Luckily this time I managed to land myself in The Mission and OH did I find boutiques!, Only the kind of boutiques that force your wallet to cry. All that mess about "I'll just take pictures and window shop" yea.. window shop my ass, lets face it, I couldn't resist.
Besides the hour long mirror photo shoot I had with myself in the fitting room, I roamed the boutique very discretely (or attempted discreteness) taking pictures of everything that I thought was cute (which was everything) talking to myself "oohhh this would be cute in my room", "waaaa??, a book all about Macaroons?!", Im pretty sure the managers were about ready to call security.
I reminded myself why I love San Francisco so much, so I'v decided I need to do this way more often, you know, creepily invaded peoples boutiques and scare all there costumers away.. or just getting out of bed and finding myself new favorite clothing stores, cause I'm thinking even if its a little more expensive I'd rather put my money into a unique little businesses then make the boring old trip to the mall for chhheeeaap (not the good cheap) H&M or Forever 21 stuff.. BLEH..gross.

This is my first attempt at a fashion shoot ( or one that's public anyway) and we really tried hard to act like we knew how to model.This photo shoot was as spontaneous as they come. Jess stopped by to return borrowed clothing and desperate to share/brag about my new gold tip booties I quickly dressed my un-showered self and headed to the front yard with the i-pad. Speaking of unplanned...ness, I cant tell wether the fact that we both just happened to be wearing black&white is sad and lifeless or awesome because it would mean that we have telepathy. Either way it really did just happened that way and I think the saddest part is that I'm just noticing it as I make this post.
Beauty really is pain.. and classy and sexy...
With Summer coming to an end and me heading back to San Fran soon I'm a little disappointed that my
little legs will have to freeze when I buy one of these dynamic skirts because once it gets on my wish list, its not coming down.
My favorite part is that it's incredibly flattering and unlike most mini skirts its not as intimidating. Mini skirts to me are never interesting enough for the amount of sluttiness that it has has, no matter how patterned it is. Im not sure anyone can get away with wearing a straight mini and still come off as classy. but this!... oh this, this is the true essence of sexy and classy and I'm lovin it!

Can I be the fist to complain about the annoying rip in the tights problem that actually probably has more people complaining then just me. Im literally currently counting how many times I have ripped, thrown out and then bought new "Sheer" tights too many to count & too many to even mention
because it would mean I have spent a ridiculous amount of money on many pairs of ultra thin, basically none-existent tights that last 1 week at the most.
Why is that I cant resist sheerness/ transparentness. Some how I keep going back for more even when I foresee the sad day that I either have to justify that the rips are intentional and I really am just going for the grunge look (which I dig, don’t get me wrong), or save them for my next Halloween contraption. Maybe its just the idea throwing on tights with any skirt or dress, just kind of makes the whole outfit better. Perhaps I’m bias because I’m a big accessorizer but really, ITS TRUE. Put on any hip, trendy dress or skirt and add a pair of sheer tights, its just better. period.
Ok maybe not EVERY DRESS but now I’v got into the tight wearing club, and there is no goin back. Its the perff combination between sexy, modest and trendy... that’s my goal..is to be sexy, modest & trendy. IDK, seems like the thing to be, so lets just go with it.
So I just one day hope that I will be the trend setter of the ripped tights revolution for the sake of my fellow fashionistas, because lets face it, we are OVER the rips and need a more valid excuse then "the grudge look is my thing". So its starts here my friends, if ripped sheer tights become a thing, just remember, it all started here ;).
P.S. I'm sure it won’t start here. And maybe it’s already a thing! Who knows, but I’m a free spirit living in San Francisco so imma wear my ripped tights anyway!.. yolo? (mainly cause I cant afford to keep buying new ones)

LunaLiveBad aint so Gangsta
This was the COOLEST!
I went to Compton (Yes.. Compton) for my first ever mission trip! Naturally as a 5 foot, 100 pound, 12 year old looking christian girl I couldn't avoid the all the conceptions rumored around the city of compton, like violent gangs, the high population of homless and lots of drug use. Although There was a
lot of these things, there is also a lot of misconception about Compton that unfortunately come along with just knowing the meer facts. I literally thought that if I walked 10 feet away from my fellow christian mates, that I was either going to be shot, raped or kidnaped.. seriously?.. I really thought that. Sadly its not that surprising to people who have never been there.
After an exhausting 7 hour drive we arrived at a park right smack dab in the middle of east Compton. Of course still obvi expecting a big gangster dude wearing a sweat suit, accessorized with an overly sized gold chain...
was going to kidnap me and jump me into their gang or else murder me (Hopefully gangsters nowadays are a little more stylish) Its already pretty sad when the first gangter that comes to mind is Ice Cube, considering he's now infamous for being in abc family movies. OK, truthfully this is dramatic. Thankfully I didn't join a gang that day, BUT I did meet a gal by the name of LunaLiveBad.
Or at least thats what she told me her INSTA name was. Looking back maybe it would have been good idea to ask for her real name, but my first thought was "she probably has sick pictures on Instagram" so I asked, buuuuut.. I couldn't find her -__- . So LunaLiveBad will forever be my Compton angel.
She was posing in an all black is back look, with a band like shirt and edgy ripped tights. She was an already tall chick wearing 4 inch black booties and just like a Compton angle had a head band made out of black roses. Lunalivebad told me she was also a rapper and was modeling for a local designer. ..wait.. are you thinking what im thinking?... THIS CHICK IS FUCKING AWESOME!. I literally left thinking "now thats a broad I wanna get to know!"
ANYWHOO, my first interpretation of the REAL Compton was a cool chick wearing some cool clothes, nothin thuggish.
Don't worry I didn't roam the city of Compton by myself only to look for local model/rappers. I did lots of other things.
