We are a little late to post on this but we are still super excited about Solange being the face of Madewell’s Fall ’12 campaign “Mix Well. Made Well.” Solange is another strong and experimental individual who stays true to herself. She is the perfect person to represent the new idea behind the campaign, which is to mix things up with Madewell’s easy basics along with their fashion forward prints and patterns. Anytime we see pictures of Solange in her everyday life, we see her in bold colors, fun prints and interesting layering pieces. We will be keeping an eye on her and her fabulous style.
We can’t get enough of Philosophy’s “Mangos and Cream” lotion and shower gel. If you are as obsessed with mangos as we are, then you’ll definitely want to stop by your nearest beauty store to pick this up. Not only does it smell divine, it makes your skin look and feel super soft to the touch. This is a great gift!
We stumbled upon these old French fashion magazines from the 80′s. We are going to use them to brush up on our French, see what 80′s styles are currently still being used, and to jazz up our coffee table. Remember when models used to grace the covers of magazines? The majority of what we see in the newsstands are actresses and music icons. It’s now the face on the cover that magazine companies depend on to bring in revenue.
Found these this weekend at Anthropologie at The Grove and fell in love. We love the cut of the upper and the dainty oxford design. Unfortunately they were a size too big and had to be passed along to a friend. Pay it forward?
A few weeks ago we stopped by Holy Fuck’s (excuse our informalities) weekly free comedy in show at the Los Angeles Downtown Independent where we had yet again one of those moments of “WHY DIDN’T WE THINK OF THAT?” Outside of the theater sat Tin Box of Curious Artifacts, a vintage clothing truck with the same premise as the booming food truck industry, but with clothes- vintage clothes. Follow them on Twitter @tinboxboutique to find out where they will be next!
You know when you see something online and talk yourself out of buying it? “It’ll be there forever! You don’t need to spend money today on this”? I have this thought often, but this time, it has come back to haunt me. I had been eyeing this “Catcher in the Rye” tee from www.outofprintclothing.com for awhile and a few month’s ago when I finally decided I NEEDED this shirt, it was gone. I quickly emailed Out of Print to see if the shirt would be coming back anytime soon and they cutely told me that this shirt is “out of print” for the time but to continue to check out the site- which I will, but nothing will satisfy me as much as this shirt.
So, here I am, scouring the internet for the same shirt. It feels like searching for a needle in a haystack, but I know that I will find it somewhere.
I suppose Out of Print took a cue from good ol’ J.D. himself, “If you do something too good, then, after a while, if you don’t watch it, you start showing off. And then you’re not as good any more.”

Our new favorite shirt in US Weekly:
Our horse-print shirt is confirmed as a good purchase for our fall wardrobe.
We love a guy with a good wrist watch. But mostly, we love WEARING a good guy’s wrist watch. Ladies take note, while statement necklaces are in, we are on the prowl for statement watches and the large faces of a man’s watch give us just what we’re looking for. Here, Nylon Guys shows us some of the best of the season. We’re eyeing the Marc by Marc Jacobs in the bottom right.
