gothica




(black feather lashes, vintage mesh dress, aa tube bra, vintage escada skirt)

a couple weeks ago i had a photoshoot with genevive for her portfolio . she did my makeup and hair. ive never had dramatic makeup like this, so it was definitely a new experience. she glued black feather on the ends of false lashes and applied them to my lashes. i really love how they turned out. thanks genevive!

past in present



(vintage gunne sax dress, h&m sandals and vest, nastygal spike cuff, UO fringe bag)

im finally wearing my vintage gunne sax dress i bought a while back. in the summer i tend to pair everything with hippieish accessories. it just sort of fits the weather i guess. im having technical difficulties with my laptop at home. so im really behind on replying to comments and answering emails. sorry! ill try my best to catch up within the next week or so.

im sure by now everyone knows about michael jackson and farrah fawcett's death. they have both made such a great impact on my childhood memories. my heart goes out to their family and friends.

make up, not war








(trash and luxury tee, vintage halter bra, members only leggings, F21 necklace, UO fringe bag, marni platform)

im wearing one of my favorite tees of all time. oversized tees are my weakness. i know everyone has these marni platforms, but i still couldn't resist getting them even though they are a half size too small. ive lusted these for such a long time, i think i can bare the pain. hahah vanity at its finest. i know. it sucks. :(

[ps im sorry about the delay on the contest winner, i promise i promise i will post the winner tomorrow!]

sunday adventures

i recieved a text from olivia early sunday morning informing me about the space 1520 blogger sale in hollywood. i got dressed and dragged roxie with me to do a little shopping. we got quite a few good pieces made by fellow bloggers and a few thrift pieces as well. we also roamed into urban outfitters next door. there were actually a few inspiration pieces at UO worth posting about. we will probably do a diy of some of the things we saw. after that, we strolled through the farmer's market where we saw a nice array of indian inspired jewelry and dreamcatchers. it was a good sunday.

roxie




i was really digging this girl's shoes










this shirt was horribly overpriced at UO, i bought a similar version at the sale for $12.






finished the day off with the most delicious $11 lunch i ever had.
