Being a designer I am a huge fashion lover and mass clothing hoarder. I live to collect clothing. Fashion is the armor the take on ever day life. It gives us the confidence to do extraordinary things. When I look good I feel good. Expressing your identity without saying a word is bold and powerful. What does your fashion say about you. Are funny and flirty. Free spirited ? Do you love music do your rock out hard. Are you a hippie at heart? All these things can be said about you by just what you choose to put on in the morning before venturing out to you days activity's. It can also express our every mood. Unfortunately our clothing can be the first impression that one has of us. Although I do not agree with it it is how the majority of peoples minds work. What first impression are we giving and do we even really care as long as its not a first date meeting of the parents or a job interview who the hell cares what that first impression.

"We've got a team in our warehouse comprised of a bunch of misfits who are still punk rock "kids" at heart. We all work as a family and contribute in our own idiosyncratic ways to make Lip Service® a super unique brand for individuals and independent thinkers! We take pride in doing everything ourselves, from the designs to the photo shoots, the marketing to the website, and we never forget our influences of raucous music and a hardcore attitude! We're selling to boutiques all around the globe so that we can influence others with our unique, one-of-a-kind styles no matter where they are or where they shop! Oh, and even though our styles nowadays run the gamut from the vinyl and strapped down Fetish Classics' to the soft and worn in Blacklist', it's still signature Lip Service® and always will be!"
They are working on getting a website up currently. One of the better known punk brands out there. They can go to the extreme trashy side of punk but also have the cult basics and classic with a bad ass edge. Personal the main thing I shop from them for is their jackets. They are seriously unrivaled. Even my husband was jealous of my buys from them. They also have some fucking killer Post Apocalyptic clothing. If you are doing any festival type stuff and have a fairly broad budget you will want to take a peek. Since they do not yet have a website there are various online spots to buy. I bought both my jackets on eBay and will be buying my third this week. Here are the 3 amazing jackets I have. I now it summer but I could not pass up these bad boys. This is heat stroke worthy fashion at its best.

One Teaspoon Clothing Brand
I have nothing but, Love love and more love for this clothing brand. JAMIE BLAKEY, The FOUNDER/CREATIVE DIRECTOR of One Teaspoon seems to be one heck of a gal. Staying true to her and her brands identity and consistently turning out kick ass awesome laid back rocker fashion. She knows her customer she who they are and what they want. From Fergie to Beyonce' wearing her designs she has built a fashion empire. A women after my own heart this is how she describes her brand-" Our collections are damn big and diverse. I guess industry folk would call it "high-end street" or “contemporary” but I don’t like to pigeonhole what we do because I feel we offer something for everyone. The best description of the label I could provide actually came to me in a letter from a fan of the brand that said One Teaspoon was “FANTASTICALLY REBELLIOUS, SEX-INFUSED OLD SCHOOL ROCK & ROLL GLAMOUR”. Ha! I like that.- Jamie Blakey
