Why Don’t You Have These Headphones?!

These awesomely authentic Aerial7 Royale Headphones are made with genuine full-grain genuine leather, customized cushy ear cups and re-inforced aluminum outer ear housing.  Royale in every way, the isolated design blocks outside noise completely and speakers are equipped with superb 50mm drivers deliver the crystal-clear lows, mids, and highs. With precision sound quality, these radically retro looking headphones invite you to listen to music just the way it was intended! 

Powerful and plushy sound puppies, these headphones are seriously stocked with additional premiums for the snobbiest of music snobs. Included with purchase are a heavy duty, extendable coiled DJ cable, a lightweight cable with a mic for using with a cell phone, a 3.5mm to 6.3mm (1/4-inch) adapter, and a carry bag. For the amount of engineering and technical authority the Aerial7 Royale Headphones offer, the price of $399.99 is justified. (not Justin Timberlake ‘cry me a rive’ justified) Just… justified.

I personally wouldn’t be able to allow myself that kind of wallet leverage, as while I’m a music enthusiast, I do still rock my diskman and Sony walkman from the later 90’s.  My requirements for music quality are a little less… sophisticated. 🙂

For those of you that may feel the way I do, that these are simply totally rocking old school style headphones that I adore (and that my ears would love!), you’ve not been forgotten. WeAretheSuperlativeConspiracy, WeSC is at our rescue with retro unisex headphones fitting for vintage fashion and music enthusiasts with the Maraca seasonal headphones (picture below). Available for only $71!

Other awesome designs in accessories can be found in the recent collaboration collection of Bing Bang and WeSC (more at Refinery29.com)

Alright, one more… These Aerial7 Tank Headphones in ‘Blizzard‘ are available on DogFunk.com for $79.95!

Ever so Awesome Emma Stone Rocks August Cover of Vanity Fair

It’s the next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways..
It’s still rock & roll to me.

And in closing for today…

Vanity Fair Cover: Emma Stone August 2011

Emma Stone, one of the most hilarious and just plain cool broads ever know to mankind… Will be sizzling on the July cover of Vanity Fair.

The Actress known for her roles in films like ‘Easy A‘, ‘Zombieland‘, ‘House Bunny‘ and a few more instant classics like ‘Superbad‘ tries to play down just how hot she is.

It’s obviously not working, Emma..

But your humility makes you even more adorable! 🙂

Stone’s in not one, but three flicks this summer: ‘The Help,’ ‘Friends With Benefits’ and ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love.’

“Talking about this stuff is pretty new,” she said when asked about her love life.

Stone, who recently broke up with actor Kieran Culkin, is rumored to be dating her ‘Spider-Man’ co-star Andrew Garfield, but the pair have remained mum on the subject.

Stone, like a true Hollywood pro, reveals that “the only solution I’ve come to when it comes to things like that — the health of my family or dating, really personal things — is not to talk about it.” – From: ‘Emma Stone’s Bad Habits: Sugar, Wine and Heroin‘ By Kelly Fisher

2012 Fashion Trends: Oriental Prints, Fur Trims and Short Hems Coming Soon!

Fashion Trends of 2012:

Expect to see prints of the Orient, Lace and Fur Trimming similar to the style of the 1920’s, and Mod Infused Early ’60s Hemlines

Thanks to great resources like Fashionising.com, getting a heads up on the next years fashion trends is within reach. While it’s still a bit early to predict what significantly different changes will take off with a fluster and what trends will fall as complete blunders in 2012, enough information is available to (at the very least). help us prepare the best way possible.

I can only hope that the biker-chic style that was so eminent in the stylings of 2011 remains steadfast as the year turns, as I still have to purchase both my motorcycle boots and jacket.  Of these two things… I have been virtual window shopping for the entirety of 2011.

Chanel Motorcycle Boots - Introduced During 2010 Fashion Week in NY

Philipp Plein Jacket - A MUST HAVE !!!

Now, that said.. Some new trends, both in prints, fits and hems are rumored to be big hits in the upcoming year of 2012. Of these, expect to see an increase in the street style wearing of Komono‘s, oriental prints will be more common, though expected to be a bit more subtle and floral in use. Exotic silks and authentic vintage Kimono’s would be great pre-planning purchases to be a well-prepared fashionista for 2012!

The vintage fashions of this year certainly will not die off and disappear, but they will morph just a bit. From the sophisticated ’70s style we’ve seen so much of this year, with the soft flowing curls and slinky fabrics, expect a shift into the style of the early 1960’s. We’re talking true Mod Girl stuff here, Peter pan collars, short hems, mod hair styles and the Twiggy fashioned eyeliner may be sneaking it’s way back into the fashion forefront.

This year has already opened itself up to many 1930’s inspired fashions, a trend heightened with the release of the Motion Picture, ‘Water for Elephants.’ For both Men and Women, there has been a throw-back to old-fashioned baseball caps, and early styled lace accented dressings for ladies. With the ‘Great Gatsby’ Film expected to be released in 2012, the same will be seen in relation to 1920’s Flapper Fashion.

Avoid costume like ensembles, as these will be easy to spot and difficult to avoid with an expected over-indulged availability of short black wigs and overdone Flapper dresses. Keep this classic trend modern by introducing the ’20s presence in your style in a minimalistic way. Wide-leg trousers and subtle fur trims are great ways to achieve this style without going overboard.

Wide-Leg Trousers

The Chanel 'Le Boy' (A MUST HAVE for 2012!)

The Chanel ‘Le Boy’ is the ultimate glamour bag, with the classic golden braided strap, and intricate lettered perfection of ‘CHANEL’ stitched along the bag’s wide end, these little puppies will be booming in popularity… I want the red one, bad. Already. 🙂

So, there you have it. A few fashion predictors to help you ease your way into a fashionable 2012 from start to finish. Now, we’ll get to what’s pressing currently, which is the preparation for bathing suit season, of course! Get ready for high waists, retro cuts and prints, the return of the one-piece (with a twist), and the early signs of the 1990’s fashion comebacks…

TOMTOM JEWELRY’s ‘Future ’70s’ Collection: Back In Time With An Architectural Twist

Another Refinery29.com Style Find: TomTom‘s new ’70s-inspired jewelry collection.

TomTom's 'Future '70s' Jewelry Collection

Future 70s Studded Rings by TomTom Jewelry

The various pieces of wearable art by TOMTOM JEWELRY has been a favorite among the press, celebrities, fashionistas and creative expression enthusiasts from the launch of the first collection in 2009. An established architect turned jewelry designer, Elena Coleman Howell utilized her design prowis to conquer graphic design and architecture integration. The result was TOMTOM JEWELRY, a successful modern twist to retro creations that is giving jewelry lines everywhere a run for their money.

While it is easy to spot the detailed precision in certain aspects of the pieces, the jewelry isn’t overly industrial or masculine. There is an element to every piece that brings a beautiful and delicate strength to geometric shapes and hammered metal textures. The unique qualities of the ‘Future ’70s’ Collection include shimmered accents to offset spike designs, the use of hand tie dyed suede to offset the bold bronze chains and hardware and thin golden chains to add a dash of delicate femininity to a totally rocking necklace that can be dressed up, down and manipulated with every chosen ensemble! 

“Tribal Matters” ring. It’s available in seven different finishes, I suggest getting a variation of both gold and silver, and it’s just one of the stunning pieces Elena offers up on her website. $155.
