Lucite Meets Leather In WeHo

Lucite Meets Leather

Every year I look forward to the West Hollywood Citywide Garage Sale and this year did not disappoint! I found the Lucite side-table hiding under some hats, just waiting for me to spend $30 on it. I've been looking for YEARS for some Lucite pieces, so this was a SCORE! At the end of the next day, I discovered this antique Egyptian camel saddle for only $10!!! It belonged to the owner's grandparents, who brought it back from a trip over 40 years ago. Amazing how it all goes together in my living room, next to the free chair I got from a neighbor many years ago.

Hei Finland!

Finnish Fashion

Et voila! Earlier this year I was interviewed and photographed wearing my own second-hand fashion finds, by the Finnish women's magazine, Kauneus & TerveysSharing some Bohemian wisdom and general grooviness, I discussed such things as how I never go in the sun without my parasol, wear sunscreen everyday (the most natural I can find), love Korean spas, my treasure-hunting prowess (like my $30 Gucci dress from Crossroads Trader), and among my many inspirations, Jane Birkin and Frida Kahlo, two strong and stylish women. 

Taking over the world and turning it Bohemian, one country at a time... Miss Absinthe

note - In the article my name is spelled wrong. Sinclaire has an e at the end. Without that tiny little vowel, I become a boy.
