TOP 7 / FANCY PANTS

what I love about statement pieces like these fancy pants is that they make an outfit all on their own. You don’t need much else to pull off a fun look. I’m pretty much into the 1st pair, love the yellow stripes. Which one would you dare to wear? –stephanie

FUN FACT FRIDAY / 04

before you head out for the weekend we wanted to share this cool story with you about gram parsons. we were talking about his embellished nudie suit after i saw jenny lewis in concert last weekend and fell in LOVE with her gram parsons inspired costumes.

gram parsons is a rock legend and the story of his burial is just as legendary. in his short life he made waves as a solo artist, member of The Byrds and The Flying Burrito Brothers. at just 26 he died of an overdose at the joshua tree inn, a place he loved.

his friends, including manager phil kaufman, stole parsons’ body from the tarmac at LAX by impersonating the mortuary workers before it was going to be shipped to Louisiana (against his stated wishes). then, they drove parsons’ body out to joshua tree in a cadillac hearse where parsons and kaufman had agreed that they would each burn the other’s bodies. they poured gas into Parsons’ casket and threw in a lit match.

after a few days they were taken into custody, but at that time there was no law against stealing a body and they were only fined $750. in true rock and roll style they raised the money for his fine by throwing a party called kaufman’s koffin kaper koncert. pretty wild, right?!
