Shield me from the cold...

The hooded cloak has dominated my mind all winter. A secret dark void to shield from the harsh cold. I've been dreaming about the druid hood shape in particular. I first saw it in some drawings by Goya and thought what a wonderfully creepy look. Daniel Palillo and Olmar and Mirta are the closet things to what I want. Unfortunately I was outbid on the Olmar and Mirta. I have no idea were to find their garments other than what they do for Rick Owens. So how happy was I to find this amazing plaid mohair wool cape! My desire is quenched for now. Here are a few covet worthy contenders.

Magic Crystals

I'm not usually drawn to jewelry. But when I discovered UNEARTHEN I was memorized. They feature precious crystals combined with empty bullets for a truly mystical piece. Be sure to checkout their site. It's so beautifully put together. There are charts for all the healing properties of each type of crystal. To my surprise style favorite Kate Lanphear was photographed wearing a Unearthen piece!

More Goliath....

Goliath needs a proper closeup photo before they get worn to death....


Todays outfit consists of a beige hooded tunic I found yesterday. I love hooded apparel for winter! I layered it with this thin knit nude top. It has an amazing cut that drops down in two peaks. On another note this is my favorite leather jacket of the moment. It's so buttery soft, fits perfect and has all the right cuts. Inspiration comes from Rick Owens.
