Sean and Charlotte: Hippie-fab

I’ve gone back to my Hippie roots when it comes to my fashion choices. So I thought it’d be fitting to re-visit my love of Boho-chic musicians Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp-Muhl.

Sean and Charlotte on Love

Charlotte and Sean not only have their own unique sense of style that I can only describe as Hippie-Victorian-Wild West Chic, but also are founders of the band The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger (a.k.a. The GOASTT).

Change of Hair/Change of Scenery

I’ve done away with a lot of hair. A substantial amount of it. Enough hair to hold a year and a half’s worth of obstacles, negativity, and questions. Oh, I’m being dramatic. But only partially.

A few posts back I wrote asking for some advice because of how I’ve been feeling lately. I got some really nice and thoughtful responses and I appreciate all of them. they helped me make a big decision.

I’ve decided to move back home for a month or so. There have been things going on in my life that have been burdening me for a long time and some things that have only begun to burden me. I’ve decided that going back East and being around friends and family in my home state is the perfect place to do some serious soul searching.

I leave Oakland tomorrow. I’m nervous and also really excited at the prospect of getting to clear my emotional slate and figure out what I need to be happy. It will be my time to really decide what I want, not what I think I should want.

I plan to use this blog to my advantage, of course. I think it would be a really great therapeutic and creative source to document my time over there: what I’m thinking about, what I see, and the things that remind me of who I am. Maybe some of you will relate, maybe some of you won’t but I’m really eager to share this exploration with you all.

I’ll keep in touch from Massachusetts! ❤

Inspiration Care Of Seven Devils

Since I am admittedly totally obsessed with everything about Florence Welch including her fashion sense I wanted to share this fan-made video for her song Seven Devils. It is compiled by FATMFanClub who used some really prime clips of Florence looking oh so hauntingly stylish (as usual):

What do you think??

The girl with style like the girl with the dragon tattoo

I have found another girl to be slightly obsessed with. Rooney Mara A.K.A. Lisbeth Salander, A.K.A. The girl who dumps Mark Zuckerberg in the Facebook movie, A.K.A The great-granddaughter of the founder of the NY Giants (Go Giants!). Rooney has adopted her heroin’s style as her own and has admittedly found part of herself whilst playing the famous reclusive character in Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

She has gone from a cute, girl-next-door with long hair and summer dresses (and looked great!) to a woman with a strong presence, a quiet confidence and jet black tresses (And looks fantastic, in my opinion.) What do you think of her transformation and style sense?

Before

After:

 

I know that a lot of people may not like the striking darkness of her newfound sense-of-style (my boyfriend, for one, much prefers her before). But I personally have always been drawn to black hair, dark, clothing, and a quiet demeanor. Mara has said that her new style suits her nature. It looks like she’s really comfortable this way and I admire how she’s taken something from her craft and learned something about herself from it.

 

Blonde Ambition

I’m stuck sick at home today (boo!). At least I have movies to watch like Truth or Dare, the behind the scenes documentary of Madonna’s Blonde Ambition tour in 1990.

I remember seeing this documentary years ago but I definitely wasn’t as aware of how amazing and iconic Madonna was. In case any of you have forgotten, Madonna was (and is) such an amazing trendsetter and was able to push the boundaries of female sensuality / sexuality in a way that changed our view of ourselves.

Her collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier for her stage costumes helped bring her influential fashion sense to another level. Who can forget this iconic under(over)garment:

I watched the movie thinking about how amazing her costumes were and how they are still relevant today.

My Girl Shannyn

I’ve been slightly obsessed with Shannyn Sossamon ever since her role in A Knight’s Tale. I have even chopped off my hair (more than once) just to feel more Shannyn-esque. She isn’t the most well-known or famous actress/DJ/Mom out there, but I think her eccentric style is really unique.

My Girl Zooey

My boyfriend and I are kind of obsessed with Zooey Deschanel (Not sure if it’s for the same reasons, though). We’ve been watching her new TV show New Girl every week and I cannot get over how hilariously adorable she is. Her comic timing and style is perfection. So, here are a few of my favorite Zooey looks:

Holiday look?

With her band-mate of She & Him.

gotta love this 70s inspired look.

I noticed she's all about pairing black tights with little dresses.

Great lacy blouse and I love her hair in this photo.

A photo from New Girl. Nerdalicious!

Again with the lace

So casual. So cute.

Stripes + white collar = Oh yeah.

A little breakdown for you all.

Hehe.

Rockin' a great blouse and heart necklace.

See, black tights with a bold print dress.

Cheeky beach babe.

Metallic dress is to die for.

What’s your favorite Zooey look?
