“So I’m back, to the velvet underground
Back to the floor, that I love
To a room with some lace and pAper flowers
Back to the gypsy that I was
To the gypsy… that I was
And it all comes down to you
Well, you know that it does
Well, lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice
Ah, and it lights up the night
And you see your gypsy
You see your gypsy
To the gypsy that remains faces freedom with a little fear
I have no fear, I have only love
And if I was a child
And the child was enough
Enough for me to love
Enough to love
She is dancing away from me now
She was just a wish
She was just a wish
And a memory is all that is left for you now
You see your gypsy
You see your gypsy
Lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice
And it all comes down to you
And it all comes down to you
Lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice
And it all comes down to you
I still see your bright eyes, bright eyes
And it all comes down to you
I still see your bright eyes, bright eyes
And it all comes down to you
I still see your bright eyes, bright eyes
(She was just a wish)
(She was just a wish)
And it all comes down to you
Lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice
And it all comes down to you”

-Stevie Nicks “Gypsy”

This is one of my absolute favorite songs by Fleetwood Mac. Stevie Nicks has always been a major style influence for the bohemian side of my soul. Living in Laurel Canyon really brings out the boho aesthetic not only in my home, but also in my everyday style. Everybody has their “go to” uniform in their ensemble, mine typically consists of a pair of vintage levis, mom jeans. This “Suede Cropped Vest” designed by, Nasty Gal really spruces up that look.

King Krule

It’s a musical wednesday over here… Start your day off the right way with a little bit of King Krule. King Krule, was introduced to me via Spotify from my girlfriend. If we are playing a game of resemblance, I would say his music shows a slight remembrance of Ian Curtis from Joy Division, with a twist of Isaac Brock from Modest Mouse and would best be categorized as darkwave.
This particular video, “Easy Easy”, from his 6 Feet Beneath The Moon album, was directed by Focus Creeps in what appears to be the 8mm app on the Iphone. (That’s the way I would do it!)
Archy Marshall  AKA “King Krule” brings a new London flavor to the music universe. I think he has the start to something new that the music world has been lacking.

Look out for his upcoming tour dates in a city near you!

Best dressed at The Emmy’s

Julie Bowen
Kate Mara
Kiernan Shipka
Aubrey Plaza

If I was at the Emmy’s you would see me in any of the above dresses. These girls and their stylists really nailed it!

In order are my top 5 picks: 

#1 Rose Byrne was wearing a refreshing two piece pale pink number by Calvin Klein, with pretty minimal accessories this look is simple yet elegant for a day time award show.
(Claps for you Rose)!!

#2 Julie Bowen from the show, “Modern Family” was dressed in a stunning layered dress by Zac Posen and adding that gold clutch really takes it on home!

#3 Kate Mara from TV show, “House Of Cards” is in a gorgeous white embroidered long sleeve dress with a high slit by J. Mendel paired with no other but my favorite shoe designer, Charlotte Olympia, which adds even more sex appeal to this virgin-esque dress.

#4 Kiernan Shipka from Mad Men was wearing this playful floral dress by Delpozo with a EF Collection ring, and a thin strappy gold sandal. This dress is a femme dream!

#5 Aubrey Plaza from Parks & Recreations was dressed in a long-sleeve gown by Marios Schwab Gown. I love all the intricate detail from the flower petals to the what looks to be like bra suspenders, paired with her box clutch,is a perfect combo.

Trends I’m seeing for the upcoming seasons; A low pony tail and short hair, feel free to trim or cut those locks girls! In the makeup department; neutral smoky eyes and light/neutral luscious lips.
