Kickin It Old School

My fashion furu tipped me on this piece by Flud Watches: the All Black Boombox Watch. Technically, it's for the gentleman but I'm dying for my own. I'm going to try to be poppin' and lockin' it at the block party all spring.

The All Black Boombox watch is $90 and available at

Get Inked with Les Trompe L’Oeil de Chanel

In what I can only describe as pure genius, Chanel will be offering temporary tattoos, called Les Trompe L’Oeil de Chanel, for a mere $78 (compare that with a handbag). I am, rightly so, pretty obsessed.

These aren't your basic glitter-infused tattoos, either. If you buy Chanel, you get Chanel, and you better rock it. They are based on Peter Philips's designs for the Chanel Spring 2010 RTW show. The look ranges from delicate strands of pearls to thicker chain bracelets, flowers, and more.

I love the idea of stacking them together at the wrist, and I absolutely adore the way the models wore them around their thighs - so obscenely sexy and unusual, especially when paired with a short full skirt, or maybe a really great slightly A-line skirt in a fabric that drapes sensuously (velvet? silk chiffon, perhaps?).

It's going to be a good spring. Check out my weekly guest post on Urban Darling for more images.
