{STYLE IDOL} ELVIS PRESLEY: ON THIS DAY A KING WAS BORN!

That’s right! On this day. . . January 8, 1953 a KING was born. King of so many things… King of Rock N Roll, King of Hearts, King of his own castle (GRACELAND which you can still visit today), and most definitely KING OF STYLE!

To this day, his classic American style has us all under his influence whether we know it or not. His looks are nonchalant, timelessly cool, and bold without making a fuss. Say it with a colour, a ring,  a texture, a pattern, or better yet…a single look.

And that hair! It’s a god damn work of art. . . we can only dream.  Elvis definitely appreciated the importance of looking good to feel good, and every once in a while, have some fun and take the plunge…

In honor of this KING OF COOL, here’s a sweet little gallery of some of his hot looks for your viewing pleasure and eternal inspiration!

 

That’s enough inspiration to get you through at least this next decade!

Not everyone is as bold or brave(or cool), however this Capricorn King was doing it with his eyes closed. Sadly, Elvis Aaron Presley died prematurely at the age of 42 on August 16, 1977.

He is remember today for his timeless music and style. 

“You’ve got to follow that dream, wherever that dream may lead to.”

-Elvis Presley

Until next time,

MUSIC MINUTE {Birthday Edition}: HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID BOWIE!

David Bowie 1963

It’s hard to believe that the Starman is 66 years old today (That’s one 6 away from being the Antichrist – powerful stuff . . .)! Not too many seniors look as god damn good as this odd fellow – it’s hard to believe he’s a day over 30, still.

If looks could kill, there would be a lot of people dead from Bowie’s one-of-a-kind style sensibilities he rocked throughout the 60s and 70s; embracing androgyny and flashing it up to the max. And yet, his way has become a sort of classic in our day and age, and you can still look back and aspire to his flamboyant elegance . . .

Bowie has released a brand new single today, as well, entitled “Where Are We Now?” (good question), but in true Eye of Faith style I think we need to take it back a little and celebrate Bowie in all his Glamour Glory!

Please enjoy . . .

“I don’t know where I am going from here, but I can promise it won’t be boring.”

-David Bowie.

Sincerely,
