All in a days work

One of the ways I get clothes (besides hooking) is trading in my old clothes at those trading stores. Where I live we have Crossroads and Freestyle (but I hate Crossroads only for their terrible customer service). They are like Plato's Closet and Buffalo Xchange. What I like about Freestyle is that they have a vintage section. That way I'm able to take my thrifted goods in. Sometimes I even flip a profit, if I bought a skirt for 99 cents, and they sell it at 8 dollars, they give me 4 dollars in trade. Im such a tricky bitch. I traded in some items and got all 3 of these items in one day. I somehow thought they went together.


This hat is vintage and so warm. 


Yay life is so fun. Be a clown.


hat, dress, and shoes -Freestyle


My customers are going to love these.

  16. you're hilarious. "be a clown" hahah. i love your vintage hat here. is it itchy? keep selling your used clothes and maybe you won't have to turn tricks anymore. reach for the stars, mija.

    (i don't need to point out my sarcasm to you, right? ;) )

  17. Before I start bitching about how evil Google+ is, I want to talk about what you're wearing. I REALLY like this dress. I'm trying not to use the word love to describe how I feel about clothes, but then I see something like this and I just have to say it. I love your dress! I broke my promise just for you. The style and print is just right and it accentuates your small waist. Bravo! Add this to the list of things to sell me when you tire of them.

    Now for the bitching. When I first heard of Google Plus or Google + (whatever the fuck it is) it wasn't very popular. Nobody wanted to use it. I did some reading on it a few months ago and found out that it is kind of a bad idea for privacy. Google doesn't give a crap about your privacy to begin with (and they censor everything they feel like censoring), but Google Puto/Google Plus takes the cake (all of your personal emails from gmail are being saved by their data base for some stupid reason). I also cannot stand that they are pretty much forcing all of their GFC users to make the switch. That's like tearing someone's house down and telling them that they can move if they want to. I'm going to wait this out and see what happens. If not I'll join Bloglovin and switch to Tumblr.

  18. Btw, I don't know if I already told you but your bangs are PERFECT! I wish I could pull off that blunt bangs look. I think it's safe to say that your bangs are bangin.' ;) Have a good Hump Day!!

  21. In response to one of your other comments: I too get those weirdos who search for my blog. One person found my blog by searching "Vintage pussy lips." WTF. I was wearing a VINTAGE purse with a PUSSY bow top and mac on my LIPS. I also get those people with default pics of their clams and chi chis. Do you? It's like...um...ok...but they're not going to find anything pornographic on my bloggy. Sorry, pervs!

  23. I'm not stalking you lol but I want to ask you something.

    For the past 2 or 3 months, people I know (including myself) have had this happen to them. Whenever you make a call to anyone on any phone and you mention that you or someone you know are going to Mexico, within 1-3 hours, you get a call from a random person who claims that they are related to you. They then try to convince you that they are related to you and end up asking for money. They're scammers and they sound super ghetto when they talk.

    Have you or anyone you know had this happen to you? This is the third time it has happened to people I know. It just happened to me today and it freaked me out. It's like they are tapping the phones of everyone. I don't understand how that happens!!
