L.A.M.B, D&B, Coach, Marc...

so word on the street today kids is that mama got a job at NORDSTROM. sales-girl in the handbag dept. sounds sassy. watch out fellow sales-girls, i arrive in peace, but also TO OUTSELL YOU.

in honor of the new job at my life-long mecca for the ultimate experience in fashion, luxury, and feeling fabulous, i am dedicating this post to the 2009 FALL MUST HAVES. but not just any fall must haves, LINDSEY'S FALL MUST HAVES. listen up and pay attention peeps.

#1. over-the-knee boots. they are EVERYWHERE. you will NOT be able to avoid them this fall.

#2. a faithful booty. choose a pair that is unique to your style.

#3. hot pink. don't ask questions. just do it.

#4. pretty blouses with pretty bows. and the great thing about this piece is that you can achieve almost any look you are going for just by switching up the print or color on the blouse!

#5. gray accessories. purses. headbands. boots. booties. heels. flats.

#6. plaid. duh. were any of you really surprised? plaid is the go-to fall staple that every girl should have in her closet. but this year you should be reinventing this basic fall essential by wearing it long over leggings, under some faux fur, and paired with some fab booties or over-the-knee boots (see above and below).

#7. a pair of leather leggings. real leather leggings (as shown here) will run you a pretty penny ($500+ to be exact) so ZARA.addict suggests scouting out some faux.

#8. a pair of harem pants as worn here by kim kardashian

#9. a leather statement piece such as this cropped faux leather jacket (recently purchased by none other than yours truly).

#10. last but certainly not least, any sort of faux fur vest/jacket/shawl/scarf to top-off a perfect fall ensemble.

and there you have it kids. ten pieces that must be in each and every one of your wardrobes this fall! that is, only if you want to be as hot as ZARA.addict... :)

the vmas makes me want to dance


so i was a little disappointed with some things that came as a byproduct of this years' vmas.

first off, russell brand. some things that were said in his vma opener speech were totally and completely inappropriate. and this is coming from a girl who is considered the most inappropriate in a group of all non-mormon friends! first of all, it just bugs the shiz out of me when celebs talk politics. for realz. one of my biggest pet peeves of all time. just because you are on stage does not entitle you to worship the president as if he were a god or declare that socialized healthcare is the one thing the US needs to make it as good as the UK. also, comments made about katy perry, lady gaga, and megan fox, really just made we want to puke.

moving on. kanye. you're a jerk. get a life. has anyone else besides myself ever compared kanye to spencer of the hills??? i think they're both hilarious, entertaining, and completely genius because they purposely act over-the-top to draw attention to themselves and to gain even more fame. and it works. brilliant. but kanye, what you did was still incredibly rude and shows absolutely no manners, or morals for that matter, on your behalf.

lady gaga. did anyone else find her performance a little bit creepy or the slightest horrific? i'm sorry, i just don't handle blood well, or sickness, injuries, death etc. this performance was just a little bit much.

why did eminem win best hip-hop video? he's just so white-trash!

why was kristin cavallari sent out to present as the one rep for the hills? doesn't somebody who's been on the hills for at least the past year or deserve that privilege a little more? or maybe its just that kristin is the only attention whore remaining? is that even possible with when speidi still remain members of the cast?

where were ri-ri, britney spears, and the black-eyed peas??? and for heaven's sake, WHY. DID. THEY. NOT. PERFORM???!!!

last but not least of the disappointments was provided by lady gaga, who, after winning breakout artist of the year, dedicated her moon man to "god and the gays". i'm not trying to say anything is wrong with this statement, just a little awkward is all.


first off, that michael jackson dance tribute was THRILLING (no pun intended). truly amazing. and the cherry on top was the wrap-up with janet jackson performing her duet Scream alongside the music video featuring MJ. was i the only one in tears by the end?

LOVED beyonce's performance of Single Ladies. As well as her incredibly classy award dedication to taylor swift. beyonce is not always my fav because sometimes i feel she's a bit fake but genuine or not, what she did truly was generous and kind. good political move on her part?

Muse. I LUF THEM. 'nough said. when can i see them in concert again???

Lastly, the awards could not have ended with a more perfect performance. i LOVE this song by jay-z and alicia keys and it couldn't have been more fitting for the awards!


i officially want to be a dancer so i can booty drop it like beyonce and don't stop til' i get enough like MJ.

i'm extremely excited for the two-part oprah-whitney houston interview that starts tomorrow. anybody else with me???

currently listening to Whitney Houston's new cd I Look to You, i found this gem of a song (as fellow blogger/friend burntmustard would say): "I Didn't Know My Own Strength".

take a peek (and learn a little portuguese too!) as always, brought to you in form of a techno remix (one of my greatest pleasures in life):

for those of you who know me and know what i've been through this past year should be able
to see how this relates to my life and just why I have coined it my theme song of the moment!
(refer to my first post of the year in case you need to refresh your memory.)

good news is that i have now realized i am MUCH stronger than i ever thought i was. i also
know that i am capable of so many things and have such a grand potential that i would have
NEVER realized had i not been through what i went through.

Moral of the story is: i had to go through shit to know my own strength :)
