"Oh by god.....Look What the Cat Dragged In"
(Hope you're a Poison Fan so you can finish the song, because it's a good one)
Saturday started out with me looking like a
Lost member of Poison.Seriously, my hair was really really large before I decided it was a bit too over the top-so I tamed it with a quick brushing. I had a bit more eyeliner on than necessary for a Saturday treck thru the 'hood. And, the jacket added a masculine quality that left me looking a bit manly, but girly at the same time--just like Bret Michaels, or Riki, or Bobby, or CC (my fave Poison member by far!) circa 1986.

Oh but this jacket!!!!! $30 from Target....can't beat that. A little secret ladies--check out the boys' section at these stores. Target has these little cheap suits for young boys and believe me, we full grown adult women can fit into it! Not only is it slightly fitted in a good way, it's also cheaper because it's kids' clothing!
And then, after coming home, I shed the jacket.....and what a quick change--no longer am I the lost member of Poison,
instead I've morphed into Lost Poison Groupie
As day turned to night, it was time to figure out what to wear for a girls' night out. Mel and I planned to meet up in Williamsburg. And from there, the night was ours. However, we're not all that crazy, so we were good with going just a few doors down from the subway and staying put all night. So Union Pool it was.
Forgive the cig, my judgement is often impaired after a few drinks, and this is the outcome.
In fact, the outcome is a cigarette and 2am photos outside my house before I retire to bed.
Why don't I do this before I go out when I still look presentable? Oh yes, again impaired judgement, cocktails that make me feel bolder than I really am.

*Black vintage suede boots-Thrift Store
*Black chiffon beaded necklace-Forever 21
*Black stud earrings-Macy's
And one more shot....because I was feeling as if I had all the time in the world to put a crappy background on this. (And now look, it's freakin midnite and I've got work tomorrow. Eeek)
And for Sunday, no outfit pic.....a t-shirt and jeans
does not warrant a photo.
However, I did meet up with Mel again, shopping of course! We had a mission-FIND SHOES! I don't think we succeeded.
And now I will be very boring at the two Fashion Week parties tomorrow and the following night.
Yes, that's right....Fashion Week, Parties, and I'm attending! What what?
Tomorrow is the Independent Fashion Blogger party--should be exciting to meet everyone and get all dressed up super swanky!
And Tuesday is the Chictopia party.
Ooooooh, pictures pictures pictures, and fun fun fun! I should go to bed. There's two parties, two consecutive nights, and 7am wake-up calls for work that I have to deal with.
Sleepy Time it is!
Hope you all had a great weekend too!
