music: last name london

i've written about theophilus london before.  this guy is off the richter scale rad.  he technically falls into the hip hop genre, not so indie-electronic-alternative, but his shit's so different i had to feature him again.  his latest song last name london has fast become one of my favorite songs of the summer.  i need to amp this dude up so more people get to hear his talent!
last name london, first name theophilus, theophilus, theophilus!
did you like it?

me: the cat came back

me: ba with da ba da bang da bang accessories

i usually don't abide by the whole "take one accessory off before you walk out the door" schtick.  sometimes piles of accessories can really make an outfit.  i.e. this one.  a simple tank, and simple skirt and some cool kicks can really be amped up into something special by tossing on tons of baubles.  that's 2 bracelets, 3 rings and 3 necklaces to count.

tank: forever 21
skirt: urban outfitters
shoes: aldo
rings: adia kibur (shopbop), erica anenberg (hautelook),
low luv x erin wasson (shopbop)
bracelets: shashi (gilt), fallon (gilt)
necklaces: forever 21, the freckled husky

what's your take on over-accessorizing?  is it a do, or a don't?  does it work with my outfit?

me: birthday wang

i have a real big problem with innuendo don't i?  my bad.  the only birthday wang you're gonna see here is the wang i'm rocking!  this is my beloved t by alexander wang dress.  i save it for super special occasions, this one being my 29th birthday!
dress: t by alexander wang (shopbop)
earrings: lauren wolf (gilt)
bracelet: shashi (gilt)
rings: adia kibur (shopbop), disney (karmaloop)
bag: hype (gilt)
shoes: aldo
a dress like this doesn't need much accessorizing, so i kept mine simple and single hued.  i especially love my new revlon nail polish in "metallic".  

what do you think of my birthday wang?

me: twice styled babe: harem pants

harem pants.  everyone wants to wear them.  not everyone knows how to style them.  i myself have been challenged trying to find ways to wear my harems without looking like a genie or adding 20lbs to my frame.  here are my harems twice styled!
necklace: erica annenberg (hautelook)
tank: h&m
bra: t by alexander wang (shopbop)
pants: vince (tj maxx)
shoes: jeffrey campbell woodies (nordstrom)
purse: bcbg max azria (loehmann's)
rings: adia kibur, small things
 wearing a crop top with your harems is a great way to maintain a slender appearance.  not into showing off your tummy?  your wish is my command.  pair them with a slim top and a vest instead!

tank: free people
vest: mk2k (reverse-reverse)
earrings: express
rings: loehmann's
pants: vince (tj maxx)
shoes: faryl robin (gilt)
how do you style your harem pants?  what would you like to see me style next?
