천천히 [slowly]

ONLY ONE? OF YOUR HAND? yeah i’d be disappointed too, but what if i told you these korean nail stickers were like $2, lasted a week, AND glowed in the dark??? [note: use base coat and a little heat to prevent pealing]

yeah it wouldnt do it for me either. to be honest, there have been a few times where i’ve wanted to post but i couldn’t because i just didn’t have any pictures. i’ve just lost the desire to take pictures of myself. i’m far more into experiencing, living, really seeing what’s in front of me rather than looking back at the moment. not that i don’t love that, which is why i am lamenting a little. if i don’t photograph what i’m wearing, did i really wear it? i wish you could see how i’ve changed and what i’m like day-to-day. i wish i could see that too.

this is why i shouldn’t have nice things! i waste them away with neglect.

to be fair, i’ve recently come into some adult thoughts and adult concerns, nothing seriously bad, but serious nonetheless and i’ve been very busy being busy and i HATE it, but it’s necessary. the good news is that it’ll be over soon. very soon.

i can’t wait till aug 3rd. and now you know.

how great is that white onesie?  it makes black look better. i love how clean and creamy white on white on white is so much. i don’t think you know, i don’t think you understand.

so i’ve been thinking…should i get a pinterest…thing? i dunno if its big enough to be a proper noun, or if it’s just a blog or some new entity. anyway, i’m thinking i need a place to better visualize and access my inspiration pics. they just sit unsorted on my computer or get lost on this blog to be honest.

and i sort of regret it. when you get all pretty for a boy someone and things don’t work out, you can’t help but feel insulted embarrassed and a little naive hurt. this is how i relapse i suppose and i feel much more comfortable today.

i didn’t know whose bike it was, so i sat on it.

-Spinelli

spinelli and i did a guerilla photoshoot last sunday. these were my favorites. applause please for spinelli, she did a knock-out job on her own styling that outfit.

spinelli also has her own blog about her korean adventures, where she uses her own name and not silly bullshit nicknames like me. ch-ch-ch-check it out.

oh! i found out how to do my hair that morning via this. google “teddy boy hairstyle” and see what you get. so easy, but its not exactly perfect since my hair is layered. sadface.

dress [wannabe] :: shirt [manhole] :: skirt [mint] :: bag [somewhere in gaeksa]

so i can’t really apologize for that. here’s the top 5 round up:

1) i went to a film festival and saw like 12 movies.

2) a friend got engaged and i partied like i haven’t partied in awhile.

3) someone stole my iphone. i hate how you have to pay for life lessons when you get older. they’re free when you’re young.

4) i’ve been exercising, cooking and shopping more. life is super but i still have room to complain like an asshole.

5) one of my friends in the air force left yesterday. i don’t know how to say goodbyes. i’m much better at being angry and clingy.

when you find out one of your fav bloggers a) bought the real version of your knockoff, b) is rocking it harder than you, c) in the same month. i don’t know why but i’m freaking out a bit. i think it’s cuz i’ve been living so happily in my casual blogging world, not really trying to copy anyone, just passing by and appreciating… doot-dee-doo…annnnnnnd now it looks like i’m trying too hard. wah. i’m consoling myself by reminding myself that i didn’t like the extra snaps on the original anyway and that we have different styles. repeatedly. and rocking back in forth. somebody hold me please.

jacket [busan] :: tees [elves, now fashion] :: hat [DIY]

shopping notes:

i can’t go to thailand for long winded reasons, so i just decided to endure the 8 hr round trip to busan and buy this jacket. it is by far the most expensive thing i own and i feel pretty proud for spending/saving for it without any parental aide whatsoever.

i usually have a problem buying tshirts cuz they’re so basic (i have a problem buying basics in general), but these were just too charming to pass up. the length obeys the no-pants rule perfectly too.

i’ve also been knitting! made this hat for a friend. i modified this pattern to suit the chunky yarn. i dont really wear hats myself but i love the way they look so much on other ppl.

btw, my food/korean life tumblr is still alive and well. i’m a lot better about updating it, which seems to be the common cold with other bloggers.

some people know that i have a minimalist streak. i’ve been looking for a skirt version of my wednesday addams dress. damn you miu miu! and now i’ve also just spent way too long looking at chignon hair tutorial for my fun friday outfit. my school’s new higher ups are a lot more severe, so this is my mild attempt at demonstrating casual(er) friday.

vogue nippon [erin wasson, nov 2008]

i keep a lot of images like this in the back of my mind/harddrive when i take photos. i’m never gonna be as natural or as dope of a model as erin or any of the other models i admire. and you know what? i’m kind of ok with that.

i woke up this morning at 4:44 am and couldn’t go back to sleep. i went to sleep at 12ish. so i stayed up and got stuff done. i feel like a bird for once.
