*rip MJ*

Only a few words are necessary...This man had THE greatest impact on the history of music. His music will carry on, and we will remember him forever. His style is often imitated and has impacted and influenced our own styling throughout the years. We can only hope to some day achieve the greatness that this man has.

He said it best “In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.”

Daily Wear - Sunday Brunch

                                               Maurie and Eve Suede Fringe Vest
                                               Vintage Levis Cut Off Shorts

WiLLiam RaST!!

Justin Timberlake can do it all! Not only can he sing, dance and act.. but he can design the hell out of a denim line! Hes collaborated with creative directors Marcella and Johan Lindeberg to come up with this rock n rollin, edgy and grungey cool as hell brand. Its so effortlessly modern and urban, we can't help being obsessed with it!

We love the blazers, vests and jackets! They're so casual and laid back. If there was a modern day Footloose, we believe the entire movie would be styled in William Rast!! Think chic country bumpkin! lol

The best part about this line is that its found in Bloomingdale's, Saks, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom. The price range goes from around $175-$250 for their jeans, and their leather outwear can go from $300-$600. Remember, jeans are something you will have forever! They're an investment. Plus William Rast jeans fit amazinggg and you will have em for life!

We think that this brand is gonna be around for a longgggggg time!! We can't wait to watch it evolve even more!!

Keep Rockin,

Queens of Leon!

KOL from left:Matthew(lead guitar),Nathan(drums),Caleb(vocals,rythm guitar),Jared(bass guitar)

If you haven't heard of the Kings of Leon yet then you have been slacking big time! They've been around since 2000 but have only recently skyrocketed to extreme stardom with their track entitled "Sex on Fire." This rock band is composed of 3 brothers and one cousin from the Followill family and are from Nashville Tennessee..(we loveee sexy southern boys) If you've seen the movie Disturbia then you've probably heard one of their songs, "Taper Jean Girl" off their "AhaShakeHeartbreak" album, one of our faves!!!

The most recent CD is entitled "Only by the Night." Their harmony is AMAZING, and Caleb's voice is hypnotizing! Check out track # 11 "Cold Desert"..it absolutely movesssss us! KOL just recently performed at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards.. Heres the video for their most recent single "Use Somebody."
We can't wait to see them in concert in September when they're back in the NY/ tri-state area!! If they happen to be in a city near you definitely try and grab some tickets! They sound EVEN BETTER live and we promise you will become Queens of Leon like us <3!>For more about the Kings of Leon check out their website!

Keep Rockin'
Love, L&J

We <3 Summer White!!

Matthew Williamson and Herve Leger Spring 2009 RTW

The Little White Dress is the new Little Black Dress!! Save black for winter gals..White is a chic way to show off a summer glow!! For a night out try pairing a super short dress with white cyclist shorts a la Betsey Johnson Spring 2009 RTW (see below). If your going for the every day casual yet tre chic look we are obsesssssed with Matthew Williamson's white on white shorts jumper w a biker esque zippered front (top left)..but don't jump on your Harley's yet without a brightly colored pair of platforms or even flats...pinks or reds make the white pop on your skin..and accessorize with colorful bangles. Herve Leger and his to die for skin tight dresses are the way to go if you have a wedding or formal event to attend. We love the asymmetrical trend as seen on his 09' Spring Runway. A simple nude heel looks great with a short dress and lengthens your legs!! Pair it with simple gold earrings, a small geometric shaped clutch and one or two cocktail rings. Most importantly don't forget to accompany your "LWD" with a glass of champagne!! Cheers! :)

xoxo , Lau and Jo
