Your last daydream is slowly unreeling...

My sister Anna rocking out to something...

So I'm here in Jersey after a less than scenic three hour car ride. It was eventful; I compulsively took pictures in the car, saw an 18 wheeler go up in flames, and my sister forgot to put the cap on the gas tank. But in the end we all made it back in one piece and now I'm eating an overpriced yet delicious meal.

After we had some free time before meeting the guys so we walked around the Asbury Park Boardwalk. It's very strange to walk up and down the boardwalk because you can just imagine what used to be there. The abandoned Casino was once filled with people and the boardwalk was Bustling with tourists from the city. Now the boardwalk is basically empty and the building are abandoned. However there is still beauty there. I love old abandoned buildings so it was this was the perfect place for a photo shoot. Actually inside the abandoned casino there were a few really cool murals that were perfect.

Beautiful and sad quote

The funny thing is that I'm actually typing this on my iPhone so I can keep consistent with my blogging. However it is quite annoying due to the fact that blogger is super slow and non functional in mobile web. Do any of you know of any good iPhone blogging apps? But for now I'm standing outside of a jazz club with the band ignoring them and typing, my fat thumbs fumbling about. I admit this is a bit socially inept but then again, when else will I find time to do this. But I think I'm done now, and I will be adding pictures and posting this tomorrow.

Sheila Take A Bow, La La La, La La La La La

Hello again. Look! I posted again. Hopefully this isn't a passing trend.
Dress: Darling @
Shoes: Vintage Nine West
Ring: Forever 21
So today I decided to take it easy. I slept in until nine, not too shabby. Sleeping in is one of the few luxurieees I enjoy as an unemployed college student durring a summer off. Actually it's probably the only luxury I'm able to have because everything takes money now a days and I only have $32.74 in my checking and $52.40 in my savings. I have been playing alot of shows but I'm not seeing any of the money yet... so I'm broke. At least I don't have to pay rent, or for food (unless it is not provided by mi familia). Being poor isn't fun. :(

Now that I think about it the other luxury of being unemployed is having spare time and a very flexable schedule. Which is perfect for the band, expecially since my sister and I are always driving back and forth from Jersey. Blah. As much as I like the band thing, always going to a place I'm not familiar with, where I have no friends besides my bandmates, is kind of disheartening. Oh well, I guess it's part of the job.

Here's a list of shows again:

Friday July 8th, Mill Creek Tavern

I really appreciate you guys in the fashion blogging world. And if you can come out and see me play one of my shows. It would mean so much to me!

I guess this is too much complaining and not enough fashion. Or is it okay that this whole post isn't fashion concerned. Truthfully I'm not all fashion. It's only one facet of my life. I play music (which takes up most of my time), I make art, I read, I'm great at math. Should a personal fashion blog be just be about fashion? I don't know.

And if you read my whole post... Thanks <3

The Blues are Still Blue... (my first real post in a very long time)

Look what I did... I acually posted as promised!

Right now I am sitting infront of my computer as I watch Twin Peaks on Netflix and eat an egg salad sandwich. What a wonderful way to start out the Fourth of July.

Dress: Vintage
Shoes: Forever 21
 Before any of this happened though I got all dolled up and took a few outfit pictures before the heat became unbearable. I had the perfect outfit for this festive day. I actually got this vintage dress freshman year of highschool, actually it was first authentic vintage dress. The greatest thing is that it still fits. And truthfully I can't think of anything else to say right now. I'll come up with something. My head is currently swimming with visions of fireworks and hot dogs  and swimming, and the exciting happenings in Twin Peaks...

By the way this is actually my first time wearing these espadrilles. I got them a while ago but I never wear heels, they are just to restrictive for my everyday running around. Unfortunatley, I love buying heels so maybe I should put them into good use...

What else to talk about let's see... Well on Wednesday I'm heading to New Jersey to see  a few friends, and play a few shows with my band. Fun stuff right? Actually it's a tremendous amount of fun and our band sounds fantastic. Really. If you haven't read any of my recent posts my band is called, "Underwater Country Club" and we have a fan page on the Facebook. And if you can, come to one of our shows. They are so much fun. What I'm really excited for is Saturday's show in New York City at a venue called Arlene's Grocery. The Strokes played one of their first shows there. We actually played there in the winter, but they liked us so much that we were called back for their best of night. Here's the link to the event if you want to go (It's 21+) LINK. Here's a list of our shows in the next week, see if you can come out for one of them, maybe even shoot me an e-mail for more info:

Friday July 8th, Mill Creek Tavern

So I guess this is goodbye. Until tomorrow...
