Golden Gladiators

I ordered these little pretties on Zappos yesterday:

DV by Dolce Vita, Daisy-11

So excited about them. I'm seeing them with skinny jeans and American Apparel tees. Also I'm starting to notice that I've become obsessed with metallic shoes.

Rumor has it* that girls are wearing their gladiators buckled around the ankle of skinny jeans?
Should I even be allowed to consider this?

*yes I am well aware that this was discovered a month ago, but cut me some slack - Bmore isn't exactly fashion capital of the world, let alone even the state of Maryland.

NSFW Jewelery

This necklace from Vivienne Westwood (<3) is amazing:


I was about to order it...

but it's "out of stock."

Torture I say! TORTURE!

There Really Should be a Law About the Use of the Word "Fashion"

Heidi Montag's new single, Fashion, is a crime against humanity.


(priceless lyrics included in the "more info" link here)

Thanks to Fashionista for the tip!

Friday night Ben & I went to Rams Head Live! to see Stephen Kellogg & the 6ers and Toad the Wet Sprocket.

SK6ers are my absoulte fave, and they were great as always. Unfortunately, they were "supporting" Toad, so they only played for 45 minutes. It was not nearly long enough.




Double unfortunately, I was feeling super-sick while we were waiting for Toad to come on, and we had to go home. I'm still not over it. :(

Saturday night was less unfortunate.
It was Somerfest at the Lancaster Liederkranz (German club). So lots of friends, yummy foods & booze.


After the 'fest I had my first (very overdue) Rock Band session.

I think I've found my true calling as a rockstar.

Justice Does It Again

the newest video from electronic music greats Justice, for 'Stress' - from the album cross.

pretty intense. and impossible to ignore.

considering the trifecta of videos that have come from this album - the other two being D.A.N.C.E. and DVNO, Justice has definitely shown a serious talent for the medium (especially in an age when MTV, MTV2 and VH1 don't show music videos).

Graduation Day

Ben's graduation was on Saturday, and it was a fantastic (and long!) day. Cal Ripken jr did not disappoint (you can read his commencement address here) and the very foreboding weather forecast did not ruin our day.

The sun came out just as all the graduates were processing onto the football field. And the first drop of rain didn't even fall until they began walking out. I'm convinced that UD has control over the weather - it's always gorgeous on important days, such as homecoming and DelaWorld (freshman orientation).

Some pictures from the big day!

Graduation - Trabant
