ring o' bling. o' karma.

Alexis Neiers, 18, entered a no-contest plea to a single felony charge of robbery.

Alexis Neiers was sentenced to 180 days in jail. I'm guilty of watching her E! show "Pretty Wild", and I'm glad she didn't get off the hook for being a cute girl with fame and fortune in her reach. Neiers was part of the Hollywood "Bling Ring" a group of Hollywood kids from the wrong side of the tracks that stole from celebrities like Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Rachel Bilson (what I wouldn't give to go into her closet---LEGALLY). Shes ONLY 18 and there are countless photos of her in online tabloids drinking, nude, and smoking what appears to be oxy.

Gross. Maybe she will learn something...or get released early in typical LA style. Though I hope she is out to film season two, so entertaining!

Alexis is on the far left.

Photo change: due the personal preference. If you're my friend on Facebook you can view the crazy eye picture. Otherwise....this one personifies me and Ad...and I love this picture...

Hold onto each other for dear life, even in a room full of people or a crowded bar/restaurant. I would also like to point out that I can ONLY identify four of the seven people in this photograph. Crazy eyes is me, Adam (le boyfriend in my death grip) is sporting the J.Crew gingham, Derek has the death grip on his Miller Lite, and Jake is sporting the tie. The other three girls in our hotel room=strangers or guests of guests.

P.S. the Dress is from H&M, tights Wolford, and belt J.Crew, watch Michael Kors, crazy eyes courtesy of champagne.


frankiephoto Photo of the Day | Out of Luck

I'm a social media and marketing vigilante on the search for my right fit. I'm packing passion with a punch to do big things, do these big things well, and do them beyond my means. We have to fight for the feeling to step outside of the box, and take a look around without holding our breath. It's time for change, for the good, for karma to kick in and grant me what I deserve - a chance. I crave success, but find it hard to be 23 in a world, where there is little success for my age bracket. Where recent graduates and young adults are left with the biggest distaste for their jobs (and rightfully so because we are being put against people twice are age, with three times as much experience). It's not fair, but it is life. It is worth living, and it is worth kicking some @$$ and taking names to make a name for myself.

So, as I assemble hundreds of boxes in my little cubicle (no, that was not in the job description) and I watch my manicure chip (yes, my OPI "You Don't Know Jacques" looks craptastic now) I try to do it with a smile (it's a tiny smile but it's still there). I wake up every morning feeling the same old sob story for myself: I hate my job. But, mom and dad know best, and money is money, a paycheck is a paycheck, and my life could be a lot worse. I have love, health, happiness, and a stable job. BUT: If I could change ONE thing it wouldn't be to be a size 2 (I'll settle for a size 4/6 at 5'9"), it wouldn't be to have perfect skin (I'm a-okay with a zit - time balm concealer is a Godsend), it wouldn't be to have more money (though numerous balenciagas and loubs would be nice), I wouldn't want to be famous (yes, Lindsay Lohan used to be my idol), IT WOULD BE TO HAVE A JOB THAT I LOVE. AM IN LOVE WITH. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. I know they exist so give me a @#$%^&* change! I know you can hear me!

i'll met-cha a billion dollar$.

Seriously.Definition of pulling out all the stop. I love the long, flowing, Grecian, tan skin, brilliant baubles. I love it all. Camillia, Sienna, and SJP are definitely my favorite. The theme of the 2010 Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala Benefit was "American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity." And was hosted by Gap, Oprah, and Vogue editrix Anna Wintour. I loved seeing the high fashion designs of prominent designers for Gap, althought Jessica Alba's Sophie Theallat frock for Gap freaked me out - or maybe it was her hair.
