paris in the springtime

Prada, Nicolas Andreas Taralis, Dries Van Noten, Rochas, Mugler

Some of my favorite looks from Paris Fashion Week, trying to avoid the obvious Chanel and Louis Vuitton. I decided to show more of the brands you might not know. Again, might. I was loving the shoes at Prada, shoes and socks are something I kind of adore, at least when done right. Then it was all plaids and flowers at Dries Van Noten, which has a special 90s place in my heart. At Mugler too, some favorite staples of mine: crop tops and leather, but definitely done in a different way. Some pretty amazing looks for next Spring.

bad acid sucks

So a new brainchild from the fool behind UNIF is here, it's Bad Acid Sucks. The 'about' page and 'blog' page are pretty funny. In a sick, twisted kind of way, so it's not for the faint of heart. Even more insane are the shirts they have for sale. Reminiscent of Motorhead, Rolling Stones and even Beavis and Butthead, they are clever, offensive and catchy, just like UNIF. Really didn't expect anything less, and the t-shirts are considerably cheaper, $42 each. Now go take some bad acid.

I don't know if I mentioned this, but a few weeks ago I bought the UNIF "Hellseeker." It was a bit of an investment, but I'm crazy over these shoes. And these shoes are crazy. We were made for each other. Be advised that if you were thinking about buying them, size up. Unless you want to walk around with your feet killing you until they stretch out. They do stretch out, it just takes a while.

red eyes and tears

Some new Jeffrey Campbell boots I bought from Solestruck a few weeks ago. The "Arizona" boot (perhaps after Arizona Muse?) are extremely uncomfortable. I'm gonna be completely honest with you about that, but I put on a few bandaids, make sure I'm not walking too much, and prepare myself to look kick-ass.

Muse Monday: Nico


This week's muse is German model and songstress Nico. While you may think you've never heard about her, think again. One of Andy Warhol's original Muses, Nico sang main and back-up vocals for band The Velvet Underground and their legendary album The Velvet Underground and Nico. With friends like Bob Dylan, Brian Jones and Jimmy Page, Nico definitely became a big part of the music scene and followed The Velvet Underground project with a solo career. While she did have an untimely death, it definitely immortalized Nico as a bohemian songstress who will never be forgotten.

Breadcrumb trail

Now that I am the new author of le rebelle doux, I will be posting more of men street style photos. Here is the first flow of well-dressed gentlemen from NY and London. I think these looks are pretty classic, yet they include some of the latest trends: prints, plaids and monochrome. Stay tuned for more men street style!

P. S. Note the guy on the first photo is wearing pieces from J.W. Anderson for Topshop collection, the post of which we did earlier. Even though it's supposedly for women, he is totally rocking it! So guys don't be afraid to experiment with your style, and, honestly, if you are confident in yourself, you can put a sheet over your head and still look incroyable.

Happy Birthday Sheebanna!

Lana Del Rey X H&M

So H&M finally released their Fall lookbook starring Lana Del Rey. Not only that, they also released a special 2 minute music video of Del Rey singing "Blue Velvet." The clothes and overall style of the shoot is more retro with a 20s to 50s vibe, which also comes across in the music video.

View the entire collection and watch the music video HERE.

Lookbook: Malheur

Solestruck is out with a new Fall/Winter lookbook entitled Malheur. It's kind of awesome, with a dash of rad and several cups of weird. Plenty of crimped hair, bejeweled eyebrows, bones and crazy headpieces. It's pretty awesome just because it truly is for inspiration: the weird recording, the night to day aspect as well as the weird way the models move about, as if they're ghosts. It's all brilliantly awesome, and dedicate the next 3 minutes and 10 seconds to it.

Anarchy in the UK (NYC)

If you like museums, art exhibitions or free drinks that are usually served there, you probably know that Metropolitan Museum in NYC has an annual fashion exhibition. While last exhibitions were dedicated to Alexander McQueen and Miuchi Prada, this year’s is gonna be totally kick-ass! Literally! It’s called Punk: Chaos to Couture, and the main theme is obviously punk and it’s influence on fashion. The exposition will include punk-inspired looks from famous designers such as Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs and, of course, Vivienne Westwood, who first brought punk to fashion. The themes of exhibition are DIY Style, Rebel Heroes, La mode Destroy and Punk Couture.

The exhibition will open 9th of May.

Muse Monday: Charlotte Kemp Muhl


This week's Muse is the incredibly gorgeous Charlotte Kemp Muhl. A model and musician mainly, Kemp garnered fame for her beautiful, natural looks and vintage style. She also gained the attention of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's only son Sean Lennon, whom is also her band mate in the band Ghost Of A Sabertooth Tiger. The band is like a dreamy, Native American soundtrack, sometimes ethereal and always randomly romantic. Kemp is also one of the main faces of Maybelline, so you've probably seen her in numerous TV and magazine ads. She's also modeled for Tommy Hilfiger, Swarovski and Donna Karan. Always in the front rows of Paris Fashion Week, the Georgia native has a closet full of vintage and is always featured in a magazines. Her other band Kemp & Eden has their debut record releasing  this fall, so you're sure to hear more about her. Kemp's dreamy looks, effortless style and musical talents is why she's this week's Muse.

NYFW Street Style pt. 2

So really cool accessories from New York Fashion Week! So NYFW has ended, and right on time, London Fashion Week has started. Excited to see Christopher Kane above everything else. Something I've been seeing a lot (and I mean A LOT) lately are round sunglasses with insane details to them. Not your average John Lennon sunglasses. Like the last picture, although those must be vintage because I've never seen anything quite like them. I think I may need to do another new trend post....

i wanna party like it's 1999

Several photos from the past two weeks including some insane hologram sunglasses I scored on ebay, some even more rad vintage Bill Blass and Armani I scored at Goodwill, a pile of clothes on my bed while I was trying to decide what to wear on labor day (I had to remind myself it's not 1972), a sign at Space 15 Twenty and some nail art from the awesome ladies at Kleur. I booked an appointment with Kleur at their Space 15 Twenty location and paid $45 for this manicure set. Honestly, I think it's totally worth it. They normally charge $35, but I wanted a special set that cost more. It's awesome. I can't stop staring at my nails. And as I type this, my heart breaks a little at the thought that they typing will slowly chip away at the polish. Good thing I already booked my next appointment.
