I may need more feathers in my life…
I’m always on the hunt for cool t-shirts, made from luxurious types of silky cotton. Here are my favs right now. Click on a shirt for more info…
I have always admired photographer Tim Walker’s special take on fashion photography, and I love the way he references and honors Cecil Beaton and Irving Penn. This video interview is a special treat worth sharing.
I am loving tie dye right now. Less hippie rainbow and more like Japanese Shibori technique, the fabric and colors are much cooler these days.
A long way from this:
And this (Ack!!):

I am thinking very seriously about buying these rad Alice & Olivia floral pants. Although I would style them differently and pair them with a white T by Alexander Wang tee, half tucked, very slouchy cardi or Rag & Bone jean jacket, messy hair and big sunglasses.
Is it crazy that I want these pants? Maybe I just want Spring to arrive in full force..
It’s indeed here, the last day of 2011. Time to don your best sparkly tights, drink too much champagne, and then work it off at the gym tomorrow. Time to make all sorts of promises of less of this and more of that, and see how long that sticks. I have added an easy resolution to the obligatory ones, which is to read the famous Herman Melville novel, “Moby Dick”. I have seen every movie adaption, and I believe while very good, they are all probably, missing the boat. If you love astrology as much as I, you must read your horoscope for the week from the illustrious Rob Brezsny, he is truly poetic. A very Happy New Year to you and yours.
Here’s a sumptuous new Cecily Brown painting called “The Hunter”, and a New Year’s Eve outfit inspired by it. If you click on the image you can view it larger, and really get caught up in the action of the painting.

I kind of need these…
And you know I am not waiting for spring to wear them. I’ll wear them right now with this:
Who says you can’t wear flowers in December? Oh by the way…I am mildly addicted to instagram now, look me up @chrissystyles.
I think this about sums it up…
I’d rather put these on…
I don’t know if it’s because I wear an ugly pin cushion on my wrist stuffed with safety pins for catalog jobs, or if I am just slightly obsessed with certain portions of punk style, but I love safety pins….and I want safety pin earrings. I don’t want ACTUAL safety pins in my ears, but I want nice jewelry made to look like safety pins for my ears. So here are my options, and I like them, and I am sharing them with you in case you have a direct line with Santa.
Rachel Rachel Roy jet black crystal earrings $26 (I know they seem suspiciously cheap but my friend swears if you paint clear nail polish on unknown metal earrings your ears will never know the diff.) Also come in gold tone with clear stones.
Tom Binns sterling silver dangle earrings $154. 2.5 inches long, streamline, pretty, niiiiice…
Giles & Brother tiny studs $75. Cool, and cute, man. for the every day girl who wants to remind you that she aint no diamond stud gal.
Tom Binns punk chic earrings $230. Don’t think I’m not going to hit Pearl Paint this weekend before the ‘ole holiday party and buy myself some day glo yellow paint and get to spraying some safety pins….(although I see some regrets in my future as I hide my yellow hands behind my back at said party)
My favorite safety pin earrings are by Genevieve Jones. The shape is small and beautiful and they come in all different colored metals, with and without stones. You can buy them at L-Atitude, but they seem to be running out fast, so if you are as hooked as I am, hurry…they range from $275-$575
