And so it begins…

I do apologize for the lack of posts!
Life has finally managed to sort itself out
and it looks like this fall is going to be a wild and crazy roller-coaster ride.

While there is a small part of me that is anxious,
I am also incredibly excited!
Back to work,
and back to school.
Now to find a cool boy-face
and then I am set.

you have to love, love.

’m not one for beat poetry,
but these words resonate with me.

“I’m not Tom Ford in terms of the grooming and the knowledge of clothes and the precision and perfection of getting dressed. There’s nothing I can wear in this ad that isn’t going to look ridiculous. At one point, I tried jeans and a shirt, and it didn’t work. So then Juergen said, “Take off the clothes.” So I did, and that became the ad.” “I did feel good about the way I looked, so it was easy and—well, a guy looks better to me with no clothes on than with clothes! How’s that?”

Calling all fashionable men, friends and lovers.
Philip Sparks Summer Sale begins this weekend, and you’d be a fool not to take full advantage of this event.

Now go forth,
spend some cash
and feel damned good doing it!

Muse: Iris Apfel, style icon.

so much LOVE.

gimme: The American Apparel 3D flower mesh jumper

now. stat.
in both white and black.
If there is someone out there,
in the American Apparel kingdom
that can bestow this lovely gem upon me,
I’d be forever in your debt.

And I’ll stop hating on you guys,

Fake London

For all those who know me,
I am very much a 90′s baby.
Spent much of my angsty youth
feeding heavily on NME, DAZED and battered copies of The Face
Stomping about the desert in
leather, lace, denim and OTT Doc Martens.

So as you can imagine I was really quite pleased to find out that Fake London, once championed by the Oasis boys, Robbie Williams and the All Saints femmes,  were relaunching this  Autumn/Winter season and riding the 90′s come back wave for all it’s worth.  After a three year hiatus, founder Desiree Mejer, will be showing the latest collection during London Fashion Week, and I am thrilled to note that the design team is staying true to the very quirky and archetypal British punk heritage of the brand.

Tweed, cashmere
chunky knits, links
camel coats, military details
Union Jacks and chains.
What more could a pretty grunge princess ask for?
Now if only they’d remake the famous Liam Gallagher parka.
