Shop_Tempus Fugit

And another year older, yet perhaps this time around a little wiser!

They say that as you get older you're anxiety fades, because the brain cells responsible for anxiety die off (they're old so they die). So i guess celebrating the fact that your brain deteriorates like a sponge disintegrating and being expelled through your pee ain't so bad after all!

Ive decided to open a wee boutique via eBay with some of my hand selected vintage gems and sell some of these goodies. Please do feel free to have a gander.

I have also teamed up with fine artist Ransom Edgerton @helldforransom to create a jewelry line together called @shop_tempusfugit <3 My vintage gimlets and handmade jewels featured on instagram, take a peep. Everything is for sale, email at

So for my birthday I went to go see Erik Jacobsen, who's super down to earth (and very cute), tatted me up and in under 2 hours and a cupcake later I was in bed early.

Farfetch Competition

The exclusive designer online store Farfetch informed me of a competition to win a $300 voucher to their online store, so I was asked to put together an outfit with all menswear, the sole exception of only one piece from their womenswear section. This is obviously right down my alley as menswear is indeed my cats pajamas. And I could care less about the women sections these days, alas my shoe size fortunately does not reflect the male sex.

Farfetch works like this, they represent an online store, but the clothing is "fetched" for you across the globe, so you have more choices, more designers, and more unique pieces (and sizes!).

If ever I was allowed to raid someones closet, it would probably have to be some estate sale belonging to a late dandy, who indulged in accessories and classic button ups.

Inspired by the two legendary tom-boy toting fashion icons Katherine Hepburn and Diane Keaton, this is what I came up with.

Blazer, Vivienne Westwood
Shirt, Raf Simons
Trousers, Saint Laurent
Brogues, Churchs (womenswear section pick)
Pin and Bowtie, Lanvin
Necklaces, Rick Owens and Maison Margiela

Short Shag

Being MIA dipping in and out of existence has been my MO all throughout my life it seems. But alas, I am back to bring you some recent snaps of my new short shag reminiscent of this 


The shag is coming back in style, so go f*ck yourself lob, we are tired of seeing you.

They just don't make 'em like they used to

When my uncle in Texas emailed me that he started making hats and wanted to send me one of his many designs, I didn't hesitate to send him my "yes please" along with my address. After a few weeks, he sent me this vintage style matador hat carefully wrapped and cushioned upon arrival. After much contemplation, and review of the various styles, I decided upon the matador, a favorite of mine. Handmade in the U.S.A. (Texas to be exact), my uncle scouts the many vintage stores, estate sales and other resources in order to find a pristine vintage piece which is then replicated to fit, appear and made with the finest materials, as if you were to hop into a time machine and swoop it off some poor fools head back in the 1960s. Its craftsmanship is impeccable compared to what you'd find in stores today and will undoubtedly last you a lifetime. The saying is true, they just don't make them like they used to. Well with Chieffalo vintage hats, you no longer have to search incessantly all over eBay, etsy and flea markets, (like I do) for that perfect something to top off your outfit is not only custom-made in the U.S.A. to fit your style and head size, but also readily available wherever you are.

A little Pizazz

What with the last moments of cool weather blessing my heat hater soul, it is only appropriate to pay homage to the shivers by wearing a furry gigantic coat, one of many, in my sinful collection of outerwear.

I have decided to go bald and fully adopt the bowl cut life, thus my dreams of mullet goodness must take a back seat for now.

The Unexplainable and Some New Specs

In other news, Firmoo a website that sells an array of prescription glasses for low prices but pretty swell quality, contacted me in regards to a collaboration for the blog. I was pretty stoked as I am in actuality blind as a bat without my contact lenses and I was really due for a new pair of glasses to wear on my days off.


I called in for my prescription where I had my last eye exam and filled out the necessities online. You choose a style you like, then you have to know your prescription but your optometrist should give you a copy of that info. The shipping is quick and easy! The glasses come with a case and little glass cleaner towelette. I have gotta say these are surely the best glasses I have had so far because I didn't have to pay over $300 for glasses (I have a pretty ridiculously strong prescription, that costs insane, believe me) and they're sturdy! (Ive dropped them a couple times on accident, fuddling for them in the dark at 7:15am).

Thanks Firmoo! Check them out here.


For over a year now becoming the non beauty school dropout that I am, days upon hours and seconds surrounded by blow dryers, shears and endless hair color at my disposal and classmates devoted to turning anyones head into their very own science experiment and ecstatic to finally getting their hands dirty, meant I wasn't leaving beauty school with a head full of hair. This surprisingly doesn't bother me. And now, something reminiscent of a mullet and bowl cut with shaved side has taken shape onto my cranium. It was a concoction of what I enjoy most. Everything and anything mixed into one so that I may not become bored with it because at this point I don't have much hair anymore to torture anyway. So i better like it.

Herewith my new almost bald-headed-eagle-like 'do.

365 Days to the Wind

Hey there 2015, Cheerio 2014.


Over the past year, a few major changes have kept me away from blogging and photography in general. To name a few: Ive started cosmetology school at the Aveda institute to become a hairstylist, discovering a strong passion for cutting, coloring and blowing out all types of tresses, and I have suffered from some emotional turmoil with a loved one that recently passed away. Dealing with loss, and having grown a year older to find out that with age life's wrinkles smooth themselves out and things become frankly, a little bit easier. The simple stupid woes that once stirred my anxieties or chipped away at my confidence and certainty have long since dissipated. Thankfully. Once having thought that the struggle is real, the struggle becomes less intense and the rose tinted glasses begin to slide down onto the bridge of your nose comfortably. Don't get me wrong, the tint of those glasses may turn a bright red, I mean, everyone might have a slip up of some mean temper rising, but it does not remain so.

I also chopped all my hair off. I do like short cuts on others, (dibs to Twiggy and Rosemary's Baby era Mia Farrow) but I gotta say I do miss having the option of a curtain sliding over my eyes at times. However Im very much digging the ginger look for 2015.

Herewith my first post for this year. I look forward to more posts and grumpy pouts (Im not big on posing around in public *shoutout to the strange man who was smirking at me getting my outfit shot, as if I was completely naked or something*).
