Cher Horowitz’ Bad-Girl Friend

Modcloth top, Marilyn Monroe @ Macy’s skirt, Modcloth tights, Macy’s booties

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…

Agent Lover Loves The Domestic Dame – Giveaway!

Evababdyoll

 

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!

Here I am wearing the Eva nightgown with an eyeball mask in a hot tub surrounding by candles. Lucky for you, The Domestic Dame is giving away one of these same nightgowns to an AL reader!!! That means we can be twins, but only if you wear the same mask, in a hot tub surrounded by candles. A small pond or a pedicure chair is fine too. Leave a comment below to enter and check out their other goodies to add to your wish lists. The contest is open to US readers only. I will choose the winner on Friday. Good luck! UPDATE! I have chosen thee lucky winner via random.org. Congratulations to lucky #4 Madeline! Thank you to all who have entered!

Two Blondes, One Brunette

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.

Pink Lady

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.)

Just A Couple Of Freaks

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
♥ 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.

Christina’s outfit deetz: Marc Jacobs jacket, vintage top, skirt, and shoes.

Styling For Rookie “She’s Just A Wish” Photoshoot

FUN NEWZ! The photoshoot I styled for Rookie is now up! Fellow Rookie Tara Niami was the photographer, and this was my first time both working with her as well as styling a shoot for the mag. The month’s theme was Drama, so I went on a search for dresses with interesting fabrics and dramatic details. I ended up using a gold, glittery, 70s disco-looking number and a ruffly red dress from Shareen Vintage, this amazing silver metallic Shida Tatsuya jacket and a split panel Twinkle dress from Koshka, and a beautiful black lace nightgown from Bluesville USA, as well as accessories from Motherland and Pygmy Hippo Shoppe. Working on this shoot was a blast, and the models, Audrey and Roshanay, are a couple of rad ladies. I’m looking forward to do more styling in the future. You can see the whole photoset, “She’s Just A Wish,” here.
