Darling Bonnie's Obsessions | 1/24/17
- Okay Miss.Jackson!!! Piercing blue eyes, edgy yet darling blonde cut, beautiful & fierce facial + an angelic doll made in punk rock heaven-esq theme no less. With the ever amazing David Lachapelle behind it all, it's no wonder I am obsessing over Paris Jackson's recent Rolling Stone cover and additional photo to accompany it as well. It's all so surreal + her candid "I use the word sh*t often" interview wasn't to be missed either. Paris spoke, unblushingly I assume, about everything from her relationship with her Dad, his death being not so accidental, suicide attempts, and a great deal more. It sounds a bit morbid I know but her honesty and ability to seemingly address the shadows in her life head on is not only inspiring but refreshing. Very Heroine Chic. I am very #INTOIT !
2. Fleur Du Mal Silk Smoking Robe
Oh honey, it twas love at 1st sight. I stumbled upon this gem while down a magical shopstyle rabbit hole and fell in immediate love. Now I'm not a smoker but I am not at all averse to a smoking robe! Actually I'm not really averse to any amazing robe but one made of black silk in a classic smoking jacket style with white trim that puts me in the mindset of being as chic as a Hugh Hef in the 50's. Obviously I'd be wearing mine sans any pants though and being more Bunny-esq then Hef but nevertheless oh yes dear, I am here for it! Oh and lookie. . . it's on sale! I mean ya had me at hello but then you threw a price drop of $276.00 down from $425.00 on there & I just about went Fran Fine & Lohemann's sales type of crazy.
I adore Haute Couture! The REAL Haute Couture. & it doesn't get much better than when done in a fairy tale lush secret garden setting, running under the name Dior, and displaying such fine craftsmanship that Christian himself would want to descend down from the fashion heaven's and applaud! Bravo Maria Chiuri! Bravo!
I have a deep and intense ongoing obsession with Vintage and anyone who truly knows me, knows that. They also know that I am in fact so enthralled by and obsessed with #Vintage that in the year of 2012 while still in music I released a mixtape titled just that, Vintage, which was filled with a variety of vintage samples throughout. In any event I recently discovered an Italian Vintage Women's wonderland online and I AM COMPLETELY . . .. you guessed it #OBSESSED with it. La Double J has EVERYTHING! Things to read, things to buy, things to watch, things to study, and amazingly fun stuff to look at, just how I like my sites packed with high quality content, shoppable, informative, innovative, and playfully eccentric.
Let me tell you about me and Vanity Cases. . .. I LOVE THEM! I have a wonderfully pristine #Vintage red Samonsonite that I got at the Alameda Antique Fair 2 years ago and I am in love with it. One of my fav parts of traveling is packing it up and toting it around. It nearly brought a Virgin America desk clerk to tears in NY last year as I was flying out and she was checking in my bags, she said it reminded her of her years working as a stewardess at PAN AM way back in the day, they had cases just like em. . . she even kissed it, which I found to be very odd but from one eccentric to another who I am to judge. In any event I've always got my eyes peeled for more & have yet to find any that I truly fancy until now. . . THANK YOU TED BAKER! xo
And again with vintage things. I watch this docu often and obsess over it every time. I adore 90s supermodel turned Yogini girl, Christy Turlington in addition to all of her crew all of whom are muses of mine and all of whom you see here often at the club. I also love watching the cinematic moments that makes the fashion world of the 90s seem like an ultra plush, super sleek, high style alternate universe, one of which I adore visiting by way of documentaries, books, and images. & as such this docu always does the trick!
