This is a blog of things that I love: fashion, music, rocking out, batman and dating.

Co-founder of Small Girls PR and girl about (down)town NY & BK.

Ask me anything.

I also love emails. bianca@biancarocksout.com

My blog was designed by the awesome Jacob Bijani.

Keeping it light on a Saturday at the office- also titled “When in doubt, fake run”
Music by Eric Plourde

When the lights go out and the music stops and the glitter fades, it’s us alone with ourselves, just our own light and our own shadows. How do we feel then about the beauty that’s in us?

The Things I Wear: On that #GirlBoss Game
Also titled - High Waisted short shorts that look like they are made out of sofa material can do wonders for your legs
The last time I wore these shorts were in a very different circumstance - sitting in Mission Dolores Park dancing for 5 hours straight, wearing a shark shirt that I eventually shed down to a denim bralette.  Some guy at the park actually told me he had a sofa made out of the same material as my shorts.
Last week’s look was a bit more… biz (or as biz as one could turn a pair of high waisted floral shorts; tights, and layers consisting of a t-shirt, men’s shirt and blazer.)
Shorts - idk, some store in LA
T-shirt - American Eagle
Men’s Shirt - acquired from some guy 6 or so years ago
Blazer - H&M
Shoes - emergency wedding shoes purchased at Strawberry hours before the wedding
Purse - Katherine Kwei
I kind of enjoy seeing the stark difference in dress from then and now. As much as I loved that old look, I’m happy about the business class upgrade.
(not that I wouldn’t wear that old outfit like… tomorrow, if it were warmer in NY. versatility amirite?)

I love this look, though I don’t quite think I can pull it off.  Pink platforms and a backpack with a picture of a cat aren’t really my steeze.
Mallory definitely could. Maybe I’ll give it a shot for ‘dress like another Small Girl day’ next week.  Actually, now that I think about it, I kind of really want to at least attempt.  
I mean, I pulled off preppy a few weeks ago…

"I’m not just a dreamer. I’m a hopeaholic." - Gloria Steinem
Thinking about inspiring women today.
For the longest time I was one of those women who didn’t consider herself a feminist.  In my mind I never really thought that girls couldn’t do anything that men couldn’t do- we were all just people who could do what we wanted if/when we wanted to.
The things I choose not to do because I have no interest or don’t feel like I’m good enough are on a personal level and not on the gender level as a whole.  
After working with MAKERS on their conference this February, and hearing Gloria Steinem herself speak on the subject, I realized I was a feminist all along.  Not in the rallying activist kind of way, constantly pushing the subject to the public, but in the actions that I take and the way I live my life every day.

I’m ambitious. I’m motivated. I can be stubborn in my beliefs (but mostly because I really believe in them and I don’t want other people’s judgements to cloud that). I’m also emotional and passionate which can get pretty overwhelming. I feel like a lost kitten on most occasions, and I cry more than I’d like to (but that’s ok… crying is actually the best.)
And like Gloria, I’m a dreamer and a hopeaholic- for both myself and for other women out there.
Intolerance and ignorance is tough nut to crack, but I think people will come around.  Everyone just needs to get open and chill.

Metric- Lost Kitten

Always. [also for my girl Eva- may we be lost kittens (dancing) in the street forever] #officetunes

smallgirls:

At Small Girls PR we realize that looking polished is just as important as a polished press release or well-run event. In the public relations world, every little detail counts. The same idea translates into our everyday styles; each member of our team has a daily beauty essential they can’t go without.  
Over the next few weeks we are going to share some of our beauty favorites with you! Stay tuned every Friday for our new top picks: 
Bianca (Co-Founder): Old Spice deodorant (in Swagger). You can’t see it but it’s a wonderful surprise to catch a hint of yourself and think- “where is the cute boy… Oh wait I am the one that smells so great, I don’t need a man around for that.” Also, I don’t think that only men can be a legend of confidence (as it claims to transform you on the label)- works for me too. 
Mallory (Co-Founder): Gel manicures because you can roll out of bed for about 2.5 weeks and be confident that you still look like you tried.
Kara (Director of Operations): Essie nail-polish in every color imaginable. Right now my color of choice is “Smokin’ Hot”. As a recovering nail-bitter, I know all too well that polished nails make for a polished look! 

 Shared my beauty essential on the Small Girls blog.  Not a surprise.

Getting #LittleBlackDressed with Ann Taylor

Kate Hudson collaborated with Ann Taylor to design a collection of LBDs exclusively for the brand. A few members of our team stopped by their launch event on Madison Avenue last night to get #LittleBlackDressed.

I tried three of the dresses from the collection, and of course couldn’t resist dancing down the fitting room “runway” to really test both function and style (as seen in the instavideo below), before landing on the shift dress.
Being a small girl the shift actually looked quite oversized on me, which I’m down to rock.

Check out their event gallery for more instagrams of the launch.

Quality has no room for egos. Other people will have better solutions. You are going to miss things. You are going to break things. You are going to make mistakes. And people are going to point it out.

Dirty Dancing- I’ve Had the Time of My Life

Cleaning up my Spotify playlists over the weekend, I discovered one that was comprised of only this song.  Upon deleting, it just started playing and I found myself sitting by myself in the office on a Sunday belting out the tune.

I decided to blast it in the office this morning, not one but three times (the third at the request of one of our employees… converts!)

If that’s doesn’t mean blogworthy, I don’t know what would. So now you too can blast the theme in your office.

All I need now is someone to come in and do that lift with me at the end.  Any takers?

On another note - remember that time I wrote about why you should take every first date dancing?
