Trick or Treat?!

 

Halloween 2011 was a total blast!  It was way better than 2010 (considering I didn’t anything) and much calmer than 2009 (where one of our friends ended up the EMS… at least I got to ride shoot gun for that).  Here is just a glismpe of my night in pictures.  Johanna and her friend from school went as Black and White Swan.  Her friend (Black Swan) had her tutu flown in from Italy.  Johanna (White Swan) handmade hers.  Didn’t she do a great job?  The last picture is my favorite one.  My girl found Waldo!  Who knew he would be at a pub in Dallas getting his drink on?!

I hope everyone had a blast this year!

Happy Halloween My Pretties!

Happy Halloween 2011! How was EVERYONE’s Halloween weekend?! Mine was fantastic! It was a complete 180 from last year.  The previous year I did absolutely nothing. This year one of Johanna’s classmate’s parents decided to host a Halloween party! It was spectacular! I dressed up as the Captain of the Mile High Club. However, when anyone asked who I was… I just said pilot. It was a family event. I will have pictures up either later today or tomorrow.

The day before Swetha, Tamica, and myself attended an Asian Arts festival. It was pretty cool. Pictures to come. By the suggestion of Swetha I got my first Henna Tatto. I had it done on the palm of my hand so the design would show up better. It’s cool because hardly anyone sees it. It’s the closest thing I will have for a real tattoo.

This weekend I also learned that my new nephew will be here on December 21, 2011! I am so excited to meet him. His name will be Jaxon.

Tell me about your weekend!

What are you going to be for Halloween?

Me? Well, I’m the Captain of the Mile High Club of course. LOL. I only picked this outfit cuz it was the best of them all. Plus I have a great bomber jacket and some cute aviator sunglasses I picked up for $2 at Payless. In all… including tax… my outfit cost $45. I honestly think I spent too much money. Oh well now.

What are you guys going to be for Halloween?

Thrifting Marc Jacobs

Last Friday Johanna and I decided to hunt down thrift stores to purchase cheap finds for her homemade White Swan inspired Halloween Costume (which is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G BTW).  We ended up going to a thrift store not too far from my job.  Click here if you want to know the whole story (one of my best post written on the blog).  I don’t want to rehash the whole thing.

I wanted to highlight the two scarves I purchased.  The knit lambskin one is Marc Jacobs.  I’m not sure who the designer is of the second scarf, but I love them both.  Together I purchased the scarves for $4.53… and YES that does include the tax!

Have you guys had any AMAZING finds thrifting lately?

Keepin’ It Country

From the moment Johanna landed in the Lone Star State she has been DYING to get her hands on authentic American Cowboy boots.  Her wish was finally granted.  Johanna went to Wild Bills Western and $200 later walked out with some gorgeous boots! I have been trying to highlight these boots FOREVER, but just FINALLY got around to it.

The main reason i’m showcasing them now is because Johanna wanted to do a Western shoot with a cowboy hat and some western boots.  We found the hat last weekend and did the shoot this past Sunday at the Running of the Bulls statue in Dallas.  I will TRY and post the pictures tomorrow because I want to post the YouTube video up of her Cowboy Cowgirl Outfit of the day.  The boots are just a taste of heaven.

If you guys are in Dallas and want to purchase boots from a knowledgable seller (I mean this guy almost knew the name of the cow the leather came from) then go to Wild Bills Western located in the West End.

Johanna LOVES the smell of new leather! LOL

All I do is Win!

 

So yesterday I had two great surprises! First, I got to see one of my closest friend’s daughter, and (2) I received a prize from InPink! So I let my lil homie open up the package for me. I love how she’s NOT camera shy!

In the box I won this great flower necklace! Wow! I want to thank In Pink for sending me such a fantastic prize! What’s even better?… With all the different colors on the necklace I was about to practice the colors with the lil munchkin!

Thank You In Pink for the prize and the memories!

The top 10 this week brought to by the letters C-U-T-E

Today I took the day off because one of the shots to my gums hurt so bad it was giving me a headache last night. This morning I actually woke up refreshed, but that’s because I went to bed at 9PM. Anyways… here are my top 10 choices of the week in blogger fashion. Remember… they aren’t in any special order of whom I like the most… I love all of them equally.

Track 01: Wendy

I love the jacket over the sweater look. The different textures and different shades of brown really work well for this military sergeant inspired look. As per usual, Ms. Wendy is on top of her shoe game.

Via 

Track 02: Atlantic Pacific

There is nothing g more than I like than the classic Americana look. AP does it right in these photos. The denim on denim remake that was brought back has officially been classified as cool. Again, another blogger sporting another chocolate jacket. I’m loving the enlye of plaid. The aviator glasses add a nice classic touch.

Via

Track 03: Jessica

Jessica either brings it or doesn’t. Her fashion taste is not consistant. However, in this look it is. I normally would not add a change of wardrobe suggestion with my top10, but in this case I will. Jessica, please loose the sunglasses. You have such a beautiful face and the shades don’t compliment this look in any possible way. Jessica has a knack for picking great pieces. In this case, the seafoam vintage jacket.

Via

Track 04: Victoria

This stylista went straight 80’s glam here! The solid magenta top and sequin gold skirt is such a fun look. She did a magnificent job making a typically nighttime look work for the day. Check out the piece of hardware around her necklace.

Via 

Track 05: The Satorialist

I don’t like Maxi dresses, but this one looks so fine and divine. I love the simple sandles. She is a picture of perfection.

Via

Track 06: Cylia

What’s not to love about an off the shoulder sweater. This looks is totally grunge glamour done right. I would rock this look at an outside concert during the twilight hours.

Via

Track 07: Jenny

If you don’t know… now you know… I’m a jacket girl. Nothing is cooler than a jean jacket. Jenn does a great job pairing a classic blue jean jacket with a cute floral dress, black tights and a new twist on Doc Martens. This is grunge done cute.

Via 

Track 08: Kileen

If I were to put finds in order this one wold have been first. As I visit Cute and Little more and more her fashion choices are becoming more on point everyday. Now if I were to choose a look that I would ear verbatim… this would be it. Down to the last detail. I mean, I love the mix of the olive green with the dark pink and then to sexy it up she rocks the leapord heels?! Kudos to Kileen!

Via 

Track 09: Diya

I freakin’ love this look! Look at that oversized clutch. I am a clutch girl to the end!

Via

Track 10: Mimi Xu

She interviewed for Tales of Endearment and I love the fact she’s an Asian female DJ living in Paris. How much fuckin’ cooler can that be?! Not to mention that fly dress! This leopard print sequin vintage dress was her first vintage purchase.

Beauty from Pain

Fuck the dentist!  That man put FIVE.  YES FIVE needles in my dayum mouth!!!!!  I look like TWO FACE!  Johanna is over here making fun of me!  One half of my face it so frozen.  It’s so bad even my eyelashes are numb.  She said it’s so weird watching me speak because only one half of my  mouth moves.  She also noted that half of my face appears swollen.  She’s enjoying making fun of me because I played three pranks on her this week.

I’m going to keep it real.  I hadn’t seen the dentist in a VERRRRRRRY long time because I didn’t have medical insurance.  That’s because since 2008 I have either been layed off or a contract employee that received NO medical benefits.  My ass was not getting Cobra because the mess was too expensive.

So here I am.  Years later.  laying on that moveable chair thing.  In a snow white room.  Underneath that bright florescent light.  All I hear are drills, clinking, a machine sucking out all my saliva, and the dentist speaking to his hygienist in number code.  My left side of my face is so numb that I can’t feel a thing.

The worst thing about this?… I have to do this WHOLE thing over again next month on the other side of the mouth.  Why?  Because the dentist used the state maximum amount of anesthesia on my face.  

The best thing about this?  I got out of work today and my teeth look fantastic!

Keepin’ It Real

Wow! So the realist thing in a long time was told to me today. “I showed *remove name* your resume. He told me he liked it. I mean he wasn’t impressed by anything you done, but liked how you stated what you can do.”

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW! I understand that was supposed to be a compliment, but it was kinda… just wow. I have been having a hard time finding a job and I believe my resume is the true issue. In reality the resume is the only thing that speaks to people when you can’t. When I get into interviews I nail them. People are often telling me, “Wow, you’re resume doesn’t say this about you!” If I could afford a super fancy resume writer I would. Then again… you have to spend money to make money, right? After I recuperated from the shock I thought about what was said, and I realized it’s true. I love honestly. It may sting at first sometimes, but it’s really needed. It’s one thing for me to think it, but it’s another thing for someone to be honest and confirm my thoughts. I appreciated it.

I would apologize about last week for being M.I.A, but I have a life too guys! So much went on that prevented me for uploading ANY content. I really hated seeing that. I will continue to try and post at least once a day every day.

I had a pretty cool weekend and I’ll most likely update you guys on it Tuesday or Wednesday. How was your weekend?

The song featured above is my theme song of the week. It’s from the Watch the Throne album. It’s the number nine track and it’s called Who Gon’ Stop Me.

It’s the first song in a long time that I can sit still, close my eyes, and get lost too.

The beat is BEYOND dope. I mean, the beat is dope as hell! When I hear this song I feel like I’m listening to the evolution of Hip Hop. Now, if this song doesn’t help motivate your ass to get out of bed and do something… I don’t know what will.

Thank Me Later Lovlies!
