Philip Crangi

Looking for inspiration? I got it right here. No one has really heard of Philip Crangi. He is a rustic dude specializing in rugged, weathered jewelry for men. I usually hate jewelry on men, but his tough pieces silence my doubts. Not only are his designs interesting, his personal style is really wicked too. He has really cool hair and is loaded with tattoos. In my opinion, tattoos should only be done in black. This is why I love Crangi's tattoo across his chest, which translates to, "I Regret Nothing." Well, neither do I Philip! Check him out for yourself! The Crangi Family Project is located in the Meatpacking District of New York.

I honestly can't believe I am writing this post because I hate trends, I try not to follow them and I think it is annoying that every fashion blog I read talks about TRENDS, TRENDS, TRENDS. My philosophy is be yourself, be original, have your own style and most importantly; be confident rocking it. I wouldn't call what I am posting today TRENDS because I rarely see peeps on the street wearing this, especially white jeans in the middle of winter, but these are the things I love and I hope you love them too.

For starters, navy blue mixed with black is dope. My friend from Oslo that went to Parson's with me always wore black and navy together and totally rocked it. The combination is different and NOT A TREND. But maybe you can start one by rocking it by your bad self.

Secondly, socks pulled over baggy trousers is really dope. I am really into tonal colors at the moment so if you rock a pair of dark trousers, offset it with a pair of socks that are a shade lighter. As the picture notes, belts around the socks also look dope. I love, love, love this!

Lastly, white jeans have always received controversy. I always remember my mom telling me that I couldn't wear white after Labour Day (US holiday). Who makes these rules? I've always loved white denim, especially when it looks used and rugged. I had the coolest pair specially made from Earnest Sewn and then my fat ass ripped them on the dance floor at Sway a few years ago. I've never replaced them but now I want to after seeing a pair rocked with a leather motorcycle jacket.

Although I am a hater, these are my loves. Stay tuned for my hates next time! Catch ya later skater...

I am constantly in search of new inspiration and happened to come across this amazing blog, The concept behind the blog is delivered through the use of highly stylized graphic designs that compare the two very different and diverse cities. I have attached a few images that depict the conceptualization. In a way it makes me nostalgic for good ole New York, but on the other hand, I just have to think of all the annoyances (homeless people begging for cash, grouchy UES ladies that have never worked a day in their life, pretentious wanna be's at the club, white collar bankers that tell you how much they make before they ask you for your name, overpriced rent, overcrowded retardoness, psycho girls that stalk you, rude cab drivers...shall I continue???)and I am blistfully happy that I have uprooted my life to Scandinavia. I think we all can see that I am in Paris's corner! Anyway, these graphics are mad funny and if you have ever experienced either city, you will conclude that the images are very accurate indeed. It would behoove you to check, check, check it!

Are you into nails or cigs?

This is sooooo accurate! Good one!

Every Thursday, Jolene hosts a gay, straight, bi, tranny, granny party...basically what I am trying to convey is that it is for everyone! Lucky for me and good for you, the Jolene staff asked me to DJ. So if you are in Copenhagen on Thursday, January 20th, I will be spinning from 10-3, playing some dope shit and some really fresh a bit of Riders on the Storm with a Billy Jean mix...very interesting stuff!
Jolene is located in the meatpacking district of Copenhagen. It is one of my favorite places in Denmark so be sure to stop by and say hello to moi and all the hot grannies, trannies, straights, gays and bis.
