i've got a serious girl crush on st. vincent. so when she walked in to weather up on friday, where i was happily sippin a fancypants cocktail (worth every penny of those nine dollars), i pretty much went weak in the knees. that little pixie is just as adorable in real life as i'd hoped, and i couldn't help but sneak continuous glances at her crazy puffball hair and covetable outfit which included a vintage scarf, a hi-waisted skirt, and perfectly worn-in granny boots. her new album, which you should absolutely get when it comes out tomorrow, is a dark, beautiful mess of melody and strings and swoon-worthy vocals. in the meantime, peep the video of the first single below. as far as i'm concerned you can close your eyes during the frames she's not in.
