Oh gosh. So so so sorry to anybody who might be reading my blog, but I'll be moving to Wordpress in a few days. I'm working on the blog layout and such and I'm such experimenting until I find my comfort zone. Sorry Blogspotters :(

I'll let you know of the link as soon as it's live.

Ah, I remember my noob days (on a different blog, now nonexistent) when I would post ten times a day with random, stupid nonsense. But I'll make an exception for a two-post day today. GUESS WHY? Because I got the photos! I finally got around to finishing the picture editing (:

ASH: Gap double-breasted pea coat, vintage, unknown brand shirt, Charlotte Russe vest, Anchor Blue jeans, gifted boots (unseen)
ARIELLE: unknown clothing brands :(

ASH: thrifted denim shirt, Forever 21 dress, Forever 21 leggings, Converse
ARIELLE: Mom's Chanel earrings, Madewell scarf, BDG tank top, Madewell cardigan, J Brand jeans, Boutique 9 boots

And thanks to Abigail B. for all the pictures!

As Promised...

My weekly style icon ... CHRISTINA GRIMMIE.

Most of you may know her from YouTube channel and I don't know about you, but I just love her style and voice so here's a few images of her classic (and not teased) hair and outfits

  (haha, blue hair... we have the same taste! I just streaked my hair - temporarily - a few weeks back for a softball game!)

Is is just me or does she look like Jennifer Love-Hewitt here?

{ 1-4: her Facebook ; 5: ; 6: ; 7: }
And my sincerest apologies! I've been so pre-occupied with science fairs, projects, studying, learning Chinese alongside Spanish, and getting ready for a whole bunch of trips that I took a few days to edit the pictures. God, I'm so forgetful, but I promise I'll have them up by tonight or tomorrow afternoon ... if not, definitely Monday.

Webby Award!

Colour Lovers by jillsansjack

Colour Lovers, a photo by jillsansjack on Flickr.
No, not for me. Not yet at least (maybe I'll get one later... just maybe)

Buut... here! A link. OH MY GOSH A LINK.


Vote for COLOURlovers just because you want to vote for something other than Twitter.

Kidding. No. Vote for them because the site's amazing and you will not believe just how many times I've been to that site, looking for images, looking for color palettes. AND I'm still using the site to redecorate the site (which I'm still doing...despite promising myself that I was done)

And if that's not enough to convince you, I'll bring up a few images from the site that really got me. Some may not be from the users, but they put together palettes from the images and it really strikes me as a hardworking community. (look above for images)


Oh and quick note: I just received those pictures from Friday! (yeah... you might wanna see this post to know why my pictures are always so late... silly me)

Smile for the camera! (WARNING: LONG POST AHEAD!)

Another inspiration board as I wait for some photos to be emailed to me so I can upload them here (pst: they're a "photo shoot" starring Arielle and me along with a friend...)

Today's theme: COSPLAY. (well...most of it at least...)
Note: I do not watch/read any of these mangas/animes/shows (I know, what kind of an Asian am I?) I just picked them out because they looked amazing. Authors credited. All images from dA

photographer: xxnatto @ dA

My friend emailed me a link about an Australian designer (Ori Henrisson) who was inspired by Korean bands 2NE1 and Big Bang's music video Lollipop for a new line. (from Sept. 2010) [ link ] - all images from here as well

The entire campaign looks creative, fun, and fresh and I'd like to try it on myself (despite the fact that it's a men's line). Without any further ado, here are a few favorites of mine:

The mix of plaid and classic button up shirt is something I've never seen in America before...bring your brand here Ori!

Real men wear ruffles...

Can't forget your ever-classic hoodie

Sweaters turn into shawls...for men as well!

Alrighty. That was fun to look at and to decide which ones were real colors and which ones were just the products of filters of Photoshop or what-have-you. Anyways, referring to my last post, don't think I'm like that all the time. I was just taking some time to vent my feelings so with all that aside, please don't assume that I'll be posting all these rants nonstop. And another reference to the post. Clarisse McClellan. If you haven't read Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, I really suggest you pick up a copy of it. It's an amazing book and well-written. It's pretty high on my favorite books to read list. I have to admit, though, I got hooked onto Bradbury's writings through literature class as we had to make a diary based on a character in Fahrenheit 451. I'll post up images later. (Burning is fun...I get where the firemen are coming from!)

And another issue (not really issue, but another...topic): I may be opening up an online shop soon for fashion items. I'm really thinking ahead right now, but I'll test out the waters first on Etsy, if I'm slightly successful, I'll set one up. Why? Because lately I've been making several trips to Michael's and various stores around my house to find art supplies for projects for school and I've picked up other things along the way just so I could have fun with it. And I've come up with clips, pins, boxes, jewelry, and miscellaneous items from my tiny bag of art supplies. out for a link soon!

Is all.
