All of the music that got me through the month of June! And I say 'got me through' because sometimes that's exactly how it feels. Enjoy. 


2. This Adorable Make-Up Bag-


So cute, but so expensive! $34 for a make-up bag seems a tad excessive, don't you think?

5. The Nutshell Studies-


On a recent episode of 99% Invisible, I heard about 'The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death" & I was immediately fascinated. The Nutshell Studies are 18 handmade dioramas, a concept created by Frances Glessner Lee, to better understand crime scenes & thus, seek justice appropriately. The subject matter is admittedly morbid, but extremely fascinating & useful in the field of medical examining. I learned so much from that one episode! Check it out!

Film Fashion: The Women of Mad Max: Fury Road

This past weekend, I went to see the amazing new film, Mad Max: Fury Road. I was already pretty excited about the film (I wanted to see it before Avengers, so that should tell you something), but it absolutely blew all of my expectations out of the water. It was brutal & beautiful & really had a classic Mad Max flavor to it. If you're a fan of action films, good stories & complex characters, you're going to want to see this film!

In terms of costuming, I really dig whats going on in Fury Road. There are elements of the Steampunk aesthetic with veins of biker-style running through it. Below you'll find some wearable Wasteland fashion, inspired by none other than Charlize Theron's Furiosa & Riley Keough's Capable. Get in touch with your inner badass & enjoy!
