march madness, oysters, and little red shoes

But truly, what more could a girl need?

Today is another sunny gloomy day in the armpit of the Northwest. I was woken by my March Madness team (Kansas) losing. I was OK with it only because the team that beat them (VCU) is an underdog and I love those kind of upsets. Reminds me why I love basketball.

Then for lunch I went with my mother for happy hour to get fresh oysters at Lecosho.

All of this being done wearing my favorite pair of shoes: my little red (hand-me down) flats.

I use to HATE hand me downs.
But I soon got over that and learned to embrace it.

glitter isn't always gold, but rain is always wet.

I don't know why this title. Maybe it's because yesterday was sunny and beautiful. An actually nice spring time. And today it's pissing rain. BUT Anywho...

Last night was amazing! I went out bar hopping with my friend Kia. She just turned 21 so we had to do it right. And by bar hopping I mean, going to bars watching my friends drink, mean being DD and ordering vodka and cranberry without the vodka.

Randomly it turned into an epic night. Neumos was having a free 90's dance party with various Seattle DJs. So Kia and I danced the night away. I love it when fun things happen without planning.

Today is going to be yet another fun night. Youth Speaks Seattle is having their Youth Slam Finals tonight at town hall. Doors open at 6:00 PM/Show starts at 7:00 PM. So be there or miss out on an amazing poetic evening.

Shake shake shake it off!

Yesterday I hung out with my sister. She's in town from college for spring break. Even though in the pasted we didn't get along, lately we have been hanging out more. I am at that point where I like her as a person not because I have too. You know that feeling?

Anywho, we hung out yesterday. Then I went to go see Cedar Rapids (such a funny movie, recommend it!) So my outfit had to bring in spring the Seattle way: florals with black.

I am a huge fan of art. I was forced to go to art galleries as a child, but soon realized that was a real honor, a privilege I soon learned not to take for granted.

Then as I got older, my likes and interests changed and I really got into graffiti. I found it too be really fascinating. Taking an awful run down wall and turning into something strange and beautiful. Some graffiti I think is horrible and rude but for the most part it is an art form. One that is still fighting for respect.

Now, of course, like everything else graffiti is a "man's world." HOWEVER there are those talented lovely ladies holding it down. Too Fly, Claw Money, LA Graffiti Girls (just to name a few)

One of my all time favors, a women I believe has changed the game in so many ways is the beautiful french artists Fafi.

I love her characters! Sassy girls with hearts on their cheeks, curves, colorful wardrobes, and with a pinch of innocents in their eyes.

Fafi has teamed up with Married to the MOB, the fun loving rapper Kid Sister, Hennesy, and did a line of clothes and shoes with ADIDAS. That's just the beginning. She is always collaborating with all different types of media and never misses the mark.

She is fierce, strong, talented, and my personal hero. Fafi is changing the game with a paint brush in one hand and natural raw style in the other.

Golden & Growing.

Daylight savings is a funny thing. It really messes with a person's state of mind, well at least mine that is. My sleep pattern is off but don't get me wrong. I love how late it is when it gets darks.

The blog itself might have some new changes too. New writers, shirts, I am going to work on some DYI stuff and more tips on thrifting.

Color Blocking 101

Looking out my window, spring seems like a very distant idea. Seattle once again is throwing a curve ball with this weather.

But I am not letting that keep me down. I am working on many different projects. Keeping up with my blogs and writing. Editing a lot of film and trying to get my college stuff together. For awhile I was trying to keep myself busy, now I am trying to find time to breathe!

Since starting this blog, I've been falling more in love with fashion everyday. Fashion has a bad rep. People think it's stupid and snobbish.

In truth it's an art form just got to have the right equipment.

Spice any outfit up with some color!

shoes - (hand-me-downs)
pants - (TopShop) $40.00*
shirt - (buffalo exchange) $3.50
cardigan - (my mother's/hand-me-down)

Red Ring (H&M)

Gold Heat Watch (Goodwill)

*YES! I spent $40.00 on a pair of pants. But in the end, I thought it was worth it and have own these for almost a year now. Worth every penny

High School Musical

I am a sucker for a good musical. Yesterday I watched Glee (yeah I am a gleek, couldn't tell?!) and it made me want to break out my old musical playlist.

Music from the greats like: Passing Strange, Grease, Hair, RENT, Dream Girls, West Side Story, Wicked, and my all time favorite: Hairspray. Anything John Waters puts his creepy little hands on is GOLD to me.

Listening to all those classics made me miss my dancing days. When I took jazz, hip - hop, salsa, and yes even Irish dancing.

shorts - (St. Vincent De Paul) $2.50
belt - (St. Vincent De Paul) $1.00

French Fishing

Sunday is made for breakfast at 3:00, jazz, old movies, and baggy clothes. It's a day to relax, wear mismatch socks and trying hard not to stress.

I just saw a lovely french film: The illusionist (l'illusionniste). It was very sweet and cute. Although there isn't much dialogue but that's the best part about it. It's a film that truly speaks to less is more. I recommend it.

MTTM jeans (PLDNR) $15.00
belt (H&M) $4.00
fish shirt (Salvation Army) $0.89

London Fashion Week 2011

Fashion runs on a crazy schedule. New York Fashion week just ended, London Fashion week is about to end, and Paris fashion week is on it's way. It's sometimes difficult to keep up. But here are some of my person favorites for Fashion London Week.

Missoni Spring 2011
I love the over sized sweaters, knit wear, pastel colors, and floral patterns.

*******************Gucci Spring 2011*******************

I love the flowy dresses, tailored military jackets, big BRIGHT colors.

*************Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2011**************

Now this is my favorite collection so far. I am a big fan of sequins. I love the star patterns, large jewels, and woman blazers.
