Oh, I LOVE Lanvin. Alber Elbaz, you are a genius and a gift to women everywhere!
For Lanvin’s Spring 2010 line, the man behind the fashion house’s most inspiring designs is giving us a bag of confetti with silver sequined pantsuits, billowing skirts, wrap-around sheer tunics and safari oxfords, all fondued in flowery leis, straw hats brimming with decorative trinkets, white-rimmed sunglasses and Skittle-colored heels. Bravo sir, and thank you.

First, respect and thanks paid to one of my besties, Ragen Fykes, for the inspiration to continue the trend she started long ago when she diligently posted a weekly boy fetish called, Man Friday, on the blog that she and I share. It was a brilliant idea and one that I know a lot of us enjoyed and looked forward to each week. It was like, Happy Friday! Here’s a present! At least that’s how I felt every Friday. So, in ode to her and her fabulousness and for the heart and growth of our business blog, Amber and I are super duper excited to begin Iconic Friday, a weekly kiss blown to one of our favorite and most juicy icons from the past. Especially with regard to their personal fashion and style statement to the world.
Enough emo blabbing. Amber’s pick this week is none other than Mr. Marlon Brando. His younger (and umm, more handsome) days were spent lounging around Hollywood film sets in plain white tees and ribbed wife beaters, cuffed and worn-in blue jeans, black motorcycle jackets, sometimes zippered plaid wool coats, sailor and newsboy caps and dock shoes. Simple, sexy, rugged and masculine, without trying hard or ever looking like he would be afraid to get his hands dirty.
Until next week! And please, drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know who you’d like to stare at on your computer screen for more Iconic Friday posts. We’ll shout you out! Woot.

The lovely and uber talented Portland photographer and feline lover BriAnne Wills just posted these incredible new snaps on her blog and I think they are so delicious. The colors in the first set are edibly bright and the setting, scene and vintage outfits are marvelous. The black & white set are fierce, stark and minimalistically perfect. BriAnne is a queen of the B&W. One day soon, she will bless us with a Monster Vintage look book and we will all be happy and dance a ring around the rosey.
Find more BriAnne here, here and here.

Email us over any candid, staged, indie, slick street / home / club / restaurant / work / play photos in your favorite outfits and we’ll blog them! Yummy!

So umm, yeah. The rumor that The Pack unexpectedly bum rushed the Massive stage after their scheduled event at Backspace Cafe and performed their “Got My Vans On But They Look Like Sneakers” single and other banging California-tinged songs from their discography until they were sweaty and the crowd was emotionally exhausted from screaming and flailing along? Tis true, loves, tis very true…
