SHARP

Conservative office employees pay attention...



This is how you do "covered up" with style [and a nod to the 70's].
Silk blouses, hip skimming wide leg trousers and sharp jackets all complements of the Chole Fall 2010 Ad Campaign.

NEW ONLINE SNEAKER SHOP FOR THE LADIES

Last week I posted an article about a new sportswear store for women opening up in Finland. Today their online store, b-elles.fi/store, is open and it's selection does not disappoint. Especially in the Jeremy Scott category.




These are my favorite two pieces in the whole store. I love all the wacky colors and winged styles, but when it comes down to it, I drop coin on pieces that are completely wearable and work into the rest of my wardrobe.

HOOD TO GO

INSPIRATION BEHIND A NEW STYLE I'M DESIGNING

bElles

Loosely translated bElles means 'beautiful girls' in French. To the founders of the bElles boutique, the title is short for  "Baskets for Elles" meaning sneakers for girls in French.


bElles shares space with it's sister store Dandy, a hair salon and super smart business partnering.



All five owners [i think]

 Definitely two of the owners : )



Did you see that JS bustier? Yea, with that I'm taking this boutique very seriously and can't wait for the online store to open [since i have no plans to travel to Helsinki, Finland which is where the store is located]. In the meanwhile we can stay up with the BElles blog. Learn more about the boutique at SF.

THE SOUND TRACK TO MY CREATIVITY


"Do you know your girlfriend is a bird?"

Incontrary to the reviews, I think My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is incredible!!!
I'm enjoying everything from his word play, to choice of featured artists, right down to the art direction.

NICE HAIR... NICE TATS


 I love that chest tats on women are becoming more and more common. The lady up top develops a retro look with a uneven curled script, font bump, flipped up hair and red lipstick, while homegirl down below creates a young playful vibe with cupcake illustrations, red hair and a loose graphic tee.
