Bre's Week in Links/Instagrams 10-26-12

Source: ...every meme site, ever?
 These Winter '12 Giuseppe Zanottis are NUTS.

 Girls with glasses <3

 Some of Kate Gabrielle's "Flapper Doodle" series has made it onto! How exciting!

 Business books Kaelah swears by. Totally eyeballing those Kari Chapin books.

 Molly wrote an awesome piece about the common misconception that cosplayers are asking to be sexually harassed.


 Curried pumpkin soup? Uhhh... yesplz.

 An old favorite for making eyes pop. This is especially useful now that my hair is red! Green or turquoise lower liner looks INSANE now.

This "Add A Cat" app is killing me!
Best mints ever. Found while cleaning for Chev last Friday.
Obligatory shot from Chev's chair. I went red! AHHHH it's so much brighter in person, like kool-aid red. My phone just won't capture it, even with this gnarly filter on :/
Found this at the Evergreen Asian Market in South Everett. Control the popular vogue? Ummm... okay! SOLD! #engrish
That's all for this week! I've got a few things happening this weekend, today it's just random errands and cleaning for Chev, as usual, but on Saturday it looks like Terry and I are gonna head up to Stanwood for some Halloween party shenanigans at our friends Dave and Erin's! Woohoo! We never get to see anyone up north anymore :c Bustin' out the trusty ol' Hipster Ariel getup, but I've got to pick up a different top. Too damn cold for that tiny crocheted bikini top, haha!

Did you vote yet?!

Knockoff Ninja #22 - Jeffrey Campbell "Damsel Spike"

Jeffrey Campbell "Damsel Spike" in Black available at Solestruck ($189.95), Envi Shoes ($209.95)
Vintage "Berkeley-02" in Black available at AMI Clubwear ($40.99), ZooShoo ($46.00)

Every week, I have a particular shoe I'm lusting after and keep adding to my shopping cart and just letting it sit there until I make up my mind (or the best coupon code rolls around). The Berkeley-02s are this week's obsession. Now, all things considered, these really aren't that bad. While the height appears to be about an inch and a half off, the overall shape is basically the same. The sparse studs leave a little bit to be desired, but I can't think of a reason why you couldn't stick a few more in there to even it out. And if I can say one thing from experience about the brand "Vintage", it's that their faux leather is super high quality. Just wish these were taller!

So, what do you think? Yay or nay?

Music Monday #46 - Deftones

One track mind this week, haha!

It could have been how gorgeous this song is, or it could have been the copious amounts of alcohol coursing through my bloodstream, but this song totally broke me at the show last weekend. Go ahead and imagine little ol' Bre bawling by the merch booth to this song. It's actually really funny in hindsight :D I can't believe they even played this song, it was goddamn amazing.

Bre's Week In Links/Instagrams 10-19-12

How did Adventure Time become better than most live-action tv shows? Seriously, that last episode was pretty crazy. The backstory is getting super involved.

Nubby visited that crazy rainbow hotel in Palm Springs. So gorgeous.

Kelsea went and met Twinkie Chan in Seattle last weekend! I wanted to go so bad, but unfortunately, it conflicted with seeing the Deftones :c

 Speaking of Twinkie Chan, she has the most adorable tutorial for a crochet ribcage and heart t-shirt.



HOW did this land someone on my blog?! Wait... I don't even want to know.
Jade sharing his juice with the turtle :3
Pre-Deftones. Wewt.
This greek pizza at Hooverville before the Deftones was SO amazing. I ate it pretty much to myself D:
Jade relaxing in a beanbag.
All for this week! Later tonight, I'll be making a drastic change to my hair by way of the lovely Chivahn, so I'll assault your eyeballs with that next week :P OMGICAN'TWAAAAIIIIITT.

Knockoff Ninja #21 - Ash "Dean"

Ash "Dean" in Black/Silver Studs available at Solestruck ($384.95)

Bamboo "Italo-01" in Black available at YCMC ($39.99), GoJane ($41.80), UrbanOG ($43.90), Make Me Chic ($44.60)

These beauties were brought to my attention by my friend Chivahn, who has been mercilessly obsessing over them for what seems like months. I finally thought I'd try to track down a decent replica, and came across Bamboo's "Italo-01". Not too bad! I'm even considering a pair for myself since they add an effortless 'edge' and look so comfy. Not to mention there is no way in HELL I can afford the Dean's near $400 price tag! The studs are similarly placed (albeit lacking the random round studs) and the straps are pretty close. The only huge difference I can see is the heel and sole, which is shorter in the replica and also brown instead of black, and the overall height of the Italo-01 is shorter. But really, not bad. I'll give 'em a B.

What do you think? Are they close enough, or are you still holding out for the real thing?

Bre's Week In Links/Instagrams 10-12-12

Found on Tumblr. So really, a source is irrelevant :/

If this is legitimate, this is totally fascinating and a huge breakthrough! Stem cell discovery will allow gay men to create own eggs for surrogate birth!

The best of the '80s comes alive by way of Gaultier <3

 Saturn Return, eh? Pretty fascinating stuff. Mine starts next February. I'M SCARED. When's yours?

Loving these monster booties from ShoeDazzle.

 If I had a dog, you bet your sweet ass I'd make it wear this awesome triceratops headpiece! Hell, I may even make Jade wear it!

 I had a total fangirl moment when Tanja unveiled this AMAZING look inspired by 2D from Gorillaz! I LOVE GORILLAZ SO MUCH.

 Molly is giving away a pair of Blowfish shoes on her blog! GOGOGOOOO!

My nearly non-existent lashes need all the help they can get, and this little curling trick has totally helped this past week!

 Stef has been one of my favorite people on the ol' internetz for over a decade now, and this 'Coming Out Day'-inspired article about coming to grips with her sexuality is an awesome read <3

Deftones are here Saturday AHHHHHHHH!!!
Lookit how big my boy is getting! LOOKIT.
Whipping up a crapload of boot toppers/cuffs in various sizes and a few colors. Should be up on Etsy by next week!
