I bought the debut album of Santogold a while ago and I lOVE IT! Her influence was, as she described herself, reggae, new wave, pop music and artists like Aretha Franklin, James Brown and Blondie. She has toured with M.I.A. (one of her good friends as you can see on the picture), Björk, Architecture in helsinki and she will be the opening act of Coldplays’ Viva La Vida tour in North America.

Her top songs are according to me:

L.E.S. Artistes

Lights Out

Shove it

 

Go visit her MySpace

My music :)

Heartbeats – Jose Gonzalez
 

This song, Heartbeats, is originally from ‘The Knife’, but personally I think this version of José Gonzalez is better.  Just because it’s so simple and pure.. Enjoy

I’m all into checks and plaids lately,really been obsessed by it ever since I found this picture on Stockholm Streetstyle.  The girl mixed a plaid ‘dress’ with a plaid jacket.  That with the hat and the (fake?) fur jacket just looks amazing!

the fit

 

If you want style advice from some of the greatest artists, you should check out the MySpace of The Fit! Artists like Kate Nash, Yelle, Fergie, Katy Perry, … take you shopping and show you what they like. The Fit is a part of MySpace Fashion, a site with high fashion, great fashion tips, designers, fashion news and tons of fashion vids! 

 

 

 

 

Who What Wear

Another site you should definitely surf to is WhoWhatWear.com, a site full of great style tips! You can even ask a stylist how you should wear that new trend, or wether you should throw away last season’s lipstick. With a bit of luck, they choose your e-mail and your question will be answered. Another great category is What Was She Wearing. If you saw a celebrity wear the shoes or dress you’ve been searching for, just send an e-mail and find out where she got it!

Bazaar !! That’s my style

I just bought this book called ‘Bazaar Style’ from Selina Lake, Joanna Simmons and photographer Debi Treloar and I absolutely love it.  You find so much inspiration in it.  This is totally my style..  It comes in very handy especially now because I’m redocorating my room (or at least trying to :))

The style is a merge of classic design pieces and vintage finds for example at flea markets.  Create your own personal style but remember that the colors always have to fit, you can’t just put everything you found together and hope that it works.

Why call this style bazaar?  Well, the word bazar means market.  And when you look at Moroccan market you can see that every market stall has limited space and therefore puts a lot of different product in the same place (If you still don’t have a clue what I’m talking about, just look at the picture on the right and you’ll get it :))

 

 

 

 So feel inspired and start redecorating those rooms

Love, D
