Drifting through Tennessee commonly known as Music City, artists are made and broken. Tennessee is not an era it’s a state of mind. Taking inspiration from icons of all generations who have cut their teeth here.
http://I am a 60s rock n roll inspired fashion blogger from Chicago, IL. I am a vintage stylist, as well as model, and bass player in The Knee Hi’s. Above all that, though, I’m just a chick with a need of freedom and lust for life.
So we figured there was no better place to shoot our Autumn 2020 range than at the recently renovated Dive Motel in Nashville, where all our 70’S dreams came true!
The nostalgic charm of the original Motel (built in 1956), overall aesthetic and styling details of this Motel really transports you to another time. With each room themed differently, you can expect anything from 70’s inspired wall paper to shag rugs and bedding, pink bathrooms and disco balls activated by a “party” switch in every room to get the party started.
It’s a place where you can check in and don’t need to leave - the dive bar serves a mean G&T and the resident DJ will get you going until you stumble into the courtyard for a quick bite from the food truck parked on site. The next morning roll straight from your room into the Swim Club, where you can lay poolside with a Bloody Mary & wash away any bad decisions from the night before.

Geowulf, originally formed in Australia’s coastal town Noosa, the Dream pop duo Star Kendrick and Toma Banjanin have a charming melodic sound that have found them a fan base in both Australia and Europe, which is where they currently reside.
Our time in Phoenix felt like a whirlwind. We met up with new friends (Riley, Tripp and Vivian), re-stocked the cars, and took the opportunity to give the Airbnb washing machine a little work out in an attempt to start the next part of the journey slightly less dusty. To set the scene, the average daily temperature was still in the mid to high 30s. We thought we would’ve acclimatised by now but it wasn’t the case! The pure dry, desert heat didn’t even drop in the late afternoons, it was brutal!
Calling back to the psychedelic world of the late 60’s and early 70’s, we partnered up with local artist Nick Potts who looked to present day topical issues for his source of inspiration in this capsule tee collection.
