Designer Admiration: Furne One/ Amato Couture

So another fabulous fashion week has come to a close here in Los Angeles. The stunning Vibiana Cathedral in downtown played host yet again to Style Fashion Week's festivities. Having attended their events over the past couple of years it is exciting to see how quickly and smoothly they've become a mainstay for new and established designers alike.  SFW presented 17 runway shows over the span of five days as well as a special evening with GenArt and their "Fresh Faces in Fashion" designer showcase and trunk show. Sounds by DJ Paper kept the crowded courtyard of bloggers, designers, stylists, photographers, musicians and fashion insiders upbeat as they mingled effortlessly. Friday October 19th marked the last night of S/S 2013 previews, appropriately topped off by Dubai based designer Furne One with his ever impressive and boundary pushing line,  Amato Haute Couture. While not for the everyday consumer (unless you want something special to roam the aisles of your local supermarket in...very discreet) his gowns are works of art you desperately wish you could slip into. Take a peek below at some of the evening's highlights

gilded opulence
 Did you see the spiked crystal headpieces amidst all that fantasticness?... simply divine

New Music Monday 10.22.12

My ears have been starved until now. Thanks to the new Ipod commercial today I have taken in a new delightful sound that has me desperate to either break dance or scream and wail like a teenage girl. For those of you who have yet to witness the dapper young gentleman known as Willy Moon indulge now. His sound is reminiscent of Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly finessed with the heaviest studio beats and seriously criminal electric guitar that makes you want to be right there next to him dancing so awkwardly it's amazing ...ahhhh calm down, calm down. Click here for the audio of his song "Yeah Yeah" that had me at hello or check out the video below that will seal your fate entirely. A true wolf in sheep's clothing with a voice like that.

...told you so.

October Market Rewind- Spring Preview

Well hello there good lookin. October Market came and went like Missoni for Target. While just as colorful and visually encompassing, this was just the beginning of our Socialite Spring 2013 line. We have an arsenal of fabulosity still coming off the sewing machines everyday for your eager closets try and remain calm. 
I know it's fall and time for spiked riding boots, faux fur everything, and praise the fashion grandmas who paved the way, boucle is back!...but, with that being said, I cannot wait for the embroidered rompers, eyelet tanks, flowing dresses and bright washes comprising all my outfits...sigh* 

Until then we shall wear them proudly as we roam about the office like old Miss Havisham.

New Music Monday 8.13.12

Good Morning Beautiful faces. Time to rise and shine and greet the afternoon with new music by Mr. Little Jeans, a.k.a. Monica Birkenes. This Norwegian delight introduced herself by covering Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs" in a deliciously dark electro pop way that transforms the song into something completely different and entrancing. Her new single "Runaway" is off of her yet to be released debut album titled after none other but herself due later this summer.

Listen with caution, I currently want to expel myself from this office chair and bask in the sunshine at the beach... 3 Hour lunch anyone?
