R.I.P. Eartha Kitt

Eartha Kitt, American actress, singer, and cabaret star died yesterday at age 81. She was best known for her song "Santa Baby" and her role as Catwoman on the 1960's Batman TV series.


♥♥♥♥


Academy Award-winning American director Orson Welles once called her the "most exciting woman in the world". Her persona is that of the ultimate

femme fatale. Readers may recognize her in the movie Holes as Madame Zeroni.

Eartha Kitt spoke out admirably on controversial issues, often doing performances for the benefit of HIV/AIDS research. She even caused a stir when she ma

de anti-war statements during a White House luncheon with Lady Bird Johnson 1968.


"I am a mother and I know the feeling of having a baby come out of my gut. I have a baby and then you send him off to war. No wonder the kids rebel and take pot." --Eartha Kitt


♥♥♥♥



Eartha was known for her striking looks, a mixture of her African, Cherokee, and German descent. However, she has said, I have never thought of mys

elf as a race. I have always thought of myself as a communicator who has no race”.


♥♥♥♥


She was nominated twice for Broadway's Tony Award: in 1978, as Best Actress (Musical) for "Timbuktu!"; and in 2000, as Best Actress (Featured Role - Musical) for "The Wild Party."



♥♥♥♥


“I do not have an act. I just do Eartha Kitt. Eartha Kitt is my act and I am still learning from her. Not that I want to be perfect. I do not believe in perfection. What do you do with perfection? I want to be whoever Eartha Kitt is until the gods take me wherever they take me.”


Damn. Fabulous.


♥♥♥♥

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays yo :]

Pink and Black

Pink and black: a fabulous combination. It's the perfect visual mix of tough and girly. I'm so into it right now. Probably because of my new hair ;]

Here's a few ways that I would love to wear it.




What color combinations are you feelin' right now?

Shoes :]

I heard through the grapevine that a girl in my school said I had the coolest shoes and was at the "top of the shoe list." Best. Compliment. Ever. hahaha

Yes, I am particularly obsessed with shoes. Here's one of my polyvore shoe collages of what I love right now.


Hmm, I'm sensing a few similarities here...perhaps I should search for a pair of pink and black polka dotted high top sparkly heels to purchase?!

Hairupdate :]

I was getting really bored with my hair, so I decided to change a few things. I got a slightly different cut, re-dyed it and added a pink streak! I love it. What do you think?

Sorry for the terrible pictures, haha.







Style Crush: Lady Gaga

I love Lady Gaga.
 Her music videos have an awesome dance party vibe; her style is futuristic with a touch of 80's. Lady Gaga has fantastic makeup...and so much glitterrrrrr! Also, her lightning bolt symbol is awesome.


I officially have a style crush on her.

She's in New York on December 31. I sooo want to see her live. That would be the coolest New Year's Eve dance party ever.

Also, I love this video. Why don't I get invited to parties like that? haha ;]

What do you think of Lady Gaga? And who is your style crush this week? :]

What I Wore!


This is what I wore to my admissions interview at Parsons School of Design. :]

I was super-nervous, but acted enthusiastic and put-together. I don't want to say anything yet, but I think it went okay.



I always wear a hat when I want to be noticed or remembered!

Do you have a particular item that you like to wear when you want to be remembered?
