I have been planning to make this mix for a little over a month now. It started off as a playlist for someone going through a break-up. However, now I think this playlist can also double as a nice chillout mix.
Featured Artists: Wye Oak, The Radio Dept, Memoryhouse, Fleetwood Mac, Tame Impala, Stars and more...
Give it a listen. It will make your Thursday better. I promise.
Only God knows how much I've watched this video over the weekend! I truly admire Drew Barrymore's directing. The girl is crazy talented! Whip It was awesome (especially since it was set in Tejas!) What I really enjoyed in this video was of course the styling. The look of the Night Creepers gang was is very post-punk meets Rockabilly, a look I donned most of 2007. Take a look as Chloe Moretz of (500)Days of Summer shines as Veronica in the Night Creeper gang...Oh and that kid from Maid in Manhattan is in the video too.
Anyway, I was inspired to put together like pieces to form my own take of the Night Creeper gang look. By the way the Night Creeper jackets were designed by Jezebel & Toff

|Crazy about prints! Asos Aztec backpack vs. Zumiez Baja Backpacks|
These days it seems like my cherished messenger bags and backpacks have bitten the dust. I ruined my vintage Eddie Bauer leather backpack at Coachella this year with sunscreen and pancake syrup. Needless to say I need a replacement.
I really want the Jeffrey Campbell Rizzler-2 backpack in purple/orange suede. However with a price tag of $200.....ehhhh
I've also had a keen eye out for the vintage Fossil re-issue leather pieces. They're very classic and seem pretty durable. However I wouldn't take them to Coachella. Never make the same mistake twice.
The printed canvas and baja backpacks prove to be a bit more in my price range. The Zumiez Baja backpacks are only $21.99. The Asos Aztec backpack is $77 but alas it's out of stock.
I just need something durable to store my laptop and notebook in yet stylish enough to carry as a purse because I will not carry both around on campus!
Now who needs a protractor?

So I bought these platform woven wedges last year on Santee Alley in DTLA for $25. They're featured in one of my older posts. I love the look of length they gave my legs and anything over 5inches is okay in my book as far as shoes go!
Needless to say however, I got tired of the 70s-inspired woven pattern on the sole quickly. I needed to do something to protect my investment. So DIY to the rescue!
Here's what you need:
Black Acylic Paint, Thumb tacks 900-1000 (Try Staples or Walmart or the Dollar Store) and Matte Black Spray Paint
- Paint over the woven sole with black acrylic paint (It looked super nice and I wore it just like this for a while.) It takes a couple of hours to dry so I'd recommend painting at night and continuing in the morning.
- Stud the woven sole with the silver thumbtacks. (This can take you a few hours if you don't have cable. It could be weeks if you do!
- Spray paint the gold metal buckles with matte spray paint to match the rest of the shoe. A couple of coats is best to prevent crackling paint.
VOILA! Enjoy your new Jeffrey Campbell- tick wedges for a fraction of the cost!
