Dear Diary...

Sorry it's been a while since I know with the upcoming nuptuals and all, things can get a little hectic. Even when we aren't together you are still on my mind...kind of like Dierks Bentley...oops did I just say that..he's totally gross. But that's only if gross means Hottie McHotterson. So in that sense, I also think that Rachel Bilson is like totally gross. So can I just hurry and look like her already please?
Stay Cool...KIT.

Love Always,

The Barefoot Bride

one man's trash... usally just trash...but in some situations can be a whole lot more. Take Ebay for instance, a sometimes widely under-used resource for quality fashion goods. Some poeple are totally against pre-owned merchandise. They think it's gross and wierd and get all freaked out. I mean I would understand that if you were trying to buy like crotchless panties on ebay or something, or picking up your skivies from Goodwill, but we are talking pre-used premium denim here. There should be no bodily fluids anywhere near those jeans...yah yah I know I could put that up for debate, but I'm trying to keep things PG-13 here.

Anyways, all I can say is, you are more likely to get a great deal on a lightly worn pair of pre-owned designer jeans than on a brand new pair because you are running a high risk of being bamboozeled. Yep I said it...bamboozeled. There are loads of people out there who will put a pic up of the product they are selling that they find on like shopbop or something and charge you full price, but then send you a completely bogus pair of jeans that look like something you bought at Rave. They think they have won because they have cleverly mimicked the design on the back pockets to immulate your favorite design duds, but don't be fooled by this lack-luster gesture, because right when you take a second look at the denim you will notice the very cheap material, and when you put them on, they will most likely be super short and made from a stretchy fabric that designer denim does not use, but cheap jeans are often cut from. They should also run very true to size, and when they are fake, they will run much too small. So take it from me, I've been there....running excitedly from the mailbox holding my "brand new with tags" True Religions I just bought for $125 on Ebay, and as I rip open the bag eagerly awaiting the moment our eyes meet, I am clearly diappointed when I put them on and they won't even fit over my thighs, and are still up to my ankles. Or better yet, I can get them over my butt and wrestle with them for 10 minutes until they are finally buttoned only to realize I have suddenly gained 15 pounds and somehow acquired a muffin top.

Plaid is Rad...A badass rhyme from DJ Al Smizzle

Look...don't get all mad, cause my rhymes are wicked bad, this is one thing that is stickin, it's not just a fad. Cause this plaid is smokin hot, yah this plaid is freaking cool, these shirts that I'm about to show, just might make you drool. So bookmarks these new looks, save those pennies til' they're enough, cause without this plaid attire, life's gonna get pretty rough. No you're not a lumber jack, just cause of your flannel shirt, but hey I guess you could go chop some wood, cause you'd look so good it'd hurt. So here you go my ladies...and hey even gentlemen too, I don't judge, you do your thing, just wear some plaid when you do.

All of these looks available at the the 1... aka Forever and all under $25!

Pimpin' Pumpkin Spice

So yesterday in Fresno was amazing. It was 65 degrees outside and the wind was blowing through my hair...which actually made it very frizzy and my face looked all pasty with red blotches....oh but I didn't care, no, because the feeling of that cold wind was like ecstasy to me. I long for the winter, so...longingly. I live for the winter, I cannot wait for the winter to be here already.

So now that today the weather is already back to being 85 degrees outside, I am left with a hole in my empty heart after the malicious tease of a day that so tortuously came...and then went yesterday. However I did take full advantage of that blustery day....with the oh so delictable selection of all things Pumpkin Spice. Just those two words together send chills of excitment down my spine, when it's usually just sweat that's dripping down my back. The candles, the lattes, and of course who can forget the coffee creamer that just came out. So yesterday was a bittersweet day because although I lit my delicious smelling Pumpkin Spice Candle (Nature's Wick Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake is so amazing I have to substain from actually licking it) and drank the uncomparable beverage known as Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte, I knew that it would all end...all too soon and I would be left once again waiting, longing, wishing for winter once again.

Wood Wick candles are awesome because they actually crackle when they burn... not to mention they smell like Heaven.

When..oh when will you be here my darling?

Can't you just taste it now?

These Boots Were Made for Walking

As much as I adore boots for the winter, I do not so much adore their price tags. A good solid genuine leather pair of knees high's can run you anywhere from $50 on up ( usually on the "on up" side). So here's how I justify purchasing said pair on "on uppers".... and believe me, I can justify the purchase of just about anything, from a ped-egg, to pajamas, to stationary from Papyrus, trust me, there is a use for everything, and I will find it. Moving back to my justification....there's the fact that I will get so much use out if them. I mean there's the simple truth that it's cold in the winter, and what better to warm up those perfectly ped-egged feet than a wondrous pair of leather boots. Here's a another one... you can where knee high boots for both work and play, because although they will undoubtedly look super amazing with your new skinny jeans, they will also look miraculous with a sweater dress and tights! I mean, seriously, it's a win win situation here. So stop deliberating and click "buy" already.

Surrender the Bootie

So my sister demanded that I find her these little booties at a more reasonable cost. She literally cornered me....grabbed me by the shirt collar.... yelled at me until I was reduced to tears....she's so mean. Although this may not be entirely true, she did ask me (nicely) if I maybe perhaps might be interested in finding something like this for her. So of course I obliged...but only because she kicked me in the shin and then spit in my eye....dang her.

Here is the one she wanted from Nordstrom...DV by Dolce Vida "Willy" Bootie $139.95

Kenneth Cole Reaction "Cold Stir" bootie $108.95

ME TOO "Jasmine" $98.95

Front Buckle Bootie- available in black too $24.50

Front Pintuck Bootie $26.50

For the Birthday Girl...

Just 23 short years ago on this very day, my parents brought home my baby sister and it was love at first sight. She was tiny and squishy, and had hair like a little dandelion. She remained nameless for the first three days of her existence on Earth, because I guess it was just too hard to find a name suitable for such an adorable little creation. However, my parents felt it only fair that they give her a name, and so they did what any respectable parents would do, they asked me, their 3 year old, what they should name her. "Christina" was my answer, and my dad was already hooked on Natalie because he thought Natalie Wood was beautiful, and thus she was dubbed, Natalie Christina.

Ever since my little darling came along, life has become less and less dull. She was always so tiny, and so skinny, and always had the longest thickest blond hair anyone had every seen. She would sing with a voice that should belong to a 400 pound opera singer, and was absolutely devoted to Barbie's. She once got a bead lodged in her nose at Indian Guides, flooded the bathroom because she was outside taking Barbie and Ken for a spin in their Corvette and forgot she was filling up the Barbie jacuzzi, oh and then there was the one time I decided to be her stylist and I chopped her bangs mom was super excited about it.

Needless to say I would do anything for my sis, and if I became a famous novelist, I would definitely buy her the best Birthday gifts in all the land. So here is what I would get you for your bday if I was rich. Get those Peach Margarita's ready for tonight.... oh and Happy Birthday Sister!

Chloe Sunglasses (because you lost yours)

L.A.M.B. Lambert tote ....cause you love yourself some LAMBy!

Rock and Republic Jolene T-strap pump cause you love your heels and you look HOT in them!

Foley + Corinna Ruffle Scarf Dress...I can totally see you wearing this and looking gorgeous!

So one of my amazing friends Victory requested that my next entry be a personal shopping list for her. Being that she always does nice things for me, and she's well, pretty awesome to say the least...I thought, hey, why not. Let me tell you a few things about her...she's well, a little vertically challenged, in a very cute, petite way, so I'm going to try and find her stuff that would work well for her body. Don't get me wrong, I'm not some glamazon super model here, I mean I'm only averaging a whopping 5'5, but next to Victory I feel a little Vince Vaughnish. Notice I didn't say Cameron Diaz, or Hiedi klum...I don't need that kind of ill-fated comparison looming over me. So for those of you who share her small stature, this one's for you my little Thumbelina.

I think this is so cute when paired with leggings and ballet flats. Now the good thing about being shorter is you can pull this look of with leggings and it will look more like a little sweater dress. Put a jean jacket on over it and watch out you come!

This little lady would be super cute with some dark wash skinny jeans (like J Brand) and a bright pop of color for shoes.

Ok these I have to include this, because for one I am loving white denim, for two we can wear them to work, and for three these J Brands are on sale for $89.50! Buy them! Do not pass go, do not collect $200! I also heard that the whole no white pants after Labor Day rule is being thrown out be the fashion powers that be...whoever they are. I would for sure be purchasing these little babies as we speak, but they are petite only...even more perfect for you guys though! I may only be 5'5, but I've got some long legs so the petites wouldn't so much work for mom always said that my dad wrestled a blue jay for his legs and my dad won. Then I was born.
this would look amazing with those white jeans! You could put a little little bomber jacket over too for winter...see the one above in "Baby It's Cold Outside."

Lashing Out

My brother has eyelashes like a baby being that I'm a female and he's not, I'm a little jealous, because frankly, I need those suckers and he doesn't. So in light of the fact that I wasn't born with exactly abundant lashes, I have spent much of my adult life trying every mascara on the market to imulate his insane lashes. So here are a few of my favs that really do me I've done the leg work...or would that be lash work?

Sue Devitt Black Widow...INSANE seperation. Thanks to one of my BF's Sarah for this tip!

Shu Uemura Ultimate Expression Mascara...serious volume and length

Imju Fiberwig...It actually attaches little extensions to your lashes!
