this is our jam // white sea - warsaw

we’re currently coveting local LA singer/songwriter white sea’s new album, in cold blood. also known as morgan kibby of M83, white sea is a singer, songwriter, producer, and classically trained pianist who just closed out an f’in killer residency at the bootleg theatre in silver lake. while the entire album is chock full of gorgeously arranged, beautifully and heartbrokenly written, yet danceable jams, we are particularly in love with “warsaw.”

at first it seems strange to hear such a beautiful voice singing dark, i’mma cut you lyrics like “i’ll drink your wine and i’ll slap your wrists / i’ll spin your clocks and i’ll gut your fish / i’ll fuck you blind and make a run for it,” but it’s this kind of dichotomy that makes white sea such an interesting artist. not to mention, you know how much we enjoy a healthy f-bomb or two from an unexpected source.

as an artist’s artist and strong feminine figure, morgan kibby is also unashamed to admit a love for the music of britney spears to refinery 29, and for that, we respect her even more. now, join us in our unabashed fan girldom and get to listenin’.

maternity style // f-bombs & cupcakes

maternity style // f-bombs & cupcakes

maternity style // f-bombs & cupcakes

our very first maternity style post! first and foremost, let’s get down to the nitty gritty – shopping for maternity clothes kinda sucks. finding anything past basic tanks or leggings can be super expensive, not to mention perusing most maternity clothing retailers leaves you feeling as though all pregnant women must want to dress like 50-year-olds. we like to think that over the course of the last several months we’ve gotten this maternity fashion buying thing pretty well conquered, so in the next few style posts we’ll be sharing some tips we’ve picked up along the way.

this dress was one of our first maternity purchases & therefore a bit of a splurge (though it’s now on sale, score for other mama f-bombs!). we edged it up with shit-kickin booties, badass baubles, and a neon accented clutch.

pregnancy announcement // an f-bomb in the oven

 

no, your eyes do not deceive you, and no that bulging little bump was not caused by overdoing it on tequila & macarons – WE’RE HAVING A BABY F-BOMB! well, one of us is. the other is just pointing at it.

mama erin & auntie heather are so excited to finally shout the news from these stuccoed LA rooftops, and to deliver you a little dose of maternity fashion combined with our regularly scheduled programming – sprinkled, as always, with a delightful dash of crass. and now for the fun stuff: here’s everything we know so far about this little bundle of cuss-word laced joy

  • IT’S A BOY!
  • he’s scheduled to grace us with his precious little presence on september 30, 2014
  • his name is smith (no, goddammit, not like the character on sex and the city. well…yes. kind of. it is a little bit like that.)
  • months before his baby shower, he is already the proud owner of 20 onesies, one baby leather jacket, 9 pairs of pants, 8 pairs of shoes, and 3 awesome beanies…so get ready for some pretty intense baby style around these parts
  • at 27 weeks along, this lil guy is just about to enter the third trimester
  • most missed foods include real coffee, blue cheese, sashimi, runny eggs…and dat tequila
  • pregnancy symptoms have been kind to us thus far – no morning sickness, just some minor aches & pains that prenatal yoga & running have been helping with

baby is doing great, kicking up a storm, and getting chubbier by the day until it’s time for his f’in debut.

bleachers - rollercoaster

we have something to share and we’d like you to listen closely, because this shit right here just doesn’t come around very often. we can tell you, without a shadow of a doubt, that after listening to this week’s edition of this is our jam, you, fair reader, will have your summer 2014 anthem on lock. yeah, you heard us right. this song is so good that we are making statements this bold.

from the very first time we heard “i wanna get better” by bleachers, we were excited about this band. a side project begun by jack antonoff of fun., this is very un-fun.-like music, or, as TIME put it: “more fun than fun.” but the newest single from bleachers, “rollercoaster,” is what really sold us: this song is a soaring, summer-y jammy jam that will make you want to run down the beach, arms waving triumphantly above you in the air, splashing water at passersby and making out with your summer lover in the salty ocean water. this may sound like an oddly specific emotional sequence, but trust us, you will experience all of these things and more upon first listen.

do yourself a favor and click on the link below to begin your summer love affair with bleachers (who we can’t wait to see at outside lands in august).

allsaints is like your friend’s bad ass, muscle car-driving, chain-smoking older sister you idolize as a child. it’s cool and confident while also being just out of reach. entering one of their stores is always a danger: while the prices might make it a bit of a splurge, the quality and effortlessly cool cut and draping of the garments justify them in return.

i (heather) couldn’t resist picking up this black silk button-up dress on a trip to allsaints in malibu. it’s a classic dress that can easily take me from work to cocktails, all while imparting a subtle message of “i’m not afraid to cut a bitch.” as such, i cannot wear it without friends whispering “you are the next supreme” (if you haven’t watched american horror story: the coven, please do), which might bother some, but frankly pleases me to no end. i pair it with my witchiest alexander wang booties to live up to the character: guess i know what i’m going to be for halloween.

dress: allsaints; necklace: zara; sunglasses: forever 21; shoes: alexander wang.
