My Love It Keeps Me Warm

the days creep closer and closer to spring, my heart just lights up so
bright. The memories from last spring and summer rush back into my head.
My white beach cruiser can bust out again! A tan may finally grace my
legs. I can read a book OUTSIDE for once! Endorphins be flowing. Every
single day I think of these little things that make me happy and content
and forward-feeling. Even when I am at work on my computer and feeling
completely stuck in a rut, I’ll just look at the sky light above my desk
and think, man it looks freaking beautiful outside, even though really it’s cold as heck. And that is reason
enough to lighten up a bit. Or I’ll put on my favorite tune and play it
on repeat and not give a damn if anyone else can hear it blasting from
my headphones. Whatever you can do each day to lift your spirits and
feel revved up, just do it. There is no point kicking yourself in the
butt or being bored or feeling unmotivated. Eat a piece of chocolate.
Get up and take a stroll outside. Go learn how to play that instrument you’ve been dying to learn how to play for so long but never found the time to. FIND THE TIME! Push away those feelings that make you
feel strapped down. Just smile maybe. There is so much sweetness in
each of these little things. And so much more height we can add to our
days. A height that can be as tall as this NYC rooftop. You may not
literally be on top of the world, but you sure as heck can feel like it.

Velvety layers and this reliable coat will save
me from the cold right now. Summer will just be the backdrop of my dreams while I
sleep for the time being. And check out the latest update to our Modern Vice Jett boot . . . The Ghillie boot! This pair is a snakeskin embossed leather lace-up with a removable kilty. Kilty or no kilty? It’s up to you! We really are having so much fun with our Modern Vice collaboration!! What do you think of the Gillie boot?

Okay, this is all I have for you right now. Keep cool babes and see ya’ll tomorrow. Thank goodness it’s almost Friday! xo


Spell and the Gypsy

February 27, 2013

Spell and the Gypsy Collective. One if those brands that with every single piece they create, I lust after with heart and soul. I think that deep down inside I want to be a Spell and the Gypsy girl. This lookbook of theirs mesmerizes me. Pure white and serenity and dry heat. All-American Southwestern touches with that Australian beachy-ness all rolled into one to create something undeniably perfect and quite magical. I hear the wind and I feel the sun just looking at these pictures. Can I collect just about every kimono, fringed piece and dramatically delicate maxi dress from this collection? Say I can, please.

I Knew You Were Trouble

The only reason for the title of this post is because I am currently listening to Walk Off The Earth’s cover of the Taylor Swift jam. Yup. That’s it.
One of the things that I love most about living in Philadelphia is the high quantity of cool patterned walls to be found all over the city. Like this blue and white striped one that makes me feel like I am a character in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. While I was editing, I couldn’t help but throw in some funny stickers for good measure. To keep the mood light. This day, Chesley and I went shopping at one of my favorite vintage shops in the city, Retrospect. I adore the little side streets off of South Street. They are so quaint with a little bit of quirky thrown in.

Finally another photo diary from my last trip back to California! These were taken the first day, where I spent the day catching up with my parents and trolling around my favorite old haunts in Santa Monica, Venice and Malibu. That blue sky never gets old. It was over 80 degrees when I arrived, and I was forced to take my black tights off as soon as my plane landed. Not that I minded, of course. Santa Monica is usually a pretty busy place, but it’s nothing compared to NYC. And Malibu, well it’s a ghost town in comparison. But the feeling of quietness and unlimited openness was refreshing to say the least. All I could hear were the crash of the waves, the seagulls and the swift passing of cars along the highway that gives you the best view of what California has to offer. That sunset. Gosh I miss it. And the saltiness in my hair at the end of the day. Gonna miss that, too. It was nice spending the day with my parents, who I only get to see a few times a year now since I moved to the east coast nearly two years ago. Gosh, it’ll be 2 years in May. I can’t believe it. If only I could time travel between coasts anytime I wanted, then life would be so much easier.
