Pink Friday


I really was debated against calling this post "Pink Friday" but I'm wearing pink and it seemed oh so appropriate. As you can probably tell, my hair has given way. Blow-out is done. Curls are back for now until I can figure out what I'm going to do next. I want to try out some Jamaican Black Castor Oil and possibly grow my hair out a bit longer; say MBL/Mid-Back Length. 

 I finally got to see How to Dress Well's show at the Echo last Saturday. He was absolutely amazing. Someone in the crowd kept shouting, "R.Kelly!" His vocals are like gold. Very rare that I've witnessed such blissful high notes and falsettos. He played a few songs from his upcoming album which were super wicked and I am such a music fangirl that I'm most likely going to pre-order it. His last album, "Love Remains" was so decadent. I would get it on vinyl if I had a record player.

Next Purchase: Record Player, Projector & Space Ghost Coast to Coast DVDs.

As per usual, I leave you guys with a song. Here's what caught my ears this week: 

Para One- "Every Little Thing" (feat. Irfane and Teki Latex)

Ashish Fall 2012

Blumarine Fall 2012

I usually don't post too much on specific fashion lines but I'm a product of the 90s so naturally these two lines caught my eye. I've known about Ashish for a while but I'm not too familiar with Blumarine. What I do know is their color scheme bathes in my childhood. At one point, my favorite color was, "hologram," thanks to Lisa Frank.

Ying Yang symbols, Smiley Faces and Reflective rainbow hologram-cyber material love rocks my world.

This was my entire world: From Gigapets to Lisa Frank notebooks and Squeezits!

Summer of Film

Someone asked me about film suggestions on tumblr a while ago and I swore I would do a Top 10 list of my all time favorite films. However, let's just live for the moment. Here are a couple of film suggestions for those nights where you just want to stay in and let the air conditioner run with no lights on so your place looks like every music video ever made in the early 2000s. And by that I mean Ginuwine- "So Anxious".

 2046 is Wong Kar Wai's 2004 follow-up film to "In the Mood for Love," which I have yet to see unfortunately. This film is about a writer, Chow who has affairs with several women in a Hong Kong hotel. You can imagine there is an intense amount of unrequited love in this film. Hence, why I'm so intrigued by it. I'm not one for mush-y notebook-esque films. This one was raw in emotion and bewildering in imagery. I really should own it.

Gothic Tropic(al)

 

 
 




Dark rooms and florals. One of those days.

Feeling very much like Washed Out- "Echoes"



Trying to make this blow-out last on my hair as you can see here It's my first summer in L.A. with no school on the horizon. My mind has to get used to having free time. I can pursue what I very well please at this point and that means REALLY exploring L.A. and going to shows, art spaces, hidden nature spots.

I'm amazed at how little I know about L.A. after being here for 3 years. I can however, point anyone in the direction of some bomb food spots.

Deuces.
