DearDaisy.



Love this spread of Daisy Lowe in Future Claw


She looks so perfectly natural.  It's refreshing to see a model that isn't completely stick thin.

The styling and the makeup is just right.



Love that they put her in these sunglasses!...same as mine signature glasses that my sis got me for my birthday last year.
Also used them in my look book for Spring 2010 as well!

This photo is channeling a look that I've been thinking of messing around with for Fall or Spring (haven't decided).  I've been collecting all these photos that have a vibe similar to this and I absolutely love it.
<3

She is a big supporter of Spanish Moss Vintage as well!
Gotta love her for that.

She reminds me so much of a childhood friend.
Kinda just made me sad :(

Anyhow, great spread.

TheAnthem.

Salt N' Pepa
"None of Your Business"



What's the matter with your life?
Why you gotta mess with mine?
Don't keep sweatin' what I do
'Cuz I'm gonna be just fine, check it out

If I wanna take a guy home with me tonight
It's none of yo business
And if she wanna be a freak and sell it on the weekend
It's none of yo business
Now you, shouldn't even get into who I'm givin' skins to
It's none of yo business
So don't try, to change my mind, I'll tell you one more time
It's none of yo business

Now who do you think you are
Puttin' your cheap two cents in?
Don't you got nothin' to do
Than worry about my friends? Check it
I can't do nothin', girl, without somebody buggin'
I used to think that it was me, but now I see it wasn't

They told me to change, they called me names and so I popped one
Opinion's are like a**holes and everybody's got one
I never put my nose where I'm not supposed to
Believe me, if he's something that I want, I'm steppin' closer
I'm not one for playing high-pole
Like the house of ditty nine O two one O type of the ho

I treat a man like he treats me
The difference between a hooker and a ho ain't nothin' but a fee
So hold your tongue tightly, wish you could be like me
You're poppin' all that mess only to stress and to spite me
Now you can get with that or you can get with this
But I don't give a s**t 'cuz really it's none of your business

1993, S and P, packin' and makin'
Bamboozlin' and smackin' suckers with this track and
Throw the beat back in

If I wanna take a guy home with me tonight
It's none of yo business
And if she wanna be a freak and sell it on the weekend
It's none of yo business
Now you, shouldn't even get into who I'm givin' skins to
It's none of yo business
So don't, try to change my mind, I'll tell you one more time
It's none of yo business

How many rules am I to break before you understand
That your double-standards don't mean s**t to me?
I know exactly what you say when I turn and walk away
But that's okay 'cuz I don't let it get it to me
Now every move I make somebody's clockin'
Don't ask me nothin', will you just leave me alone?
Never mind who's the guy that I took home to bone

Okay, miss thing never givin' up skins
If you don't like him or his friends what about that Benz?
Your Pep-Pep's got an ill rep
With all that macaroni trap for rap you better step
Or better yet get your head checked
'Cuz I refuse to be played like a penny cent trick deck of cards
No, I ain't hard like the b**ches on a boulevard
My face ain't scarred and I don't dance in bars

You can call me a tramp if you want to
But I remember the punk who just humped and dumped you
Or you can front if you have to
But everybody gets horny just like you
So, yo, so, yo, ho, check it, double deck it on a record butt-naked
Punk a** disrespect, and this but it's none of your business

If I wanna take a guy home with me tonight
It's none of yo business
And if she wanna be a freak and sell it on the weekend
It's none of yo business
Now you, shouldn't even get into who I'm givin' skins to
It's none of yo business
So don't, try to change my mind, I'll tell you one more time
It's none of yo business

So the moral of this story is, who are you to judge?
There's only one true judge and that's God
So chill and let my Father do His job

The Salt-N-Pepa's got it swingin' again
The Salt-N-Pepa's got it swingin' again
The Salt-N-Pepa's got it swingin' again
...


Dem jeans.


Leather and chains.


90's times one million.


Where'd you get those boots gurrrrrrrl?!



They're going for it.





In case you didn't know, now you know.

Just sayin'.

ChloeInWonderland.







Russian Harper's Bazaar







Courtesy of Refinery29





I've been in love with Alice in Wonderland since I was pretty damn young.  
If I could have stalked Lewis Carrol, I might have.  
I did so many reports on him when I was in high school.  His real name is Charles Dodgson...Lewis Carrol is just his pen name.
I studied his poetry...and used to write poems using a specific style that he would write in called 
Acrostic poetry. 
You name it.  
I'm obsessed.

I completely endure every second of fashion when Alice in Wonderland becomes its muse.

And, of course, to have Chloe play Alice is easy on the eyes...although the original/actual Alice (Alice Liddell) had short dark hair.


This is Edith, Lorina, and Alice Liddell.
Sooo cute, right?
Not sure if Dodgson took this photo, but here are some that he did take...


Though he claims that his character, Alice, isn't based on an actual child, the acrostic poem at the end of "Through The Looking Glass" spells out her name....?
He has a pretty bad rap...his photography was/is highly controversial.  People labeled him as a pedophile for his interest in photographing little girls/children, but who knows...it was never proved.  Maybe he just liked photographing small people...?  The children's parents were almost always present.
???
I don't know, but Alice looks tired in that last one.
Early call time or what?
