Sickness for skateboards

Sick right?

Chic champagne

When you're done with your DIY Rodarte style motorcycle jacket, try this champagne "gift bag" custom made for Rodarte to celebrate their Fall '09 show - wouldn't you be the " hostess with the mostess " if you could pull this one off?

I DIE for this DIY

Rodarte motorcycle jacket -  of which  Blog Googles did a post today on how ridiculously expensive it is - agreed . However, the key elements to this look are not that difficult to achieve. ( above -Rodarte backstage strapping their boots )...

Take the neckwarmer - Bleach Black did a similar one ( see below ) using this

The you might want to check out this DIY from Love Meagan
She cut the straps from a leather skirt - or you can use vintage / thrifted belts...

Add a few strategically placed cool buckles... (  below - from our own Revolution Vintage line -we paired here with a reverse applique vintage tee, lace cami and vintage sequined cardigan )... 

...and voila! A stunning one of a kind design that looks every bit as cool and expensive!

Rachel Zoe is killin' it in this Stella Mc Cartney tee, Rachel Zoe for QVC vest, and Giuseppe Zanotti design shoes.
Found this pic in OK Magazine - on newsstands now ( got mine at Pavillions on Point Dume in Malibu ).
Bottom line - I love this look on her. Some of the stuff she wears - although beautiful - ages her. This is such a fresh look for her and I love it!
Especially the beret!

OH Stella

Correct me if I am wrong but I do believe that I can find similar pieces in vintage right?
Hitting the Fairfax Flea Market this morning in search!

Fall's new trend?

Loving the arm adornments at Chanel. Do I see a fall trend coming? Donna Karan did hers in what looks like a faux fur.
