I watched In Time the other day starring Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, and Cillian Murphy,and the movie was good, but I was really into the fashion. Who ever was the costume designer for the film, picked some really great pieces. Everything that Amanda Seyfried wore were very classic silhouettes. I also loved what the time watchers wore, a.k.a Cillian Murphy’s character and all of his associates.
Oh my gosh has the weather been weird in L.A. I am convinced that somehow I have been relocated to Portland with how the weather has been acting. I will admit I am enjoying the rainy with a hint of sunshine weather.
I realize it has been almost too long since my last post, but I finally made it back home, and I have been consumed with all things busy. It is kind of nice to get back to my routine, even though some hiccups have arisen. Also I dyed my hair, if you haven’t noticed ahaha. I am really digging it. With all this weird weather, I am actually happy that it is still tights season. I am trying to get back into shape for summer, but it is taking a lot of discipline, one of the many things that is keeping busy. Luckily I like Yoga and it is good for my condition. WIN!

Do I even need to explain why he is a style icon? I have always been obsessed with the 60′s, and Jimi Hendrix brings this era to mind like no other. Most men don’t pull of color, but power to Hendrix for making it look freaking amazing. Plus all the velvets, fur detailing, beautiful patterns, and his awesome hair. Gah it seriously makes me die a little inside just thinking what a shame such a talented soul passed away at such young age.
In a few of my previous entries I have expressed my love for this band. They have been around for quite sometime and have gone through their fair share of new members over the years, but their music is like nirvana to me. It is a mix of indie, rock, and psychedelic pop, which basically makes for some amazing and intense melodies. Along with their eclectic and unusual music, their style fits in quite well. Kurt Cobain meets Jimmy Hendrix and runs along a hindu temple would describe their style, or at least that is what I have gotten from it. It brings me back to Portland actually, with a lot of draping, unusual patterns, chunky sweaters, wool socks, and an array of boots. If I could frame them up into two words Pretty Grunge would be best. Enjoy.
Fashion’s latest trend, has made me giddy with excitement. My fondest memory of maxi skirts was when I was a little girl, and my style was a mix of what my mother wore and Native American. Family friends would buy me exotic things from all over the world, and my father especially would buy me one of a kind pieces from New Mexican Pueblo’s. I could just kick myself for not saving everything I had when I was younger, but what can I expect when I was a child and most of those things wouldn’t even fit me anyways. Back on track, maxi skirts were a particular in my wardrobe as a kid, and usually paired with moccasins. Now I can finally touch back to my childhood roots, and feel like a free spirit in the maxi skirt again.
A few days ago I decided to drive down to L.A. after my very relaxing trip from Oregon. I felt it was time for some good father daughter bonding after being apart for four months. I only stayed in the hectic city for a few days, but I was able to get some quick snapshots of the city as well as enjoy the beautiful weather. As an L.A native, I found myself quite relaxed in the hustle and bustle and sublime weather, and was able find the time to put together a simple, yet casual L.A appropriate garment. It basically consisted of a vintage red and black maxi skirt from Salvation Army, a black slouchy tank top from Urban Outfitters, and black rubber flip flips from Target; yes, very simple indeed. With Los Angeles, anything casual with a slight edge and ethnic appeal works, because of its cool beach like atmosphere, and slight glamorous, and rockstar edge of Hollywood.
