donna, do you like turtles?


Excluding stripes, I only own about a handful and a half of prints. I need to find a happy medium between these crayZola prints and the futuristic warrior I loved at Max Azria. Maybe something like the last two darker looks? I think it'll be cwazy fun.

lunch + wilson + twins

Rice, sesame tako poke, shrimp tempura, salmon pattie, alae poke and ogo poke - all from Tanioka's.

Wilson, our naughty Maltese.

And me and my mom bought the same shirts. Scary!

FYI: tako is octopus, alae is red Hawaiian salt, ogo is a crunchy seaweed and poke is pronounced poh-keh. Now you know. :)

I won't complain (too much) because I do dig the shoulder cutouts and the sheer stuff... for now that is.

Happy Valentine's Day!
My first date of the day is at 7:45 AM with my dentist. He'll make sure my mouth is nice and clean for the rest of the day. ;)

Why do I wantwantwant so much, so often?

Why do I even love fashion? 

Why do you love fashion?

Because I can't wrap my head around this.

It is fucking cool though.
