And here is your PRECIOSA in yet another sartorial delight from I Heart Ronson for JCPenney. A BEAUTIFUL coral and taupe textured sweater. I’m wearing it over a dress from H&M, Girlprops sunglasses and an unintended matching purse from Urban Outfitters. I think I naturally gravitates towards coral my boos. This photo DOES not do it justice unfortunately but PLE TRUST IN THIS SWEATER. So far I have worn it ~only~ three times this week. In fact, I am wearing it right now over a sleeveless floral dress, with black tights and brown platform wedges as I sip on a glass of white wine. OBSESSHIA ADDAMS OVA HERE. I got it a little bigger so it could hang loose and fall off my left shoulder like Jennifer Beals à la Flashdance. Unfortch it’s sold out online so we can’t be twins but I think at this rate I’m going to have to get the yellow and grey one as well! (not joking)
FTC disclosure: I was given a gift card to shop from the very nice people at JCPenney and das how I got this sweater!

GREETINGS SWEET THANGS. It is time for another giveaway! This time I’ve paired up with Shabby Apple, an online clothing boutique that specializes in women’s dresses.

There are tons of dresses so it was hard to decide what to give away! I ended up choosing the Overboard dress because of its cute blue and white gingham pattern and it has the same name as our favorite Kurt and Goldie movie!

♥ I Heart Ronson dress c/o JCPenney, We Love Colors tights, Olsenboye boots c/o JCPenney, Clovenhoof beetle earrings, Still With You necklace ♥
This look is another one of my JCPenney finds: a dark grey floral dress from I Heart Ronson and the aforementioned $15 SECRET WEDGE boots. I chose to wear this outfit (on the hottest day of the GAWDDAMN month!!) to the Craig Ferguson show yesterday because John Waters was the guest. It was perfect timing since my style post on John Waters characters went up on Rookie the day before. LOVIN’ U UNCLE JOHN
OPI sent me some shades from their New York Ballet Collection to try out. I love me some Barbie pink nails but I’ve been curious about trying a NEUTRAL for awhile. The grey shade is called My Pointe Exactly with a silvery glitter on the top called Pirouette My Whistle. ::side eye:: That second pun is especially OOC. I will ignore the names because the shades are cute. The collection comes out in April. BTW, I think I am going to do more beauty-related posts on here. Would you guys be into that? I JUST WANNA GIVE YOU A NICE VARIETY OF GOODIES LIKE A FANCY TABLE SPREAD AT A PARTY!!!!!

I loved Moschino Cheap and Chic’s makeup-inspired collection for Fall 2012 but it was the print on this dress in particular that really caught my eye (NPI). Doesn’t it remind you of a certain scene in Mad Love with our dear Saint Drew?
I’m such a fucking purist when it comes to screencapping that I got pics off youtube first and wasn’t satisfied so I went to Best Buy, Fry’s and Blockbuster and NONE of them had Mad Love on DVD! How dare these retailers not have this fine film in stock. Now that I finally have it in my hands (Netflix) it’s only practical to do my usual breakdown like I did with Wishful Thinking. I also just replaced the shitty YouTube screencaps in that post with higher quality ones (along with a loads more new ones of Drew’s cute outfits!) Sigh. If only I was this obsessive with important shit like math I would have finished college.

As you know, I loves to loves me some ‘PENNEYS so when I was invited to check out their new customer experience and do some shopping I was pretty stoked. I wear a lot of Charlotte Ronson’s I Heart Ronson line and ALSO get a lot of my workout clothes there (including my favorite pink Adidas jacket.) This weekend I put on my shopping chanclas and lurked the new changes. In the past, JCPenney was famous for their constant one-day sales, special coupons and discounted signage. This month they introduced Fair and Square Pricing, a new sales structure where no coupons are needed and items are already set at their low, fair price. Right away, I noticed that the absence of discounted signage made everything look more neat and clean. VERY VISUALLY PLEASING. After picking out some items from my favorite Ronson-wear and MNG by Mango to try on, I checked out the shoes section and was happy to find these very Korkease-esque platform sandals at $30, HOW COULD I RESIST? I also found a great pair of black boots with a SECRET wedge for only $15. NOT BAD!
So here is my first outfit made up of JCP finds! You know I can’t deny a pink floral! The dress ($15!) is from Mary Kate and Ashley’s Olsenboye line. You might remember they made the Clarissa Explains It All boots that I wore ALL THEE TIME. BTW has anyone seen the movie Beastly where MK is a GOTHIC TEEN WITCH? It’s been sort of an inside joke slash prank for Emi and I for the past two years and I bought her the DVD for Valentine’s day. Can’t wait to finally watch this EDGY VERJ of Beauty and Beast (~~tale as old as time~~) I actually wore this outfit to the LA Zine Fair which was RULL COOL and I will talk about in another post(s) since I bought like $60 worth of zines.
Dress: Olsenboye for JcPenney, shoes: JCPenney, vintage coat, knee socks: Target, various jewelry from various places (chola stores), nail polish: Milani’s One Coat Glitter in Twinkle.
Why is my mood ring always black? I feel like Vada Sultenfuss.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY MY FRIENDS!!!!!! And Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! SO, I decided to whip up a lil craftin’ video last minute to show you how to make some special valentines for your sistaboos! Like last year, these are Ladyboner-themed, except this time we are making prize ribbon brooches!
Because each of these hunks are definitely a prize to our eyes and thighs! Enjoy!
Something I forgot to mention: use the glitter pens LAST. Them shits are so messy I was getting it all over the place. SO NOY.
As for my outfit, these are just some old thangs I put together real quick. Like I said before, my hair is being all “SEVEN DAYS” lately so I try to wear it up as much as I can. Don’t I look so sweet? ::bats eyelashes:: The bow is American Apparel, vintage skirt from the Fairfax flea market, heart wedges from Amiclub and an old top that I added white heart buttons to. I believe I got the necklace from Maker Faire a few years ago. Also, my nail polish is High Speed Fast Dry in Hot Pink Frenzy and Jewel FX in Hot Pink both by Milani!
Have a great Love Day everyone!

I didn’t plan on doing an INTIMATE look at the Jason Wu for Target collection because I went ~sailing~ the day it came out so I wasn’t able to line up at the RED GATES with all the other assholes unfortunately. Then a few days ago, I got an email from the lovely Phaedra asking if I planned on writing about it. I know it helps to see what these kind of clothes look like on my supermodel bod so I said “WHY NOT??” The above collage are the dresses I would have liked to try on but were either sold out or only available online. There wasn’t much left in the stores but I werq’d with what was left. HERE THEY ARE!
This sexy secretary look was pretty cute. I liked how there were a lot of blouses with ties. You know I love a good PUSSYBOW…
Although this dress had my favorite nautical colors, the design was a bit boring for my taste. But it did hug my girlish figure in all the right places. This was a medium. A lot of things seemed to run kinda big.
I liked this blue floral dress and debated on getting it but I ended up passing. Lately I’ve been in that shopping mood where if I ain’t CUCKOO for it then I don’t need to get it. (VERY RESPONSIBLE)
I wanted to really like this blue pleated floral skirt (same design as the dress above) but my crush on it was lukewarm. The shirt was cute.
Here I am swimming in this too-big coat!
AND THAT IS ALL. Overall, I thought the collection was cute but I wasn’t head over heels in love with it. What about chu all? Did you get anything? I also liked the baby blue flower purses (although I didn’t get to see them in person) but I’m saving up for my dream purse so I have to be picky. I also still want a Cambridge satchel, but probably not neon anymore because that shit is everywhere. It’s becoming the Lita of purses!

I went to Santa Barbara a couple of weeks ago and this is the outfit I wore, which made me realize that I haven’t done any black outfit posts on here in a long time! IRL though…I am always going back to my GOTHIC ROOTZ. I love wearing head to toe black, ESPECIALLY putana lace as you know. I’m sure I’ll also eventually start wearing a mantilla like Diane Pernet. The year before I started AL, my uniform was a simple black dress ALWAYS with some cleavage and often a touch of color, like a red belt or bright tights. I still like that look a lot but when it comes to documentation, it seems I got into the habit of only taking pics of my more colorful Kinderwhore outfits. Will you allow me to goth it out on here more often?!?
All of this beautiful black lace I am shrouded in are pieces from some rando chola stores + Urban Outfitter wedges + an old H&M purse.
It’s only been about two weeks or so since this picture was taken, but now my hair seems to have resisted participation in milkmaid braids. I gotta face the facts, friends. It’s just too goddamn long. I feel like my hair is a separate entity now and trying to get rid of me! It even caught a flame and started to singe when I was trying to cook some vegetables once! (Gotta keep an emergency scrunchie in the kitchen for this reason alone, ladies. OMG in my mind just now I imagined my hair turning into a noose like on the poster for April Fool’s Day! Scary! ANYWAY, THE RACE IS FINISHED. For those of you WTF’ing, I had decided to let my hair grow and grow and grow, similar to how some menz do with their beards. I wanted to get my hair to the same length as my mom’s was in the 70′s and I have indeed reached that goal. Now it is time to cut off a couple of inches and maybe thin it out or add layers so it doesn’t feel so heavy. As long as I can cover my bare breasts with it so we can have a picture of me like Daryl Hannah on Splash, then that’s all that really matters to all of us anyway…
