What's in the Closet: Thomas Wylde scarf

I was devastated when I lost my Alexander McQueen skull scarf that I had since his Shipwreck collection. I kept looking around for a replacement, but it didn't feel the same, because they have been around for so long and a bit outdated. (I mean at least I have the "I got it over 6 years ago" excuse.) So, instead I found this:

A Thomas Wylde gypsy skull scarf, while I was in NY. ((:

What to Wear Daily: Bow Tie (Part Deux)

This is one of my favorite pieces I have by Ann Demeulemeester. It's an ivory cropped jacket and there is an attached vest/wrap that I can do anything with (or take it off). So I go ahead and tie it in a HUGE bow tie normally, just because it's so exaggerated.

Hello... and welcome to your new home...

(*Drool* I especially love the last jacket/cape. There are so many outfits that can be done!)

Shoe Collection: Alberta Ferretti Studded T-Strap

These remind me of my high school punk-rock days... when all I wore was Vans or Doc Martens with fishnet stockings on my arms and legs. Lol.

These totally remind me of the Christian Louboutin for Rodarte shoes from Fall '08:

... but obviously, not as fierce.

Music: Fleet Foxes

If you're really into the current "indie" music scene I'm sure you've heard of Fleet Foxes. I've been obsessed with their current release for the past few weeks. (I discovered them less than a year ago.) I fell of the face of the planet when it comes new music in the past months and to hear their recent album made me feel really great. They are playing 2 shows here in SF and I'm trying to go to their sold out Fillmore show, so wish me luck. I know I will find a way to see them. I missed them when they played at The Independent and I don't wanna miss another. They are just a beautiful mix of modern rock and roll and a mix of the amazing 70s (Beach Boys, The Beatles, etc).

What I Want: shoes... shoes...SHOES! (Shoe Print by Vee)

My buddy Vy has always given me the best gifts. For the past decade, almost every gift she has given me was made by hand. This past Christmas, she asked me what shoes I liked. I thought it was some project she was working on with at her graphic design job. So I tried to think of shoes that I like the past 2 seasons in less than 10 minutes.

Turns out she made me this:

A hand drawn print of selection of some of the shoes. Can you guess what some of them are? Some of them have been on my blog.

MarieBelle New York

Seriously... this place is out of control. John and I stopped by here for hot chocolate, not knowing what to expect. We just thought it was just a regular chocolate shop. I swear to you that the hot chocolate was so intense I could even finish a third of my small tea cup. It was so incredibly thick. The one that John got was dark chocolate and it was thick like puddling... but so AMAZINGLY good. Our waitress (it's a part chocolate store and part chocolate cafe) said that if you wanted to take it home and refrigerate it, it turns into mousse.

John has the biggest sweet tooth. EVER. I mean it's so hilarious and I love it. He had to get chocolates too. I thought we were going to have them to go... but no... we had to try them there.

While on vacation in NYC with John... I was eating something at every place we went. I mean, it started to hurt. Lol. But... awww man... everything was so good.
