Mmm Mmm Good

jeffrey-campbell-biz-belted-bootieLOVE. The Jeffrey Campbell Biz Belted Bootie is the ish.  I’m behind the curve on this one though since they’re sold out everywhere, with the apparent exception of this Long Beach store.  I’m sketched out from ordering them on the Web site because everytime I call the store, no one picks up.  Bummed, but not giving up on these belted wonders. ($192)

Welcome to Music Town, may I service you?

“We mustn’t dwell… no, not today. We CAN’T. Not on Rex Manning day.”

One of my favorite movies is Empire Records. I had a serious crush on Johnny Whitworth. So here’s an ode to Liv Tyler’s style… the cropped shirt, plaid mini and combat boots. Oh how I don’t miss the 90′s, well, minus the combat boots because I feel like they never really did go out of style.

I dig the Wildfox Seniors Cropped Tee. Wildfox Couture draws its inspirations from Native American artwork and vintage rock & roll t-shirts. The style screams So. Cal edge with its easy, breezy nature.

If I was to channel the style of Liv, er “Corey”, I’d go with the Elizabeth & James “Starr” skirt (pictured last) for the sheer reason it has tiered ruffles (love).  Also pictured:  Express skirt and McQ By Alexander McQueen plaid mini.

Ok, so these soles will never go out of style.  I prefer the Rock & Republic Diego Combat Boot due to its edgy and sleek vibe (pictured first) over the YOOX Alfred boots and Rick Owens laced combat boots.

Two-Way

Easy access much? This screams open invitation, and I don’t want to RSVP. While I don’t get the need for a two-way zipper skirt besides the bonus of not having to wiggle out of it at the end of the night, I’m a fan of Nasty Gal, and its amazing, one-of-a-kind vintage pieces.  I’m adding the slashed batwing top to my growing DIY list.

Stomp of Approval

I’m digging these Free People shoes. A mix of vintage and boho, I’ll be making some purchases and stalking the site to see if the boots ever go on sale.

studded-vintage-combat-boot_free-peopleStudded Vintage Combat Boot: $388.

These are exactly the kind of boots I’m looking for, but way out of my price range. Plus, they got bad reviews but I still enjoy just looking at them. Future DIY project with the studs.

lace-up-field-boot_free-people1Lace Up Field Boot: $328.

Like the distressed look of these (too spenny) boots.

pheonix-strappy-boot-sandal_free-peoplePhoenix Strappy Boot Sandal: $108.

MUST have these Dolce Vita sandals. UPDATE: These are sold out online at FreePeople.com , but I just bought them for 10 bucks more on ShopBop.com.  UrbanOutfitters.com is also selling these in a brown/black combo for 20 bucks more.  Sheesh.

libia-sandal_free-people1Libia Sandal: $90.

Pretty gladiator sandals minus the harsh look.

hamilton-tall-buckle-wedge_free-people1Hamilton Tall Buckle Wedge: $248.

Fifty-footer Dolce Vita platform sandals that I wouldn’t be able to walk in. Great looking from afar, but at the end of the day, my feet would hate me.

Ring My Bell

Lusting after these one-of-a-kind rings from October Anniversary.  The company uses recycled metals sourced from eco-friendly factories and donates 10% of profits to Happy Hearts Fund.  I’ll be purchasing the Peace Lily in gold very soon (pictured directly above).  Practical?  No.  But completely unique and uber rad.

Also digging this CC Skye Angel Wing Ring available on ShopIntuition.com. Love this Daydream Nation connected knuckle ring as well.  Too bad it’s sold out.  I’ve always been a fan of LC’s double name ring, but would get a custom made one with a meaningful word, like Passion or Believe.  Pure finger-looking good.
