"I don't pop molly, I rock Tom Ford"
Actually, I don't pop molly and I can't afford to wear Tom Ford, but regardless, I'm obsessed with this shirt from The Royal Seal. Perfect for a lazy Saturday after a Friday which involved: sketchy parking lots, eating a breakfast wrap in line at The Showbox, and obviously doing the "turn up" arm dance move a million times. Not bad at all.

So upon checking the world wide web this morning I was a tad excited to see Ms.Azalea had dropped a new music video, and to my delight it was Clueless themed. To be honest it was more than delight, it was obsession.
Iggy as Cher Horowitz is the greatest thing since I don't know, just the fact that Iggy looks like a Australian supermodel but raps with pretty much no filter. Beauty but a beast...
But back to Fancy. The styling in this music video is obviously amazing and is giving me some inspiration to maybe go to my schools dance as Cher herself (well if I end up asking someone , since it's Tolo). All I know is I would quite enjoy wearing some matching plaid and white knee high socks. Oh, and a feathered pencil as accessory! As if I would forget that.

OOTD: Ridiculously bright accessories for this grey weather, also comfy shoes because who needs fancy shoes on a day known for its laziness?
Chill vibes on this Sunday.
(gluten free) banana pancakes for breakfast, followed by a run in the rain.
After that a little birthday party errand shopping with my friend, which additionally involved lugging around a giant package of toilet paper at Costco (forced to get this by direction of the mom). Also bought copious amounts of pop rocks and gold coin chocolates. I'm obviously already ready for next weekend.

Also, if you're in need of some new music to listen to (I know I always am) feel free to follow me on Sound-cloud as I usually re post whatever I'm listening to and into at the moment:

Sorry for the break in posting lately, I've been pretty busy and haven't exactly felt the inspiration to type very strongly. However, in my last post I did mention I was planning on attending the Legacy of Seattle Hip Hop event at the MOHAI, and I did indeed make my way there this Saturday (with one of my best friends as company). First of all, I've never been to this museum before this weekend and I have to say its a really interesting place and definitely somewhere I would like to go again just to learn a bit more about Washington history (in a non boring way). The event itself was also really cool because they had a few different performances, plus a showing of the short documentary 50 Next: Seattle Hip Hop Worldwide, which coincidentally had a few second clip of one of my town favorites Brothers from Another (que fangirl moment). Not to mention, since Seattle photographer Avi Loud helped make the film he was there and answered a few questions the audience had, which I thought was a great way to get everyone involved and not just "attending" (plus I'm just a huge fan of his work in general). So if anything like this is happening in the near future I would highly recommend attending and I would also recommend just visiting the MOHAI in general because they have for example the light up Rainier sign and memorabilia from the 1960's Worlds Fair which I think is pretty sweet!
Here are some i-phone pictures from the day:

Sometimes you just need to wear a cape.
Finally had the courage to wear my wool cape (that I found in a Parisian vintage store a few years back) outside. Maybe it was the fact that I didn't have to go to school today and am very tired that I thought, finally, today's the day. Ok. Really it wasn't that dramatic, more of an "I'm freezing, lets try some layers" move. But to make the piece a little less The Devil Wears Prada I did opt for a far less alarming snapback and thigh high socks combo. "A little bit of this and a little bit of that".
I'm sorry, I'm obviously in need of sleep, less caffeine, and should stop listening to the throwback hip hop radio station. However, speaking of hip-hop, I'm hoping to make it to the Seattle hip-hop music exhibit/event at MOHAI next weekend (here's a link: https://www.facebook.com/events/1406408482942884/). Anytime I get to learn more about the local music scene and it's history, I'm in. But in the meantime (how is it only Monday?) I'll stick to obsessing over Soundcloud and my new Timberland lookalikes (next post you will get to meet)....

Who knew a full on sweat suit ensemble could look so good? Gone are the days when sweatpants were merely reserved for the gym and the couch. Nowadays this comfortable article of clothing can be worn out in public in a manner which won't make people give you the look of shame. Truly, fitted sweatpants can be a really good median between hard to move in jeans and very casual shorts. Just remember, if you do want to look put together opt for the more tailored and streamlined options instead of the all too well known Xl lounge pants.
So far the only problem that I've encountered with sweatpants or "joggers" moving from only fitness wear sellers to more fashion oriented stores is a large price increase. Most of these sweatpants range in the 40-60 (and above) dollar range, which is a bit ridiculous considering they sell for about half that price at say Sports Authority. But this has been the same case with most of the so called street style trends that have developed over the years and is fairly unavoidable, obviously companies just want to make money and increase profits.
