Useless ramblings

I meet you all once again at the same time doing the SAME thing....on the computer, working on CAD, missing Gossip Girl...sniff sniff..thank God for TIVO.
So, for the past few days all ive been thinking about is HALLOWEEN! An actual excuse to dress up in a silly costume = awesome!! Ive never understood how people dont take advantage of Halloween..seriously its the only time you can get dressed up in your sluttiest form and not get persecuted for it...
And though i have gone down that rough sexy path before (lol...believe me next time you decide to go uber sexy for halloween, make sure reckless friends are not taking reckless pictures to end up in reckless places...i.e. facebook!! NOT a good look i assure you...many O.M.G. what was i thinking?? WHY am i posing like that???? moments..) and im so bored with the cliche sexy nurse, sexy police officer, sexy prisoner...blah blah blah!!!!!! So its been stressful trying to find a costume!! If i spent this much time on my schoolwork......
What is anyone going as for halloween and what are you doing?? The Cavens are throwing a halloween party in Md that i shall be attending, and should be FUn!! (Nigerians...i wonder if they will actually wear costumes, not to talk of putting any effort into it??)
Anyway i finally found a costume today and i'm soooooooooo excited...its given me motivation to em...tighten things up....cant be caught looking sloppy in my costume now innit :) Its a secret for now hehee because such are the things that spice up my life.

I cant believe I'm missing GG for this...

........'THIS' equals being stuck in a school computer lab playing around on Photoshop and Illustrator...Bleh! I wish i was home cuddled under my covers with a cuppa hot tea watching the fabulous Upper east siders battle their shallow problems (seriously, between Gossip Girl and the Hills, I need to pull one of these girls aside and ask them if they need some REAL problems??? I'm more than willing to offload my plate here :)....)

This weekend I have officially crowned myself the ultimate party girl (youth...YOUTH!! this is evidence!)...I realised that were I to be a celebrity, I might not be that nice classy breed that you only see at events and the like...My girls and I just might be the Lindsay Lohans & co stumbling out of the club at 4am with a suspiciously disoriented look in my eyes. I have seriously been on a partying binge from Wednesday night & thurs night (NY - mansion & Marquee respectively)..Fri & Sat in DC (2 Nigerian independence day parties - i need say no more) and back to NY on sunday night (Home/Guesthouse)..... and so I met 11am Monday morning with an emergency call to my doctors office (Do you smoke? - No, Do you drink ---errrrrr...can I even answer socially anymore?) Le sigh..

My birthday has come and gone (HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE --- must milk the fab libra month for all its worth ps. Happy birthday to all my fellow librans!!) and it was very...adventurous! Lets just stay the plan started with Kareoke, somehow dabbled into a strip joint (don't ask), and ended up at Guesthouse...eventful no? It was lovely to see all the girls out and about, even those Nigerians that dont understand that Kareoke from 9 - 12 doesnt mean arrive at 12am all decked out and asking 'why are you guys leaving?' errrrrrr......! It was all good though, they were gorgeous for coming out nontheless :) Ran into the fabulous Aggyness Dyen (who posed with the birthday girl aka me!) at Kareoke AND Rosario Dawson (who is a lot more regular looking than i thought...who knew?) and then the FINE FINE FINE Meagan Goode (it was her sisters birthday too!)...so that was enough to make the night even 10 times more interesting than it already was! Ikechukwu and Sasha also came out for the Guesthouse part of the event, so i have to shout the nigerian celebs out too haha!!

Anyways hopefully a fun time was had by all, (why does there always have to be those crazy 'birthday girl' moments when youre stressing out and wishing you never decided to throw any gig in the first place??? *rolls eyes*)

Anyhoo, finding an apartment in NY is a total BITCH! and therefore I must say i am so relieved to have finally found an apartment with a totally wonderful and the sweetest roomate EVER!!! She is a HE, i.e. yes i am residing with a man, yes my father would have a hernia if he knew, but you know what? living with a dude is a whole lot better than living with a female.. he doesnt care when i have friends over...(and believe me...I HAVE FRIENDS OVER!!)...he takes out the trash and all that...he pops champagne for me on my birthday haha (okay everyone says he has a crush on me but i refuse to believe that part)...and he brings cute friends over (HALLELUJAH!!)... er...I hope a certain someone doesnt read this post :) Ive included some pictures of him and my mini photoshoot that he was gracious enough to shoot LOL...yes did i mention he also serves as our photographer? so...woop woop Henry!!

Anyhoo, I really have to get off the computer now Im a little ashamed, i have some of my classmates here and everytime they come to me to ask about a problem, i see them back away hesitantly as my own photoshop involves a whole bunch of pictures and not so much fashion CAD..(blush)

Ill leave with this absolutely fabulous picture of my girls Nkechi and Nkem (kemerlysramblings.blogspot.com). I missed Nkechis birthday sob sob due to unforseen circumstances (sounds like that came straight from a naija movie) but they were still troopers and showed up at mine looking as gorgeous as always. Aren't they Lover-ly!!!!!!

Later y'all, hope you enjoyed my meaningless garble :)

Landlord! I have a Rant due!

I was Highly Patriotic this independence day weekend...OMG!!...talk about Marking register at almost every event..
To be quite honest, i usually do not like going for Maryland shindigs...Unless...Unless...its that kind of night where ALL your friends want to go...everyone you know is going...There is nothing else to do...so its like....err well!...

Anyhoo but this time i was quite excited to attend the festivities!...I have been dyiiiiiing to hear Nigerian Music in the club...i am sorry...there is nothing as sweet as dancing to " Kini big deal or a Dbanj anthem"...in a spacious area with the music blasting off the walls!!...so i was like woohoo yeaaa!...I had PLANNED to attend just the friday event at Love Niteclub....but somehow i attended like 3 events...whadyaknow!!...Back to Back like a hardcore paRTy rocker too!...very ridiculous....on saturday i was DONE!...but My Older sis who doesnt go to Nigerian events AT ALL...wanted to go for an independence thingy to prove she wasn't a total sellout lol...so i HAD to go along just to support her entry into uncharted territories (gosh i am such a sweet younger sister)...but anyhoo kept on running into the same people...in different outfits!
Had fun on thursday and friday....infact had TOO much fun on friday thanks to the devil's juice! ..I swear My friend called me the next day and i was like, "Oh i am so sad i didnt see you at the party, where were you!!!!!!" and he goes, "dude, we hung out together for like 30 mins, you were even wearing my sunglasses all night!"...i was like....HUHHHHH?????!!!....So i sure did steer clear from alcohol at yesterday's event....I didn't need a repeat performance..No Ma'm!

But Anyhoo i have A RANT based on this weekend.... First of all, GIRLS are very interesting beings...i really feel like women need to just come together and EXHALE.... When a group of women who dont know each other well, chill in the same place at the same time, the air just thickens with suspicion and paranoia!...WHY CANT WE ALL JUST GET ALONG!lol....I personally think i am Nice.......no seriously i really do lol....I have NO problems with anyone...But i am just reserved, if i dont know you i don't go out of my way to jump in front of you and say Hello!!....I just chill, If our eyes connect, ill say Hello...I repeat, i have no problems with anyone...i don't HATE on anyone... I am actually just a chill female!!..No hostility here!....but dude...the amount of hostile eyes i connected with this weekend was quite shocking lol...I mean I think people just ASSUME things about My friends and I because we seem too clique /ish..or so i have heard anyway......You hear stuff like, Oh these girls think they are this and that...blah blah blazi!...so its like automatically people just assume that because we are always together and either being really loud lol or being very quiet, we either are unfriendly or think we iz the shizzz..oh dont get me wrong, i do feel i am the shizz..hahaha.....Assumptions are never facts dudes!...
ANyhow the reason i am going semi personal on here is because of i felt this weekend was interesting....i had quite a number of awkward female crazy moments...but i shall narrow it down to two incidents...First of, there was this female who was really cold to my friend who also happens to be HER friend...and i am talking point blank rude to her .... because she was hanging with my sis and I at a party on friday night!!....now her reason is she thinks i don't like her....because...er...she just thinks so??...or i don't say hi??..or something?!...???...I mean i really dont know this girl at all..To even assume I have formed a decision about whether or not i like her is ludicrous...as far as i know she is an attractive cool girl!!...so why assume i dont like you??....its silly!!....all i am trying to say is...I don't talk about people...because...and to be quite honest....i really dont CARE!!!...i dont go out of my way to be mean to anyone...i just do me...if i walk past you, its because I didn't see you....so stop assuming i purposely expend my energy on stupid girly crap...who cares...hiss. lol...Don't think we are rival groups, don't think we are competing, don't think because you see me giggle to a friend when you enter a room that i am laughing at you, don't think i think i am better than you...ridiculous shit...Its just so tiring having to deal with females and their exhausting imaginations....i get along with confident girls who are above all that crap!....No seriously...
AND secondly..My second wtf moment is with this other group of girls i see about town, I do not know these ladies by names, we have never been introduced...i just have seen them around and thats really about that.. but yet, mutual friends keep telling me shit that these girls talk about my friends and I...and although i usually dont pay attention to crap like that, its quite interesting that somehow somewhere some girls are locked up in an invisible battle with ...quite honestly...themselves...lol.....The hostility permeating the airwaves when we are all in touching distance is hilarious...even outside people who have never met girl group in question and just randomly just stumble onto this imaginary battle zone are like...whats really good?!!...And We just keep giving ourselves quizzical expressions like Are they for real??...Na fight?...lol...But its all good though..everyone is on their own P....let them do them...I just hope to never be jumped by a group of chics because they THINK i am hating on them lol....

AS a closing statement, I really just think females need to start looking at each other as Potential friends, instead of potential rivals...There are girls i meet that i just click with in an hour because they are just open and confident and happy and then there are these other girls who are just so frigging wierd and its just impossible to get past their crazy barriers and preconcieved notions about you....i find myself trying to be extremely down to earth and friendly just to prove to people i am not what you think!!...I am not MRS friend...and i am not going to go out of my way to BEFRIEND anyone...unless you are frigging Beyonce...lol...but just leave your insecurities at the door and realize that you cant make judgements about people you dont know!

This is my rant of the day lol! I have to get bACK TO 177 slides of infectious diseases....i am not kidding...it is a 177 slides...Thanks for listening yall!!....And i hope everyone is staying fabulous!!

"As i Live and Breathe! Its New york New york!!"

So this weekend we FINALLY broke the "I hate New york" merry go round!! WOOHOOIE!

Honestly! New york REALLY sucks when "You don't have an APARTMENT to crash " or are BROKE...There is NOTHING worse than trying to hit the clubs whilst riding the NY subway..Truly and deeply sucks!!....You just look like a group of whores on the train..haha dodging advances from lusty crackheads...its ugly trust me!!....
Anyhoo Thankfully ozzy FINALLY *side eye at ozzy* found an Apartment...and so we came down to Bless it with some good old fashioned jollification!....I mean timing was excellent...right after My pathology AND microbiology exam...so yall know i was dying for a drink!...a night of blatant alcoholism was an absolute MUST...after 100 sleepless nights...i just couldn't wait!!..Oh God I Hope my Mother never reads this Blog!lol...MOMMY I AM SORRY!..its just that FUN RESIDES IN A VODKA BOTTLE! I didn't make the ruless!!!....

Anyhooie, in a nutshell it was reallly fun!! Our girlfriend Niki was around from New Orleans as well as Abby from Boston!...Girls Night out...short dresses and stilettos...awesome!...I usually hate club hopping...usually when i get to zone A, I AM GOOD!...But we decided to be really adventurous and it turned out to be quite awesome...so woohoie!!...and oh on Friday we ended the night hanging with Naeto C, Ikechuckwu and Co who were around to shoot their new videos (which I assisted to style the ladies)...Fun dudes...Fun times!!it was an all round fun time coconut chips!lol.

Girls just wanna have fu -un!!

I was present for the making of Naeto C's new vid (Ringtone)...okay like i am obsessed with that song..."i really like your ringtone...ooooo oooh ooooooooohhhh""...very sexy....but yeah It was so much fun watching a video being made!...There are so MANY details and its so intricate...it took soooooo long...we were there from about 10 AM to 11 pm...There were two different locations...and this was just DAY 1!...all for 3 mins of material!....well let me just confess that a fantasy of mine is to be a Video girl...sigh*....But i am WAYYY to chicken for all that....Like everyone on set just watching you wriggle and shake your goodies....My HIPS ONLY MOVE SO FAR!!...gosh ill turn RED!....and worse of all, You know how wicked Nigerian comments are...talking about "she cant even move her hips" or "where is the Nyaaansssssh"".....lol...umm No thanks...Ill just keep on fantasizing from afar!..

Ringtone! Chalya Styled the Video!

But anyhoo, its Ozzy's 22nd birthday this weekend! We shall be Back in Cut!!...hopefully it can be as sexy, romantic (blush), gorgeous and fun as last weeekenddd!!

*On on another note, Aren't men just the MOST confusing species ever?!!...Who do they want??! The Bitch or the submissive girl...Both?....*rolleyes*...whatever!" lol.

Sayonara sweeties!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One who smokes Cannabis :)

I love NYC...hahaha....its strange cus I swear everytime I have gone to NY this year.....its been like "ohgodnotagain"....hahaha.....

Anyheeeeeeeeewwww.....me and my sweet sister skipped out on thursday last week right after
my microbio exam and decided it was time to end this plague (i guess). So we got on the bus crossing our fingers and hoping that this time in NY it would be more fun than the regular blahhh that I usually experience (i dont know im old). On the way...I finally had time to gather pictures for wat I was going to blog about and I did and it was fun until I fell asleep and proceeded to anger Doreen for the rest of the ride cus my head kept fallin on her shoulder (in my defense I only sleep this ugliness sleep when I havent slept for an entire week..and thats the kind of suffering I was suffering :() Anywayyyy....we got to NY and Oz was not picking up her phone...you see she just moved and like we didnt have an addy to get to...and it was not soo nice out and I was looking kinda nice in my little cute outfit....so of course I wasn't happy....kinda knew at that point that I was going to have a sucky ass NY experience...:( thennnnn TADA! she called back and we were whisked away by a really cool cab driver to Ozzy'z really fab apt (with a cutie as a roomie to add to the sweetness of her life...) Yeah but anyhow...this weekend was like soooo much funnn!!!!! I can't even begin to explain..met loads and loads of cute dudes...lol...we found a nice grp of errrr educated working errr brothas hahahahaha....a first for me......i got romantically entangled...lol....like all of us did...weird but totally awesoooommmmeeeeeee and generally just had fun with my girlieesssssss!!!!!!

*****Oh btw in Soho....some dude stopped to take a pic of me for V magazine...AHHHH!!!!! I love NYY!!!

I was originally going to talk about blazers only but I obv got sidetracked. So lets see....
blazers....hmmm....I started wearing blazers early on in life...lol...Doreen and I had these matching sailor outfits (skirt and blazers or jackets like i used to call them) hers was white..mine was blue...I obv always wanted the white one..heyyy....but yeah Ive totally worn blazers all my life even tho at 1 point I mixed blazers and jackets up...there is a difference oohh and I learnt it the harsh way..but anyhow...I love blazers....didnt always fancy them esp in Lagoon when they wanted to change our uniform and incorporate blazers into the already heat gathering ensemble....(it doesnt make sense for anybody in Africa to wear blazers...or socks or shoes hahahahaha) but yeah blazers are soo cool...I esp love the pic of Kate Moss below...that oversized blazer is soo coooll!!! loveee itt!!!

Arieta and Ashi looking sooooo good with their blazers!!

On my way to NY!! stealing a blazer :)

Oh by the way...I hope you guys are watching Americas next top model....hahahaha.....who are you rooting for?? I love the girl with the red hair (now inky black) and the Angelina Jolie look alike....errr the man chick is cool you know...and as for project runway...I am sooo tired of the retro girl...she thinks she knows everything...she needs to cool down Abeg and Suede needs to shut up about Suede already...hahahahahaha......I guess thats all for now.....

Monday, September 8, 2008


While i was quietly watching Gossip girl .....i was pleasantly SURPRISED by a trailer of Confessions of a shopaholic..and i must say...I AM SO FRIGGING EXCITED!....I am a total CHICK FLICK movie Bufff....and although i must admit i only read the sophie kinsella's first book (for some reason i dont fancy popular lit)....the trailer just blew me away...and to top it all off...its being directed by JERRY BRUCKHEIMER!!(sp?).....Awesome!!.... wait!! ...sigh...oh february i await thee...

RANDOM > I love Blair Waldorf...thats my Bitch! lol....

And OH hell no.....I see I innocently posted a Happy Birthday Beyonce post and I had opinionated people hating on my bee...lol...its all good...She brings the BEST (me) and the worst out in people...thats why SHE IS A STAR!!....lol...But anyHOO I cant wait for Her performance on fashion rocks tommorow.!!!....can't wait for Rihanna's either!! and Justin Timberlake.....

Yay my Bee!

Speaking of Rihanna(And I am a fan)...she looked Gawjus as always At the VMA's....she has a Body Made for clothes....its ridiculous!!!.... BUT BUT BUT her performance Ability/singing live needs some SERIOUS polishing...Its like she is just so mechanical and BLAH on stage...which pisses me off because i feel she could push it so much more....I am always like on the edge of my seat like just going, "This Bitch looks damn good....dance harder...sing harder....sweetie DO SOMETHING!"...but at least i have my fingers crossed for tommorow where she performs a MADONNA Number (vogue i think?)....so Till tommorow!...She is totally on the rocker chic stat and to BE a ROCKER CHIC you have to BE A ROCKER CHIC....Madonna, pink, paramour's head singer, Tina Turner....it has to be HARD, RAW and EDGY....and she Falls FLAT...forcefed movements...weakass mean mugs...uggh...so dissapointed....I know she is young...but please....so is Ciara....so till she can convince me she is the real deal...not just a singer who Is Just on some Management controlled Persona.....i am going to just keep rolling my eyes at the Rihanna's is a Rockstar crap which is sweeping the nation....Her star power cannot only be based on Looks & style!.....sigh...i just expected so much more from her yesterday because I LOVE DISTURBIA....Blah!

Anyhoo....Off to study!!

Veronica Lodge!!

Remember Archie!
Remember Jug head!
Remember Betty!! err Loser much?!
( dude she waited Archie for too damn long -- girl move on?!!)
Remember Reggie !

Sigh*...Remember Youth.....AGE CURSE YOU!!!*shaking fist in the air*

I Found an old copy of Archie lying around my APT and it took me back to my obsessive days of borrowing, stealing and buying Archie comics like it was CRACK!
In the old days i must admit I never knew what was so hot about Archie...with his freckled, red headed ass lol...He had both Veronica AND Betty Panting after him ??!!...wait a second....DUDE... veronica and Betty are so vintage Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston!!..haha.
In the NEW day i still dont know whats so hot about Archie...i mean Reggie ...now we are talking.....Reggie could get it lol...

When i was little, i was a Betty Fan...Go Betty!!...still hoping that the good would trump the evil ....wishing fervently that Betty would finally show Veronica pepper...err yah...Angelina got Brad Pitt at the end of the day...Life doesn't work like that folks!....Sad.

Anyhooey I remember lusting after Veronica's cute wardrobe...she was so trendy with her little minis and cocktail dresses....totally a comic style icon ...

She is so trendy!

So on that note, to Veronica i dedicate my Blog...for being ...One of the best examples of a spoilt, rich, daddy's girl with A fabulous wardrobe full of outrageously expensive designer outfits....she impresses and Oppresses simultaneously (bitch)...without her...We wouldn't have Blair Waldorf ...there would be no sweet sixteens....and we definitely would not know what to be *CLUELESS* about!

* Lifting glass solemnly*

Moving on....

on ANOTHER Veronica Lodge Note...She also did have the sweetest Bangs!! Totally a Bangs Pioneer lol...and with that ....i introduce a little segment called " When Bangs happen to good people"
Which in a nutshell is basically hot ways to wear bangs DEMONSTRATED by really fab girls!


And woohoo all this attention on bangs is of course for a purely selfish reason *blush* - i have bangs! chopped off my hair - I am plenty sure i would regret it someday but for now...I am loving it!!!lol

Like Joan said in her last blog, A black mini is very necessary...I am wearing a H&M mini which i got a MILLION years ago...stretchy...lol...the way i like it....a white tee shirt from H& M..and a Zara Blazer. The belt i also got a million years ago when i was into the rock studded look...i look at it from time to time...and go ...hmm toss??...but somehow it manages to escape my salvation army bag...its a very simple easy to wear outfit!
And sob** My holiday is OVer....sigh*...wish me luck this semester! Its now time to pull out my dental Blue scrubs...BAH* :(
Cranberry Kisses!!!

I'm choking here!!

So my brother is totally obsessed with Nigerian music...lol.... can't blame him...I mean the artists are like soo SICKK !! I confess that I am like Dbanj's greatest fan....hes AMAZING...hahahaha....totally dig him....and their vids....they are really alright....I mean a big step up from err...Mr Showkey's Dyna vid...(no offense) I just can't wait till Nigerian movies start to look as good as the music vids..hahahaha...there shud be no reason to spell Armageddon as get this...AMAGEDOM....I hope its all jokes sha....
Anyway...I went to the African store today (maggi is like crack :) ) and an image scarred me for life...ok for like 5 mins tops.....As an African, I have eaten a lot of strange things...I mean I feel close to cannibal many times...hearts and gizzards, oxtails and now chicken feet???? What the?? Don't get me wrong...I have seen my aunty in Nigeria eat this rare delicacy before but I just thought it was cus she was greedy and wanted to eat the whole damn chicken. I really can't get around the fact that pepaws eat chicken feet.....I mean uve eaten the wings, the thighs, the breast etc...why you gatta eat the feet tho?? like leave some for the trash yo!hahahahhaa....

for ur viewing pleasure!

Errr...yeah...what else is new...school starts tomorrow....DEPRESSING...I have the choice of wearing either caribbean blue or carribean blue or maybe caribbean blue...suckkyy....I just can't believe I have to wear scrubs as I endure this 4 yrs of torture...basically I'm in jail..uniform and all.....I'm definitely choking heree!!!!

On a happier note, I got this Sisley mini from my sister :) and I love it....I know its just a black mini but I love its fit and the fabric! I love black minis cus you can honestly just pair them with a top and ta da! you are ready to go out! You can never go wrong if you have a black mini....trust me I know!!

Top: WALTER, Bottom: Sisley
Ok guys....I'm off....
WAIT!! OMG Nigeria didn't get the gold....the hell??!!!! I was soo pisssed...I didnt watch it tho...Not a big fan of High blood pressure :)....
Okay...im off now!

Chanel 2.55

I guess i am on a roll with timeless fashion pieces!
I consider myself quite the collector of the Chanel 2.55 model. I do driveby's in new york vintage markets & resale stores HOPING to get my hands on a well preserved, very beautifully made, AUTHENTIC, classic Chanel purse .
They mostly all possess the distinct look made popular since 1955 which is the lambskin quilted leather, the gold tone hard ware with a leather and gold
chain shoulder strap and a flap top closure with the Chanel interlocking CC twist lock. Gorgeous.
All credit goes to the late great Coco Chanel of course, who said, and i quote, "Innovation! One cannot be forever innovating. I want to create classics." And create classics she did!

Coco Chanel

I actually sort of despise her lol (God forgive me), for all the times she has made me shell out money for a purse i KNOW i don't need but MUST HAVE. But yes!!!..sometimes you have to weigh the odds - hmm Food..... or Fashion????...tough cookie!
But anyway for those Chanel enthusiasts who want to stock up on some Chanel 2.55 model bags, you have to be aware that many fakes exist! I personally don't like EBay for that reason alone , i prefer hitting up stores and personally checking for authenticity.
You should know that authentic vintage Chanel handbags have interior labels on the inside which are either a gold or silver Chanel stamp, embossed Chanel logo, rectangular leather label with Chanel sign in gold or silver, oval label with embossed Chanel logo, black label with Chanel in white color or black label with vertical lines. If there is no label boo boo its fake!!
You should also check for a Chanel logo on ALL zipper pulls PLUS your Chanel handbag should come with a serial number sticker, a seven or eight digit code which should match the authenticity card that comes with your hand bag.
And lastly { and which i found out the hard way bah:( } When checking the details of vintage Chanel handbags, make sure you’ve taken closer look at the CC logo. The top portion of the right C must overlap the top portion of the left C and the bottom portion of the left C must overlap the bottom portion of the right C!
if you look out for these features, you would be able to Bag (no pun intended) yourself a totally authentic vintage Chanel handbag!!


Chanel bags are truly timeless. They been synonymous with luxury and fashion for over 50 years. The vintage bags are generally cheaper than brand new ones but are still quite pricey and a great investment. You can use it and sell it for almost as much as you paid for it and hand it down to your little girl - Unfortunately for me, i have about 3 older sisters who are rocking my mom's Chanel's with no interest in letting it pass down the food chain - so Joan and I eat last! BAH :( - but anyway my daughters will be set! And would probably covet the purses just as much as my sisters do! So ladies, hold on to your Chanel's! Someday you may be able to sell them for a good amount of money or pass them down to your daughters who may covet them more than you!

I am going to leave on a Chanel note, with some of Coco Chanel's very wise quotes i love and live by!!

So I got a look at the September issue of Vogue and I totally lurrrrrveee the way Keira Knightley looks. Apart from the cover look (which pays homage to Yves Saint Laurent), the feature story shows Miss Knightley looking totally vamp with 30s/40s glam makeup. OMG....she looks like a totally different individual...make up is indeed damn near magical...lol....Apart from that though...the clothes...kill me now..hahahaha.....I want them sooo much...that Yves Saint Laurent nylon dress is the bee's knees!!!I dont know why its not in my closet! Hahahaha....I absolutely love all the outfits and I would sell my sister if they would miraculously appear in my closet...sorry Dee!!!

Anywhoo....seeing these pictures reminded me of last summer when me and my friends were obsessed with Betty Page. We are the greatest fans of anything vintage....yeah if its vintage we will totally eat it up...how totally cliche...hahaaha....but we were at my place watching like a gazillion old movies when we came across this movie not on TCM but on another channel...maybe Lifetime (cus we do watch that a lot too). It was called the Notorious Betty Page. Long story short...she was a Pin Up girl and bondage model...(no it wasn't that kind of movie :) ) It was a fun movie...we saw how someones life could totally change and she was soo innocent...she really didnt know what she was doing....but yeah I'm blabbing....Basically we loved her hair and she inspired us to try more inventive 40s hairstyles. This of course led to dressing like we were in the 40s...accesorizing (sp) with brooches and what nots...and wearing 40s inspired makeup....I can bet ppl who didnt know us got a lil irritated...hahahaa....yeah watever....

PS: As you can see even Baby Ashley got in on the fun!!!

Miss Page

Us girlies!!

In the spirit of reinventing oneself, I leave you with Solange's new vid...Sandcastle Disco....I love how she looks when she dances on top of the soup can...And YES I am totally digging Solange!!!

O' wayfarer, How fair thou art!

You were created in the fifties by a little company called Rayban

and then soooooooared quickly to fame after being perched on the bridge of Holly Golightly's eccentrically fabulous nose in breakfast at Tiffany's!

Since then you have made several appearances in subsequent fashion culture - from the rocking 70s to the Big hair 80s to the 90s...wait!!... (i am not sure you made an appearance in the 90s?!)..hmm...but anyway.....till today! Wayfarer..you are still here today...and although you are not always branded Rayban lol...your wonderful classical shape is seen on the shelves of stores worldwide including pharmacy stores like CVS and rite aid...lol ..You range from $ (for those who don't care about labels) to $$$( for the label whores who need the RAYBAN stamp of authenticity).....So although you are quite Loose : other words to describe you - common, cheap, available, easily obtained - we are convinced of your very intriguing ability to resurface....so wayfarer with that, we fashion lovers believe a pair or ten wouldn't hurt..after all there is nothing better than a product with no expiration date!

Sunglasses, reading glasses, sunglasses!!!
I think ozzy's sunglasses are mad cool(below)...we found them at this vintage store in new york...around 14th street...its a store only full of very wacky vintage sunglasses...bedazzled, excessively excessive sunglasses lol...fun trying em on....
The Marc Jacobs are soooooo sexy! i am obsessed with sunglasses - I know its considered kind of LOCAL lol to wear sunglasses in a club lol but damn i am pushing to make it cool and trust me it has been a BUMPY, insult ridden ride as my friends have never hesitated to finish my life when i make the mistake of donning a pair lol - i think we should stop calling em sunglasses and just call them HATER BLOCKERS - or lets just accept that it has a dual function - to block the sun in the day and to block the hate at night lol... I know i am not convincing anyone lol...but really do me a favor, go out one day...and wear your sunglasses in the club...TRUST ME...it makes you feel slightly invincible...lol...like you feel a lot more free and relaxed because you cant catch anyone's judgemental eye haha.....BUT I am going to move on because i KNOW i am alone in this...TRUST me the rules will relax one day and ill be the first to be on the dance floor in my sunglasses...this PREJUDICE against night sunglassers wearing has got to STOP! :)
I am mad celebrities get a pass. ...lol...
Anyway i included pictures of fashionable reading glasses i saw at H&M (Blue and red plastic frames) and some bright wayfarers sunglasses!

"In times like these, its helpful to remember that there were times like these..."

Today I was going through my old pictures (don't you love doing that? its amazing the things that you find...plenty of cringe-worthy what-was-i-thinking?? moments!!). I came across a few pictures that I thought to share. This night brings back major shits & giggles; a rainy night, couple of cocktails, dress up, a random American Apparel Ad, and trying my hands at being androgynous (channeling my inner Karl - I think I did pretty alright considering that I found all these gems in my wardrobe haha)......

Betsey Johnson travel luggage is a guilty pleasure...Im not one for tacky but there is something grungy and dirty (think gold spikes and black patent leather), yet luxurious that Betsey is able to bring together so seamlessly. The peace sign is so Doreens signature, and Joan playin around with her accessories, loves it!

Our take on American Apparel...speaking of..what do you think of their recent racy ads? Its causing quite a stir...well heres us a little less pornographic. American apparel is a tad overpriced considering that they work with mostly spandex which has to be THE cheapest fabric available.....

Its so hard to wear a lot of colors without being borderline tacky, so a splash of something bright is always good when mixed up with more somber colors, im loving Joans purple tights... Here's a good way to wear purple tights & sequins combined in one outfit without looking remotely loud..

By this time, we actually had the doorman taking our pictures lol!! He wanted in on the fun :). I remember a time when we actually used to leave the house dressed up like this and people would stare us down the street....I think we're getting a little boring guys!!! We once met Will.I.Am at a club in DC (pre-cranberry) and he told us that he loved our outfits, took us to his VIP section and hung out with us all night...but we were sooo young and sooo shy!! Dang if this was now, it would be a completely different story LOL

Anyway, just wanted to share these pictures, of crazy random candid moments in the lives of...

Thursday, August 7, 2008


Hello all! Its been tooooooooo long, and I cant even come up with a plausible reason for ignoring our blog all this time. I guess sometimes, one just has to live and breathe!!! (*insert shy face*)
First of all - happy summer!! Yeah i know its practically over, and for those among us who work, it was hardly a holiday to write home about, save the heat, but I must say summer is simply blissful! I have eaten well, slept well, partied hard, all around been highly self indulgent, and loving every moment of it!
What are your summer must haves? Mine are:

DRESSES!!! I'm proud to say that no pair of jeans or pants of any sort have touched these lovely legs since the month of May...i think summer was all about the dresses! Short, flowery, floaty, bohemian, you name it! I love love love love love dresses...... I remember a time i went through a shorts phase (about 3 summers ago) that resulted in over 20 different pairs of shorts in all shapes colors and sizes (le sigh..)

**Of course the Hater-blockers! We all love the summer sun, but that doesnt mean our eyeballs have to become burning balls of fury..we all need that fancy gear protecting our precious eyes, and of course making us look hella fly in the process...

^^^^**Chapstick!! yes believe it or not, im obsessed not with lipgloss or lipstick but with chapstick!!! My name is Ozzy and I cannot live without my cherry chapstick...true story! I just need my lips moisturized all the time without being sticky especially in the heat..ugh! I hardly even wear lipstick with gloss...i guess im just not a lipgloss person***^^

and this seasons must haves!------> Gladiator sandals! I hate to be a total trendie but I cant help but love gladiators...ive always been a flats/sandals sort of person so this was like icing on my cake...i absolutely fell in love with my regular knock about ones i got from BCBG which are gladiator jellies...loves em! I hope it doesn't get cold till October I still have some gladiator left in me to give!

Movies!! I love summer blockbusters...We totally had a SEX & THE CITY-TI-TI.. night..(dressed up, had cosmos and then saw the movie) and it was welllll worth the wait!!! Iron Man was another killer! Seriously this movie was spectacular, I know the buzz is all about Batman (more like Heath Ledger) right now, but ive never been a Batman fan, so im still 'planning' to see it, but Iron Man totally made my summer, I cant even remember anything else I've seen that I loved even half as much. And of course Mamma Mia, although im obsessed with Abba so the movie could really do no wrong for me! Right now i wait with bated breath for Harry Potter IX : Half blood Prince!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! If you havent already checked it out...Do!!

BEYONCE! I cant get enough of this woman even if I tried, and even though she is conspicuously missing from the scene, I still glow with joy at the little snippets that we starving Stans get once in a while, so enjoy one of my favorite flicks of my beautiful B from the summer!

Aint for everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

..and finally GIRLFRIENDS!!! An all year round must-have...they rock!!!!

Okay, Ive taken my break/ self distraction from sewing.....

Peace, love, Beyonce & Cranberry Kisses!!!!!
