Valley Girls Week Kickoff & Totally Awesome Giveaway!

My favorite VG on the right: EG Daily!

If you’ve hung out around in the Agent Lover lair for awhile, you may have noticed how much I love valley girls and anything related to them. So this week is….ALL ABOUT VALLEY GIRLS!  That means we will be talking about valley girl-themed movies, favorite famous VG’s and other totally tubular stuff! In the meantime, why not take a trip back  to my posts on my fave movies, Valley Girl (duh) and Earth Girls Are Easy, as well as my interview with singer Josie Cotton from Valley Girl!

I have to say it always pissed me off that the poster for Valley Girl did NOT have the real girl Deborah Foreman on it! Who was this imposter??

But that’s not all dudes and dudettes… we are kickin’ this thang off with a totally awesome giveaway! The winner will receive Valley Girl on DVD (although I’m sure ALL OF YOU have it already!) and I’ve also paired up with We Love Colors to give away a couple of my favorite items: 2 pairs of their knee socks and 2 pairs of their Nylon/Lycra Microfiber Tights ( Styles #1053 or #1008) ! All you have to do is leave a comment below and I’ll pick the winner on Friday! Gag me with a spoon you muthas!

EDIT: I ended up getting really sick this past week so we will resume VGW on Monday! I will keep comments open until Sunday night and I’ll choose the winner on Monday. Sorry for the delay everyone!

October Movie Style Icon: Girly

Have you ever decided to watch a movie based on a font? I have. And that movie was Girly aka Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny & Girly. A MOUTHFUL, I KNOW. No wonder they shortened it! Take a look at that flowery pink font and try and say it’s not a siren call to my girlish instincts. I’ve seen this movie around peripherally, as Netflix loves to recommend me movies about evil girls in pretty dresses (aside from strong black woman movies or demented foreign flicks.)

Girly is a 1970 British horror film about a murderous family, focused on the pretty blonde Faux-lita known as Girly. With her Lisbon sister-esque locks, Girly only looks innocent, but don’t be fooled by that angelic face, this bitch is MAJOR TROUBLE! YA BETTA RUN!

Girly and her brother, Sonny, like to pretend they are schoolchildren and play pranks on unsuspecting older men. The men are lured back home where they are expected to “play The Game.” If they choose not to partake in whatever activity Girly and her family have planned for them, the menz will soon meet an UNKIND CONSEQUENCE.

Naturally, Girly’s Peter Pan-collared dresses, knee socks and frilly button-ups speak to my style. I’m really into her color combinations, especially the brown and I ALMOST NEVA fux wit no dookie brown. I especially love the navy and brown combo you can see in the photo below. Does anyone get Rachel Antonoff and Dear Creature vibes here?

I need this skirt and white blouse! Complete with axe of course.

The real diva is of the house is Mumsy. Dressed up all fancy just to knit a scarf in her rocking chair! Now that is a true style icon right there.

Here’s a photo for the all the girls who like dudes in bowties. I’m with you, but then again, I love all men in everything.

The Ultimate Lurker: Nanny!

While on the hunt for my birthday dress (which is this Sunday as you already know I’m sure) I came across this PERFECT Girly pinafore on ASOS. So cute!

Instant AL

Continuing with my new tradition, here are my Instagrams from September! This pic was from the Gradient Nail Tutorial I did for Rookie, and in case you missed it, here’s the post I did on Mean Girl Movie Style.

♥ Both me and my buttocks miss moonbathing naked under the Big Sur sky…at least I can gaze at these photos and look forward to my return. ♥

♥ I still have my unicorn sheets from when I was 8! ♥

♥ On the way to Big Sur, we stopped for lunch at my spiritual place, Madonna Inn; stocking up (~NPI – NO PUN INTENDED~) for fall with tights from We Love Colors! ♥

I will consider this my accidental art piece: Deep Thoughts And A Big Banana. Also a good name for a p-no somewhere, I’m sure.

♥ Ain’t nuthing like a fresh cup of Hunkules to jumpstart my morning; Can you believe I got these John Staymoist stickers made in 2005? I truly am a ride or die chick for you Stamos!; I’m pretty sure poliopoliopolio is my brother from anotha mutha. He sent me this New Mutants pin!; when I stocked up on candy to review for Rookie I saw this CORN SODA. You guys can all buy me a bottle for my birthday next week thnx ♥

♥ Trader Joe’s is on some serious TOSCANO CHEESE GAME right now. This one is dipped in syrah. I thought the typical nailsdid pose would be great to show off my block o’ heaven as well. ♥

♥ Mr. Shankly’s cabeza looks crazy cartoon-y huge next to Mason’s!; my friends had a balls-themed BBQ. Cochinos. Super delishis though.; the Tom Kha soup at Nakkara is my fave. Especially because it comes in this urinal-looking thang.; Levon and I playing with Leyla’s iPad! It was my first time touching one.. OMG. ♥

On that note, I would also like to say RIP to Steve Jobs. I have a special thanks for the man that invented the iPhone WHICH also helped rid me of the weird driving anxiety I had for YEARS. Sorry 2 B so dramatic sounding my boos, but it’s true! Once I got an iPhone and used that Google Maps GPS app…LAWD MY LIFE DUN CHANGED!! No sense of direction + constantly driving on the freeways of southern Cal = panic attacks for Rie Rie. I’ll never forget that Steve! And on THAT note, I ordered the iPhone 4s today! You have no idea how stoked I am. I have had this dinosaur 3G for more than three years! She and I have been through so much…but I like my phones like I like my cars like I like my women…FAST. Cannot waaaaaaiiiiit.

Me, Myself, And My One Pair Of Jeans

I jokingly said I would post this as an outfit photo for the blog, then my bff said I really should. This was me hiking around Big Sur, looking MIGHTY CASUAL. Most of you have only known me as a Dress Obsessed girl, but the reality is I once bought a pair of jeans just to see how it felt…and ended up in them quite a lot, so now I actually have TWO!  I realized if I’m wearing jeans, I don’t dress them up in my usual fancyways. I always want to look like Mikey from The Goonies (double denim) or Wayne from Wayne’s World (black tee and Converse), with a touch of Ponyboy Curtis. Is it so wrong if I want to go from extreme femme to ladybutch?!??!

Anyway, I’m kind of interested in trying those Levi’s Curve ID. Thoughts? Anyone? Don’t worry, I’m not going to be wearing jeans all the time on here. Don’t want to get everyone EVEN MORE horny. This IS a Dress Obsessed way of life after all. Plus, like I said, I only dress like those three dudes so my outfit posts would get totally boring after a while I’m sure….

One Word Movie Review: Drive

Forgot to post this two weeks ago but I’m thinking better late than never. And I know it is an obvious word choice but it is what left my lips when the credits started to roll. FROM MY LIPS 2 GAWDZ EARS!!!!!

Drive has all the elements that satiate my HORN LEVELS. Ryan Gosling X Fast and The Furious…you know I loves my car movies. The leather gloves. Kavinsky on the soundtrack. Christina Hendricks with a bamboo earrin’ and a gold minx manicure. And then of course….ALL OF THE BLOODY VIOLENCE!!! Total p-no, my dudes. And there isn’t even a sex scene!

A final warning to anyone, male OR female who dares mimic “Driver” for Halloween with that Scorpion jacket…do not be surprised if a 5’2 Filitaliana girl dressed like a _______ (sorry costume is confidential) attempts to spontaneously dry hump you out of nowhere. You’ll only have yourself to blame.

Are You Trying To Kill Me, Rossella

First of all,

How dare you design the most perfect shoe AND matching purse in the world and think I, Marie Madeline Lodi, Esquire, will be able to go on living my life normally from this day forward!??!? Probs going to have to eat ramen for the next six months or so, but it’s going to be so worth it. I just saw my whole shoe life flash before my eyes. Legs spread for bread wearing them shoes, walking down the aisle with my husbs-to-be wearing them shoes, carrying my daughter, Maria Antonia Sabato Jr wearing them shoes, Gramma Rie napping in a rocking chair wearing them shoes. (The grass on the shoes are dead and brown in that flash forward btw but still look amazing.) Rossella, goddess that she is, basically created Sedmikrásky in the form of a shoe. WHAT KIND OF WIZARDRY IS THIS, MY GODMOTHER?

The whole Moschino Cheap and Chic Spring line was perfection. Look at all these sexy shoes and cute purses and STRAWBURRY garments. I felt like the dad from Strangers With Candy looking at this collection.

Carrot hat!

The one on the right reminds me of my fruit basket purse!

SO BEAUTIFUL

THE END. Still thinking about that shoe up there though.

Jeremy Scott Spring 2012

 

Weetzie Bat x Alabama Worley x Earth Girls Are Easy.  I’M LUVIN’ DIS CRAZY. The only thing I really can’t get behind even as a joke are the Hot Topic circa ’99 flames (not pictured), but everything else would be perfect for the neon road trip movie I’m writing in my head. ESPECIALLY those platform saddle shoes! I know you’d expect me to talk shit but I think they’re kewt. God I love an 80′s pastel brights color scheme SO HARD. Way too fun.

Creepin’ With Lydia Hudgens

AHHH! Excuse my beauty, but I forgot to post this other set of photos Lydia Hudgens took of me creepin’ around a scary motel. These were taken the same time as we did this photo shoot. My hair and makeup was done by the lovely Rebecca Butz. The dress is H&M, the shoes are Jeff Camps, the bow is American Apparel, the purse was my grandmother’s and the Bitchface is all mine… Since this shoot, I’ve worn this dress a couple of times and I like how it looks a lot better without the pussybow (love that word) blouse underneath. Makes it look a lot less bulky bartacamos. What shall we call this look? A lil Dorothy of Wizard of Oz? Pollyanna? OR JUST YOUR FANTASY??? Let me know.
