I am so excited about this, I just can’t even begin.
The lovely Joanna from www.maqaroon.com created this awesome manga portrait of me in all the WTF accouterments.
Obnoxiously bright headband with large rosettes!
Many chunky bangles in neon colors!
Demented owl necklace!
Leopard print fringe body suit!!
This is damn masterpiece.

Forever 21, WTF?
Living in Los Angeles amongst both the rich and the famous, I am presented almost daily with a double edged sword of delights and disappointments.
We have amazing restaurants with amazing food that are sometimes so amazing you have to wait a fortnight before you can actually eat in them.
The streets are littered with beautiful women and the odds of seeing an actual celebrity can go from slim to none to almost unavoidable with the change of a zip code.
And, most importantly, we have every shop you could ever want and every shop you could never afford to actually shop in.
One of those shops just happens to be one of my favorites.
One of those shops is Chanel.
Even though I love the crisp, clean lines and posh quilted loveliness this super luxe brand has to offer, I’m in no position to pay super luxe prices.
However, through the wonders of Forever 21′s copy cattish homage items to Chanel, we can all indulge our silly desire to look like skeleton puppet genius Karl Lagerfeld’s dream girl.
Leatherette Rose Bag: $19.00
If you can’t afford Rodeo Drive, why not just take a stroll down Front Street?
Take a walk with me, ladies. It’s Wonderful Wednesday. Continue reading
I’m the kind of gal who obsesses over details, and just like any other borderline debilitating disorder, this has been and remains to be both a gift and a curse. Now, there’s some details I just can’t abide by (rosettes, I’m snarling at you) and you’ve all read me rail against unnecessary ruffles and fringe. But sometimes bad details can make for great style.
Rosette Mesh Dress: $22.80
Get ready to sweat the small stuff.
It’s Wonderful Wednesday. Continue reading
So many things going wrong here.
Let’s just focus on one: rosettes, AKA the fastest way to stop a sane person from purchasing any clothing item. Listen, Forever 21, NO ONE LIKES ROSETTES.
And even if they did, after one wash they just turn into droopy turds dangling from the garment in a most unsavory and unintended fashion.
And don’t even get me started on jumpers, let alone those of the single shouldered variety. Not only do you have to go through the bizarre exercise of getting damn near completely nude to take a piss, it’s also just ugly.
