I'm not a big fan of chocolates or candies but I like Rick Owens so maybe this one I'd touch. Rick Owens + gray and white M&Ms? Why not?

Decadent Mess, Life in Mono

Haven't posted the usual phone cam photos of magazine spreads that caught my fancy. Fact that these are back issues now don't matter, I'm just indulging my can't-make-anyone-love-you state of mind at this moment. I'm not sad very often, I hope blogging proves therapeutic.

Welcome To The Jungle

OMFG. I'd love to get my hands on these Christopher Kane T-Shirts. But at € 186.67 a piece? Hmmm... Quite steep for my budget but would make a great late birthday present for myself. I'm begging! Sponsor me?! Kidding.

Linked with Iconique

Rotterdam's Iconique Fashion Online Magazine likes The Monochromator and we like them back!

Here's a secret: X2 and I have not been going over our email for months now (haha!). So, when I forced myself to go over its content this afternoon, aside from travel agencies and other products that wanted to place ads via this blog, 'twas a nice surprise to find an email from a gorgeous online magazine called Iconique.

The email read: "...we'd like to compliment you on your website. Iconique Fashion
Magazine tries to keep its stylish link directory a high quality resource that is free from spammy sites... Your site will be a wonderful addition..."

Whoever said that flatterry won't get you anywhere is mistaken. In a snap, X1 was pumped for action! Lazy old me went to work by going over the site's content to updating our links.

It is a fab website. We dig its fashion and art content, among others. And, since they like us, that says a lot about their taste and sense of style. Thanks, Iconique!

P.S. - And, thank YOU for your comments. It's amazing to know that you're there, that you appreciate what we share. It makes blogging - this high regard and this need for expression - worthwhile. xoxo.

(Denim*2) + (Leopard*2) = Emmanuelle Alt

It must be my lucky day. I've always loved the look of denim on denim with leopard prints. I think it's so rock 'n roll. Imagine how I thrilled I was when I chanced upon scanned copies of some of Emmanuelle Alt's editorials for Parisian Vogue from the previous year. So hot!

BONUS PIC: A young Emmanuelle Alt - in what else but sexy denim. Pure lurve...Ooh!
