I'm gonna need more hangers.

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.

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.

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.

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.
