new post on my personal blog:

today we will be shooting a lot of the items on the rack. so excited to get these samples/one of a kind/vintage pieces off my hands. :)

p.s.- in the reflection of the mirror is a sneak peek of the summer collection…hehe

and no i don’t have any pics of/with her. :(

my friend damion invited me to the cfda nomination/honoree ceremony last wednesday at diane von furstenburg’s store. it was amazing to be in the room with diane von furstenburg, the olsen twins, alexander wang, jason wu, vera wang, among others. so glad that i went…but it was not the type of place where you could snap pics of people…heck, i got to speak to diane for about 5 seconds, literally. still, very inspiring.

me with my naKIMuli cut throat cape on and rocking my vintage diane von furstenburg clutch. damion  mentioned to her that is was one of her vintage pieces and she loved it.

damion looking cute in his bow tie.

looking forward to going to many more events like this…

in a little over a month (november 22nd to be exact. make note of that people! hehe), i will be a year older and planning a huge celebration which includes an official grand opening and birthday party (more deets coming soon.) But in addition, I also want the following things listed, in no particular order.

beyonce’s heat perfume. i know, very wtf. lol but a friend of mine gave me a sample + i actually liked it.

a goldfish. in a glass bowl. with a castle.

a hot date with a cute, funny, intelligent guy. really want to go to my fav vegan restaurant, gobo, but any nice restaurant with vegetarian options will do.

another tattoo (or 2).

some cute boots/booties. most likely something by jeffrey campbell.

new glasses. i’ve had these for a few years and i really need to either get prescription in this other pair i have or buy some new ones. (or get laser surgery. lol) but i got my eyes on a tortoise shell pair…
