they're going for, that's how we see them -- in an upcoming sci-fi film and in our wardrobes!  Check out our fav picks from their store:

And check out these Awesome necklaces made in collaboration with Florence & Leah

Our Creepy Impressionistic Halloween Photos by Diana Baltazar

Had an amazing time at the HalloQueens ball at #PS1, the latest party by the legendary #SusanneBartsch "New York City's patron saint of transformation and inclusion".  We love the positive energy and otherworldly self expression at her events.  Helps us remember what it's like to be wild and free!  @bartscharama @MoMaPS1

We <3 Lucius!!!   Check out this inspiring song about what a real woman is like.  Learn from the Wildewoman how we can rewrite our future any way we want because the truth is, We're Free!  "We'll only be bound by the things we choose" 

We pretty much love every song they've ever written.
