Come Hither

Lingerie is tricky. Sometimes, ironically, the organic sexiness is lost in the midst of trying so hard to be sexy. Lingerie should feel special but not forced. These sets by Anthropologie toe that line perfectly with their vintagey, padding-free design. There is no "we-are-about-to-do-it" pretense to ruin the actual doing-it.
I have always, and will always refer to sex as "doing-it".
Use protection.

Spring Essential

I just love when a simple chain-store gets it right. Gap really hit the nail on the head with this classic-yet-hip faded motorcycle jacket. This is the kind of multi-functional wardrobe piece that really gets me goin'. I'm seeing it with silky floral dresses, mens-wear pants, ball gowns, sweat pants etc.
 Oh yeah, and I'll prolly throw it over my dog, Gracie McSnarlySnort, just to have a laugh.

Shutthefrontdoor! Is that a fur skirt?

This is one furry-ass skirt y'all!
This was designed by Opening Ceremony for the premiere of Where The Wild Things Are. On their website it says that it is "available in bull fur", which I took to imply that it's also available in faux-fur. Either way fur is really riding a wave right now- fur vests especially are popping up everywhere. I think it's interesting in a cavewoman-meets-rich-girl sort of way.
I couldn't help but style this for both Spring and Fall. I tried to make both looks as street-smart and comfortable as possible since the skirt is so... carnal.

Lisbeth Salander

For those of you who haven't read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo or The Girl Who Played with Fire, by the late Stieg Larsson- Go. Go now. Read them. First read this, then read them.
I devoured them both in a matter of days and am currently waiting, with baited breath, for The Girl who Kicked The Hornets Nest
Lisbeth Salander is the heroine of these books. She's a socially-retarded-hacker-genius who kills bad guys and does other stuff that I won't reveal....
Salander dresses uber-punk and has a couple of tattoos, the most defining of which is actually a wasp tattoo (the dragon tattoo is whatever).
I couldn't find any wasp-themed accessories to put in here. Someone needs to get crackin' on the wasp shit immediately!
Yeah, that is a taser gun. She uses it a lot.
Salander would think this blog was so lame.
