Rock of Jamie










I'm wearing a Norma Kamali for Walmart Dress (15 bucks baby)-- it was too long so I sliced it, Stuart Weitzman boots, (not pictured), and an amazing new necklace from an Israeli designer that my cousin gave me as a gift. I never take it off. I layered it with a cheap F21 chain that I picked up for $7. The belt is also from F21. It was part of a display, not for sale, and had no price tag. I convinced the sales girl to take it off the display and sell it to me. I snagged that baby for $11.

Thursday night, we celebrated my friend Jamie's birthday at the Empire Hotel. If you recognize her it's because she is from last season's Rock of Love Bus. It was fun watching the episodes with her as they aired. How insane are her shoes?!? I don't know how she was able to dance, let alone walk in those. She is an awesome chick, and we are both hard core rock and roll devotees. The blond is my best friend, and incredible musician, Alex. His talent blows me away. My friends have so many interesting projects in the works. I'll be sure to keep you all updated.

I am such a nerd because I did watch that show! She was the only normal one! maybe that is why Brett Michaels gave her the boot because he is a dumb ass. I hated how they made her out to be a groupie and all she did was love music and love live shows! Give her my love and a high five for not being a total idiot on that show!

Eri said...

What an amazing necklace, beautiful gift, I would not take it off either.
See you soon
Ps: Great pics.

E said...

Aw, I loved her on ROL! She looks like so much fun!
