Seeing Red…

On one of my favorite blogs Violet Pills Inc, I came across this awesome post all based around color. Coincidentally it was named after one of my favorite Pearl Jam songs as well. I’ve decided to follow suit and compose a post here based around a color as well. I’ve been feeling stressed lately so instead of calming myself down I’m adding fuel to the fire so to speak.

Menswear Monday: Matthew Lillard

One of my favorite icons in the 90s was Matthew Lillard. He still is as a matter of fact. From the crazy killer in “Scream” to the blue haired punk in “SLC Punk” he always captured my heart. Why can’t boys look like this again?

Menswear Monday: Filled to the Brim

I admit. I love guys in hats. Beanies, wide brim hats, cop hats, you name it. Hats really do complete the outfit. Over the past 3 years I’ve been wearing more and more hats, even branching out to a brimmed hat that makes me look like Indiana Jones.

Here is a look at some men rockin some hats that are just as diverse as their personalities.

Guys, keep it up.

Tallulah Morton for Complot Argentina…

Complot, a Argentinian based fashion label grabbed Tallulah Morton for their Spring/Summer ’12 campaign. The rebel gone grunge vibe is exactly what I’m down for this right now. Looks like I may be taking a trip to Argentina a little sooner than expected.

Yep…No Introduction Necessary.

Is there really an explanation needed on why I’m posting about Jared Leto again? Nope. This is a fairly old editorial but lets face it, he looks exactly the same right this instant.

Pre-Fall Collection Time!!!

Fall is my favorite season. I hope that we can drag out this L.A. fall/winter season just a bit longer. Today on one of my days off this week I checked out some of my fav pre-fall collections. Next month is fashion week and I can’t wait to see what we are all gonna be bundled up in next fall.

My three favorite collections that I seen so far are Alexander Wang, Helmut Lang, and Diesel Black Gold.

Alexander Wang

-we all by this point know my love for A.Wang. I can however admit when I’m not in love with a collection however, this one is pretty spot on for me. With a nod to menswear tailoring he makes my mouth water yet again. Can we talk about that burnout tribal jacket? Here we go…

Helmut Lang

- I don’t talk too much about Helmut Lang but they are one of my go tos when I think of timeless basics. I have these awesome sweaters and skirts that still have carried me through seasons and seasons so far. Their aesthetic hasn’t changed much but that sorta the fun isnt it?

Diesel Black Gold

- This newish line from Diesel is already being compared to brand by the likes of Acne and Rag and Bone. Diesel has shown real growth and a point of view past their extremely popular denim in the 90s and logo printed t-shirts. This line is worth a second look…

Grunge is not dead.

I for one am torn over this resurgence in the grunge culture.It’s not as underground as it once was but, it is pretty cool to have grown up in the actual era that people are reminiscing about.

 

This month Elle does it again by featuring another editorial that can only prove that this decade isnt going anywhere.
