Sissy’s Spring 2017: What I’m Into

We Love

Our Fashion Editor-At-Large, Sissy Sainte-Marie, shares her current obsessions.

DANNY DUNCOMBE CERAMICS

Sissy-Image3-DannyDuncombeCeramics

The series of one-of-a-kind pieces by self-taught ceramic sculptor Danny Duncombe is aptly named As Above So Below to reflect “the link between exterior appearance and interior experience”. I do wish I could live inside of one of them. Maybe someday he’ll do large scale series, such a subdivision of homes, based on his sculptures. dannyduncombe.com

MICRODOSING LSD

LSD-NEW

Not planning to try it. Just curious to see how this new trend for treating anxiety and depression pans out.

CARLY JO MORGAN STUDIO

Speaking of psychedelics, Carly Jo Morgan, is one person who seems to have been born microdosing. In addition to having the world’s cutest haircut at the moment, she also has an amazing mind that comes up with the dopest furniture of this century. carlyjomorgan.com

THERMAGE

I’m a skeptic when it comes to beauty products and a champ at resisting pretty packaging and promises of miracles, but I’m a sucker for science, technology and proven lab results. So last month, when I was desperate for some real-deal anti-aging help, I went to Los Feliz Med Spa to try Thermage, a non-invasive cosmetic procedure which uses radio frequency energy to improve skin elasticity and firmness by stimulating new collagen production over a period of four to six months. So by my 43rd birthday this September, I expect to be a dead ringer for Elvira Hancock.

ZADIE SMITH

Thanks to The Gentlewoman for putting her on their cover last year, I discovered my new favorite writer. During fall I read White Teeth and Swing Time back to back and now I’m on to NW. This spring, I look forward to making my way through every word she’s ever written.

ERYKAH BADU

Sissy-Image6-ErykahBadu

I’m rediscovering another oft-turbaned totem of mine whose LIVE cassette I once listened to exclusively, on repeat, nonstop, for an entire summer, pre-Y2K. Twenty years later and still no other pop star has come close to her wokeness, her songwriting, her delivery, her inimitable style, or her ability to lead with her brains and courage rather than her sexuality, even when she’s buck naked. Well, except Solange of course.

THE RULES OF MAGIC: SOMEDAY SERMONS

Sissy-Image7-RulesofMagic

Alan Phillips’ “Someday Sermons” are newletter nirvana. These quick reads “combining real world experience, philosophy, creativity, and spirituality to assist and inspire individuals and organizations on their journey of manifesting their magic and achieving sustainable fulfillment” keep it trill and keep me going. therulesofmagic.com

DUNES MAGAZINE

Sissy-Image8-DunesMagazine

I love when people follow through on ideas I’d never have the gumption to put the blood, sweat, tears, and hours into. Big ups to Lauren Coleman, Sarah Kissell and Tiff Horn for manifesting Dunes Magazine. “Dunes celebrates Palm Springs, capturing the women who continue to live the elegance of a bygone age.” dunes.online

SUMMER SUITS

Sissy-Image9-SummerSuits-v2

Yes, I’m a sets addicts and last year I wore a summer suit in the form of an Olderbrother blazemono and matching trousers every chance I had. Judging by the looks of the Spring/Summer 2017 runways and street style cognoscenti, the summer suit is still in full effect and I’m looking to add some slouchy linen and smart silk hook-ups in earthy tones to my wardrobe repertoire.
