Vegas vs. Jimmy Choo - UNDEFEATED

This weekend is pretty major for 2 reasons : VEGAS and the release of Jimmy Choo’s collection with H&M. I was kinda torn that I wouldn’t be able to cop any of the pieces from the Jimmy Choo collection, but after weighing in the battle between the 2, I would pick Vegas anyways. My reasons below

(in no particular order of importance)

ROUND 1. A roundtrip plane fare to Vegas cost me a little under 2bills. A Jimmy Choo dress would cost me 2bills (or even more) and a stale dress in my closet because I don’t even know where I would where it to.

ROUND 2. I’d be coming back from the club at 5am. Which beats waking up at 5am to wait in that long ass line of crazy beezys trying to wait for their pieces at an H&M store. Let’s add that I would probably go to the Powell St. store in San Francisco, so my ass would be freezing like an Eskimo at 5am.

ROUND 3. I don’t have many friends that are fashion savvy and/or care and appreciate a Jimmy Choo piece as much as I would. But I do have friends that would be down for a trip to Vegas any day!

ROUND 4. What if I don’t even get what I want from the Jimmy Choo collection then I would be pissed and it would probably ruin my whole day. In Vegas there is never a dull moment.

ROUND 5. Do I want to remember: a) how I was soooo close to getting my hands on that hot jumpsuit until some crazy snooty hoe gets to it first or b) how much drunken debauchery moments I will have while in Vegas – THE HANGOVER movie style (ok maybe that’s a lil’ too much)

ROUND 6. Would I feel guiltier that I wasted my paycheck on ummm maybe 2-3 pieces from the collection or a grand fuckintastic time in Vegas…

ROUND 7. It does kinda suck that I won’t be able to wear a Jimmy Choo piece while in Vegas…that would be grand! Wait, I’m sure Vegas has an H&M Store, so if I really, REALLY, ReAlLy wanted to, then I could be in a Jimmy Choo dress.

ROUND 8. I’d rather suffer from an internal intoxicated liver than being bitch scratched, bruised, pushed around, maybe even some hair pulling, earring pulling, confrontational ass woman fighting over that fringed dress.

There you have it – 8 reasons for why I’d rather be in Vegas instead of fighting for Jimmy Choo. There are probably a few more reasons for this battle I have between Vegas and Jimmy Choo…but my mind has trailed off into daydreaming about what I’m getting myself into this weekend. Basically the whole bay area, or let me be more specific – anyone that is Filipino from the bay area – will be migrating to Sin City in support of our man Pacquiao! Can’t f*in wait! See you there.

I’ll just be playing Chester French’s – Jimmy Choos song while I get ready. That will suffice for missing out on this much anticipated release

P.S. I’d rather wait for that shit to go on sale anyways, if there is something left from the collection in my size, then it was definitely meant for me to have!


Make Me Over [BEFORE]

At Salon BaoBao in the Castro getting my hair did. First time I'm giving myself this special treatment. Let's say it's an early birthday present for me. CUT and COLOR but nothing too drastic. Photos to come. I hope I like it (*crossing fingers*)

Photo below is the last evidence of the longest my hair has been. GOODBYE


INTRODUCING...Stella McCartney for GAP Kids

If you didn't know Stella McCartney has teamed up with GapKids for a limited collection. Read below for more deets on how this came about...

Gap is proud to announce the debut of Stella McCartney for GapKids and babyGap.
Stella McCartney creates a collection for boys and girls from 0-6 months to 12 years. The collection features her signature touches – a soft color palette, familiar silhouettes and her unique mix of unexpected pieces, creating looks that stay true to Stella's unique vision, reinterpreted with GapKids' playful, child-like charm, keeping fun and practicality at the forefront of the design intent.

"We're thrilled to have the opportunity to build on successful past collaborations with a world class design talent like Stella," said Marka Hansen, President of Gap brand. "I'm looking forward to offering our GapKids and BabyGap customers her unique interpretation of Gap's casual American aesthetic. Her experience as a parent and designer are sure to delight both kids and parents alike."

Stella McCartney comments, "For years now I've wanted to create a collection for kids, it's something I've often been asked about. I believe that this one off collaboration will be a great way for customers to be able to participate in the Stella McCartney brand. I believe that kids clothing should be more accessibly priced, which is particularly important at the moment given the current climate. It's really exciting for us to do a boys and girls collection for the first time."

The collection will be carried in select GapKids and babyGap stores in the United States and Canada, the UK, France and Ireland, and Japan, as well as online in the US.

If you have a child(ren) like me (in my case - child) then you'd probably want to cop a few pieces from this collection. I'm already thinking about how cute Jeremiah would look in this ensemble

But what I really want is this Balmain inspired marching band jacket for him! TOO CUTE. But it's not available on the GAP site yet...

So if anyone wants to be a kind, generous soul and wants to play dress up with my son, we would totally appreciate it! Thanks :D

This just in...

I just got news from my inbox that the Limited Edition Holiday Collections for Payless are up on their site. I'm so feeling the Christian Siriano collection, not so much the Lela Rose.

Peep what the "FIERCE" shoeprenuer (shoe-entreprenuer, made that up, LOL) has you swooning over. I want them all....

all the photos posted above are from the Christian Siriano Collection via PaylessShoeSource.com

P.S. I have no shame in my Payless shoe game...they're coming up...
Last time they had their BOGO sale I got the Abaete Antoine Bootie with the chains and the Fiona Sasha Ruffle Bootie in purple. And if you have AAA membership you better ask for an additional discount on top of the BOGO sale! Yesssss...I'm all about getting my discounts anyway I can, thank you very much.

Personal side note: because Payless provides you with cheap go-to stylish shoes, you should not expect that these shoes feel like clouds under your feet. You better bet that by the end of your long day you want these babies off your feet immediately!
