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!

Fashion Myth Debunked

When it comes to fashion advice, there is plenty out there… From Marie Claire to Vogue to In Style– fashion magazines suggest what to wear and how to rock it!

Lately, however, it has become increasingly clear to me that style is a means of self expression where your personal creativity of spirit is meant to shine!

Although I still find some useful tidbits here & there, I prefer to dress for m y s e l f.

That is why this post is all about debunking fashion myths… Particularly, the most common of them all: that black & navy OR black & brown DON’T mix. Fashion Blasphemy! 

Now don’t get me wrong. Trend tracking by the experts is fabulous… It helps guide us through all the style choices to be made as seasons fly by and new looks emerge… Yet after all is said and done, no one but YOU can chose what to wear, how to wear it, why and when!

Tired of being confined by fashion experts, I’m choosing to expand the possibilities… StonerChíc Rebellion, Done Right!!!!

I’ve included a killer gallery of further proof that Navy & Black or Brown & Black actually do work well together by creating richness in color & texture, while adding an element of drama and sophistication. It doesn’t matter how you chose to rock this look!  A simple accessory such as a smashing belt, a luscious handbag or a stellar pair of shoes can add just the right amount of depth to an all black look; otherwise, color-blocking is a fantastic option, taking the style further by creating a dynamic look where various patterns and textures can be used to spruce up an everyday black ensemble…

Behold the possibilities to be worn! xoxo SC

Pretty In Punk

Long Live Vivienne Westwood: Queen of Punk!

As a Punk & New Wave fashion innovator, Vivienne Westwood created an exquisite synthesis between clothing & music. 

Shaping her designs around this aforementioned union gave birth to the 1970’s PUNK FASHION SCENE. Collaborating with Malcolm McLaren of the Sex Pistols made this transformation possible as his influence directly correlated with Vivienne’s vision. Westwood was interested in “seeing if one could put a spoke in the system.” Thus creating styles that revered anarchy and chaos– as a means to express self identity without compromising to the attachments or obligations of the greater social schema… Political Fashion Indeed! 

Vivienne drew from various looks to construct her Punk Collection: BDSM Fashion; Bondage gear & attire; Safety pins; Razor blades; Bicycle chains on clothing; Spiked dog collars as jewelry; Crazy Hair (mow-hawks) & Heavy Makeup (thick eyeliner). Additionally, Westwood sought to make the traditional elements of style seem risqué, using fabrics such as tartan to add dimension, texture & further shock value.

Leading the pack as trend setter, and always maintaing the cutting edge, Vivienne Westwood’s creations have had transformative, metamorphic effects on fashion. A Sophisticated Rebel, Vivienne epitomizes the StonerChíc mentality … XoXo!

Back It Up

I adore an adorable backpack!

An adaptable accessory that can be worn with a variety of looks–especially for a girl on the go– the backpack is resourceful while adding an element of comfort. Instead of always schlepping around a heavy oversized handbag with all of your daily necessities, the backpack comes in handy since you can choose to wear it on one or both shoulders as you easily store many of your girly goodies…

Knapsacks come in a multitude of stylish prints, patterns, colors and materials; embellished with leather, hardware, zippers and woven fabric. Searching on pinterest  I found some of my favorite rucksacks… These bags would be great for an exciting Saturday cruising the city streets!

Pick out your most coveted cary-all, you are sure to love your backpack for all of life’s little StonerChíc adventures!!

Minkoff-tacular, Wang-A-Licious, Whole-Lotta-Hoffman

Earlier this month was the ever alluring New York Fashion Week.

A fantastical time of year where creative spirits collide in a frenzied week of fun, fashion, flirtation, & fabulousness!

Scanning the images of various stylish runway fashion shows I came across my all time favorites! I’ve included looks from all three designers: Rebecca Minkoff, Alexander Wang & Mara Hoffman.

I love the versatile looks created in all these fashion forward collections.

Specifically, however, the colors & prints found in both the Minkoff & Hoffman collections speak directly to my style esthetic. I just love how bold & bright their designs are!

As for Alexander Wang, his Spring line is daring.  An edgy exploration of menswear inspired fashion, made with the most delicious feminine twist and a lusciously simple color palette; featuring structured  pieces to be combined with your favorite everyday looks or put-together for a work-friendly, business approach or finally, dolled up for a glamorous night out!

Get carried away with these whimsical fashion designs! Enjoy!

Supermodel Seduction

The 90’s were a blast!

Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Linda Evangelista, Kate MossStephanie Seymour: Supermodel Icons at the height of their fashion careers…

Fabulous, stylish & glamorous, these babes epitomized effortless and natural beauty. Not only were each one of these women drop dead gorgeous, they each possessed a unique personality, making them witty, charismatic and loveable.

Seemingly untouchable, these stunning ladies acted as though they were exclusive members of a Pretty Girls Only club… And they were! Together these fashion divas were unstoppable– their faces graced the covers of every fashion magazine of the 90’s; while they all took turns playing dress up for the best fashion designers of the time, walking the catwalk with elegance & poise.

A tribute to the flawless 90’s Supermodel… An era of sexual fashion curiosity, portrayed by the biggest names in Supermodel history!
