Holiday Gift Guide! Do Not Resuscitate! #DNRBrands #BadAss #AlternaGuide #WhatYouWANT

Around the holiday season, I get e-mailed product information and great ‘stuff’ for gift guides. Occasionally I’m interested. Sometimes, if it is really good, I’m hit with a retail whack attack. This is one of those times.

Welcome to the awesomeness that is ‘DNR Brand’, or ‘Do Not Resuscitate’. The name alone get’s my inner grrr-girl going. It has enough bad ass product that it tickles my weird. I have an inner need to watch ‘Walking Dead’ and vampire movies about throat ripping beasts that don’t twinkle. This girl doesn’t just do Gaultier, she does gore.

Working both the yin and yang of lifestyle and fashion, I get to see some amazing art. This shirt, labeled ‘Cyborg West’, blew me away. No bad pun intended.

Seriously epic want.

With most companies, a t-shirt selections tries to prove their true worth in ‘horror a la Hell’s Angels’ style. So…you have some chick in a bikini with a gun on a tee. Boo yah yah, who cares?

At DNR they seem to understand that this is not just boring, but can be fixed. With this hot image called ‘Cyberlesque’.

Ha ha! Made you look. And you liked it.

I know that shirt’s can get bulky and some dude’s and chick’s don’t feel the clothing love. Often you may not know their size, and not everyone is a big fan of clothing.

For the discriminating friends and family in your life DNR Brands has a wide array of very cool, and original jewelry.

Personal Favorite: Gun Bracelet. It’s for EVERYONE!!

We’ve pretty much established that DNR Brands is the place to buy for your alternative, gothicly-hip, twisted, weird, ‘Nightmare Before Xmas’ loving friends. Or your high end, couture, uber chic fashion clientele. I know personally I will be buying my ‘personal, it’s all about me’ gift here. (You can buy it for me *hint hint*)

Still riding the metro rail of unsure? Well, then you have forced me to name drop. The creative minds behind this are none other than (cheesy drum roll) Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff.

In a series of seven different covers depicting each model solo and in black & white the pictorial is striking.

As Labor Day weekend is upon us I find there are many things to do;

2) Got to pool party with mediocre food and drunks college kids

3) Go to EPIC fashion show in San Diego with Couture Gowns……

And of course I will be choosing three.

Cool Things, Rare Color Film Shows London Life in 1927 #Biocolour #NotColorized #PhotoCool #London1927

Screen-Shot-2013-05-16-at-3.16.16-PM

Normally we are all about modern. Modern lifestyle, model’s, DJ’s and concepts. However, there is the rare occasion we are struck by something vintage that is so cool it much be shared.

Picture this…literally. In 1927 Claude Friese-Greene shot some of the first-ever color film footage around London. He captured everyday life in London with a technique, innovated by his father, called Biocolour.

This is not ‘colorized’ or faked. It was presented by the British Film Council and is all, exactly what it looked like, back then.

Urban Peek notes British Film Institute used computer enhancement to reduce the flickering effect of the original Biocolour

This film is almost 100 year’s old. Enjoy this little feature;

Levi Mastro Art Event presented by @ScionAV

Lucky for us the ultra hip and cool people at Scion AV Have landed on our shores on the left Coast. why? Besides being ridiculously hip and in the know, they represent art, music and fashion at it’s best.

Recently they had an art reception for Urban AV artist Levi Maestro on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood. Maestro moved to LA in hopes of starting a film career.

Maestro showcased his art spanning from 2006, when he came to Los Angeles to 2013. The artists brought out everything from limited edition run jackets, mugs to wall art and framed t-shirts.

Levi was joined by artist such as;

Anwar Carrots, Josh Peas, BJ The Chicago Kid, Dianne Garcia, Dom Kennedy, DJ SourMilk, Eli Reed, Gavin McNeil, George Wayne, Hayley Marie Norman, Javier Nunez, Jeff Staple, Kellen Roland, LEP Bogus Boys, Polyester the Saint, The Mac, Tino, Trashhand

The urbanesque art was really impressive and definitely repping LA proper. Levi is an amazing artist, and it was beyond PACKED. Despite the lack of breathing room everyone left happy, full of food and wine with something they loved (hats, shirts, watches, art), including our crew member Ms. Prince.

I was stuck at home with a brain full of NyQuil in fever land, but HUGE thanks to ScionAV for inviting HeathyrWolfe.com crew to this. We can’t thank ScionAV enough for inviting us to this showing of Levi’s work and talent.

Valentine’s Gifties Galore! Erotic Roses or Art for Your Sweetheart #New #Fresh #Sensual

As fashonistas everywhere gear up for NYFW, typing up schedule’s, faxing confirmation and sending last-minute email’s to their besties, the rest of us sad suckers at home are readying ourselves for Valentine’s Day.

Whether it is a day of loathing or a day of joy for you, everyone deserves a little love on February 14th. But what do you get the woman or man who has it all?

A spa day? Not quite in the budget, and last-minute cards and candies from the drug store may get you a slap in the face anyway. Let’s try something different, interesting and slightly sensual and well within our budget.

Handmade erotic roses on a chain a la Sphinx Art.

Erotic flower red

When I first saw the promotional photos I worried the size was too large (cough).

It turned out to be a dainty and sweet little necklace. Well made, classy and definitely worth owning & wearing. Sweet, petite and a little scandalous. They come in multiple colors (mine is purple) and come in a black sheer bag. Guys don’t worry, this leaves no doubt it’s JEWELRY, not THE ring.

What about your Man? He deserves something sensual and unique.

Erotic art sure to get your man motivated. All art is original and is handmade. It is small enough to find and area to ‘display’ what your hot, sexy and VERY smart GF gave you without scaring guests.

It’s All About #Geometry. SS2013 Herve Leger.

With things going the way they have this January, I can only apologize for not filling you in and writing. I do however feel caught up on health and work issues so it’s time for me to dazzle you with something special. With NYFW upon us (the 7-14th) I thought you might need a pre-fashion week fix. Luckily the demi-god designer known as Herve Leger just put his SS2013 designs on sale. And they are beyond amazing.

This years Spring/Summer collection dazzles with geometric shaping. Known primarily for his beyond sexy bandage dresses, Leger always bring something new to the table. Otherwise his collection would not be THE thing to buy and wear. This year he added intensity in geometric shaping to make his dresses have extra emphasis on your body shaping. Turning every woman into a an angular modelesque shape that flatter and make his clothes and accessories as close as you can get to wearing art.

Note the harness and the shaped pants. They really are something out of this world.

Jacklyn Multi Jacquard Dress

This is made for emphasis on a sexy waistline. Flattering for any shape or size.

Yes, it comes in Black as well.

Contoured Waist Belt

And the The amazing piece by far is one of my favorites. The contours, lines with an addition of a flirty skirt make this well worth the money and pre-order.

Vida Passementerie Embroided Dress

Vida Passementerie Embroided Dress Back

My god it really is reminiscent of a piece of Art Nouveau. The lines both swirl and the embroidery delicate. This is modern-day grace.

Unfortunately with a whopping $12,500 dollar tag I may have to wait on buying it. Thankfully this is pre-order custom piece by Monsieur Leger.

Either way everything in this collection is worth buying and dreaming about. And dreams like this in my world, end up in my closet.

Kardashian Christmas Card #whitechristmas

article-kardashian-christmas-1218

Never let it be said they Kardashians are not close. Maybe they don’t all love each other but this takes a HUGE amount of combined effort to put on a Christmas card like this. I mean this public display of celebrity is over the top! Go mama Kris.

A few things I would like to point out;
1) Silver and white. With champagne glasses. Soooooo, that means it’s actually a New Year’s Eve card? I say that as an awkward question because the card is making me feel awkward. And not Christmas-y.
2) Kris and Bruce are REALLY far apart. Is this a result of their not so happy marriage? Inquiring minds want to know!
3) Kim is has no boyfriend in this!! My god what will Kanye think? More importantly what will his ego say?
4)Kim’s dead kitten ‘Mercy’ is sitting in the box. Is she the ghost of Christmas past? Wouldn’t it have been smarter to photoshop her out. It’s making me sad.

Supposedly Lamar and Khloe couldn’t make it and were photshopped in. Why couldn’t they remove a dead kitten. And Scott Disick (hate him). Ugh.

There you have it folks. Love them or hate them the Kardashian’s wish you a Merry Christmas. Here’s hoping we all have a ‘White Christmas  and very merry New Year with our families.

No You Can’t Have It, Yes We Want It; World’s Most Expensive Dress!

There are some things so opulent in life even the very, very rich 1% window shop it and drool at the thought of SOMEDAY getting it into their hot little money-laden hands. And that something is this;

Introducing, the world’s most expensive dress!

This beautiful dress is made by designer Debbie Wingham, weighs in around 30 pounds in weight, carries 25 carat black diamonds on the peplum and shoulder shrug and costs a nice fat $5,682,950.

See the black diamonds? Neither do I, but I still want this dress.

Heading towards Five million seven hundred thousand dollars this dress makes the VIP crowd in Dubai shake in their shoes. Wingham states it took 6 months to hand sew every little diamond and design this diamond darling. Her inspiration and thought’s for this pricey dress?

(The dress is)an anthem for a beautiful woman who loves life

I think we all love life but this is for someone with a never-ending bank account. Most certainly not made for the average diva (perhaps Aretha or Ms. Diana Ross).

If you had an extra 5.7 million lying around would you buy this dress?

This is a sample sale piece from A id for Arsenic I could die for but will just desire deeply instead. Really it is chi-chi chic. It takes a bite out of you while remaining couture-esque stylish.

Taxadermia Sample Royal Deer Crest Chain Necklace

The necklace description just makes it a complete want and need for the noir, fetishista stylish goth girl.

Taxidermia is a modern re-imagining of Victorian mourning jewellery and attire, a graphic world of dark Victoriana, memento mori and macabre taxidermy. Featuring vicious yet elegant designs with a nod to the past, Taxidermia is a thoroughly contemporary art jewellery and apparel collection created and constructed in London.

An extravagant statement piece, the ‘Royal Deer’ necklace is not for the shy or faint of heart. A detailed and intricate pendant design featuring silhouetted stags, animal jaws and Victorian flourishes. Hand made in London from high quality materials, the necklace is constructed from heavy black chain and is adjustable in length. The pendant measures 13cm wide x 9cm high and is cut from glossy black laser cut perspex.

It also comes in a custom A is for Arsenic box ti make you feel extra special

This just gives me a greater respect for London underground fashion culture. It really is a piece of noir grande. Lush, sexy and beautifully crafted. It completes my fashion fetish. Interested? Here is the Link to buy

Happy Shopping!

Rihanna partners with Armani to create 2nd collection

Looks like the music industry can’t keep their hands out of fashion. Kanye dove in deep and now RiRi has launched her second collection collaborating with Armani. According to British Vogue;

Rihanna has teamed up with Armani Jeans and Emporio Armani Underwear to design another collection, imbued with her own boyish, dressed-down style.

Some of the sketches look like this

Image

Although I greatly respect Rihanna as an artist I am not so sure about her heading too far in the world of fashion. Most of her really amazing costumes have been designed by the UK’s resident surrealist Gareth Pugh. I am 100% behind her creating a new hit single, but the thought of her designing underwear?

Thoughts? Give me a reason to believe, folks.
