Elizabeth Taylor

I have never really understood the hype around Elizabeth Taylor..... Out of all the stars why was she so special? That being said I cant say she has ever looked more beautiful then she does in this photo, and I love this heroic story about her saving Montgomery Clift

I never thought the day would come when I would purchase cargo pants. Something about these caught my eye. They can be worn so many ways! Didn't hurt that they are only $29.99 on madewell and till Sunday you can get a extra 25% off.

Babe of the week #21

Annie Clark or St Vincent!
I got to see her when she was wearing this actual outfit at Sassquatch Music Festival . It was hot as shit, I dont know how she was not sweating her ass off.
Multi instrumentalist and ex member of the polyphonic spree
Creamy skin and sweet freckles
I really do not care for her music as much as I like looking at her face and wishing I had her hair

St. Vincent - "Marrow"

babe of the week #20

Enon singer, bass, and keyboard player
Toko Yasuda!!!!!!!!!!
She is so cute I just want to eat her! Or have her cook for me. Here is her talking about my favorite subject FOOD

She was also in the Van Pelt (jeesh I need to dig them up) and Blonde Redhead! ( I wonder if her and Kazu were just like to much for each other)

I talked to her once at a show in Detroit about 8 years ago. She was humble and sweet. She also had the cutest light blue green striped shirt on.

This is not the best of her songs, but her eye makeup is amazing...

We are all moved and settled in to the new place!
I keep calling it our "appartment mansion"
It is only 750 square feet, but it is 750 square feet of perfection to me!!!!

Posting from work so sadly no picture spread today. Here are some things around the web!

---- after working my ass off, moving, and paying insane deposits. I broke down and bought myself a new dress. EEEEEEKKKKKKKK may have bought the cardi above as well.

---- I knew I was on to something!!!!!!!!!!! WINO POWER

---- I miss the old hook in the wall phones!! Look at this Gossip Set

---- The very best dry shampoo for the Dirty Girl on the go!

---- I dont know how you keep up with new music, I am guilty of...... dare I admit this? Using Urban Outfitters free playlists. Before you judge, let me mention that I do not drive or have a radio. Which in the past is where I would listen to new things. Oh bug off! Here is Lstn 13 you cant be that cool if your reading my blog ha!
