It’s All About The Memories

It arrived in the mail today from France, and a wave of nostalgia waved over me while ripping off the plastic wrapping as a distinct scent hit my nostrils.  The scent immediately reminded me of fresh new yearbooks at the end of the school year.  Back then I couldn’t wait to flip through those pages containing all the greatest memories of the year, and I certainly didn’t wait to jump into “All Gone: The Finest of Street Culture 2012” today.


Just like our yearbooks, “All Gone” features something for every stereotype in school plus so much more!











and my personal favorite, MEAN GIRLS:



Now there’s no way I would ever be able to acquire everything in this book just like I don’t talk to about 90% of my high school friends, but years from now I know I’ll enjoy flipping through memories.  Now if I could just get all the designers/collaborators/artists to sign my All Gone yearbook!

Red book limited to 750 copies and already sold out online.  Black limited to 1250 copies and can still be purchased here.

Zoom Kobe 8

Every Christmas for the past few seasons, the new Nike Zoom Kobe Bryant Signature Shoe has officially debuted on Christmas Day.  The NBA has Christmas games all day now,  however, back then they only featured one or two games.  With the Lakers being one of the marquee teams in the NBA, and even in worldwide sports, they play 99.9999% of the time on Xmas.  And with us being LA Laker homers, we had to feature this years Kobe XMas edition.  As with the previous four signature Kobe shoes, two pairs release at Xmas.  One is a blk/yellow colorway that sees a general release, while there is the more limited wacky XMas themed shoe Kobe will wear for the Xmas game.  Of course we’ll show you the more “limited” colorway!  The new model comes in at svelte 9.6 oz (which rivals the weight for running shoes).  The shoe features an interchangeable Lunarlon insole, with an upper made of engineered mesh.  The XMas edition comes with an upper that has been “inspired” by Christmas Lights!  They drop XMas morning at select online retailers and Nike accounts..  Don’t blink, because these will be gone in seconds!KOBE_8_Sketch2_detail KOBE_8_Sketch3_detail nike-kobe-8-christmas-02-570x378 nike-kobe-8-christmas-05-570x378 nike-kobe-8-christmas-08-570x378 nike-kobe-8-system-christmas

A Shot In The Dark

‘Tis the season for holiday party hopping. Whether it be with coworkers, family, or friends good times are guaranteed, but so is a little (or a lot of) drama. You know you want to have a good time, but let’s be serious you don’t want your boss or religious Aunt Remy seeing you down that second martini and thinking you’re a lush.
What better way to secretly take the edge off than Cynthia Rowley’s Flask Bangle! How simply genius/gorgeous is this???




One question remains… How many vodka filled bangles can you wear per wrist before you can’t lift your arms?

Purchase here for your favorite party girl.

It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

No, I’m not talking about Christmastime (though that seriously popped up on us with the quickness).  Jump ahead a few months to cooler summer nights and warm fall days.  I could’ve sworn there are only 4 seasons in the year, but somehow our beloved designers have found a way to squeeze in more shows and spreads for us to lust after.  And I ain’t mad at them.  Introducing a splattering from Pre-Fall 2013:

Fall fashion has always been my favorite, but now a whole new season of collections may be preceding it in more ways than one.

A Resting Place For Your Nike Heads

You’ve probably figured out by now that I’m a chick that’s into sneakers, especially Nikes. This love started way back in the 80s and 90s. Back before the $600 Isabel Marant wedge sneaker and back before Balenciaga or Lanvin started studding and snake skinning them up. My first true loves were the Air Max: AM1, 90, 95, 97, the list goes on and on but I don’t want to bore you with my stories of romance and heartache. Then of course you can’t be a true sneaker fiend without some J’s; the III’s being my personal favorites.
Fast forward to today. Retros here, there and everywhere. Don’t get me wrong, I love that the classics are coming back around for the young generations to appreciate, but dare I say it’s getting a little played?
Thank goodness the design geniuses at MSTRPLN have come up with the solution. A new twist on our beloved Nike classics that only true enthusiasts would recognize at first glance.
