Modcloth is one of the cutest sites I know.  Heavily inspired by vintage themes, Modcloth should be your first stop if you're looking for something super girly and one of a kind.  I have yet to order anything 'cause the clothing appears to be slim cut and I have double wide butt but it's still one of my favorite places to window shop.  :D

Items sell out notoriously quickly so if any of these caught you eye head over there now!

Familiar with  Tell me about your experience!

In real life, blood suckers are just gross. Oh yeah, and creepy.

Guess where I'm writing to you from? ?? Oh alright, I'll tell you.  I'm writing this from home!  My apartment!  My tiny, Ikea furnished bedroom!  I have internet!  ::shakes booty::  So I took a quick break from performing illegal activities to write a post.  'Cause I care about y'all.  

But really, this is the post before the post (Jersey Shore reference.  Anyone?  Anyone?) because I really want to write about the awesome time I had in VA but I honestly can't remember all of it.  It was that kind of weekend.  SO, take this instead.  :)
So I don’t know if you’ve heard but NYC has been taken over by bedbugs.  True story.  It’s like the number one searched term every other day.  People are freaking out, ya’ll.  Like Justin Beiber canceled one of his performances or something.

But I’m not understanding how this is really happening.  Like yes, I know, theoretically all one has to do is accidentally bring one of those suckers home.  One sketchy one night stand and you unknowingly tote one home via your hair or favorite J Crew sweater.  But then what?  Let’s conveniently assume that that resilient little critter makes it to your bed.  Then it feasts on you every other night until it dies of old age or you accidentally squash it in your sleep.  Infestation fail.

Or  maybe you unknowingly bring two home.  This I find harder to believe as I freak out if a random strand of hair brushes against me.  How someone can have two bedbugs hitch a ride home with them and never notice is beyond me.  But even if you do bring two home what are the chances that one is female and the other is male.  Seriously, what are the chances?  And that they actually like each other and mate?

Another possibility is that you accidentally bring home one pregnant bedbug.  And in that case you should just kill yourself because you are incredibly unlucky and would prob face your untimely demise via a freak accident anyway.

But as inconceivable as it seems, to me at least, the bugs are spreading like a curable, but not any less gross, STD in a value driven teen primetime drama.  So much so that the government is setting aside money to eradicate the problem.  Now, if the government is giving out money instead of figuring out another way to take it, you KNOW some shit is going down.  Basically, the world is about to end.  Bedbugs could like totally be the locusts of our time.  Hold on to your first born sons, folks. 

Because it's a really slow day today...

Yep, that's right.  You're getting two posts for the price of none (I can't believe I do this shit for free) since I'll be away this weekend and I know that you'll ::sings:: miss me a little when I'm gone, gone, goneeeee.  </drake lyric>

So I was browsing Yahoo's homepage this morning while inhaling my breakfast sandwich (nom nomz) when I came across this little tidbit.  If you're reading this in a reader and are opposed to ever clicking outside of those pretty two panes, here are the Spark Notes.  Taylor-Snooze Fest-Swift is upset that Kanye West keeps bringing up how he crashed the stage during last year's VMA's and suspects he's using and reusing that tale for publicity.  Um, ::insert bbm "uninterested" face here::

Oh Taylor.  Guess why Kanye and others keep bringing it up.  'CAUSE IT'S FUCKING FUNNY.  That was like the best thing that has ever happened to you.  Before I hated you because you were about as interesting as watching someone re-grout tile.  But now I simply dislike you because at least you helped create one of the funniest jokes of all time.  OF ALL TIME!  See??  I just effortlessly linked in Kanye's quote while dissing your lame ass and laughing.  That's how funny that shit still is. 

But the article gets even better.  Apparently, Kanye still feels so bad that he wrote her an apology letter.  Quoting: "I wrote a song for Taylor Swift that's so beautiful and I want her to have it. If she won't take it then I'll perform it for her."


What kind of creepy ass shit is that?  Wait, no, seriously.  The fuck?  I know while living in real, nondescript, society it feels like Hollywood is such a small world and everyone knows each other.  They really don't.  This would be the equivalent of some guy that accidentally cut you off in the EZ Pass lane finding you a year later at the grocery store and saying, "So, um, I wrote this poem for you..."  #sketchy

I mean, we all knew 'Ye was a nut but it doesn't make any of this less funny...

Where is my fab personal assistant when I need her?

Srsly.  I feel like cool shit is happening and I'm just out of the loop.  What. The. Hell.  Did you know there is going to be a Piperlime pop up shop?  'Cause I didn't.  And I frigging love that website.  Way to go Piperlime marketing team.  I feel like anytime something cool that pertains to my life comes into existence I should get a text message or some shit so I can be on top of things.  Yep, I'm pretty sure that's how life should be. 

Anyways, this shop HOLD THE FUCKING PHONE. Is "anyways" a word now?  'Cause there's no pretentious squiggly red line underneath it.  This is tripping me outttt.

What? Oh yeah.  So this Piperlime shit.  The store is "popping up" just 3 blocks from my job which is what the French call "convenient".  When they're not speaking French of course.  I'm gonna check it out and you should, too.  Except not the days I do because I don't need another stalker, thankyouverymuch.

As if really cute boots wasn't enough, they also have a line up of events:

This would all fan-fucking-tastic except I won't be in the city this weekend.  I'll be in VA getting drunk visiting a friend.  Just when I was getting over the fact that I would be missing Fashion's Night Out again (last year I simply forgot.  Alcohol - 1, My Short Term Memory - 0) I find out I'll be missing this, too.  Rachel Zoe.  In arm's reach.  I die.  If you don't watch her show you're missing out. She's like my favorite crackhead.  Which says a lot because I have a soft spot for crackheads.  They're just trying to get by like everyone else, you know?

But apparently I won't miss Whitney Port?  Oh yay.  And by "yay" I mean I can't even come up with a witty enough comment to describe how epically uninterested I am in her and her life.  She's about as relevant as an 8-track player with a voice that makes me want to drill small holes in kittens.  Have you heard her voice??  She should not talk, ever.  She should invest in American Sign Language lessons.  She should pick up one of those text to speech keyboards that are all the rage with the paraplegics.  Yes, all of that should happen.

For those of you not lucky enough to be in the NYC area, or are and are simply trying to avoid Whitney Port at all costs, here's what's hot on the website right now (+ my comments of course since I know that's what makes you guys stick around.  Ha.):

The Ledger by Fergie
This is the kind of shoe you pick up in the store, turn to your friend and ask, "I kind of like this.  Is that weird??"  Because this, my friends, is a whole lot of boot.  Additionally, if I had to explain what this looked like to to someone I probably say it's similar to the leg of an acid washed jean stretched over a cowboy boot.  Which sounds all sorts of wrong.

The Bountiful by Guess
I've been really into theses booties as of late event though they're painfully reminiscent of those "ghetto" Timberland heels of J to the Lo's hey day. 

The ha-sorry-I-forgot-and-then-closed-the-page-and-am-too-lazy-to-find-it-again by Naughty Monkey
You can't really tell but the back is embellished which I totally encourage.  More shoes should have studs and generally sparkly things because that's what a rockstar princess needs, thankyouverymuch.

The 77977 by Street Level
Put a ruffle on something and I get excited.  Put one BIG ASS ruffle on a clutch and I practically drop my pants.  Period.

Ha, for a second the Blogger editor wouldn't let me tab down any further and I was all really, Blogger, you're limiting the lengths of posts?  That's really Twitter/Communist-like of you.  But it's all good.  :)
Later days bitches,
