Record Love

I love hurrying out of a sloppily parked car in a driveway and immediately scanning the garage sale for a dusty cardboard box, getting on my knees and flipping though dusty records. Garage sale shopping and thrift store shopping is practically a sport to me. However, I love going to (yes I'm doing a shout out) Dimple Records in Davis. I love knowing that I don't have to go leaving a little sad from a garage or an estate sale seeing only Bob Segar and Cat Stevens albums galore.
Today at Dimple, I  found The Supremes sing live at the Copa. The Copacobana was an extremely popular New York City night club established in the 40's. It was in this venue that The Supremes made their debut! I mean, how amazing is that. This just so happens to be that 1965 debut album. *_* SO HAPPY! 

"Baby Love"  is number four, side one of this marvelous Motown record.

Ringaling ring

So it's about time I share my jewelry box. It's pretty much a mess but I love every piece I own. I love unique pieces that will either bring color to an outfit or match my outfit's mood. Textures and materials are what make any piece that I fancy earn a spot in my already crowded box. 
     Some my father has made for me such as this four sided die originally used for Dungeons and Dragons and now used as a conversation starter on my ring! 
Some, like these two I bought from the UCSD bookstore are made up of small beads on metal projections giving it a  dynamic and kinetic composition (aka it's fun to see the little beads move and sparkle as my hand moves!)

Stay tuned until the next episode of the Sun Queen's jewelry box. (What will I pull out next? :P).

Who says you can't wear a dress to school?

"Picnic ready" by the SUN QUEEN (B.Rex)

Sometimes people ask me how I choose who to photograph. I realized after taking pictures of 100+ people that I am drawn to people who show creativity. I love it when people create a whole outfit accessories, hair etc. just like this fashionable lady.

The UCD student shown today has such an interesting style. She took an adorable beige dress covered with a Native American weave pattern dress and pulled it together with a simple brown belt (a must have fashion staple). Then, because the mornings here are chilly, she added a simple cardigan which is not only great practically, but fashionably as well. Her pink sandals are simply the cherry on top!

Posh Pooch

I went to a thrift store called Opportunity House in my hometown Vacaville, CA and found this little gem. The pink (1950's) poodle is definitely an inspiring find. It is such a refined little pooch with its fur trimmed at both the ankles and the "wrists". And with a little beret placed perfectly upon its head, how could I not buy it! However, my favorite part about it aside from being vintage and pretty,  is because with it's tongue out, it looks more silly than refined.

The posh pooch was such an inspiration for me that I bought Mabelline's perfect pastels "turquoise glass" eye-shadow and combined it with my L'oreal felt tip liquid eyeliner to create an oh. so. retro. look.

The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger was formed in 2008 by John Lennon's son Sean Lennon and his girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl. Their latest album "La Carotte Bleue" (the blue carrot :P) is not only on CD, but on vinyl as well.Their genre is officially "folk rock" and they do their genre justice.The new album and previous songs are as whimsical as The Beatles' (especially with their Sargent Peppers album) music but do add a strong guitar riff in now and then. 

Interestingly enough, the real star in this duo is not Sean Lennon but Muhl. Muhl has such a sweet "echoey" voice that sounds like a soft whisper amplified. Muhl is also model and has posed for different brands such as Maybelline. Her model look therefore makes even the most ridiculous of outfits look amazing! 

But with their unique style and music combined, they are incredibly interesting to hear and watch making perfectly interesting performers. And while they both have an un-orthodox sense of fashion, one thing I noticed about the both of them is that they love hats.
