Shut Up & Shop

A couple months back G, Brandon and I decided to hit the
Big Apple for some much needed retail therapy.
Of course this meant hitting up Barneys Warehouse Sale!
We had a blast...even though it got scary and downright hostile at times. Nonetheless we fought  for some amazing pieces!
Amazing Miu Miu dress that G picked up

Lovin' my Rag&Bone and Acne trousers!
Rag & Bone coat that Brandun couldn't resist

If you cant beat 'em...join 'em! And thats what we did!
Afterwards we headed to CAFETERIA for lunch which was devine...and vowed to be at the next one!

Hey Baby Ima Rockstar!

For Halloween, a couple of cool kids and I went to a lounge for a costume party... 
I decided to be a total bad ass, a modern day ROCKSTAR!
It might even be a more grunge look than Rock 'n' Roller...ehh, who gives??
I made a cool discovery though: I love black nail polish!!
And FYI, Guitar Hero players don't have S**T on me.... :-p

 Bäst recently debuted Botulism, his first solo show, at  Lazarides’ space in Rathbone Place. For this show, Bäst modified his practice, recreating the repetitive patterns and punchy visual style of his collage work in a series of acrylic paintings.

Love it.
Google him and get to know this Brooklyn based artist.
 Why? Take a look below.


Btw, apologies for the hiatus. We've just got settled into this new phase in our lives.
No excuses. As G said, WE ARE BACK!

We're Baaaaack!

After many failed attempts to meet up (conflicting post-grad schedules), we finally did last night at Ulah Bar in D.C. 
The chicken wings were THE best I ever had!! (Drizzy voice) 
It's a really cute and cozy spot that we'll definitely be going to more often!

 We also attempted to change the blog a bit because the black background was becoming, dated and dead...
It's a bit challenging,  so the site is still under construction, don't be disgusted! lol

The Beauty is in the Idea

Nice quote.
The magazine of choice should be inserted with Harper's Bazaar or Elle instead!
I'm just sayin'...

Exposed: Polyvore Meets Kara Ross NY

Jewelry designer, Kara Ross, allowed me to post a blog entry for her website a few months back...
This was during my prime...
I'm just now getting around to exposing it on Vice...As If (I know, I know, tsk tsk)
Anyway, I decided to do a post on something I love, and that's styling.
This is a fun, quick look for the daytime that can be easily worn as a nighttime look with the girls...cocktails?? YES!
Exotic skin is so in. Note the Python accessories.
Visit Kara Ross New York for more skin!

Whewwww...This Ones a Doozy!

Leopard print.
That incline is something sexy...
Of course I want them!

My Seychelles boots look just like this...only more distressed...
It's time for a new/higher pair!
I've worn those boots to the death! As a matter of fact, I call them my "construction boots."
I'm sooo ready for the fall!

Kara Ross NY Resort 2010 Collection

This post is long overdue (like 3 weeks ago...sorry). 
I've been running around trying to get my life in some kind of order, move out of my apartment and get my MAC Book Pro back on my lap (it was in the repair shop), so you see, I have my reasons...

Now, the good stuff. Kara Ross NY steeze. Translation: style.
I stopped by Kara's showroom to check out the resort 2010 presentation a few weeks ago.
I miss my #teamkararossny family!!

This might be my favorite shoulder bag in the entire handbag collection (don't quote me on that)
There's always some super dupper exclusive bag being made in addition to a collection, so it might not be...
Peep the fresh ostrich #exoticskin #haute! 

Peep my reflection (hey girl!)

On to the jewelry: I just adore this cuff, so fetch! The earrings are cool too.
I would dress this up AND down with simple pieces, and I'd definitely switch up the color palette in my outfit to make it more funky and fun.  Everyone knows less is more and these baubles happen to be MORE already.  Although, I would never wear them together...that would just be too much for moi...
I can't tell or remember if those are hematite or onyx stones, ehh who cares?.. The pieces are beautiful!
(but I'm thinking hematite)...

Pendants are fun, especially these.  
This is a great layering piece...malachite, hematite and rock crystal!
Ooooh la, la, la...let's go dancin'!

Please forgive the manicure :/
This ring reminds me of eyes, my eyes to be exact! lol Only my eyeballs are brown and not a smoky crystal...
I really enjoy this piece.  The hues and style just blend well... Kara's rings are always fun!

To learn more about Kara Ross NY, click here
Check out more of the collection after the break!

Note: Please forgive the photography, I'm so not a professional! :)

What's Love Got to Do With It

Its already been a year since the tragic death of MJ...definitely still feels like it happened yesterday. 
So all this week on BET, its all about the legend. 
Yesterday I happened to catch a snippet of the movie  
The Jacksons: An American Dream
I mean how GREAT is Angela Basset...her portrayal of Katie, Tina,
and lets not forget Stella are just beyond. 

Oh yea...her bod is the BOMB.
And I'm loving these pics btw.

Is it Me or Is it You?

I, like most of the world, am completely fascinated by Lady Gaga.
Well that fascination has turned into an obsession after finding this photo. 
Like I've said before...Gaga for Gaga.
