Magical Island of Treasure & Music

This year I attended the Treasure Island Music Festival on Saturday October 19th. It was my very first time & it was *MAGICAL* 

Good friends, good music, good times!

As it was my first time at this music festival, I really liked and appreciated the chill atmosphere! With spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay & Skyline, there is arguably no better setting to watch live music! An intimate feeling, although among a substantial crowd, this setting may seem unattractive to some but the perks are in watching live acts without any overlap. Besides, the energy of the crowd is magnetic and adds to the overall live music experience! Additionally, Treasure Island Music Festival provides an array of joyous and creative activities for the festival goer. One can shake their groove thang at the Silent Disco, make daisy chain hairpieces, watch as artists work on mural sized displays, get their face painted and plenty more!!

A highly recommended Music Festival, peep the pictures below to get an idea… some shots are taken by yours truly, others by noted photographers… Enjoy!

Stoner Chíc Essence

Wanting to keep up with the theme from my earlier post on definitely MIXING navy & black, I made sure to wear an outfit styled in such a manner for last night’s outing.

My Hubby & I went to Bimbo’s 365 Club to see Junip play. They’re a Swedish band with a stellar, psychedelic, heavy sound featuring Jose Gonzalez’s soothingly dynamic vocals.

A few pics of the show & one of my ‘fit– in true Stoner Chíc style!

ps. the name of this blog is based on the shenanigans of a wild & blurry night partying with friends… we took a gazillion pictures and by far our favorite shots where in which our heads had been severed and only our bodies in action, sporting fabulous fits, could be seen. we termed pictures of this nature  “stoner chíc” since they possessed an alluring and mystifying quality inspired by movement and good-looking clothing.

Artistically Inclined

Walking home yesterday I stumbled across  a charming little art gallery on Valencia Street, SF: Incline Gallery.

A unique setting of ramps and volume with plenty of natural light, the space that encapsulates this contemporary art gallery works towards cultivating local, community growth among visual and performative  artists.

Lovingly and delicately curated, I highly suggest popping into Incline Gallery. You are sure to find tranquility amidst busy urban living…

Fashion Inspiration of The Day

Free People Fall Shoes

I found this FAB photo of some scrumptious shoes while peeping the Free People website. Instantly I began to ponder the various outfit opportunities!

Cute everyday boots made of distressed suede in the most perfect and versatile color: Slate. Accentuated by the very best caramel toned leather straps… Pair these Paperback Ankle Boots with some dark denim skinnies, a cozy oversized sweater in a luscious winter cream & add some fabulous, punchy accessories to personalize, as well as brighten up, the look– picture a colorful arm of bracelets, a few gemstone pendants dangling around your neck and small or medium hoop earrings…

Next up: the Desoto Cut Out Oxford. If you feel like keeping it posh while still rocking just the littlest bit of edge, this is the shoe for you! These high-shine flats are sophisticated and polished; an updated nod to the ever classic brogue design. When I saw these beauties my mind immediately thought they would be the perfect pair of Oxfords to wear with a crisp, classic, white button-down blouse & a sleek, sexy black pencil skirt; keeping the accessories simple and refined, with pearl or diamond studs and a few dainty necklaces…

The Lonesome Fringe Ankle Boot & the Perspective Heel are two adventurous style choices! If you are down to wear these fancy feet around town, by all means: GOD SPEED Personally, I find these two pairs to be striking. It’s hard to go unnoticed when your shoes have personality & charm that stands all on their own! With the alluring peep-toe, lace-up sandal I am compelled to throw on a textured mini dress (fab pattern or embellishments, please!) while wearing the bare minimum in accessories; brazen without going overboard… As far as the fringed bootie is concerned, this is a spunky & sassy style choice that is much easier to weave into everyday fashion planning. Wear these boots with leggings, a flowy tunic and make sure to incorporate some Native American inspired accessories: feathers, gems, animal talismans, you get the idea…

No matter what shoe best describes your fashion esthetic & identity, wear them with confidence and pride! You look fabulous, sassy, classy, sexy, spunky, funky & fresh in everything you do, BELIEVE IT!!!!

lots o’ love, StonerChíc

Fab Faux Finds

This Fall the new trend is eco-friendly, animal-conscious, faux, vegan leather goods…  Leggings, jackets, dresses, vests & more! Thick, rich, and decadent vegan leather gives any outfit instant sex appeal and edge. Think: rock n’ roll chíc mixed in with a little wonder-woman/dominatrix…. The style is smooth, skin-tight, and flattering; showing off all the right curves and giving your confidence an extra peak as you  s t r u t  your stuff!

Some of my favorite, most coveted vegan leather pieces are from Sanctuary Clothing. The maidens of design have come back with yet another sophisticated, modern, LA inspired take on vintage clothing; comprising of elegant and sexy ready-to-wear staple pieces. Effortless and cool, I adore the Sanctuary Mixed Vegan Legging–made in a fabulous combination of vegan leather panels covering the frontside (like chaps! in a good way)… while the backside is a beefy, stable Ponte Knit– which is thick and luxe, providing a beautiful, flattering shape that is sure to keep your lady parts well covered and looking flawless! These leggings are radical– paired with sky-high heels, a sultry blouse and some crystals, this outfit just begs to be worn out on the town!

Additionally, the Rebel Vest by Sanctuary and the Hooded Bomber Jacket by Thread & Supply are fantastic additions to this ever-growing faux leather (insert: vegan!) trend. Worn nicely with  jeans or a dress, these outerwear items are perfect. The Rebel Vest has zippers and snap closures that give you instant pop, rock glam, while the Hooded Bomber Jacket is another wonderful design: casual and urban. A great look for Fall, the jacket and vest can be worn in the daytime with denim and a simple tee, or for nigh time fun with a sexy black dress.

Below you will find these items styled to perfection, providing just the right amount of fashion creativity & inspiration… Dare to try something new, it may suit you!

Be bold, be beautiful, be different, be YOU! Hugs & Kisses, StonerChíc

Star Power

Star*Light*Star*Bright!

Starry*Eyed!

*DIAMONDS* in the SKY!

Seeing*Stars! 

For as long as I can remember, stars have always been a theme throughout my life… A symbol that has come up time and again, magical and luminous!

I truly believe we are all made of stars, and thus connected to the greater universe, waiting to shine, for our time so we can tap into our own brilliance, for the feeling of STAR POWER. Not some trite Hollywood celebrity bull… But the POWER that comes from harnessing our own conviction and confidence toward the direction of our dreams! For me, that’s what Star Power is ALL about. These celestial beauties comprise our universe, of which we are apart of, and thus they represent our deepest desires… Those dreams, hopes and aspirations that feel so far away, they are almost unattainable… Until one day, you can see with clarity, your eyes sparkle, and inside you KNOW you have exactly what you need within YOU to make the most of what you wish for YOUR LIFE.

Needing to tap into that energy myself these days, as I am facing changes and transitions that are challenging, but  just as they should be at this point in my life, I find myself holding onto the image of a glimmering, glittering STAR. I feel its warmth and radiant glow on my cheek, and from within… Instantly, I know I am good. Life is good. This constant reminder to love the life we lead and to be grateful for the gifts we have, that is another blessing of STAR POWER.

Recently, to hold as an amulet, I had my dear friend Amanda, Owner of VOCE KEEN, design a custom Star Necklace. This gorgeous sterling silver pendant (pictured below) is a treasure, one that helps me channel my inner clarity and brilliance, so I can shine from within! Extra magical and juicy ju-ju when worn with the VK Crescent Moon Pendant ;)

Additionally, I am including the stunning Star Card from The Wild Unknown Tarot Deck collection. I love this hand crafted, made with love Tarot Deck. The energy and magic from this deck is enchanting! Every card reading I have done has lead me to connections, encounters and revelations that have been uplifting and surprising… I am truly grateful for the work of Kim Krans, who has poured her heart & soul, devoting her artistry, wonder, beauty and charm to the art of illustration & Tarot.

Craftsman & Wolves

You can never have too many coffee shops. Especially when the treats inside are as yummy as ever! Craftsman & Wolves on Valencia in the Mission District is an elegant nod to baked goods with the most unique and sophisticated flair. Flavorful breakfast pastries, cakes, confections, confitures, desserts, lunch and other sweet or savory delights can be had at this cool, chic location. I enjoy a mug of their Formosa Oolong Tea with either their Hazelnut Cake or Cocoa Carrot Muffin (and for savory goodies, The Rebel Within is truly all the hype…) In hindsight, nothing you eat here would ever do you or your taste buds wrong… Everything is decadent and perfectly luscious!

Cheers! SC

Interstellar Transmissions

Out and about in the San Francisco Mission District on a frenzied Saturday night, I was stoked to see this MAGICAL live music Party Bus!!!! Interstellar Transmissions provide a unique musical experience for the party goer. Aboard a revamped school bus, musicians Gavin McGowen, Nathan Wilson, Coda and Ishani Ishaya travel from state to state, city to city entertaining those who seek a one-of-a-kind, non-traditional, live music escapade! Peep the pics to be blown away by Interstellar Transmissions’ far out, far fetched idea! RADICAL !!!!
