new shoes

Don't you love it when you find the perfect shoes? I recently found these lusicious brown mary jane heels at the Buffalo Exchange and I can't seem to stop wearing them :)

In the first outfit I'm wearing them with my favorite pink dress (in a previous post) from wet seal and a gray cardigan from plato's closet! (Excuse the heart on my face- my face was not ready for the camera!) I'm also wearing a polka dot headband but you can hardly tell. In the second outfit, since it's been so hot & humid lately I paired them with a white t-shirt dress that was thrifted, both with my betsey johnson blue leopard print purse!

I also got film developed of my yard sale and the beach! More photos coming soon lovelies!

Telegraph Avenue.

I love spontaneous trips to Berkeley. Whenever I go, I always feel a sense of calmness and relaxation once I step onto the streets and see smiling, welcoming faces. Sometimes I feel like it's a sort of therapy with great food selections, a little bit of craziness here and there and shopping of course!

A beautiful house, I forgot where, sorry if it's yours!

Cody's Books, I had to, for my friend Cody. Yes, that's my finger!

A beautiful little area that we found and a couple taking a nap!

Some of my finds!

Me & my friend posing after walking around, visiting various stores, almost getting lost and finally eating curry!

In all within a few weeks I've traveled to San Francisco, Berkeley and Santa Cruz. Traveling is something I love to do and nothing inspires me more than exploring new places and unexpecting the unexpected. Where do you love to travel/visit often? Pictures and posts about these journeys to come,

tier skirt cont.!

Here's the final outcome of my tier skirt assemble! It's nothing really different from before, I just added makeup, a feather head piece and flats to go with it for a sensational night at Blow Up in San Francisco. I don't go to clubs very often but this one was really fun- a lot of stylin' people!

Me in the center!

Ta-da! Nothing too complicated as I was dancing the whole night! and sorry I don't have good pictures of the feather head piece! If you're all curious this is what it mostly looks like-

(Thanks Ashley :P)

shirt to skirt

Today, after having my daily dosage of fashun~ reading, I recently stumbled upon the article Go Buy Now: Tier Skirts from which reminded me of this lovely cream colored tier shirt that I've been meaning to wear but has only seen the hangers of my closet. Sorry about the mess in the background (it was the only place where the shirt didn't blend in!) and oh, hay turtle...

If many of you aren't familiar with tier skirts, click the article up above or look at some I've picture below from! (Actually affordable ones, at least for me!)

( I have this one! :) )

Anyway, so it got me thinking of trying to wear the shirt as a skirt instead! Here are the results:

The picture shows it on a bit of a shorter side but it's not really. I think it's perfect for this dreadful summer weather we've been having and I think I'll be wearing it more often now! I'll probably wear it as a shirt eventually but for now I'll be pairing it with my lovely American Apparel leotard and a feather head piece. What do you think?

vintage flowers + bows

Lately I've been inspired by vintage flower fabric and bows!

These are so lovely and it makes me wish I knew how to sew :( The last one though looks like a table cloth I thrifted a couple of weeks ago :) I also made a bow hair clip today and I'll be making more soon :)

And to make it appropriate, with her flower corset top & grande bow, my favorite model, Miranda Kerr!

My favorites from: The Stella McCartney Resort 2009

Stella McCartney continues to amaze me every time with her refreshing chic yet bold designs and her Resort 2009 collection can do no wrong(well, she never can, really)! I absolutely love the colors & her creative way of pairing things together. Here are some of my favorites from her Resort 2009 Collection:

Ahhh, her style is so beautiful and inspiring!

Lauren Conrad's Beach Butterfly Collection

Ever since The Hills aired in 2006, I was a big fan until they announced that Lauren Conrad, former star from the hit MTV Reality Show, Laguna Beach was going to become an intern for Teen Vogue. Don't get me wrong, this girl (appears) to be nice, down to earth, sweet and what not but I asked myself, what did she have to offer to the fashion world? When the show Laguna Beach aired 2004-2005, (yes, I admit that I religiously watched this show) her style consisted of constant beach type attire- flip flops, tank top and jeans. Of course, let's not forget those occasional designer clothing and accessories her mother & father bought for her as well! However, nothing about her style was sensational or inspiring, it was actually more, typical and unoriginal.

Why Teen Vogue? Why did you cast her as an intern when there are hundreds of girls that are more interesting and fashionable? Or when there's a hundreds of girls dying for an opportunity to intern for you and you gladly hand it over to Conrad as if it's like a note to your best friend? I've thought about it for quite some time and I've concluded that the answer was for publicity but has since then resulted in infamy. On the show, Conrad has somewhat improved her style a bit but has continued to lack anything remotely new or inspiring. She launched her more overpriced Forever21-esque clothing line last year which brings me to the reason for this long, ranted post- Her new collection titled, the "Beach Butterfly Collection", which only increases my assumption of her bland taste, came out earlier this week.

Each of these pieces are priced of around $110-$220. Eh.

Karl Lagerfeld on MK: “I love a tiny woman in Chanel. Coco herself was tiny, so you don’t need to be a giant to look good in these. I like the way M.K. is mixing Chanel with other things. Life is not a fashion show, and I find a total designer look boring.”
