Beautiful Coral 1970s +BOHEMIAN GODDESS+ Summer Maxi Dress

 

For me the goddess is the female of God, She is powerful if different.
-Tina Turner

 

If you’ve had the chance to peruse our 2017 VINTAGE SUMMER LOOKBOOK perhaps you noticed this stunning 1970s coral maxi dress with sheer bell sleeves! 

It is such a phenomenal piece straight from the psychedelic 70s. If you haven’t noticed we’ve really been vibing for a psych rock summer, and this has all the appeal of a simpler, more beautiful, and compassionate time. 

We were lucky enough to have the beautiful and bold Raymona to show off its innate glory. 

 

And when we say Goddess – we don’t meant he domestic type. The E.O.F. +GODDESS+ is fearless and romantic- adventurous and educated. She loves the {PAST}, lives for the {PRESENT} moments and dreams for the {FUTURE}.

Most of all, she loves to have fun – and isn’t afraid to stand out in the crowd. In fact, she prefers it …and relishes in that very moment when everyone is asking – “who’s that stunning woman?” 

 

Luxury doesn’t have to come with a thousand dollar price tag. 

Luxury is the freedom to be you to the fullest, and the best expression of that is your style. 

Live out loud. Live free. We are stardust. We are golden (or in this case, maybe, coral)…

Remember friends . . .

{MUSIC MINUTE} “Woodstock” – Joni Mitchell

I came upon a child of God
He was walking along the road
And I asked him, where are you going
And this he told me
I’m going on down to Yasgur’s farm
I’m going to join in a rock ‘n’ roll band
I’m going to camp out on the land
I’m going to try an’ get my soul free
We are stardust
We are golden
And we’ve got to get ourselves
Back to the garden
Then can I walk beside you
I have come here to lose the smog
And I feel to be a cog in something turning
Well maybe it is just the time of year
Or maybe it’s the time of man
I don’t know who l am
But you know life is for learning
We are stardust
We are golden
And we’ve got to get ourselves
Back to the garden
By the time we got to Woodstock
We were half a million strong
And everywhere there was song and celebration
And I dreamed I saw the bombers
Riding shotgun in the sky
And they were turning into butterflies
Above our nation
We are stardust
Billion year old carbon
We are golden
Caught in the devil’s bargain
And we’ve got to get ourselves
Back to the garden

Diary of a Small Town – Vintage Dreams and Nightmares

We have quite the tale in store for you today at The Eye of Faith. This one is taken from the darkest depths of our imagination and tells the hidden tales of a quaint small town, not too far from where you sit. It could be any small town, but this one is brimming with mystery, and dare I say, perhaps even evil!

Things started out innocent enough, but there are certain places on this Earth where malevolent energies cluster and stay for many thousands of years. It is in the quiet of the country, far from the claws and chains of the city, that have provided families and individuals with the peace and calm they desire. But often times, it is the unsettling chill of calm that can provide the most fright.

Even in a town where everyone knows your name, you never know the myths and legends being made behind closed doors or the grim memories lost deep beyond the trees at night. This one is all about wayward youth, rebellion, seduction, secrets, mysteries, beauty, and strength.

To our vintage dreams, and  to our vintage nightmares – this one is to a town not yet forgotten. Keep the mystery close, for you never know what clues you may stumble upon. For all you know, they might still need your help.

E.O.F. STYLE IDOL: Speak of the Devil! Kenneth Anger’s Fornication with Fashion!

portrait of kenneth anger

Well, well…what have we here? Come back for some more?!

While we’re on the topic of Devils, it seems, we couldn’t resist bringing you this little niblit of the Film & Style Divine. Kenneth Anger. From “Invocation of My Demon Brother”, to “Fireworks”, “Lucifer Rising” , “Scorpio Rising”, and “Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome” – this auteur to the max has brought to the world an esoteric, rebellious, and divine sensibility to all of his works.

Inaugaration of the Pleasure Dome- Vintage

Inspiration we are still reaping today! Take for instance, Ryan Gosling’s iconic gold satin jacket with scorpion on the back in 2011’s “Drive” – it was Kenneth Anger’s “Scorpio Rising”, an experimental film made by Anger in 1963 about bikers, the occult, the underground, Catholicism, and Nazism that inspired the logo that would become synonymous with Gosling’s “Driver” character.

Scorpio Rising

Kenneth Anger- Scorpio Rising- Detail

Throughout his work you can see his love for cinema, for art, for style, for fashion, for creative people that don’t see the world the way other people do. People who gather together to be the truest, and most extreme versions of themselves they can be. It takes a true creative mastermind to bring that into fruition.

Blending the world of the occult with pop culture and art-house cinema, Anger’s films are all one-of-a-kind, kaleidoscopic dreams (and sometimes nightmares).

Scorpio Rising- Dandy

Anger_Invocation

For instance, take “Invocation of My Demon Brother” from 1969. With music by Mick Jagger (Rolling Stones Mick, Yes), and cameos by some of 1960s California’s most notorious esoteric celebrities including Founder of the Church of Satan, Anton LaVey (making yet another appearance here at EOF), and Bobby Beausoleil (later charged in committing a first degree murder with members of the “Manson Family ).

Invocation of My Demon Brother” is a rare glimpse into a dark underground world, as well as a visual poem to the horrors of War, humanity, and nature itself.

There’s nothing really to be scared of here. Just a bunch of Hocus-Pocus…Movie MAGIC, if you will. It’s really lucky to recieve an entire commentary on the film by the artist himself, as there are not many interviews with the often recluse director.

kenneth-anger-the light prince of darkness

Anger usually centres his work on ideas of the divine, spiritual, decadent, sexual, and supernatural. The now 86 year old auteur (Happy Belated! His birthday was February 3)  got his start in the glorious heydays of Hollywood Babylon itself, as the Changeling Prince in Max Reinhardt and William Dieterle’s 1935 adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.

Having seen the ins and outs of Hollywood and such a young age- a land full of magic, glamour, decadence, and of course, EVIL – it is fantastic to invite yourself into a Kenneth Anger piece, as you can always leave from it feeling a certain “je ne sais quoi”, as the French would say.

Lucifer Rising- Kenneth Anger

Scorpio Rising- Rebel Rousing

Inaugaration of the Pleasure Dome-Anger

The French, and Europe in general, have always lauded this Prince of Darkness for his unique dark styles, as well as humor (yes, Humor!). Though it took upward of 40 years (40 YEARS!!!), the Fashion World finally seemed ready to let out a little Anger, and the American Auteur was given the helms of a short fashion video for Missoni’s “A/W 2010-2011.

We’re having that “je ne sais quoi” type of feeling again, how about you? If you want to learn more about the dark Prince of style you can visit his official website here. And to buy his masterworks, click here.
