Fashion Show, Fashion Show, FASHION SHOW AT LUNCH!

Last Friday we attended the CAL State Long Beach student fashion show. Miss Emilie was one of the hostess' and planners of the event. There were some pretty crazy outfits, (thigh stur-ups?) and also some pretty sweet stuff. Way to go fashion school! We also met the ladies from the super rad fashion blog GoFugYourself. I highly recommend giving it a gander. These chicks are sharp, witty, and say all the things you want to but shouldn't. Jessica and Heather, I salute you.

Apparently I was suppose to be sitting on stage on the judges couches...but opted for a seat where I could slouch and it wouldn't be seen by hundreds of people. After some much needed beers, me and my pal Natasha, a designer from Chip and Pepper, sat in the VIP and had our own judging going... fabric choices were our main qualm for the evening. So important people!

So apparently Pepper is a superstar so he needs to have his sunglasses on all the time. ha ha
Um Chip are you flippin the bird?

Emilie Finch is the next American Idol!!! or just the host of the fashion show... your votes decide America.

A good time was had by all... except for my super cute bright flashy blue suede peep toe pumps that Pepper dropped a big glob of food on at the after event dinner...may they rest in peace.

Paper People Pool Party (say that 5 times fast)

Last Saturday was the Paper Magazine Beatiful People Issue Party. You would be right in guessing that it took a good portion of my afternoon to figure out what to wear. I settled on a pair of Rockstar Biker Jeans, Express studded Blazer and some sky high Micheal Kors oxford boots. I was originally planning on have a good old fashion night in since I have been battling a cold for the past week....but I'm never one to turn down a good party. So I strapped on my tallest shoes and headed over to the Sunset strip with my pal John. (These fierce heels proved to be a bad idea by the end of night since they ended up getting a lot of miles on them.)
me, John, Algo, and friend

The party was at the Standard in Hollywood which was pretty cool, except for the glass display case with people in it...zoo style. What was up with that?

There were many a pretty faces to be seen, and even prettier clothes. Yes, that is a fanny pack you see in the pic can bring it back Algo! We tried to get the dancing going but there were no bites. So we shmuzed and chatted and drank the best margaritas I have ever had.

The night ended with this guy "accidentally" getting pushed into the pool in his red and white heart boxers and running around with them half way down his tush. um,...beautiful.

Where's Waldo!! Can you find us? My feet suffered through the night but fun was had regardless. I also made off with an innertube...which will be going to the beach with me shortly. Anyone know how to surf with a plastic innertube?

New music for you to nibble on

I have been hunting for some new music lately, seeing as I have exhausted my own collection. I will find artists that I really like, listen to them non stop, then shortly after burn out on them. It's like eating too many sour first they are great...then your mouth starts to hurt.

So here are a few of my recent favorites...that hopefully I will not get sick of too quickly.

Marina and the Diamonds.
-at first I wasn't sure if I liked her voice or the unfantastic lyrics...but then you get sucked in by the catchy pop sound and her crazy arty style. It's like Bjork where it's an all together performance work rather than just music. Her video for "I'm Not A Robot" is pretty dang cool. Body Paint!! YES! Download a free tune of hers by clicking HERE .

-favorite's from the album are definitely "Marching Through Your Head", Kindergarden,....and "I Know", and "How Does It Fell"...and oh crap I like them all!
The Middle East.
This song is lovely, but makes me sad. But I still love it. The vidoe is like an erie kids book. They don't have a bunch of songs out cause they are still newer but I like what they have so far. Let's just hope they don't start doing Christina Aguilera style pop songs... hey it could happen.

Miike Snow.
It's hard to sit still in your desk while listening to the song Animal. Just fyi.

Mmmm j'aime le telepopmusik. C'est tre bien! This band is French and good. They kind of sound like a combo of Beach House, Lykki Li, and Scarlett Johansson. Oh and the song "Smile" is real good.

What is this world coming too?

Walked out to my car this morning and found a homicide crime scene. ....I feel like a sidewalk chalk outline would have added to the overall horror, but unfortunately I wasn't packing.

Who in their right mind would do this to a ChocoTaco?!
