It’s been so long since I’ve done a proper shopping post. I’m always getting questions on where to buy clothing and suggestions on what I’m loving at the moment. This is right in time for the holidays so whether or not you still have some last minute buying or you want to simply know what my current wishlist is then voila!
It’s no secret that I’m pretty obsessed with Swatch watches. So, when I saw the new Fall collection, these were my favorites. The Circle in a Circle (left) for obvious reasons, it reminds me of days in the 90s when I would watch after school programs in my neon biker shorts and color with day-glo pens. The McPattern (right) just displays all the perfect plaids all in one. What better way to remember the 90s?
As someone who has recently become obsessed with the Vans Sk8 Hi shoes I had to include them. They go with just about anything and are a great change from the all stars and Authentics that I normally wear.
First of all one of my secret obsessions is long sleeved graphic tees. Something that is pretty rare nowadays. When I first saw this shirt from NY label, Obesity & Speed modeled after Henry Rollins’ tattoos I thought, “brilliant”. Available at Deer Dana.
As if they couldn’t make Docs any more cool? Oh wait they just did. I’m seriously obsessed with these. Like to the point of madness. Available at Dr. Martens.
Just because we are in the dead of winter doesn’t mean we can’t still obsess about sunglasses. I discovered this Australian eyewear brand, Hungry just a few months ago and I’m completely amazed at their range. Each frame is so classic and perfectly unisex. I’ve been wearing this pair, The Bold Jacks for months on end with no plans to stop anytime soon.
Cast of Vices has been one of my favorite brands for a while now. Their designs are always so imaginative and just edgy enough to push the boundaries of originality. The ‘coming or going‘ bracelet is a play on the hospital bands that we often overlook but they really are simple with great design features. Gimme.
The bondage pants of the 70s UK punk scene made a bit of a comeback in the 90s thanks to Gwen Stefani. I had a pair of Lip Service ones that were pink, white, and black. I’m also kicking myself that I have no idea where they are now. Oh, well at least there’s eBay.
When my buddy Sedge over at ASOS announced that she had written a book on the ins and outs of Twitter I was super excited. Being a fellow social media junkie and her being a fellow grunge sister I had to check it out. It’s full of some of the best accounts to follow and gives you pointers for navigating the world of Twitter. Available at ASOS.
Photographer Jesse Frohman was the last photographer to shoot Kurt Cobain in a formal photoshoot. We’ve all seen the iconic photos from the last set but he finally released a book this Fall detailing his experiences and sharing unreleased photos and contact sheets. This is probably on the top of my list overall. Available at Amazon.
Hope you enjoyed the selections! What are on some of your must have lists?
