#4: be more beautiful

this is my fourth tattoo. i had it done mirrored under my left collar bone, so it looks like gibberish unless you look at it in a mirror. i liked the idea of it being an open secret that i had. everyone can see it, but only i can understand it. after all, very few people will see my bare shoulders. (yes, i'm a prude)
i had it done on monday 19th as a reward to myself for getting through the first half of my senior year. i'd been thinking about it for a while, and i'm glad that i got it done. 
do you guys have any tattoo? what do they mean to you?

Soundtrack Saturday: Call Your Girlfriend

Soundtrack Saturday: Call Your Girlfriend -Robyn
have not done a soundtrack saturday post in WAY too long, but i've been having a good week and i felt like celebrating a bit. what better way to do that than with music?

i've love robyn as a musician for a long time. her music is amazing, and it's that perfect mix of all the genres you just love. if you saw SNL last weekend, then you might have seen Robyn perform this very song. It's basically about asking the guy you love to admit to his girlfriend that he has feelings for you and leave her, but nicely. a little homewrecker-y, but it's a great song!

for this set, I really tried to emulate what little I know of Robyn's style. she's very electro-pop, and she tends to wear a lot glammed-up pedestrian items. think bedazzled denim!

i started with the bustier, jacket, and hot shorts. Robyn dances a lot on stage, and she' usually wearing some variation of this. I chose the bright salmon colour because I wanted to translate the song into more commercial fashion that I might actually wear. that is after all the purpose of this feature!

robyn is also a big fan of flatforms, but i despise the entire concept, so i went with these chic jeffery campbell "Lita" boots instead. they're beautiful, and they fit well into the glamrockpop theme.

the purple birkin is a fun addition of colour, but more of a novelty to the set. my favourite piece however is the gold stone ring. i'm a sucker for rings, and i haven't been able to go shopping for a while, so i'll be keeping my eye out for this one.

robyn has a great sense of individual style that a cross between every dominant style out right now. he music is amazing, and i love the direction her entire musical persona takes.

what about you? do you think my set is a good interpretation of the song? what did you like or not like?  what would you have done differently? what kind of style do you associate with the song? let me know in the comments below!

Angelina Jolie by Alexei Hay

So, I know that opinions are split on Angelina because of that whole home wrecking thing..... but  I love her. She just has such an enchanting face. I can't get over her. She's positively stunning, and her eyes just draw you in. I can't get over it.

Cover Wars: Kate Moss by Mert & Marcus for Vogue Paris

And Kate stuns again. It's not surprising, obviously, but it's fun to be reminded why certain models will always be at the top of the pack. when you can do what no one else does...

Fashion Film: Lea T. for Elle Brazil

here's a yummy fashion treat to start of your week. Transsexual model Lea T. stars in this dramatic fashion film for Elle Brazil. i'm so mesmerized by Lea's look, and I can't wait to see her dominate the mainstream. what about you? what do you think about fashion being more accepting of transexuals, and how do you feel about Lea's look in particular?
