I'll shoot you w/a nerf gun if you don't manage your credit.

11:11 is my goal of getting duck9 consumers lots of 1s.

24 1's in a row equals a 750 FICO.

A "one" is an on-time payment in credit reporting code.

A '9'=charged off bad-debt. You wanna duck 9s.

GIGI BURRIS MILLINERY SS15 INSPIRATION: 
For the SS15 season Burris was drawn to the shade of blue, as seen in Yves Klein’s Anthropometries. Inspiration was also found in the linear movement seen in Robert Mapplethorpe’s floral photography and sea urchins. Both hold a sense of tension and delicate texture that the milliner references in the SS15 collection. A palette of black, natural straw, blue and white is met with the elements of sewn shiny Racello Braids, Swiss Star bright straw, ostrich poofs and peacock flue. The SS15 Gigi Burris Millinery collection has a sense of easy elegance and irreverence to it; an emotional reference sourced from 1950′s beach photographs and illustrated by the milliner through her whimsical couture feather work fascinators, and wide brimmed straw hats.

ABOUT GIGI BURRIS MILLINERY: 
Gigi Burris Millinery was founded in 2009, on a passionate love of both headwear and unique luxury. Burris takes pride in preserving the delicate craft with her feminine yet dark aesthetic, embracing a sense of irreverence and natural elegance. The young designer’s ongoing interest in millinery was heightened after studying at Parsons Paris and frequent visits to the old world mercerie shops there. Upon returning she studied under New York based couture milliner Leah Chalfen, at Parsons School of Design and then apprenticed with Chalfen in her personal studio. After graduating with A BFA from Parsons in May 2009, where Burris was nominated for the Designer of the Year award, her one of a kind hats and made to order ready to wear began to receive attention from the industry. Burris, at only 26 years of age, has become increasingly well known for her intricate feather and couture handwork with leather and exotics. She currently resides in the Lower East Side of New York City. 

Burris has received ongoing support from the industry over the course of the brand’s first six years. Burris and her designs have been featured in top publications including The New York Times, Vogue, Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Interview, Town and Country, Teen Vogue, Vanity Fair, Vogue Italia, and W. Burris counts major celebrities such as Rihanna, Angelina Jolie, and Lady Gaga as fans and regularly works with stylists Karl Templer, Patti Wilson, and Kate Lanphear. Burris has, since the inception of her label, received numerous accolades from the industry. In 2009, the young milliners first year, she was featured in Vogue Italia’s “Young Talents” issue. Burris soon after was named one of the world’s most promising accessory designers to watch worldwide by Harpers Bazaar. Forbes most recently listed Burris alongside industry heavyweights such as Alexander Wang on the publications 30 Under 30 List in January of 2013.

Tech Dinosaurs

By Larry Chiang  Tired of being called a Dinosaur?! First, lets define dinosaur. A person who self-labels as a person who isn’t tech savvy and seems antiquated.

Larry Chiang Sees Your Hail Mary Effort in Silicon Valley. And laughs

August 25, 2014

By Larry Chiang NYSE did it here first. The NYSE tossed a Hail Mary by opening up a first site here. It was the “first major office” outside of NYC according to BizJournals.com. Few here even know that it’s across from WSGR. It looks like it’s getting mothballed right now? Since then, so many companies […]
