I skipped the inspiration this past Sunday. It’s good to switch things up a bit. There are so many things that inspire and influence me on a daily basis. Films, music, people, locations, literature, it’s really endless.

Sometimes you get a chance to look back and realize what you should have done. Maybe its time to take a stand. For everything. For nothing at all.

There really is something to be said for the peaceful and serene. Sometimes, I wish I could unplug and sail away to a remote island for a while and just collect my thoughts. For now I’ll just have to settle for a good book and spinning my vinyl on a Sunday afternoon.

Just yesterday I was really missing my blonde hair. Yes, that’s right for the better part of 7 months last year I went blonde. That is until I dyed my hair purple (which still remains). It really is such a process to go from dark hair to other side of the spectrum. I still haven’t found a conditioner that has made my hair fully recover. In an attempt to live vicariously through some of my favorite style icons, here are some blonde tresses I can only hope to have in my dreams.

Italian actress Asia Argento is so badass. Born into a famous film making family she wasted no time getting in front of the camera. She made her first film debut in Sergio Citti’s Sogni e bisogni when she was nine years old, however I first saw her in XxX. Yes, that spy movie with Vin Diesel. I’ll admit it. Since then she’s appeared alongside Michael Pitt in Last Days, and Kirsten Dunst in Marie Antoinette. According to the rumor mill she dated Michael Pitt for a while, unfortunately I couldn’t find any photos of them together.
I happen to love her “don’t give a f—” attitude and her hard girl edge. Very reminiscent of a young Angelina Jolie. If you don’t know her then I hope this inspired all you bad ass girls out there.

There is something so visually striking about Sofia Coppola’s debut film, Virgin Suicides. Paired with an amazing soundtrack and soft focus scenes this film is always an inspiration to me.

the answer to that question is yes. I am a sucker for the nerdy guy, let’s blame Jason Schwartzman and Adam Brody for that one. But come on, who doesn’t love the sweet sensitive guy who can watch “The Notebook” and wax poetic about your favorite indie bands. It’s even better once you find out that they’re in one. He famously drummed for Phantom Planet and now he fronts his own incredible indie band, Coconut Records. Here is one of my favorite videos here:
For all those who aren’t aware of the many talents of Jason Schwartzman then please rent his entire resume starting with Slackers, Marie Antoinette, and Spun. Let’s not forget about that epic “Freaks and Geeks” episode he was in.
Enough about him… let’s have some eye candy!
with Kirsten Dunst
Ahh!! With Jenny Lewis!

This weekend there is so much going on that all I can do to keep from the madness is to look at outfit inspirations. Lately I have been into buying more and more vinyl to round out my record collection but man, I wish that could go shopping again. Soon…Soon..

I have always loved style that is unpredictable. Kirsten Dunst to me has a style that is almost as schizophrenic as my own. One minute her style is inspired by the French, then the next minute she is grunge-tastic. I prefer to categorize her as having an indie approach to the grunge vibe. She seems to draw aspects of vintage style which is a very big part of the indie lifestyle. While these selections may not necessarily be “grunge” these are my favorites.
She appeared on the cover of W Magazine in April 2007 and it is still one of her most beautiful editorials I’ve ever seen. Shot by Craig McDean.
