Sean

Not entirely sure WHY I am posting this...
I was just thinking about Sean Connery... and I thought: how old is this guy???
He was born in 1930 ??!! That means he is 80 years old !!??!!
I remember years ago, I always thought he was very hot... and NO I am not into old men. But honestly, he was a very good looking older man.
As I was trying to find pictures of how he looks like now, (I image google searched Sean Connery 2011 --- i love image google search) I stumbled upon some old pictures of him.
Is this a weird question if I wonder if Sean is ... gay???
Is he???
He certainly looks gay in some of these pictures.
What is up with the red leather???? Where is this from???





Anyway,
Sean Connery is still genius

obsessed

A while ago I posted something on Valentino... I think it was after I'd seen the Valentino movie. I was so touched by him. He was so CUUUUUTE!! With his fat pugs in his insanely big mansion, all dressed up and orange... I then thought that it was a bit of a shame how the new designers were taking over and were changing his original idea of how a Valentino woman should look like...
But now the movie is in the past and we moved on and I am absolutely LOVING the new look.
I love how the casting of the show and campaign is young and cool. The hair and makeup is simple but cool... a bit grunge.... and the clothes are amazing!! Which is weird for me to say because I dont even wear dresses!! But I do wear AND can afford the accessories. Ha! I love the studs on the shoes and bags. It makes such a classic shape suddenly becomes so ... cool?
haha! How many times can you use the word COOL... Lordy lord!
Bon, soit ... I am buying myself a new bag, and I think I am going to get a Valentino bag...
One of these will do



Now I just have to ask one of our friends over at the fashion dept. to get me a discount :)

Nail art .... yeah ... it's art !

Duuuuuuuuudes!!!
I'm like OBSESSED with nail art these days !!
While I was snooping around on Facebook, going from one friend's page to another... Clicking on other people's profiles... Checking out lives of people I dont know (I LOVE doing that ... Yes I admit) ... I bumped into this one girl. Her name is Naomi Yasuda. She's a nail technician here in NY and she makes INSANE nails!!
You cant call it a manicure anymore ... its ART !!
Burgers, Hello Kitty's, Mini Mouse, Chanel logo, diamonds... I mean... you name it, she paints it ON YOUR NAIL !!
I mean ... You know how TINY a nail is to fit a f***ing Hello Kitty face on it????
I remember about 1,5 year ago, the door person of this store I used to work at, told me about his girlfriend doing nail art... He had some pictures of the nails she did... And I looked at him... thinking: wow, so ghetto and WRRRRONG!!!!
I CLEARLY changed my mind! I am obsessed now. The only thing I am thinking these days is: grow your nails woman and get your nails done!!
Another thought ... I probably also should think WHAT I want on my nails, because I want them ALL !!












This is the place where you can get it done: http://www.hellobeautifulsalonnyc.com/services.html#
The Confirming Friend says GO and grace your nails with some art ... they deserve it!

AND OFF TO A NEW START

Hello Hello Hello!
Haven't written on my blog for ... uuuh ... a really long time.
Anyway, here we go again.
There is the amazing brand called WARBY PARKER.
They make glasses and the frame AND glasses are only $95 ... NOT KIDDING!!
And there is a very good cause attached to this brand: For every pair you buy, 1 pair of glasses goes to someone who can't afford buying glasses.
http://www.warbyparker.com/
Since my sister gave me a pair of baby blue glasses, I'm obsessed with wearing them!!! (Its the Roosevelt Bondiblue ones)
The splash of color on my face is simply GORGEOUS. Yes... I said I am gorgeous ....

KORS IS A HORSE

My title has nothing to do about what I will say in this post...
NY Fashion week was FUN for the first time.
I didnt have crazy hours of working on castings... because I didnt cast any shows this season.
I was just happy at my office during the day and partying the fashion parties at night.
AMAZING!
We already passed London fashion week, I know. But I just want to tell you this.
I actually LOVE Michael Kors...
It might be weird, but his fabrics and his clothes looks so RICH.
Amazing.
And I tell you. It's all about looking rich sometimes...
I wouldn't say no to these numbers here below.




The Confirming friend says: buy clothes that make you look RICH

How about I tell you about MY first day of fashion week

I arrive at work today and my colleague goes: you heard McQueen's dead?
....
whaaaaaaaattttt?????
One of the most talented designers of my time decided to leave us behind... HOW SAD!!!
If you think if all those great shows he did!
That last show he did w the crazy shoes and the prints!
The red lips he once did and the cans on the model's head.
The guys show where all the guys looked like they escaped Sweeney Todd.
The hologram of Kate Moss.
Sooooo many good shows...
I was thinking to myself... Typical. It's the most gifted and highly intelligent ones that commit suicide.
You see it all the time. They can't handle it....

After that I had to break the news I am changing jobs.
Feels like a break up!!!

The day went quite well after. No too much stress.
Just some cancelations again...

At 8pm I went to Erin Wasson's show.
Saw Yeasayer play. Awesome!
The show was at ABC carpet, which was amazing bc we were all sitting in carpets...
stacks of carpets!
Fun!!

And then... I saw Patti Smith play... she is insanely amazing and inspiring!
She said: Be Alive. Be Happy. Be Proud. Work Hard.
I thought that was such an amazing thing to say.
She laughs on stage. Has fun. Interacts w people. SINGS AMAZING!!!!!
She's my new hero. She's my mentor.
Tomorrow I am checking out all her music.







The Confirming Friend had a very spiritual day today and heavy weighed w weird news...

Playlist February

Writing on this blog all of a sudden became something totally retarded.
I decided today to only write about what I notice in fashion (like the other kazillion blogs) and music (like, yeah, another billion blogs).
I realized how totally retarded a blog is anyway.
Like, who on earth wants to read about what The Confirming Friend puts on her face???
Or what she eats??
Or who she thinks is hot???
Right??
So yeah.
You should check out www.pandora.com and create the radio station: aril brikha.
You're like at a minimal trance berlin party. but it's not that hard, you can't listen to it at work.
It's actually quite amazing how you can listen and work to it. But at the same time, you can totally go out on it.
It's dark but oh so good.
Have a look at the following artists:
Pantha Du Prince - AMAZING
Alex Dolby
Extrawelt
Woody McBridge
Muzzaik
Krash Garett
Pitch Black
Aril Brikha - AMAZING

Enjoy!
The Confirming Friend is annoyed w the stupidity of a blog but loves listening to dark minimal/trance
