NYE: in a blog shell

no, I am not just now recovering from celebrating New Years Eve but am recovering from celebrations + trips to and from Bamaland + MOVING into my new loft. as I haven’t had access to the internet-as usual-I’m just now getting to sharing my night in Athens ringing in 2012! slightly embarrassing that’s its January 11th, but I’m a busy working lady, what can I say :)
NYE is one of my favorite holidays, second to Halloween so I always go BIG and it usually involves music. this year was no exception- four lady friends and I traveled to Athens, GA for the Reptar show at the Georgia Theater. Kat, Sarah and I recently sang backup for one of their songs on the new record so it was extra special fun times! Katherine’s brother is the keyboardist giving us VIP status for the night, I can honestly say this year’s celebration will be HARD TO BEAT!
see for yourself:
started the night with a potluck at a friend of Kat’s-her and her hubby had the cutest decor including that snazzy credenza!
-only in the South can you celebrate a new year and shoot BB guns…
-the boyz in the cool gear is Velveteen Pink-the opening band
(wish i had a full outfit shot)
top: vintage, circle shades: Party City
-the girls and I were responsible for the feather drop at midnight, giving us a stellar view!
-new friends with pretty feathers
-Reptar from afar
-Kat + Rebecca are pumped for 2012! AS AM I!
so there you have it, my exciting NEW YEARS EVE 2012-
thanks to Reptar for the amazing time and opportunity to rock out on stage! YOU GUYZ RULE!
getting internet installed Thursday, hip hip HOORAY!
happy humpday,

holiday party roundup:

don’t know about you but for me november and december have been quite the whirlwind! i’ve hit up several friend’s holiday parties as well as hosted my own all the while finding a new place to live for the next 1-2 years! (PLUSSS dealing with the additional chaos that comes with this time of year..)
with camera in tow, i’ve cataloged all the good times, fabulous outfits and home decor  transformations.


a freelance photo opportunity led me to meeting these lovely ladies with whom i quickly bonded with over our attire:
my outfit includes: a Miss B necklace, Kimchi Blue dress, Nana’s vintage sequin jacket and a vintage purse.
the december edition of Vino + Vajayjayz was held at my lil bungalow and was additionally dubbed as the “last party i’ll ever have here”-
tater was, as usual, the life of the party and decided to play a game of hide-and-seek with party attendee Elizabeth’s vintage skirt-
my room also got a lil holiday swag-
my girlyfriend Kris, celebrated her birthday with a “classy 80s theme” 
above is our interpretation-
(as expected: both dresses are vintage)
a romantic night in with a cute boy led to a ‘cafe-style’ dinner-
wine included!
Eliz and i wearing some vintage button ups at the Thanksgiving Edition of Vino + Vajayjayz

Dinner at Empire State South

my outfit-Tucker for Target top, Target skirt, Steve Madden boots, H&M necklace
’tis the season of BLACK SHEER!
photo taken at the Denim on Denim holiday shindig-not a clue who took this and obviously i was unaware but im TOTALLY matching that pbr can!
outfit includes: vintage top, vintage Liz Claiborne blazer, UO skirt and PBR
hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season-there’s still NYE so if you haven’t enjoyed yourself to the fullest extent in 2011-

another night shooting for Sorry,Darlin i sported my new vintage floral blazer i picked up at a thrift shop for something like $1.99. also wearing one of my favorite new necklaces from Madewell, which is actually my first ever purchase from that store-but most definitely not the last! especially with the news that Alexa Chung will be doing another collaboration for the Fall, very excited about this since i missed her first go around, sad times.
haven’t mentioned this but i’ve cut my hair even shorter, next post will show the new do..had to catch usual!
hope everyone’s week got a good start!

Haute Mess

outfit-top: gifted Forever 21, skirt & purse & earrings: vintage
wore this outfit shooting photos for a new party added to the calender-Haute Mess. i pretty much lived in this vintage skirt for a few days, looks great with any shirt tucked in. posting this reminds me it’s hiding somewhere… but not for long-totally finding and wearing asap!
these are my favorite Lovely Lady shots from the party at King Plow Studios:

have a good FRIDAY!

party outfit FLASHBACK

sick YET AGAIN (perhaps seasonal allergies?) so i’ve been laying low plus entertaining my mom as she came to town for a quick weekend visit. figured i’d post an outfit that i really liked from around 2months ago that i’ve been wanting to share.

i love this vintage skirt! found it at a consignment shop that i worked at in college called Twice as Nice and rarely get around to wearing..don’t ask me why. need to make a conscious effort to wear it in the warmer days ahead with some sandals and a different top.

rest of the outfit details:
top: AA, socks & headband: UO, boots & purse: vintage, ring: Alex & Ani
