DAZED & CONFUSED APRIL ISSUE: GRIMES
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday (christmas, hanukkah, weekday, doomsday, etc.)! I am glad to announce, we have not died. Life on the lovely blue planet earth continues to proliferate and flourish. All is well (score 1 mayans).
As the holiday/gift-giving/gluttony fades away in the warm bokeh christmas lights, we turn a new page on our calendars and prepare to welcome a new year. Before we can jump through into 2013, we mustn’t forget wonderful end of the year sales that just beg to be taken advantage of. If you got a gift that you aren’t fond of, make sure to return it before the value depreciates! (suggestion: do it before new years)
** F.Y.I: the Neiman Marcus x Target Collection is temporarily 50% off! Offer Expires 1/1/2013, and all returns must be made bye 1/5/2013. Meaning, if you have been eye-balling that Marc Jacobs clutch like I have… it’s $34.99. Go for it, all lights green, petal to the metal.
Any ways, here are a few “nifty gifties” I was lucky enough to get this holiday season.
Marc Jacobs for Target Charcoal clutch, BCBG rose gold envelop clutch, Spitfire tortoise retro glasses, Free People floral print socks, Francesca’s Closet bear beanie, Rookie Yearbook One, Scottish Fine Soaps seaweed soap, Essie “Penny Talk”, Chanel Chance Eau Tendre.
comment below your favorite/worst gift of the 2012 holidays!
happy holidays and a merry apocalypse!
I figured I should at least try to make apost before the supposed “end of the world”. I also felt a little guilty for my impromptu holiday hiatus (it just happened…).
Well the temperatures have been dropping all around the country as we enter the peak of holiday gatherings and last minute gift shopping. Just this morning, South Florida woke up to a slightly colder costal breeze! I know I am not any kind of winter-wear expert but here are my 3 different ways to wear warm & patterned crew socks.
for those of you who weren’t aware (you must be new to the internet or live under some cool rock), there is the annual victoria’s secret fashion show on cbs tonight at 10/9c. but for those of you who have a twitter/facebook/tumblr/instagram/pinterest/internet/all of the above, you probably are more than just aware, you must be nauseated by how bombarded your live feed is with insecurities, obsessions, sexualization, and other similar contingents. i know because i am more than 800% done with the whole lot of it.
this is my objective public service announcement, because anyone who enables an environment where people can keep circulating useless banter is public enemy number one– HEY! there is a cool fashion show tonight at 10/9c on CBS featuring the best of the best for the brand you girls love to get your loungewear and undies from, victoria’s secret!
the show was pre-recorded, so here are some sneak peak pictures. (via Zimbio)
also,performances by rihanna & justin bieber (whoahah).
on a final note, and an important one at that: please stop feeling insecure about runway shows. nobody expects you to be like miranda kerr, cara delavigne, or any other model. you will never be “perfect” if you compare yourself to miranda kerr, just like miranda kerr will never be “perfect” trying to be you. if you want to be a debbie-downer and waste all your time (time you will never get back) mopping about the impossible, go right ahead. just do it in the confines of your home, off the internet. there is no need to promote that poisonous mentality that creates cancerous complexes in the minds of young men and women. you were not miranda kerr yesterday, or today, and unfortunately, you won’t be her tomorrow either.
