Fall in love with FLANNEL Australia

My fashion brain broke when I had the opportunity to take in the grace and luxe of the what was recently deemed “Best Boutique in LA 2013” by LA Weekly.

FLANNEL is nestled in an unassuming storefront on the lovely Abbott Kinney Blvd in Venice, CA.  I spent some time in the store for their Style Night and coinciding Menswear Launch, and was so thrilled with what I found.

The point of view is clear the moment you dive into the racks. Not only does every piece fit into your current closet immediately, but they are truly works of art in every aspect of design and construction. The fabrics are exquisite,  the softest woven rabbit furs and leathers feel like heaven, and the fit does not disappoint.

Celebs and We should all be so lucky to have some Flannel in our closets, for it is the clothing of our innermost Queens… you too boys.

Now enjoy some highlights from past and current collections.

Tie One On

Ah finally fashion meets function with this weeks favorite Fall/Winter trend. Its one thats been hanging around for years, literally, but it officially has its place in the blog and style world as seen on celebs and models alike. We also can finally bust the myth that you only tie one on to cover a booty or hide your legs… not true, this fashion trend is for anyone who feels they might need an extra layer (functional) and can add just the right pop to any ordinary outfit!

Side note: I use this tactic for extra visibility while I ride my bike. Tie on a graphic black and white print and your much easier to see riding at night.


Favorite find here is designers Kastor & Polluz’s take on the tie around craze. Love the graphic black and white.

Boys; this one is for you too! This trend has been spotted on multiple male celebs like Kanye, and Bieber (if you care).




Cassie is one mega hottie who nails the look here; popping her reds and mixing in leather.
