fancy sexy you

Jewelry is my all-time favorite accessory. It could be because I've grown up in the business, or it could be becuase I'm born to be damn hardcore and blinged. I'm going to go with the latter. FancySexyMe is freakin' bad ass- just the way I like it. Imagine these pieces layered over ruffled dresses, mini-skirts, and lace leggings. Are you drooling yet? I am. That's why I need to stop typing before I break my keyboard.


Follow FancySexyMe (even the name is fabulous) on Twitter, and check out their website for ridic rings, bracelets, necklaces, even men's jewelry. Tell me what you think once you look around a tad.

"being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. making money is art & working is art & good business is the best art."

If you read this post, you know my appreciation for the 1960's and 70's, and what they did for the fashion and music world. A infinitely large part of that world was a man named Andy Warhol. Most people know the name, some know him for his banana illustration fronting the Velvet Underground and Nico album, some just recall his strikingly white hair.


For those that want to know more about the man (who doesn't? I, for one, am endlessly fascinated by him; he is the center point to the large collage in my bedroom), The Autobiography and Sex Life of Andy Warhol is being re-released at the end of the month. Originally published in 1971 by John Wilcock (more on him later), the new edition corrects the errors of the copy, and was redesigned in a Warholian style.


John Wilcock co-founded Interview magazine with Mr. Warhol (one of my favorite publications and hands-down the best source for inspirational images) in 1969, so who better to interview all of Andy's cohorts and connections to create an incredibly thorough book about him?

I'll leave you to find out more about the book at the website and Facebook page.

This would just be 4 colored boxes of the same photo if it wasn't for Andy Warhol and Pop Art...

push it baby one more time

I first excitedly posted about Push magazine about a year ago, and here I am, a year later, still thrilled and impressed with it! As the editors say themselves, the issue (their second) is dedicated to the many fashionable ways we protect and defend ourselves, and how in this day and age we are all defenders! From blocking people on Facebook, to screening calls and blog commentary and double-locking our doors, who are you defending yourself from? 
All covers have been shot by photographer Frank Berlin, featuring clothing by Alexander McQueen, Maison Martin Margiela and Bottega Veneta.

dying

I spontaneously decided to go on a tie-dye rampage and dye a tunic and pair of jeans. Both turned out fantastically- I'm so excited I didn't screw anything up, other than the surface of the bath tub. Whoops. 

This To Dye For Hellz Bellz collection was very timely with my tie-dye expedition..and the rest of the fashion industry's. Hellz Bellz never fails to get my approval. It must be that perfect girly/tough and edgy balance that is truly almost impossible to master.
