outfit redo (and a video!)


    vintage top, silence and noise highwaisted shorts, thrifted belt, vintage oxfords + blazer

    It's suddenly really chilly and, upon adding these knee high socks and shrunken blazer, I realized that I like this outfit much more than I like the first. Can you tell that I was stretching the last moments of daylight to take these? This is definitely a look I should save for the fall but screw that, I'll wear it during the summer if I want to. Speaking of summer... where is it? Why has it been only 60-70 degrees tops? Something tells me that when it hits 90+ degrees I'm going to regret having complained about this...

    (Since people requested seeing me in video mode here is further proof that I am a spaz and can't even get the name of my blog right.)

suburban relapse


    vintage top, silence and noise highwaisted shorts, thrifted belt + booties

    I forgot to mention this but I'm pretty sure I suffered a minor concussion a few days ago while watching the Cavs play the Magic. I went to the fridge to get ice, dropped a few, bent over to pick them up, got up suddenly when BF called as the game went into overtime, and BAM! I ended up spending the rest of the night with a pack of frozen meatballs on my head and was pretty disoriented for a couple of days. I'm surprised you can't see more bruises on my totally accident prone body.

    Erm, I don't know what that rant has to do with the outfit but in any case here's what I wore to take care of a few loose ends while watching what may be the last game of the Eastern Conference finals. I also just booked my flight for LA to surprise my momma for her birthday! I just hope they don't try to convince me to stay home for the summer. I mean, I love my family and all but living in the suburbs of LA just doesn't cut it at the moment. I may have lived there for 18 years but it just doesn't feel like "home" anymore.

    (Although I do wish I could be in LA one week earlier to see my fellow blog buddies at the Blogger Shop Day!)

    T R E N D I S
    THE THING THAT INSPIRES US..

    UGLY T SHIRTS
    JNCO RAVER JEANS
    HEMP NECKLACES
    AND I FELT LIKE MYSELF
    I W A S N ' T T R E N D Y

    DONT BE SCARED TO TRY NEW THINGS
    GO INTO OLD MEMORIES
    DRESS LIKE YOU DID WHEN YOU WERE 10
    DRESS LIKE YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE CHARACTERS
    WEAR FUNNY HATS
    PAINT YOUR FACES
    WEAR UGLY OUT OF STYLE SHOES THAT YOU STILL LOVE OR HIPPY SANDALS
    DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR YOU WANT
    WEAR HUGE T SHIRTS
    DON'T BRUSH YOUR HAIR FOR WEEKS
    PIERCE YOUR NOSE YOUR EYEBROW YOUR LIP FOR FUN, IT WILL GROW BACK
    TRY SOMETHING FROM YOUR MOMS CLOSET
    TIE 3 FLANNELS AROUND YOUR WAIST

    FASHION IS JUST CREATIVE MINDS DREAMING AND BRINGING IT TO LIFE. EACH DESIGNER IS A NERD BECAUSE HE IS NOT AFRAID OF HOW HE LOOKS. HAVE FUN BEING YOU.. IT ONLY HAPPENS ONCE

favorite jeans


    acne hex jeans in sonic blue, thrifted striped top, anthropologie heels

    You know a pair of jeans is amazing when it gives the illusion of a decent rear end where the owner usually has none. I really do have no butt most of the time. I love the wash on these jeans but I definitely need to pick up a few more pairs in bleached denim and black. I'm running out of things to say and I'm being kicked off the computer so I'll make this short. Buh-bye!

    (I took a few pictures using my friend's SLR but accidentally deleted them. I forgot to put on lipstick here! It's MAC Russian Red btw.)

grumble grumble


    acne poor canvas tote bag via oaknyc

    Right when I finally found the perfect oversized no-fuss canvas tote bag, it was gone. POOF! I remember throwing a fit last week when I found out it was gone. I mean, where else would I be able to find a simple bag like this for summer that is bigger than two normal totes combined? It's still sold out but I'm crossing my fingers that they will restock eventually (preferably after I get a job and have enough money). At least BF got his Acne order in. Ugh, shopping woes.

note to self: need pedicure asap


    anthropologie top + shoes, thrifted skirt, F21 cardigan

    I just bought these heels from Anthropologie this past weekend. I've been looking for more open toed shoes to prepare for summer and these immediately caught my eye as I wandered throughout the store. Didn't really do much today other than continue looking for a job and sitting in my boyfriend's apartment making (or rather, watching him make) french toast for brunch and meatloaf for breakfast. Summer is kind of nice.

    (My feet are gross but I'll post a picture anyway. I tried painting my nails but I still need a real pedicure!)

food porn > shoe porn?


    acne button up shirt, vintage sunglasses, "all meat" super omelet from stacks, crackberry

    So I just saw Lulu today who complained that my tumblr has been boring lately since all I do is post about food. Well, to be quite honest, all I've done IS eat food. That and watch the playoffs. And other stuff, hah. My best friend is visiting until tomorrow from down south so I've been trying my best to show her around and what not. Not my fault 75% of that involves food!

    Not a full outfit shot (totally slipped my mind) but at least you can see my favorite shirt. I really should take more detailed shots of it because every single thing about it is perfect. The sleeves are carefully sewn to make the ideal cuff.

    Okay, back to the Laker game (and a Round Table Meatball Marvel, LOL)!

questions answered

    unwashed hair

    I'M FREE! Thought I'd celebrate by going through my comments and answering a random assortment of questions before I take care of things like washing/untangling my hair and getting ready to meet BF's mom at dinner. Oh, exciting! I'm just glad this semester is over and I can finally take a break.

    Q: Do you mind telling how tall you are?
    A: Somewhere between 5'9"-10". I think I shrank this past year.

    Q: Don't mind my asking, but what is your background?
    A: My mother is Mexican and my father is Vietnamese.

    Q: How do you keep your over-the-knee socks from falling down?
    A: I think it depends on the brand. I have this one pair that never stay up because the elastic stretched out really fast. The Target ones are my favorites because they're the tight enough (but not too tight).

    Q: What kind of camera do you use?
    A: Sony Cybershot DSC-W55 for outfit posts. I have film cameras (Minolta SRT-201 & Polaroid SX-70) as well but they get less use. I want to buy an SLR within the following year!

    Q: Just wondering, what lipstick are you wearing?
    A: In most posts, the red lipstick is YSL Opium Red. I used to wear MAC Russian Red but ditched it after buying this YSL one.

    Q: May I ask if you trim your bangs yourself or if you just pay regular visits to the hairdresser?
    A: I usually trim them myself unless I'm down in LA where my hairdresser is. I've been going to the same person for eight years and have never let anyone else touch my hair.

    Q: How do you have such magical bangs?
    A: The cut!! When I'm bored with the blunt bangs it's easy to brush them aside (although it may require some hair spray for optimal cooperation).

    Q: Are those good headphones?
    A: The Panasonic RP HTX7 ones? To be completely honest, I bought them because I'm obsessed with white accessories! The sound quality is decent to me and gets the job done since I'm not too picky about how music sounds. I'm fine as long as they block out all the idiots I encounter on the bus and train LOL.

    Q: How do you stay so thin? Do you work out a lot?
    A: I think my fingers get more exercise than the rest of my body does! I signed up for a gym membership once but never went. Wait no, I stepped in for free ice cream once. So then, the answer is a big fat NO. I do walk a lot to get around but I'm sure that barely balances out my unhealthy diet of Jack in the Box and frozen yogurt four times a week. I wish I were joking but it's 100% true.

Look of the Day.44: black spring

                                                      
    I love May and June...when stress strikes again!I had a very busy day yesterday with
    very good and nice things too.I was invited to have a sneak preview of the new
    Reiss range that is about to launch in the summer...
    and to see the whole new a/w 09 collection,
    guided by the lovely man behind the success of the brand,Andy Rogers.
    Let me tell you something,i can't wait to put my hands in a couple
    of pieces that have stolen my heart...amazing patterns and  colour palette!!
    Do you also remember that lovely woolie LBD that Danny Roberts  draw me with 
    for my blog header?Well, after someone mistakenly put  it into the washing
    mashing over 40 degrees, has now become my new favorite big-shoulder top!

    Me encanta Mayo y Junio,cuando el estres una vez mas se apodera de ti.
    Ayer tuve un dia bastante completo,de esos que cuando por fin llegas a casa 
    te derrumbas en la cama y ya no puedes volver a levantarte mas.
    Andy Rogers,director de la marca britanica Reiss   
    me invito a conocer de su mano la nueva linea que vera la luz 
    este verano y la ultima coleccion a/w 09.Con una paleta de
     color exquisita y unos cortes y detalles magnificos. 
     Ya tengo en mente varias piezas que seran una autentica gozada para mi armario.
    Otro de los incisos del dia fue relacionado con mi LBD de lana con el que 
    Danny Roberts me dibujo en el header de mi blog hace ya varios meses.
    Despues de que alguien por error(uhmmm) lo metiera en la lavadora
     a mas de 40 grados y se convirtiese en un raquitico top,es ahora sin duda uno de
    mis favoritos con manga abullonada!

this is not a dress


    H&M lace corset top + chiffon skirt, vintage shoes

    Nope, not a dress! I bought these two peachy keen pieces at different times and H&M locations but it seems like they were just meant for each other. I have this skirt in navy as well and am currently on the lookout for a cute white tube top to pair it with! Oh god, I am so ready for summer. I'm planning on living in floral rompers, light bleached jeans, and loose white tops. And a bunch of other things I can't picture at the moment because the only things I can think of are finishing this paper and frozen yogurt from the Yogurtland that just opened. And the shrimp burrito from cactus that I will be eating in approximately eight hours. And the sandwich from Ike's that I will be eating in two days. Not going to lie, I spend way more money on food than I do on clothes.

    (Oops, food tangent. Two more outfit shots instead of my tired face because the first two don't do the skirt justice.)

why I haven't updated


    BDG cigarette jeans, H&M tank, BDG cardigan, Converse sneakers

    And outfits like these are exactly why I have refrained from updating. A lethal combination of lethargy and stress has put me out of commission for over a week and although I'm done for the most part, I still haven't recovered. I've been away from the internet for most of the week focusing on things IRL and trying to survive what seems to be the toughest semester for me so far. Thanks for understanding, guys. At least now I'm done with tests and have just one more paper to go and then I have to start searching for a job. I'm staying positive, though!

    (Wearing my gold cardigan to show my Laker pride. GO LAKERS GO!)
