Neneh Cherry is the original M.I.A. She caused a stir by rapping onstage while preggers way before M.I.A. did it. I remember when the song “Buffalo Stance” first came out, and I was singing about gigolos like I, a toddler, knew what a gigolo was. This song is still awesome now. If you don’t remember her, then you may remember her brother Eagle Eye Cherry and his song “Save Tonight.” Photo from NPG.
Kanye West “Paranoid” feat Rhianna as some eye candy. I feel like she is finally being herself instead of pretending to be someone she isn’t, or maybe she just learned how to be a good actress. UPDATE:I had to change the video because they removed it. Hopefully this one works.

I am really inspired by this editorial from 10 Magazine. Alber Elbaz really designs beautiful, bright, colorful clothing for Lanvin. These pictures are great, but I hope you all go to Style.com. Seeing them on the runway is just beautiful. I still like this editorial because it is so dramatic. I picked the best shots to show you all.
I am so disappointed with Target’s Pure Energy line. It was supposed to be a plus size contemporary line, but there is nothing contemporary about it. Everything looks like old hippie wear. I love hippies, but Mama Cass wouldn’t even wear this stuff.
The dresses, the tops, just about everything is horrendous, and the line doesn’t even fit the models well. How are you going to sell something when the models look bad? The patterns and prints are terrible. They aren’t even flattering. Some of the tank tops make you look preggers.
I used to want to major in medieval art and history, so I tend to love all things medieval. Unfortunately for me, when I look at some of the clothes Target made for this collection, I suddenly get the urge to sing “Are you going to Scarborough Fair?”
I am so sad because I only like two pieces from the collection. I guess that means I can save my money for something better. I wish I had the money to come up with my own plus size store because I promise it would be way better than this.
Someone take me to go see this movie. PLEASE! Paper heart is supposed to come out in August. I am letting you all know in advance. It stars Charlene Yi and Michael Cera, who I think are a real life couple. I am still not sure if this is a documentary,movie,whatever. I feel like I can relate to Charlene in many ways. Anyway this is a total geek movie, and since I am a total geek, I am putting this on my movies to see list.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s Elizabeth and James line now has shoes. I really like these shoes because they are shoes that I could see myself wearing. The Stock Flat is a shoe I could see myself wearing everyday with some jeans and a crisp white shirt. I love loafers because they go with a lot of the clothes that I own, and the pony hair gives it an exotic look. The Edge Gladiator Sandal is another shoe I could see myself wearing everyday one of the floral dresses I just bought. The Haley Wedge isn’t a shoe I would wear everyday, but I really like the shape, color of the leather, and texture of the wedge heel. This is another shoe I would wear with jeans and a crisp white shirt. The Haley Wedge also looks comfortable. I can see a little bit of padding in there. The only thing I don’t like about the shoes is the price. They are sadly not in my budget. Photo from Who What Wear.
I have an Etsy crush on SarahSeven’s clothes. They are too cute, and the presentation/photography is nice too. They range in price from $100- $500. I could see myself wearing these dresses and skirts to work, a party, or both. This is her blog Beaus and Arrows.
I am looking for a job/internship as you all know. Well I spent 2 hours doing a Walgreens pharmacy application, I tried to do one for the Gap/Old Navy and their computer system didn’t like me. Now I am about to try and apply to this store called Handpicked and Target. I am so pissed with this current job environment.
