I'm gonna need more hangers.

nothing, and i mean nothing, will ever stop me from loving this sweet, sweet saturation.

tights [gunsan]

this was taken in early dec, yeah i’m way behind, i know.

why is it that i have a nice camera and i neglect to use it these days? or rather, i neglect to share what i’ve captured? do i just like to have nice things? this is why i shouldn’t have nice things.

meet capucine’s back. at least, she’s capucine when she’s 6 shots in. that was such a lovely girls night of pretending to be someone i’m not.

i don’t usually do too many video posts or mv posts and i don’t know why. hrm. anyways, is it possible that a woman can sound and look even more beautiful than ever? there’s a punk post riot girl in me that wishes she was impervious to bullshit and fear and getting old, but i don’t think i can ever outrun those things like CL or get a tattoo. i would love one on the inside of my upper arm. wouldn’t it be cool to be a business woman with a history someday?

tulle skirt without the elastic band: this may actually be improbable, but this skirt has the raw hem tufts on the outside to mask the tackiness of elastic at least.

green office girl barbie shoes exactly as pictured. same brand too preferably. BUT WHERE?

this look has been bored into my mind. in its crisp silhouetted perfection it manages to squeeze in bits of whimsy, untucked polka dot blouse + cobalt socks. this is probably the most perfect koreanized outfit i saw myself potentially getting into. its like swedish girl style, but more playful. UGH, painfully wanting.

found this magazine at an angel-in-us cafe, definitely my new favorite find. its a dual cover zine, for boys and girls. need to get paid so i can buy this months issue, along with vogue girl and elle girl and nylon. are zine subscriptions possible here? i never see those annoying tags sticking out.

currently into the androgynous differences of these looks. slowly building my collection of white collared shirts and my new found obsession for knits. and still on the prowl for the perfect leather jacket. i should stop traveling so i can throw down serious coinage for one when i get back to seoul. or japan. :D

i realized that if i don’t blog, i end up not thinking about what i’m buying and careless wanting ensues. i need to do this to remain focused and own up to the principles of quality and thoughtful style exploration that i worked so hard to uphold before. otherwise, i’m just going to bleed out fast fashion again, which is so not ok.

vogue china [aug 2011]

i take back what i said about tao here. she is most definitely not a one trick pony kind of girl (she’s at least two). its supposed to be an homage to freja, but tao totally steals the show. now i wanna cut my hair, wear heavy make up daily, get a star tattoo, and other style things i really shouldn’t engage in. god she’s breathtaking, i can’t get over it! *stares*

ugh disregard that last post (i suddenly decided it was blegh, though i still do like those shoes).

anyways i’ve been infected with thoughts of tulle again and i need to get them out of my system.

I want a wardrobe that consists solely of dearly loved items that give me joy to wear. Objects that I always look forward to wearing – I’m quite sure such a wardrobe is utterly attainable.

-Dead Fleurettes

while i don’t follow her manifesto of stark and disciplined minimalism, i was completely taken with what she said here. its so simple but something i never considered to the fullest: its not just about having pretty things, many things, things things, but things that are precious to me. that should be sufficient and enduring. if i would just avoid acquiring unnecessary things, i could have more of the kinds of pieces i’ve always wanted. with this goal in mind, eliminating everything in between has become easier. it took a lot of tumblr viewing, a lot of closet photos to realize it makes me kind of nauseous to see those vast walk in closets, shoe racks piled high with barely worn louboutins. i don’t want that anymore. i’d love to have a humble collection of my favorites and my go-tos, as pictured above, and that’s what i’m going to continue to go for.

side note: owning less does pose an interesting paradox however, as posed by The Guardian: it doesn’t absolve you of your material attachment. you’re still fixated on “stuff.” meh, i’m ok with that. i just want stuff that i actually like.

for more closet inspiration, you can check out my tumblr (same name, hehe), stylelikeu, and the selby, among countless others.

omgaaaaad i can not wait for weather that will justify excessively large knits. minus 10 degrees! 10! degrees! :D

i wish i could knit one of these for myself. must acquire loom. and flock of sheep.
