Hey guys, sorry, I’ve been busy all week and haven’t been able to post. I’m super busy today too … but I did want to post something. So, here it goes …
I love Lady Gaga’s style. Her music – sometimes isn’t my favorite – it’s a bit to poppy. But her looks – love them. Their creative, thought-provoking and inspiring. I’d love to wear some of them – except, where would I wear them? Kai’s soccer game tomorrow? Prob not. ha!
Do you like her? Do you like her style? Do you like her music?
Yesterday’s post about Japan’s harajuku fashions made me think of Gwen Stefani, who I adore. Ever since “I’m just a girl” was released, I’ve been in awe. I love her punk, rebellious attitude of the 90’s and her glamourous, sophisticated, mothering and eclectic style of today.
I scoured the web and found an array of her styles and love that she can pull them all off effortlessly.
Which is your fave Gwen style? Personally, I love her rocker style.
Throughout middle and high school, I had a Japanese pen pal – Miwako. We sent each other gifts a few times a year. She’d send me seaweed cookies and Hello Kitty gear. I’d send her American magazines and makeup. I still have all of her letters, pictures and trinkets she sent me in a box at my mom’s house.
But when she and I went to college we lost track of each other. I’d love to find her. So, I’m dedicating today’s post to my long lost pen pal Miwako, who I dream of visiting one day. (I also dream of dressing like a harajuku girl – don’t you?)
It’s the time of year for all of the bathing suits to be on sale – 70% off baby!
I tried some on this past weekend, with no avail.
But although, I don’t think I could pull off one of these retro swimsuits, I still adore them. Don’t you?
For those of you who have been reading my blog for a while, you must know by now that I am crazy about mod – fashion, furniture, colors and design. To me, it represents a time when the world was reinventing itself (society, culture, design) into the modern age. I love the innocence and playfulness of it all. And Twiggy emulates everything about that time. I love her. I love her style, her hair, her eyelashes. Don’t you?
What’s your favorite era?
So instead of showing you one of my favorite or recent trips or tell you about one of my dream vacays for Travel Thursday, I thought I’d show you some photos of a time when traveling itself was an adventure and the flight attendants were the stars of the show in their cute mod mini dresses with graphic prints and geometric shapes. Aw … I heart that era – don’t you?
