Hey! Are you familiar with Karmaloop.com? I discovered them about 4 years ago when I wanted a TITS shirt (long before there was a TITS website)
Karmaloop carries really great things like Betsey Johnson, Jack Dakota, Crooks and Castle, Married to the Mob, they have a vintage section (I bought a great poncho there last winter).
We recently became Karmaloop reps and that means savings for all you readers out there! The first time you purchase you get 20% off if you use our Rep Code and every time after that you can save 10%! What a deal right! OUR REP CODE IS: HITONA

My salon Rockit Hair Studio (by mine I mean the one I go to) owned and operated by my very own hair goddess, Scarlett Red, is having an amazing raffle!
You may remember them from Weekend Round Up
Here’s the awesome basket they’re raffling off
Tickets are only a dollar! yes $1! Davines products are expensive, but worth every penny, so a dollar for a ticket is amazing!
So, stop by the salon in Nob Hill and get your ticket before it’s over! And if you go in then you’ll know where it is when all the exciting events happen next month!
I recently learned how to use blush and bronzer to contour and I’m in love. It’s become one of those things I can’t live without. I even bought myself a new blush brush this weekend. (At Target, $4.00, it’s great) So, click on the picture above to read an article Refinery29 just published about blushes and bronzers.
I usually use this set from ELF cosmetics. (Click on the pic to buy yourself one!) I use one of the top two bronzers and usually the blushes on the left hand side. If it’s night time or depending on what I’m wearing I may wear a blush on the right side.
What are your favorite bronzers, blushes and brushes?
You know the drill, play the video then scroll down.
This past weekend was the infamous Puerto Rican Day Parade in NYC. Where they have more Boricua’s then the isla does.
I couldn’t find a lot of great pictures like years before but here’s a few.
Puerto Ricans are some proud ass people! Que viva Puerto Rico!
I’m late on my review of all the amazing dresses worn at the Tony’s this year.
So here they are!!
Hosting again this year was NPH, he and his husband both look handsome, per use.
My idol, Phylicia Rashad and her gorgeous daughter, Condola who played “Cheryl” in “Stick Fly”.
Dramatic floor length dresses are always on point at the Tony’s. There is a touch more class associated with this award show over any of the others.
There always has to be “that guy” or in this case “that lady”. Here we have Laura Linney and Jada Pinkett Smith wearing short dresses and both looking phenomenal. Stepping away from maxi dress, nude colors and neons, which are all in style, both of this women grab on to something new, different and maybe a glimpse of what’s in store for the fall. And let’s not forget they’re both over 40, don’t they look great!
The most talked about outfit of the evening was this one. @gabbyralphie tweeted that she loved it but there have been responses all over the board. Your thoughts?
And, just because I like to add video’s to my post, here is my favorite Tony’s acceptance speech of all time. (And nicely ties in to our next post.)
Everyone’s favorite day of the week!
So after seeing that awesome clutch in last weeks throwback I found this one
At Barrett Attic, a thrift store on Lomas and Washington, for $5 and it’s real leather!
Ok moving on.
Here’s your TT video:
and here is your picture
This is Hi Tona and her best friend Jess back in middle school. I know, you’re thinking, “WTF! She’s running this blog, crap!” But there’s hope. You gotta have faith. It all works out in the end. Ugly ducklings become swans and little girls who wear boy clothes grow up to women with some sense of style.
I’d like to point out that Hi Tona (in the 2nd picture) still wearing a man’s shirt just with a little more grace and a lot more style.
