Sorry for the delay, work has been crazy lately. I’m not sure if it’s because I love the warm weather or because I so desperately need a vacation, but I can’t stop thinking about having fun in the sun. Lacey tops, tees, cut offs, espadrilles, flowers in bloom and bloomers are constantly dancing in my head. Here’s some daydream material until you get your fun in the sun.
Someone cue up Jeezy because “I need a vacation”.

I could go on for days about how Rick Owens inspires me, but instead I’ll just show you some pics.
Yeah. He’s the man.

Kate and Laura Mulleavy have been a huge inspiration to me since the birth of their line Rodarte five years ago. In my opinion, you can’t really be a lover of fashion without loving Rodarte. Born and raised in Pasadena, the Mulleavy sisters’ technique of making beautiful things look ruined has become their signature. Through layering, mixing materials and extravagant knit work, Rodarte has become one of the most creative, beloved brands of the 21st century.
From Febuary 11 to March 14, the Quicktake: Rodarte exhibit took place in NYC @ the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. The exhibit featured past and present pieces in an architectural setting that highlighted the Rodarte design aesthetic.
Of course being that I live in L.A., I always find out about these cool New York events way late. Thank goodness Cooper-Hewitt has a great design blog with a video of the creation of the exhibit and an interview with Kate and Laura. Hope you enjoy.
I went to see Alice in Wonderland last weekend and just as I expected, I loved it. Not only were the special effects incredible, but the costumes were absolutely drool worthy. There has been quite a showing of ‘Alice’ inspired garments and accessories in the fashion world lately and I’m sure we are going to be seeing a lot more.
Isn’t this the cutest waistcoat? It’s made by a company called toki & nabi out of London.
I’ll take one of each and a one-way ticket to Wonderland.

I was watching the new Lonely Island video “Boombox” feat. Julian Casablancas and it got me thinking about how much he has influenced the world with his style. Now Julian hasn’t done it all on his own, when he was a member of The Strokes, they created quite a ruckus in everyday streetwear style. I don’t know about you, but the first time I saw The Strokes I thought to myself, the days of the Velvet Underground- punk dude are back and I love it. I was also thinking that their pants were so tight, I could see their heartbeats (not a bad thing).
Even though each member had their own look, it is Julian’s style that has always inspired me. It could be his perfectly worn leather jackets, his washed out tees, his untamed locks or his gorgeous puppy dog eyes. To me, he represents the ultimate, anti-glam rockstar.
Did I mention he’s hot as hell and talented!
Being that it feels like summer in L.A. today, I’m in the mood for a good summer anthem. Hope you enjoy!
