Meeting the Parents

Such a “big deal” right? Nah. I’m good with parents…I think? Yesterday I (bought or) brought someone home…but first, the obligatory text warning my mom. See below:

Several things need to be addressed regarding our conversation above before I can move on:

1. Yes, my mom and I speak to one another like pre-teens, hence “Oh haiii” and “hoe”
2. No one says “wazzzz up” anymore…I will have to let ma know…
3. Happy she thought it was a puppy, but even more happy that she then realized who her daughter actually was…And that yes, I would buy shoes before a pet (Hey, I’m just not ready for that kind of responsibility, okay.)
4. Equally happy that my mom was willing to get dressed for someone…if it was an actual human (Sorry…not today…maybe one day?)
5. Truth Revealed and she writes back “Oh dear”. Perfection.

So here he is…this sexy man is all mine:

Naturally she found him to be good look and little overrated…which may or may not actually be the case with actual males I’ve brought home. Kidding, kidding. Anyways, here’s to a long lasting relationship.

Retiring the Ray-Bans (For Now)

I’m in love with my new sunnies.

Really, they’re perfect. Time to put the Ray-Bans away for a bit…

Livin’ at Home & Fallin’ Back with Accessories

As much as I love the summertime, I think fall is my second favorite season. The leaves start to change and it’s that time when you realize how quickly another year of your crazy life has flown by.

And so here is my latest “rent”…or purchases, if you will. As of lately, I’ve really been into accessories….hence the babies down below.

The Perks of Living at Home, Part 3


For only $200 bucks…the price of gasoline to and fro work not included…

So, instead I bought this, and by this, I mean multiple things…because the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is currently happening…and I have no self control (an obvious one…)

And although I have never been good at math…I do know what this totals to:

A very happy Vaneza who will live at home…for (at least) another month.

The Perks of Living at Home, Part 2

You can actually afford to buy new clothes…monthly, errr weekly (and unfortunately or fortunately daily depending on how you look at it)…Case in point: 3 new pieces. I love the simple femininity of the white dress, the sheerness/length of the black one, and how ridiculously soft the camel sweater is…I can see myself tossing that sweater in my car and putting it over practically anything and everything I’m wearing when the temperature in LA starts to drop.

So given that that former perk is an obvious one (duh)…There also comes another…Having a stylish mom who cleans her closet (and not often enough as far as I am concerned…) and BOOM! One man’s trash suddenly becomes another (daughter’s) treasure. Mom found her vintage Versace belt…and I gladly took it. See:

How amazing would it look with the black number above? Very.
