BACK IN BLACK/fingerless leather gloves from jimsinn

I know it's been a while since my last post, but after a recent, amazing and most influential trip to Japan, I can only say that I have been overwhelmed by the feeling of being drunk on inspiration. So, I'm back and here to bring you on a trip through my crazy and twisted may want to hold on, this may be a bumpy yet very fun ride.

p.s. Did you notice the Attack on Titan swag straight from Japan?

Mugler neoprene vest courtesy of Luisviaroma

When I saw the neoprene vest by Mugler (see pic above)...I had to have it! But, then I thought to I really need it, is it something that I truly needed? Well, of course! Then I thought...wait a minute, I can actually make this myself, I do have experience (see For those of you joining me for the first time, Amanda and I design under the label "Sinister." But, there is one big difference here...we are in the womenswear department and now I will try my hand at menswear. So, without further adieu I present my neoprene vest project!

RIDE/icon elsinore boots

It's about that time of the year when I take that last ride before filling the gas tank with Sea Form and placing the battery on a tender only to fill the air with the low hum of electricity and provide the battery with a steady stream of nutrients while awaiting the world around me to unthaw. 

I know...she's old, the bike that is, but she's mine and I can't bring myself to replace her. She even bares the scars of the tough times we've been through. Although temperamental at times, she is still true to me. So I keep her and each time I pull back the choke, turn the ignition key and press the starter and the loud roar of the engine rings in my ears I still smile like it was the first time we met. 

Remember, safety first kids...although, you don't see it in the pics, I do wear a helmet whenever I ride.

Want a glimpse into my world...well, here it is! This is what is going on when I'm behind the wheel of my car. I see everything like this no matter what I do...and this is just a small piece I decided to share. So, keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all let's go!

ALL USED UP/marc jacobs button down

So, there are some great neon signs in our neighborhood and I spent one night taking a few pictures of the signs that lined the street from old motels, music venues and car lots ...they are such relics of the past. I mean, everywhere we go now it's all about LED lighting or some kind of outdoor screen allowing businesses to play customized videos to advertise their goods. I'm not one to complain, and I'm one to fantasize of a modern city looking like some kind of dystopian future found in Ridley Scott's Bladerunner with images of attractive women advertising products and the obligatory product placement of Coke...I have to admit I'm more of a Pepsi person if I had to choose.

Every night I stare out of my bedroom window and see this used cars sign. I love the way it looks, there's just something about it. It's amazing...not to mention it happens to be on the old car lot once belonging to Amanda's father!

THE DEATH OF DYSKO/mixcrate mix

So, as we head in a new direction with the blog...We, that being Amanda and myself have created our first posts based on metallic objects. You should really see Amanda's post, which can be found here... SEE/femme

I have decided to take a different approach to the metallic subject matter...If you have placed your seat in the upright position, then prepare yourself for my thought process. Please make sure that you keep your feet and hands inside the ride at all times... So, as I couldn't see myself using the same poses found at Dollhouse Vacancy I thought, what am I to do? As I was completing a new set based on the musical progression of disco to what is now house, prepare yourself...disco equals disco ball, house music is now the new disco and has been for a while. Disco ball equals shiny reflective ball which in turn shows shiny images on the dance floor. These reflective images are displayed in the image of the new mix set (see above). So, now do you see how this image coincides with a metallic them? Good!

Anyway, enjoy as you are now bound for a very interesting ride... Did I mention this is a free download?

ALMOST LIKE MCQUEEN/avelon pop jeans

I still can't get enough of these Avelon pop jeans...dressed up, dressed down, it doesn't matter they still look good. I fell asleep in them the other day, so I woke up looking good! I don't wear this wasitcoat very often, but it's a great one! I bought it in Paris and Amanda thought I had to add it to my wardrobe as it was very Mcqueen...and she was right! 

These Carrera sunglasses are my new accessory of the season...and yes, I fell asleep wearing them as well.

COVERED UNDER THE SUN/zara crossover jacket

As promised, here's the front of the Zara crossover jacket. I know it's not a great time to be posting pieces that are more fitted for fall, but this jacket is too cool! I'm already plotting my purchases of pieces that will be amazing once the weather has cooled...Cinzia Aria shoes, Demobaza jacket, Rick Owens...the collections for this upcoming season are perfection. So, place your pre-orders now and don't miss out! 

By the way, my Demobaza scarf arrived today. Although, it's far too hot to break that out just yet...but, there is a cold front moving so maybe I can get away with it.

WOLF THIS/more avelon pop jeans

Can you think of any better way to combat this summer heat than by wearing a ballistic sytle vest, a scarf and a snap back hat?  I can't, but it sure does look good...sometimes you just have to deal with it.

I made an observation today about my wardrobe... it's not summer friendly. It's a closet full of jackets, blazers, denim, sweaters, boots and anything else that screams, 'This is not for summer fool!' Oh well, I guess I just wasn't meant to live on a beach or any other place that has over 75 degree weather...It goes without saying, it comes to no surprise as to why I would purchase a Demobaza scarf that should be delivered this week... I'm still trying to figure out how I'll be able to pull that off in August.

SPLATTERED IN BLACK/rick owens boots

This is like a sneak peak of my new jacket purchased at Zara...You know, like one of those good movie trailers that doesn't give away the whole movie before you see it. So, stay tuned as I'll show this piece again. When I do, I promise you will see the whole thing.

LEATHER, LIES & VIDEOTAPE/avelon pop jeans

When I saw these Avelon jeans online...I had to have them. The strips of leather on the legs are brilliant! I know you can't tell in the pics, but there are are tears that are sewn back together using leather on the inside. This is one purchase I don't regret...

DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK/jack&jones wax jacket

I know it's been a while since I last posted, but I promise I'll be better going forward. It's been so hot lately you don't want to do anything. The heat just wipes you out and steals any energy you may have had. 

This upcoming week is going to be a good one! I have some new items on the way and I'm hoping they will be here before the end of the week. I'll be sharing a great DIY as I have changed a few things with my e46 BMW and I am also working on a few new sets that I'll post soon. So, even though I haven't been around, I'm still keeping busy to share some new things. So stay tuned...

PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE/zara hooded cardigan

WARNING: Don't try to replicate this look at home during these hot summer days... I take no responsibility if you do. You have read this warning...needless to say I will not be wearing leather pants or a hooded cardigan in 90 plus degree weather again. I really wanted to wear this newly purchased piece...but was it worth it? Of course it was! Will I do it again...Yes, but not until fall.

SHADOW PLAY/custo barcelona hoodie

I know you can't see a lot of detail in these pics, but if you could I wouldn't be able to title this 'Shadow Play.' I love this Custo hoodie...reminds me of Spain oh so very much. I have really been on a hoodie buying streak lately. I even just received another in the mail recently. I will post it soon, but before I do I'm already thinking of a pair of Cinzia Araia shoes I need to add to my wardrobe

BLEACH, GUNS, LEATHER & LOVE/love moschino denim

I just received these denim pants from a recent online shopping spree. I love the rough, raw feeling and the dirty bleached treatment is amazing! See that dark tunnel in the shot? ...that's the manifestation of the long standing feud between me, glitter and sequins. Let's just say we don't see 'eye to eye.'

I bought this tee at the Marc Jacobs store on our recent trip to LA...That trip was a lot of fun! I need to get back to there!  This tee was part of a collaboration Brian Bowen Smith with the launch of his book, Projects...OK, so that was my 'fun fact' of the day, but let's get back to what really matters, Selma Blair is on my shirt...'oh yeah.'

A big thanks to Dollhouse Vacancy...she introduced me to Urs Fischer on our trip to LA. I love the exhibit or I should say exhibits more than I could have thought.
