i've always loved tie dye but in the last year or so, i've been particularly drawn to it. i like that it's splattered paint basically which reminds me of graffiti. i hadn't seen it but when i heard about proenza schouler doing tie dye this season i was intriuged but not THAT intrigued. after all, it's tie dye. not exactly a groundbreaking achievement for fashion in 2010. but i paid a visit to my favorite store opening ceremony and there it was. PS tie dye and my god, it looked amazing. so fresh and excited hanging there in bright bold colors. so pretty and fun. i'm glad i saw it because it makes me even more excited that i got this lil' number from american apparel.
you can't tell but it's actually a leotard or unitard or whatever but with shorts. a onesie, let's say.
my mom gave me this necklace for christmas. i love african inspired jewelry. i can't wait to go there some day.
AA onsie/INC skirt/necklace from Mom/target watch, vintage bangles, tiger eye bracelet
speaking of my sweet mother, the colorful jacket in dry cleaner plastic hanging on the door behind me is a mother's day gift. vintage bill blass, baby. i'll post some pics of her in it. she knows about it already so it won't be a surprise per se but i'll still enjoy giving it to her :)
wow. has it really been two months since i've updated this blog? well, a lot has happened in those months. i was in a great play, went to the UK (london, dublin, glasgow) for a week, then to vegas for a weekend. i've also been working out like a crazy person, submitting myself for more projects, writing and hopefully shooting some pretty cool ideas i have. i've also done some shopping. a LOT of shopping. what else is new, right?

how amazing is this necklace? i can't take it off. thanks Alicia!
while walking around Santee Alley (if you're a New Yorker, Santee Alley is the equivalent to Canal St.) with my mom, i picked up this flowy top and was hoping that I'd find these glasses because of the insane amount of knock-off shit they have down there. i actually saw a girl with them on and asked if she had gotten them there at the Alley. she hadn't but last week while I was doing the rounds in my 'hood, i went into Maya and there they were in all their fake-ass glory. And for $8 i couldn't pass it up.
