Throwback Thursday: LA x Miami WMC

Los Angeles

I DON'T KNOW WHY I NEVER POSTED THIS AND IT'S BEEN SITTING IN MY DRAFTS FOR MONTHS

Jeni, Adrian, Dante, and I went to LA sometime in March. However we had some spare time so we met up with our fellow bay area companions who now reside in LA: Francis, Ant, Jordan, and Kitty while we were out there.  Damn near felt like a movie with those kids. I always tend to forget how awesome bay cats are. You know why? Because we literally don't party like your typical Americans. I feel like bay ppl are like always down to turn up and act a fool no matter time of day. You know our style... like gig/dance/talk that bay lingo only we understand. But what was interesting that I noticed is that LA's night life is so different. Like people don't like to dance, they kind of just sit around in their bottle service booth and just straight flex. Last summer I went to a Do Over party in LA and I was with my girls going dumb at our table... And a group of dudes tapped my shoulder and said "y'all are from the bay huh" I simple replied yup. And he responded "i can tell by the way you girls dance." Hahah. Anyway on our last night Francis through a ratchet function/small get together at his apartment after we got Korean BBQ, where he spun some tunes on his little controller. You know what sucked afterwards? Going straight to LAX that following day to go straight to Miami.

Miami: WMC/ULTRA

Miami was a fuckin trip! It was my first Miami music week I had ever attended and it was by far something I had never experienced before. AKA possibly the highlight of my year so far. Thanks to Karmaloop and Jenna. Anyway I did not sleep... No surprise there because there were so many parties going on every day/night that it was so hard to pick and choose which ones to go to. I arrived Wednesday morning and stayed till Monday. Talk about 6 days of straight work and partying. First off Julian was over here chauffeuring our asses all week long which was awesome because that dude is one interesting fellow. Possibly one of my favorite human beings on earth. But it was also clutch because hailing a cab in Miami is damn near impossible. 

Day 1:

Jenna (@Jennatort) Julian (@LILINTERNET) and I started our first day off at the "Spinnin Sessions" day party at Nikki Beach. And to tell you the truth I knew absolutely none of the djs playing that party. But we had to meet up with Elektro mag to plan out the itinerary of the entire trip and which parties we had to attend to get full coverage at. The OWSLA "Good Times" day party in Wynnwood was the second party we all mobbed too. Such an awesome party with a killer line up. It was a sick line up for day 1. There were a shit ton of b2b sets with a lot of djs that it seemed like they had their own mini ULTRA festival in someones backyard. lol. Jenna and I obviously went straight to drinking and were taking pics of all the hot people that attended the party in their cute outfits. We also met some awesome people throughout the day. Shout out the gLAdiator boys, congorock, skrillex, Clayton, Alvin Risk plus the many other artists/djs we met. After we left that party Jenna and I went to get Cuban food and went straight to our hotel to start getting ready for the night. We couldn't decide which party we wanted to hit up then I had remembered Cashmere Cat and Boys Noize were playing at Grand Central for the HARD party. We automatically mobbed there with the Kloop team and started doing some coverage before we got wasted in the night. Ok so Miami doesn't sleep I get it... It's normal for djs to get on at like 5am and for the party to end at like 8am. Thats cool. I've been to Miami plenty of times but did not really prepare myself for WMC haha. Let's keep in mind this was only Day 1 of the entire Miami trip so far. And I had not slept prior to LA before. It gets better...........

Day 2: 

Woke up had no time to eat (bc wanted to sleep more but had to get up) went to the red bull guest house where all these djs were scheduled to stop by and do press stuff with different media outlets. All these edm djs were fuckin with Karmaloop so they wanted to get a cameo in our video plus to the fact that @LILINTERNET was the one filiming. Which was dope because Julian was handling the interviews at this point and he was just so hilarious. We ran it back to our hotel after got ready and went out to Grand Central for the Hard party. I forgot who was even playing. OHHHHH Cashmere Cat and Boys Noize were playing. I think we went to see MIA but she canceled last minute. Left the venue at 6am.

Day 3:

Woke up still on 2 hours of sleep, got coffee alone went to do more interviews with Jenna and Julian. Left to meet up with Aaron in downtown Miami. Which I started to realize how much cooler Downtown Miami is compared to South Beach. After the 72 times of going on that Biscayne bridge thingy I started wishing I was staying downtown at that point. Anyway we went to little Cuba and got Cuban sandwiches with Julio and Aaron. We dipped after that to a studio where I was lingering and falling asleep lol. We left after that got dinner and went to head to Mecca for the Team Supreme show. Crashed on a scooter but thankfully only suffered bruises and cuts. THANK YOU LORD. However I was def walking with a limp a ~pimp limp~ I got wayyyyyyyyyysted at Mecca. I think it was good that I got drunk just so I wouldn't feel the pain  from the accident lol. I got so drunk to the point where I made Julian drop me off to my hotel. And I missed Aarons set. OOPS. Got home at 5am. And woke up in the worst pain ever. 

Day 4:

Ultra Festival day 1 we got our press passes and stuff running on adderal trying to figure out and get familiar with the festival set up. And was drinking a lot of alcohol which was a bad idea because it was hot as fuck. And at this point I was over Ultra. I saw Diplo, Carnage, and Kaskade play. Which was awesome. The sound system and visuals the festival used was top notch. Probably the most innovative festival I've been too. I just wished I had more energy that day to enjoy the festival. I left and we had to get ready for the Fools Gold Party at grand central. Got there with Julian and filmed Nina and Anna Lunoe in a convertible for her ALL OUT music video. 

Day 5:

Red Bull Guest House for the Mad Decent pool party where Carmack, Liz, Diplo, DJ Snake, Waka Flocka etc... played. It was a shit show the entire time. The workers sucked. I was wired on Red Bulls I think my heart stopped beating for an hour. I fell asleep on the cabana couch. Drank more vodka. lol Left the party to go to the Do Over party where Kaytranada was playing in Wynwood. Walked around and saw art with Aaron. Went to the coolest backyard looking bar where Just Blaze and his mom were just chillin. Sat with them and danced. Then left and went into a jacuzzi. My body was so sore and tired I couldn't handle the party anymore. 

Day 6: Last day

Did the Delano Beach Club for Adventure Club and GTA during the day. Left around 4 pm and went to club Space. WHICH STAYS OPEN TILL 11 AM. Made friends with some foreigners drank their alcohol. Left Space at 8am. Saw the sun rise with my bestfriend. Went straight back to the hotel packed my shit up and went straight to the airport.

 

YES I GOT SICK BY THE TIME I GOT BACK TO BOSTON. BOTTOM LINE AND MORAL TO THE STORY IS... IF I GO TO WMC NEXT YEAR I NEED TO PREPARE SOME UPPERS AND PACK MORE BATHING SUITS. 

 

THANK YOU FOR READING.

Twas an interesting birthday. I went from being a brat 1 hunnit to everything turning out ok. Despite the fact I got yelled at, at the festival I was easily calmed down by a Trippy Turtle dj set whilst running to see DJ Mustard, while freak dancing on the side of the stage as if it were a high school dance again. I was really happy to have spent it with my cousins and friends. Because every year, I kid you not, my mother throws me a massive house party with my bay area friends. However I am now accepting the fact that, I am getting older and I am no longer going to be having house parties from moms anymore :'( lol. YEEEEEEEEEE Thanks Aaron for Hard Fest, dumplings, and everything lol.

FRIDAY

We went to the Encore Beach Club for my dad Diplo, it was cool. But I was over it after the first 10 minutes bc of the shitty bouncers, and the 72 thousand people bunched up in the pool. I told Jenna and all of them to leave me at the black jack table while she ventured off with Joey lol. I couldn't stand the dry heat ahahah.

2 drunk ass British dudes came storming in our hotel room because they heard us playing hella loud music. And our dumbasses left the latch on the hotel door open so they just came barging through thinking it was ok. Then randomly started undressing themselves. It was the most terrifying shit ever. Lesson learned. Don't leave your door open -___-

SATURDAY

First off I'd like to give props to the EDC coordinators for making the decision of starting the festival at 5pm each day because it was too fucking hot in Vegas to even comprehend with anything. I can't even believe we attended a pool party during the day before we left for the actual festival. But then again... I did the same thing in Miami for Ultra so yes, I can believe it. I only went to EDC Saturday because I'm clearly a grandma and couldn't handle 3 days of 72 hour days in the desert. And also because sweet baby Aaron, Turtle, and Djemba were playing that day, might I add it was the best line-up out of the 3 days. Hands down this Vegas trip was probably one of my favorite Vegas trips I've ever had, because all my friends were in Vegas raging and we were all pretty much ditching the clubs to gamble.

Anyway, we started SaturDAY with the SYMBOLS pool party Kastle threw at the Downtown Grand hotel and it was tight, it was v low key compared to the other Vegas pool parties, but I liked this one because there weren't a lot of people in the pool, so ya gurl damn near was hittin backstrokes in the water while dancing to Jersey Club music and twirling in my drake bucket hat. (which I solely gave to Trippy Turtle at EDC, due to being so drunk lol.) We had to leave the pool party early to head to the festival and it was the most stressful thing ever. Aaron had to get his artist pass, the entire process was so annoying because the workers at the Cosmo sucked at their jobs. Whatever... bottom line everyone was good and clear once we finally stepped foot into the car and started heading to the festival

We were stuck in traffic so we were making friends with randoms on the freeway on the way to EDC. They threw Gram a kandie bracelet that read "posi-vibes" (how sweet.) We just kept reminding these girls to stay hydrated at the festival cus clearly they were under the influence at this point.

Aaron had the most packed crowd at that 7up stage. I started to shed a tear. Jk. But forreal it was wall to wall, stage to ferris wheeeeeeeel packed. It was beautiful.  Also the 7up stage was super tight because it had a mezzanine floor, while none of the other stages had one. So Djemba, Falcs, and I were watching his set upstairs while swigging out of a Jameson bottle.

This was taken before Gram left me :(  when we promised we wouldn't leave each other at the festival bc none of us had cellphone reception. But the realm was guiding all of us that we found each other by the trailers. Where I yelled at him hysterically then got over it, when we went to the Belvedere bar to drink more.

Aaron and I left the 7up area and went to go linger other stages at the festival. We also went to grab food. Might I add the choices of food joints there sucked sooooooo much. But whatever, I don't think kids go to these festivals to eat anyway. We went to go watch Bro Safari then immediately got over it. lol. We were about to ride some rides but the lines were sooooo long. Then we went back to watch Djemba finish. We drank more then watched the 72 hour firework show. It was prettttttttttty.  I'm really glad I got to experience EDC this year, let alone with these guys. Don't be surprised if CARMACK or one of these fools end up playing the mainstage or someshit next year.  Thankssss bb <3         xx NOODLES

Jacob & I

HEY Y'ALL! HERE'S AN UPDATE ON MY WEIRD LIFE:

Got invited to the Nike HQ in Oregon this past weekend from one of my homies that works corporate for the company. It was like a playground in their company store. I damn near wanted to cry when I was there because Nike has always been a company I wanted to work for, so after getting a tour around I just wanted to live in their building lol. It was also a blessing knowing that it's invite only to step foot into their store. V thankful for all the goodies I got to pick out for Miami! Thanks Will! 

Okay so the store set up was like this:

So when you walk through the front doors, there's a lobby section. And in the lobby section theres a receptionist checking if you're on a specific list so they can give you a slip ticket to get in. So you're supposed to hold onto that until you pay at the end. Obviously you can't take pics in there, but think of an actual Nike outlet store 3x as big. The aisle ways for the shoes were pretty wide than a regular store and they literally had really good shoe selections for most Nike styles. I was actually really surprised to see how many styles they had in store for the many Flyknit designs. AND THEY WERE SOOOO CHEAP OMFG. The workers were beyond nice in there catering to your every question and need. The clothes selection was amazing, that's where I went crazy tbh. Lol I literally grabbed everything basic from dri-fit clothing, to regular hoodies, to tights that complimented my ass. lol.

This is Jacob Keller a streetwear fiend. I met him when Karmaloop flew him out to shoot a couple product shots and content for the website a couple months ago. And in all honesty I didn't even know who he was until Derrick brought him to the studio and handed me him to dress. He was super duper quiet when we took him out to dinner and I will never forget the expression on his face when I told one of my interns to go get him food lol. But the absolutely cool thing I realized about him was that he is literally the male version of me (minus the djing part.) Why you ask? He is also 21, streetwear savvy, and an internet guru. He was definitely someone I wanted to get to know after he left because it's very rare to make dope friends in this industry. Which is why I like hanging out with producers/djs  because it gives me a break from my career life and shit.

Anyway, I hit up Jacob an hour before I was about to arrive to Nike just to see if he would actually be down to take some selfies and street style shots and HE ACTUALLY CAME. But not for just me, but because his cool friend BLAKE (who also happened to be from Boston) was in town and had to go to the company store to pick up some new shoesies. Don't you just love when shit works out perfectly lol. It was a v successful trip! <3

Vegas 2014

Oh god. I don't even know where to begin, and I don't even know why I'm making a blog post for this. But I just want y'all to know how hard my company goes when it comes to partying then working the next day. I was blessed to work with an amazing team for the duration of the trip as we covered all the tradeshows going down in Vegas. It was exhausting but well worth it... Cabbing from the Venetian for Agenda then mobbing to Mandalay Bay for Project, then heading to Magic, then cabbing back to the Venetian for Liberty & Agenda again. This is what happened............

STAY IN SCHOOL KIDS! IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT!!!!!!!

QUESTIONS:

Name: Micah Mahinay // NOODLES

Age: 21

Hometown: Born in San Francisco raised in Hayward California (east bay area)

Living now: Boston Massachusetts

Whats it like in a typical day at Karmaloop:

IT DEPENDS ON WHAT KIND OF SHOOT IS GOING ON... So say we're shooting product for the website it goes like this: Call time for hair & make up is at 9 am. The make up artist is usually in studio before the photographers, stylists, and interns get in. While hair and make up is getting done, I'm usually with my interns prepping what items need to get shot for the day. Once everything is pulled and styled we begin shooting (on white backdrop.)

Now if its a lookbook shoot things are way different vs. shooting catalog (website) usually lookbooks take more time because it's a process. You have to plan a concept, theme, pull the right clothes, scout locations, cast models,  figure out budget, do the logistics part and travel. So with that being said obviously these are the more fun shoots, but WAAAAAY more time consuming. Usually a month in advance is when the planning process should be kicking in.

What's the most valuable thing you've learned about the industry:

Do not trust anyone

Keep it professional

Don't mix business with pleasure

What bugs you most about your job:

When people linger on set, when they have absolutely no purpose to be there

What Inspires you:

Art and normal peoples lifestyles. I love meeting new people and getting to know them it's usually really moving seeing how different everyone is. 

What advice would you give to someone entering the fashion industry:

Don't have a boyfriend just yet

Bring business cards with you EVERYWHERE

Don't lie about anything

What exactly is your title:

Head Stylist

What do you absolutely HATE/LOVE about your job:

I honestly hate nothing about it, It's what I always wanted. I work with creative individuals, and I get to shoot with popular people. 

How did you know that the fashion industry was something you wanted to pursue your entire life in:

I was always into being different in my group of friends growing up from middle school - college. I always listened to different music and dressed way different compared to my clique of friends. I mean I wasn't really popular growing up until I guess you could say I started my blog. But even then, my Sophomore year of high school was when I started my fashion blog and I didn't really talk to anyone. It just had content that consisted of daily outfit posts, trend spotting, fashion week recaps, and over all music coverage. Kinda just developed an obsession with the internet then started branding myself from there. I hung out with older people, went out a lot, met a lot of people, and would just attend A LOT of shows/events underage. Which I'm very happy I started young because it's taught me a lot growing up. 

As high school went along I received a scholarship to FIDM my junior year so I figured why not just do it for the sake of doing it. I took it as a sign to move forward. Very glad I did it. Any design school is a trip damn near had me in tears my last year of college lol. 

If you didn't choose fashion what would you have gone with:

I would of went into video production. I love film. I love editing. I'm final cut pro certified and I def wanted to get into it. I'm more a visual person which is why I majored in Visual Communications. I like to create shit that looks appealing to the human eye. But other than dealing with artsy things. I would of went to culinary school too. It's always been a dream of mine to own a food truck lolololol. i LOVE FOOD & TO COOK.

 

The Synchronicity

Clearly the synchronicity of the realm was 10x more realer than ever today. I popped upstairs on the 5th floor to tell one of the copy writers something. Then out of the blue, my dude Derrick came walking thru in all black as I stood there in all white. Visually speaking our clothes spoke for us to the point where we'd be fools not to take studio pictures together. lol.

Street Philosophy

Damn, it's low key starting to snow in Boston. But it's pretty awesome to be experiencing that shit because I'm not used to it at all. ESP it being November. I just came back from the Bay last weekend, and literally went from being 75 degrees to straight up 30. lol. (WHAT EVEN) I can't seem to find the right clothes to wear while trying to stay cute and stylish. But I will say that these awesome pieces (shirt & pants) I received from Becca: the owner of wunderlustshop.com are keeping me in check. 

Follow them on facebook & instagram (2 many kute stuff 2 handle)

Giving Season is in Progress

Over 10 years ago, I remember being so young when I found out my cousin was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer. I swear to god it was one of the hardest things to see him go through while he was going through Leukemia therapy. I was so young I didn't fully understand what was going on, but I did remember seeing him in his bed resting like an angel. I was so scared he wouldn't make it, but he fought through it. I think I was mainly more touched by the situation bc my Kuya Bugsy was considered one of my older brothers that always watched over me and always called me his little baby. So seeing him go through pain was by far the hardest things my family and I had to see. My siblings and I would go visit him in the hospital in San Francisco and he would lecture us into taking care of ourselves and health. 

I LOVE HIM SO MUCH, HE ALWAYS MAKES ME LAUGH, HE'S SO CARING, AND IS JUST OVERALL A GOOD PERSON.

Last week I woke up one morning and stared in my mirror (as emo as this sounds) and was just soooooo tired of my overall look. I think I have a problem. Anyway, I just kept looking and realized I wanted to do something different to my everyday look. So I came to conclusion that I wanted to cut my hair. I immediately texted Debi at 6am (the hair and make up artist at Karmaloop) and said "Debi, I want you to cut my hair.." and at first she thought I was kidding, and replied saying "I'll let you ask me again when you're fully awake" lol. So I arrived to work and was like "DEBI I NEED YOU TO CUT MY HAIR, I WANT TO DONATE IT" And right after she saw how serious I was she went into cutting. 

With that being said, I was able to kill 2 birds with one stone. Getting a new look with myself that I absolutely LOVE. And I was able to donate to the Lymphoma cancer society at a nearby Hospital here in Boston. I couldn't be anymore happier with the turn out of the situation. 

I'm so glad I have so many good people around me, that I just felt the need to give back. And not only does it stop there. I just love helping people out. This season, is only going to get better.  

REMAIN HUMBLE. AND HELP THOSE WHO HELP YOU.

Central Square

Tis' the season to wear black. And ya gurl damn well loving all the dudes and gals toning it down a bit. Don't worry I didn't cut my hair. However it's beanie season and when you have long hair like me you need a clever way to stay warm without your hair being all over ya face. 

I got to link up with Lauren Engal who is a 19 year old fashion based photographer from Hong Kong / Bay Area but now lives in Boston. Uh yeah I spazzed out when we exchanged numbers and her area code read "510" because you know I'm from the East Bay Area. Anyway she's a young, talented, and creative soul. Possibly one of the cutest chinese girls I have ever met. What I enjoyed about shooting with her was how we didn't have a specific location in mind we were just winging wherever looked cool. You know... cuz improvising is literally one of the best skills a human being can have. I don't know: if you can make nothing into something, or make something worthless looking something expensive, I feel like thats a gift. And every place we came across was so simple yet interesting looking. We shot in Cambridge in Central Square.

Bay Area's Finest: Ft. California's Sweetheart

Before I begin to type I want to apologize for having a delay in updating my blog. I've been maaaaaad busy with a new transition at work that I literally always think about blogging but tend to forget to actually document my life. Lol. Anyway lets proceed to the post... shall we? 

 

OKAY So this week was awesome because my girl Carissa Rossi the main face of KarmaloopTV's interviews had hit me up to let me know that Lil Debbie was coming in to play in the studio for an interview with her. Immediately I got super stoked only because Debbie being from the Bay. Ever since I moved to the Beaaaaaaaan I swear I get soooooo happy when I meet someone new who says they're originally from the bay. Therefore you could only imagine how I felt when getting handed this last minute project. (Not complaining) Because it turned our more successful than planned. haha. So not only was Debbie having a show at the Middle East in Cambridge MA, but I got to shoot a couple of fits on her for the Guru website. THE FINESSE WAS REAL...

The official Images will be on my main page site once they are edited and approved by my team. YEEEEE. 

WAIT THE LITERAL FACT I GOT HER TO SMILE AND THE FACT SHE SUGGESTED TO DO AN AIR CHAIR POSE. MADE THIS PHOTO EXTREMELY RARE AND SPECIAL.

Fall Essentials Guide: By Noodles

Time to get ready for the new season which happens to be my FAVORITE season: FALL! 

Why is it my favorite you ask? The weather is amazing, it preps you for Winter, and I'm in love with the seasons trends that come back. 

Take and look and read whats on MY ESSENTIAL guide for this season... 

 

YES I AM BRINGING SAGGING BACK FOR THE GAL'S!

Obviously I've been listening to a ton of TLC that I got inspired by my favorite girl in the group: Lisa Left Eye Lopes (RIP) love u babygirl

Boxers will keep you warm in your sweats, boyfriend jeans, and Harem pants!

My all-time favorite way to style my personal get ups is in a cozy, tom boyish/girly way. 

On this specific list:

-Harem sweats

-Jerseys

-Sneaker Wedges

Note: BE VERY MINIMAL WITH ACCESSORIES! 

 

 

OUTFIT 1:

top: Thrifted pants: Zara sneaker wedges: Adidas  Originals watch: Nixon  

top: Thrifted

pants: Zara

sneaker wedges: Adidas  Originals

Outfit 2: 

Girls & Boys in a previous post I wrote a long entry on how to style your Jordans I am highly aware I didn't pare my Jordan jersey with any sneakers. So lets bring it back to how I mentioned I like dressing like a dude but in a girly way. This specific outfit was destined to be an all black look, but I just had to make it pop somehow without playing it safe with all black. So what better way to style it than pairing a jersey with some riding pants.

Needs:

-Jerseys (I said this already)  I'm serious tho' all types of jerseys are "IN" right now

-Quilted patterned garnements  

-Black basic wear

-The perfect black skinnies

- Unique looking booties

 

jersey: Given to me by my intern Lily riding pants: American Apparel quilted letterman: Zara purse: Vintage Chanel

Outfit 3:

Yesssssss flannel season, when it's most appropriate to wear!!! I was observing some shows from the previous NY Fashion Week and was sooooo happy to see that cropped tops are still in for this season! You know me and cropped tops. Anyway another favorite clothing piece I absolutely love on the fellas and gals are letterman/varsity jackets. They're warm, cozy, and stylish. They pretty much go with anything you layer it on top of. 

Needs: 

 -Varsity jacket

-Cropped tops

-Boyfriend Jeans

-Strappy Heels

 

jacket: Members Only jeans: Joey's jeans I stole lol flannel: GAP shoes: Steven by Steve Madden

Outfit 4:

Obviously Fall is most appropriate to wear Camo print. Although this specific trend never left. I've always been a fan of camo on dudes and gals. It literally goes withe everything. But before the trend started to spread towards the girls side, wearing camo in the fall was probably my favorite thing to see on guys. It's so HOT! I don't know why. But it just is! And wait, lets not forget that fall is the transition into winter. And summers transition into fall. Therefore showing skin is still appropriate depending on the weather. Let's just say... check the weather before you start to rock shorts or skirts with your fit. 

Needs: 

 -Wool/knitted chunky sweaters

-Denim bottoms

-Circle skirts

-Socks! 

-Vans

-Camo print anything

 

 

camo jacket: thrifted sweater: J. Crew circle skirt: American Apparel socks: American Apparel shoes: Vans Sk8 Hi's from DQM

The many adventures with African Frank

Twas a lovely morning/afternoon with Atem. This fool is nonstop a good time, he always be laughing at my stupid jokes I make. As I do to his stupid jokes too. But other than that, his fashion sense is on point! I love this dude, he always has the most exclusive shit ever, every time he comes into the studio I literally eye rape his clothes he wears. I can honestly say that Atem is one rare fellow. He kind of reminds me of myself... Why? He just turned 21 and is working as an Assistant buyer at Karmaloop. (YOUNG AND HE GETTIN' IT) By far one of the rarest, youngest, coolest dudes doin' it.

Anyway we got brunch at Beehive with our coworkers. And all I can say is... THAT PLACE IS BOMB.COM! 

 

And before you begin lurking this post.. Atem and I did not plan this tiger camo pants look! I SWEAR.
