Music Monday { Sleeptheif }

I’d like to say that Utah provides some killer talent in music. And maybe they do? However, to mine own ears David Archuleta, Neon Trees & The Used ( to name a few ) don’t count in my book. It seems like now we’ve hit the ultimate high with this “folk” phase. And everyone and their sister is wearing, singing and acting “modern folk”. Yes, I’ve rolled my eyes at this more than a few hundred times. Just walk downtown Provo and you will all know exactly what I mean.

I’d like to say that was the end of my Utah music stint and I can stand fast in knowing I couldn’t possibility like anything from this overly Mormon populated state BUT Justin Elswick the master mind from Sleeptheif has thankfully proven me wrong. Time and time again, album after album I have enjoyed on repeat all that Sleeptheif has to offer. I have never been disappointed, and remix after remix continue to look forward to Justin’s next track. So what do I say to all this, I say “Come out come out wherever you are.” If there is music like this hiding among the folk hash that Utah is currently providing, please show yourself. You’ll have a keeper in me forever.

Wearing Lilly Pulitzer

I’ve been on the hunt for the past month to find some new dresses. I’ve spent many hours ( more than I would like to admit to ) looking for somethings I like. Most are not modest enough or the wrong color, wrong length, wrong cut… just wrong really. I can admit, Lilly’s dress doesn’t even quite work BUT regardless I crave it and would love to sport it around downtown SLC. I just need to hook up with some new shoes, Christian Louboutin anyone?

Handwritten Lettering

If I had it to do over again, I might have become a calligrapher. You know, one of those posh people who can use pen & ink to create something with their fingers and hands. Max’s video is earth shattering, and this is coming from a designer who isn’t easily impressed.

So take a deep breath… Grab a cushy seat & enjoy.
