Category — Dress Obsessed
I’m not one to plan a seasonal “Style Direction” with a serious face, but I definitely wanted to bring my autumnal black wardrobe to a new level. My vision was “Goth Cheerleader,” but so far it’s been “Dark Schoolgirl segueing into some real 90s vibes.” I am pretty happy that my fall uniform has basically consisted of a-line skirts, suspender tights, and crop tops. YOU KNOW, JUST DA BASICS.
Here’s my dream weird outfit.
Joyrich UFO Jacket, Billy Bob tee by Blood is the New Black, Shellys London platforms, and a cheerleading skirt.
I miss the era of Billy Bob and Angelina. It was truly nuts then: the “vials of blood,” the sex in limos before awards events, and finally, the infamous dragon tattoo. I lived for that shit. That was around the height of my own Angelina obsession. At least we can pay homage to that time in all of our lives by wearing that tee…

ELLO MY ‘LIL TWINKLIN’ STARS!
This is from the summer when I first got my hair cut. FOURTEEN INCHES OFF. Yes, I have the hair and will be sending it off to Locks of Love unless someone steals my luscious strands and makes them into a six-pack of merkins for their friends. The holidays ARE nigh, after all.
The top and skirt are both from the Marilyn Monroe collection at Macy’s. Since then, I’ve managed to add about six or seven pieces from that collection to my wardrobe, including an American flag halter and this red bandana dress that is now on sale. THAT COLLECTION IS LEGIT IMHO.
Yes, I realize the irony in posting a photo of Jayne Mansfield’s cenotaph when I’m talkin’ about Marilyn Monroe! Too bad Jayne’s celebrity wasn’t big enough to warrant a post-mortem collection at Macy’s. Can you imagine all the pink? All the hearts?? She was the best.

It’s meeeeee! Your old buddy, ol’ pal. MARIE RIE!!!!! Put down that chancla.…I’m back from my hiatus! Just want to ease on in here with a little outfit post if you don’t mind. The nice peeps at Members Only sent me this lil’ pink number to prance around in. Obviously I was going to love it. I feel like a PINK LADY! Also, my dad has worn nothing but Members Only jackets me whole life so I run RULL DEEP NOSTALGIA for this brand. AND… remember Mouth’s (Corey Feldman) amazing ensemble from The Goonies? At the time, I was too young and too eighties status to appreciate his fly style, but now I pretty much GO BANANAZ over the fact that he wore a PURPLE RAIN shirt and a grey Members Only jacket. BEST DRESSED GOONIE FOR REAL.
When I put this outfit together, my mood increased about 75% and entered into high level vibrations. I don’t know about y’alls, but there is something about a pink n’ purple color combination that makes me feel like a CANDY ANGEL. Then with these ice creams tights?? I’m in love (with me.)
I WANT THEM ALL!!!!!!! These bombers are thee perfect summer jacket IMHO.

♥ Outfit deetz: vintage dress given to me for my b-day by Sam ♥ , F21 leopard jacket, tights c/o We Love Colors ♥
DOST MINE EYES DECEIVE ME?!? ::drops to knees and slowly crawls to you like a sexy baby tiger:: You guys, my assholeness went up to an 11 these past few months while I got a new job and moved, but here I am, The One That Got Away. ALMOST, ALMOST! JK
Anyway it’s a whole new year and we have a whole lot of loving to do. To warm your cookies down there, here’s some shots of me and the lovely baybayshia Christina when we went shopping and burger grubbin’ last weekend. After hitting up Fairfax flea, we stopped by this cray store called Freak City, which Elizabeth told me about the other day. This shit gave me some serious raver flashbacks, which I think I can finally handle after thirteen years, but it was pretty awesome. I left with a lace cardigan and a shirt with zebras on it.
I love this place. Can’t wait to go back and get some Rhythm Nation earrings!
Thanks for the pics, Christina!

I know this is considered OLD NEWZ in blog years and all, but I just wanted to share a few of my INTIMATE PHOTOS from last month when the Strange Magic installation was at Space 15 Twenty. For those of you who made it out to any of the cool shindigs (Clueless screening, Q&A with Mindy Kaling, seeing yours truly read out loud with some of the other writers, and closing prom night), I hope you had thee time of your life. I SURE DID and I only was able to make it to a couple of them (see: “olds” with day job.) It was pretty amazing to see what we have been working for the past year come to life in this kind of way, as well as finally meet my bosslady Tavi in person along with many of my other Rookie colleagues. The past year has been pretty WILD and extraordinary and I owe a lot of it to being a part of Rookie. I feel quite lucky. However, I shall save my Mariah Carey emotions for a few weeks from now, when I go to New York and meet even more of my Rookie sistas! I AM SO EXCITED AND I JUST CAN’T HIDE IT JESSIE SPANOOOOOO
The sweetest gal Jamie and me
Karlito and I being very dramatic
All the readers!
I really want this glittery vagina flower
If you haven’t figured it out by now, the installation was made to look like a teenage girl’s bedroom. What’s weird is that it basically looks like my adult one, complete with period-stained panties. JK. COCHINA!!!!!!! Whose idea was that? Tavi!?! Still dying over here.
And as per my mom’s request, a photo of me and the magical wizard of our lives, Tavi.

Lately I’ve been wearing nothing but Blood Is The New Black shirts. They are crazy comfy, my dudes. And this Winona Forever shirt? Dyin’. Remember when Johnny Depp got this tattooed on him then when Winona and he broke up, he changed it to Wino Forever? Anyway, this was taken during my Palm Springs trip, when my bestie Shaun and I had dinner at Tinto, the tapas restaurant at The Saguaro. I highly recommend it. I’m dreaming of their homemade donuts with date jam, spiced honey, and date olive oil ice cream as we speak WHAT SHACHO MOUF I KNOW!!!!!! One thing though, make sure you eat din-din early. We ended up passing out sort of soon afterwards like asshole grandpas and I found my ass waking up every couple of hours due to horrifying, vivid, nightmares. I guess all them delicious meats n’ tings swimming around in your stomach during dreamland is NO BUENO. Go for a walk afterwards or something. LAWD

Last week I went to Palm Springs for a little vacation and to work on my tan…FINALLY. People usually run from Palm Springs during the triple digit weather but you know this B likes to live dangerously. I had big plans to do some vintage treasure hunting but ended up staying by the pool most of the time with a drink in hand and Motley Crue’s The Dirt in my lap. I’ve had that book for over a year and finally found the perfect setting to read it. It’s SO trashy and amazing. Right now I’m at the part where Nikki Sixx marries Donna D’Errico so it’s funny to see what that cuckoolicious is up to now. Anyway, who could blame me for doing some serious maxin’ and relaxin’ especially since I was staying at The Saguaro, which just opened up at the beginning of this year. Once I saw pictures of this technicolor paradise, I knew it was the one for Rie Rie. It was like staying inside of a RAINBOW!
View from our room
Always got to have serious neon nails when I go to Palm Springs. Yes that is a Babysitter’s Club pin. The burger was given to me and Tavi by the always cool Karlito at one of the Rookie Strange Magic events. I’ll post about those fun times soon too. I PROMISE BABYS.
More on my trip in future posts!

YOU GUYS I AM SO SORE! I did yoga for the first time in over a year the other day. When I got there, I rolled out my mat and it was half the size of everyone else’s. I SWEAR. Of course that kind of slapstick situation happens to me. LAWD! I will definitely return to yoga, but with a PROPER new mat. What else can we talk about? ::puts feet on desk:: If any of you guys are in LA, you should come out to the Rookie Road Trip events at Space 15 Twenty and hang out with me and a bunch of cool teens in a couple of weeks! As more details come along, I’ll let chu know what events I’ll be at since it’s going to be a week long thang. Now let me get back to listening to my new J-Lo playlist all-day.

One of favorite vintage shops, Laurel and Hector Vintage sent me over this beautiful neon mod dress and I had to put it on right away. The day was perfect for it, with my new haircut and the unbelievably gorgeous weather in LA. SUMMATIME I LOVE U
I wore it with Betsey Pollys, my Modcloth seashell purse, and a HUGE disco ball ring that I picked up at one of my favorite cholita shops. This thing is so bananas, everybody best knows not to mess wit me! OKRRR. I also wore my Motherland Amazon necklace! Don’t forget you have one more day to enter the giveaway!
Look at your sweet intergalactic neon angel.. P.S. trying to decide what movie to write about for next week. I usually like to surprise you guys but I’ll give you a lil’ hint: it’s between a Winona Ryder movie and a Renee Zellweger one. HMMM WUT COULD IT BE?? How To Make An American Quilt? Bridget Jones Diary? I’ll keep you boo-thangs guessing.
