So, I can’t wait for the new Tron movie to come out. Mostly because it a) It looks awesome b) the music is awesome (by Daft Punk) c) I love neon  and d) tight leather catsuits. One of my favorite art cafes, Royal T in LA (Culver City, to be exact) has a Tron pop-up shop that is worth seeing if you are a mega fan. They have jewelry, shoes, clothes, t-shirts, artwork and headphones, as well as other stuff Tron-related. You may have seen Royal T in my past posts. If you are visiting LA, it’s not that far off, and is worth stopping in regardless of what exhibit is on. Anyway, Tron comes out December 16th- I’m so getting ready to go in the grid!

Umm… yeah, these are just random photos I ran into and wanted to share with you… Not sure if I have any words for these… I mean the umbrella ensemble is clearly appropriate for London. You could totally carry your own fishes around or fill with it with yummy punch. The mirror dress is perfect for a gyn or dentist. The last set of dresses are truly creepy. It’s sort of reminds me of that human centipede movie. That’s a movie I gotta see on an empty stomach- note to self.

In honor of the Audrey Tatou film, Coco Before Chanel (Coco avant Chanel), here are some interesting facts about my all-time favorite designer, Coco Chanel. I am so kookoo for Coco, that I used to draw the CC symbol on my ankle in the mid 90s! I wanted to get that tattooed eventually, but my fear of needles took over. So, the sharpie it was. Coco Before Chanel (Coco avant Chanel) opens in select US theaters on September 25, 2009.  Count me in on opening day!

1. She made the tan popular after retuning from a cruise to Cannes with a sunburn.

2. She was a Leo and collected anything with lions.

3. The shape of the  Chanel No.5 bottle  was in reference to Place Vendome.

4. She would have Chanel No. 5 sprayed throughout her home.

5. When Coco passed away, only 3 outfits were found in her Rue Cambon apartment.

6. In 1938, she started dating a Nazi officer named Hans Gunther Von Dincklage.

7. Until her death in 1971, her fashion empire brought in more than $160 million per year.

8. Before her designing career began, she worked in a small hosiery shop in France.

9.The Duke of Westminster painted CC and part of his crest in gold on all the lamposts in W1, London.

10. Coco’s real first name Gabriel. She got Coco from a song she performed in a musical called ‘Qui qu’a vu Coco’.

11. She loved pockets, most all her collections included pockets of some sort.

Here are my prized Chanel stockings :
