i love the mayje floral print action going on. like this.

it's just new enough to still be cool. but i almost feel like the look is getting too saturated, no longer someone/ anyone's signature look.

i hope it never gets overdone.

you guys.

simone rocha just burst onto the scene with her first runway show and i'm already obsessed. i know, i'm obsessed with a lot of things.

but really. this is kind of a serious obsession.

i'm not feeling so romantic in my pj ensemble. that i've absolutely refused to get out of today to the dismay of my husbies.

it's 3:30pm.

at some point, i will have to get up off this couch and start at least one of the 34 errands i had planned to do this weekend.


but then when you're blog surfing and come across something like this, how do you stop and drop it like its hot.


i'm such a sucker for free stuff.

yes, let me spend $500 on shoes so i can get 3 bottles of fancy pants custom nail polish.

please. let. me.


ok. blah blah blah. their fall 2012 rtw collection is for all women who want to say 'don't f with me i will cut a bitch' without actually having to say it. strong and masculine with no frills or apologies.

but whatevers about looking at clothes i can't afford. instead, i saw this and i was like. i can spare 165 bones (i can't, really, but it's more in line with the type of budget i have).

worth it. right?

my husband, still in love with me i guess, dropped a wrapped bag of snickers minis into my purse this morning.

i'm obsessed with snickers. i have a (kind of strong) thing for this caramel nougety peanut chocolate treat.

i love love sometimes.

that's what i'd call my outfit today.

i blame it on the chinese food i had last night (so good). woke up feeling extra bloated and gross.

i was aiming for printy but then added too much print and now i look... clowny. oops.

anyways, i'm totally going cray over this. via a cup of jo.

i'm not a huge fan of clutter but for some reason, i have a lot of stuff in my bag. switched it up today from a torn up longchamp to my priced payce from paris.

i swear, if you say 'goyard' fast five times, it'll sound like 'i love you'.

made that up.

so when someone's a bitch to you, do you throw the bitch back? i do. so basically, it'll be a battle of bitches because i can't stand the bitch today.

on a separate note, i have three little (and by little, i mean like LITTLE) loose diamonds gifted from an ex that i've kept with my button stash for the past 7 or 8 years. which reminds me, i should look for them and make sure they still exist.

in any case, i've been wanting to get them made into something wearable.

and i think i might do it at this little shop in venice.

massive throbbing of the head. like massive.

but here i am, on the comp, scrolling through the milliones of fashion blogs out there and getting overwhelmed and inspired at the same time.

most important question for me at the moment: what the hell does she do for a living. i really need to know.


two timeless rules in fashion. if there is such a thing.

first. you can never be wrong with an arsenal of texture.

this is an outfit i wore a few weeks ago with animal print, lace, lurex silk, cashmere, and leather (shoes). a lot going on, but muted in color so not as look-at-me-look-at-me. (i'm shy.)

and second. red party lips, means party. and let's be honest. partying never goes out of style. (not as shy when i'm partying.)

the hubs has goneth on a weekend trip to hang out with buds for the superbowl. bye bye.

got my nails did (essie: bahama mama).

got my teeth cleaned. picked up clothes at a tailor. went to another tailor to get a sweater hemmed (this is apparently muy dificil).

got some goodies at lemonade.

heading out in a couple of hours to drink and eat and then drink a lot more.

time to pick out my outfit. tata.

maybe it's because it's friday.
maybe it's because it's february.
maybe it's because i went to bed at 9:30 last night and woke up feeling refreshed for once.
maybe it's because i'm hungry and need something sweet and salty like right now.
maybe it's because these recipes are weird but so intriguing in a 'makes sense' kind of way.

i don't know.

but it's time to pit potato chips against potato chips in a way it's never been done.

to be continued.

puerto rico. land of mofongo and rum. lots of rum.

it takes a bit of travel from LA, but it's a nice getaway destination nonetheless. sun and water can hardly ever be wrong.
