Professor Sunshine

Front row seats at the Crash Test Dummies yesterday night!

It was amazing, that Ellen is so silly.

I’ll post concert pictures later but for now this will have to do.

So I’ve seen a few of the fall ready-to-wear shows for 2010. Bottega Veneta, Fatima Lopes, The Row, and Todd Lynn (new fav!) And since I’m sure your all sick of my Burberry obsession I’ll skip them (even though it was ah-mazing!). Who really caught my eye this season was Jill Stuart.

This show has convinced me of two things. 1) over the knee boots really are one of the best trends ever. and 2) I’m deeefinitely wearing micro-mini dresses and giant knit scarves for fall. The layering in this show is fantastic.

The make-up and hair for this show was really nice too. I loved the blonde waves with the intense black liner.

Well, I’m off to the starlight parade in Portland.

XOXO,

P.S.

These Prada’s will be mine!

Besaw’s

Went into Portland for some dinner with my mum.

Besaw’s is one of my favorites!

It doesn’t look like a ton from the outside but it’s wonderfully cozy and the food is some of the best i’ve ever had.

I had the pan-seared halibut with tomato ragu, toas point and black pepper aioli. My mother went with a ‘spring sprung’ salad and Besaw’s famous split pea soup. So so good. Apparently besaw’s was one of the first resturants in Portland and has most of it’s original structures including the bar tile.

So remember the Betsey Johnson crab necklace I wanted? Well unfortunately, not even the Betsey Johnson boutique had it in stock. So I ended up with this instead:

I love it but I still want my crab necklace and am considering ordering it online…but when I was snooping around the Betsey website I saw this new one and thought it would look nice layered with the one I’ve already bought.

So you tell me, the one above or below?

I need help. Major.

I’ve had the best week so far.

XOXO,

P.S.

Turns out my boyfriend wears my dream rolex. Suuuper jealous.

On the road again…

After 6 hours on the freeway we’ve finally reach the quaint town of Colfax.

I’ve gotten a lot of questions lately about what my ‘casual wear’ consists of. To be honest it’s super basic. Jean cut-offs and big sweaters from the mens section. Here i’m wearing a nice Abercrombie sweater (mens section rules!), My new Rayban aviators, American eagle cut-offs, Juicy couture charm bracelet and some reef flip-flops we picked up in Coronado…The only place on the island that carried flip-flops and everything’s 30$ it was ridiculous.

My dutch brothers Cocomo Latte (new fav. by farrrrr) got cold while I was driving so when we stopped for some food I bought a pound of assorted gummy things. So for the rest of the trip my mother was feeding me strawberry dinosaurs while I passed semi’s on the freeway. I almost bought a bunch of sugarfree gummy things but a passer-by worker asked if I knew they were sugar-free despite the giant “SUGARLESS” sign on the jar and then proceeded to show me the wall of Gummy things.

Soooo delicious, I’m chomping on a jumbo-shark right now.

So while my mother and I were shopping a while ago we stopped into sephora and saw a bunch of crazy things. Apparently tokidoki makes cosmetics now…Which we found a little odd. Don’t get me wrong their stuff is even more ah-dorable than the Harajuku lovers stuff but going from clothing to make-up is a bit of a shift.  However, the cheeky girl checking us out at the counter told us that the liquid eyeliner rivals urban decays 24/7 cream pencils (I was buying a new one at the time in mildew). So I guess we’ll see.

Sorry these pictures are kind of ‘ishy’ all I had was my iPhone… you get the idea.

Although the idea of paying 10$ for nail files is silly the purse necessities they make are crazy-cute. Keychains, mints, everything you could ever need is there in ah-dorable little packaging.

I’ll be sharing a list of essentials quite soon but for now I’m going to bed.

Happy memorial day weekend everyone!

XOXO,

P.s. the new marc jacobs ads are awesome! My favorite so far, no doubt!

Update

It’s been pretty quiet around here the past week….we’re remodeling the living room and main bathroom.

No TV for Monique, It’s depressing X10. Although I found out I got my Nordstrom Internship!

We went out to grab some cheap sushi yesterday night before I went to yet another party.

Mmmmmmmmm salmon

They have cute things on their front desk…did you know that you could compose your entire kitchen out of hello kitty elements?

Mini fridges, toasters, pancake makers, Ice cube trays…the list goes on an on.

Going shopping today! Suuuper excited…What am I on the look out for specifically?

-Ah-dorable Marc by Marc Jacobs make-up bag

-Suuuper Cute Hair Pin the sunglass girl at Nordies was wearing the other day

-Juicy couture locket

-Some awesome Aviators; RAY to the BAN baby!

-Betsey Johnson tangle necklace. More nauticals; LOVE HER!

-Ultra Cas “I’m on a yacht” topsiders

-The only cute snail on earth by juicy ; )

Also have I mentioned I’m obsessed with  all of the leggings I scored at the crazy AA sale?

No clue why I didn’t jump on this band wagon ages ago. Leggings > Pajamas!

Off to shop, more later.

XOXO,

P.S.

Since we have no TV I’ve been coloring more:

“I am an octopus, draw me some tentacles”

“I am a squid, I also need tentacles…”

My Mom did the purple kitty:

Super cute right? The smallpox bird on the left was my doing…

Sea Legs

Prom and my birthday were yesterday! Had the best time. Between switching limo’s, getting hit on at PF Changs and the chocolate fountain it made for an interesting night. My favorite present is probably the new Schwinn Cruiser. So exited to finally have a bike!

We went into Portland for lunch and stopped at jackpot to look at records.

What I wore today:

Wearing:

American apparel leggings and t-shirt, Lacoste booties, silly ghostie earrings, Nordstrom  BP blazer, Tokidoki bag, Fossil sunnies, Crazy Cocktail ring from the gold lamp.

I went to the crazy american apparel sale at the convention center with my friend Nike the other day. It was madness. People ripping clothes out of other peoples hands, people stripping and tearing open boxes…however, leggings were 8$ rest assured I bought enough for two life times.

We ate at Thai Peacock and said hi to Yo-yo, she’s the best. I swear the people there are like family now.

Mmmmmmmmmmm Curry…

These tights make my legs looks like trout.

In the midst of the prom drama I seem to have misplaced my raybans and unfortunately they don’t seem to be revealing themselves so I’m on the hunt for a new pair.

perhaps the crazy orange map ones?

I hope everyone’s weekend has been going as splendiferous as mine has! Enjoy the sun.

XOXO,

P.S.

Because I can’t help it, I’ll throw in a prom shot or two.

Basket Case

What I wore the other day when I had my Nordstrom interview! I think it went pretty well, I should find something out this week.

wearing:

Vera Wang wedges, Raybans, Kenneth Cole watch and sweater, Lucky Brand jeans, Givenchy pearls, vintage basket (with coach scarf) and iPhone (with Juicy couture case)

My mom spotted this bag in one of our favorite thrift stores, Red light. I immediately thought of the Chanel bags that came out a little while ago.

Red Light is the greatest 80’s thrift store, it’s huuuuuuuuuuge!

It’s filled with chunky sunglasses, lumberjack flannels, crazy fur coats and ridiculous acrylic sweaters.  Bought a great new pair of shoes yesterday courtesy of Guess. I don’t really have any super strappy heels like this aside from the Vera Wang’s I’m wearing….

Had the best Monday to date,

Field trip to Portland art museum tomorrow! Super excited.

XOXO,
