Shopping Fix of the Day

At work reflecting on last nights outing figuring out how to scratch my unavoidable, reoccurring and  insatiable shopping itch.

Two pieces of jewelry stand out in my that looked irritatingly like something I have designed for the last few years and this...the falling whistle. Amazing story and pretty cool looking site.

Since this somewhat feels like a charitable donation I think momma deserves another "you're such a hard worker putting in 10 hours at work on a Sunday present."

Off I go to find another token of self-appreciation.

Reward thyself.

the medium is the message

Haunting and beautiful.

Tinkering with extremes of art and fashion while riding the fine line of androgyny...HAHN-BIN

Am I that simple that style would make me start paying attention to classical music. YES OF COURSE...

Fashion + Direction

 Swedish designer Richard Söderberg

Love when the clothes and the art go in the same direction.

Regardless of the fact that this looks like a cross between Rick Owens, Gareth Pugh and Julius Garden. Just sayin.

Hi kids!

Amazon women are a rare visual treat here's a fave. Vintage Brigitte Neilson looking amazing and yet another reason why I don't drink, do hard drugs or party excessively. Scary that you can one day look like this and then a few years later be a complete mess. SMDH.

I'm an honest women...for the most part. I don't rob or steal but there are certain people that spur a level of jealousy so deep in my core that I spend countless waking hours trying to figure out how to go about plotting a walk-in closet heist ala 007's Plenty O'Toole

I'm not a diamond ring kinda girl so I was beyond excited this morning to stumble upon this art piece. I have finally found my very perfectly imperfect engagement ring.

I do be do be do.

Neutrally Dark

Welcome to the dark side.

I've never been drawn to bright colors and being a Latina woman I've always had to justify my dark side. In my culture, a lack of brights is associated with everything from depression to attracting negative spirits and energy.

Trust me, I fully understand the effects of color on mood, how it enhances your skin tones and gives off subconscious messages about your personality. I get it. Red means power. I get it.

Nevertheless I find comfort in neutrals; chocolate brown, gray, camel and of course black on black. Not only do they speak to my introverted nature, I find these colors chic, rich, sophisticated and versatile.

Neutrals allow me to add a piece to my wardrobe without having to buy a whole outfit. Everything goes with the flow and follow me to the dark side.  There is nothing to be afraid of. Nothing makes me more excited than a monochromatic charcoal gray palette and when adventurous with a dash of burgundy.

Some colors are just too bright for my taste, the few times I wear a bright top I gotta keep my shades on. So what do you do when things seem too loud for your taste? You mute it.

Thankfully this fall muted brights are here to combat all the negative spirits!

Nowadays I find myself adding a dash of color with accessories, jewelry, a bright nail polish here or an off beat broach there. All black outfit with a Guatemalan purse made of woven fabrics in every color known to man.

Adding an unexpected pop of color to an other wise neutral color palette when done well gives a flair of sophistication and place for the eye to rest and of course...combat negative spirits.
