Chasing Weiland: “It’s what made you who you were.”

Scott Weiland’s death devastated me. I grew up listening to Stone Temple Pilots. They were my first concert. In many ways, their music shaped the way I hear new music today, and, so often, a song builds my blogs.

I heard “Plush” while driving to work today, and it brought back so many memories. There is the innocent interpretation of “Plush,” and that is merely how the lyrics compel me to sing along. Have you ever heard this song while observing Karaoke? My husband sang it at my work’s holiday bash and it was a favorite!

Where ya going with that mask I found STP

Was it the lyrics that made my co-workers, and myself, sing along? “Where

“Where ya going with that mask I found?”

I’m wearing loads of stuff from Designer Showcase‘s January Collection (January’s round ends on January 31). Designer Showcase will be on a winter hiatus and close shop for February. So if there is anything you want to grab, do it before 1-31! When Designer Showcase is back up in March, expect a brand new location and feel!

Las Vegas Winters (What? No Snow?)

I swear my outfits go through this every winter. I’m a southwestern girl by heart, so my move from Albuquerque to Las Vegas kept me in warm winter weather. The only snow I really see is in Second Life!

Designer Showcase’s December Round has the best of both worlds as there is chic fall weather attire and cozy winter wear to choose from.
