Borrowing a line from Vampire Weekend, another posting to add to yesterdays. Necklaces with charms made from discarded bullet casings. To quote young designer Lovetta Conto “I thought if I could take something that caused so much pain and destruction and melt it down into something beautiful, I would be showing that transformation is possible.” Again, shopping with a cause – all profits going to Strongheart Fellowship Program.
I’m kind of in love with this ring. Coming from a family who hunt – though after my one kill, I was sworn off for life - it’s about as close as I get now a days to actually pulling the trigger.

Kim is a very dear friend of mine and a continuous muse. Her whole apparel philosophy is creative but not crazy, mixing the high end with the low brow. Which is kind of how she is in real life, we’ll chow down on philly steaks one day and then only sip $24 cocktails the next. She is an advocate of mixing it up – vintage YSL with Topshop, little boy blazers with beautiful feminine silk pants. Constantly changing it up, keeping everything fresh. Here is the interview that L Magazine did with her from the series The Fashionable Bystander shot by Crystal Gwyn. Who I talked about here.
I’m a little challenged as to how to incorporate this video so it links automatically…so in the mean time click HERE to hear her fashion formula.
A friend of mine posted this on my FB page yesterday – aside from being the perfect Sunday afternoon track, it has my name in the refrain. A song for me…Kelly Reid, I wonder who she/he was?
This must be heart a photographer week…some of my favourite images from Hedi Slimane.
This image of Jamie is around the blogs at the moment, but I had to repostThe combination of her strong back and spinal tattoo are beautiful to me.Such a sucker for long locks – Kirby and AnnThe eyes have it
I’m kind of fascinated by hands, since they are more difficult to disguise in terms of wear and tear they tell so much about the owner. Being someone who uses toxic glue, who sews on industrial machines and serves cocktails on the weekend. Mine say more than I’d like -like, girrrrl, get a manicure.These hands in particular belong to M. Pierre BergéAmber, who is just as striking in real life
Wish I’d been on this train!
