call me ishmael



j.crew peacoat/ steve madden topsiders

this peacoat is my favorite piece of clothing, hands down.  first of all, it has these huge wooden toggles and looks like something herman melville might have worn as he smoked a pipe and surveyed the foggy new england coast. second, it's from j.crew and I got it last winter when I lived in santa cruz and was unhappy and the coat just made me feel safe.  I don't feel that way about any of my other clothes. I really don't feel that way about objects in general.

anyway. these pics were from up at my parents' house.  my dad and I had quite a bit of photo fun. my dad did some modeling in his heyday, and now he and my mom are world travelers.
