ALISON WONDERLAND trap, hip hop and bass DJ set in The Lab LA and the show I went to...



Last summer I had the chance to listen to whatever music I wanted practically all the time again and I started playing tons of techno, or EDM (electronic dance music), as it's now called---because I'm old or whatever.  One of the first new sets I heard was by Alison Wonderland.  She's a female DJ who also trained as a classical musician, a trained cellist.

This set by her literally blew my mind and I would play it daily.  I still probably play it at least once a week a year later.  



It's also one of the sets my boyfriend, who was just a buddy at the time, became obsessed with when I had him listen to it.  He may also be slightly obsessed with AW herself because she's kind of gorgeous and awesome and her style is DOPE!!!
PLEASE NOTE THE OLD SCHOOL ADIDAS TEE AND BLACK OVER THE KNEE SOCKS!!!!
This is straight up 90s old school style and how I also like to dress sometimes, so I am kind of crazy about her, too.  More of this style will be discussed later.
So, since I live in Asheville, which is a super liberal cool town, there are a lot of hippie types.  I'm into it---just not like a total granola girl.  I told Candyman, my friend at the time, we're gonna see this chick in concert and we're gonna find some friends that like EDM.  It's not the popular thing here, but we like it and we're here, so there must be others like us!!!  We will root them out.
And also we will see AW play live next year in 2016.  #GOALS  (More on this later because there is actually more...)
At the time it seemed rather unlikely because she played big shows in Australia and like the West Coast and stuff.
Fast forward about 6 months to my birthday, January 2016, and my bestie is in town and we're all hanging out celebrating and I am SOOOO HAPPY and all the sudden I decide to google Alison Wondeland because it's January of 2016 and I REMEMBER saying I'm gonna see this girl spin this year.  I pull up her concert venues and she's playing huge events everywhere.  Massive shows in major cities.  But, she's also playing The Orange Peel in Asheville in February 2016---in about 4 weeks.  It's a small but amazing venue in downtown Asheville.  Less than 2 miles from my house.  Tickets were $16.  I can def afford $16 ticket at a little venue less than 2 miles from my house!!  One 2016 goal done!

We had such a great time.  My bff came back to town for the show and Candyman's son met us there...  He is called Mr. P.S.B.  (Mister Pretty Sleepy Baby) aptly named by Savory C for his proclivity to sleep on the couch and look pretty and be a bit of a baby even though he is 17.
It was a great night.


My Ebay bought Adidas tracksuit that I first clocked in this ad and went nuts over.  Found it cheap separately on Ebay and was like ANOTHER DREAM REALIZED!!!  lolol



Got it!!!!  For cheap, too :)


Happy!!  Luv these faces.

Candyman and me...  My crew name is FancyBoy.  


Cute collage of pics from the night.  Candyman made it bcuz I'm not talented with the photos as u well know.  My green shell toes were a Christmas present from him last year and I don't want to shock u, but these green shell toes go with practically everything.  I feel like my face looks weird in the pic at the top right.

Anyways, this was a pretty good memory from February <3
Hooking up to Patti's Visible Monday!!!

Love & Light,

The only class I have...

are these 2 class rings!!!

Pointer finger has the bf's class ring on it.  We went to the same high school and the mascot was a cowboy.  Back in the day he used to have 2 guns, but PC kicked in and they unarmed him...  This class ring still has the original cowboy mascot with the guns lolol.
I keep a stacker ring on top because it's loose.  Middle finger is a vintage 90s poison ring and my ring fingers are also my 90s rings that I wear together.  Somehow managed not to lose these.  I've lost 2 fav rings recently and a toe ring.  It's miserable to lose your fav jewelry.   Thumb ring is just a modern retail one.


Ring finger is vintage.  Middle finger is my mother's class ring from '69 and the pointer is a 90s silver ring recently bought in Florida.   Thumb ring is my mother's wedding ring that she gave me after my father passed away and I never take it off.  Pinky ring is costume from my bf that he found.



 Wearing a vintage 90s sheer Body Central brand top that is sort of Mondrian inspired print.  Vintage 80s black and gold leather belt.  Retail black stretchy skinny pants.



My 70s vintage thrifted studded black polyester jacket that I've been wearing since the 90s.  A lot of my old staples on today at once.


The back!


2 necklaces.  My bf's insanely awesome silver necklace that I wear like everyday and a vintage scorpion necklace.


I love scorpions.  People always ask me...  Are you a Scorpio?  And I'm like, NO.  But I am deadly.
LOLOL  



Retail leather boots with gold accents that I've worn to pieces, but just love.


Distresses leather is the best.

We'll just leave this as a simple OOTD post.  Nothing too complicated.  It's late.  My mom is in town visiting.  I've eaten too much fried chicken and french fries.  Time for bed.  SATURDAY NIGHT PEOPLE mf Saturday night!

Love & Light,
Becky

Game Day & Tiger Bay Cafe

Sooooooooo, today was a big game day.  Liverpool vs. Sevilla and my boy's team lost :(

He is a big time soccer fan.  More on that later, but let's just say he was super stoked and looking forward to this game.  He wore his vintage 1991 Liverpool jersey in anticipation.  Looking super fine if I do say so myself.  He'd probably say it too, tho.



Before the game we decided to pop out for lunch.  We have a pretty tight budget, so we picked a really reasonable little lunch spot we'd both been wanting to try.  It's a combo coffee bar & cafe.

It's called BattleCat Coffee Bar.  I've had the coffee and stuff, but never eaten at the little cafe inside, called Tiger Bay Cafe.


It has a super lovely outdoor area


We headed straight through to the back to Tiger Bay Cafe since we were starved! 



We got the Smoked Chicken Salad Wrap & the Chicken Avacodo Panini.  It was like $16 or something including a 20% tip.



The super cute staff let me take her pic!  She had a lovely accent and when I accidentally gave her my old bank card and it got declined, she insisted I cut it up immediately so I wouldn't keep making the same mistake lololol!!!!  She grabbed the scissors and was basically helping me live my life!!  The bf----who I like to call "CandyMan" (mf eats a LOT of candy) was like, "I've been trying to get her to do that FOREVER!"
Srsly tho...  U think I'm gonna listen to him?  I did what the cute cafe lady asked immediately hahahaha!!!!!


 One thing I love about Asheville is all the art.  I've mentioned before it's been called 'The Paris of the South' and is a huge haven for artists.  Many small local biz support local artists and have a lot of displays.


Cute little spaces to eat and hang in here!!



This is the BattleCat area in the front where you can grab coffee and beer and stuff among other refreshments.











You know how it goes with the phone pics!!!  So sorry for the poor quality, but I think you get the gist.
The day was so lovely we obvi sat outside.  This is bae b4 he knew his team would lose.


He drank an IPA.  I think it was 2 Hearted...   And I drank a Crispin Cider.


We split our meals bcuz we like to share and get to taste more stuff.  Both were SOOOOO delish.  I think the Chicken Avacodo Panini was my fav this round tho, but I wouldn't say no to the Smoke Chicken Wrap!!!


ALWAYS HOT SAUCE!!!!!


On the way home we stopped at Ingles and I grabbed guess what???  Some more hot sauce!!  This is a local Asheville made sauce called Firewalker Hot Sauce that I really like a lot.  So does my bff Sam.  Sam and I first had it over cheese sticks at a local pub.  CandyMan claims it's not hot enough so I guess the whole bottle is for me and my girl if there is any left when she gets here for another visit.


Off to check out what everyone else is up to!!!

Love & Light

Goodiessss

All da goodiesssssss!!!

Just lots of random old and newer IG post featuring a ton of vintage/gifted/handmade accessories and outfits!!!







These pics start off around the end of last summer until just recently---skipping a lot of winter lolzzz!!  Winter fashion kinda sucks.

Also, paperwork sucks.
Also, budgeting sucks.  I might need an actual budget.  Or like an allowance.  OMG I just realized I basically just need to be adopted by rich parents!!!  Like, an older rich couple that regrets their decision to not have children, but realize they actually DO want to be parents after all!
I would just like to add that I'm not biased---you don't have to be a couple!  I'll take a single parent, two moms, two dads...  Families come in all shapes and sizes!!  Send all application straight to the blog lololololol!!!!!

Love & Light
