remember the post "Biker Chic" i did a little while back ((??)) well the photographer Cameron was given the opportunity to post in the Atlanta InTown some of his street style photos and through a friend telling me that he spotted me ((Thanks Michael!!)) in the article, i discovered my very first "feature" in a REAL publication! though LadyFLASHBACK.com isn't given a real shout out, i'm still flattered as hell that my photo appeared for a couple weeks in the InTown.
ecstatic to share this article with you all, just had to take it off the fridge and do some scanning so it was put off, but nonetheless-YAY, thrilled!!

back in the "day" there was a super mega dance party over in Decatur, GA called Decatur Social Club. while this was before my times in ATL the mastermind, Preston, has revived the scene a couple of times in recent months. first with the "Reunion" party and then last month with the "Fall Revival" throwdown. many friends and i attended the event, first hitting up ABV Gallery for Iain Macarthur's showing of his "Entrance" mash up.

after a small vaca from postings, i've resurrected and bringing you all some archived outfits! these are from my old camera and go as far back to the beginning of summer, a FLASHBACK moment at its finest!
love these acid-washed jeggings from H&M, so comfy and stretchy. however, i did buy some gray dye and plan to give them a new look, the light wash is just too light for me. will show the final product!
top: Free People, jeans: H&M, boots//purse//earring: vintage
shame this photo is so dark, but the background is actually what i was interested in. can you imagine being the secretary at this office space-sign me up!
blazer: Target, dress//boots//purse: Vintage
snapshot from my family vacation to Alligator Point, FL. this trip was bittersweet, you see, we normally go to Gulf Shores, AL but due to the oil spill we had to change our plans at the last minute :(( still a great trip filled with laughter ((as usual with my family)) and LOTS && LOTS of fishing!
dress is from an Alabama boutique-Private Gallery, sunnies: Marc by Marc, hat: H&M
night out with friends in Alabama after the beach trip, including midnight sushi and an Arcade Fire cover from a local band i freaked over!
top: Urban Renewal, shorts: BDG, boots//purse: vintage
my favorite shorts this summer! again, from H&M-such a hotspot! this was from the same visit to Bamaland but for a casual night hanging with friends.
tee:vintage, shorts: H&M, shoes: Toms, bracelet: gift from Dad via Africa-made of BONES!, purse: vintage
the roomie and i from the Electroport Aztec party at MJQ! i made our hair pieces from various feathers i've collected, the big brown one i'm wearing i actually found in New York at a music festival. my friend thought it was really gross that i was picking up a feather and keeping, but that is def not the grossest found object i've kept-hehe!
both Ashleigh's and my outfits are mine && vintage
all about some casual outfits during the summer day time, esp THIS american apparel skirt with a tucked in shirt-of any kind-it's perfection!
tee: Volcom ((a hand-me-down from my dear friend Sean)), skirt: AA, sandals: UO, purse: vintage
have no fear-i wasn't driving and taking this photo-promise! liked the lighting and wanting to get a close-up of my beautiful Chloe shades, sooo lovely!
top: Free People, shades: Chloe, earrings: gift shop
in the old neighborhood i wore this out to grab coffee, the first time i think i actually wore this dress after having for a long time. which i tend to do, such a clothes hoarder!
dress: small boutique, moccasin wedges: Chinese Laundry, purse: Lucky Brand
this is the same dress from the dark photo ((#2)) different night and styled differently, it will most likely be around some more in the winter time since it is a little thick. this night some friends and i went to Eyedrum a:
packed a pb&j sandwich picnic and hung out at Kareem's bike shop-LOOSE NUTS CYCLES-one summer afternoon in the above get-up. this mural was painted for a nearby homemade popsicle vendor that goes by "King of Pops" his flavors are anything but average and out-of-this-world NOMMY!
top: insight, jorts: vintage Levis, sneakers: UO, sunnies: by Keirin bikes ((thanks bebe!)) backpack: vintage Kenneth Cole, pompoms: Natural Life
another snap from Alligator Point. the water was not brown as it appears here but since im so extremely pale and added a little color ((letting you all in on a secret!!!)) it turned a dirty shade. we actually did some snorkeling further out and found some very interesting creatures, i was terrified of sharks-since we WERE catching them feet away from where we were swimming-but i had the parentals looking out for us!
bathing suit && hat: H&M, sunnies: Marc by Marc
this is the night i was introduced to my boyfriend.. i bet this dress is what stole his heart! originally purchased for HARD music festival in LA ((feat. Crystal Castles, Rusko, and lots more!)) but since i bailed out on moving to Cali i choose to wear it to LazerBeamKitty and then to Decatur Social Club Reunion: what a night!!
dress: Bill Hallman, bag: vintage Kenneth Cole, necklace: designed by Pretty Pink Poo, boots: vintage
this truly is just the "tip of the iceberg" when it comes to unpublished photos, i am so behind and really hope you all can bear with my catching up. there is lots more coming up and i fully intend on posting more often..
thinking that 2 posts a week is good, what do you all think?? don't want to overload but always want to keep your attention-your opinion is much appreciated!

well HELLO october
and hello to You All!
a photo filled publication originally started as a cultural bridge between japan && the USofA by two americans living in japan.
the description is best put by the magazine themselves:
TOKION is an arts and culture magazine that reports from the street level where the creative community lives and thrives. Always willing to take a chance and try something new, TOKION goes inside the world of the contemporary artists, musicians and designers who are pushing boundaries and shaping the way we see the world. With its world-class photography and cutting-edge design, the magazine provides a one-of-a-kind platform for the emerging stars and the established icons of art, design, fashion, music and film to present their unfiltered visions to an audience of cultural messengers.
i took the time, and a lot of time at that ((!!!)) to scan in some of my favorite photos and will be sharing them here with you! here is just a few of some of the beautiful photos from the lovely magazine////
all about some oxfords and ked-like shoes these days. esp since it's hard for me to wear heels, the oxfords are a great dressy alternative to heels.
got my first ((and DEF not last)) pair of TOMS a couple months ago, they are burlap like the ones here just don't have strips. they go with everything and are SO SO comfy! ((TOMS TIP: always get a 1/2-full size smaller, they will stretch!!))
even though it's now october, i still am able to rock some tanks living in georgia...and that's exactly what i've been doing. love love love tanks, especially slouchy ones.
and what's better than a tank that's cropped?! and one with triangles is even better, i have long been obsessed with triangles, don't know what it is about that shape but i dig it.
this article was called "WEEKEND WARRIOR" and i am def getting the warrior vibe from both the above && below photos. totally enjoying the studs and headflare.
this last editorial is really great, not only are the photos uber dreamy ((and PINK!)) but the styling is really great too. doesn't this chick look like Alicia Silverstone??? -a prettier hip A.S....
i randomly stumbled upon this mag at a local hip gas station but i assume that some bookstores may carry. it's only published 6 times a year so keep an eye out, it's totes worth it! makes a great coffee table book, although i've been hoarding it my room constantly flipping through the pages for inspiration. oh and please excuse the poor scan quality, it was slightly bigger than my scanner and i had to hold it down each time to get it "just right" although some have some crappy shadows. check back as i will be posting many more pages!

happy happy weekend my fellow weekend warriorz!
