Shoe fetish ♥

The LD Tuttle dusty grey platform wedge boot are simply breathtaking, from the architectural leather-covered wedge sole to the striking slouch of the ankle... available at Oak.com....

To complete the architectural look of the boots, I would love to give it a skeletal feel by paring them with cobweb Leggings (Topshop), slashed mini skirt by maurie (I don't like Mondays), skeleton rib bag (PixieMarket), Rib-cage tank, leather studded wrap bracelet (both Urban Outfitters), Multi Stone cuff and tassel hoop earings (both Topshop).

The Cheap Monday AW 2010 collection gives an apocalyptic impression but with a sense of hope for the future; holes are mended and scarring is used as decoration. Razorblade slashes are repaired on both denim and jersey, patches are used together with spray paint and coatings in rough detailing. A rawness and nomadicity referring to futurism and punk suggests a DIY aesthetic. (via)

and I would love to give the softness of this dress a hard edge by paring it with a Rick Owen's leather jacket, Fishnet tights (Topshop), Zip Mix Shoulder Bag, fringe detail boots (both Urban Outfitters) and Cabouchon drop earrings (All Saints).

5 Days of Updos - Day 2

I pincurled my STRAIGHT hair really tightly the night before with a new twist on an old fave...
Usually I use the regular Mango Butter Moisturizer without the olive oil, but this new version is a lot smoother and leaves my hair a lot softer (if you can imagine that) than the older one I used to use. Anyway I used the Olive Oil/Mango Butter Moisturizer to moisturize my hair before setting it in small pin curls. Then I pinned the top half up.


I was in Indianapolis that day for a conference. I only packed a carry-on, so I couldn't really carry a lot of products, so I took a tiny jar full of moisturizer and some hair pins. Sometimes you don't need a lot to make it look like you did a lot to your hair =)

Real Talk, I've Been a Little...Busy.


Okay I need to be straight with my Feisties for a minute--

My free time has been non-existent this month, and you all can probably tell by the lack of posts. Sigh...

I usually post to the blog when I'm at work, but I just have not had the time! My boss went on vacation, so I was running the entire department--by myself. I've been going in early, and coming home late. Now that she's back...let's just say she's in no rush to take stuff off my plate -__-

I love to blog. Really, I do. I am going to do better. I've already recorded a new product review video, and I'm about to record a tutorial tonight. Tonight something clicked--I need to make time for my creative outlets, and blogging is definitely one of them. I'm getting back to all the things I love--music, art, hair, reading. I refuse to lose myself to my 9-to-5 (though lately it's been the 9-to-8).

I'm excited about the month of August, and how different things are going to be from here on out. Sorry to be so MIA.

XOXO!
Koos =)

I'm having a sudden realisation that my overwhelming lust for leather and studs is no wear near an end, as when I came across these Penelope and Coco Capone Boots (even the name is heart-stirring) at Shop Diavolina my heart raced with excitement (sad I know but true), yet of course it sank immediatly when I stumbled onto the price tag of $484, but ohhh yes feel a definite DIY project blooming....

Shakuhachi

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_twYmnhXVfP4/TFGqi8o0hrI/AAAAAAAAKnQ/g_klx3lR1I4/s1600/shakuhachi.jpg
I just recently came across four year old Australian brand Shakuhachi and well with its youthful feel, its acid-wash denim and obvious Alexander Wang inspirations, how could I not fall in love?
...Shakuhachi means 'bamboo flute' in Japanese....

I look forward to seeing shots of the Fa11 2010 collection, to be posted November 18th.
