ARE YOU READY, BOOTS?

A new shoe line I discovered today is a god-send for New Yorkers and country girls alike. Perfect for braving subways, alleys, meadows, and riverbeds alike – they look like they’d wear in nicely, but still have plenty of flair. And since I’ve been wearing heels a lot lately (Who have I become?!!) a practical pair of flat boots would be nice. Definitely a brand to watch – New Kids. I didn’t even make the New Kids On The Block pun, but trust me, I definitely thought about it.

OLD HOLLYWOOD

Some pictures I took a couple weeks ago at this really neat jewelry shop and veritable treasure trove in Greenpoint, Brooklyn called Old Hollywood. It’s on Franklin Street.

It really is splendid. Nothing is too pricey but everything is so special. I think it would be a good spot to find a good friend a birthday present.

All the necklaces, bracelets, and charms are placed very artfully – with a kooky idealism.

It is not too far from another one of my favorite stores, Fox and Fawn. I like living in Brooklyn. All these pictures were taken on my iPhone and I’m very satisfied with the quality. Makes it fun and I’m taking lots of pictures recently.

HOT AND COLD

“Make his blood run hot and cold”. Best slogan ever. GOBLINS? WEREWOLFS? Men as werewolfs and goblins – women as the enchanting, transfixing witch – LIKES THIS. LIKES THIS VERY MUCH. I would like to see monsters, goblins, and otherworldy creatures incorporated into advertising campaigns more often. Is that too much to ask? Tim Walker I’m looking at you.

Going through a phase. TheFashionSpot fueling epic discoveries.

60s60s60s

Images such as these remind me why at times I love the internet. A complete treasure trove ripe for picking, knick knacks to fawn over if you can spend a little time. These advertisements from the 60s are total gems, no?

FALL’S EASY FIX

What costs five, ten, or fifteen dollars and instantly give you a classic fall vibe? A bit of lipstick. Don’t forget your blotting papers – let’s not get messy.  I’m going to start with blood red, wine-stained burgundy, and a rusty coral… What shade will you be sporting?

Bonus PARTYDRESS points if you conquer deeeeep Boysenberry (aubergine-black) … Or maybe I’ll buy you a cupcake if you’ll try it with me! Cupcakes first – then dark lipstick. Then witchy takeover!!

LEOPARD INTERVENTION

Somebody stop me before everything I own is spotted in leopard print. Also, while you’re at it, buy me this jacket.
