Leave Eh-furry-where.

river island fur bag
I’m quite fascinated by this color explosion of fur & leather.  Pair this with an all black get-up & let the bag do all the talking.

(River Island)

Such a fan of this single from a few years back.  Not quite what you’d expect from Toro Y Moi, based off their latest releases.  Guess that’s why I love it so.

I Think, I Want To Be Pretty In Pink.

Times they are a changing.  My tomboy tendencies had always ‘nay-sayed’ anything 
leopard & downright ‘despised’ the color pink.  Yet, over the years I have slowly dabbled in wearing spots. First shoes, then handbags, now wanting coats!  My, how quickly we landslide.  So now, at this very moment, I eat my words as I renounce my distaste of  the color that I so quickly associated with fussy, prissy, complicated, and girly.  Pepto Bismal Pink as I call it, is looking real good, real edgy, and making me rethink my hair color (wow, did I really just say that?). Never say never kids.

Ok, loved the movie back then, but still disliked the actual color.  Not going to play the obvious track here…going to play one of my other favorite tunes from this soundtrack.

Shear ‘Nuff, Yes I do.

Nov 18th, 2013 Posted in Fashion/Music | No Comments »

Somehow I didn’t know that I needed an oversize shearling pullover with enormous pouch pocket until now.

(Organic by John Patrick)

Love myself some Captain Beefheart.  This album rules.

Vive Le Croc.

I’m a firm believer that forest green leather & chocolate croc skin are the ultimate luxe combo.

(Clare Vivier)

White face paint & admiral coats are never a bad combo either.

IM Forever.

Isabel Marant is the one designer that always seems to hit the nail on the head in terms of what I want to wear now.  Simple, chic, and oh so perfect French tomboy.  Some of my favorite looks from her Resort 2014 collection that solidify my forever fandom-ness.  I mean seriously, this cropped metallic trouser look is perfect.  IM 4-EVER!

Ya know what they say…families are forever.  And have also been known to play together too.  Love this sis trio.

Here Comes The Spot Stepper.

Don’t know about you, but lately I’ve been attracted to all things leopard…especially for my feet.  These lil’ slip-on sneakers are hitting the spot, and I’d gladly sport either of the color options.

Word up lyrical gangsters…classic dance jam, am I right?

Feels Like We Only Go Black-wards.

Jul 8th, 2013 Posted in Fashion/Music | No Comments »

It’s Summer I know, and color/ prints are everywhere. Yet, I can’t help but gravitate towards these pieces, that I wish were in my closet so that I could wear them tomorrow & they all happen to be BLACK:
1. Kate Spade Saturday – Apron Top
2. Top Shop – Leather A-Line Skirt
3. Birkenstock – Arizona in all black 

A serious Summer album staple that your musical wardrobe should not be without.

L-S-D.  Not the abbreviation for the hallucinogenic…It stands for ‘Little Summer Dress’.  Just purchased this St. Barts dress (in black of course) by 9 Seed recently & have been living in it on these balmy L.A. weekends.  Lightweight cotton gauze, in the perfect length, and cut that allows for letting the ladies go rogue, if ya know what I mean.  Bonus points: can be tucked into your denim cut-offs to create the perfect summer tank!

Eye Follow You.

May 9th, 2013 Posted in Fashion/Music | No Comments »

The need for ‘white’ anything that is clothing, handbag, & shoe related, is slowly taking over.  So why not start with this gorgeous leather bucket bag with hand embroidered eye art detail.   

(Wendy Nichol)

This album has been on heavy rotation.  French singer Melody Prochet delivers that perfect 6o’s pop psych sound with a modern twist.  Get it & fall in love.

Short Shot.

Inspired to wear shorts again after a glance at the All Saints S/S 13 lookbook.  A little length can go a long way in terms of style.

This song is nearly 20 years old….still sounds as good as the day I first had a listen.
