This was way back in 2014 for Supercrawl here in Hamilton, ON. James Street sure was the shit back then – still kind of is, but it definitely had a bit more grit than you might find nowadays.

It was the year we also had the opportunity to style Mr. Charles Bradley after his luggage was lost on his way into the city. Remember it being so sad to hear that this legend of soul passed back in 2017…we will be forever grateful for that opportunity and being in the pure presence of this legend!!!

Fatefully we would also have the pleasure of running into the stylish foursome – “The Beaches” whose lead singer walked away with that smashing shiny black PVC trench coat (made in Switzerland if my memory serves me correct) and wore it for their kick ass performance, which I was privy to watch, as well as sneak some behind the scenes takes.

So lets give it up for Jordan, Eliza, Kylie, and Leandra for all their wicked success since! As well as winning Best Breakthrough Group at the 2018 Juno Awards, the group has also been centred out by an extremely prominent rock n roll rebel icon … Sir Elton John!

In fact, he can’t stop gushing about them….

Great job!

Too many thots in the mist…

Just a thought.

Love how they always sport a bit of a vintage edge like any cool Toronto girl would, and of course should! Check out their videos below.

Their latest, “Snake Tongue”, which is an epic ballad for the young millenial woman (“Stop sending me all your dick picks 
They are boring me to pieces”) followed up by the song that caught the attention of Elton John – “T-Shirt”! Love the video for that one since they do a cool throwback to 70s television music showcases.

Lets give these bad ass ladies some love, shall we?

Until next time,

Friendly Update from Yours Truly {theEye} . . . Happy Holidays, and Thanks for a Sweet Year!!!

Bruce Lee in 1970s Black and White Floral Graphic Shirt- Vintage Mens Inspiration- Th Eye of Faith Blog

As you may have noticed, we’ve been a little tardy on updating the blog.

Not to worry, we are still very much present . . . buzzing around in the background; making strides everyday we survive this crazy world.

For the past, nearly two months now, we have been without a charger for our computer, which has made things quite “unique”, to say the least. Yes, we do have very kind friends who do let us borrow their’s when the time permits, but overall, we’ve been struggling to keep the battery alive to do as much as check our email, do a Facebook update or two, and regular maintenance on our Etsy shop.

All this has left little opportunity to do what we so love – what started it all – which is keep the site updated with awesome vintage inspiration! But fear not, we will tread on, and hopefully by the New Year we will be back to our consistent selves.

In the meantime, there are nearly a thousand posts from the {PAST} you can delve yourselves into by perusing the backlog, or use the sidebar on the left to discern your gaze to the many particular categories we have offered over the years. Our personal favourite, E.O.F. Style Idols & Divinities, is much recommended reading.

We have been doing a lot of cool stuff (like styling Charles Bradley and The Beaches for Hamilton’s Supercrawl), and creating epic fashions shows which we will update the site with in the coming weeks.

Overall, we can’t complain. Other than the time its taking for our charger to make it to us from China!!! What a pain . . .

But you know what? We’ll survive… After all, we’ve survived much worse.

So keep in touch! We’ll be around.

Hope you all have a Happy Holidays, and can’t wait to see your bright shining minds back again!

Until we meet again,

{theEye}
