Wax On...

Look what I found in my closet!! Digging around I found these contemporary silk kebayas from home, I'd forgotten how colorful they are!! Inspired by Times Of Glory's post on the beautiful art of batik-making.

Brocade and silk/lace kebaya.
This is what a contemporary kebaya looks like on a person.

I Have Found My Fashion Muse

This chick fucking rocks!!!! I looooove her!!!

(Click for deets)

Are They...

...or aren't they really friends? Rumor has it that they're only friends for the press, while Kelly Osbourne has said that they're totally faking it and yet another rumor is that Posh is only friends with La Lopez to make Katie Holmes jealous!!! Whatever it is, I'm totally fascinated because I loathe Posh and (quite possibly) am fascinated by her at the same time! But she does have good tastes in fashion and ahem, men.

Bff, but the body language says otherwise?

This is hilarious though!!


I got a mention on Sister Wolf's blog....man she cracks me up!

Work Shoes!

I work in a restaurant. Although I don't wait tables, we in the food industry are required to wear slip-resistant shoes which is a no-brainer because our back of the house tends to sometimes be slippery with spilt water, grease, odds and ends etc. In all my years of working in a restaurant I have never come across a cute (more important, cute + cheap) slip-resistant shoes. Most tend to be chunky and bulky and fucking ugly!! Not anymore!! Shoes For Crews came out with these super cute and comfortable ballet-type shoes..and I have them!!! No more fugly shoes for work!! If I could wear my own shoes to work I totally would, but if I slip and fall in them I would not be able to claim worker's comp!! Not that I want to get hurt (knock on wood!)

As usual, the pics are crap cos my camera is crap!

....I feel a cold coming....this morning when I woke up, my left nostril was stuffy and almost drippy (yuck) and the stuffiness has moved to the right nostril as well, combined with an itchy throat! It's actually been a pretty decent day weather-wise too...and as I typing this I'm feeling so warm even though the fan is on overhead....grrrrrr...sneezing like crazy too..I am not going to be sick, I am not going to be sick.. (repeat mantra)....

I was doing some mad speed reading today, and finished Jeffrey Archer's A Prisoner Of Birth in 4, 5 hours...I love him, and the book is one of his best yet, but my favorites are still As The Crow Flies and Not A Penny More, Not A Penny Less, which I've probably read several times. As The Crow Flies would make a brilliant mini-series, like Kane & Abel or The Forsythe Saga (not by Archer).

In other news I found some cute suede-ish boots at...Goodwill!!! $6.99!!! Sweet!! It's lined though, so I have to wait for colder weather to wear it, unfortunately. I'm dripping onto the keyboard..so good night!!!

Shit!! And Aaaaarggghhhh!!!

I've lost all of my style links due to my incompetency at dealing with HTMLs....aaarghhh!!! Operation Recovery commencing!!!!

Edit: Recovery 95% complete....


I have a couple of tv shows that I follow every summer. My favorite is still Hell's Kitchen, but this summer I was attracted to the hit game show Wipeout! airing on ABC, sort of like Fear Factor meets America's Funniest Home Vidoes! Nothing like watching people make fools of themselves, hahaha...the show concluded it's first season with a 1 1/2 hour "best of" episode last night.

Each week 24 contestants go through an obstacle course to win the title of Wipeout! Champion and a $50,000 grand prize. The names of the obstacle courses include "The Sucker Punch", "Big Balls", "The Sweeper", "The Dizzy Dummy" and the "Wipeout Zone". Pretty funny stuff, especially watching the contestants going through the "Big Balls" obstacle...

It's entertaining, mindless tv, and a good time laughing at the misfortunes of others on a Tuesday night (before "Fringe" comes on). Oh yeah, and check out the Youtube I posted...guaranteed LOLS!!!

Hood(ie) Rats

I'm a hoodie and jeans kinda gal, that's how I dress most of the time. I normally don't spend too much on day-to-day hoodies (think F21). Having said that, I wouldn't mind splurging on these Mike & Chris hoodies...and the jackets too...they are gorgeous!!!

The white one is soooo cute...I approve of the built-in neck-warmer..


I can TOTALLY wear this one every day..

Yes, yes and yes.

What Customer Service?

Worst customer service I had in a while. From 1-800-FLOWERS. The guy's name was John. All I needed was a receipt faxed over to the office, I had used a corporate card to send flowers to two colleagues and the idiots at said flower delivery company never sent back any kind of conformation email which could, technically double as a receipt. So here I am, it's the end of the month, trying to reconcile the credit card statement. John (his real name..or not, you never know dealing with people over the phone), sounded bored, was condescending and did not take the time to listen to what I had to say. I've dealt with 1-800-FLOWERS a bunch of times before, and the people at the other end (always women) were always nice so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. But John (whoever you are) SHOULD NOT BE IN CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE THE SKILLS!!!
