Dreaming of Black Milk

photos from Black Milk Clothing online store

i remember window shopping etsy a while ago when I bumped into Black Milk this must have 2 years ago. Now stumbling onto their online store it gives me such pleasure to see independent brands come out of it's shell and on to the mass market. Even after having opened an online store the prices are just the same as before. I love Black Milk clothing, ahhhh the prints are always soooo good. I can't wait to get my hands on a pair of leggings.

All Mixed Up

wearing a beanie from the dollar store, army jacket from AZ goodwill, thrifted Liz Claiborne sweater dress, tights from HUE, plactic backpack from the dollar store, sunnies from Venice Beach, brass shape necklace from AZ Goodwill, thrifted shoes. 

Arizona was good to me. Dinh Dinh took Yuka and I thrifting and I went kinda crazy. Shopping in AZ is pretty amazing not to mention everything was so cheap. I pretty much bought this whole outfit during my stay in Arizona. Lately I'm feeling all the mixed prints in fashion right now. Weather it be tropical wear, floral prints, or even cameo combat wear I love it! It's time to have fun with prints, fabrics and textures. Don't you think?

Magic WWD SS/2012

this past month i attend the world famous Magic Tradeshow the biggest tradeshow in fashion apparel. i got the chance to travel to Las Vegas with the See You Monday dream team. i was so excited to receive the opportunity to create the visual for the See You Monday booth. Visual Merchandising is like a past love for me, i did it professionally for a few years during retail jobs i've had in the past. i don't do it as much today but as soon as i get the chance to do any kind of visual merch i jump at it. i started the visuals a couple days before the opening day of Magic, spray painting gold crowns into bright neon bejeweled crowns, made fun 90's deadstock patches into earrings for the mannequins, and got to shop for some amazing costume jewelery and accessories. special thank you to Vally Rap from Freakcity who totally had most items we needed to complete the Visuals. Annabelle, Jean and myself came up with some brilliant work the day of the set up, like to add the flowers around the base of each display and to add windmills to showcase a spring/summer feeling. All in all the visuals were amazing we only received but the best compliments. We definitely brought some LA flavor to Las Vegas.

Probably the comfiest dress on earth, practically can live in the dress. Thank you Haurna for my lovely dress!!!

Color Head

 received my first package of 2012 and if this is a sneak preview of the things that I'll be purchasing online then I feel like I'm on the right track. About this hat, I actually saw it on a kid in DTLA while walking across the street. I asked "where did you get your hat?" and he replied "Amazon." I thought to myself AMAZON!!!! really!?!? So of course I Google'ed it and low and behold I found the hat. YAY!!!!
i love, love, love this hat!!!!

NYFW-Street Style.

i get just as excited about New York Fashion Week as the next girl but I love to tune into the street style that goes on during NYFW. It's my favorite. This time around I used instagram as an insight of what's going on in New York. A few of my good friends are out in NY covering and working NYFW. I'm so happy and excited to hear stories when they return. For live coverage of NYFW click here and for more street style coverage head over to or Street Peeper or simply hash tag #NYFW on instagram. 

I wish!!!! there was a channel that covered NYFW street style!!!! 

After Work.

it's that time again and to me it seems as though the Magic Tradeshow comes sooner rather than later... I have two ultimate after parties while your stay in Las Vegas. First off See You Monday will be throwing an opening party at the Marquee located in the Cosmopolitan with special guest Redfoo of LMFAO(dj set) please RSVP here to get wristbands...

Hair Done.

spring/summer is quickly approaching and because the seasons are changing so does my hair color. This is my 4th hair color change since Fall/Winter 2011. My color chemist Ann-Marie Hoang is god sent!!!! I first went to Ann-Marie during SS/11 when I had the most amazing idea to ombre my hair according to the sunset colors. Since then I will always go back to Ann-Marie.
