Flashback Friday

panda girls

I was going to put different pictures up, but when I logged into my Flickr and saw these from 2008… well, it was a game changer. The original post is pushed to Sunday. Can we talk about these for a second?! I was a baby! WE were babies! Not really, but it feels like it. The ones of me posing were for Keiko’s clothing line, Postlapsaria. One of my favorite things to do when visiting was to model her clothes. And they were always the first to sell, right Keiks? Hahaha. I love the fake, clip-in hair color because my job wasn’t into abnormal colors. My how times have changed!

Hot Mess

One of my best friends, Keiko, featured me on her blog for her Makeup Monday post this week. Click here to check out what’s in my makeup bag (a slightly toned down version, though it doesn’t appear that way) and a glimpse of what goes through my head when I do my makeup. I have another outfit post for you guys as well but I probably won’t get it up until tomorrow. I’m going to go play with my friend’s four day old baby girl now. She’s ridiculously cute and tiny.

Children, Wake Up..

If this ever posts, it’ll be a miracle. My internet…. well, my neighbor’s internet (shh)… has been in and out all day. These are the last pictures from the Nashville trip. Ya know, from back in November. Haha. Ughh. I just got them from Keiko. But I have all my China pictures to go through and put up, so I figured it’s better than nothing. There are so many things I need to get done and I just get overwhelmed and shut down. I have to make a huge effort to not let my lists and errands drown me. I read somewhere that you need to pick 5 things from a list and work on just those in one day. I was told the other day to just work on the two major ones. I wish it was that simple. I need to set up a work space in my room for working on the necklaces and headbands. I found a desk on Craigslist that I wanted. It needs paint and new knobs but the DIY wheels started rolling and my little heart got set on it. The woman said she has another potential buyer and that she’d let me know. So annoying. Just sell me the desk. 

I’m going to attempt to pull myself away from the internet and get to Target. It’s just so hard with videos like this circulating. Pretty sure I’d react this way to several different animals. Holy awesome. 

Enjoy!

Forget me not, my love…

I love holidays and want them to be perfect and stress free. Unfortunately, things don’t always turn out how I’d like them to. Thanksgiving was one thing after another and I eventually just gave up and went to bed. Best decision. Just start over the next day.

I will say one thing though… I am beyond blessed and thankful for the people in my life. I have amazing parents and some incredible friends. I am constantly amazed by the amount of love and support that surrounds me and I don’t take any of it for granted.

On that note, I’m so happy that Keiko and I were able to take our Nashville trip (more photos on Claudia’s blog). I had the best time and everyone was so nice. Gotta love southern hospitality… and the biscuits. Can’t forget the biscuits… and fried green tomatoes… donuts… meat and threes… mac and cheese… Jeni’s ice cream…. the chicken sandwich at Silly Goose… dammit, now I’m hungry.

These pictures were taken in Claudia and Mark’s beautiful home while we were in Nashville. I fell in love with this particular room and took a few mental notes and actual pictures for my own home redecorating project (which seems never ending). Presley, the beautiful pup in the pictures, was the best welcomer ever. She gave lots of face kisses… the best were when I was falling asleep on the couch the first night and she sneak attacked me. What a little love!

Keiko and I adored Nashville and started looking up house listings online. It’s hard coming from places like New York and Los Angeles, with our smaller apartments and larger monthly payments, and seeing what you can get for your money elsewhere. They had a front AND back yard! I wished I was in jeans and my Toms so that I could just run around with Presley all day. We’ll definitely be back to visit and who knows… maybe even have a house there one day. Yard included.

Lighten Up - It’s Just Fashion!

This will be my one big overview of last month’s shows, presentations, and events for New York Fashion Week. I’ll try to condense it as much as possible, since its all in one post. I was running around a lot so I didn’t always remember to take pictures but hopefully this will give a bit of a look into my NYFW. I’ll post my backstage beauty coverage of the Rachel Roy show tomorrow. 

I was able to attend Porter Grey’s show with my friend, Kim. You might remember these photos from that day. I really liked a lot of the pieces. The two sequined items were obvious favorites of mine, along with some other shorts and skirts that just had really great cuts. The line featured some very bold solid colors as well as a bunch of beautiful prints. And although I usually enjoy a good gaudiness to my clothing, I loved that the line was ready to wear and classic (with a twist!).  

Keiko and I attended a 10th Anniversary party for Arrojo Salon where Nick Arrojo actually got on the turntables and DJ’d for a bit. 

I completely failed at Fashion’s Night Out this year. I had major plans with Holly of hitting up 3 events and only made it to two. Trying to run around the city to different areas in a 4 hour time frame just isn’t easy/possible. We did go to Coach first but the caterers were useless (the guy wouldn’t bring the trays of food near us… jerk!) so we left to go show our support for Keiko. She hosted a party at Elie Tahari. We met up with Bobby and a ton of our other blogger buddies and I ate massive amounts of mini cupcakes. Yum!

Below is the Rebecca Minkoff show that I was fortunate enough to attend. I had major hair envy. I need to start teasing the crap out of my hair. The line was very pretty and I loved the flowy pieces. I admired Rebecca’s ability to be more than 8 months pregnant and attend her runway show AND after party, all in one day.  

Before I get to these last few photos, I’d like to tell you what happened right before them. I got in an elevator to go up to the Amanda Pearl presentation (see next three photos) and a bunch of models on their way to the Walter presentation crammed in so that they didn’t have to wait for the next elevator. They’re skinny… no problem right? WRONG. The elevator went down to the basement and got stuck. We kept pressing the button but no one responded. A few minutes later, the elevator door opened and we got out into a room with no doors or access to stairs. We basically had to wait for other elevators to end up down there and send a few people up at a time. I was down in the basement for about 15 minutes before I finally got back up. I’d like to say I didn’t panic in the elevator but I was totally freaking out, thinking “these tall bitches are stealing all my air” and contemplated putting my heels back on. 

So when I eventually made it up to the Amanda Pearl presentation, I was a little flustered. They handed me a glass of wine and I got to look around at all the pretty bags and jewelry. A few of the stand out pieces for me were the big blue stone necklace and the laser cut bag (tote shown but there was a clutch, too). Isn’t Amanda adorable? We had a whole conversation about how she wants to dye her hair teal. 

These are some of the models from the Walter presentation and the two on the right were stuck in the elevator with me.

All in all, I had a great time running around to the different events. It was fantastic seeing Keiko, Bobby, and all my animal loves from when I was living in New York. I had decided whether or not to go very last minute and didn’t regret it at all. I’ve sort of learned over the years that you regret the things you don’t do, more than the things you do. And besides… money is made to be spent. And boy, do I like to spend it. I have a trip a month planned until January. Better get working.
