I was left quite speechless walking into the Crossroads store on College Ave. in Rockridge upon seeing a two-piece skirt and top set in bright bubblegum pink, an homage to Barbie! It was only $15!!! I couldn’t believe what a grand sweep I had made with that golden purchase. Every once in a while, I see some new and inspiring outfit at Crossroads, amidst all the other used clothing items. I love two-piece sets because you already have the full outfit assembled for you and you just need to add shoes, a bag, and accessories! Genius way to cut dress-up time in the morning in half. Easy as pie! Elle Woods here we come! ❤ ❤ ❤
How I love shopping at Nirvana in Westfield, NJ! Bought a pair of camo Kim Zozi Hippie Bling sneaks on their 70% off sale! These kicks have neat silver chains on the backs of the them and silver lining by the laces. Gonna strut down the hot pavement in the East Village tomorrow in these bad boys and see my friend Geoff’s punk rock band Gillian at Arlene’s Grocery!
Today was epic in every way possible! I went to the Haight-Ashbury Skunkfunk clothing store after winding up at the Mission store by accident for a Youtube/Google video project. I met two other fantastic models, who including moi, made up a killer trifecta for the afternoon shoot! I had worked with Brandyy Sky at the other store for a promo window modeling gig. Apparently, her father gave her the name ’cause of his love of Brandy and Sky Vodka! Too funny. The other girl Kelly Shepard was a Fiona Apple lookalike with a rad sense of humor. My first outfit was a multicolored jungle theme dress that tied in front. The second look was a red and blue striped form-fitting dress. I joked to Kelly that I felt like a Betty homemaker with my very own blueberry muffin tray bending over a hot oven! I brought my fire and seductive Marilyn edge to the filming session in front of a black backdrop and then inside one of the dressing rooms. Later, we filmed on the street and got our last shots doing runway prowls up Haight Street! So many giggles were had. I enjoyed most the friendly and playful nature of the team and everyone’s willingness to share the spotlight. I got a lovely $100 store credit for my participation. Stay tuned for the video footage!! <3<3<3
I love love loved the Union Square Mac demonstration on both Saturday and Sunday! The show was fantastic, including sexy male models in orange Speedos singing and doing laundry onstage and throw soap around! I enjoyed getting my lips and eyes done! The rose champagne eye shadow and rose pink lipstick were wonderful tones for my light skin. I liked the non-flaking mascara the makeup artist put on best! I always use cheap drugstore mascaras like Loreal which crumble once they’re dry. Take-away products from the sessions are: Rosy Rym Lip Liner, Please Me Lipstick, Painterly Eye Primer, Practice Makes Perfect Eye Liner, etc.. Great products overall and long lasting wear!
