Wednesday Power Couple : Bruce & Demi.



Supposedly they broke up because she couldn't deal with his meandering ways; others say it was because she was off the deep end and he couldn't deal anymore. No matter what anyone says, when they were together, they were magnetic.
Enjoy today's power couple!

Monday Morning Love Story : Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton.

Two people who were so desperately right and wrong for each other at the same time, Richard Burton & Elizabeth Taylor's love affair was condemned by the Vatican as "erotic vagrancy". Upon their return from Montreal where they were finally married in 1964 they were attacked by an angry mob who tore one of Elizabeth's earrings out and beat on Richard. Their torrid marriage lasted 10 years and after they remarried in 1976, 5 months; they were nevertheless in each other's lives until his death in 1984 through love letters that they mailed to each other regularly, the last of which she reportedly received 3 days after his death. That letter's existence and content has been the subject of much dispute and urban legend itself; in the book Furious Love, written by Sam Kashner and Nancy Schoenberger it is said that " “In it, he told me what he wanted. Home was where Elizabeth was, and he wanted to come home [to me].” According to the authors, this letter – unseen by them – was so cherished that it was buried with the actress after her death last March.

Civil War Tintypes.


There's something so haunting about Civil War tintype photographs. The faces of the soldiers express hope, fear and a sense of patriotism that is not seen in modern soldier's faces today.

Presidents' Day Movie : Heathers.


"Real life sucks losers dry"
Today is Presidents' Day, one of those days that for puertoricans doesn't mean a lot, but we get at least a half day off, so I'm not complaining. Bring on the sun!

Spring 2014 Inspirations : Tropical Vintage.




There's something so nostalgically decadent about a great tropical print : the palms, the marred blend of colors, the carelessness of wearing it with anything, memories of that vacation that you took just after graduation, before life got so complicated. It didn't matter if you were on vacation and pegged a tourist for wearing a tropical print sarong/shirt/skirt/dress, with your tropical drink, on that tropical island: You were ON VACATION, and you were living it up like there was no tomorrow.

This spring is all about tropical graphic prints for me; albeit the 90's grunge influence is huge, with lots of denim, patchwork and bodysuits to go around at our shop, I have still found time to stock tropical prints in midi skirts, shirts and tops that will take you from the weird rain/sun weather we have been having lately, into the beautifully musty sunny days of spring.

more prints to feast your eyes on after the break:
