Bosom Band, music from the heart. This original Philadelphia eclectic group modernizes the nostalgia of juke-joint blues. The band mixes their originals with a truelly unique take on timeless treasures. Live performance is a must see. This working band featuring Monica Lynne Chase & Dan Michael will have you swooning and pleading for an encore.
It’s fall. It’s our favorite time of year for style.
And being stylish doesn’t mean you have to rock the labels.
It’s the time to have a list of specifics
Write your specs list and keep it your pocket.
Monica does this because she is always walking around and will stumble upon awesome sidewalk and yard sales, new thrift, consignment, and junk stores. If you don’t have your list how are you going to spread the $20 in your pocket wisely?
"I love thrift shopping but if I don’t have a few specific things in mind that I’m looking for I end up filling a cart and spending all my money. It’s easy to do. I keep all my money in my dressing room and no food in the house"
Fall is all about layering. So think about things like these to have on your list
*Leather (belts, bags, accents, jackets)
*Velvet ( dress, shawl, skirt, shirt, tie, shoes, jacket, bag, gloves, scarf)
*Studs, Rivets, and Spikes (accented on anything)
*Shark-skin Shiny Stuff (that material that is almost iridescent. If I see a well tailored shark-skin suit on a dude … SEXY… look out he’s mine)
*Silk & Satin (use in moderation, think scarf, bowtie, clutch, pieced in a shirt)
*Fingerless Gloves (in leather, velvet, with studs, lace, silk, and satin)
I know what you’re thinking, not exactly specific, but come on now, you have to kinda know what your own style is. Are you a sweet and neat type? A girlie Goth? A renaissance rough neck? A classic roc n roller? If you don’t really know what your type is checkout this here site:
