DEATH to those who BUNGEE (jump)

I went to brunch today, and thought my lack of mimosa carafe was making me hallucinate this image.  There, at the table next to us, was a woman who’s purse strap was missing, and IN IT’S PLACE: A F****** BUNGEE CORD. And not just a regular bungee cord, but one with KNOTS IN IT!!!!At first, I thought, “okay, maybe it’s just an ugly purse”…. but no, the BUNGEE CORD was PURPOSELY FIXED onto the missing strap’s rings! The hooks bent arount the rings as to not detatch…. I asked my friends,” please tell me that’s not the purse’s style”, and they confirmed: NOPE. IT WAS A HOME-MADE REPLACEMENT STRAP.

WHYYYYY???? WHO LIED TO YOU??????  What this lady COULD have done, AND SHOULD HAVE DONE, was just leave the original strap off, AND CARRY IT AS A CLUTCH!! 

And I don’t want to hear: “not everyone can just go out and buy a new purse”, “maybe she can’t afford a new one right now”, etc…. BECAUSE WHERE WE ATE BRUNCH, and the PRICE OF A MEAL, SHE COULD EITHER BUY: 3 BAGS at H&M, 2 BAGS at some Melrose store, or 1 bag @ Zara.

SEE?? BETTER OPTIONS THEN A BUNGEE-CORD-WITH-KNOTS-“wow, I made it myself”-PURSE STRAP. (Ugh…………..the disgust………)

October is BREAST CANCER AWARNESS Month: A Personal Story

So October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and in honor of kicking Breast Cancer in the ASS, I want to share a stylish cancer-kicker someone with you! Her name is Emily, and calls Kansas City home.

She is a fellow member of a fashion site I belong too, www.Lookville.com . She has caught my attention because of her posts with GREAT STYLE, and a POSITIVE ATTITUDE. She told me a little bit about herself, and how learning you have breast cancer is scary. But having the support of loved ones, family, and friends can help u out: not to mention adding accessories like beautiful headscarves to everday outfits! 

How she found out: Yoga. While coming out of a pose, she felt a pain in her chest, close to her cleavage. She felt a lump, but thought it was a knotted up muscle. She continued her yoga. No pain the next few days, and then… pain again.  A month later, she and her husband went to the doctor. They believed it was probably scar tissue from a reduction she had from before. However, after mammograms and sonograms, they found an odd shaped lump, with blood flow… which means tumor. They performed the surgery to take out, and found out that in fact, Emily’s diagnosis was “Triple Negative Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma Stage 1C”. Unfriendly words, thats for sure!

She states that she actually calmed during the chemo phase, and the traumatic part was losing her hair. In her words, “The shaving part was really hard but I kept the champagne going and it was all good 🙂 Thank goodness I have a nicely shaped head;)”

So readers, here is the perfect example of POWER, STYLE, AND PERSEVERANCE. Anyone finding out they have cancer has got to feel an incredible sadness, lack of hope, scaryness, or alone. Well not this lady! She wears some AMAZINGLY CHIC outfits, is ALWAYS POLISHED, and she’s making NO EXCUSE to leave the house feeling unstylish!

Heels, skirts, makup, earrings,… nothing is stopping her from letting me know that Kansas is a Cancer Kickin’ State!  I want to thank Emily for sharing her story with me, and allowing me to help spread positive word about checking yourself, informing yourself, and keeping your spirits UP! Emily has found a way to share her feelings, stories, and updates on her blog: http://stoutspontaneousevolution.blogspot.com/  Feel free to visit her site and follow Emily’s journey!  THANK YOU EMILY!

VMA FASHIONS(?)

We all watched the VMA’s , and it was like the ocean…. it rose, it fell, had waves, was flat…… some people looked like Goddesses, some i hoped would drown. (THATS TO YOU F***** STUPID A*** PIECE OF S*** KANYE.. UGLY A** F***)

So heres a roundup of the good, the bad, and the ugly 🙂

CHER.  REALLY???? She’s 64!!!! and looks like she NEVER AGED! (of course, thank you plastic surgery) BUT DAMN! AMAAAZING!!!!!! Because really, WHO DO YOU KNOW that’s 64, and can ROCK THIS LOOK? CHER CAN!

B.O.B and Haley Williams… if I HEAR THIS F******** song ANYMORE, I’m GOING TO KILL MYSELF! SHUT THE F*** UP ABOUT AIRPLANES AND SHOOTING STARS! And the whole hype about how they never met, recorded separately, and this was their first meeting, AND performance together…WHO THE F*** cares?!?!?!  AND THIS WAS THE RESULT? Her UGLY A** HAIR and CRAP outfit (really??! thats what u choose to wear on live TV??!) and B.O.B’ OUTFIT AND BEHAVIOR? Stupid….. looked like a f***** clown, waving his arms in UGLY A** CLOTHES. BOTH OF YOU: SHUT UP, and GO AWAY!

Taylor Swift…. one word: PERFECT. those EYES!!!! HER HAIR! whoever did her makeup and hair deserves a VMA award!!!!!!! She performed a haunting song, barefoot, commanded that HUGE stage all alone, and OWNED IT. LOVE.

Jared Leto and his band…i like one of his songs, but I just have one observation. He and the guy on right? Boyfriends. Just a hunch, got that vibe. just saying. (the outfits alone are gay!)

Florence + the Machine: great performance. Loved the song from “Eat Pray Love”. Now, I want her CD. She was ethereal, looked heavenly, kept it simple and beautiful. And  her voice ROCKED.

I hate Eminem, but his lyrics have been good lately. I LOVE RIHANNA, but i HATE her red wig. and I hate a ballerina dress with combat boots. Barf. Go back to Futuristic, crazy, cool, all black rockstar 101!

Ke$ha… YOU KNOW WHY SHE WORE A GARBAGE BAG??? BECAUSE SHE KNOWS SHE’S TRASH. i won’t knock someone for making a name for themselves, and making money off it, but YOU LOOK STUPID, YOUR OUTFIT IS A GARBAGE BAG?!?!?! WTF?!?!?!??!?!! GOOOO AWAAAYYY!!!!!! TIK TOK and BLAH BLAH on a DESERTED ISLAND PLEASE! T-R-A-S-H…. and no $ in your name either… stupid…

Nicki Minaj and will.i.am….. ok, she’s CRAZY. But thats why i love her…. she’s the new Lil Kim, rap/hiphop’s new Barbie, so I get it…. its just that THAT outfit, and her BUTT IMPLANTS looked HUUUUUUGGGGEEEEE on TV! But her singing style is infecting, I must say… at least she owns it! Now will.i.am on the other hand… stupid. we know its a costume, we know its a look… but really??!?! you just look stupid. OBVIOUSLY NICKI ASKED FOR A REAL BLACK MAN, YOU KNEW YOU COULDN’T DELIVER CUZ UR SO DOUCHY, SO YOU HAD TO FAKE IT WITH THE FACE PAINT!!! GO TO THE SAME ISLAND I’M SENDING KESHA TOO… FAR AWAY.

JUSTIN BEIBER: WE KNOW USHER IS YOUR MENTOR, BUT ONLY FOR SINGING AND DANCING!! NOT STYLE! REMEMBER: YOUR WHITE, and 16!!!!! DRESS LIKE IT! AND PLEASE, FROM ALL OF AMERICA AND THE WORLD: LOSE THE LESBIAN HAIRCUT.

GAGA in McQueen… yes its a lil cuckoo, BUT HELL YEAH! Its from his FINAL collection, it’s straight off the runway, AND SHE IS HONORING HIM. Plus, u see the shoes she walked in? Lets se any of YOU try that! WELL DONE LADY, WELL DONE…. and speaking of well done, her next outfit is a lil more; shall we say: undercooked.

Yes, thats right: a MEAT DRESS. MEAT STRAPPED TO HER BODY. To me, it looks fake, ( I MEAN- IMAGINE THE SMELL?) But she’s also wearing DIAMONDS!!! SHE DRESSED UP HER MEAT! she’s a controversial person, and you know what? she’s who she is, because of her weird outfits. And hey, when she’s hungry, she has something to nibble! 🙂

LAST, AND DEFINITELY LEAST, IS “DOUCHEBAG KING” K.  THIS IS TO YOU KANYE: YOU THINK UR AN ARTIST, AND YOUR PERFORMANCE WAS ARTISTIC BECAUSE ITS STARK WHITE, YOUR IN RED, YOU’RE SINGING HIP HOP, BUT HAVE BALLET DANCERS. YOU ARE A STUPID A** UGLY PIECE OF S***!  YOU LOOKED LIKE A GAY VERSION OF MR.T. TOO BAD THAT RED WASN’T YOUR BLOOD FROM TAYLOR SWIFT BEATING THE S*** OUT OF YOU. YOU SANG ABOUT “DOUCHEBAGS & A********”… wow, your anthem, what a shocker. YOUR F****** STUPID!

SEX & THE CITY 2: JUST ENJOY IT, DAMMIT!

Do you SEE these women??? THEY ARE HAVING THE TIME OF THIER LIVES!!!! AND SO SHOULD YOU!

I have heard nothing but “crappy reviews”, and “too long”, and “horrible writing” and “bad fashion”….. ENJOY THE F****** MOVIE!!!! IT WAS AMAZING! So it wasn’t the “best” writing, or “Oscar worthy”; and the Fashions were over-the-top….

WHO CARES?!?!? R U that much of a film expert? This film was just how Samantha worded it “This economy has been shitty for the last 2 years, let’s go somewhere RICH”…. and thats just what this was. Decadent fun, Over dramatic, Full of life and Color… IT WAS ESCAPISM TO THE BEST. It was a way for the audience to just get away from the state of our economy, let go of all the troubles at home, and have a good, fun, and crazy fashionable time!

I went opening night, the 2 midnight screenings were sold out, but luckily the theater added an additional showing, so we went to a 12:05am showing. And when we got there, we saw that the theater added times for 12:o7, and 12:10!!! PROOF THAT THIS MOVIE ROCKS! well thank GOD we got our tickets days earlier, because it was PACKED. And not only that, but 9 out of 10 girls were all dressed up in hells, bags, dresses, full on makeup and hair..( AND IT WAS MIDNIGHT ON A WED NIGHT)  Thats what this is all about!

SURE the outfits are extreme… BUT ITS A MOVIE. A 2.5 hour ADVENTURE. With a lot of Laughter, Friendship, Emotion, Tears, Fashion, and Fun…. I went twice in a week because there was SO much to look at, so many LABELS;… it was like being a kid in a candy store (well, a luxury goods store).

So with that said, I’m FINISHED hearing negative reviews… ESCAPE from our REAL WORLD for a couple hours, and HAVE FUN!
