Salary in a Sweater

Back in July, I did a post about metallic sweaters.
I kept seeing this sweater dress on Tumblr, and on Lea Michele in a Fashion Week video that the cast of Glee was in.
I knew that if I ever found out where to get it, that I'd do anything to own one. The people who know me should know that I would rock this sweater every day. It's so Bubbie Chic.

My prayers were finally answered when I came across a dress that looked just like this sweater dress, by Balmain, later to find out they are from the same collection (F/W 2011). Yeah, about that. The dress with tax, is the price of what I'm assuming my salary is after taxes.

I couldn't, for the life of me find the price of this exact sweater. However, I did find a tank top and mini skirt version. The tank top, $7,795. The mini skirt, $9,800. So for pieces that are a fraction of the dress, thinking about the price of my dream dress could make me vom.

If anyone has one of these laying around, I have like $100 to put towards it.

Sever The Pearls

I've been a HUGE fan of geode rocks since I was a little girl, and became fascinated with geode jewelry about 3 or 4 years ago.
I think I may have a new obsession- sliced pearls.
Today, WWD featured Jordan Alexander's sliced pearl jewelry. Read the article here.
I'll be getting my hands or wrists in one of these as soon as possible- what about you?


Badgley Mischka Fine Jewelry

This is so exciting.
As some of you know, I work on the marketing for this couture brand. I wore them to prom for two consecutive years, and I remain a fan to the point where I know I will be wearing them on my wedding day!
I hope everyone snags themselves some Badgley Mischka jewels, I know I will be!

A Whole Lot of Hotness

After seeing these two on the VS fashion show, I fell in love with them as a couple.
You've gotta admit, they're a mighty fine one.

Loved this editorial of them together.

The Time Is Right

Back in '09, Jon and Azad were going to drop a mixtape. I was so happy with their music, that I didn't understand why Azad decided to keep pushing it back from there on out.

Now I fully understand. A few days ago, Azad released
  "The Time Is Right". (click to download for free)

The production from Jonathan Marquez, Professor O, and David Dann on this tape mixed with Azad's lyrics will put any doubts of this new era of music to rest. 

Azad lets his thoughts and feelings out through his music.. Everything that he voices is organic, explicit, and done with his whole heart. You can physically feel it when you listen.
I know for a fact that each and every fan and blog reader who has heard of Azad can connect to his lyrics in some way, shape, or form. He is infectious. I could and probably will spend the next month tweeting quotes from this mixtape because the flows are ridiculous and I feel a strong amount of what he says, or I simply respect him so much for keeping it so real.

Some Personal Highlights...

"My dad went blind and there's still no cure,
 but he made the victim when he gave me his vision./
And you people wonder why I'm insanely ambitious,
 gotta make a difference every time I approach a track./
I try to close the gap and rap
I know my heart imploded the moment he was diagnosed, in fact/
I use my voice on the mic/
as a way to fill that void in my life."

"All the things that I used to be embarrassed about
are coincidentally all the things that I cherish now./
I used to think that I was whack cause I wasn't black,
So I started blackin' out on every fuckin' track."
-that's just outright sick. 

Santa Monica
If you're from Santa Monica, you will just know that this is our anthem.

The Fire ft. Sofia Enggren
Sofia has a beautiful voice and I'm proud to also call her a close friend of mine for 8 years.
She kills it in this song.

Stained ft. The Bridge
"Liquor sippin slippin i'm fuckin trippin/
Got a half british broad and she's puffin on somethin' wicked."
Who doesn't die for that line?
The Bridge happens to be another friend of mine for a long time. I have seen him work so hard through the years to create masterpieces such as this one. This song just goes hard, and I can honestly say it is one of my all time favorites. Bravo, Yoni. One love

Caught In A Dream ft. The Bridge
"I'm not happy with myself unless I'm being productive,
You might think it's a curse,
But I mother fuckin' love it."
I love surrounding myself with people like this.

Promises ft. Jenilee
I had the pleasure of watching this song come to creation in my living room. It's so real that I feel it hit the pit of my heart every time it plays. A fun fact is that Jon named this song, and Azad wrote separately, and somehow they had the same interpretation of what the song would be about, just by the production. 
 It's a masterpiece. Jenilee kills it on the hook.

I can only express how much I believe in these guys so much. It's up to the rest of you to download the mixtape and vibe to it yourselves. 

4 5 'til I die.
I'm so proud of you all.

I'll Be Around, Azad Right & Jonathan Marquez

Before his extensive project is released, Azad has released another song, 'I'll Be Around'. 
Produced by my boyfriend, Jon, the track brings a fusion of the classic funk everyone adores, with Azad's refreshing vibe, enhancing what we call hip-hop today. 

Azad and Jon taught me what music was a long time ago, and it's an honor to finally be able to share what they contribute to the industry with the world. I believe they're the game changers.

And if you don't think so..well, then we probably shouldn't be friends.

'I'll Be Around' can be downloaded when you click here.


No Apologies, No Regrets

I'm back, just as I always will be.

Metallic Sweaters

Ok, I know the montage thing is new. I have recently started to do it for a work project,
and it's kind of like my writing. I like to make a point in the least amount of words.
Anyway, I have recently gotten really into tumblr, and I have come across metallic sweaters.
The more I see them, the more I am dying for one. 
If anyone knows where to get them, please tell me. Or buy it for me, either option works.

Much love.


Insufficient Funds

Not sure if this makes sense. 
Not sure if it's supposed to. 
The funny thing is, those torn shirts are $150 +.. for what? 
I don't know... but I want one.

Case Closed

Everyone needs to vent once in a while.

I thought to myself, how could I vent? 
Should I use my blog as a diary and let people in on something very personal? Eh.
Do I write a letter? No, because I don't want a response.

And then this morning it came to me.
My words are probably one of my greatest strengths, but in this instance, they could be harsh.
Instead, I will let pictures that I have collected that reminded me of my situation do the talking for me.

Cheers to you,
Cheers to me, 
Cheers to two,
Not to three.

The Present is a Gift

This weekend, I found a dress that I fell in love with.
And then, the one who loves me, bought it.
I just want to stress that I realize I am blessed with an angel.
What I am experiencing, is what every girl deserves, and I just want to put that out there.

This dress was perfect for a hot day around Manhattan and a walk along the Hudson River, and I was really digging the way my new purse meshed with it.

Oh, and I won't lie, I wore it to work today. But tell me, who hasn't worn their Saturday outfit on Monday? 
If you say you haven't, you're lying.

No shame in my game.
Looked great with my Zara flatforms!

Sir Dillon Henry

Four years ago, a lot of people lost an incredible person with an extraordinary soul.
Although I was not as close with Dillon as many others were, he still made his mark on my heart.
He was there for me during a rough time, and his warmth, bear hugs, and most of all, his smile will always remain a distinct memory. 
He's our angel now, and I know he is tearing up Paradise.
I love you Dillon, I'm so grateful to have had you make an appearance in my life.

'Spoilt' is the name of this entry because that is what work Mama calls me.
Why? She thinks Model Jon spoils me.
He does.

Here's proof.

The other day, Jon came to pick me up from work. As a surprise we walked to the Michael by Michael Kors store, where he knew I had been eyeing the Hamilton Tote.
I originally wanted the bigger one, but after seeing it in person, I realized that Jon could wear it and hold me inside of it. So we went with the more realistic size.

I can honestly say that I have never loved a bag more.
I know this is going to last me as long as I desire..
Why? Because it's gorgeous.

Thank you, J. XOXO

Armor Jewelry

I absolutely love body jewelry! About a year ago, I bought two of the bracelets that had chains attached to a ring that goes on your middle finger at Urban Outfitters. 
Jewelry can give any plain outfit spunk. 
Imagine wearing a plain tank top, but having your back draped with jewelry! I think that's nothing short of fun and chic.

If you like what you see, 
Take a look at Armor Jewelry's collection on The Trend Boutique!

Words of the Wise

I find all of these words so inspiring. I only hope they do the same for my readers.
