Can we talk about Charlotte Aitchison’s awesome 90s inspired outfits in her new video? Plaid skirt, spiked choker and platform shoes? Yes. Not to mention her friend’s round sunglasses and candy bracelets. 

Artist Spotlight: Jonni Cheatwood

I’ve got a thing for art that plays with the absense of identity and Jonni Cheatwood’s Grace Series does just that in a totally rad way. Cheatwood graduated from Arizona State University in 2011 and currently lives and works in Tempe, AZ.

"The majority of my thought process is dedicated to deconstruction, making mistakes, and finding truths in the abstract," Cheatwood writes on his website.

Using acrylic on inkjet prints, Cheatwood creates these surrealist, faceless pieces.

Grimes & Saint Laurent

So what’s up with Saint Laurent collaborating with such awesome musicians lately? First Beck now Grimes? I couldn’t ask for anything more. Grimes, otherwise known as Claire Boucher, has designed a capsule collection for Saint Laurent Paris. The collection features five t-shirts with original designs done by Boucher herself. Having previously designed a line of vagina rings, Grimes hopes to pursue her own line in the future and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Bring it on. 

You can find her t-shirt designs here.

Beck Models for Saint Laurent

The windows are rolled down, my sister is in the driver’s seat and my arm is out the window feeling the breeze and cupping the wind in my hand. Donned in plaid skirts, knee-high socks and navy blue polos, we’ve got Beck’s “Geuro” dancing through the speakers. I have been listening to Beck for years now. My school uniform has come and go (and my knee-high socks have made their triumphant return), but Beck’s music is still a constant.

All these years I’ve thought, Beck is cool. And as if this guy couldn’t get any cooler, Beck adds modeling for Saint Laurent’s Spring 2013 campaign to his list of successes. Beck has collaborated with musicians such as Chris Ballew from The Presidents of the United States of America, Jack White, Emmylou Harris, The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Wilco, Feist and more. He has played on SNL six times, has been nominated for 12 Grammy awards and won three, not to mention 15 nominations and six wins for the MTV Video Music Awards. Okay so I’m done obsessing, check him out.

Best Etsy: I’m Your Present

One of my good friends showed me this Etsy shop, “I’m Your Present” a few months ago. And I’m so glad I decided to bookmark it. This shop features handmade clothing, accessories and jewelry. It is packed with fantastic acrylic jewelry, kittens, silver confetti and skulls. If you’ve got a thing for super kitsch and ultra feminine jewelry then you’ve gotta give this shop a look. Check out some of my favorite pieces:
