“My turquoise ring was made and purchased in my hometown…from the very rare star turquoise. I may have the only one of its kind.
The other is a wolf ring purchased in the company of my friend and co-worker kris chau whilst perusing the shops on chestnut st in philadelphia.
The silver buckle-y bracelet was a thrift shop find (also in philadelphia) thanks to the good eye of my friend kim williams.
The leather tooled bracelet and I love america bracelet are both from thrift shops? I think.
And my ribbon/braided bracelets are there because I am constantly wishing for peace on earth and endless love and I decided I needed to make them come true
By placing wishes on material things that will fall off and therefore render my dream true. Though if I just shared my dreams out loud, did I void them? “:(
Surreal, lullingly pleasant, quirky and warm. Were all senses that were provoking the air around me last night.
The night was Vetiver at Johnny Brendas here in Philly.I’ve always been a huge fan of Andy Cabric, I think his voice is something very special and it helps that he can jig around a little with his guitar too!
The evening was magical, especially for a Monday night.
My wandering eye was pinned on this sweet looking folk girl and her beau. How great do they look? I think they must have jumped straight on the bus from Laurel Canyon.
A Perfect folk outfit don’t you think?
As of late rainbow hair has become a massive trend, I’m constantly stumbling upon this craze on the World Wide Web-bloggers are going crazy for it, Stylists and Magazines are crazy over it and moreover I’m CrAzY over it!
It doesn’t help when I sit next to a FP girl here at the office that has a beautiful faded pink strand in her golden hair. Me want and Me like!
If you haven’t seen the Beautiful video on Vogue Australia of Abbey Lee behind the scenes on the Vogue cover photoshoot I suggest you do! click
If you haven’t picked up Dazed and Confused Dec Issue yet in which the Caption States:
“Tie-dye takes over hair in a spirited approach to Autumn/winter’s crazy colours, moving it beyond it’s hippie heritage”
I suggest you do- Styling is done by Katie Shillingford and its ace!
lately i’ve really been loving the work of scotland-based artist fiona watson, using feathers, flowers, and other found items…
these are from her series called “an unwritten book”
“i used to be a scientist but have always been an artist.” – fiona watson
Doesn’t she look Rock ‘N’ Roll!
I love how simple her outfit is. However, considerations were made to make it look super sexy-Thigh high boots and a cluster of jewelry. I’m Lovin layering my jewelry at the moment, the more the merrier I say!
With that in Mind, I have my eyes on these beauties from FreePeople(above)
Isabel Lucas is a girl I admire so much. I love her relaxed approach to fashion, she never looks boring. I find there’s always little touches to her outfits that intrigues me whether it’s a floral scarf, a little pinch of embroidery or a wicked vintage T. She knows how to use fashion to create a style that works for her personality and comfort zone. Above all, she has a great heart. She’s an active volunteer for so many charities that it’s hard to keep track of her. One of her most recent being Sea Shephard.
She’s my favorite muse, I heart her!
today’s tunesday album is a new compilation of old songs, but good songs… the kind that you can still listen to today and enjoy as if they’re brand new. dreamin’ man live ’92 is a collection of songs that make up neil young’s harvest moon album, taken from various acoustic performances in 1992 (the year the album was released). it’s hard to believe harvest moon came out twenty years after the amazing harvest album, and to listen to him sing these songs you wouldn’t think he’d aged a day, if it weren’t for the lyrics, which take on the tone of someone older and wiser. regardless, songs like “dreamin’ man” “harvest moon” “unknown legend” and “you and me” are as beautiful and poignant as ever, especially in this stripped down acoustic form.
take a listen to the song “unknown legend,” one of my faves…
