I hate these shoes. I hate that I hate them too. They’re new. I bought them a year ago at San Marcos, but never got around to wearing them out because I felt they were for special occasions only. See, I had a pair before them, and ruined the back heel from excessive wear. Also, I wasn’t aware of shoe hospitals in those days, but that wired my brain to thinking somethings are meant for SO wear only and should be respected as such. But that was shortsited of me, for I could not have forseen these being just the teensiest too big. I nearly fell out of them twice and have never had such difficulting navigating around in them. I felt like I was wearing two boats. Sigh, it’s just too tragic.

On a better note, I loved the looks of my top laying today. The ascot tie is both a throwback to my HS self when I used to do this with this scarf (cause I didn’t know what else to do) and a wink at Freddie from Scooby Doo. I took some cues from dapper old men in the Sartorialist’s shots and tucked my ascot into my cardigan (though you can’t see). My suitemates said it looked something Blair Waldorf would wear. Btw, I don’t watch Gossip Girl and after the many comparisons between my style and the show’s audacity, I feel like I should.

My favorite color is white. I love how crisp it looks and so this morning I thought, to hell with it, I’m gonna try to go monochromatic today. The result was close to what I wanted, but sadly, I’ve left a lot of necessary belts and shoes at home. The look seems incomplete to me…missing a jacket or something more…I can’t put a finger on it. Speaking of fingers, check out my new rings (the metal looking ones):

I’m trying to build up my accessories collection again. It was at the height in high school and somewhere I just decided I had too many, so I stopped. I’ve always loved punk things (studs esp) and so I’m going to be popping into Hot Topic again. I never thought I’d hear myself saying that. Talk about throwback.

My entire suite managed to wear black today. It was weird to notice we coincide in our dressing vibes occasionally. Weird but cool. Also, Killerspin’s camera is way better than mine. Sigh, I did a poor job picking this camera. The only good about mine is that its pink. Well that’s what I get for being superficial.

My boyfriend left his watch in my room and I wore it to return to him. However, I ended up dressing myself around it and so he let me wear for the rest of the day. XD!

So I sent my brother home to fetch me my stuff and I have his camera to use if I wear cool stuff this weekend. Highly doubtful, since when I’m with K-drama, I just wanna lounge around and stuff my face.

My hair looked so sweet this morning. It reminded me of Sasuke from Naruto, but you can’t see how¬† well it solar-flared out from the side of my head in this pic. I posted a different version on my Weardrobe account, but it still doesn’t quite do it justice. I decided to go with carnial focus and had some cool layering going on around my neck. The grey dress is new btw; an H&M find in LA. I havn’t worn this beautiful ebay dress at school yet, so I loved busting it out and not looking like a milk maid. Also, I had this misconception about my neck being too short to handle the ruffle collar full on buttoned and that isn’t really the case. Yay!

My camera died and I think my camrea charger is at home so…there may be some issues tomorrow.

Anywho’s, my hair today seriously made me consider short hair in the future. But as Jen-Jen warned, I’d have to keep the back of my head in mind as well.

This jacket turns every outfit into a power outfit. It’s the shoulder pads. The slit in the skirt (yeah, that’s actually where its supposed to be) demanded heels and a Balenciaga pose from Fall 08, so I did my best. I needed more shoulder shrugging though. I’m still nursing my sprained ankle back to normal, so it’s still not as easy to walk in heels as it used to be.

I contrasted the image more, to emphasize the metals of each necklace. Should I adjust pics to make them look better or just have them as is? Hmmmm…

Raining, cold, wet, gross morning followed by pleasantry! Strange strange indeed. Anyway, havn’t worn this top in public in public since last year. Don’t know why. I wore a white sweater this morning and the outfit overall was a bit too prissy I think. It’s charming, but not exactly what I was looking for.

Is anybody else having the hardest time getting up? God, after weeks of 12 hr dream sleep, it is so painful to get up now. It’ll take me a week to readjust. Blegh, can’t think straight or anything. Oh well! Tomorrow is another day!

Today is the first day back from winter break. How evil is an early start?

BUT! I wore my new jacket and I felt infinitely lighter, cheery, and huggable. Everyone seems to have different interpretations about how it looks (cloud, marshmellow, comforter, eskimo, cake, etc) and it delights me greatly. I didn’t really know how to style it, other than wearing it, so I just thought, tight on bottom, poof madness on top. I wore a lot of metal rings and hardcore earrings (though you can’t see them) to also balance out the cream puff appeal.

Today was pretty great though. Met a girl from Lovett, musi, with a killer cute head to toe navy/black look. Ha! It can be done.

Btw, I absolutely LOVE my pink pants. Thank you LA shopping, you’ve been so good to me.
