Boys boys boys

ahhh i can feel fall coming
the breeze is cooler
people are layering up a little more
and the nights are colder
yes i feel it coming
must reanalyze wardrobe to fit with the season.
went shopping at Forever 21 and H&M
some similarities was there was a lot of blazers and straight line garments.
ohhhh then I went online and saw the Spring 09 RTW line: Boy by Band of Outsiders
very simple and sleek lines. Girl meet boy kind of clothes. Put a nice black tight underneath
each outfit and it's Fall ready

miss Kirsten Dunst is the lovely model for this line:




I really like their collection. Colors: love it. Shape: love it.
The pieces are good by themself or put together

Looks a lot like basic pieces and worth the money.

i want internet.

ahhh so sorry for not updating
I actually took some pictures of my outfits
but we haven't gotten internet for our new apartment yet so I have to either go to school
or our local coffee stores to get internet and I am a very lazy person.

Anyways, yesterday was my bday
and I had made a dress for that
but ended up not wearing it
and then bought a dress but hemmed it too short
so I ended up not wearing that neither
so I ended up wearing this nice top my sister had in her closet.
jeez I'm very picky when it comes to my outfits.

so as a bday present for myself, i went shopping. shopping by yourself can be very fun sometimes but not on your bday. it was ok. not as fun as I thought it would be.
Bought some stuff at Forever 21 and wetseal
I want to go thrifting though. Mainstream stores can get boring after a while.

so while my internet is on the way
I have resort to the only thing I can get my hands on that is fashion related on my laptop
random fashion pictures
and Sex and the City Episodes.

New Beginnings.

so I've finally managed to transfer all my crap from my old house to my new apartment
and since the apartment is smaller than my old house, my sister has given me an ultimatum to drop out some of my stuff or find a place to keep it neatly.

See the thing is I like to keep a lot of the stuff that has any ounce of sentimental values like movie tickets to little tinklets I find in the streets and I have a huge box of art supplies.

I guess since I've moved on. emotionally and physically from my past. I should throw away some of the useless emotions of the past too.
My old house had a lot of memories in it. I was sorta sad to part with it. I'm the type of person who gets attached to both people and things very easily. I spent a lot of time in that with my ex ex boyfriend and my ex boyfriend. A lot of shit has gone down in that small house but people move on and life goes on and there's no use in sticking stubbornly to the past.
The past is called the past because you're moving past and you aint nothing like you was before. (quote from Alicia Keys)

But the good thing about this new apartment besides it's scrawny lock that anyone can break, is that it has a very large walk in closet. That was the one thing that got me very excited for downgrading to this apartment.

So I promised myself that I will move on
and throw away useless junks of my past.
I will fill up that closet to its fullest potential
with shoes and outfits and hats and and
and.... love.

My bday is coming up: SEPTEMBER 15!
and I've decided to make my bday dress from scrap.
I was going to buy white fabric but I don't have that much money left so I'm resorting
to making something fabulous with some of the silk yellow fabric that I had left over.
I can't wait to get started
but as the procastinator I am
I was suppose to start yesterday.

when i get to sketching it out
and making it
i'll post up pictures

whenever you think i'm materialistic for wanting to be a fashion designer

I think of Meryl Streep said in The Devil Wears Prada when Anne Hathaway laughed at the staff for being so picky over two red belts that looked the same....

“This… ’stuff’? Oh… ok. I see, you think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select out, oh I don’t know, that lumpy blue sweater, for instance, because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don’t know is that that sweater is not just blue, it’s not turquoise, it’s not lapis, it’s actually cerulean. You’re also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar De La Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves St Laurent, wasn’t it, who showed cerulean military jackets? And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of 8 different designers. Then it filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic casual corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and so it’s sort of comical how you think that you’ve made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you’re wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room. From a pile of stuff.”

Love it!

The City of Angels

my deepest apologies for not updating sooner. It has been a very hectic few weeks for me
with school and work and moving.
yes that's right.
I'm moving to an apartment with my sister and I'm very excited
but what I'm not so excited for is that fact that i have to pack.
it takes my sister like 30 minutes to pack because she doesn't have a lot of stuff like me. I tend
to always save like tidbits that have no use but I still keep for sentimental reason. My sister likes to throw those out but i like to keep them in little boxes around my room so you can just imagine how long and hard it's going to be for me to pack and throw some of my stuff away.
It's like the death penalty. I don't know if I'm letting the right ones go. ahha.

Anyways last thursday I went to LA to attend a going away party for my friend Cecilia whose going to study abroad for 4 months in italy. We're very close so it's kinda hard on us to see her go but she made us promise not to cry or else she would cry so during the whole night we sway away from that subject.
We ended up going to the Rooftop Nightlife at the Standard hotel. It was a lounge and it was beautiful.
When we entered we made our way to the escalator and this bouncer told us that we were so small and kute and that we should get our little butts up there.
LOL. that made our night.
this is what I wore. Just a little see through but it was very kuttteee....

me after drinking a sex on the beach.... showing too much love.

I realize that I'm going to be so happy when I move to LA next year. There's such a diversity of people.
so excited.
