I'm gonna need more hangers.

i’ve wanted to do hair tutorials for awhile but honestly, i don’t think i have the patience or the consistency to do them well. again, sorry for the lies and broken blog promises. for my updos to be successful, i need dirty-ass hair, like 3 day old hair, a bit of wax, and muchos bobby pins/small hair ties. this particular do was constructed from two hair pony tails close to each other in the back and a small bunch of hair at the crown scooped back.

i meant to post a valentines day outfit, but the photos are on my iphone cuz i’m an apple asshole now. i’m this close to macbook pro/ipad acquisition. i’m not even sure if i’m kidding at this point. my father asked me if i wanted one for my birthday; my friends and i have been oogling the ipad for no reason.

we all want nice things. i think i’ll buy something silver in the meantime that i’ve been meaning to get. my leather jacket will indeed have to be something i save for. i also want to go to thailand. and eat.

yes, i’m aware i am wearing one of the dresses i condemned. eh, might as well, i’m cold and it’s fuzzy.

pre fall 2012 [theyskens theory]

i can’t fight it anymore. i’m a thigh-skins girl. sometimes oversubscribing to fashion feeds will make you sick and tired and always wanting. its nice to come back to a few of my favorites now and then and get reminded of the things i’ve always really wanted but never got because i get magpie sidetracked. leather/hot/silver pants are still very much those things. also, now i wanna dye my cowboy boots silver and wear more sheer maxi dresses when i get back to sweet ole texas. yeah, your baby girl is a lil homesick.

regrettable purchases of 2011

that outburst was to my would-be husband. currently i imagine him to have a rather charming and archaic name and to be very not asian.

anyway, it’s funny how when i want to get rid of things on my hanger/wall of shame that i often think “aw no…didn’t i once love you for a reason? can’t we make this work afterall?”

the answer should always be a resounding no, though its never an easy one.

1) as in love as i am with the faux fur collar, i just never came around to the olive color and it never fails to turn me off.

2) impulse buy, it looked great at the time but i hardly ever know what to pair it with. it’s a little too costume-y and all i do is stare at it. i’ve worn it twice in the past 3 months.

3) impulse buy, out of necessity. the stripes don’t line up. i am so annoyed at myself for not catching it.

4) adore that neckline, but the bow is too wilty and i think it’s too childish now.

5) augh i’m such a heart whore, i buy them fast and easy, and then i’m stuck with cheap ass quality that i can no longer stand. it puckers, it’s not long enough to tuck in, it wrinkles disgustingly around the embroidery. it’s infuriating.

and do you know what these all have in common? they were all cheap or on sale. HMMMMM. the sooner i get rid of these, the better. i can’t believe i won’t be able to ebay for another 6 months. lord help me.

sigh. the war is far from over.

i’ve officially started saving for a black leather jacket, as in made a little jar and put change in it, made its picture my wallpaper on my iphone as a reminder. this picture doesn’t really give that away, but the fact that i’m always going back to a silhouette i don’t own but adore goes to show that i really need to stay more focused and buy things i actually really want. also, this jacket is just boss.

actually i’m not really saving for it, i’m trying to get through this month and so i can buy it on my next paycheck. ah young and financially irresponsible. whoooooooo.

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

shirts [muji, e hyphen gallery] :: lingerie [risa magli] :: heattech shirt [uniqlo] :: socks [tutuamma]

i splurged on the most beautiful lingerie masquerading as ordinary underwear in Japan, among other things that are near perfection. i’ve never own anything so unapologetic-ally girlie. i’m always so much better at budgeting in a foreign country than i am with a full debit card. its annoying and a habit i need to fix. one of many things i need to fix in the new me.

these past weeks have been made of relief and pain. on one hand, i now know what feelings to follow to plan my next steps. on the other, i think i just let a soul mate walk on a plane as i held myself in my throat.
