I love that point in a friendship when you get what the other person’s style is - their “thing.” You see a knit jersey tie and think of them immediately; a type of weather, a bad movie, a woman’s outfit. You know, with absolute certainty, that your friend would enjoy this thing with you more than anyone else in the world. You feel closer in that moment of recognition, even if they’re not there.

"A few years ago, I got a call on my cell phone from a twelve year old child from my village. He was calling me from a bus stop. He’d taken a bus into the city alone, and he was calling me to ask if I could help him find a way to go to school. Both of his parents had died of AIDS, and he had no money for tuition. I told him to stay where he was, and left work immediately to pick him up. At first I was very mad at him. He should not have travelled alone. But then I looked at him and I saw myself. I’d also been desperate to go to school after my father was killed, but we had no money. So even though I was suffering myself, I told him I would try to help him. My salary was not enough, so I tried many things to get the money. After work, I went to the landfill to hunt for recyclables. But after I paid to have them cleaned, there was no money left. Now I’m trying to make bricks. I have a small operation in the village to make bricks, and I sell them in the city. It doesn’t make much money, but it’s enough to pay tuition for the boy and three of his siblings.”
This was shot 7 years ago for the “Fashion Rocks” supplement to the 2007 September issue of US Vogue/Allure/W. I remember I was in middle school and how badly i wanted to dress like this. I really adored this photo back then and still do! Strange how I am now the age of these models in the photo and thinking back to how much I wanted to be them

I’ve wanted to see The Killers since I was 11.. They were the first band i ever obsessed about, but I never got the chance till a couple nights ago, in an intimate venue for 500. I used to want to meet Brandon Flowers sooo much, and I got my wish that day. He was rushing and speed signing fans and about to head into his car but I managed to hand him some sunflowers. He looked surprised and said thank you, we looked at each other just smiling. He was rushing past fans and I gave him the flowers - he paused and said thank you, smiled and held my eyes . No autograph, no conversation, no photo. That made the moment. I could only smile back. Show was good but maybe i hyped it up too much. Ended up with one of B’s sweaty towels! Ha! 11 year old me would not have believed.
