Kendall Jenner absolutely nailed in Yigal Azrouel on the red carpet last night! The award show wasn’t exactly for her industry or anything like that, but she did present alongside her sisters Khloe and Kylie and she looked the best out of all three!
Who: Jamie Chung
Wearing: Diane von Furstenberg
Where: Big Hero 6 movie premiere
Readers – since Sunday, I have been working on an “I Like Your Style…” post featuring Jamie Chung and I finally finished it yesterday evening. However since I didn’t save the draft as I went and tried to publish it yesterday, WordPress completely deleted the whole thing. These posts usually take me the longest to do because it requires going back to all of their events and appearances and picking out my favorite looks and finding out who exactly they were wearing. Though I was bummed, I knew I didn’t want to try doing it over again even on my day off as I’d like to spend time on different posts for Yow Yow today. So compromise – this post. Jamie Chung was my favorite Real Worlder of all time and she’s like me – a young Asian American woman – so I’m completely behind her!
She has her own blog as well where she details some of her outfits and many of them we love and would’ve been featured in the post that got deleted. You can check it out here!
I meant to write this post before I left, but then time got ahead of me and I completely forgot altogether. There haven’t been any posts this week because I’ve been hard at work with my day job and traveling for the first time with my company. I don’t talk about what it is that I do on Yow Yow! because I generally like to keep my blog life and my work life separate. However, I will say that I work in recruiting and I attended the Grace Hopper Conference in Phoenix this week celebrating women in tech!
It was the first time that I had ever been to anything like this and I found it to be not only a really positive event, but truly inspiring. It’s incredible to be amongst many talented women each expressing their passion for tech and striving for success for themselves. The conference is filled with sessions and talks throughout the couple of days, but also a career fair every day for three days. It was the most exhausting thing that I have ever been a part of, but I loved telling people what we do and seeing people come to our booth to let us know how much they love our product!
I also happened to collect the most swag that I have ever obtained at an event. It was awesome. Pouring it all out when I got home felt like Christmas. A very tech Christmas.
So my job is at its peak season currently which means Yow Yow! posts will be few and far between unfortunately. I didn’t receive a press pass for Treasure Island next weekend and am realizing now how tough it is to build up Yow Yow! in the Bay with a full time job. I think I’ve always known that. I wish I could have both, but I am very fortunate and lucky to have my job and I wouldn’t choose to have it any other way.
Ariana Grande in Moschino top and skirt. This is kind of a hard look for Ariana who is known for her sweet strapless dresses, but this IS her night after all – opening the VMA’s, debuting the music video for “Bang Bang” and releasing her latest album “My Everything” tonight!
I run into this dilemma quite often. Every time I’m at a social gathering, a dinner party, a work event, etc. I never know when it’s appropriate to start making the rounds and saying goodbye or if I should just keep my head low and quietly duck out. I’ve done both and I’ve never quite perfected because each time I feel like I look like the most awkward turtle in the room. When I found this flowchart on A Cup of Jo this morning, I thought that I had struck gold! Finally – a chart for people like me who just don’t know what to do. Readers, what do you think? Do you agree? Would you make some changes to this chart?

I haven’t made my way to as many events in San Francisco as I would’ve like so I feel like by posting about them, I’m making some sort of a commitment. Will anyone else been there? I haven’t listened to Rogue Wave since I was a teenager and obsessed with that song “Eyes.” Are they still a pretty dream pop sleepy band? This is no Capitol Hill Block Party by any means, but I missed Outside Lands last weekend so…
When I first read this poster, I thought this said “Barf Fest.” Lol. Spokane is getting their first music festival and you know what? The lineup ain’t bad! Their local acts are amazing – Pickwick, Beat Connection, La Luz. Whoever is running ship on this festival did a wonderful job for a first lineup. This couldn’t have been easy. Enjoy Spokane! This sounds like fun!
It pains me to have to miss Capitol Hill Block Party this year – the first in many years! It used to be the event that I looked forward to the most every summer not only because it was just so much fun, but because it took place in my neighborhood. I’m missing it this year (for a while I thought I was actually going to fly back for it) and while I’m disappointed I won’t be there, I know that the festival won’t disappoint. They’ve got such a great lineup and I wish I were there! My friend from back home, Lucas, sent this photo over to me last week from the Girl Talk set last summer on a flier promoting Capitol Hill Block Party.

Remember when music festivals were just mostly in the spring/summer? Now it just feels like they are popping up all the time!
