I'm gonna need more hangers.

i love getting packages! nothing like meaningful mail.

shirt, pants [jcrew] :: belt [express] :: shoes [ninewest] :: bag [chanel]

who deserves expensive bags at my age? this is my mother’s, i helped her pick it out a few years ago because she had wanted something classic but unexpected. you never see the backs of these kinds of bags on blogs.

coat [ewha street] :: collar [hongdae]

i realize now that my hesitation to buy clothes before sprung out of a sedentary life with sedentary needs. i was in seoul this weekend with the girls and the need to stand out when going out was there. i think that’s why i want these bright things again. i’ve always got somewhere to go. with minimalism, i just wanted to disappear glamorously. ok no really, but my wardrobe did. do i think too much through my clothes? i don’t even care that i do, i don’t know why i’m complaining. i just like to hear myself type i guess.

i also realized that it’s pointless to name most brands of korean purchases cuz they copy and paste things everywhere, so i’m citing where i purchased it instead. i hate fussy coats with lots of buttons and i actually hesitated when i saw it. do i hesitate too much?

acne vest [carolinesmode]

if i had a fashion tumblr, this would be one of those “instant reblog” moments. for the record, this isn’t about the vest being acne made (they can go fuck themselves for being stupidly overpriced), but the color slam drunk with an assist from the moto-vest. which reminds me again how much i want one, no, many. i think despite my goals of going for the most sterile of looks, i end up liking this long waistcoat look.

i’ve been trying to get another post ready lately, but its taking forever to collect my thoughts on my closet curating. its hard to bounce ideas off yourself on something so pressing! luckily i have Gibson Girl, but its still tricky.

other things i’ve been doing: seeing friends, dealing with a hang over (tolerance = ground zero!), watching star trek voyager, altering a dress.

jacket [DIY newyork&co] :: shirt [bdg] :: skirt [wish] :: bracelet [monki]

DIY tutorial post for this coming up! haven’t done one of those in ages.
