Is it just me or is the fashion world being taken over once again by Western bandits? I only ask because on at least three occasions this month I have found myself staring at magazine editorials showing scenes stolen from the Western genre. My attitude has become more lenient towards so-called fashion modern classic themes such as this one. Western costumes and designs seem to unquestionably belong to our current culture of trends and keep disappearing and reappearing rapidly. Not a real novelty but still a powerful and exciting style which always convinces me to step out of my jewellery comfort zone. In my view, an abundance of turquoise and American Indian inspired bracelets and rings always looks luscious!
The styling in the first three pictures was done by Kate Lanphear of course and the rest of the pictures are from Vogue China February 2009.
I watched The Wrestler on Saturday night and Rourke’s performance brought tears to my eyes. Yes, I’m serious! I never thought that watching grown men with bad bleached blond long 80’s hair beating the shit out of each other would ever be fun but “The Ram” (for those of you who have seen the film) has a certain physicality that simply commands your full attention. The staple gun scene was totally and absolutely horrible to sit through, especially if you’re pathetically squeamish like me. Anyway, try to catch it before it’s too late.
