Channeling Dior.


So I'm channeling the Dior Spring 2010 vibe here.

Classic movie star look.


I thrifted this dress, which is a long sleeved MAXI dress...shoulder pads...the works.
I freakin' love it.
Too bad I can't show you the whole thing...camera is nonexistent still.



Trying a darker eyebrow (since mine do grow in BLACK and all) and very little eye makeup.
Basically just a little bit of brown eyeshadow and some mascara...it takes about 2 mins.
I woke up and my hair was soooo dirty and I'm soooo lazy about my hair (always) that I just did what it told me to do and I got this.
Took 5 mins...and thats only because I changed it twice.
My roots are atrocious, but I'm kinda just running with it.
P.s. My "real" roots is what I'm referring to...you can see them in that last 2 photos pretty badly.
I'm going to see if I can make it another month...?...gross.
Trying to make white trash pretty....?

Whatever.

Not bad for being sick AGAIN.  
It's such a bummer to be sick while the weather is simply amazing and it's practically throwing rocks at your window to come out and play...damn-it.
I'm about to finish my Spring 2010 production (about damn time), so I've been getting up super early to run around and then come to work...

At least I'm treasury Dept. today where the whole front of the store rolls open so I can catch a breeze and see the sky :)
Come by and visit if you're around.
We can chat about life while I sip tea...

...or we can exchange "your mother is soooooo fat that..." jokes.

Either way.

Who will be officially living in Brooklyn again by this weekend.
Tear.
But I'll be happy when I'm there!


We had the most amazing brunch.
Coffee, polenta amazing-ness, and this crazy desert!

See ya, Brooklyn.


This was randomly in the car.
A Monarch Butterfly...so beautiful.

Soooo, oddly enough I ended up back in New York just 2 weeks after this trip!
Those photos are awesome and will be around soon.

D A Y   7 .


Dinner with a side of Karaoke!


Margaritas...crazy margaritas.


Ted's had chili powder around the rim!
Baaaahhhhhhhh!


The guys ordered this tequila called Mezcal which means agave or maguey.  It's made from the heart of the maguey plant which is called the pina.  Anyhow it was served with these dried up grasshoppers.  You're supposed to eat them with the mezcal, but while sipping it, not shooting it.


So gross.


Ted's Neil Diamond shirt looking like a Chucky Doll!...I had to get a photo of this rare occasion.



Ted lookin' hot damn.


I swear there were other people with us, but there just didn't make it into the photos...?
Opps.


KARAOKE!
WOO WOO!




This guy was so good and his moves were to die for.
That star (along with the bar) reminded me of Long Beach...?



Ted and I sang "Free Your Mind" by EnVouge.
Just sayin'.


This was the breakdown.


I am wearing: Shirt - Vintage silk blouse, Pants - Jean Paul Gautier, Shoes - Cool, Casual by Slow and Steady Wins the Race, Bra - from U.O., Jewelry - Vintage from swapmeet @ Rosebowl.


And I'm out.
To smoke cause that was nerve racking.


This guy's whole situation was mind blowing...



So I had to take a photo with him...of course.
He looks crazed...literally.


The scarf made me do it.


The lovely Sarah.



Who convinced me to sing with her...this look of "noooo waaaay!" on my face is because that was the exact second that I realized Sarah could actually sing!



And I can NOT...so I kept that mic waaaaaaay down.

Great last night in Brooklyn.
