McQueen, Skulls, and Marilyn

One of my fashion mags boldly stated "Skulls are Out" in their July issue. Obviously, they had not seen McQueen's latest. If you ask me, skulls are always in.

Skulls are eternal....I'm obsessed with medieval skull jewelry and art :-) Love that bag.

It also comes in black, but the red just does it for me. You know your Onyx skull ring (price by request) -- any chance there'd be a "street version" coming out some day?

I absolutely love the Marilyn/skull tee, but it's a rip-off of a Misfits album cover: http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll66/tomiganster/1176298175_f.jpg

They were also obsessed with Marilyn, so I don't think it's a coincidence!

Laura, thanks for that -- I had never seen it before and had no idea. While it's not exactly a rip-off, the concept is the same. Picasso said: "Good Artists borrow, Great Artists Steal", but I've never been quite comfortable with that maxim.

skulls will never go out of style! McQueen's racerback tank is totally a summer must-have.
