Oh dear...

So I missed my post for's the catch up one...
I didn't actually plan on going anywhere for Black Friday especially eating all those calories...yum TURKEY but Amy called me up to go to Legacy so we did. First stop, Express. I said "Oh I won't buy anything." I came out with an Express bill of "$250." Well worth the 40% before Noon special though. I got myself a nice, black pair of editor pants. A pleather jacket. A red dress that is FIRE. A knit sweater that forms very well to my body. And a few other things that I just cannot remember. So much for buying a crossover bag.  Then we went to Bebe which had nothing special. We ate at Kiku Yama. Was delicious. Probably one of my favorite restaurants especially since they cook the food in front of you. Then Amy dropped me at my mom's salon so I could pick up car and bring it to get it fixed. Firestone was busy so I went to my mom's and got my hair died. Now my hairstyle is changed. Layers. Bangs. Reddish. So anyways, later that night I went to SSP with  my mom and Paulina. Damn there was SO MUCH STUFF I wanted...and I got them. My mom got them for us as a Christmas gift even though all I really want was a Serger (sewing machine). So we got a lot of stuff from Forever 21 and lots of accessories from Wet Seal. I can't wait to wear them. Everything is still in the shopping bags. I need to reorganize my drawers.

I applied. BU Transcript is all set. Payment all set. Need BLS Transcript. Need to do Academic Essay. Need to do portfolio. All before February. My deadline for myself is January 17 before I go back to school. No more games. It's time to get down to business. Wish me luck!

Mendoza "My Darlings, My Queens"

These pictures do not do the collection justice but I can't find pictures anywhere else. I didn't bring my camera because I was too busy working backstage but I wish I had though just to get some behind the scene footage. The flash photography in these photos takes away the dim ambiance and sensuality of this set but I assure you the installation was warm and welcoming, sexually that is.  Sam was inspired by reading a lot of Colette & Rimbaud and decided to make a collection that exerted drama, lust, and sophistication. The dramatic eye makeup (Dani Wagener, Tavi Del La Rosa, Jeannie Vincent, and Lisa Chi) transformed the models into dark, seductive Sirens. Hair was slicked back into chic chignons (Melissa Gullotti & I Soci Salon) and long feathered earrings added a sharp touch to a soft subject (Katee Pugliese). The jewelry (Rebekah Lea) not only accessorized the garments but was also incorporated into a few of the dresses . The set (Mohr & McPherson) completed the looks and if you missed out on this installation, you SERIOUSLY missed out to a great start to Boston Fashion Week.

Instead of saying "Fasten your seat belt, it's the law" why don't signs say "Fasten your seat belt because someone needs you?"
