Check Me Out: One Lucky Girl

Check Me Out: One Lucky Girl

Have you ever had the realization there wasn’t a single thing you’d want to change about your life, even if a billowing Angela Landsbury emerged from a magic teapot to grant you a wish? Well, maybe after a jillion dollars (and a burrito) rained down on me, I’d feel that way. Still. I call myself damn lucky.

Reason #1 My new boyfriend is sweet, talented, adventurous, grows one helluva beard, and actually likes hanging out with my mom, taking time to watch every single sunset, and taking photos of me. I’m still convinced he immortalizes my days just to show his friends the hilarious jokes I call “outfits.” This one involves combining black with brown, mixed metals, mixed leathers, and a DIY hairdo. Salons in LA are defined as dodgy if they don’t charge at least one limb for a haircut.

Reason #2 In spite of my best efforts, my hair color manages to look like I may still have salon connections – or at least that’s what I’ve been getting. But! There were no actual skills involved – I literally pinned up the top layer of my platinum locks and slapped a foolproof sample of John Frieda Precision Foam Color (in Dark Cool Pearl Blonde) onto the under layer. This stuff is brilliant. The haircut was inspired by Joan of Arc, Louise Brooks, and Jamaica’s self-inflicted bowl-cut (Experimentation + Luck = SKILLUSION).

Reason #3 Just over a week after arriving in LA, I scored a meeting with the VP of Online Marketing for Lucky Brand. He said I was their quintessential Southern California Girl. “Huh! SURE!” I agreed. Among other things, he ended up sending me these gorgeous art nouveau earrings, and a pair of leather platform dream shoes. Little does he know that after just over 3 months here, I’m a total convert. Charlie, you’re a prophet.

Reason #4 This outfit cost me a grand total of $8, thanks to my sponsors and friends.
Gold Earrings and Shoes – Lucky Brand
Sunglasses – American Apparel
Vintage Bustier – $4 Thrift Store, Phoenix
Leather Jacket – a gift, vintage made in Vancouver, BC
Silver Bangle – Barrio Vintage, Honolulu
Gold Bangle and Leather Belt – $4 Thrift Store, Tucson

Reason #5 I’ve got spreads coming out in Material Girl Magazine, Estetica and nationally available (at all major drug stores) Reinventing Beauty Magazine. Woo!

  • Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your site on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, awesome blog!

  • There are no people to view, but different
    scenes can be seen at different times. This makes it very exciting for children and even adults.
    The promise of desktops and video gaming as tutors
    was clearly recognized in the eighties when there was a national push to have laptops
    in to the classrooms.

  • You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  • I want to express some thanks to you just for rescuing me from this type of crisis. Just after checking through the online world and finding basics which were not powerful, I thought my entire life was over. Being alive minus the approaches to the problems you have solved all through the write-up is a critical case, and ones which could have in a wrong way damaged my career if I hadn’t come across your blog post. The skills and kindness in touching every aspect was crucial. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a solution like this. I am able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thank you so much for your high quality and results-oriented guide. I won’t think twice to recommend your blog post to any person who should get care on this area.

  • Hey, you used to write magnificent, but the last few posts have been kinda boring¡K I miss your great writings. Past several posts are just a little bit out of track! come on!

  • I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  • Aw, this was a really nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to produce a really good article¡­ but what can I say¡­ I hesitate a whole lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

  • I am always browsing online for tips that can aid me. Thx!

  • I was recommended this web site by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as no one else know such detailed about my problem. You’re amazing! Thanks!

  • Hey there! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 3gs!
    Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your
    posts! Carry on the superb work!

  • Hello my family member! I wish to say that this article is amazing, great written and include approximately all important infos. I’d like to peer more posts like this.

  • I blog often and I really thank you for your content.
    This article has really peaked my interest. I’m going to bookmark your
    website and keep checking for new information about once per week.

    I subscribed to your RSS feed as well.

  • Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  • Its like you learn my mind! You appear to know so
    much about this, like you wrote the e book in it or something.
    I think that you just can do with a few p.c. to pressure the message house a bit, but
    instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A great read.
    I will definitely be back.

  • Wij zijn 3 jaar klant geweest bij Juresta Nederland bv.

    Wij hebben veel klachten over Juresta, ze werpen veel hindernissen op
    als ze moeten incasseren. Juresta kwam meestal bij ons zeuren dat het een niet haalbare incasso was en dat wij Juresta moesten betalen. Als we dan toch wilden doorzetten lieten ze de incasso zaak versloffen. Een ander probleem was
    dat Juresta wil dat voordat ze iets aan hun klant uitkeren dat die klant allemaal fax formulieren verstuurt.
    En ze lieten het ons niet weten als er geld op de rekening bij Juresta binnenkwam.
    Wij adviseren iedereen een ander incassobureau te zoeken, wij zijn nu bij een ander
    bureau zeer tevreden.
