Hunx and His Punx



"Neon Baroque"

I typed the words "Neon Baroque" into google images, and discovered they translated into images with the aesthetic I was trying to convey in this post. The aesthetic is incorporating this new trend of neon (in art, fashion, and home decor), but with a punk/Sex Pistols - "God Save the Queen" and French Baroque styling. Anyways, I dig it, especially these mirrors I've posted below. I've seen this same style by Design of Love, Stephen Sprouse for Louis Vuitton, and in this image. What are these juxtapositions in styling about? Seems like it's a comment on society, classism, art, and fashion. I'd say the Baroque era was very "Trickle Down," and I love the fact that today art and fashion seem to be very "Trickle Up".

Marc Newson x Pentax

I was lucky enough to check out the new K-01 Pentax by Marc Newson at A+R Store in Venice last week. A+R's site has all the camera deets, but man was it amazing! I want one so bad, especially since my digital camera is out of commission! Here are a few pix from around the house that day.

Celeb Roomies

The blog One Fine Day posed the question,  
"If you could choose any celebrity as a roommate, who would it be?"

What a fun question! I've gone on to ask my friends, and my co-workers. The answer can really tell you a lot about someone! 

My bestfriend: Mila Kunis

Aaaaand I picked Anna Faris, totally based on her personality on the big screen. I obviously have no idea what she's like in real life. Aaaaalthough she is married to Chris Pratt, who is on Parks & Rec, which is MY FAVORITE SHOW EVER, so she must be pretty cool in real life. Also I couldn't roomie with her and her husband, so this is hypothetically the "single" Anna Faris from basically all of her films. I pretty much just imagine us laughing at everything. Leading our own lives, but still hanging out on random week nights or weekend days. Below is what our lives would look like. hahahah. 
WHO WOULD BE YOUR CELEB ROOMIE???
