Patience my little grasshoppas, these posts take a while. After taking a pole of my jungle buddies, I’ve come up with a list of characteristic clothing items worn by old school junglists. While techno snobs look serious, junglists look tuff. As always post a comment with any additional suggestions.  Always looking for more/better pics.  Thanks to Toronto Jungle for keeping their shit online and in a relatively accessible format. 1. Cargo pants/capris/skirts (eg. UFOs) 2. Crack […]

Natalia Vodionova Bubbleicious by Craig McDean for W Magazine 002

Kinda funny but the older I get, the brighter my outfits get.  Ten years ago I wouldn’t be caught dead in pink.  Only shades and earth tones.  Now I have multiple pink-themed outfits, lilac fun fur and everything.  The techno-snob has definitely been playa-fied over the years.  Outfits below would be my version of a candy raver.  Or a more urban appropriate and tasteful version of my playa wear.

Eventually i’ll get around to posting some of my own DIYs, but for now I’m relying on the generosity of others. If you haven’t figured out already, i’m obsessed with crazy collars, cowls, and neck things, the weirder the better.  I attribute this to 1) my techno-snob aesthetic and 2) growing up in Canada.  In an upcoming post i’ll spell out the hallmarks of the techno-snob style a bit more for the non-southern Ontario ravers.

[Ed. note – i’m sick so not much commentary this week.  Sorry ] “Sometime during the genesis of this collection, the Wizard of Oz bumped into Predator” (style.com) Holy shit Style.com, I can’t think of a more appropriate stylistic description.  Well played. [Another ed. note.  Not so well played style.com, you have the worst photos of this collection online.  You might as well have your editor just write prose than use this photographer.]     […]

Fast Forward: Nike

Fast Forward Fridays: Nike

Athletic wear used to be pretty de rigeur in the party scene for chicks.  Have to say it was pretty great to go to parties where dressing like a tomboy was considered dead sexy.  And clothes designed for workouts does help with sustaining 5+ hours of dancing.  If I had oodles of money I would have a pair of adidas shell toes and matching track jacket in every colour possible.  Never really was into Nike, […]

Happy NYE!!!

Well this was quite the year in terms of personal development.  Still a ways to go, particularly professionally and financially, but I’m looking forward to the new year  as I’ve worked very very hard to build a stable foundation for myself.  Off to a jungle party tonight, then likely to the CoZo and a proper catch up with my old crew.  Believe it or not, in oh 14 years of partying, mostly in the GTA, […]
