Ming Wai

Yay! I made it out of the house again this week!
Sorry for being boring lately, I was sick all reading week and feeling like poo, but finally got dressed up last night.
I went and say my friend Jasmine and some other people play an acoustic set at Savoy and then we headed to a club for one of the owner's birthdays. I made some new friends, things are looking up!
(And Thursday was my 50 days raw vegan mark!
I promise a big post dedicated to my experience a-sap!)

10 Things I Hate About You

TAG!
I have been tagged by the amazing LoveMore (have you seen her fashion week posts? now that's dedication!) to list 10 Facts about Myself! Oh good, my favorite subject!

  1. I have to pee all the time. All the time.
  2. I hate people who are sketchy with plans and forget/don't call etc.
  3. I always laugh and talk at the same time and no one can ever understand me!
  4. I spend lots of time thinking about what my cd is going to be called and what name I'm going to perform under and what my 'look' is going to be, even though I've only played one live show...
  5. I will never give birth. If I want to raise a child I will adopt one. There are plenty of children who need homes, why are we making whole new ones? Vanity, I say.
  6. I try to do one bold/outrageous thing every day. To keep myself out of my comfort zone.
  7. I'm actually not a huge Erin Wasson fan...especially because she is way too skinny (not for a model, duh)! With her head/face her body just looks too petite. I think she has more of an 'actress' look (if she gained 15 lbs) than a model look. But I respect the woman, don't get me wrong.
  8. I'm blown away at how some bloggers are able to make incredible connections/relationships with one another when they're half a world a part. This blogosphere thing can still be fairly alienating for me sometimes.
  9. I have to get noticed every where I go. I hate eyes on me, but if they're not I feel like I'm doing something wrong.
  10. I'm actually really funny. Like it's my best quality. And clearly, I know it.

Now I tag Kristin, Fricky, Maria, M, and the infamous Cat-just to see if she'll do it ;)

no way jose!

WOW
The elusive Stompface "tossed" these in my direction! Both of them! Can you believe it?!
I'm flattered, but mostly by the thought.
You see, the designs are HIDEOUS. No way am I putting these on my blog!

You'd think that in the fashion blogosphere we'd have something...well, better than this.
So I'm going to design a new one...or maybe you should since the only thing I have on my computer is microsoft paint. Hah! When I do, I'll repost it and then send it off as I see fit!
But, I also don't deserve these this week. I have been slacking!
I had 178 posts waiting for me on my bloglovin!
Now that's intense.

So, someone design savvy should reinvent the above monstrosities and then let me know...

Beyond The Valley of The Dolls

This is the sexiest movie of all time.
Sex, drugs, and rock n roll swinging 60's style!
The Carrie Nations are a fierce all girl band.
The actress is lip syncing but the music is insane!
Check out their myspace.
I seriously wish this was my life.




PS I've been absent this week! I'll get back to all of you asap. <3.

UFFIE, OF COURSE.

Apparently Uffie has a new look! She looks so amazing.
I didn't recognize her at all until i saw the U----> on Steve's arm.
If you're not familiar, I've posted some of her lyrics below as well as a picture of the "old" Uffster. Then you'll understand why I didn't recognize her.





Me and feadz on a mission, and were starving to fly
its little uffie of course, bout to get buck wild
on this beat that you hear, its the girl that you fear
and if you dont enjoy this shit, you can get outta hear
but yo one day you will see me, breaking out in miami
doin x rated shows, from houston to st louis
yo im that damn crazy brat, and i dont give a fuck
i got my man, my sound, my glass, and im ready to fuck

getting to know you...getting to know more about you...

Okay, first of all, I'm on reading week! I have the whole next week off so lots of good blog posts to come!
Thanks so much for all your comments on my last post! You make me feel special!
I haven't updated my links in a long time, there's even people on my blogroll that I haven't linked yet. So this is my project for the next week. If you have commented on my blog and want to trade links let me know here! Even if we've never talked before, let's share links! I'm always pleasantly surprised when I discover amazing blogs I've never heard of before.

And now for your blog reading pleasure...
Tagged by Frances!
I know you've been dying to learn more about me...

Describe your personal style:
I always have to 'stand out' in some way. I think this stems from my junior high years when I used to dress in OUTRAGEOUS punk/goth garb. I think you can still see this slight punk influence in my look today, it will always be with me!

What are the staples in your wardrobe?
black leggings
blue jeans
black jeans
white tee
cardigan
leather jacket
scarves
booties

What's your signature look?
It has always been skin tight tapered pants...since the age of 14. I used to get made fun of for this, but now...I guess it doesn't appear to be a signature look anymore. Just recently it has become THE BLAZER. And a neutral color palette. Regardless, I always try to exude a 'theme' or evoke an era with my outfits. I never like to be trapped inside one look. I like to give off an under-stated sex kitten vibe whenever possible...

What inspires you?
Fearlessness. Street style more than anything. When I see someone work a basic piece in a whole new way.

Who is your fashion muse?
Those effortlessly chic, haggard but still gorgeous naturally beautiful party girls.

Favorite purchase of all time:
I have a bad habit of buying cheap things, wearing them exclusively for a couple weeks, and then never wearing them again. Right now, my AA disco pants and my H&M moto jacket!

Biggest splurge?
I bought a Betsey Johnson dress for my graduation, I've worn it a few times after as well, so not bad.

What's your beauty routine?
I can't be bothered...anytime I've tried to get into a regular leg shaving nail polishing lotioning foot sloughing brow plucking face mask routine, I'm like, this is so futile!

What jewellery do you never take off?
I rarely wear jewelery! For a while I always had on my nameplate necklace, but I find jewelery annoying and constrictive...does my nose ring count?

What are you wishing for?
The power to overcome myself and pursue my dreams. I am my own worst enemy.

What are your obsessions?
I'm obsessed with music and thrifting adventures.
I am constantly obsessively analyzing everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. And like, 4 things at once. I am so in my head all the time. This is more of a compulsion...

delall


so i tried to do the alice delall look last night. i took a section of hair from the side and pulled it back really tight with a little clear elastic. i don't think i took a generous enough section of hair to create the shaved look but it was fun throwing all of my hair over to one side! do you think this is a no or a go?

bdg jeans.thrifted men's shirt.hm jacket.payless oxford heels.white socks!

this picture is to prove to you that i actually left my house! haha


and my rimmel lipstick in KASBAH

new city

so i actually went out thursday friday AND saturday! (i don't go out often)but it wasn't even that amazing though. oh well, i looooooove getting dressed up and i definitely took advantage of the opportunity. these are from friday, tonight's are coming!
i found this brown fur coat for TEN DOLLARS at value village! can you believe it? if one of those lame vintage stores had snatched it up before me guaranteed it would have gone for 100 bones or something. anyway, i didn't end up wearing the white granny sweater underneath and yes, the glasses came out. but i get lots of compliments on them! do you think I should get my prescription lenses put in them? or are they too impractical? anyway, everything i'm wearing is thrifted except for the aa disco pants (obv).
