Music & fashion (Nina Sky x Stoli)


With a glance, it's almost impossible to not want to be Nina Sky sisters, Nicole and Natalie Albino's long-lost bff. Heavily influenced by Gwen Stefani, they epitomize a raw femininity and masculine cadence that seeps with inspiration. So in honor of ORGNL TV, Stoli asked me to share a few thoughts on the many music and fashion related connections seen and heard over the years.

It's no surprise that Madonna had us all craving lace corsets, pearls and enough tulle to outfit the entire cast of Swan Lake. Or that the year 1957 marks the teen teary-eyed upheaval of Elvis shaking what his mama gave him in a gold lamé suit. It's obvious the parallels between music and fashion have long been hitting hard. And who can forget Lennon's signature sunglasses... a quick Google search and suddenly Liverpool surfaces a mere second to the fashion-friendly inundation of circle frame designs from here to Timbuktu.

In modern times we see everything from designer collection inspired by music and Vogue covers (ahem, Lana Del Ray and Lady Gaga) to Kayne West and his gorgeous (and by gorgeous I mean falls out chair because they cost $5000 gorgeous) Giuseppe Zanotti collaboration. And let's not forget that ridiculously modest soirée often referred to as The Grammy's. As much as the actual awards are truly honored, for many the dedicated fascination remains in what our favorite musicians' decide to wear.

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Watercolor Wonderland x Nasty Gal

Still in shock...  Apart a from my instagram sneak peeks, it's been torture keeping this secret, but now I can finally share the amazing little fact that yours truly was featured on the one and only Nasty Gal (falls out of chair)!! When I was first contacted by NG and asked to design a few exclusive illustrations/paintings, I'm pretty sure my response was some highly intelligent verbiage falling along the lines of, "Wha-um-can't breathe. OMG am I dreaming?" But okay, here's a totally cliché moment... dreams come true!
