Rebecca & Fiona

Rebecca and Fiona True Life: I want to be a DJ. But not just any old DJ-- I want to be Rebecca and Fiona. Cute clothes featuring loads of crop tops and platform shoes, to-die for hair anywhere from bright pink and blazing turquoise to best kinds of blonde, and amazing voices and dance moves that combined make for the best songs that you can't help but ridiculously dance to-- these girls are the epitome of girl power and house music. You may recognize them from hit tunes like "Bullets" or from their collabo with Kaskade (for what is one of my fave songs), "Turn It Down" (below). But whatever it may be, this Swedish duo knows how to use everything from vocals to choreography to fashion to instantly reel and lure in the crowds. While the DJ world is mostly taken over with male power like everyone from Avicii to Tiesto to David Guetta, these to girls know how to cut through the noise and make a name and presence for themselves. I got to catch up with the stylish pair a few weeks back when they made a quick pit-stop in LA to perform at Create Nightclub-- and let me tell you, that show was probably one of the best I've seen in a while!

Fashionlaine: How did you guys meet and decide to enter the DJing world? Rebecca & Fiona: We met at a party and shared a big interest in dance music; we wanted to start a club in Stockholm together.

FL:Where do you get inspiration from for your songs and music? R&F: We have most of the inspiration inside of us, but we love beer-- that's a great inspiration as well.

FL: Who do you look to as musical inspirations? R&F: We like Oliver, The Soft Moon, Saint Etienne, and Carli.

FL: What has been one of your favorite places you've played and why? R&F: We always love to play festivals, everywhere! Because the spirit is nice and people are in a good mood and can discover new music.

FL: On top of being a power DJ duo, you guys are super stylish as well. How would you describe each of your styles? R&F: We have the same style-- cheap and comfortable. We love second-hand shopping!

FL: What is your favorite thing in your closets right now that you can't live without? R&F: Our platform shoes!

FL: What's been the best/memorable experience thus far? R&F: We've had too many so we can't choose a single event really!

FL: What upcoming and exciting plans do you have in store that your fans can look forward to? R&F: We're getting the last pieces done for our second album, that will be released in March 2014. We're so excited about that and really look forward to playing songs from there!!

Florals in Fall

Florals in Fall How does that old saying? You can take the seasons out of florals, but you can't take the florals out of seasons? Ok fine, I just made that up, but it's a pretty good saying that should be used more often. Either way, that's a saying that I've come to see that I use no matter what season we're in. Over the summer I was a floral headband loving machine, so I was a little sad to acknowledge the pink elephant in my headband drawer'd room where I was going to have to accept the day that would come where I wouldn't be able to wear a floral halo on my head in the fall and winter seasons. But atlas! The day has come. It's fall. And the floral headbands are still popping up in my ensembles. You see my friends, as my fave saying goes (...coined by myself again), "be what you want, wear what you want". And even though I was a little frightened to exit my house wearing today's floral headband wondering what others would think, I just followed my own saying and went for it. It's all about how you pair the entire look together which makes all the difference; so tying today's floral headband together with a turtle neck (crop top of course), cardigan, and the perfect shade of a long purple skirt-- you too see how easy it can be to wear florals in the fall.
