diy woven chains

Woven chain bracelets, necklaces and rings are popping up everywhere and let's be honest, they SCREAM diy.

Luckily for all of us, Erica and Lauren thought so too and figured out the simplest way to intertwine the thread and chain links with this
'DIY Woven Chain Bracelet' post.

As Sue Ellen Crandell would say, "I'm right on top of that Rose!"

running up that hill

its hard to look cute and stylish when trainging right? wrong. 70's vintage retro high waist shorts! ah! cute! cute! cute! cute! cute!! cute! cute! the boys can't get enought of them. they are actually so flattering. they hide your love handles and shape your buttocks. team with boob tube if you can to avoid tan lines when doing your daily run on the promenade.

with devotion comes a heavy cross to bear. devoted, or addicted. where your time and energy and beliefs set in. to whom to you give them. whom do you trust? the things that weigh us down that we struggle to destroy and shed. the things blocking us from that heavenly devotion. the light of devotion. the gift. how many people are we really with? sometimes our devotion is shadowed by the clutter we surround ourselves with. devotion is a heavy cross to bear.

sometimes i gotta pinch myself

this was the view from the house we shot at today. it was for a base model. lovely girl. the shoot was all very st tropz inspired. but my days. how's that view? it's terrible! i don't know how anyone can work under those conditions! and i get paid to do this???

oldie but a goodie

the cotton t-shirt dress. invented by stella of course. this little number is an essential item for summer. they are so flatterring. so confortable. so easy to wear. it's effortless chic. we're over gladiator sandals now to be honest. sorry. so team up with a good pair of brogues. dont be scared to clash and mix colours. and perhaps a pair of doc's or doc inspired boots for an edgier take on the vibe. i'm getting one in nearly every colour imaginable. they're really easy to make actually (pep stores girls, mens tee's! cut themyourself for cheap! happy days!) love summer.

for the love of...

my fav's right now. black leather high waist shorts. they're like quirky and vintage and rock and roll all at the same time.effortlessly cool.wear with opaque tights and wedged black leather ankle boots.Shown in first pick with a Versace ring, Miu Miu bag, Alexander Wang shirt, Falke tights, Acne boots, Daisy Knights necklace and a Kara Ross ring. DIY them by going to a vintage store or leather store. most of the cuts were done high waist when black leathers were in. chop em' and roll em' up. easy. so hot.
