I recently wrote an article for Rookie about my love for the movie, Steel Magnolias aka STEEL MAGZ, so I thought it would be a good time to talk about how much I love the character Annelle’s style in the film. TBH, she isn’t my numba one favorite character (that would go to Truvy played by THEE Dolly Parton, duh, or that ol’ grump Ouiser) but Annelle (played by Daryl Hannah) definitely has the cutest look of las chicas de magnolias.
Annelle rolls into Truvy’s salon as the new gal in town who goes from awkward wallflower to party girl to born-again Xtian, all throughout the course of the film. While she doesn’t spit out dat rich, quotable word venom like the other ladies do, I do appreciate her vintage specs and her nameplate necklace. These days she’d definitely have a pretty good Instagram following with that look.
WAIT what are those scary ass balloons in the background!!
Are those some sheer pastel pink polka dot gloves I spy??
Bonus: after a year or so of painfully living VCR-free due to (never learning how to hook up this ancient device) laziness and moving, I can now happily say that me and my VCR are back in action. Delishis…

I have to admit, these days I can appreciate simplicity in things that I wear. Don’t worry, I ain’t gettin’ SOFT ON YA, but I’ve definitely learned how to appreciate a basic tee. I’m sure working in basics in my day job has contributed to that. This past year I’ve acquired a decent amount of crop tees, which are perfect for wearing under pinafore dresses. I am loving this leopard print one from Swell.
♥ Outfit deetz: leopard crop top c/o Swell, Asos dress, Modcloth tights and shoes. ♥

Have you ever heard the sweet sound that is leather rubbing against… pleather? That sensual, aural combo was today’s soundtrack as I drove all over the city getting my taxes done, eating tacos, and being a first-time visitor to the magical weave store where my friend Lenora bought me a single fake braid (can’t wait ’til that makes an appearance on here.) In tow was my most prized accessory as of late, an iPhone case from Bandolier, AKA, something I have dreamed about my whole (iPhone) life.
Bandolier makes beautiful leather cases that attach to a decorative, cross-body length strap, so you can wear your iPhone like a purse. There are two slots on the backside of the case that holds cash and cards, perfect for the low-maintenance type of occasion where you wouldn’t want to carry a regular bag, like grabbing a Slurpee at 7-Eleven or going to see a show. Bandolier has gold and silver chains, as well as leather straps of various colors. They make them for both the 5 and 4 series, in case you are like me and running on the even number iPhone cycle! When does 6 come out anyway? Hoping that version will finally have a built in flat iron…

They are uploading a new themed image everyday (@laurelandhector) up until Valentine’s Day and all you have to do is post a photo that matches their theme of the day on your Instagram while tagging @laurelandhector and using the hashtag #LHVALENTINES !
So, what can you win???
The three coolest and most creative posts will each win an Electric Banana Shimmy Top!
Laurel and Hector has been a huge favorite of mine for a while now. When I first featured Kee Kee, the boss lady behind L&H, they were primarily a vintage shop, selling the cutest mod dresses (including this one named after moi!) and now Kee Kee displays just how incredible her design talents are with the collections she releases, like “Lip Service ” which has this mind-blowing Clueless-inspired set!
I want everything!

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…

I first laid my eyes on the adorable vintage-inspired aprons and nightgowns from The Domestic Dame at Unique LA. Immediately my ojos turned into hearts and I was in LOVE! Aren’t they the cutest brand ever? And all made right here in LA!

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.
