Hope you all had a terrific Thanksgiving weekend! Whether you spent a little QT/face time with the family, stuffed your face on that 2nd slice of pumpkin pie, saved face with a winning Black Friday strategy, didn’t dare show your face during Black Friday mayhem, or if you just managed to party your face off at some point or another… We miss your faces glowing in front of our Haus of Yoe updates!

Although, sadly, it’s been a little while since we’ve last posted, we’ve happily been neck-deep in projects. Between work on the latest W-Society shoot,

And oh, how marvelous it’s been on the grind. So please excuse the mini-hiatus while we sorted through our thoughts and lingerie….

For this week's music video shoot


‘Hot as Hell,’ indeed! Special guests VintageVandalizm and Raquel Reed helped V and the Trouble & Bass crew celebrate Drop The Lime’s latest single (which we’ve included at the end of this post). There was an amazing turn out at Public Assembly in Brooklyn, as partygoers dressed the part, packed the house, and danced all night to the unique electro-rockabilly sounds served up by Drop The Lime.

Our lovely ladies commanded the party:

”]Look who else came through… The one and only Roxy Cottontail.


”]Keeping the energy up!


”]The hair, the makeup, the ensembles…Divine!


”]All hands on deck for Drop The Lime!

And more from the lovely VintageVandalizm and the spicy Raquel Reed.

We at the Haus of Yoe can’t wait for the next power collabo!

We’ll leave you with a taste of the night’s musical mood 


Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

Haus of Yoe checking in with a little insider look for you… Feast your eyes on this slideshow of choice photos!

What you see above are select looks from Alife’s latest Lifestyle Guide Lookbook — which Valissa styled with the assistance of The Christian Civera on a blissfully warm day of early summer (2010).

V+C @ the Alife showroom in Chinatown. Downtown Style Mavens reporting for duty!


The duo arranged pieces for the lookbook from the Alife Spring Summer 2011 Sportswear Collection. Valissa’s vision for the looks centered around Alife’s “All-Americana” theme with a blend of permutations from punk rock to classic prep with a fresh edge…

Expect this excellent print volume [featuring our Lady V’s styling!] to drop in January.

And if the style suspense is killing you, munch on this for now… (It’s a link to the current [Fall/Winter 2010] cinematic version of the Alife lookbook, which features a fresh “musical score” by DJ Mehdi. We’re eating it!!!)

Bon appétite.

Checking into the Haus of Yoe! We’re bringing it back to that legendary night. Carnival style.

Inspiration du nuit? Gaga.

Grammy Tranny Glam


And Boy George.

Love! For cultured clubbing.

Boy Christian. Eat it!

Watch Valissa and Christian bring it BIG preparing for the Big Top Party hosted by none other than Amanda Lepore… The first video installment below is a Lady Gaga / tranny glam makeup tutorial (see V achieve her party look shown above and discover which products she turns to)…. Oh, and a little forewarning: excuse the bad lighting, but the up close and personal antics in this video are enough entertainment to stand on their own sooooo not a proper makeup tutorial but give a girl an iPhone 4 and you get fashionista filming on the fly.

…continued! In this second installment, the duo discuss the fierce things they do with their fab friends: designer to the stars Kerin Rose; world class DJ Roxy Cottontail; fashion renegade stylist-designer Omar Figueroa; va-va-voom stylist-blogger VintageVandalizm; ace photographer Kareem Black; and V’s other half, DJ Vida Ventura… Damn. What a lineup.
