grace potter and the nocturnals.

 i cannot belive that this friday the 28th of january... i have the unfortunate mishap of missing out on seeing this babe and her band in concert at the wonderballroom.  I am devastated.  This band had become one of my ultimate go to albums of this year.  It is absolutely bluesy sexy full of american grit. That belt ot the lyrics with out a care type vocals.  Kinda a throwback to Janis Joplin.  Raw.  Real sound.

The band looks like they have an absolute blast together.. rockin hard.  Mad performing skills.   And they seem totally authentic.  As though every time you see them together you are getting a legit sneak peek into a day in the life of a rad crew.  People you just crave to be friends with.   They are like that styling hipster crowd that you know must throw the most kickin parties and really love the heck out of eachother.  And they look super fab while doing it!  (Kinda remindin me of my friends/band JUST PEOPLE.. portland rocker.  i will do a post on them later i promise)

Grace!  This girl blows me away.  She is a total fashionista... 100% blog worthy i mean come on look at her.  That hair... it's forever changing from raven to blonde to this signature strawberry color.  Always the full fringe...and oh so long. Sexy sexy sexy.  And those mini dresses especially the sequin ones.  Man she has legs that just go on forever.

If i don;t score tickets for this concert... i may be in tears for over the weekend.

Check these videos for some major inspiration:

i got what i deserve.

Some nights out are just fully unexpected and amazing!  Let me rephrase that: Unforgetable.

Oh ladies how i love thee.  Random phone call last minute last thursday to see what i was up to... led to a night out at Sassy's for a birthday party extraordinaire.  Thank you thank you for this invite.  Beautiful people. Beautiful dancing. Sexiness.  Full on Portland vibe going on there and i loved it.  Tattoos.  Beanies.  White hot shoes.  Black leggings.  Everyone i met in town from Arizona absolutely rocked as well.  Not to mention my favorite new chick of them all... oh Natalie Das.  (pictured above)  pro skater / producer / photographer this girl is IT.  Incredible!

3:30 am rolled around all too soon...which meant a ride back to the west side for more fun back at Alysha's apartment.  Thankfully cuz this night..we just didn't want it to end.  Random trips to the vending machine. Elevator pictures.  And the three of us cuddled in lysh's bed for the night.  Complete.  What a ride.


if i could have a cat this would be him.

.... he looks like a miniature leopard.  I am in love.  and i am not even a cat person...not in the slightest.  Too bad my apartment doesn't allow pets.  This little guy could have made me a convert or at the very least a happy little girl.  Is it wrong to want a pet because his fur is so 'fashionable'?


lita lita lita lita lita.

i did it!  ordered my taupe suede lita's.  Jeffrey Campbell i heart you!  These baby's are so hard to come by and so when i found them in stock at Lori's Shoes (and in my size) i had to buy buy buy.  Immediately.  There was no time to waste.  Seriously...though ask me a few months ago and it may have been a different story as i didn't quite have my mind made up on this trend when i first saw the shoes popping up on some of my ever so cherished fashion blogs.  bleachblack. somethingnavy. fashiontoast.

Now... i come to realize the reason for my confusion turned obsession.  These shoes are probably one of the hardest trends to pull off.  Second only to the skin tight low rise cigarette jean.  Case and point... ONLY purchase to wear if you were blessed with long skinny victoria's secret model gams.  Unfortunately the silhouette of this shoe has a way of accentuating flaws.  The chunky two inch sole for some reason makes short legs appear shortened and hitting at just above ankle somehow widens an ankle that wasn't built like a toothpick.  Now don't take my word for it... but I think this was the reason for my folly.  I do everything i can to avoid desexifying my legs. (short skirts. mini dresses. knickerbockers. skinny jeans. sky high heels)  And i mistake this treacherous would be a $160 mistake.  Not affordable on a recessionista budget.

The more I see these shoes i am obsessed...and it is  growing.  These shoes especially in the taupe suede are an absolute must have addition to my closet.  This shoe will take me from winter to summer back to fall again.  Cozy neutral cold weather boot can easily become a lightweight nude limb lengthening ankle boot paired with short shorts and a flowy silk top.  These shoes can't get here soon enough.  The anticipation is killing me!
