It was just such a fun packed weekend that I had to do a second post, plus I am trying to re-purpose my #vine videos on here for a little something new.
p.s. I’ve also included some gems of my sister Tiffany Wendel’s style
I am always telling you about some of my favorite designers (Stone_Cold_Fox, Novella Royale, Blu Moon, Luv AJ etc.) Then this morning in my email I see that Planet Blue has done a video with all of them! OH JOY! I also put a few of my favorites from the designers down below. Shop Here.
Here is a project I worked on a while ago. I did the styling for Makio in his new video ‘Superman’. Enjoy!
It is nearly impossible for me to map where my style is going to go day by day much less 20 years down the line. I love the surprise of that. However, if I could aim to be a combination of these two women I would be over the moon. I fully plan to be a crazy eccentric old lady and in the meantime I’ll aim to be more like Gloria Baume, the fashion director at Teen Vogue.
Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to Red Lantern for a special look at Charlotte Ronson’s collection put on by Sells & Co. Unfortunately, my big fancy camera doesn’t make me a better photographer but I tried to capture a few of the looks that were feminine and flowy. With Charlotte’s sister Sam in the DJ booth the show was perfection.
Most of you may already know that you can find Sells & Co. in Winchester but in case you didn’t know, you can also find it on Newbury at their pop-up shop right below Riccardi at 116 Newbury Street.
I finally got my Blue Tribe dress from QooQoo which was a shock and a delight. I love the print and the long shape although it might have been a little warm to wear to a bar.
Sorry there was no post yesterday! I couldn’t get the video to upload before I headed out.
Anyway, I was talking with someone in line the other day about how its so hard to pick a favorite show. Some were my favorite because of the pieces, others for hair and make up and some just for the vibe.
Betsy Johnson was one that had a really fun vibe. The Nicki Minaj soundtrack was bumping so hard I think you can see my camera shaking. Plus they gave me a scented pink hair extension. How can you go wrong with that? Actually it was super smelly.
As usual here is the final walk video and some street style photos I grabbed.
I came to NYC with only two shows on my calender and decided to wing the rest. As it turns out that went quite well and I am now going to stay until Thursday. More and more images to show you all that’s for sure. Part of winging it was catching these two off site shows, Mataano and Korto Momolu. I still can’t get over how odd it is to see light flowy fabrics and so few layers right now especially when we are all getting prepared to bundle up. However, I would love to have those crazy pants at the end of the Korto Momolu show.
Check out the final walk from both shows as well as more fashionably decked out people from the week.
I haven’t decided if this is work appropriate or not. But hey that’s your risk not mine. I’ve been digging on artist Maryln Minter all week and I didn’t know to share her stuff but wherever here you go.
Sorry about the lack of posting. I ran into a bit of an internet problem. Anyway, I spent the weekend at home in Minneapolis for the 4th and it was absolutely amazing.
I never take as many pictures as I mean to at home so this post is a combination of iPhone photos and real photos.
Here is my little photo diary. I know Minneapolis isn’t a vacation destination for most of you and I kind of like it that way…keeps the riff raff out. But if you find yourself there, this can be your mini guide.
My first Arm Party (No I didn’t make that up. See The Man Repeller for that one). Woven bracelets from a random craft booth. Waffer bracelet by Vanessa Mooney , woven rhinestone bracelet by Brian Rose.
The song of the weekend for those of you allowed to listen at work.
What I wore to Cocina Del Barrio at 50th & France: Levi jean shorts, American Apparel Circle Knit Sweater, Mia shoes, and PS1 bag
Then came bowling at Bryan Lake Bowl. An amazing old school ally but be sure you know how to manually score your games or bring a friend that is good at math.
Dinner with the family and some friends. What I wore: Earrings from Gypsy, dress and and belt from LF Stores
Boating on Lake Minnetonka and a Twins game.
Then today I got to see my favorite nail woman Rhonda and she put these amazing gold metallic Minx nails on me! You can find her at The Jason Deavalon Salon (1517 W Lake St Ste 1
Minneapolis, MN 55408). Have her order you some fun colors and off you go! I am obsessed with them.
I always go to Avanti and see Priscilla when I am home in Boston but unfortunately I won’t be back until next Monday and I desperately needed to so something about these roots and trim my bangs. I couldn’t see a darn thing. I’ve been working on doing a little bit more of a beachy look so I don’t have to worry about my roots growing out as much.
It is always so nerve racking going to someone new especially when it’s supper last minute. Luckily I am from here so I could ask some reliable sources about where to go. The Hair Police (611 West Lake Street Minneapolis | 612.824.1641) in Uptown is where I ended up. They have been cranking out kick ass hair since 1986 and while they are known for their crazy dreads and extensions, they also do a good run of the mill cut and color like mine.
This place is amazing. I’ve included a few photos (that I did not take) below. They do everything you can think of. Clearly I wasn’t getting anything too crazy but as you can see they specialize in the unique. I could go on and on about how neat this place is and if you are in the area call up Jesse.
It’s hard to show without the tripod, but I adore it with the darker color under and that it will be super easy to up keep.
They also do a fun Dread Tour. So if you are thinking about getting some, check out their tour dates.
Keep an eye out for more posts as I move on to Deadwood, SD
