It's like The Selby meets NY Social Diary.

i'd hate to drop a lot on an outfit only to remove it mid-party.

Kel said...

okay I'm officially 'old.' I don't remember parties like that back in the day.

So where might we get a peek at the lovely Decorno herself? :)

Maison Luxe said...

nice find. I'm so glad that when I was in my 20s it wasn't cool to lift my shirt for the camera or pose in undies.

Everyone is wrong. This is what happens when hipsters turn 30, but want to be 23. These are not 23 year olds, just 30 year olds really, really desperate for attention.

Everyone pay attention to mmmeeee!!

Also, let these photos serve as a warning to all young adults. This is what happens when you read more magazines than books, and when you pay attention to advertisements more than articles.

Welcome to the end of culture, and the product of existentialist crap French philosophy.

Wow. I'm really boring.

Jules said...

Is American Apparel selling sex toys now? Otherwise, I don't really get advertisement at the top of the first link. Then again, it is Dov Charney.

Either way, I'm old. Even in my 20s I was really, really old.

Decs,

This post is making all your readers feel defensive. (Especially poor Chase.)

The problem is that this kind of stuff is so mainstream; the corporate entities out there telling you that getting naked and posing for provocative photos is a cool, subversive, alternative, punk thing to do (SuicideGirls, MySpace, Girls Gone Wild, American Apparel, etc.)

Encouraging “amateur, regular girls” to submit photos to be displayed reflecting a culture that if your image is selected you’ve been somehow validated as a member of the in-crowd.

There are always young women out there who mold themselves to fit that formula who happily sign up to display themselves. They’re all living the hot mess life: partying constantly, smoking, drinking to excess, seemingly just waiting in a sparsely-furnished, slightly-rumpled bedroom for some dude to come save them from themselves.

Of course the irony is that the young women think they are doing something "empowering," rather the corporate, misogynistic, patriarchy is running this show.

The people at that "Last Night's Party" sight look pretty tame to me..They're not actually doing anything that debauched or wild except flashing their boobs & trying desparately to look as if they are jaded. Actually it seems like most of them are semi-sober & kinda bored. I have to say, I am really glad I grew up in the '80s when there was real debauchery at clubs.

I love how everyone is struggling to find some unhappiness here: "They CAN'T be having that much fun. They don't read books! They live in small apartments! They're victims of French philosophy! No, of capitalism!"

Decorno, you really know how to stir it up! you rule!
and sue bee honey is right, except that this type of thing has been going on for a long long time, it's just that the media wasn't as sophisticated when halston and bianca jagger got fucked up. that one difference is that kids now seem to crave the media exposure as the main component to their having a good time. it certainly doesn't look as wild, or it's at least just as wild as when I was growing up, but without the lights camera and action. oh, and it did take me a very long time to grow up - chase, but I don't believe that just because you get older that you should just pack it in and start knitting - you just have to stay in shape. not that knitting is boring, you subversive crafters. as a matter of fact, I'm going right back to knitting my sex toy tote bag right now : )

I am soo sick of seeing these sites. Is it not possible to go out for a night of fun without posting it all over the internet so everyone can see how cool you were last Friday?

What I find amusing is the whole "zomg we are having SO fun as we, uh, take still life photos 'n stuff".
P.S. I read 'Where the Wild Things Are' to my 4 year old last night. It was a BIG party.

Classy. Cocaine is a hellava drug.

Aren't they having a gay ol' time? Anyone else annoyed by this faux-lesbo thing going around? Yeah, I kissed a girl before too but didn't document it for the world to see.

I hate this site. Girls just get so wasted and will do anything to show up on the internet the next day. Its just disgusting. I must say some of the photographs are great but the people in them suck.
