Super mini-dresses and frocks with crazy prints
My faves right now are courtesy of Rojas and a line called Fresh Karma. I have super long legs, so the shorter the dress the better. Bright colors give my summer tan more jouge. Jack Davey

Feather hair clips
My fave hair accessory: two feathers with beaded leather straps connected to a gold clip that attaches easily to my long mohawk mane. I usually pick these up at Urban Outfitters–that store is great for fun accessories. Jack Davey

High-waisted denim bell skirts
I just got a light blue denim bell with big buttons down the front. I throw it on with either an American Apparel tube top or halter. I have a small waist so the high-waist cut and bell give me a little curve. Jack Davey

Classic lingerie pieces (i.e. long floral silk robes, 1-piece lace bodices)
Classic lingerie says, “I'm a classy lady with a wild side.” They are sultry and sophisticated sexy. There's nothing like waking up on a Sunday morning in a lacy black one-piece , then throwing on the floor length silk robe when it's time to hit the kitchen and make breakfast. Generally, I find the robes at vintage stores and I get the one-piece lacys at small lingerie boutiques like Faire Frou Frou in LA. Jack Davey

Boxing Kitten printed shorts
Boxing Kitten is a line by a friend of mine. The cut is high-waisted and the prints are different African kinte-like designs. Très adorable! Jack Davey

Ruffle blouses
I love to cross the Victorian style with bohemian, so I have ruffle blouses in a few different styles. Plus, ruffle shirts are perfect for tucking in to high-waisted things. Jack Davey

Gold gladiator flats
Gold is a great summer color and my ankle-high gladiator sandals are comfy to throw on with my mini-dresses. Today’s fave pair are from Zara. Jack Davey

Mixing silver and gold jewelry
I used to be only be a fan of silver, but I started finding lovely gold pieces and the contrast against the silver seems to make the gold pop a lot more. Brooke D’Leau

Fashion/art blogs
I'm constantly online peeping fashion and art blogs. They keep me up to date on older and newer trends. I use them as forms of inspiration not only for my style, but also for my music. Brooke D’Leau
