Do your thing

Rough around the edges, hardened by city life and that 9 to 5 grind...I'm more inspired by the raw and real these days than a retail catalog. So I found myself in New Jersey last weekend at the Exxxotica Expo, supporting my good friend, photographer Ellen Stagg, who had a booth this year. It was intriguing to see this world summed up in a few aisles at a convention center. That and the people watching....and I thought NYC had interesting characters.

I love the first girl's style, it has a kind of urban tribal feel! I want all her necklaces!

Holy shit that must have been crazy people watching. I can't even imagine what that looks like. Or maybe I can.

I know exactly what you mean about feeling more inspiration from real, raw life than catalogues and such. I don't know if it's pinterest, blogging or just me but lately . . . I've been feeling rather uninspired. Maybe I just need to get out more.
