Precious Stones in Tunnels they Roam...

Recently started tagging along for the Green Couch Sessions, taking photos of these rad musicians in their stylish duds and do I ever feel lucky...
First to start this new Comparisonends venture was Behind Sapphire . Had such an awesome time with the crew of Green Couch and the band, check out the video at the Green Couch site.
Founders of the group Grant and Matt pose in their matching spray painted rain boots, couldn't help but smile with these two around. The whimsical child like touch these boys bring to their style equals a thumbs up in my books. I've always been attracted to the lose of seriousness in dress and daywear, this being a perfect example.
Lindsay (guitar/vocals) rocked some really cool vintage inspired duds. I loved the combination of the harder combat boots, black pants mixed with the more homely silk vintage blouse, pastel sweater.
Brayden (bass/vocals) struttin his stuff , you can really never go wrong with an animal tee.
Gillian (vocals) also owner for Grace Like Rain Accessories, plays it simple but sweet by pairing some pretty separates.
Bethany the photographer for the band, earthy and easy with a splash of red, I am diggin the worn combat boot, hiking sock combo. Nothing like an outfit that can go from the forest to the city.
Loved the colours in this shoot, pretty, pretty primaries.

Have to say I had a blast hangin out with Behind Sapphire, a group with amazing talent, positive energy and people who seem to know what it means to have some fun

A tribute to "the pink sheep of the family" Alexander McQueen

One year ago today the fashion world lost one of it's brightest lights.
A loss for fashion, a lost for art. Miss you.

"I kind of like it the way it is right now, ... I believe in that one-on-one sell. I don't really believe in flooding the market with loads of goods that don't mean much, and (you) lose your identity.”
