Denim Daze

My denim obsession is old and long but it truly started in the 80′s  when I started wearing and collecting vintage levis.  Back then my favorite uniform and outfit of choice was a high waisted perfectly broken in pair of vintage 501 Levis, a white Hanes tee I’d pick up on 14th street and my Comme Des Garçon menswear black brogues. Now of course our choice in tees is undeniably much more vast than Hanes, but the search for vintage levis and my passion for hunting down the perfect pair of jeans continues, as so does my denim obsession.

Denim also has grown through many phases and yes there were some bumps in the road. Need we discuss that huge bump that happened in the 2000′s called Low waisted denim, where the look of choice for many was butt crack and thongs. Oh how I remember those god awful True Religion and Frankie B jeans that everyone wore and embarrassingly enough I had subcome to the trend myself. School girls and women of all ages with their butt cracks and thongs hanging out everywhere you looked, never mind the term butt cleavage was born in the hopes to make it acceptable.

Lets just hope the Denim craze from the 2000′s never returns.

Today our choice of denim from vintage to designer is in perfect harmony. These are some denim ideas to inspire and enjoy.

I’m Ready For My Close-Up

Like most good things, it started on a Saturday afternoon.

A contest offering a chance to win a lifetime supply of movie tickets by simply recreating your favorite movie scenes? Okay, yeah, we’re in. One after another the ideas came pouring out and our little project quickly culminated into an entire series of stills depicting the films that not only had left a lasting impact on us, but also all happened to harbor strong female roles.

Women who found escapism through music and daydreaming, women who stole $40,000 in order to run away with their boyfriends, women who boldly used the power of seduction to their advantage, women who moved to the city of angels hopeful in their quest for fame, the ones who were lusted after for the wrong reasons, the ones who were lusted after for the “right” reasons, and the ones who repeatedly found themselves on the brink of a breakdown – and liked it.

This series is a tribute to them and our impressions of the characters in which they evoked on the silver screen.

The Dreamer

“She was the still point of the turning world; I never got over that girl. Never”

The Victim

“Oh, I don’t know. I guess I’m looking for a private island someplace where I can be alone and no one can find me.”

The Vixen

“You know I don’t like to wear any underwear, don’t you, Nick?”

The Obsession

“It was love at first sight, at last sight, at ever and ever sight.”

The Manipulater

“Life is ridiculous. And you know that I would never say anything bad about your father in front of you, but your father is a sick son-of-a bitch. “

The Enigma

“Lyings the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off – but it’s better if you do”

The Hopeful

“Of course, I’d rather be known as a great actress than a movie star. But, you know, sometimes people end up being both. So that is, I guess you’d say, sort of why I came here.”


Cheers to the women who made us feel a little deeper and ponder the universe a little more than we had before. We’re forever inspired by your spirits.

The End

The Day I Realized My Life Was Calling


There are times in your life you need to listen to your heart and your soul. If your soul is screaming then it’s time to change direction and re-evaluate your life and surroundings.  I knew it would be scary to take a risk, but something needed to change.

It has been almost 6 months since this realization and the trip that I took, that happened to be the calling of my life.  At the time I was working in an environment full of negative energy. I Knew I was not following my heart or passions and I was becoming negative too.  It was time to take a leap of faith and leave the job.

I searched the internet for something and somewhere to go and came across this amazing place called Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. It was like a calling because everything fell into place. My flights were dirt cheap and the accommodations were amazingly cheap too.  Since Camilla had not started a full time job yet and was only working freelance, I looped her in and dragged her on my adventure.

Together we found paradise and a new calling.

So let me introduce you to our little slice of heaven:  Lake Atitlan

Dream Space ::::::::

The best thing about bedrooms is that they’re specific to the people living in them. Your bedroom is yours. Your space to create, make your own, and hide from the rest of the world when necessary.

Wanderlust // Fernweh

After you take your first few big bites out of the world, the taste is sure to linger in your mouth for a while. It’s bittersweet because you’re not always sure of when you’ll be able to get away again, but you know that you would do anything to get that feeling of freedom and self discovery back, if you could.

This is where I am right now.

Pining, thinking and dreaming of ways in which I can  e s c a p e once more. Blaargh.

* r e v e l a t i o n s *

I don’t want to toot my own horn here, but I recently had “Eureka!” moment that requires me to state couple things,  and I’m going to warn you now it may be a little cheesy, but just bare with me anyway. (Or get off my blog. *blows kiss*)

1. I’ve had the privilege to grow up in one of of the best states, within one of the greatest cities of the world. 2. For twenty-one sweet years of my life I have called Los Angeles, CA my home, I am only just now starting to understand the magic that it holds.
