YUM YUM YUM!!!!




UGH. I can't take it lately. This is NYC label Sophomore. Grossly good. And I'm sorry, but seriously this model is ultra cute in the weirdest way. Maybe its that one of her eyes is just a but smaller or lazier than the other. My last boyfriend had that and I thought it was adorable on him too.

File Under: Seven Deadly Sins; Lust



Oh, covet covet covet. I'm dying here! I've been (and still am, of course) SO SO ill for the last two weeks. Ugh. Gross. Can't freaking handle it. I'm wrecked. And, of course, it's the beginning of finals at my school (art school) so I'm completely screwed. S-C-R-E-W-E-D!!!! Plus, I of course have some totally bogus "group" project and neither of the people doing it with me haven't gotten hold of anything. So, guess I have to do: a, a blog for a client (though it's almost done), two record covers for the label I work for (Smogveil), a portfolio website for my Intro to Scripting Languages class, an animation (!!!!) that's supposed to be a "group" project, (due tomorrow, by the way), and oh, I don't know, try to leave the bathroom floor? That'd be fabulous. So, in the meantime, I have nothing but time to lust after clothes. I am ridiculous. But really-some if this shit is so right it's not right. I'm obsessed (as some of you already know) with AllSaints, Bassike (an unreal Australian label, I mean, what do these people do? Rock N Roll, clothes, good God!!!), Sass & Bide....ugh. It's killing me. I need to make more money. And spend less on tuition. Come on, financial aid!!! Hook a sistah up!!!! Mama needs some new threads! Check this shit:

Seasons Changing and We're Loving The New Kicks!

So, remember those jellies we used to wear when we were little girls (did they even make them for boys? That's not very fair, is it?) that used to eat down to the bone on the side of your foot? I had them in clear lavender, clear pink (hot, of course) and clear sea foam green. Yes, it was some years ago and the color sea foam green was all the freaking rage. Don't ask me. But if you find a photo of me with my massive bunchy socks pulled up over my awesome acid washed black pegged jeans you win a prize. Anyway, Givenchy has apparently decided to disperse something to the little people or something, because these ridiculously adorable JELLY lace up sandals are only 170.00!!!! I can't believe it. I need these in my life. I'm just hoping that they don't cause my feet to bleed like the ones I used to have.

Oh, Alexander McQueen...and vintage fur, the only kind we'll wear...




Seriously. So, I have been waiting for the Target Alexander McQueen jump, and boy was it worth it. More photos to come. Grossly good. Really. And here's a vintage silver fox fur. Soon up for sale in the store.

Porcelain Dandelion


it’s a long walk

for a flat

footed

dandelion,

green leaves expressing spear tips.

Sticky, fresh smell,

Leaks onto our thighs and cools quick and dirty.

Tangled mass of venetian blinds

Scream, clattering into the night.

You said it’s a lack if sensitivity, or manners,

Cigarette burning on the countertop at the edge of the porcelain sink.

Drip silently

Pouring

Poured

Into a cap declaring fortune

Cookie fables of defeat.

Cotton swab ends

Scatter

On man’s breath,

Fly out-

Flatfoot!

Dandelion of the yellow cheeks

Streak the tiles

With blood in your elegant injection’s

Embrace.

Radio Silence Must Cease!



Yeah, I've been MIA lately. Totally swamped with classes, work, life, health, etc... Mostly the health part, actually, but c'est la vie! I've found some real gems in the vintage cat lately, and hope to be posting some soon for sale in the store. Please check them out and look for the records to be slowly but surely added as well. In other news, I have discovered the face of God in my bathtub. His name is Lush. Holy Cow!!!! Has anyone used this stuff?????? It's amazingly fantastic. I bought the Rock Star soap , the Sonic Death Monkey bath gel, the Ma Bar bubble bar, the Geo Fizz bath bomb, and the Too Drunk To F*ck bath emotibomb. Yes, that's really the name of it, which is all the more reason for a girl like me to shop there. Last night I took a bath, as it was snowing like crazy outside and my body aches like you wouldn't believe, with the Geo Fizz bath bomb and the Rock Star soap. I have to vouch for these bad boys-they work. Really, really well. I have been craving another bath all morning, and honestly may just make myself a cup of tea and hop in to some hot scented water when I get home. Sigh. If only that were now, and if only someone would pay me to take more baths. That appealing hot pink slab is the Rock Star soap, which I used to shave my legs (AH-mazing!) and smells like bubble gum. Yay! 

In other depression curing purchases, I wandered foolishly into the Sephora at Crabtree in Raleigh, after an admittedly failed attempt to get help at MAC. (it wasn't their fault, they were super slammed, but I really wanted the Hello Kitty collection! ) I fell in love with Nars years ago upon my first excursion into a Sephora, in Las Vegas. I seriously had the same eye shadow for five or six years before it needed to be replaced. Can't beat it. Especially since a duo shadow costs 32.00, which for me is a bit steep but entirely worth it. I FINALLY found the right foundation for me!!! This may not seem exciting to you, but let me tell you, I'm pretty ecstatic. It's the Fiji balanced formula, and we'll see how it works out. To tide you over, here's some photos from my very, very rushed trip to San Francisco. I'll be back soon, I promise. A great big thanks and I love you to Kate Morrow, Store Manager of the Haight Street Buffalo Exchange, for being her effervescent amazing self, and totally rockin' it out on the merch front. Expect a new expanded post tonight or tomorrow on the super cute vintage I picked up while in Cali.
