I recently checked out the Tortoise & Blonde collection at The Jane Doze mixtape release party. Tortoise & Blonde is a dope eyewear brand working with a lot of the current and popular musicians around NYC… like Ra Ra Riot, Pearl & The Beard and the Jane Doze. I’m loving the Tortoise and Blonde glasses they are definitely stylish and chic. I tried on about four different frames, but my favorite ones were these leopard print frames I am wearing on Guest of a Guest. In addition, I also hung out with The Jane Doze girls & we spoke about their music and recent mixtape which I posted below. Their new mixtape ‘Girl Talk’ has a little bit of everything, and it’s a mash up of pop, indie, hip hop and even some Whitney Houston … basically everything you can think of. This is the kind of mixtape you would play on a girl’s night after downing about ten glasses of cranberry and vodkas at a NYC nightclub. You know how it goes… standing on the couch, one hand in the air. If you’re looking for the perfect music for a girls night then this mixtape is for you … promoter and vodka not included. Download the new The Jane Doze mixtape here.

This week I wanted to do something a little funky and festive. I bought this blazer at a thrift store in Harajuku, Japan; I love the colors and the linen material. The bright colors are perfect for the fun and cheery holiday season (Cynicism at best). It’s the most
wonderful expensive time of the year and I’m not into all the holiday hype. I don’t think Christmas gifts have to be expensive, they should be thoughtful. If you agree check out my top three consignment/ thrift stores in New York: 1. Tokio 7 2. Dear: Rivington + 3. Screaming Mimi’s This is a great way to do some stylish shopping without going over your budget. While shopping I would look for three things: style, quality and functionality. A lot of these consignment/ thrift stores have affordable items at great prices but they would only be fit for Lady Gaga’s closet (haha). Be practical & Be stylish.
I know that a popular gift this season will be the iPhone 4s. I bought this Michael Kors iPhone clutch recently, its dope because it’s a clutch you can throw in your bag or wear to the club. It holds my iPhone, credit cards, and money. This is an example of a thoughtful gift that’s worth the price (Under $100). You can get it from The Michael Kors store or online … I would suggest getting it from Apple same price & free shipping.
And finally… Let’s talk about what I’ve been listening to lately . Kid Sister just released her four-track EP Kiss & Tell. The EP features one free track “Mickey” which you can download below. The Kiss & Tell EP goes perfectly with my funky festive mood. It features verses from Riff Raff and Fool’s Gold’s Danny Brown, and production from Nadastrom and Scoop Deville. My faves are Mickey (Free Track) and Hide & Seek. Listen to the Kiss & Tell EP below and you can purchase the entire EP via Itunes.
