So today mommy took me shopping as an early birthday present and I got:
This Anthropologie hoodie which is regularly $98.00 for $49.95!
and I got a black vest from there whose label says Project Alabama, it was originally $98 and I got it for $20.
It kinda looks like this minus the beading
Then I got the best deal of EVER:
This Andersen & Lauth vest which is still $148 on the UO website, was $40 at the store. I have been lusting this vest forever, and never ever thought it would ever be mine. <3
I also bought some jeans and a tank, oh and really warm pajama pants at Old Navy that are soooo cozy.

Second, I stretched my ears to now a 00g. :)
My sister told me I look like Mixi, the winner or Redemption Song on Fuse. She is awesome, though I was also rooting for Kendra or Jazmin.
Here is Mixi's video for "I Miss Those Days." This song will not leave your head, guarenteed. You will be singing this in the shower tomorrow morning like it or not.
Thank you face hunter, for finding my new favorite person in the whole world.

It's sooo amazing.
I have no idea what I would wear it to but every day sounds like a good occasion to start with.
It amazes me that there aren't many unique looking dresses out there like this one. On every prom site all the dresses look extremely similar.
I wish I was still in high school and had a prom to go to. (my lazy broke bf and I didn't go last year) By the way we broke up, again, this weekend so things have not been fun. But my hair is red and black so that's pretty happy-making.
My inspiration folder was getting crammed, so I collaged it:
Oh, and this is my favorite song/band this week- Margot and the Nuclear So and So's- A Children's Crusade On Acid

So skirts and shorts are a must.
But it gets chilly at night so I threw on tights and a sweater
So yesterday I went to the most amazing concert ever.. Minus the Bear. It was full of stoners, but I still had a great time. We sat along the wall and I swayed and sang along to all of the music. They even played part of the show acoustically... wow.
Here is a link for their acousic song:
Minus the Bear - Guns & Ammo
Just right click and "save as" to keep it, or just click for it to open on your music player as a temporary file.
This is them performing my fav song The Fix live (in Chicago earlier on this tour)

Secondly, I haven't been writing much because of my hectic life. I wish my college wasn't an hour away, it's killing me. Also, all of my friends get Thanksgiving breaks, but my college, doesn't believe in them, lame.
But college did allow me to do something amazing the other night. We had to go to a spoken word event for my lit class, and I went to Lestat's open mic night, and it was amazing. (they're a 24 hour coffee shop, hell yea) I've been really down lately, but it made me forget about the rest of the world for a few hours. Apparently it was recently voted best open mic in San Diego, and I can tell why. There were many hilarious comics, one amazing poet, and many talented musicians. One of my favorite acts was Happy Ron. He's a San Diego legend who sang one of his songs Terribly Happy, which is, "About being happy in a job you hate, after childbirth, and even if your album bombs," says Happy's Myspace. This man is so funny and entertaining. The Midget Farmer's sang a song about foreskin, and The Trashman did a hilarious comic act. Josh Damigo was my favorite though. Like, John Mayer watch out this boy can belt. He sang this song:
So if you've never been to an open mic, I suggest you try it, it's so fun. Oh, and the couple in front of me definately made me crave dreds and sleeve tattoos.
This is what I wore to Lestat's:
Ha, about that face... yea.
It's been super cold here lately, so my outfits have just been boots jeans tanks or a random shirt and a big sweatshirt. I had no school today, so the boy and I hiked a 3 mile trail up and down a mountain, it definately helped me relieve stress and feel better.
At the mall the other day I got two new pairs of shoes (well 1 was boots), a purple AA skirt and V neck, and cable knit tights, but I'll post outfit pics featuring all of them. H&M was kinda gross, (yea I know shoot me) but it felt like a grosser Charolette Russe. I don't know if it was just the mass amounts of people, but I didn't like it. The clothing looked cheaply made too, like worse than UO, but that stuff is cute so they get pardoned. (someone has to agree with me)
Well, I have to write my Lestat's paper now, a definate fun-sucker.

They're from Victoria's Secret..... and I'm lost, they may be hideous or semi-ugly-but-attractive-because-of-their-ugliness. What do you think?
So they FINALLY opened an H&M in my city and we're going there today, and lo and behold, it's pouring rain. In San Diego, that's practically an oxymoron. And the entire mall is outdoors. Well, we're going to face it anyways, so I'll write of my day later.

California weather sucks, I was getting all stoked because it was finally cooling down and even rained once or twice, but then, it was back to scorching today aand apparently will continue to be so for a while. Lame. But at least I scored two days of wear out of my Chinese Laundry boots.
I love them.
So I decided I'm just going to wear this beanie often to cover up my roots cause bleaching makes my hair grow slower, then let it grow until December, then dye it black with Manic Panic dye so it will wash out, (slowly but surely, which is why I'm waiting till school's over) then if I like the black, doing that, and if not, continue the murder of bleach. Yes, I apologize this was a pointless rant about my hair.
The music I've been digging as of late has been Stars, like always, but more particularly their song He Lied About Death.. even though the lyrics have nothing to do with it, and by "gay: they mean happy, it still pretty well corresponds with my unhappiness for prop 8, a new ban on gay marriage in Cali.
What gives you the right?
To fuck with our lives?
A devil born in paradise
A liar loves to lie
Keep watching your back
Killers always have killers on their track
Keep watching the sky
'cause you might get lucky again
I hope your drunken daughters are gay!
You are the shadow of fear!
Yoou scare the love out of here
Like an ape in a cage
Small white man in a rage
Mellow suit, mellow smile
Limousines down murder mile...
Watch the devil's at play!
Drain the bottle empty
Tomorrow it's you and me...

I chose the suede ones over the leather, because they are softer and won't look strange to dress down.
So muuusssiiicc... On the 1st of November I went to a Suicide Silence, Emmure, Beneath the Massacre, After the Burial, and The Architects concert. Rawr rawr rawr music I call it. Emmure is my hardcore love, I want "this is a promise I keep to myself" tattooed on me. The Architects was a brit band, so when he was introducing songs he had the most amazing accent ever. <3
Then yesterday mommy bought me Nightmare Revisited, because I was a weird little kid who loved the Nightmare Before Christmas, and I love this CD too. It's a bunch of artists wo re-did the songs while adding a bit of their own style.
My favorite is Flyleaf covering What's This:
For halloween I was, suprise, suprise, a Fafinette.
I started off in shorts, then a dress, then jeans a jacket and a scarf, all as the night became colder. I spent the holiday on the bay bonfiring with some old and new (both very drunk) friends from USD.
Taghrid was where I got the idea for my costume, because up until the day before I didn't have one. Plus it gave me an excuse to draw hearts on my cheeks and wear stripey socks :)

I LOOOOOVE it!
she is a genius.
Oh, and I thrifted this scarf and I love it too!
Then a few days ago Tyler and I decided to take another go at acid washing and it worked a little better this time.
My favorite black halter vest isn't mine anymore.. it's my little sisters which looks just like mine but smaller. :) Oh, and you can't see it but I have a new pendant necklace that I made with the heart off of a chail that was connected to a purse my mother bought at Tilly's.
The new Minus The Bear acoustic song off their new entirely acoustic CD. It's all their old music just done acoustically, plus a new song, Guns and Ammo..

tonight I saw Chiodos, Silverstein, Escape the Fate, Alesana, and a Skylit Drive. It was AMAZING. It was also the most packed show I've ever been to. The entire building was full to the brim with moshing teens, tweens, and twenty-somethings alike.
Silverstein performed their song My Heroin acoustically... it was beautiful. So enjoy..
I swear I'm trying to take outfit pics but my camera keeps taking super grainy ones that no amount of photoshop will fix. So I'm working on that.
In other news... Nylon, I'm disappointed... Paris Hilton!?!?!? No no no.
AAAANNNNDDD I want the Mary-Kate and Ashley book Inspiration for Christmas. (or Halloween, or any day someone feels like giving me a present) :D
Tuesday, October 21, 2008
I'm going to open an etsy I think. I made this etch-a-sketch necklace and it makes me happy :)
I'm in crazy midterm mode this week, which is why posts are sparse and short.
This vid by The Buddy System... math music scientist geniuses, no words, just angry monsters. Tyler and I watched it millions of times.

I usually don't go to super mainstream shows because all of the twelve year olds get on my nerves but I couldn't pass up this one.
So I walked away with an AA We The Kings Owns Your Face shirt and a confirmed crush on William Bekket. He's so gorgeous in person, and he knows it too, which makes me like him more. The boy definately didn't like my gushing, but he gushed over Hey Monday's (the opening band) lead singer. Okay I admit I slightly gushed over her too. They sound like, well Paramore, but don't let that discourage you, this girl can actually sing instead of that talky-babble Hayley Williams has been messing with lately. But Hey Monday was a great band, and she was pretty hot too. So definately look into them if you're looking for something that sounds like Paramore, but done right. (still the same amount of "Woah!"s and "La la la"s though) Oh, Carolina Liar played too. (the "I'm not over you just yet.." guys) They looked like they needed showers and haircuts but they have a great sound. We The Kings did a cover of The Gorillaz's Feel Good Inc. and it was so good. Here's them doing it at another show:
Some girls from Band Vibe came by and took our pic, so instead of re-creating my outfit, I'll just post that one when they put it up. I think I'm going to look into that site for a job, because the San Diego team they have now doesn't cover the shows I go to, so I could definately help fill that gap... I just need a better camera.... any takers on giving me one? :)

And I finally joined Modepass after so many people raving to me about it. You can click the link or go here- http://modepass.com/mollieaesthetic to add me.
No outfit today, I woke up late after my all night essay writing and threw on my purple t-shirt, cut-offs, black sneakers, and went to school to turn in my paper.
But I was singing this song in my head all day. It was featured on Degrassi in probably January of last year (when they killed off JT), and still it's nowhere to be found! So YouTube was my last resort.
I must have an obsession with girl singers lately, but Damhnait Doyle is incredible. Her voice is so perfect and this song is so amazing. Read the lyrics if you have the time to watch/listen to this song. They will make you want to life life to the fullest, and will make a sensitive person out of even the biggest hardass.
Now to figure out how to make a YouTube account for the Tyler video I took.. hmm..

Shiny Buddha shirt I bought on the sale rack for like four bucks a few years ago :)
Still not feeling good. :(
Typing aa poetry paper, which sucks.
The music in my head is definately Amanda Palmer singing Runs in the Family. Lovvee her solo status.
