Kings Of The Wild Frontier: Boots Boots Boots!

These boots:

Are simply gorgeous and remind me of this song:

I would wear them in an instant and probably dig out my Adam and the Ants cd to dance around to this song in them.

Alexander McQueen...I Get Your Appeal Now.

I used to not understand why people loved Alexander McQueen but after seeing his Fall offerings, I get it now.

I wandered the Internet seeing what I would buy if I were to spend some hard earned cash on McQueen clothing and came up with this:

Above: Pleated Jersey Dress by Alexander McQueen

I am a fan of grey as a colour for Fall/Winer clothing and I love the pleated front. I also like the slit down the middle of the bust which adds a bt of 'sexy' to the dress. I would totally wear this dress in a heartbeat.

And maybe with these boots:

They are simple in style, yet gorgeous. I would totally love to own them.

Now, if I could just get the income coming in to support my love for high fashion clothing, shoes, and accessories I will be very happy...

Gorgeous Marimekko Tote

I have a deep love for Marimekko and the designs of this Finnish company. I have bedsheets, postcards, and even eye makeup featureing the floral designs from Marimekko.

Today I got this:

Above: Crusade Tote by Marimekko at Avon

It is roomy enough to carry quite a bit but, also purse size so not overwelmingly big. The colours are MUCH brighter in real life (as in bright red/pink) and it has a cool "Marimekko" tag on it so that makes me happy. It's simply gorgeous.

The best thing? It is $10 and all proceeds go to breast cancer research so if you love Marimekko, head over to and snap one up!

The Perfect Kiss: Wonderful Draped Dress.

This dress:

Above: Gotham City Dress in Black at

The dress is just so gorgeous and it makes me think back to the underground dance parties/raves I went to in the late 80s/early 90s that were held in warehouses. Ahh those were the days.

Just imagine what it would look like dancing on a podium to this song:

Gogol Bordello Kick Ass Live!

It was like being a huge, gypsy, after-wedding, party due to the music and the spirit of the crowd. Much dancing around anf clapping to the songs. So much clapping I discovered a huge, purple, bruise on the underside of my ring finger on returning home.

Bands usually don't go all out in Spokane because the town is smaller and the crowds are smaller. Gogol Bordello didn't hold back and really performed full force! Their encore was 30 minutes long because they don't like to stop playing. They mentioned they may be back in Spokane in the future and the amusing thing?

They didn't play in Seattle this time at all.

I could have gone to the afterparty but wasn't sure how to get home in the early morning hours so passed...sadly. If I had my own car I would have gone for sure.

I took a few random snapshots with my Sony Cybershot which are a tad blurry but, the whole audience was jumping up and down to the music (and there were constantly changing lights) so it was hard to get a steady shot even with that option built into the camera.

So far, in the last two years I have seen 3 bands I had on my "Must see live"" list: radiohead, Flight of the Conchords, and now, Gogol Bordello.

I would see any of them again in an instant...especially radiohead and Gogol Bordello.

If you get the chance to see Gogol Bordello, YOU MUST GO!

I saw Gogol Bordello on Sunday night and......The concert KICKED ALL SORTS OF ASS!!!!

These Boots Are Cool.

I think I may need these boots:

Above: Peep Toe Ankle Boots by Forever 21

I love the brown colour and the buckles. They are not expensive at all at $32.80.

Time to think about how badly I want them and if they are worth the expense.

Random Fashion Items I Love.

I have happened across some clothing/accessory items I love while playing around with my stylefeeder. I am going to share them now with you.

Above: Spear Necklace by Pade Vavre

The necklace really looks good on a living, breathing, person:

Just simple and great looking with a scoop neck or off-shoulder top.

Or maybe a shirt like this:

Above: Mega Wide Organic Cotton T-shirt by Bassike

I love the shirt's flowy look and the off-shoulder style as well. It just looks comfortable and classy at the same time. Now that I own a great strapless bra...I am more willing to wear this sort of shirt.

I am really lking this hat:

Above: Stormy Earflap Cap by Eugenia Kim

It is a bit too spendy for me, at $176 but, I would so wear one like it if I found a similar style for cheaper. Even in San Diego it would be great for those early, winter, mornings at the beach or out and about before the marine layer burns off.

Above: Sweet As Can Be Wrap by Francesca's Collections

The wrap is lacy, long enough to use over tees, short-sleeved, and would actually look good with so many different outfits. Even when teamed with the grey knit cap that I posted above this.

This shirt is very cool with it's design and colours:

Above: Darcy Blouse by Diane von Furstenberg

It looks comfortable and goes well with jeans teamed with a pair of wedges. Olive green is my favorite colour and I love it teamed with black.

Above: Short Leather Necklace in Turq & Brass by Victorian Hippie

My love of turquoise continues though this time teamed with leather and brass. I would definitely wear this necklace often.

And why not end the post with a pair of shoes I would love to own?

Above: Blue Suedette Ankle Boot by Forever 21

I love the blue and I love the side zipper. These boots would be so much fun to wear!

I may not be a big fan of a lot of the Fall fashion that is out in the stores but, I can find some items that would be fun to own. I could mix any of these fashion items into my existing clothing wardrobe to "refresh" it this Fall.

Lime Crime Lipsticks!

You may remember my love of Lime Crime's eye dust.

Now the site is having a presale for the lipstick line being launched:

Lots of nice, intense, pastel, colours and a true red, as well as a black.

Check it out!

How I Spent My Weekend.

How did I spend my weekend?

Cuddled up in bed, in a toasty comforter, devouring these books:

Above: 8-book Sookie Stackhouse set by Charlaine Harris

Yes, the books that True Blood (the tv show) is based off of.

I laughed a lot out loud. I got excited about, well, a lot of what went on in the books. I yelled at Sookie because she is an idiot who cannot see what is right in front of her nose.

 (Sookie. Tall, blonde, viking, vampire, male. Yeah him. Stop playing like you don't like him, be upfront with your feelings, tell him how you feel because he will be beyond thrilled, and stop torturing the man. Seriously.)

I have decided I liked the character of Eric much more after reading the books. I have read all the books except for book 9, which I am on the verge of buying because I have to see what happens!

Now, I need to re-read them slower. I need something to do between True Blood seasons and this works.

Inspired By History.

I am thinking that we are gong to see Celtic/Norse inspired, or Historical based, jewelry and clothing items become popular in the next few months.

Ancient designs with a wink at the modern so to speak.

Feast your eyes on this necklace:

I love, love, love, this necklace! It feels like it could be in a museum but, would be great for wearing out and about too! Look at the knot design! Wow!

This bag is also very "I woud see it in a museum but, would wear it":

Above: Rust Suede Pouch by JJ Winters

I like the colour of the leather and the chains well as the studding. It just looks like something that would be worn in the 4th century or around that time. I would wear it today with just the right outfit.

These boots:

Above: Ballard Brown Laced Up and Buckled Boot by Wanted

The boots just make me want to take up sword fighting, take a sailing ship to and pillage a village, or kick some invader's ass! I love them and the lacing is just so cool to look at.

Yes, I think the whole Celtic/Norse (and other early historical times)  inspired, items are going to start invading the fashion world in the next few months. It's just a deep feeling I have. Let us see if I am right.
