These are all the things I am currently dreaming about. All the usual Marie vibes are here: magic versus magick, witchery versus trickery, things I can wear to The Magic Castle or a séance. Have I mentioned my birthday is next month? (Same day as Angela Lansbury’s.)

If you know me, then you know that I am OBSESSED with cateye sunglasses. I mean, I’m obsessed with sunglasses in general ::glances over at giant pile of scattered shades on desk::, but a cute cateye frame is definitely a signature accessory in the Closet of Rie.
Crap Eyewear is one of my favorite sunglasses brands, and it’s in part due to their amazing cateye style called “The Diamond Brunch.” I have the white pair above, which totally makes me feel like Rose McGowan’s character in Doom Generation. Badass, right?
Well, lucky for you, Crap Eyewear and I are giving away a pair of “The Diamond Brunch,” in classique black. SO CHIC! Just leave a comment below (or on Instagram) and I will choose a winner this Thursday, Sept 18. BONUS: If you repost on Instagram using the hashtag #ALlovescrapeyewear you’ll get an extra entry! At this time, this giveaway is open only to my sisters in the United States. Good luck!
FYI…it comes in this ADORABLE case! So genius! The cuteness of it has seriously has gotten me to always put the sunglasses in the case when I’m not wearing them. I’m actually consciously protecting them for once, unlike all the other times I’ve thrown my glasses in my bag leaving them to be scratched or covered in lipstick! Thank you Crap Eyewear!

I recently wrote an article for Rookie about my love for the movie, Steel Magnolias aka STEEL MAGZ, so I thought it would be a good time to talk about how much I love the character Annelle’s style in the film. TBH, she isn’t my numba one favorite character (that would go to Truvy played by THEE Dolly Parton, duh, or that ol’ grump Ouiser) but Annelle (played by Daryl Hannah) definitely has the cutest look of las chicas de magnolias.
Annelle rolls into Truvy’s salon as the new gal in town who goes from awkward wallflower to party girl to born-again Xtian, all throughout the course of the film. While she doesn’t spit out dat rich, quotable word venom like the other ladies do, I do appreciate her vintage specs and her nameplate necklace. These days she’d definitely have a pretty good Instagram following with that look.
WAIT what are those scary ass balloons in the background!!
Are those some sheer pastel pink polka dot gloves I spy??
Bonus: after a year or so of painfully living VCR-free due to (never learning how to hook up this ancient device) laziness and moving, I can now happily say that me and my VCR are back in action. Delishis…

I have to admit, these days I can appreciate simplicity in things that I wear. Don’t worry, I ain’t gettin’ SOFT ON YA, but I’ve definitely learned how to appreciate a basic tee. I’m sure working in basics in my day job has contributed to that. This past year I’ve acquired a decent amount of crop tees, which are perfect for wearing under pinafore dresses. I am loving this leopard print one from Swell.
♥ Outfit deetz: leopard crop top c/o Swell, Asos dress, Modcloth tights and shoes. ♥

YOU GUYS I am such a huge fan of the band Summer Twins, the supercute sisterduo of Chelsea and Justine Brown who make the dreamiest tunes right here in So Cal, so I am really excited to premiere the video for their song, “Darlin’” which is off their new EP, Forget Me.
From Chelsea: “This video is a documentation of a 10 day tour we did last year in Japan. For years, it’s been a dream of ours to go out there, so the whole thing felt unreal and we were lucky to arrive while the cherry blossoms were blooming!

Have you ever heard the sweet sound that is leather rubbing against… pleather? That sensual, aural combo was today’s soundtrack as I drove all over the city getting my taxes done, eating tacos, and being a first-time visitor to the magical weave store where my friend Lenora bought me a single fake braid (can’t wait ’til that makes an appearance on here.) In tow was my most prized accessory as of late, an iPhone case from Bandolier, AKA, something I have dreamed about my whole (iPhone) life.
Bandolier makes beautiful leather cases that attach to a decorative, cross-body length strap, so you can wear your iPhone like a purse. There are two slots on the backside of the case that holds cash and cards, perfect for the low-maintenance type of occasion where you wouldn’t want to carry a regular bag, like grabbing a Slurpee at 7-Eleven or going to see a show. Bandolier has gold and silver chains, as well as leather straps of various colors. They make them for both the 5 and 4 series, in case you are like me and running on the even number iPhone cycle! When does 6 come out anyway? Hoping that version will finally have a built in flat iron…
