    Hey.. and sorry for being away for a while.. I'm back from my 2 day getaway that I really did not have time for.. resulting in now being totally stuck, forcing my self to finish uni projects before next weeks deadline..

    anyway finland was awesome and freezing, the days totally flew by.. I'll get to go back in a few weeks, but before that I get to enjoy the first snow in london and a good portion of xmas hypeing.

oh, blerg!

    Just spent a nice relaxing weekend with family (thanks for taking my pictures, mom!) and now I'm back in Berkeley where the high in is in the 50s. Super excited about tomorrow, it's finally time for El Clásico!! Oh, and my birthday. Too bad I have a paper and presentation due right after. I'm keeping this short because all of my creative juices are running dry after writing 5 pages about baroque Spanish poetry...

    I'm off to Zuni now for dinner. CHICKEN FOR TWO! Sounds like a good birthday.

Princess dress up games à la lanvin

    hm x lanvin dress
    new looks shoes

    Dress up games made easy by this beautiful lanvin x h&m dress.. not the kind of dress that I'll wear every saturday but that's not what I base my shopping on anyways - never have, never will. This red one will be perfect for the holiday season where overdressing is totally accepted - if not sometimes mandatory.

    now I'm off to my cousins engagement party, where the dress code was 'something red'.... I guess I took that advise quite literally.


Shiny new things

    Hey! and good morning from the airport.. I am having my morning coffee on a unusually quiet airport and had a few extra minutes to sit down.. I guess it's been a while since I traveled this early in the morning. I was up all night trying to pack but did all other things instead.. I never manage to sleep before I fly.. luckily I realised last minute that packing was easier than normal when all I really need for a weekend in finland would be my lanvin x hm dress that took all the place in the suitcase, still really love it and can't wait to snap a few photos for you... more on that later, here are some of my new things..

    have a great weekend everyone and happy thanksgiving to the ones that get to celebrate it... x

wizard cape

    vintage cape, american apparel tights, vintage boots, lanvin x h&m sunglasses

    I found this cape deep inside my closet when I was cleaning it out this weekend. I think I bought it at American Rag in SF right before it closed. I watched Harry Potter last night after a successful marg & guac fest at Chevys (SUNDAY FUNDAY!!). It was okay. The movie, I mean. I read the final book three times when it came out and I don't remember it being that boring. I guess nothing exciting really happened in the first half of the novel but the next one is going to be way better, obviously. Good thing I was drunk.

    Current best thing for cold day survival would have to be the combination of big knits and maxi skirts.. probably because you can wear half of your wardrobe underneath.. awesome, cosy and cute as long as you are outside.. not so cute when you find yourself sweating and rearranging the layers as soon as you step inside. 

    naah I should stop pretending that I am not looking forward to the crispy cold days.. I can't wait to take out my hairy snow boots... I take it that chanel totally city-approved the yeti look right? Karl - the grandmas in finland applaud you.

It's too cold for these shoes

    I hear there is already snow in finland.. I might book a last minute get away for next week.. which kind of means I should dedicate the weekend for catching up on uni work.. well we'll see.

    have a nice weekend everyone


ohhhh here she comes


    A better photo of my hair from the last post. I don't know if you can tell but I'm wearing a braided double headband from Zara. I have no idea how it came out so well, I think I was watching TV while I put it up absentmindedly. I do remember taking out around 15 bobby pins at the end of the day though. Second photo has nothing to do with the first but I like it anyway. I hope he doesn't end up with carpal tunnel, seriously.

    To answer a few questions about the photo in that last "happy" post: I bought the Totoro dolls at a kiosk in a mall in Southern California and the ceramic eggs are from Daiso in Japantown. I don't know if that kiosk even exists anymore or if the eggs are still around since it's been a while since I bought them. I don't know where to find them online, unfortunately.


Quite possibly the dress of the season

    The next time someone asks me to summarize my style in one word I'm going to be crass and say it: I'M JUST LAZY. Sometimes I like to care a little but for the most part this is what drives the way I dress now. The busier I am, the less I fuss over my appearance. I admitted that for a while that I thought I was letting myself go, which is somewhat true, I suppose, but after a while I realized that I may just finally be getting comfortable with the way I want to look which isn't really anything special. So what if I wear the same things over and over again? Isn't that what you're supposed to do when you buy clothing you claim to love? As a friend of mine stated so eloquently:

    my whole thing is just
    stop being "things"
    and just get dressed


    Maybe I'm just a lil' cranky about everything that's been going on with Four Loko. THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS! Everything is good in moderation, guys.

    Cold fall days call for layered knits and colors to match all the changes...

    maybe also a new love... right now it is the spearhead ring.. sigh.

    Slowly easing back into the flow of things. I think I just needed a month-long break from everything to reevaluate my life/relationship/friendships. I'm entering the "real world" in less than two months and I'm still not 100% sure about what I want to do. Or I think I know but I'm not sure how to go about it. I'm looking for a full time job at the moment but can't devote enough time to seriously look because of school.

    OKAY THIS DISCUSSION IS TOO SERIOUS TO GO WITH THESE PHOTOS. I'm eating a horchata ice cream pop and prancing around in a mini dress in 75 degree weather, damn it. In November! Is it really November? I had originally put this dress up for sale but the buyer fell through so I ended up keeping it.


    Starting to rethink these larger photos since they really show how haggard and frazzled I look after sleeping 12 hours. I've been sick, okay? I'll end this with this stupid photo with this stupid idiot who I want to punch every now and then. I'll still give him a bite of my ice cream though, even if he is a little vulgar.
