you turned your back upon her, one too many times

Hedi Slimane photos

Hedi Slimane is one of the greatest photographers/designers of our time. He designed for Dior Homme for a number of years and his photos of various rock stars from Pete Doherty to Alex Kapranos have become iconic. The diary on his website is updated a few times a month, and earlier this month, Slimane photographed Frances Bean Cobain. The one and only daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain, these photographs show the fragility and maturity of a young 18 year old Cobain. View the rest of the photos here.

la belle et la bête

Music: "All Die Young" by The Smith Westerns

SO excited for Alexa Chung's new Madewell collection! This very rad lookbook video filmed in Austin (one of my absolute favorite cities) displays Miss Chung in an array of different looks from her upcoming collection. Some of my favorites: the adorable red beanie, super cool palm tree printed pants and the gorgeous golden lace top. Not to mention that kick-ass cape! 

The collection will be available at Madewell stores and online SEPTEMBER 22.

FYI: if the video doesn't show watch it here

chelsea dagger

Gucci 'Stormboots'; Penelope Chilvers 'Red Cubana'; Topshop 'Maccoy'; Topshop 'Ascott'; Topshop 'Paddington'

Every fall there is a new 'it' boot. Last fall was the combat boot. The fall before was the 'over the knee' boot. This season, it's all about Chelsea. The chelsea boot, which used to be exclusively for that British rock n rolla boy, now has its own cool, feminine update. Topshop definitely has the best selection, in my opinion, for chelsea boots. Which kind of makes sense since they are a British company that's all about the "British" look. I can't wait to get my hands on a pair of those zebra print.

whatever happened, to my rock and roll?

Marc by Marc Jacobs necklace

I get compliments on this necklace almost every day I wear it to work. Functional and so kick-ass. I bought it almost three years ago so obviously it's not available anymore, but I think it's important to find those few pieces that are truly unique and invest in them. What makes this little necklace even more important to me is that it seems to be an exact replica of my 1974 re-issued Fender Telecaster Deluxe. Lots of love for such a tiny necklace.

That's so punny!

Offensive, blasphemous, rude, crude, disturbing.....awesome. All these shirts are by the brand UNIF and all are almost impossible to find! I've managed to capture a few of them, and boy do I wear them out. I have the Offendid shirt and the stares and glares I get when I wear it are priceless. They do announce when they will be having pre-sales and re-stocking, which is helpful, and anything you post on their facebook page will get a response, including where to buy. 

Here's their facebook (start liking!):

I'm a (sur)realist....

I think it may have been Adrien Brody as Salvador Dali in Midnight in Paris that has me all into surrealism now....well....more like into Salvador Dali. Anyways, found this insane clock online for only $20! Also found this super cool necklace on the Salvador Dali museum website. Bit pricier at $135, but kick-ass nonetheless.

find the clock at the Urban Outfitters website...ONLINE ONLY!
