Happy full moon trippers in Leo! My birthday is a few days away and I haven't had a moment to even think about it. I haven't been this busy in so long, but I guess that's a good thing. Currently eating oatmeal and dissecting my weird dream I had last night. Me and Dane Dehaan were building art sculptures in back of a hotel.. yeah don't ask. Shooting a few magazine editorials on my birthday weekend in Manhattan and having meetings all week for the production on Luna. I get a vacation the end of August before the Fashion Week madness set's in and it's all im thinking about. Beach, coconuts and no computer. In normal news my cat's crazy.
Hope everyone is enjoying there Summer so far!
TV Must See: Watch “Please Like Me” and I’ll Like You on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram
“Please Like Me” is my new Lol TV obsession and I can’t wait for everyone to see it! It will air on Pivot on August 1st, but a sneak peek of the first episode, Rhubarb And Custard, just posted online HERE.
It’s based on actual painfully awkward events of creator and star Josh Thomas. He is adorable, has a dog named John that he dresses in tutus and is on his way to being the male Lena Dunham.

Im so honored to have had a shoe feature done in WWD FN Platform! Read all about my shoe love below!
With her signature pink hair and penchant for sparkles, flower headbands and bold, quirky ensembles, Audrey Kitching clearly has a wild side. But the model, fashion blogger and designer is pragmatic when it comes to shoes.
“I like to dress up, but I also like to be able to run errands in the same outfit,” said Kitching, who divides her time between New York and Los Angeles and maintains well-stocked shoe closets in both cities. “I like to wear heels that are comfortable and mix street style with a casual daily life.”
The Philadelphia-born 27-year-old has two apparel lines and a jewelry collection, and in the past few seasons has become more visible on the footwear scene. For fall ’12, Irregular Choice named Kitching the face of the brand, and she served as art director, stylist and model for that season’s lookbook, which was shot in Kitching’s hometown.
She also modeled for emerging shoe designer Kerol D. last year and recently was hired as a designer for the Milan-based label. “I’m creating a 12-piece collection [for fall ’14],” Kitching said, noting her Kerol D. styles will be available in the U.S. and that the gig is likely permanent. “There will be a really chunky-heeled boot and a high heel. They are giving me free rein, so I’m a bit overwhelmed because there are so many choices.”
The multitasker also is adding published author to her resume. Her style guide, “Budget Fashionista,” which she is self-publishing, hits shelves this fall. “It teaches how you can have a designer wardrobe without [breaking the bank],” Kitching said.
Her own closets are a testament to that ideal, asFootwear News discovered when Kitching opened the doors to her New York abode and shared a glimpse of her wallet-friendly shoe collection.
Pairs owned: Roughly 200
Early shoe memories: “When ‘Sex & the City’ first came out, I was too young to understand it and get into it, but then [in my late teens] I started watching the reruns and DVDs and it made me become obsessed with shoes.”
Most beloved labels: “I really like Dolce Vita because they are comfortable. And Jeffrey Campbell is great for the super on-trend, crazy stuff. I like Irregular Choice as well because they’re wild. I have a few pairs of Elizabeth & James shoes, which are really comfortable. Then I have Vans and Chucks for hiking and exercise.”
Most frequently worn shoes: “I have a pair of House of Harlow 1960 moccasins that are rainbow beaded and kind of my slip-on, run-and-get-takeout shoes. As far as heels, my most worn would be a pair of Jeffrey Campbell leather lace-up boots with wood heels.”
Oldest pair: “Nike shoes that a Scottish designer named Pauline Clifford made for me about seven years ago. She hand-crystallized the entire shoe and I hardly wear them. I’m scared that the Swarovski crystals will come off, and they are in perfect condition. I wore them once for a photo shoot.”
Highest heel: “A lace-up boot by Unif with a 6.5-inch heel. I knew they were the highest, but I had to measure them [to be sure].”
Biggest footwear splurge: “Three years ago, when the Prada ‘chandelier’ shoes came out, I got them on clearance for like $400. It wasn’t bad compared to the original price.”
Most regrettable pairs: “Those are the shoes I consider ‘photo-shoot shoes.’ I buy a lot of shoes online so I don’t really get to try them on. Some look great online and then they get here and they are so painful or hard to walk in.”
Wildest style: “I have this Irregular Choice pair where the actual heel is a diamond shape. It comes down to a little point but [above that is] a huge triangle. They’re pretty crazy, and every time I wear them, people are like, ‘How are you walking?’”
Currently coveting: “Acne Studios’ [Salma High] boots. They have rainbow-glitter jelly heels. It’s awesome.”
Shopping destinations: Solestruck.com, Opening Ceremony, Nordstrom and Barneys New York
Technique for locating hard-to-find brands: “I’m a crazy Google person. I will Google something for hours until I find it. If you really want to find something and you search for it, you’ll find it.”
Best tip for shopping on a budget: “At the end of every season, like mid-summer, big online shoe stores put all their stuff on sale because they want to bring in that fall inventory. Wait until the middle of July to buy some of your summer shoes, and you are going to get them for 60 percent off.”
Favorite footwear moment from a film: “The movie ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’ stands out for me, when [main character Rebecca Bloomwood] is putting her credit card in the freezer in a cup of water so she can’t go buy shoes.”

“A thoroughly good relationship with ourselves results in being still, which doesn’t mean we don’t run and jump and dance about. It means there’s no compulsiveness. We don’t overwork, overeat, oversmoke, overseduce. In short, we begin to stop causing harm.”
Who: Audrey Kitching
Where she was born: Philadelphia
Where she lives now: NYC
What she does: Fashion journalist, Model, Designer, Stylist, Studying Reiki Master
What she’s currently working on:
I have so many projects in the works at all times–slightly overwhelming to be honest. The ones taking up most of my time currently are a shoe collection I’m designing for a brand in Italy; The Fashionista’s Budget Bible–a book im releasing this Fall; a limited edition clothing line; Crystal Cactus–hand made crystal necklaces infused with positive vibrational frequencies; and a vegan fashion cooking show online!
What good energy means to her:
Honestly, real, loyal and loving. So many people want to preach about being some type of prophet or god like being yet their actions are so contradicting. If you judge other people, gossip, spread jealousy and are more consumed with materialism then the people and species around you then your probably not spreading good energy! You have to love everything as much as yourself. That’s true positivity.
What she thinks there is too much of, and too little of:
Too little of: chocolate, time for bubble baths, kittens, world love, real education of things that matter and Ryan Goslings.
Too much of: misquotes in the summer, satanic style clothing, bad extensions and peas… I really don’t like peas unless they are snowpeas.
With whom she would like most to go on a tête à tête:
Probably Ryan Gosling, I’m really on a Ryan kick, I think he’s probably really strange and weird in person and I’m into that. But he should have that blond bleached hair and fake tattoos look like in A Place Beyond The Pines.. that was pretty badass.
What she would be doing if she didn’t have her current occupation:
I’m training to be a Reiki Master, so most likely something in energy healing, vegan chef or interior designer.. I kinda do all three as hobby’s anyway. You have to have a passion and love what you do.
On her life-to-do list:
Visit India and ride an elephant, drink vanilla chia lattes under the Eiffel Tower, do yoga at the Egyptian Pyramids, and crack the codes of the universe.
Her earliest memory:
I have this strange memory of being about 2 and standing under the kitchen table in a Minnie Mouse onsie with a pink sippie cup of apple juice..
What she considers a fashion faux-pas:
UGGS, wearing pajama pants in public and trying to wear every trend at the same time.
What cracks her up:
What she can’t live without:
Bubble baths, tea, my iPhone, vegan taco’s, raw kale juice, cats and over-sized sunglasses.
With whom she would like to grow old:
My cat, my boyfriend Daniel and possibly a baby lion.
What she would like to leave to future generation:
Audrey’s WILD Wish:
For everyone to be nice to each other and unicorns to really exist so I can ride one instead of driving.
Emma Watson recently revealed she only has eight pairs of shoes in her possession. In part of the movie The Bling Ring She says that Paris Hilton could never wear all the clothes she owns in her life, half her closet even still have the price tags on it!
