I was going through my photos and I got stuck on these. I just love these images and all the memories the pics have. Reminds me of my friend and me listening to good tunes, tripping with the clothes, playing with her masks, my bunny and chatting about politics and shit. It was definitely AMAZING! We never planned any of this, it just came along with the energy and for the love of art. So.... Cheers to that!
I got to admit one of my favorites things in life is an escape to the thrift world! LOVE IT!!!! How could you not? When I'm there I feel like I travel in time with all types of 70's dresses, vintage hats, amazing 50's glasses, the most chic and funky shoes with all types of heals, colors, and patterns to die for.
I usually go to different ones, but when I go to Flamingo plaza, (one of my favorites) I never come back with empty hands or with any dough in my wallet.
Another cool thing about thrifts is the trips there. On your way there you get to see all types of different people. From people selling fruits in a old wooden house to people dressed as the Statue of Liberty to African women dressed up all white from head to toe with tons of necklaces, like some Cuban or Brazilian santeros or children playing ball on the side of the street, etc.
When you get there it feels like paradise! Some friends and family think I'm crazy when they see me with something unusual, they always say it's from the thrift, ah it's Li! LOL! I constantly laugh because it's such a coincidence that at the most unexpected moment the blouse or pant that I'm wearing when I see them is from a thrift!
Believe it or not it's also a good cause to buy at a thrift. It's like you are recycling and there's nothing more sexy than to contribute to our planet ladies and gentlemen!!!!
Hello Kitty fans this is a dream come true! Thanks to cosmetics line MAC they are debuting a Hello Kitty line of cosmetics on February 10th. 'This is a sexy/innocent fashion line' said Jennifer Balbier, Senior Vice president of product development for MAC Worldwide. 'She’s sweet and sexy, slightly edgy and appeals to a wide range of customers."
I totally agree with her and what a smart cookie too eh! Sanrio has been in all women's hearts for decades and this is going to be a huge success. While the 34 years old kitty is assumed to be a cat, she is usually a girl, according to Sanrio. A girl without a mouth! She speaks from the heart, the company has said. ''She may not have a mouth but she's going to sell a lot of lipstick"'
Product prices range from $11 (nail polish) to $38 (eyeshadow quad) for the main Hello Kitty Color Collection to something called "Sheer Mystery Powder" ($90) in a crystallized, silver compact as part of the high-end Hello Kitty Couture line.
Mystery indeed. Since the products will be offered for a limited time only (eight weeks max), if this sounds like something you wanna get in on, the waiting list will go live on Jan. 7.
My dears prepare your soul, body and of course comfy shoes, because Cut Copy is on tour and is gonna be visiting Florida!
What stupendous news for the year 2009 ! To be more specific it's in Orlando March 27, 2009. Tickets are not available yet, but I promise I will keep posting about it. I can feel this is going to be huge, so if I were you I will not make any plans for that night.
Love their last album IN GHOST COLORS, great, great, great! It's the type of CD that you can leave the whole thing on and never get bored. My fav song is FAR AWAY but all the rest are amazing too! All I can say is time for... Lights and Music!!!!
