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

Beautiful Prayer

Rumi

A magnificent quote from the distinguished Rumi. A beautifully descriptive image is left lingering in my mind’s eye… Envisioning lovers intertwined, connected, like wild birds freely mating as they float across the majestic crystal blue sky.

Shivers & Goosebumps

Every once in a while a band comes along that BLOWS. YOUR. MIND… & SOUL.  Efterklang is one of those bands!

A Danish group–based in Berlin–this dynamic 3-man collaboration crafts musical magic… Cool synths, heavy bass beats, horns, and beautiful yet eerie vocals, Efterklang is a unique band with an original sound. When performing live the band grows to include more musical talent than should be legal! Here, I have included a short video featuring a live radio performance in Vienna where their songs Between The Walls, Black Summer & The Ghost are rendered beautifully and majestically… Luxurious builds, haunting harmonies & brassy undertones… Enjoy!!

Idefix, My Heart

I have a darling little pup… Idefix! He is a Maltese/Yorkie mix and I simply ADORE him…to pieces! I have posted pictures of Idefix before, but it has been far too long since his sweet little face has graced the pages of StonerChic… I wanted to give you a brief bio on this loving, tender soul I call Idi-Bidi-Boo.

Idefix came into my life about 2 years ago at 8 weeks old. He had my heart from the moment I laid eyes on him. I loved how his kind, button eyes gazed into my soul and from that moment on, I knew he was meant to be apart of my life. I was enduring the trials & tribulations of a disheveling break up, and although I was experiencing loss in one realm of my life, a new, abundant and joyous life was emerging during this tumultuous transition. It is true what they say about dogs, they surely are a Man’s, or in this case a Woman’s, BEST friend. From one change to the next Idi has stood by my side on all fours! Happy to see me everyday and night, he has blessed my life in more ways than I can imagine– always providing unconditional love & support, as well as giggles and kisses beyond belief :)

Now a “big kid,” Idefix is 2 years and a few months, and I am so pleased with how he has matured into a loving, calm, genuine, kind soul. He is my furry friend, my hairy son, who I love to the moon + back… I am proud to be Idefix’ momma! As far as style is concerned, idefix is the best accessory, as he adds flair, spunk and fun to any outfit!

Enjoy the gallery of Idefix pictures and feel free to share any fuzzy, warm thoughts about your four-legged friends!!

This is the reality we live: aspiring to be at our best, longing for and sometimes finding meaning and connection within ourselves and with that which is larger than ourselves; we are undone by messy bathrooms, traffic jams and burnt toast. I am not interested in spirituality that cannot encompass my humanness. Because beneath the small daily trials are harder paradoxes, things the mind cannot reconcile but the heart must hold if we are to live fully: profound tiredness and radical hope; shattered beliefs and relentless faith; the seemingly contradictory longings for personal freedom and deep commitment to others, for solitude and intimacy, for the ability to simply be with the world and the need to change what we know is not right about how we are living.

Shoe Obsession: The Bicolor Wedges

From London’s East Side comes Atalanta Weller, the very talented shoe designer who has been steadily captivating her global fan base over the past four years. Drawing inspirations from Ziggy Stardust, Louise Brooks and a variety of animal prints, her beautiful designs elevate her to the status of a true artist. Browsing on Pinterest, I found this gem from her 2011 collection. Although two years old, these amazing Bicolor wedges are still on-trend today, perhaps because her designs are so cutting edge and ahead of the times. The blend of neutral camel suede and sexy black leather makes for an absolutely stunning shoe. Because of the simple-yet-chic mixture of textures and colors, these stylish shoes can be worn to compliment a multitude of different outfits. Pair them with black skinny jeans, a bright chiffon top, and plenty of chunky jewelry for an effortlessly polished look. Or, glam them up with a sexy mini dress and a top-knot bun for a night out. The perfectly placed peek-a-boo cut-outs on the top of the shoe work to lengthen the line of your leg by showing off just the right amount of skin on your feet, making this the ideal wedge bootie for any body-type, any style and any outfit. These adorable and sophisticated wedges will complete any look while making your gams look flawless!
