DIE ON A ROPE



Topshop blazer, American Apparel t-shirt dress, Miu Miu platform halter clogs, Fendi sunglasses, gifted butterfly knife pendant from Blood Milk, vintage accessories.



I can't begin to describe how stoked I am on this necklace, not to mention Blood Milk's other creations. Unparalleled in their quality and uniqueness, J.L. Schnabel's designs will appeal to fans of Pamela Love and Chris Habana alike; however, with a penchant for the macabre, the supernatural, and the classically beautiful, Schnabel is in a category of her own. The detail on this butterfly knife necklace is outstanding. The knife is real and fully-functioning (razor-sharp blade and all), and like many other Blood Milk pieces, is oxidized to perfection. In addition to the heart-and-swords charm above the knife, there is a tiny religious pendant on the other end of the vintage brass chain that lays on the wearer's back. Little features like these affirm the obvious: this is a special piece, painstakingly crafted by a true artist.





You never have to worry about wearing a design you know is a beaten and dead horse, because Schnabel's creations exist in very limited quantities -- once they're gone, they're gone, and she moves onto something else amazing instead of rehashing the same thing again. Expect to see many more Blood Milk treasures featured on here in the near future.



About time I debuted these Miu clogs! They are worth the hype in every way: remarkably comfortable, sufficiently sky-high, and garner tons of compliments (while my husband and I were having ice cream out front, one passer-by remarked, "Those are fantastic, where in 1975 did you get them?!).



Don't let the towering wood heel on these beauties intimidate you -- the gargantuan platform compensates so you don't feel like you're on a ski slope. I love the rich camel hue .. unfortunately, I'm STILL in search of The Perfect Brown Bag.





The unsinkable Jas M.B. leather tote.





That's all for tonight ... be well. &hearts

By the way, your hair always looks so lovely, how do you style it and what products do you use?

I always like your jewelry. This one IS truly unique. I think I would feel like I were on a ski slope with those platforms, regardless if they are comfy :)

Julia said...

I absolutely love the warm brown tones with your hair. The Blood Milk piece is true love, honestly -- and the shoes. I shan't get started bc I'm poor and can't afford them, BUT ONE DAY. THEY WILL. BE MINE. Nothing I love more than a clog, girl. You look stunning.

OMG, Hal, we love the same thing! I have these Miu Miu platform sandals in brown leather with red satin on reserve, but have not bought them yet. Please tell me if I should. I love the look a lot. Are they comfy?

Hey Hallie!
Congratz on your pregnancy--you look beautiful. I'm thinking of you and your family especially today since Robbie's getting married today. Maybe you're there too, soaking up the sun on this gorgeous day? I hope you're well. I think of you often.

Take really good care!
