When I say I'm in luv, you best believe I'm in luv

Drool... Among the many words of wisdom my mom passed on to me, one of the most important lessons she has taught me is: "Never wear fake leather."

White leather moto jacket by Diesel

New York Dolls denim mini skirt by Hysteric Glamour


I'm so happy that Phillip Lim definitely kicked it up a notch with this collection. I screamed and got so excited with the mod gang. How do you think I would look as a mod? Oh, that hair reminds me of this super mod girl I saw last year at the (I)NC show. She had that hair (in true black, and was dressed super mod). Love mod. I tried the mod look several years ago and it didn't quite work...

Why won't you wear your new trench coat

Who is this guy? Why is he so perfectly dressed? How is he so naturally stylish? Currently obsessed with Harper's Bazaar Accessories Editor: David. Sigh. Incredible fashion sense.

I haven't forgot any words that you said

I just stare at the clocks
and I cry in my sleep
and I tear up your letters
and burn them in heaps.

Hey little world

These men get an A+ for their sense of style. Wow....

The other thing I love about NY fashion week is the Sartorialist for style.com. I get so excited to see the stylish.

Rockabilly Ladies

NY Fashion Week is in full swing. I've been following it via Style.com. Nothing really exciting yet. Except I am loving the DKNY collection. They have been consistently doing beautiful collections that are right up my alley and I would totally wear. Maybe it's because it's always somewhat rock&roll-ish. They've done hippie-pyschedlic 60s and 70s last few seasons. This season, it's a very refined, polished, rockabilly look. Love.

What can I get for ten dollar

My friends and I have been M.I.A fans since the start. We've been following her for years now so to me, it was not at all shocking, when she came out like that at the Grammys. Not only was I not shocked, I knew her dress was by Henry Holland. I'm pretty sure all the fashion obsessed knew that one thanks to Agyness rocking it. Anyways, I kind of feel weird about "Paper Planes" getting such mass appeal. Personally, I love Galang better. Bucky Done Gun and Ten Dollar was my omg we have to dance song. Memories of years ago when this album was totally hot and they played it at the downtown warehouse parties full of artsy fartsy's. Good times. This video still effing rocks. And I like Boyz, too.

My arms get cold in February air

It's supposed to rain tomorrow and onto next week. It's been raining quite a bit here in LA, for LA. It's all good though. I have decided to embrace it. Weekend plans include staying in, listening to and smelling the rain, while drinking hot tea, and working in my studio. I'm still excited about Spring and eagerly await warmer weather.

I've done my division

I've been in the sh*ttiest moods lately. Can't, won't get into detail about what's bothering me. Days like this I just want to play Blood Brothers "Trash Flavored Trash" on full blast. Omg, who else misses The Blood Brothers? So amazing. I love them. I saw them long time ago at the Roxy...

Just so we're straight and you don't get the wrong impression

Don't need a silly little overdue confession

I've listened to this song so many times but I'm still not sick of it. And there's a bittersweet little memory about the first time I heard this song and where I was and... ;) Anyways, I listen to this song way too many times. Still love it forever.
Lyrics and beat are amazing. Oh, and their style too.

I'm a human fly

I love the song "Human Fly" by The Cramps. Lux Interior, frontman of The Cramps, passed away on Wednesday at the Glendale Memorial Hospital. He was only 60. :( A lot of the amazing frontmen and rockers today definitely did a lot of studying Mr. Lux's crazy stage antics. He was a true original. :(

The Tom Binns anarchy bracelet makes me drool, and wonder. Considering the super high price tag, I wonder if any true punk rocker would ever even buy that. It's kind of ironic, but then again, that's what makes Tom Binns' designs brilliant?

Needles and pins

I tried on the Zara Balmain knock-off shoes. I have to give it to them. They really did do an excellent job of it. Well made. It's no Balmain, but, come on. Needless to say, they did not look good on me because I really don't rock that look. I'm addicted to tough boots.
