Peace, Love and Funnel Cake

Cover bands, fried food, smelly animals, crazy rides and beer for days!  Who doesn't love the fair?!?!?  In all my years of living in LA I have never been to the OC Fair or the LA County fair.  What is wrong with me?  I've been missing out on some good things....well mainly food.  I tried my luck on a few games in hopes of leaving with a giant sock monkey.
As an adult-like-child I thought it would be appropriate to wear this cartoon-ish dress from Lazy Oaf.  The playful rockabilly drawings paired with a subtle version of creepers made me feel like a child again.  Also the smock dress helps cover the food baby that was conceived upon arrival at the fair.

And since this was a first experience for me, it was only natural that I record it and turn it into a vlog (duh!)
If you would like to see all the food that was destroyed and the massiveness of the OC Fair, check out my video here.

20 Years of Sailor Moon

Let it be known to the world that yes I am a Sailor Moon fan. And yes I do have a collection of some Sailor Moon stuff from my childhood. It’s hard to believe that 20 years ago I watched my first Sailor Moon episode and became completely obsessed with it. I remember there were days when I would pretend to be sick so I could stay home and watch a new episode. I think my parents knew I was faking it too but no harm was done.
When I found out that Q-Pop in Little Tokyo was having a 20 year SM anniversary show I had to go. One, to get a print and two to take some photos. The thing that interested me the most were the people that showed up, dressed and prepared to show their love for Sailor Moon.
One of my favorite things about Sailor Moon was the fashion. Hey don’t judge me it was the 90’s! I used to daydream of cute sailor outfits, pleated skirts, giant bows and pigtails. So to all the fans that showed up dressed in their cutest sailor scout uniforms and pleated skirts, thank you for making a girl squeal with happiness!

Wayward Collection II: NOMAD

I’ve been wondering about men’s fashion lately.  How can a guy wear overalls and not look like Huckleberry Finn?  And leather pants?  Yes or no in men’s fashion?

Well Wayward pretty much answered all of my questions, yes you can rock the overalls and yes leather pants is a yes in men's fashion.
The title of the show was “Nomad” and each model walked down the runway with their war painted faces, messy ponytails, pskaufman boots and wayward scarves on.
The collection was very reminiscent of “Easy Rider” mixed with “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome”.
Everything about the collection was eye catching.
Each outfit designer Sam Adegoke sent down the runway was definitely a show stealer at concept fashion week.
