I am FINALLY moving out of my parents' house (for the second time)! On October 1st, my boyfriend and I will be moving to the beautiful village of Biscayne Park. It's an AMAZING 1920s 2/1 with all wooden floors and a fireplace. I'll take some more photos when we actually move in.

Sadly, this means I will have to stop shopping for a little while. But still totally worth it.

I'm also really excited about my Etsy shop. I have been having more sales than ever lately. It may have taken a year or so, but I think it's finally taking
off. yay.

Happy Labor Day

Not that today was anything special (I never work Mondays), but I had a wonderful time spending the day on Lincoln Road with my boyfriend. We had some delicious pizza, some cold drinks, and I got to go to American Apparel. I was SO proud of myself as I only spent $20 on this hot ass cropped tee. I really hope I'll get to move to Miami soon.

In other slightly related news, I won one of American Apparel's twitter contests and it should be another 2 weeks or so until I receive my winnings, a 10-item grab bag. Guuuuhhhh! I almost died when I found out I won. Now I play the waiting game. Hopefully this will hold me over for a few weeks with my shopping so I can save up some cash to buy this baby. I think it will serve as the centerpiece of my fall wardrobe this year. I hope it will go with black lipstick. :*

What are ya'll looking forward to wearing this fall?

New Obsesson: Dark Lips

I'm really diggin' this look. I was on the Sephora website today browsing some of the darker shades, but I think this is the sort of thing you should try out in person. I'm praying that I can pull it off! I think it will look amazing with a motorcycle jacket and a pair of kick ass boots. :)

Slowly but Surely

I'm trying to re-vamp my Etsy store lately. I made a lot of progress today, but there's still a lot to be done. Too bad I wasted 2 1/2 hours watching Inglourious Basterds, or I could've gotten some more done. Bleh. In my opinion, it was the worst movie he's done. So boring and the jokes were really bad. Maybe I've just grown out of Tarantino films.

Anyways, if you're interested in my store, you can check my new items out here. As I start to clean things out, I'll probably do some giveaways and stuff on here, so keep an eye out. <3

Tweet Tweet

Anybody got twitter? Hit me up.


I haven't updated in ages! I've been super busy at work (I know, the website is absolutely hideous. They'll be changing it soon). I have had my own chair for awhile, but I'm finally starting to get a steady flow of clients, which is super. Speaking of which, if anyone happens to be in the miami area and would like a free cut/blow dry, please let me know and I'll hook it up!! I've also been trying to get my shit together with my Etsy store, but meh.

Also, my boyfriend just got a promotion so we'll be moving to Miami soon!! This is great news, but my ability to shop has been virtually destroyed as I have to save up most of my money so I can buy shitty Ikea furniture. In the mean time, I have been building up my online wishlists so when I do get a little extra cash, I'll be prepared! Lately I've been drooling over Nasty Gal's newest looks as well as TopShops' AW stuff .

I guess that's all for now, I'll definitely be updating more frequently in the future. <3

So busy!

So I'm going to make some time for a real update in the near future (I've been super busy lately), but I just wanted to let everyone know that gilt fuse has launched. It's like gilt groupe, but way cheaper. AMAZING PRICES. Let me know if you need an invite. xo

Horror Girl!!!

I have a feeling that TopShop's newest collection is going to get me into A LOT of trouble. I seriously want to buy all of it...but I think I can settle for this Cropped Vest.

Nordstrom, you dissapoint me

I went to Nordstrom today for the anniversary sale, hoping to go on a fiscally-irresponsible spending spree. Unfortunately, they didn't really have anything that great. I just picked up a pair of these adorable Mint Julip sandals by Poetic License. I guess it's better off that way anyways. :/

These are a few of my favorite things

Just a few of my recent obsessions....

Bed Head's Superstar line for super thick hair (the sell it pretty much everywhere).

High waist jeans.

Studded shoes.

I love feathers and gold chains, so of course I fell in love with this necklace by Norwegian Wood

Denim shirts (a similar one can be found at top shop)

Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment. It works wonders. Srsly.

And lastly, I have been obsessed with making safety pin jewelry. I've finally perfected it to a science and have posted some new designs in my shop.


Just signed up for Haute Look and I am absolutely loving it. My personal favorite at the moment is this great Busby Mini Dress. But I already spent enough money today. Guhhh.

Also, I finally have followers. Yay. Thanks, guys. <3

Two in one day!

I totally had to do two featured sellers today because I found yet another shop to drool over. Panda Loves Kitsch. My personal favorite is the gold lame` leggings.

Be sure to show her shop some love. <3

Etsy Seller

Today I came across LA Native's Etsy shop and fell in love. The prices are a little high, but it's really great stuff. Love the Flying Earth headbands. Be sure to check her out! xo

So I finally went to go buy the Christopher Kane Mandrill shirt two nights ago and I put the wrong billing phone number. The bank freaked out because it was such a large amount and the merchant was in Italy. They temporarily shut down my account do to 'fraudulent activity.' In the meantime, someone else bought the shirt. The very last one. Guhhhh. Now I'm out of luck and have $300 burning a hole in my pocket. Any suggestions for replacement purchases?

Saturday, July 18, 2009

Just for the boyz.

Today's featured seller is robertjoseph. I have actually had experience buying from this seller and he is an icredibly nice guy who sells really well-made, reasonably priced men's bikinis. My boyfriend loves his. :)

Sooo once again I was looking for those elusive leather gloves, when I found them! Not only that, but I found them in an AMAZING online boutique. Nasty Gal. They have tons of great vintage stuff as well as amazing new items. One of my favorite items was this gold zipper bangle. Only $12!! Love it.

I'm in love.

My new short-term goal is to be able to buy this shirt before they're all gone. $351. I think I can do it responsibly in about 2 weeks (if I don't do much other shopping). We'll see how that works out.

It might look familiar because it's very similar to the Gorilla dress made famous by Rihanna. But like a third of the price.

As for a long(er) term goal, I would like to buy myself a Louis bag for Christmas. Right now, I really like this Stephen Sprouse Speedy 30, buuut I might change my mind by then. We'll see.

That's all for now. Just wanted to talk about things I can't buy. xo

Tons of Vintage items just added!

I just added a ton of vintage items to my Etsy store, Recessionista. A lot of fun vintage pumps as well as some other goodies. :)


This week's featured Etsy seller is Hellosweetmarie. I came across her shop when I was looking for a pair of leather gloves (which I STILL haven't found.) Super hot one-of-a-kind, hand sewn clothing.

Found some really cute, really inexpensive vintage sunglasses on Etsy.

This pair can be found at WhitebirdDesign's shop.

This pair of French vintage shades was listed by annemarieaustin.

This pair only looks expensive. You can find them at sickboyvintage's Etsy shop.

While they're not as inexpensive and you may not feel as 'authentic,' American Apparel also has some pretty incredible vintage-styled shades.

Evision Sunglass

Fontana Sunglass

Am Appy gives free shiping on Orders over $75 and you can get %15 off if you sign up or the mailing list. They also have a really good online sale right now.

That's it for now.

Try pairing them with a braided headband like THIS ONE.

Happy 4th of July

Well, the holiday weekend is coming to an end. I don't know if I'm going to be able to get myself out of bed tomorrow to go to work. Yesterday I had a wonderful day at the Fontainebleau pool party. Everyone looked so hot. I was so glad I finally got to wear a bathing suit with stilettos.

I think I'm going to start posting one of my favorite Etsy sellers every week. This week is LIAISON. This shit is absolutely amazing.

I'm hoping to be updating my own store a lot this week. Keep an eye out.

Is it bad...

...that I am a vegetarian and my newest fashion obsession is black leather? It's all I want to buy. With studs and zippers. I started my collection today. Still trying to figure out how I can make some things like this. I think safety pins may be as close as I can get. As for now, I'll just keep an eye out for an amazing leather vest and finger-less gloves.

Still sad.

Just watched the old NBC interview with MJ. He was so tragic. Fucking Oedipus. He was not of this Earth.

Keeping Busy.

Made a blog to help promote my Etsy store, Recessionista Clothing. Check it out and let me know what you think.

As I build up, I will use this blog to share inventory updates as well as special offers. I also have a twitter account.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll update soon!
