So I started taking pics earlier in the day but it was way too fucking hot to be outside in 100 degrees weather with a goddamn nylon overcoat on. I was sweating so hard it looked like my body was crying tears!! I decided wrap it up and finish things later that night. I loved the orange grainy effect the street lights gave off. The hardest part was trying to capture my skin tone in the dark light. Yes you can't see black people in the dark, lol! I'm definitely going to work on doing more night shots! It was quiet, peaceful and most of all NO LOOKY LOOS! It's okay to watch me take pics but it's crossing the line when you're in my personal space talking to me. I'M WORKING HERE, FUUUUUUUCK!
My week has been going AWESOME and I should have some items up in the store today. I'm little rusty since I left my measurements on my desk at the studio which should be okay for most items. Since it's all oversized shit. I'll have it fixed on Monday, wonk wonk!
Love you all soooo much! Thanks for hanging in there with me while I go through some minor changes in my personal life (moving, mom stuff, store). I will definitely be posting more once I get situated. Ugh LIFE!

Growing up dark skinned was pretty hard cause I got picked on and called names like Blackie, Mudface, etc. But I've grown to learn that it's my #1 asset...other than my face, ass and legs, hehe! Nowadays I pose in shadows to make my skin look even darker. Weird but I want to be black as fuck!! Do they have spray tan for that?? Hahaha just kidding!
Anywho my inspo for this look came from Spanish Moss' new FW11 collection...DUH! I just wanna be dipped in all their shit! The bells the have coming out next season are INSANE!!
So I was just fucking around but WOW her makeup is exquisite! I'm actually too scared to wear a lot of makeup cause I have a very hard and angular face. (I can cut you with my jawline!) So I always feel trannified or manly when I cake it on! Oh the life of an insecure blogger, wonk wonk!
Well I got the keys to my place and I'm slowly moving in. It's going to be weird not having 2 places to live but a bigger place is sooooo worth it. Do you know what it's like to have 1 shoe at separate locations and looking for both of them? DIEl!!
Well before I go just have to say THANK YOU for all the support from the other bloggers out there who have written about, linked or added me to their blog roll. It really humbles me to see I inspire others with my vintage craziness!
OMFG, I totally forgot how much work goes into running a store alone. Just have to get everything listed by this weekend and I'm fucking free! So the wait will be over and you can buy all my shit....YAY...THE END!

It's getting hot in Houston so it's time for me to throw my negative A tits in ya face, hahaha! Ain't nothing wrong with a little ribcage cleavage, right?? Some people got it...unfortunately mine is in my ass and thighs!
So okay yeah I've been hella busy. Summer school with Ephraim, trying to get everything ready for the store, move on the 1st, pack for New York and blogger shit! Trying to be Mom of the Year/Blogger of the Year is extremely hard. I'm sooooo grateful for all the opportunities that are coming my way but when it comes to my little guy I'm all in. So I'm cutting my trip down to like 15-20 days. I'm one of "those Mom" I can't help it, hehe! Also Joel's going to Scotland on business, so you know I had to see my Babylove before he leaves me for like a month, booooooooo. You know me, I'll make it through!
Remember if you live in the NYC area and you want to collabo, chill, holla at ya girl just email me at email@example.com. If you're known to be creepy, don't even bother. We can be friends...just online, lol!
Love you all from the bottom of my vintage heart but I have to go and (shutter) cut down my wardrobe!

So lately I've been on this vintage hippie vibe laced in floral crowns, fringe and bells. It was all due to this video...it has been my biggest inspiration so far! If you look hard enough I appear in the fireplace. Hahaha jk, jk I wish!!
Spanish Moss has done it again people and that model, WOOOOOW! It's good shit, check it out.
Does anyone remember wearing this shit??
There was 4 sides to the 90s...preppy denim americana, gothic chic, rainbow gangsta and PSYCHEDELIC RAVER!! You weren't cool back then if you didn't own any Joe Boxer or Tripp. That or a virgin who can't drive!
All that's missing is a pair of Docs.
Make you think of TLC?
ANYWHO, love you all...I haven't forgotten about my readers, DUH! Thank you for loving me back.

When I think of velvet in the summertime I get all giggly tingly inside, hahaha!
Idk it's definitely that time of the year for me to bust out my best assets...MY LEGS with an ass to match! The perfect accessories to short shorts. Growing up I thought I was freak cause I have extremely long legs and arms for a short person. Like I'm only 5'4 but when combined with heels I look like a regularly proportioned tall person! Weird right? I guess being a freak of nature has finally paid off. SCORE!
Well I've found my house...FOR FUCK SAKES! Seems like forever but I've finally found a place with enough atmosphere to fit my personality and blogger needs. Oooooh and it has a SUN ROOM and this man made walk in closet under the stairs!! When I say it's huge I mean HUUUGE! I'm happier than a pig in shit right now!! ;D
I would love to stay and chat but now a bitch gotta pack!
