So a week ago I got involved in a really cool project with my friends in the band Twin Sister and MTV. You may have heard of this semi-new online MTV show Weird Vibes that has an awesome old school MTV feel to it. About a month ago I was enjoying a night of karaoke with these friends and bandmates and I was told of this project they were going to be working on. That they were to host a music video show, and do pretty much anything they wanted in between. I wanted to get involved with ya know, hair and makeup, set up and costumes and stuff. But then Andrea gave me a part as Baby New Year! Mr. Weird Vibes' (Andrea) hot lady friend to bring out guests and serve champagne!
The full episode wont be out until Monday, but for now stop by the Werid Vibes page for a little clip of the talk show that is Twin Sisters brain child. Thanks to everyone involved, the WV team put up an amazing set and really had fun with the thing. I really can't wait, it's quite...WEIRD!
*Andrea's hair done by me, her makeup done by herself. Check out this post from a year ago when I first tried out this awesome hair-do on myself. Includes a link to the tutorial I used.

Today was a wonderful day filled with pretty lady friends and yummy food! Kater from All This Happiness came to the city for a day trip with her Thom Yorke look alike boyfriend John (sorry John if you get that all the time, The likeness is just uncanny!) I met Kater back in September at our NYFW blogger picnic, but it was only a short visit and It left me longing for more of this lady in my life! She's so super sweet and down to earth, and if I say so myself, amazingly beautiful in person.. that porcelain skin.. and the best eyebrows! :)
I met up with her and Anna in the east village for food and drinks at this great place called Mud Cafe. They have a great closed in backyard we sat in, lots of pretty stained glass and lights. Delicious food as well! It was a lovely lunch with some great ladies, I really do love the amazing gals I have gotten to meet through all this blogging, making life long friends here.. or so I hope!
Thanks to Kater's boy John for taking these photos for me, she said he was well used to it and knew what to do, hah! As you can guess, everything is vintage, all thrifted except for the shoes which came from Donnaland. I love this blouse so so much. Thrifted it from a salvation army back on LI a year or more ago. I do believe it is handmade, and lacked buttons or button holes. So I sewed on a few snaps and it was good as new.. or good as used I should say.
Oh! And I dyed my hair too in case ya didn't notice. After my last outfit post I saw just how many colors my hair was.. and decided it was time to fix it up a bit. A bit more red than I intended, really.. but I do like the darker look of it!

A few outfits from the last two weeks. I have been trying to play with separates a bit more, since my go to is usually just a dress. I have way too many skirts to not give them a go once and a while. And as you can see I guess I have been into plaids a bit too.

Today was a lovely day, although it ended with me working a 6pm-2am shift I got home from not too long ago, it started spending the day goofing around williamsburg with my friend Anna. I met her for some food at this place Vanessa's Dumpling house that just opened that location last week. It was my first time going, and it was delicious and I got a butt load of food for under $5 so it was a success. Then we just wandered around and stopped in a few places like Junk and THIS AMAZING PLACE called Brooklyn Charm that sells all the beads and charms and chains and fixin's for making jewelry.. it's really amazing, Anna was the one doing the shopping but I will definitely be gong back when I get more of an idea of what I want to make. And when I have more time as well, like I said I had to be getting to work later on and I could have spent hours in that place.
Today was really mild, which was a nice departure from some of the freezing cold weather we have been having as of late. So all of this coat and scarf nonsense I had going on was really not necessary and I was totally over dressed. I got the coat at this thrift store back on LI I used to go to all the time.When I got this baby I think it was in the spring, all coats 50% off, so it came out to like 4 bucks or something. I love it, and it has the only real fur I own on it. The awesome tapestry bag I got from Kennedy Holmes and it very nicely fits my camera, wallet and phone. The little navy blue cardigan I got from the boys section of another location of the same thrift store back on LI as the coat. The tee and plaid skirt I got last weekend going to the Goodwill Outlet in Long Island City with my good friend Liz, she took me out for some breakfast and rummaging. And the shoes are Aldo, I just got them recently with a gift card I received for xmas. They are my first brand new, as in not owned by anyone else before, clothing item purchase in a long time! haha! I really like them, the heel is the perfect height but I'm also hoping they will hold up the the cold winter New Yrok weather we are just beginning to feel round these parts.

Happy new year everyone! This is my first post of 2012, and I'm already off to a horrible start! Five days into the month and all I have is this little post here with a silly photo. The start of this month marks two years since I started writing on this blog, as well as having my etsy shop. It has been an absolutely amazing journey, learning about and meeting all kinds of great people who I now call friends. I finally moved out of Long Island with my boyfriend and we are happy as ever!
So now lets get down to new years resolutions, first off I need to start blogging more regularly again. I need to get up the courage to start taking outfit photos out on the street or something, because I have really been lacking in the department and I think thats why. Back at our old place I had more privacy to do such things, and have very little indoor light here, so I just need to suck it up and get back in touch with my tripod. Another one as always is to be clean and more tidy in my living space. Hang things back up and having a place for everything to make things more manageable and not let it get overwhelming. I also would like to take up yoga for my posture and crooked spine issues. I also want to get a portfolio together and really try to model professionally. Because I know I have what it takes and it's time to start getting paid for it, cause I'm nearly broke all the time!
Thanks to all the wonderful readers who have stuck around in the last year while I'v been the worst blogger ever. And thanks to all those other bloggers and friends who are a constant inspiration and motivation for me. I'm looking forward to another amazing year!
