It’s Our Anniversary!

Here we are, one month in and over 800 views! Thanks everyone, so much!

It’s our goal here to run a couple of regular pieces, you’re all familiar with Throwback Thursday, so we’re going to start “We Style You Wednesday!”

Here’s a chance for you, the reader, to ask a question about style and fashion. Questions can range from “What’s the hottest shoe style this season” to “What skirt is most flattering to my body type” or “Have you seen any shirts out there that can showcase my tattoo”.

We’re really looking forward to being more involved with our readers and are excited to showcase you on our site!

Next week we’ll reveal our first “We Style You Wednesday” so you have a little over a week to get your questions in!

Hi Tona is now a KarmaLoop Rep!

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)

ESPECIAL!

So, I got a gift certificate from Avenue and had to use it before the 30th. Got online yesterday only to find out that I had to use it in the store. I’ve gotten a bunch of coupons from them and always forget that they have deadlines and I miss out, so I was determined to get me $20 worth.

I grabbed the oh-so-hungover DancinAssassin, El Hitoncito and we went to chubby girl store.

It was great. 1) HUGE SALE! (hurry run fast to Avenue it’s a crazy sale) Half the store is on clearance for less then $20 2) I grabbed a skirt that was $5 instead of $10 and 3) Clearance item’s are WAY cheaper in the store.

So I got these:

They no longer have that one online so if you click on the picture it takes you to a patterned version of the dress. There were still some more at the store on Menaul if you want to go in.

and I got this skirt

I’m wearing it today. Super comfy and looks great for work. I’m loving the slide slit too.

Tony’s!

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.)

Weekend Round Up

Ok. This weekend was busy, busy, busy. Hi Tona’s goddess of a stylist, Scarlett Red (who owns Rockit Hair Studio), flew out to Vegas for the International Beauty Festival. Yes, IBS, we all got the gross reference. Orbit Salon had a beauty even and fundraiser. It was Albuquerque Comic Expo and KarateExplosion’s birthday. So, here is our photo dump from the weekend

I got these wedges at Target for $8.00. They’re super comfy but a little unstable. (I rolled my ankle)

Little brother @DanicinMHJ, rocking the Teal, corduroy shorts.

The new shirt I picked up with the wedges. Another $8 buy!

So excited! We also got to see Stan Lee!

People really commit at these things. I can only imagine it’s hot as hell under that costume and this heat.

And this was what we came home to at the end of Saturday.

It was also KarateExplosion’s 3rd Birthday!!

La Hi Tona is going to start doing theme days so let us know what themes you want to see. Today is “Throwback Thursday”! If you want to be featured send us an old school picture!

Now, play the song so you get the full effect.

https://www.youtube.com/v/MZjAantupsA?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0

Today’s featured throwbackees are…(drumroll please)…

My Momma and her best friend LW.

This is a foto from when they went to go see Cameo. Yeah, you read that right and they got to hang out with them. Jealous much?

I’m pretty sure most of the stuff they’re wearing is back in style. I mean, how many ways can I want that white clutch? It’s awesome and I bet it was real leather.

See, this for sale right now. (Click the pic to go to the site)

Happy Thursday!
