Five Questions for My Favorite Bloggers

Who are you?

I'm Alicia! I'm an internet info-hoarder, blogger, and I sell jewelry on the side.

Where are you?

At present, I'm stuck in an office building in Los Angeles...gotta love the day job. It's precisely why I'm an internet info-hoarder, blogger, and selling jewelry on the side.

What is the concept behind your blog?

Honestly, I wouldn't say there's a cut and dry concept; it's just a collective of stuff I like played out in pictures and writing with a bit of irreverence, the obligatory outfit posts and a fair amount of profanity. that a concept? Because if that's a concept, then that's my concept.

When you are not blogging, what else do you enjoy doing?

Aside from working on stuff for my Etsy store and Talonalia, I like to canoodle with Dudeguy, hang out with my friends, go shopping/thrifting, talk nonsense on Twitter, and watch RuPaul's Drag Race. I have an unyielding love for trannies. Really.

I'm also working on getting better at photography. It's a hobby now, but I'd like to get to the point where someone would hire me...even if I was getting paid in Orbit gum or magazines or some other form of bartered good. Right now, I'm using my 365 Project to get in shape.

There also may or may not be lots of time spent on trying to train my army of cats to do anything besides eating and sleeping. These pursuits have been largely unsuccessful.

More importantly, what are you wearing?

A teal Thakoon dress I got off of eBay for $50 (!!!), my vintage black leather bomber jacket, and some black patent wingtips.

Thanks for the interview, Alicia! NYFW coverage kicks off tomorrow... So stay tuned!

I like Alicia's blog very much!! But haven't left any comments yet :) I can remember my first visit on her blog. When I visited now I was so happy to see she did a posting about Catherine Baba as well :-D Ok. That's a sign of coincidence!
I love that picture of Alicia and her Spongebob mug!! When it's really cold and the coffee is really hot I'm getting the same effect when wearing my glasses XD
have a fab fun day, dear Deanne!
