galaxy supernova.

Finally had time for a quick outfit picture post today! Bought this dress about a year ago but never really got around to taking photos with it; here it is now! It's a bit cooler in temperature so I am finally able to layer up in sweaters and things. Yay! I am pretty much recovered from that cold/flu (yuck, hope everyone's taking precautions not to get sick!) but it's hard to get back into the grind. As I am writing this, my eyes are practically begging me to take a nap..

Happy hump day, and here's looking forward to friday, which is Lunar New Year! Happy year of the Horse, and to those whose signs are Horses, I hope that 2014 is a wonderful year for you :)

p.s. Also, that hanger tag desperately wanted to be in my photos. Please excuse its naughtiness, I know your eyes go STRAIGHT TO IT ahahahha T_T

peachy keen!



Somehow came down with a bug and have been trudging my way through the week...not a nice feeling! With that being said, it puts my blog plans on the back burner as I attempt to feel better to do everything I need to get done.

Recently purchased this lovely peach coloured Mini MAC (at a discount!!) and had to take a photo of it. I've been wanting to own a mini MAC/mini 5-zip for quite awhile now and actually purchasing it was quite the experience. Partly because I was so scared to make a big purchase. Although, when I think about it, I've purchased Jeffrey Campbells that were more expensive than this thing...

chartreuse + black!






(Sheer chiffon and lace top - Shakuhachi, Bustier (worn underneath) - MINKPINK, Chartreuse double-slit midi skirt - Topshop, Black booties - Steve Madden, Chain and leather necklace - Nordstrom Rack)

Sooo in a moment of weakness I snagged this skirt online...but it was half/over half off so it makes it slightly easier to rationalize! :P Wore it for the first time today and it was really intriguing to see bare leg each time I walked. I know I bare my bare legs (hahaha, the puns) all the time when I wear shorts, but the length of fabric made flashing my skin so much more..sexy. What a word.

I realize that in today's pictures, I have squinty eyes. I blame it on my monolidded-ness and the intense sunshine. Also, not wearing tall socks with these booties = chafing. I have a small raw spot on my shin and it hurts! Ouch. The things that we go through for fashion...but hey, if it looks good, it makes it bearable..right?

A long weekend is ahead and I still have something else planned! Whether or not I get around to it, well, is the question :P Hope you're enjoying your lovely friday!

pixie market dreams.

Some random pieces that I wish I had in my closet right now. I know that the weather is a really cliché thing to talk about, but it's certainly something on my mind right now. It's been abnormally hot in California and apparently it was the driest year on record. Shall I break out into a rain dance to coax the skies to cry a bit? I love my shorts and all, but I'd really like to experience some change. The fact that California is in a drought doesn't make it any better, either.

Well, that's enough about the weather..I hope those of you stuck in chilly weather are faring well! I'd gladly lend you a few degrees if that's okay with you ;)

A long weekend is ahead and I've already planned on updating the blog quite a bit..so stay tuned for some long deserved outfit posts! At least I'm doing better than before :P

early blooms.






(Embroidered floral top - Topshop, red skinnies - Forever 21, Monk strap shoes - Vagabond, chain necklace - Forever 21, Quilted bag - Vintage)

First post of the new year! I think the weather has been so mild that the trees are blooming...which is weird, because it really seems like a far too early time for them to bloom. Where will the flowers be when it is actually springtime?! Maybe I'm just mistaken and this tree is just an early bloomer, but still :P I love these magnolia blossoms! They make my walk to classes much brighter and I love looking up at them.

Do you remember seeing this top in one of my wishlist posts earlier? ;) After coveting it for months, it is finally mine! It is even better in person and I want to wear it every day. I've already worn it two days in a row (shh...outfit repeating isn't that serious of an offense, I swear!!) I can't wait to wear it with other combinations from my warddrobe. I just need to experiment more, I suppose.

Going to school three days a week and then an internship for the other two is going to make my schedule really hectic, but I promise to try! Besides, how else will I share my recent acquisitions? I feel like it's something I can do on my blog because, well, that is the purpose of a fashion blog. Gushing about clothes. Reminds me of a lecture I had just earlier today about advertisements and change to a consumer culture...but I digress.

Hope your friday goes smooth and well! It's friday! Enjoy your weekend :)
