Update on second charity for Daboy

Fortunately, Daboy's parents had enough money to cover all of his expenses and still had a little bit left, which will be put towards the burial. However, my aunt and I collaborated and decided to donate the proceeds to the homeless. The Coalition for the Homeless is located in Washington, D.C., where Daboy spent a lot of his time when he lived in Northern Virginia with all of us. He always wanted to give back to the less fortunate, but couldn't because he himself didn't have a whole lot to give. Daboy would've given the shirt off of his back to another person, though. He was such a great person.

The proceeds will now go towards the Coalition for the Homeless. Each bracelet is $7 and that includes shipping. They will have a set color scheme of brown and tan, the same colors as Daboy's wicker vans. Contact me via if you'd like one. Give me 2 weeks, considering I'm doing 2 charities at once.

Avec l'amour,
Yeye & Daboy

So I've come up with a solid solution, thanks to my friend Aly.

I'm going to stick with this one design because, well, we're all supposed to support the one cause at the end of the day. This isn't about fashion. This isn't about matching or accessorizing. This is about the hope that one day Japan will rise again.

Each bracelet comes with the design of the rising sun and a caption "For Japan." Each bracelet is going to sell for $10. I will keep 20% and donate the rest to the Red Cross. I will also ship anywhere in the world. I will do donations through my paypal account, which will be set up either sometime today or tomorrow. Please keep in mind it takes me a long time to do these bracelets considering that I am making them myself and not starving Ethiopian kids lasting on energy drinks and candy. And please also understand that I do have a crazy schedule with work and school and ninja fighting classes (so serious). So if you order one, please allow up to 2 weeks until you receive your bracelet. Along with the bracelet you'll receive cute little instructions on how to fasten your bracelet to your wrist and once time permits, a sticker

If you are interested in a bracelet, please let me know via email(, formspring, comment, and if you have my personal facebook page then you can message me on there, or even text if you have my number and WE'RE ACTUAL FRIENDS AND NOT MAKE BELIEVE ACQUAINTANCES.

I will come up with some other color schemes too. But for now, here is your first ever tsunami relief bracelet made par moi.

Avec l'amour,

Apparently, I'm a mother for wearing blouses now.

My inspiration for this outfit is from the gnarly Hill Harper. Originally, I wanted to wear a red camisole underneath but, believe it or not as I'm about to say something ridiculously crazy for me, it was too much color going on. Luckily thanks to my underground stylist, he had suggest a neutral color, white or cream. And the floral print skirt? Tropical prints are obviously coming in due to the seasons. Bright, vibrant colors are a good way to catch the essence of summer. Body con skirts have been in for quite a while, especially with the younger generations. They're probably going to be in for a while. Can't quite say I predict it won't be. I went through this little phase where I didn't wear a whole lot of high waist body con skirts just because I was insecure about my legs. But considering the beautiful fucking weather today and how bright this skirt actually is, I figured together it wouldn't be a bad combination at all. Animal print and floral is a hit or miss, depending on the actual floral print, but if you guys haven't picked up on this yet! I don't really give a shit. I feel super feminine and super soft, but I'm still here to conjure up a rebellion against mankind itself. In all seriousness, but not really. Enjoy!

Avec l'amour,

More for sale and j'ai une idée

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not that in tune with the world and its news and yaddiyaddiya. I blame about 95% of that on the fact that I don't have cable. The other 5% is just that I'm too busy. But I do know about the crisis in Japan, and I feel god awful about it. My origin goes way back into many different types of blood, and Japan being one of them. I feel like I shouldn't just sit here and feel sorry for those that are actually living in the torment. I've decided to try this idea and if I have enough support, I will go 100% through with it.

I am going to make, with my own two goddamn hands, rising sun bracelets that also say "for japan" on them. I"m not going to use beads because from past experiences, they don't work very well and it'll take me even longer to make it. Plus, it kind of looks tacky if you want me to be honest. I know all these celebrities are making t-shirts and sweatshirts and even bracelets, but what's kind of sincere about my idea, is that I'll be making them and not poor little Ethiopian kids. I will make the first one today. I'm going to be charging $10 for each bracelet and the proceeds will go to the Red Cross for the tsunami relief. If you are interested, please either leave a comment or email me directly at I hope you guys are as into this as I am.

D'accord. Here are 5 more pieces for sale.

Forever 21 long t-shirt dress with tree graphics. Small. $10

Forever 21 embroidered black sleeveless dress. Small. $14

H&M Sleeveless black romper with ties on the legs. Size 4. $13

H&M blue sleeveless eyelet dress. Size 4. $15

C'est pour mon frère perdu. C'est pour tu. De nous.

Da would've probably thought I was "wildin' out" if he had seen me like this. He knows my style is wild enough. But he never thought I was crazy. He probably would've been one of my top followers. Oh, Daboy. I was doing just fine until yesterday.

Oh the note of fashion, obviously the weather is warming up, which means white on white on white with brown sandals. You think I'm kidding? Walk by my store tomorrow, and if you want something to do today, walk by H&M's windows. You'll get it. Mr. Wang's summer 2011 line is pretty much exactly what I'm talking about. It's not really about the whole "country girl" concept. It's just about the simplicity. Calvin Klein's spring/summer 2011 collection is pure white and/or black dresses with minimal silhouettes and extreme flow and comfort. Francisco Costa has a similar concept.

Now, as for me, I much much much prefer to shop with the tribal prints and the tropical feel. I'm not going to wear white on white because I'm a messy eater and I'll most likely spill something on myself and it'll look ridiculous and I'll get pissed off and kick myself in the face. Can't go wrong with tribal prints. Provides more of an edge and gives you a little more versatility as far as accessories and, so gay to say, but swag as well. The tropical feel, obviously, is coming in faster than we expected. Bikinis with fisherman cable ponchos and gladiators and neon colors and bright striped dresses. Big floppy hats, big floppy hats! Ugh, love those big floppy hats, seriously. With the boho/hippie outlook, big ole' bangles gives you more of an -umph, if that makes sense. Cherry colored lips and big ole' N. Richie sunglasses will do it for you. Seriously. It's always a trip to write on my blog because I have all these pictures in my head that I can't describe to you, so instead, I do the best I can and hopefully it makes sense.

I'm going to enjoy what's left of my day before I surrender myself to an overnight at my store.

Avec l'amour,

Delayed, but still for sale!

Forever 21 fitted black/white striped shirt. Small. Super stretch. $10

Je suis tombée amour avec un magasin stupide

I feel like I should share this all with you guys, because it was THAT fucking horrible.

I had a visual meeting/workshop to attend to from 9am until 4pm in Richmond, VA which is about an hour and a half away from me, if I'm speeding and there's no traffic. Anyways, I had agreed to meet up with my lead visual Dawn at 6:30am so we give ourselves enough time to sit in traffic AND to get lost, because I know myself very fucking well.

1.) I woke up at 6:15am, an hour and 15 minutes later than what I had planned, to find out that my phone had slipped off the top of my couch to my ass fucking crack. Didn't feel it vibrate or hear it ring so I'm already late. I would've just thrown on clothes and gone off, but I didn't want to represent my store looking like shit, even though I left all of my piercings in and my shorts were fucking ridiculously short.

2.) Then as we're driving I notice a sign briefly that said 64 West so I made a right on the fork and totally fucking got lost! Got off at the first exit I could take and had to call for directions, which were wrong! So I had to use the slowest navigation system implanted into my cell phone to get us to our destination. We showed up thankfully only 3 minutes late, while everyone else is still trying to make it to the store on time.

3.) They. Fucking. Split. Me. From my lead visual, who is like my tita in MOST cases, even off the clock!

4.) After mapping out our new concepts we had a miscommunication between my manager and myself, which ultimately led her to making me look like a total fucking selfish idiot in front of my field manager. Pisses me off when people try and make me look stupid so they can earn that extra point. So once again, 20 for my SM. -20 for Yeye.

5.) After leaving the workshop, my SM called and said to drive back and pick up more boxes so we can do our transfer of almost 3000 sale items. Drove back and only got to pick up 2. What. The. Fuck.

6.) On our way back to Virginia Beach, I keep hearing these noises and it got louder and louder and came to find out it was my mother fucking tire. It was so fucking flat due to a crazy industrial looking nail! So I pull over and call my mum mum to handle that, because I'm still a spoiled high maintenance ninja assassin brat.

7.) Figured out I had to wait up to 45 minutes for someone to come out and help me with my tire situation. I had to pee. My tita Dawn took the liberty of taking a flat box and shielding me from the public. How. Fucking. Funny. I'm only announcing this to the world, because it was pretty fucking funny that I'd do something like that. Haven't done that in public since I was 7.

8.) Handyman puts a fucking rinky dink tire back on my car and explains that I'll pretty much die if I go over 50mph. ON FUCKING 64?!?!? You're fucking high. And then has the audacity to say, "Virginia Beach? Oh you guys might be able to make it back home."

9.) Dawn and I didn't want to risk it so we drove out to Williamsburg, about 20 miles east, to the first Walmart Supercenter to try and get my old tire patched up. Come to find out...THE MOTHER FUCKING TIRE SHOP HAD CLOSED 3 MINUTES PRIOR TO OUR GODDAMN ARRIVAL! At this point, I'm praying that God casts a lightning bolt onto my chest.

10.) My phone dies. Devastating enough.

11.) I have to pee again, and we're still 45 miles away going 50 mph on the goddamn interstate. At this point I'm screaming and bouncing up and down to try and distract myself, while my tita takes pictures of semi trucks carrying oversized loads passing me.

12.) Made a bet that we'd arrive back in time to clock out of transit when the sun had completely gone down. Guess what? IT'S PITCH FUCKING BLACK OUTSIDE NOW!

13.) I come home to a dog laying next to a pool of what looks/smells like straight vomit.

Now, I have to plan ahead for my day tomorrow, which consists of moving 2 maximum capacity shops and filling 1 brand new shop with brand new concepts. Oh, and window mannequins! Without hitting overtime. Fuck, to the my life.

Avec l'amour,

The idea of a multi-sponsored ad

Thanks to Mrs. Mutak for the sheer boredome and refreshment of old, yet cheesy, skills derived from high school labels and multimedia electives.

"She likes AA. She likes Joe Boxer. She goes to AA. She does Joe Boxer!!!!"
"Yo, Shery. Shut the fuck up!"

The idea of a spotlight + update

My apologies, seriously. I've been so busy with school and work and trying to get my life back in order after all these chaotic, yet really stupid and unnecessary events, have occurred. I'm sure you all will hear one way or another, but it doesn't even matter now!

I'm going to collaborate more with other stylists in the area and possibly outside of the area. Stay tuned for that!

Going to try the whole spotlight thing. Going to focus right now on American Apparel. Obviously we all knew/know American Apparel for their overpriced basic units of clothing. Their deep cut v-necks and white zippered hoodies and thigh high tube socks and clear colored headbands. Yeah yeah yeah. But seriously, if you look at what they have on their website, there's so much more they have to offer that actually branch out of the whole category of basics.

From eye catching body suits to color block lounge wear to lace printed bondage dresses to fun summer print crop tops! Seriously, maybe it's just me, but the fact that prints are even in there now is, well, beyond cool. I used to never shop American Apparel. Just because I could easily walk into Forever 21 or H&M and grab a basic v-neck t-shirt from $4.50 to $5.00 a pop. But then again, IN THEIR DEFENSE, the quality is pretty bitchin'. And as their website will say, fashionable basics. It's still got a simple kind of aura to it, but it'll do more than the casual.

My favorite things though to purchase from American Apparel are the socks, er, were the socks. Haven't bought any lately. Probably not going to for a while until I feel needy on socks. But they are seriously worth the money. Their crop tops feel fabulous, especially for the fact that I hate wearing bras ha! Oh, and I'm probably always going to be a leotard kind of girl. DA BAM!
