Weekend Re-Cap.

So Saturday's sale at the NISA headquarters was not out-of control-crazy but slow and steady for the most part. The weather was in our favor and like I said...if you needed boots, I got you! And in fact the ladies needed boots and I did what I could to help. Here are a few of my favorite items that found happy homes...
Marie rocking the 70's "hot mom" jumper, 8 year old Sana working sassy red boots (I had those boots forever, they are a size 4.5, a hard size to fit but I couldn't give up on them!! And like a Cinderella story they found the perfect fit!!), More happy feet: Pauline (another "tiny dancer" with a size 4.5/5 foot) scored on the boots, fruit covered loafers and more, and the wood-grain faux Wayfarers, those sunglasses are amazing...and the croquet mallots (models own) only take things to the next level.

I am reading this post and realized that I cropped the picture with the croquet mallots, so that last sentence made no sense whatsoever. Believe me, it is most cetainly some next level stuff.

Inspired: Marc by Marc Jacobs vs. the 80's.

It's no secret that Mr. Jacobs is the master mind behind making my elementary school wardrobe for big people. Complete with rainbows and unicorns, piano key's, puff sleeved blouses and all the darling little rompers mom used to dress you in. Yes, being a child of the 80's, it seems that every collection, has at least a piece (or two or three) that brings back memories from the playground and waiting in line for hot lunch. And I would be lying if I said I hated it. Granted I was too young to be rocking over the knee zipper boots back in the day, Mr. Jacobs has re-introduced this trashy-in-an-awesome-way boot. Now that I am "old enough" to parade around like a bad-ass in these boots, I am unfortunately too poor. At $800 a pair, I can only hope to come across the original vintage version in my size for a fraction of the price.

Marc By Marc Jacobs A/W '07


His inspiration...The Original Goods circa 1980's...



*Hannah over at Marmalade in NYC just let me know she has a pair of the above beauties in a size 8.5, so if that's your size better get over to her shop!

**Also, blog reader, WendyB, let me know that the original's where by Anne Klein. I have only come across the "Made in China" cheapy version. So there you have it!

The Goods! x URB Magazine

So I posted this big pile of stuff a month or so ago (see below). I was working on an editorial for URB magazine's September/October issue that just dropped and here you have it! Lot's of work is involved in styling a spread (big or small)...see for yourself...



So all of the above turned into this...



Here's some of my inspiration for the shoot...

The details...



You know the vintage Goods!-ness had to be in there. 1980's Levi's "Street Brights".


Not all the looks make it...


And up close and personal with the shots that made the cut...

Re-Up: Ver Unica SF.

Before I jetted out to the East Coast I had a chance to drop some of The Goods! to Ver Unica in SF.
Accessories galore! Please note that the boots in the far right corner are size 9.5 B Frye Boots, I know how hard those are to find in larger sizes and in a regular width too, so if that's you, get to shopping!

The Goods! x Bride of Ozzy!

The busier the better they say but not when it means lagging on the blognation!!! Yeah, been a little busy this week. So to back track the week or so...Last week while back in SF I had the chance to catch Bride of Ozzy perform. To my surprise the lead songstress, Ms. Buffy Visick aka "Fresh LA Looks" was rocking The Goods! or "House of Baca" as she likes to call it. It was a fun show and that shiny taffeta jumpsuit looked hot on stage. Check out that high kick!

Oops, I Just Did It Again!

Forgive me for mixing a Britney Spear's song title with the Nike slogan but I am a bit of a goofball at heart and only mean well! Here are some recent yard sale finds. And they were only a quarter each. A $1.25 well spent if you ask me. Late 80's/early 90's Jordan tees, WHAT!
