we'll walk through this world together.

I still have yet to see Black Swan. In anticipation, here's one of my all-time favorite Natalie Portman roles-- quirky way before Garden State. (She's not the greatest actress, in my opinion, but she sure is pretty.)

So, lots-- and nothing at the same time-- has been happening this December, which is why I haven't posted in a while. I know that doesn't really make sense, but it's true. Since grad school's let out for winter break, all I've really done is work, read Flannery O'Connor biographies, sleep, eat pumpkin everything, drink tons of sweet tea, and re-watch a whole lot of Futurama on Netflix.

It's weird that Christmas is over. It sort of just came and went, no? I did get to decorate J's mom's house and wrap her presents to J's nieces while watching Home Alone, so that was nice and holiday-filled. We also painted her garage door and his sisters' new place. I like to paint, by the by.

Aside from that, I went on a vegas vacation last week, which J and his sisters and cousins do every year. The weather was miserable but I got to wear some coats and scarves and mittens and gloves, so I was happy for the most part. They opened up the hugest H&M out there so we went to peruse for a bit as well. We also ventured to the cutest little bar in Old Town Vegas called the Griffin. It was probably the best part about the trip. I'm not a big Vegas person in the least. Not a big drinker or gambler. I like the buffets and shows though. I still have yet to see Cirque du Soliel's Love. (I'm a Beatles fan, and I like anything to do with dancing; I took ballet, hip hop, and jazz.. Oh and tango!)

So, since it's been so long with an actual outfit/fashion related post... Here's a smorgasbord of pictures for you! Most of them are bad quality, sorry!

At the Griffin. This was the night we drove into Vegas from southern CA, and I'm wearing my broken non-up to date prescription glasses, a striped top from Anthro, and a snood scarf from H&M that I like using as a hood on the rainy streets of Vegas. Leather UO bag.

Shopping. This is my favorite outfit of late, and probably the one I'll wear to the Dressember festivities on Thursday. Too bad it's so blurry. (I like how one of my legs looks bloated from the reflective surface outside Dior. J's giant head is great here, too). It's a work outfit I put together (I work at American Apparel) and now I can't get enough of it. It's the creme silky round collar top, the black tank dress, and bordeaux bamboo tights. The camel wool coat is from Pale pink snood from H&M, lace up ankle boots from Etsy, leather bag from Urban Outfitters three years ago.

AZN-ing out. This is also an American Apparel outfit. We planned to go to a club, but J hates clubs, so we decided to go out and wander and be silly, while his cousins and sister braved Lavo. Lace Chiffon dress in black, basic bodysuit in black, suede skinny belt in bordeaux. Black sheer polka dot ankle socks from J. Crew.

Losing seven dollars at the Wheel of Fortune slots. I dominate at the actual game show, though!

More silly after some Shirley Temples. :)

And then! Day before Christmas, Erin from Calivintage comes into my store. I nerd out and tell my coworkers who she is, and we end up taking pictures with her.

On Christmas Eve we went to J's mom's for a gift exchange and yummy tamales and a talent show that J's brother won. Then Christmas day was spent at his aunt's where we ate a whole lot, played Kinect for the XBox 360 and board games galore. I hope your guys' holidays were wonderful as well!

I should be finishing off the final revision of my Buster Keaton short story-- and I am! I swear!-- but I'm taking a break to post these songs I recorded three years ago with my friend Ray. Enjoy. I plan on doing more soon. And if you want more, there's some video on YouTube of me and my friend Austin doing a cover of "Let's Duet" from the movie Walk Hard.

in Gothenburg we don't have VIP lines

Hey my loves! I'm feeling a lot better now, and you guys get to benefit from it. For the holidays (until the very end of December), I've decided to waive shipping for U.S. Etsy shoppers. For international, you guys get the normal U.S. shipping. :) So get shopping please! HoneyBee Vintage. I'll be adding new stuff once finals week is over.


And, because J is so nice and wonderful and always puts up with me::


I love Kirsten Dunst, even though so many people seem not to like her. Interview with a Vampire, Virgin Suicides, Jumanji (heh)... and she and her wardrobe are the only good things about the movie Elizabethtown (besides Alec Baldwin). She's kind of-- indirectly-- one of my style icons, ever since chrissstttiiine told me we dress alike. :) So here is a video dedicated to her because I love her (she's finally coming back on the scene!) and Jens Lekman... It's not even creepy that he kinda is stalking her in the song, because it's Jens. :) Apparently they actually were in Gothenburg at the same time, so maybe there's some truth to this funny little anecdotal song...
(this is at the show I was at but wasn't at)

turn the music up, and keep your mouth shut

I had a bust of a night last night, wherein I made J drive us out into the stressful streets of LA, namely Sunset Blvd on a Saturday night at 10pm to go see Jens Lekman at Skybar for free. Too bad he went on at 9. Sadface. So bummed out. So we walked, got propositioned on the street, and then turned home to eat McDonalds for the second time that day and then had a hot restless and uncomfortable sleep.

But, J has assured me that we will catch Jens at some other time in the future (he's already seen him before).

Jens Lekman from Black Cab Sessions on Vimeo.

(edit:: the embed doesn't work but click on the link. it's Jens doing Black Cab all low-fi in a black cab! :) I think I posted it up before and it worked. I'm gonna look through old posts. I'm pretty sure I've done like 100 Jens posts... The Black Cab Sessions is an awesome site, by the by. Other awesome artists like Au Revoir Simone and St. Vincent participated in it)
