summer shopaholic !

There is something about the hot summer weather that brings out the shopaholic in me! I thrive off of finding that perfect vintage piece, that handmade one of a kind item, that rare find to add to my collection!!! This week I racked up some pretty cool pieces from all over town. The Goodwill is definitely my go to store when I am on the hunt for something original. On my last haul I managed to get 6 dresses, a long red jacket, and a pink tie-dyeish blazer for under $100. Beat that! I am obsessed with turquoise stones, white lace, aztec anything, fringe and tassels... and that is exactly what I found while out on the prowl. Here are some pics of my life over the last week on instagram! Summer bling, cute hats, arm candy, new aztec ring, free people sidewalk sale, and celebrating in my new vintage dress! Hope you enjoy my pics, and please feel free to check me out on instagram @danaleecalabrese for daily photo blogs! xxx

wild - - fox

My sister collects rosary beads so when I saw these broken heart friendship necklaces by Wildfox I knew I had to buy them! One for me, one for you!!! My sister Jen has two small children so we figured I would get the wild half... I guess I am a tad bit wilder and she sure is a fox! It's the perfect gift to give someone you love, especially when you live so far away... the broken heart becomes whole again when we are together. They are sold together for around $80. Love it? You can buy it at WILDFOX  , or give eBay a shot! Happy Hunting! xxx

teddy girl style

My character for the music video "Mouthful of Me" was highly inspired by the 1950's Teddy Boy look. Fitted suits, rolled up jeans, oxford flats, black ribbon tie... aaahhhh soooo lovely!!! It's funny how this is considered to be a boy look, but I felt super sexy and feminine rocking this style. I guess I was never the pink and frills kinda gal! But hey with the right leather jacket pink frills looks amazing! {we will save that for another post} I got my button down and skinny black pants at H&M, stole my man's hat & tie, bought some black suede shoes and stuck a cig in my mouth.... this look is so simple to recreate and you probably already have all of the pieces laying around your house!!! I'm thinking the next time you head out on the town you should really stray away from the norm, wow your friends and show them your Teddy Girl Style!!!!  Ps. the top right photo is me, and be sure to click on the link to check me out as "Frankie" in the music video! xxx

mouthful of me : press release

"MOUTHFUL OF ME" to be first single off hit songwriter Annet Artani's new album
: New York, June 21, 2012

Annet Artani's new single, "Mouthful of Me" is only a metaphor! We've all looked over at someone and thought they were just delicious. In this song, dreamed up by the writing team of Artani and guitarist Eric Nicolas, Annet is the one on the menu.

When Annet first performed "Mouthful of Me" to a packed house at NYC's famed Bitter End, the crowd went mad. The song, a dark pop tango, became the obvious first single, and its creepy, oral-erotic theme generated the idea for the video.

Facebook is responsible for connecting Annet and her dark video auteur Torgeir Ensrud, a Norwegian director and visual effects specialist, who invited her out to shoot the video at Joshua Tree National Park. Ensrud and his wife, Dana Lee Calabrese Ensrud, work as a creative team, and Dana also plays Annet's love interest in the video. Annet's sister, Artemis, was the hair and makeup artist for both girls. The casting of a woman as the love interest was no accident either: Annet is an advocate for gay rights, marching in last year's gay pride parade in a wedding dress, as well as a proud resident of NY State, where two people of the same sex can now legally eat white cake off each other's plates.
"Mouthful of Me" follows the 2009 single "Alive," which Annet released on Ultra Records. Critics have recently compared Annet to the late, great Amy Winehouse, as well as to Joss Stone and Gwen Stefani. But as “Mouthful” makes evident, she is very much her own artist. Annet is probably best known internationally for writing the platinum hit ballad "Everytime" with Britney Spears, featured on three separate albums, as well as for being a Greek pop star, thanks to her star turn on the hit show "Fame Story" and her representation of Cyprus in the Eurovision Song Contest with "Why Angels Cry.”

She currently resides in New York City and is recording the rest of this album in Harlem with producer-engineer Zak Soulam and her writing partner, Eric Nicolas.
