A fashion post on PreciousXing? No way! =P
It's true I'm not much of a fashionista, I like my wardrobe but I admitt I don't put half as much effort into dressing up as I should. I like my simple white tees and jeans and colouring them up with jewelery and scarves. But that doesn't mean I don't have an interest in these things!
Nicole Richie is one of my favourite style icons! I think she has amazing style and well, creating her own fashion (Winter Kate) and jewellery (House of Harlow 1960) line among other things is reason enough to inspire me =)
Here are just a few pieces from her jewellery line, House of Harlow, in case you haven't seen them before:
I would love to be as confident in my own skin and comfortable with everything I wear as she is. It's admirable when a girl can take dead plain clothing and make them into a completely unique and gorgeous outfit. Here are just a few shots that I love of her (particularly her outifts!)
Anyway, my main point for this post is that I'm excited to hear that Benji and Joel (Nicole's fiance) are soon introducing their own fashion line for women! As a fan of GC for many years and understanding how down to earth and hard working these guys are I'm excited to see what they come up with. I have no doubt that even though Nicole is not part of the designing and production of this line, she will have influence on some part. Even just having Joel around her would have some effect on his perception of womens fashion. I'm hoping that this line will produce some more wallet-friendly pieces that are somewhat similar in style to Winter Kate. Here is what people.com had to say;
"When it comes to fashion, Good Charlotte’s Joel and Benji Madden seem to have mastered the laidback rocker vibe, and with the launch of their new Mad Picks capsule collection, the musicians are suggesting that the ladies follow suit. Teaming with Macy’s private brand American Rag, the guys have handpicked items from the collection for a limited-edition collaboration–just in time for back-to-school shopping! The line features on-trend boho vests, torn denim, and embellished tops. “I don’t care how a girl dresses, nothing is sexier than a girl who is confident, feels good about herself, and does things her own way,” says Joel, who is engaged to style maven Nicole Richie. “I love it when a girl can take simple basic pieces and wear them with her own style.” When it comes to their own unique look, it’s all about clothes that can be dressed up or down. “We like a T-shirt you can throw a jacket over for dinner,” adds Joel. “It’s important for us to have clothes which we can both walk on stage or relax at home.” Starting September 11, the brothers will have a chance to flex their style muscle on stage, when they perform in a series of free concerts at select Macy’s stores, showcasing tunes from their new album Cardiology, due November 2. Mad Picks will launch at select Macy’s stores and on macys.com August 25!"

For those lucky enough to live nearby I went searching for the dates!
The Madden twins will perform free acoustic concerts at the following locations:
* Saturday, 9/11: Cherry Hill, NJ – Macy’s Cherry Hill

Now I haven't seen GC live since '05 but I know that they are amazing live and I would LOVE to go to an intimate acoustic set so I highly recommend heading along for the music alone. They will be premiering some of the new tunes from Cardiology which so far sounds amazing! Check out the 2 previews we've received from the boys so far =)
Also, just a small note to say I've added a Bloglovin feature in the right-hand sidebar, not sure how successful this will be but time will tell =)
And a big hello and THANK YOU to all who follow me! <3
