MNID Mixtape # 1

When I had my old fashion blog I got a little done talking about fashion at the time; and went ahead and started a small tumblr music blog with my best friend Adrian. It was bred out of our personal long distance friendship at the time, and we would periodically send each other mix tapes of things we were currently listening to, or mix CD's I should say by mail. It turned into a battle of who found the rare edits, and song selections, and the cool visual images that went along with our posts. For every monthly mixtape we would attach oil painting images from artist Jonathan Viner, who was one of my favorite artists at the time. It was a full pledged production.

We had such a great time making them, talking about them, and when he would visit in LA we would sit in the car and dissect, and OooOOo and Ahhh each other, as well as give each other the side eye when we heard something a little off in the mix. We had a pretty good run and following while it lasted, but since we were essentially giving away free music constantly (and not in that so legal way) we had to cease and desist and let our little music love child die.

Flower Power

Currently lusting for all things pictured here, which all consists of flower power and bits of rich colored reds for color. As the weather lightens up, so does the mood for spring time buys for fun quirky looks. Inspired from the #streetstyle power of LFW, I couldn't help draw inspiration. One day my bank account will allot for this $14k outfit ensemble.

Venezian Grounds

Venice California strums up that of nostalgic classic Cali landscapes, much like the romanticized scenes you find in the Californication sitcom with Hank Moody. Palm trees, endless ocean, the PCH, and all the gentrified parts mixed in a little tinge of ghetto (but hardly anymore) that belongs to the westside.

Grommets & Verticals

Ever since moving our offices from Beverly Hills to DTLA, my wardrobe choices have been changing a tad bit. Mostly entirely due to the choice of commuting by public transit whether by train or bus in conjunction with my skateboard. For those reasons my style has been a little bit more on the tom-boyish side, always incorporating my gray converse or my Sk8 HIs into my OOTDs.

Wanderlust Wednesday: Bali

Ubud Hanging Gardens Bali
It's no secret of mine that Bali is on my top 5 lists of places to visit. It's lush, green, and gorgeously scenic. There's bright colored temples that sit against the lush background—it literally looks like a slice of heaven. One of the amazing things about traveling to a place like Bali, is that it's amazingly cheap once you get there. The biggest cost would be a plane ticket, which will usually run you around $1000 + during peak traveling season (April-September) which is their dry season. October through March is rainy season and is their more undesirable time to travel. A friend told me that a person she knew was able to rent a dope little house with an infinity pool for $600/month.

My New Name is Dillon

First posts can be awkward, but I'm no stranger to this blogging thing.  A little late in the game maybe to start this all up again, but playing a little catch up never hurt anyone. But if you know me, you know that I started out doing a blog called Buttons & Bows back in 2009, which later on turned into an award winning designer resale shop in LA. Ahhh, RIP beloved shop. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about all the wonderful vintage designer stuff that flowed through our doors.  But as with life, there's ups and downs and lots of lessons in between to help you go back on to the path that you're meant for. As they say, life only gives you what you need at the right time. One of my resolutions this year was to finally start a new website. Another place to showcase my style, so they don't go to die in Instagram land, as well as a place to eventually showcase my portfolio of fashion brands I have helped create and currently manage. Whoever is following me on this fashion journey, thanks for tagging along for the ride.
