Block This, Biyatch.

I'm so ready to hit the beaches, biyatches!

With my Long Island vacation round the corner, I was inspired by the colors of the vast ocean that I'll soon be viewing, swimming, and frolicking in.  A little royal blue, tid bit o' sea green, and a dash of turquoise complete this I wish I were on vacation attire. 

Extra points for my mother pearl bracelet - oh yeah! 
Don't you love that I so freely give myself extra points?!

Obviously, this shot was taken by a man, baby!

I hereby dedicate this post to the *smack* 
K.I.S.S.   a.k.a   Keep It Simple Stupids!

The thing about dresses is that they're an instant outfit and mos def fall into the KISS category.
Ya can dress em up with bangles and treasures, add a funky ole belt, wear some killer shoes.
OR if you're running late, ya can just super KISSIFY it, slip it on and 
run out the door in 2 minutes flat, as I did this fine mornin'.

Sometimes it's just best to KISS and tell, ladies. ;)

Sniffin' out the scene with my mongrel, Bongo.

Well how dee how do!
How're yoooooooouuuu doin?!

This is the
 I'm so terribly cool and important (HA!)

Followed by belting out the National Anthem.
Nah, just kidding - but good guess!
But whatever could it beeeeee?

That's right!
You guessed it!
BEES, homies, God damn freakin, BEES took over. :(
At least they make the oh so sweet, delicious and nutritious honey.
And just for that, I forgive them for scaring the food babies outta me.

Custom Converse.

Last year I threw away my pink Converse that I had for seven years. Seven years! Me and my choose were tight, yo. It was a such a saaaaaaad day that I couldn't bear to get new ones right way.

Well, I'm glad I waited because recently, I found out about custom Converse - where YOU (the customer) gets to be the designer. 

Instead of going the boring solid color route, I funked it up a little by mixing and matching  prints and colors.
I hand picked everything from the print of each side and the tongue, to the color of the lace and stitching, to the side lettering that reads Mars Bars - a family nickname, to the color of the side panels and even the lil metal circle things that the laces come through! 

Ch-ch-check out my new digs. 
They be fly and sh*t.

Lace Blazer + Long Sleeve Blue T + Black Mini Cords

When I'm having a 

'I feel sorry for myself, I feel gross and bloated, and my hair is terrible, are my nose hairs showing' 

type of day, I like to disguise my insecurities with a large amount of chunky bunch of necklaces, a LOUD leopard headband, a sweat texturized lace blazer. Really, just anything to make the world think that I'm thinking:

Hey! Look at me! I'm wearing funky stuff! I think I'm awesome!

And so VOILA, an outfit is born out of I feel like a chunk monkster feelings.

Sway Chic

Yay! One of my fave stores, Sway, has finally gone online. It's about freakin' time!

Although I'm glad they're on the web - I still prefer physically going to their stores in San Francisco, Alameda, Berkeley and Concord. There's more merchandise and the vibe's always fun. 
BUT if you're not livin around the Bay Area, hit them up online! Here's a sneak peak at a couple of items from their site that I'm jonesin:

Holey Sweater + Hot Pink Tank + Mid-Length Pinstriped Shorts

These shots don't do the outfit justice. Wah, freakin, wah. Hubby wasn't around to bang, bang (not in that way!) me, so this is what we're working with.

Today I had a shoot for the awesome new online fashion video site, Joyus
I had a couple of dresses planned but then decided to go the fun casual route. They're gonna dress me up in their clothes anyhoo, might as well wear whatever I want :) Little did I know that they ended up letting me use my top as I showcased three pairs of ah-mazing jeans! I've been told that the video will officially be up and running this coming Monday. 

Stay tuned!

Hot Pink Cardigan + Long Blue & White Striped Dress + Rope Sandals

Now that I'm on the path of habitually waxing da armfeets (that'd be pronounced armpit in the English homies),  I gather up all my willpower to not shave between appointments or else my waxing lady will yell at me in Portuguese (she's from Brazil!). And as sexy as it is to be yelled at in a foreign language, she's got full control of the ooozing hot wax that goes on my poor tortured but fuzz free bod. 

So, what do you do when you've got a cute spaghetti strap dress you're dying to wear but da feets (short for armfeet) bears resemblance to the lush Amazionan jungle?
