Kool Kat--"Milly Style"

David stopped by OCT today to check out our vintage vinyl.  He is always on the lookout for 70's Jazz and he found a great LP today that was definitely on his must have list--The Genius of Eddie Harris.  Eddie was an American Jazz Musician from Chicago who was best known on the Sax.
Listen and Learn here eddieharris.com--and turn the volume way up!

David had that effortless cool--old school look--we love the retro hat.  It's his "good vibe" hat--a gift from his best friend.  And what about his authentic leather Coach messenger bag--a hand me down from his dad!  This one is vintage, but you can score your own here coach.com.  This was one Kool Kat--and we're glad he stopped by!

"Album Cover of the Week"

Get the Party Started with Kool and the Gang.  These New Jersey guys got together back in High School in 1964 and their smooth jazz-R&B-funk style is still going strong today.  They have sold over 79 million albums worldwide and with hits like Ladies Night (1979) Celebration and Get Down On It (1980's)--we can see why.  Get your funk on with Kool and the Gang here koolandthegang.com and be sure and turn up the sound!

It's all about the Funk--"Milly Style"

Can't get enough of that funky stuff?  Check out Whitney and her "Milly Style"  she came by to do some modeling for us at OCT but check out her own style!  The jacket was a thrift store find and it looks great with the green and dark blue T's.
The hat was a previous purchase from--you guessed it-- Booth #4.  She finished it off with some really funky earrings and jewelry--we are lovin the total look--definitely "Milly Style"
