gratuitous man-repelling.

 Oh boy. If Leandra could see me now.

Mental UK-inspired facinator, sure to repel. Check.

Over-the-top all over sequined jacket with exaggerated shoulders. Check...

 Crazy-ass vagine-enhancing silky and high waisted trousers. Oh yes. Check.

To be honest, I quite enjoy walking down the street, with a mad strut on, behind my shades and noticing all the 'jealous' faces. HA HA!
As the rain has been consistently falling for about three days and according to my iPhone and the weather network, we are destined to enjoy this misery for the rest of the week. But, no bother, I'll just put on silly outfits and dance around and show them to all of you and the new things I have found over the past little while.
Terra Plana juniper nude and quilted heels
Ok now add a bit of something extra shiny just for good measure!

Anyways, enough dress's the round up...

Ira Cohen is an amazing photographer who has been documenting the movers and shakers for the past 50 odd years from a different, psychedelic and intimate perspective. The man spent the 1960s in Tangiers amongst the company of William S. Burroughs and Paul Bowles while experiencing,... 

       well, what do you expect to experience with the drug/alcohol addicted author? I'll just leave that to your imagination, or check out wikipedia. 

He passed away past this month and The Guardian (link) is displaying an offering of his diverse life's work. Here's a favourite of mine of Burroughs with a python, check it as well as a few other gems:

 Allen Ginsberg
 Jimi Hendrix
 "Master Musicians"
"Street Urchin" (literally what this oeuvre is called .... can I bum a cig?)

Next, this is a bit silly but pretty funny. I'm not a fan of Jen Aniston, I find her rather irritating actually with her perfect figure (in that orange viv westwood number) and water promoting. 
She just did a viral video with SmartWater that seriously made me laugh out loud. Maybe this rain is getting to me but for a giggle:

Now this may be a bit late in the game but the film by David Lachapelle Rize (link) came on the other night and I really got into it. Aside from the rock hard bodies of these dancers, the opening of the film reads: the footage in this film has not been sped up in any way. Serious talent. 

Alice Ridley's Amazing Grace (who interestingly-or not really actually-was last seen on America's Got Talent) was stunning as I am currently appreciating the gospel. 
I love the rest of the soundtrack as well, even Aggy makes an appearance, bless her. Also, Dizzee Rascale track 'Fix Up, Look Sharp' is fun. Check it out if you haven't already!

On more music news, a producer friend who has been producing up and coming talent in the UK and writing for #1 pop bands has shared a little gem with me. BlakStar is this sexy young thing from up north who has been touted as the English Drake, only better looking. Is that even possible? Check out the band Playground Mafia 

Have a listen here to BlakStar's own tracks:
Sexy break-it-down, bump 'n grind RnB tune with sweet flow and loop. HOT.

Wicked fun dance tune. If you like a little hip hop/electro/rap, you'll get into this. Très catchy.

Give me some gaga any day. Especially when she's looking this mental!!
Have to say this, never seen gaga's boobs look so good! Normally seen squished, taped, or mummified beyond recognition, these tatas look bright and perky. Also loving the motif, veil & cape, so Phantom of the Opera! Well played.
Hommage to my childhood t shirts!
LaraStoneXVMag. Love it! So hot.

I'll end there with a bit of colour as an appreciation for all the wonderful bright cosmic colours that have arrived for spring. I heart colour blocking. So fun.

Oh, and this.
