I’ve just come across this really cool jewelery collection from a Brazilian artisan… Fernando Akasaka.. Each piece is handcrafted and is unisex (!! perfect for sharing pieces!) … the collection has a beautiful, raw organic feel to it…with pieces inspired by sea creatures, reptile scales, bird claws and snakes..giving it a unique feel and edge!
I could totally see my favorite Zeflings in this…. (if I could style them;-)

Wearing the most amazing vintage asymmetrical Bill Blass jacket, vintage Elvis tank top given to me by the sweet ladies from Fruition in Las Vegas, vintage belt, Ralph Lauren bandana, vintage clutch from Vintage Martini, beetle and octopus necklaces from our own jewelry line, Current & Elliot jeans, and my beloved new Yves Saint Laurent platforms.
I am a huge, huge Adolfo fan but ironically I do not own any Adolfo hats (Adolfo began as a milliner). My mom was at Vintage Martini with our partner in crime Tina (the Bag Snob) and called me wondering if I’d be interested in a raccoon hat by Adolfo. In my mind’s eye it wasn’t quite as…intense. But you know what they say here in Texas, go big or go home.
In New York I saw fur hats in this style that were much larger and more dramatic. I couldn’t help staring at them like they were big furry fungal growths on their owners heads but it didn’t seem to phase New Yorkers.
This hat will keep me warm in the weeks to come…it hasn’t gotten above freezing all week here in DFW.
and more MAAADNESS…:
to put them on…they are exquisite! Thank you so much Natalie and Ferdinand!
thanks for making my day in style today… now I can go sleep peacefully!
EVERYONE in the fashion industry is talking about MOTHER Jeans… Their collection is barely out yet and already all the rage! For me it was love at FIRST sight and I’m currently looking into getting them for Alexandra Del Lago!!
read below what Dena Rochelle has to sat about them from www.treschicnow.com has to say about them!
Sometimes it’s torture to have access to beautiful new things months before I can share them with my readers (or put them in my closet). I was introduced to the brand-spanking-new Mother denim label last fall and I’ve been thinking about them ever since. Below, you’ll find an interview with the designers Tim Kaeding, former Creative Director/Designer at 7 for All Mankind, and Lela Tillem, former President of Sales + Marketing at Citizens for Humanity. As you might have guessed, their previous experience at such powerhouse premium denim labels has prepped them to launch a new line that will surely attract my fellow denim aficionados.
See for yourself: our slideshow and designer q+a [below] feature the full look book from the debut season, spring 2011. Mother has a definitive retro vibe, which is timely for denim trends. But as any good denim line does, they cover everything from skinny jeans to micro-flares, as well as short shorts, a high-waisted mini skirt and leggings. I’m smitten with The Looker skinny jean in Heaven, Texas wash, which lives up to its name, boasting some of the softest and most comfortable denim I’ve ever touched:
I also love The Straight A long denim skirt… actually, obsessed would be a more accurate description of my adoration. As in, it’s definitely on my must-have list:
D~ What sets this line apart from other premium denim lines?
Tim~ “We have exclusive denims that we’ve developed with our mills in Japan and Italy. We’ve worked with a lot of them for years and years, which gives us the luxury of doing exactly what we want for fabrication…We are also trying to bring denim out of the typical ‘vintage’ arena and bringing back bright colors and minimalist design details like simple welt pockets and clean lines with simple stitching.”
D~ Lela, which styles will you be wearing this season? Any personal faves?
Lela~ “The Drama Trouser in Forever Blue.”
D~ Which styles were the most popular among buyers?
Tim~ “Almost every boutique placed orders for The Wilder and The Drama (both denim trousers).” [see slideshow below]
D~ Lela, what brands/designers do wear with Mother denim?
Lela~ “Isabel Marant.”
D~ “I’m kind of obsessed with the long denim skirt … will you repeat that style for fall? How did the buyers respond to it?
Lela~ “It seems everyone is obsessed with The Straight A skirt, it is so simple but the buyers said Mother was the only denim line with that silhouette. Yes, we are repeating for fall in some beautiful soft new washes.”
D~ What are some of the denim trends that you’re most excited to feature for fall 2011?
Tim~ “Adding pop—shiny saturated pop. Also elaboration on lengths—dropping waists and raising inseams, really exploring ways to elongate the figure.”
as for me… I can’t wait to get my hands on them!!
Fort Worth was amazing!
