Yesterday, I went to the Farmer's Market on Sunset and ran into Hines Buchaman (Project Blowed and the A-Team) and Justin Bua. With all these handsome, talented men hanging around Silverlake, no wonder the girls on the block dress so fashionable just to go to the market. It was then that the idea to give Street Credit to fellow Fashionistas came to surfice. Turns out that unbeknownst to me, the first person that I felt deserved credit was Irish model and musician Kojii Helnwein from Models of the Runway. When I got home , I googled her name and it looks like she is not only beautiful but also super talented. Kudos to Silverlake fashion.
There are people in life that you might have never met but you feel like somehow they took a trip inside your head, something resembling the state of mind that gave birth to the settings of Being John Malkovich. I have always felt that Alexander McQueen was that person to me. My theory is that this ability of seeing into a woman's heart can and has been, in this case, passed on through osmosis. Early this year , after the great Alexander McQueen abruptly left us, his former assistant Sarah Burton was chosen to carried on his legacy. I believe she has heard my wishes when she made me Fall in love with this Fall collection full of Laces, Pleats and elegant daring patterns. Needless to say more, Fashion moves Forward. I will always love you Alexander.
Dr. Martens is bringing sexy back this fall, not only in it's original rugged form but also in crisp clean new styles like the Denzel and the bright gold version of the classic 8-eye boot that you guys can sport at the Stay Gold parties. In celebration of the 50 years of street credit, Dr. Martens invited some of the most eccentric creative minds of the music industry to lay down the sound track to the lifestyle. On the website you can download free mp3s by Dam-Funk, Buraka Som Sistem, and more. If you don't get the shoes, get the music! Doctor's order!

When my mother was in town we went to the Guess by Marciano, and that's wear I saw this piece. It comes in 3 different colors but this is the one to get. If you feel ambitious my size is 6, ok?
I'm so in Love with Cookies-N-Cream! I love Art, Shirts and Toys, but I also love the way these guys are running their brand and keepin it true. If you're in NY long enough most likely you will run into the mobile store, but if you don't wanna take chances just follow the truck on twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/TheCookiesMob! I do!

This first blog started as a request by a friend. Those of you who have had the courage of riding in my whip during the summer have also seeing my driving gloves. I'm not trying to look cute, I have a perfectly good explanation for them, as i have for every strange thing I do. My 350 Z came equiped with a short shifter made of metal, when it's hot out it burns the tips of my fingers. I could just as easily cover it with a towel, but then I really wanted to look cute with my vintage gloves on. Here's were you can get the style:
