If I Ever Feel Better

This song has been in my head all weekend. I've officially been in L.A. for a month and I'm not a prey to any of the vices that appear before me except food. Those In-N-Out burgers are amazingly delicious. But I'm cutting back on the fast food and trying to start cooking again. I might make a casserole soon or tortellini- I got a recipe from a co-worker. I've really been exploring lately. Every Sunday I try to make some time to go down Melrose. This Sunday I went to the Swap meet on Fairfax and Melrose. I met some incredible people and hopefully I'll get to introduce them to you guys soon here! I apologize for the lack of pictures, I left my camera adapter in Houston. I guess I'll have to use my blackberry camera to compensate. Or if anyone in Cali wants to join the lady for an adventure with a Nikon D60 camera please do!

OMG Shoes!

From left to right: (Top) Topshop Aggie Metal Ankle Boot $160, Jeffrey Campbell Buckle Boot $198, Christian Sirano for Payless Slither boot$39.99, (Bottom) Jeffrey Campbell Starbust Boot$174, Bebe Tyra Croco Ankle boot $189, Luichiny Colby Ankle Boot in Plum $87.42-endless.com For the Fall, of course ankle boots are going to be in! Especially if you live in the South or the West Coast. I'm sure they don't have too much of a winter out here so any of these would be grand! I'm really trying to stop myself from buying the Topshop boots. I feel the same way I did when I got my guess maeve. I might settle for the Luichiny Colby boots instead. I could use a little color in my boot wardrobe!

Don't Ask Won't Tell

This shoot was done with my absolute favorite photographer, Heather of "Don't Ask Photography". I've been working with Heather since 2008 and every shoot is chock-full of amazing concepts! The girl is talented. She's originally from New York and interned with the notorious Lithium Picnic! She has an eye for natural light and is a real superstar behind the lens! Feel free to check out more of her work on: ModelMayhem Myspace If you're in the Houston area, Heather is one of the best!

Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?

Sorry guys, I did not intentionally stay away for this long! My laptop power adapter broke to the point of no jiggling could restore it's life. Here's all the great stuff I didn't post! I went to visit the American Apparel factory in downtown L.A. and the place is pretty big. I only stopped in the factory outlet. I'll have to go back for a tour later. I had lunch at this place called Carney's in Studio city. It was basically a train car remodeled into a restaurant. They claimed to have the best Hot Dogs in L.A...maybe just not today. L.A. Drivers are some of the wittiest people out there! I discovered this random picture of myself from the French Horn Rebellion Concert I went to in August with Kalvin I got this dress from Value Village for about 2 bucks or so. Haven't been thrifting in a while and it seems as if I should out here in California because word is the studios donate their old wardrobes to the goodwills and salvation armies! Muy Divertida
