Bre's Week In Links/Instagrams 12-21-12

Jade met Santa, but was unamused, haha! Excuse my rain-drenched hair!

Or not.

I missed last week's Links post, but you guys really didn't miss out on much. What WAS awesome was checking out Jello Underground's last show of the year at Spitfire last Saturday, which my friend Sarah is a part of (a.k.a. "Cotton Candy Queen"). She almost took the whole goddamn title, but it was a tie, then a super close final match and the newcomer won (photos, slightly NSFW!). Still, SUCH entertainment! The next show will be at the Rendevous on January 12th. I highly recommend it, you can get advance tickets through Brown Paper Tickets :D

Other than that, I've been running back and forth to EvCC trying to get my financial aid sorted, taking Jade to meet Santa (who is really Terry's uncle, haha!), just cranked out three commissioned slouchy hats in two days (!!!), and I'm looking forward to hanging out with Chev, Ryan and Stef tonight! It's been a while!



 This editorial in Bullet Magazine is pretty sweet in a slightly spooky sort of way. Totally love it.

 The Hundreds x Cool World collab! Do you guys remember this movie? I was waaayyyy too young to have seen it at 8 years old, but I was totally obsessed with Holli Would! Viva la '90s!!!

 Buffalo has teamed up with Solestruck. *dead*

 These calendars featuring animals photoshopped into celebs is way too hilarious!

 This metallic Sharpie nail art is awesome! Can't wait to try!

Jade was cute.
...A LOT.

Until next week! Should have an onslaught of holiday photos for you to roll your eyes at! WOOO!

Music Monday #53 - No Doubt

Man, I have no idea what happened to No Doubt/Gwen Stefani between 1999 and now, but I'll be very blunt: with the exception of a handful of solo songs, I don't like it. No sir. The Tragic Kingdom and Return of Saturn albums were the best, hands down. Little Bre's No Doubt addiction had already been in full-force since 1996, but I remember seeing this music video at the tender age of 14 and being completely blown away. THAT HAIR. THAT MAKEUP. It was pretty much life-altering for me. How times have changed...

Knockoff Ninja #29 - UNIF "Hellbound"

UNIF "Hellbound" in Black available at Tilted Sole ($225.00), Miss KL ($242.00) Solestruck ($244.95), Nasty Gal ($245.00)
Black Lace Chunky Heel Ankle Boot in Black/Black available at SammyDress ($23.95), Ebay ($52.77)
Chic Nubuck Lace Up Chunky Heel Booties in Black available at SammyDress ($35.70), Ebay ($52.77), Aliexpress ($52.99)

WHOA. WHOOOOOAAAA. These are both amazing! It's too bad I'm so wary of buying shoes overseas because the risk of the shoe not running true to size is too great, and sending them back would be a NIGHTMARE! If these weren't overseas, I'd probably have had them by last week. And the first dupes! All the goodness of the Hellbound, PLUS a sexy lace overlay? Man, I need these!

The only thing that sucks about these boots and asian apparel sites in general is that shoe sizes always seem to stop at 8. Lucky for me, I'm an 8, but it's super unfair for the majority of the people I know :c So, you've been warned about that.

I've been sitting on these guys for weeks, waiting patiently for a review that indicates how these fit and how comfortable they are, but still, nothing :c Come on, small-footed friends! Be my guinea pigs, hahaha!

What do you think? Are these awesome, or are they awesome?!

UPDATE: I did end up buying these, and they run pretty true to size, but a tad on the tight side. That could also be because my feet are slightly wide. But MAN, are they comfy! If you've been thinking about getting these, go for it! The quality isn't amazing, but I still recommend 'em!

Bre's Week In Links/Instagrams 12-7-12

I'm up WAAAYYYY past my bedtime to write this out at the last minute, as usual. But I have good reason, I was busy doing other stuff:

I got all my financial aid sorted out at EvCC today and was able to register for my graphic design classes! Although, I just found out I still need to take my COMPASS test, 'cause I never had to take it for my online medical coding program. I'll take care of that on Monday, most likely. But I'm super excited to go to ACTUAL college and already started up an Amazon wishlist full of the textbooks I need, plus pens and a fancy backpack. SO EXCITED to study something I actually love!

Saturday night I was actually able to go out for drinks (well, I had soda) with my friend Sarah I kept referring to. The one I had the nasty falling out with. SO MUCH EFFING FUN. It was crazy because we were never able to go bar-hopping before, since she was 18 when we "split". Shouted at each other over bad karaoke at a stinky dive in Arlington before deciding to move the party to Razzals, where some pretty intoxicated guys invited us to sit with them. Most hilarious encounter ever; more discussion about beard smells than any other group of people have had, I'm sure! Hoping to do it again soon. That girl is such a blast <3

 Twinkie Chan has an adorable gummy bear crochet pattern up at!

 Elizabeth delves into the 'taboo' subject of blog monetization.

 What IS the deal with open-toed booties? I personally can't stand them! They defeat the whole purpose of boots!

 Holiday gifts for the pessimist in your life <3

 The girls at A Beautiful Mess are giving away $1,000 to Miss KL. A THOUSAND DOLLARS.

 Love Heidi Klum's costume here. HOLY BUFFALO SHOES!!!


Here's my second t-shirt surgery from last week! I can't stop wearing it!
My naked reindeer Jade!
Sarah and I are reunited after a stupid five year catfight. Yes, really <3 We are a colorful duo among Arlington folk, garnering many looks, haha!
Errands face.
Until next week!

Knockoff Ninja #28 - Jeffrey Campbell "Homg Stud"

Jeffrey Campbell "Homg Stud" in Black Suede available at Solestruck ($134.95), Jildor Shoes ($135.00)

?? "Taylor-01" in Black available at UrbanOG ($37.20)

What an awesome dupe! I can only spot three differences: the rubber sole is a bit shinier on the UrbanOG shoe, the upper material is faux leather instead of suede, and the studs aren't as even. A big deal? Hell no. I think these are fabulous. Love this little nod to club kid culture! They're also available in Taupe Suede with Rose Gold studs, which are just as good!

1. L.A.M.B. "Minny" in Black Leather $269.95 $179.95 (7.5, 8)
2. Jeffrey Campbell "Foxy Spike" in Red Nubuck $174.95 $114.95 (7, 9.5)
3. Jeffrey Campbell "Vicious" in Black Pink $209.95 $134.95 (5-9)
4. Jeffrey Campbell "Prickly" in Fuchsia Suede $219.95 $149.95 (5-8.5, 10)

6. Jeffrey Campbell "Damsel Spike" in White $219.95 $149.95 (sizes 5,6,7,9)

So, I swear I never set out to make this collection color-coordinated in any way. So, that's weird how that worked out. HA! These are all still pretty steep money-wise for someone like me, but they are still pretty deeply discounted! Get 'em while they last!
