L’artiste: Thomas Lamadieu (Sky Art)

30 Apr

I adore different mediums of art. The illustrations below are sick! The rad mix of line drawings and skyscrapers are awesome! French artist Thomas Lamadieu used the confined spaces of rooftops and tiny slices of sky to create some pretty AH-mazing imagery. He’s brilliant! Check out more of Ladmadieu’s art work here

TREND ALERT! Metallic Shoes Ladies & Gents

29 Apr

Metallic shoes are HOT HOT HOT, on the streets of fashion. This trend is not restricted to just gold and silver colors. Any style. Any shoe. Any metallic color will do. It’s all about the shine at your feet. I haven’t officially embraced the shiny trend but I do find some these styles below kind of fetching. What do you think? Yay or Nay? Will you be rocking the “metallic shoe” trend?

Big Spender Vs. Penny Pincher

26 Apr

I’m loving this Marc Jacobs – 1984 satchel bag. At the moment I don’t have an extra $1500 lying around to purchase a new handbag. So, I did a little research on new favorite site (Etsy) and found a similar less expensive bag. It’s a 60’s vintage frame bag. It doesn’t have the designer name but it sure has that lovely classic style. I present to you a new series on my blog called – BIG SPENDER Vs. PENNY PINCHER. Which bag do you prefer.

Goodwill Haul: MOSCHINO, GAP, VANS…. OH MY!

20 Apr

I spent the afternoon scouring thrift stores for something special. I was on the hunt for some amazing vintage, rock band t-shirts. I’ve been dreaming about rocking a rad Kiss t-shirt with my sweet new Nike Dunk Sky High Sneakers.  I didn’t have much luck at my first two stops but turns out the third stop was a charm. I scored an awesome authentic MOSCHINO t-shirt for $1.50. A gorgeous olive-green leather (GAP) skirt for $3.50. And last but not least, a fun pair of Hawaiian print VANS for $5.50. Bringing my grand total to $10.50.  I’m so pumped over all my thrift-scores today! My favorite is probably the MOSCHINO t-shirt. This t-shirt has date night written all over it. Heeeeeyyyyyyyy……
