Southern Style Icon: Annelle of Steel Magnolias

AsSceneOnTV 0041

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.

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…

Basic Betch

IMG_8721

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.

Exclusive Video Premiere: Summer Twins – “Darlin’ “

Darlin’ from Summer Twins on Vimeo.

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!

 I originally wrote the song about touring and the struggle that brings with being in a relationship. At the time we filmed this, my boyfriend was on tour for two months with his band, while we were touring here in the US then Japan, so the song felt like an appropriate fit. We were living in two completely different worlds and trying to stay connected with short phone calls here and there, so it wasn’t easy, but this song was meant to serve as a sort of reassurance that we’d make it through all the trials of touring. 
 
Our good friend/go-to-photographer, Joy Newell, came along with us to film and she also edited all the footage. We fell in love with Japan and made some great friends out there. We can’t wait to go back!”

 

This song makes me miss Japan!!! (and my LDR boyfriend too :* )

 

Make sure to pick up the EP here!

Bandolier You Are All I Ever Dreamed Of

IMG_8558

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.

IMG_8560

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…

LAWD MY LEGS ARE SO WHITE!!!!!!!!! Take me to Kokomo so I can tan these alabaster gams. Somebody! Anybody! Anyway, here I am. I had some good thrifting luck recently and came across this super cute polyester blouse. Do you likes? UGH how’s everyone’s new year been so far? Super horny I hope. You know mine is. I recently moved into my own ‘lil apartment. Yes, the bathroom is pink. I’ll post pictures once I get more of my kitsch on the walls and it doesn’t look like the messy ass bachelorette pad as it does right now. You guys, I haven’t even unpacked my makeup yet. Life changes, y’allz.

I can’t wait for my hair to grow. I don’t regret the great Chop Off of Summer 2013, but let’s face it World, this girl was BORN 4 LONG LUXURIOUS LOX. I definitely will tread more carefully in the future and won’t let my hair get too long to where it starts to catch on fire and strangle me like in the past.

I did a fun interview with Mouthy recently and I also wrote some special ‘tings for Rookie’s Vision theme last month that my fellow brujitas and brujitos might enjoy. Once is about making your own magick happen and the other is a guide to crystals. Read if you dare. Now I shall make some tea and watch Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitters Dead. UNTIL NEXT TIME MON CHI CHIS…

Laurel and Hector has been a huge favorite of mine for a while now. When I first featured Kee Kee, the boss lady behind L&H, they were primarily a vintage shop, selling the cutest mod dresses (including this one named after moi!) and now Kee Kee displays just how incredible her design talents are with the collections she releases, like “Lip Service ” which has this mind-blowing Clueless-inspired set!

I want everything!
