so fresh out of box

wearing: zara navy scarf, talula creme henley, the gap lilac mens oxford, talula leggings, payless boots, ardenes arm warmers

when i know i have a free day the next day, i often neglect my phone and just leave it in my bag, which usually results in a plethora of missed calls, voice mails and text messages. yes yes it is extremely irresponsible of me but i don't like feeling accessible when i am at home. i don't usually have much time to myself, so i like to spend this time on me and not on the phone with an old acquaintances that has wayyyy too many relationship problems.

i did keep myself busy during these times though, i finished the office box set M lent me, finished stalking those korean girls, attempted to clean my room and of course, during doing all of the above; i consumed my weight in chocolate. my attempt at tidying up my basement proved fruitful, i found some old mens oxfords in feminine spring colours and some of my aunt's old dress pants and almost kept my mind off of the sales going on during boxing week.

but of course i gave in and went shopping with my mom, and pickup a fur vest and an over sized sheer white graphic tee of the zodiac. welcome to my trendy closet.

that girl that jane so plain

wearing: talula oversized cardigan, hello kitty sweater tunic, betsy johnson lace tights, american apparel lake blue tights (underneath), zipia brogues

i don't really like christmas day, possibly because:
a) i am asian
b) i am an atheist
c) my family had previously owned a chinese food take out restaurant for several years which was open during xmas day, which resulted in an uneasiness to do nothing till this day.
d) our family doesn't prep or do huge feasts.
e) all of the above.

don't get me wrong, i really do like the whole spirit, the hectic atmosphere, and the exorbitant amount of chocolate consumed in preparation, but once the day is here, i feel confined to my house.
asians know how to profiteer off the xmas day holiday, since no place are open (minus 7-11) every one must eat and buy from their businesses that will main open as long there is a opportunity to make more.
speak of, today after we exchanged gifts, we went to the mandatory dim sum lunch where my brother pulled the fire alarm. at first we didn't hear anything, but sure enough, a faint and regular ringing resonated from the main dining area. in panic, we sacrificed our lovely heat vent and ran out to the cold. we all looked at each other in silence and we all simultaneously burst into laughter.

you don't have to be anybody because being somebody doesn't make you anybody anyway

velvet long sleeve double u-neck dress in burgundy, sheer long sleeve henley dress in light blue; all from american apparel

♥ long sleeve body conscious dresses

so i am not sure how i much i will like the sheerness and baby blue-ness of the sheer henley. of course i could have chose a darker, more appropriate and versatile colour to combat the sheer quality, but i am so sick of wearing such safe monochromatics. maybe i just wear super obvious black undergarments and just let the translucency speak for itself.

- also new ring in transit. can't wait!

jump jump

wearing: zara navy knit scarf, silence and noise crop top, hand me down baggy shorts, zipia black brogues, zipia faux leather jacket

so i;ve been contemplating a new travel stainless steel mug and making my own coffee. i spend wayyy too much money on heated caffeinated beverages.


wearing: H&M faux fur collar, forever 21 leopard cardigan, old navy white pocket tank, talula grandpa cardigan, hand me down high waisted grey trousers, zipia brogues, mrd74 raven claw pendant necklace.

the cat hunted the bird and presented the carcass to its owner. the owner doesn’t turn in disgust, instead she takes the claw of the bird and dips it in molten brass. she strings it around her neck and wears it proudly. the cat gets jealous that the bird got to spend more time with its owner. realizing this, the owner reciprocates her love towards the cat. these days the cat is missing, but the owner drapes a gorgeous new fur collar around her shoulders.

she loves animals so much.


while frantically searching for my navy vest with gold buttons ( i found it btw), i came across an unmarked huge rubbermaid box that contained an assortment of my aunt's old pants from the 80's. many of them were too short, really tiny, i found two things, the grey trousers above and a pair of baggy shorts, i could actually squeeze into. i guess fashion is really just recycled every so often. well i am quite fond of my newly acquired bottoms, but there are a lot of people find the styles to be too mature, but my mom likes them on me. i guess that doesn't count, she hates 99% of my closet.

ps. good night daul kim. your appearance during fashion week and edgy editorials will be sorely missed.
