It’s not THAT cold yet in LA, so I can still get away with tiny knits and leather skirts.
If you’re looking for an amazing hat, check out Ashbury Hats! They’re made of premium quality leather in all kinds of styles great for any season. The lovely Ashbury team gave me the Van Ness in brown. I wanted the black first, but thought I needed a brown hat. Thank goodness it’s the kind of brown that blends in with whatever you pair it with.

Crazy for this sweater’s maaaaajor Givenchy vibes!! I am a lazy dresser, I say it all the time. So pieces like this are perfect for me because they make everything look like I actually tried :p
The lovely and super awesome Jane of Sway Chic hand picked this top and skirt for me and everything about it is just perfect!!!!!!! I’ve been looking for a nice plaid pencil skirt and I like this because it looks more like a geometric print. Plus the leather panels make it even more stand out. New clothes to use and abuse, pretty much.
“The way you’re singing in your sleep
The way you look before you leap
The strange illusions that you keep
You don’t know
But I’m noticing
The way your touch turns into arcs
The way you slide into the dark
The beating of my open heart
You don’t know
But I’m noticing”

Life is always better when you’re around. Someday, we will have goodnight kisses, instead of goodbye kisses.
This month, I’m so excited to interview the Los Angeles-based DJ duo: Rawtek. They’re young, definite eye candies, extremely talented and they make amazing music you just can’t help but dance to.
Levi and Daniel are artists that also create magic in different platforms like painting and drawing, and I personally think their eclecticism is pretty evident in their music. Read more into the process and progress of these emerging talents.
How do you get in the zone for a performance?
A pineapple, 3 shots of vodka, half of a pepperoni and a spicy chicken sandwich from Carls Jr.
When did you feel that music was your passion? Like it was what you were meant to do?
We were deep in the forrest with a native american shaman. This great shaman showed us a vision. This unexplainable vision has engulfed our thought processes and caused us to be absolutely infatuated with learning to know and create music in it’s most beautiful and lively forms.
5 year plan?
No body knows. Hopefully headline a massive festival deep within the south american jungle. And I mean deep.
If you could create a super group out of any musicians living or dead, who would you put in your group?
I don’t know about a super group, but we do have many influences and inspirations from all genres of music. To limit to one group would cause the sound to be absolutely vast. All the different emotions and styles brought into the productions would be beautifully interesting.
Why the name “Rawtek”?
I’ll just say these words, Raw. Drunk. Ilocano.
Tell me about your new song
Our most recent release was an electro house remix of FYOR’s single, titled “Merica.” We will be releasing a lot of new productions and possibly a new EP in the near future, ranging from house, jungle house, trap, & experimental hip-hop.
Where can we find your stuff?

I should be tired of this skirt, sad to say I still have 20 other outfits I have in mind for this. Bear with me!
If you follow me on instagram, you know I’ve been sporting some pretty bad ass accessories recently, these are all from Viva La Manika – an accessories line from the Philippines that literally make “art” wearable. VLM interviewed me as their Manika of the Month. Here’s a snippet of the Q & A.
