Monday

30 Aug

Hey gays & girls. I would ask you what you did this weekend, but I really don’t care. I, on the other hand, got a new bed, watched “The Land Before Time,” & then I made some roasted eggplant hummus. Party machine comin’ through….

I would blog about something having to do with fashion, but fuck it. Even I am getting bored with that crap. Just don’t wear your hair in a bun with a scrunchie wrapped around it & I’m sure you’ll look fine.

Yeah, well- fuck all y’all. See ya.

Statesboro Blues

28 Aug

School may have started back for most, but technically, summer isn’t over. & with summer, comes a shit ton of music festivals. Being a music journalist, I get to go to my share of these little shindigs. San Fran is home to some pretty good ones…& in light of two of my favorite music festivals coming up soon (Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX & VooDoo Fest in New Orleans), I figured I’d put together a little something for the occasion.

Have a good weekend, dudes.

Get r’ done

27 Aug

As stated in my “about me” section, I write for a music magazine out here. Though I love fashion & bullshit bullshit bullshit…being a music journalist has been my dream job since I was about 8. My best friend of 20 years moved back to Austin, TX (along with her brothers & mom- where she is originally from) about 5 years ago & has been trying to get me out there with her ever since. I came close to living there in 2005, but went to New York instead…& ever since New York, I haven’t been able to keep my feet on the ground.

However, now that graduation is closely approaching, it’s time for me to look for big girl jobs- & as luck may have it, a few magazines based out of Austin are interested in talking to me. I’ll be going down there soon to interview & wow them with my knowledge of…nothing…& hopefully be all set once I get my diploma. I don’t know- I just miss Allison & we’ve been talking about this happening ever since we went our separate ways.

Who knows what the future holds, really? I’m applying for jobs there, New York, Atlanta, Nashville, & even at a place in Pittsburgh. I miss the south way too much, so New York & Pittsburgh are not at the top of my list, but at this point in the game, whoever offers me a job, I am taking it- despite location.

Blah blah blah- since I am going to Austin once it cools down & need to look somewhat put together (but still slightly off balanced, since that seems to be my typical style) when I meet with potential employers, here’s a little number I threw together & wouldn’t mind wanderin’ around Austin in.

Bird

26 Aug

My bushy browed, bright eyed, favorite little prickly pear model (on R: Bambi Northwood-Blyth)┬ádid another photo shoot that makes me clap my hands & cheer for her. This time she’s wearing her hair the same way I always wear mine: a complete throw up of a messy mess. I love it…& her. She’s just precious.

& here she is one more time for ManiaMani’s video (part one & two) for their newest collection, Dust.

Big Easy

23 Aug

I’m heading to New Orleans pretty soon; going back to the city I consider my second home & taking one of my best friends with me (since she’s never been). Chances are, we’re just gonna drink too much & hang out in dirty bars listening to 900 year old black men sing the blues, but thankfully for us- that sounds like the most perfect time.

Since it gets a little bit windy in NO, I opted for pants instead of a dress/skirt/shorts. & I figured we’ll probably go to the aquarium (because who doesn’t like a good aquarium?) & those places are always cold. Anyway- here’s something I am planning to wear one of the days we are down there. I love that shirt; it’s been a staple in my wardrobe for over a year. So comfortable & stupid looking.

Also, I will be going to Texas soon, cos it turns out three magazines down there are interested in talking to me. Crossing my fingers for a job the second I graduate. I don’t feel like moving back in with my mom right after graduation. Let me be one of the small statistics that actually gets employed these days, please….

PS: Today is my brother’s 29th birthday. I would wish that piece of shit a happy birthday, but I really don’t care. Love you, bro.

“You’ve got Plaza on you”

20 Aug

I am going home in a few weeks to pay a visit to my sweet friends, lovely family, & my two favorite shitty bars. I just bought some motorcycle boots the other day & have been planning outfits around them for different places. Since I use home (Birmingham, AL) as my inspiration 98% of the time, I based my motorcycle boot outfit around a regular ol’ night on the town with my pals.

The Nick is my favorite bar back home. It’s also the most disgusting. I mean, I honestly want to puke if I accidently touch a wall or the ground with uncovered parts of my body. It’s so gross, yet so amazing. The Plaza (my other favorite bar) is the exact same way- except, I think you run a higher risk of catching a STD by just standing inside The Nick rather than The Plaza. Ah, home….

That Guns N’ Roses shirt makes me wanna punch something. In a good way, of course….It also makes me want to listen to Ram Jam; I have no idea why, but I am about to do just that.

Toes & Feet

19 Aug

I still can’t get on board with the whole socks & high heel thing, however, I’m all for mary janes & socks. It has a lot to do with the fact that mary janes & ruffle socks were a staple in my wardrobe from the time I was 3 up until…well, now. & besides, how cute is this picture? It made me want to put on my red buckle shoes right away. I just can’t decide which pair of red buckle shoes to wear, as I have 4 different kinds. Oh my, dilemmas.
