Top Gun

Top Gun Jumpsuit -

Every time I look at this jumpsuit the theme to Top Gun starts running through my head. Now that I mentioned it you’re humming it too, aren’t you? Sorry?   In the UK they call these onesies a boiler suit. What ever you call it, it’s comfy, fun, and brings back memories for me. Some […]

Groovy -

Ever since the release of the SS 2015 collections, I knew I would be headed in a 70s direction with my wardrobe this year. I’m not talking about a boho festival look (I’ve done that to death in years past). I’m talking about a “Groovy Baby” Austin Powers meets Disco kind of direction. Give me […]
