Honoring John

John Winston Lennon, born on October 9th, 1940 in Liverpool, England, UK.

An iconic, renowned & admired musician the world over!

Honoring John today, and everyday, because of his whimsical, yet pragmatic vision of peace, love & understanding. A true humanitarian, John revolutionized rock/pop music by creating a platform for open communication… His music, his artistry, his power all from deep within his heart.

It saddens me to think of John not being here with us today. I know he wouldn’t want us to lament his passing, but instead make joy of the life he so graciously led… Sometimes I imagine going to see Lennon play live… or picking up his latest cd… All a beautiful, twisted dream.

May John’s sweet, humble soul rest forever in peace among the angels!

Love, StonerChíc

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!

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!!

Hat Head

Hats! Hats! Hats!

I LOVE Hats!

Fun, stylish, sexy, mysterious, hipster, chic, and the list goes on…

Wear them with dresses, skirts, jeans or trousers, this bold fashion accessory adds glamour to any outfit…

No better companion for textured, cozy sweaters or layered jewels, hats also look effortless with simple looks: dark denim & a white tee or your favorite sexy black dress…

Step out of your comfort zone and try a hat on with your next outfit! Once you find the one that fits your style and feels good on you, there is no holding back… Have fun, get creative and dare to be confident & sassy!!

I have chosen a series of pictures that combines various fashion stylings, all paired with the simple and refined HAT.

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.
