Rethinking earrings again.  Especially these oversized, oxide blue, hand-cut metal earrings.  Made in Los Angeles by the talented jewelry designer, Annie Costello Brown.

If you’re into easy listening & Velvet Underground-ish sounds then give this male duo a spin.  It won’t give you the blues.  Promise.

Jung American.

jungmaven hemp shirt

For the environmentally conscious, stripe addict, please forward your attention to Jungmaven.  Not only do they make sweet pieces likes this (which I plan on nabbing), the carbon-print friendly range is made up of colorful tees in all lengths & a dress or two for the ladies.  All products are either mostly made up, of or contain 100% hemp & created in the U.S.of A.  So get out there kids &  take pride in Uhmerrica…for reals.

Oh, & be sure to check out the site in regards to hemp and all the goodness that it is. Plus, it’s that back pocket trivia will come in handy when someone compliments you wearing this on the street.

Get it here Jungmaven

Wouldn’t mind this leather wrap skirt round my waist.  Leave it to Madewell to come up with the goods.

Golding Out.

baggu_gold
Simple design is all ya need for flashy gold leather.  Makes total sense to me.

(Penelopes)

hospitality_trouble
With a name like Hospitality, one would hope that they’d sound as sweet as the moniker…and they do. Lil’ dark flavor on this pop track is so good.

plaid_creaturesofcomfort
Plaid is looking real good by way of oversized jackets, cropped trousers, & (oh yes!) pencil skirts.  Feeling this collection of nineties re-incarnate with a bit more sophistication.  

(Creatures of Comfort)

James_Laid
And what better way to add to the true 90’s flavor than the dress wearing, single syllable word screeching band, James.

Rachel Antenoff
For that cheeky, snarky, boy-crazed, teenager trapped inside your middle-aged body.  This is like, OMG totally, perfect!

joe_jackson_look_sharp
One of the classiest, crush worthy, male pop singers to come out of the 80’s.

As much as I love my wiry thin rings as of late, these multi-stone rings shown at the F/W14 Proenza Schouler show have got me rethinking all things bold again…the clutches aren’t that bad either.

Can’t afford all those Celine pieces to freshen up your Spring wardrobe…yah, me neither.  I’d gladly settle for these D-ring inspired pieces instead.

2. Acne Pop Vintage Denim
3. Patchwork denim bag by Topshop
