29SEP2014 // DURRTY HOTDOG

LULU DK Jewelry Tattoos (PH)

Only my close friends know my secret dream of being a DJ. So when Xtina Superstar sent me an SMS inviting me to guest DJ in this month's DURRTY HOTDOG at Black Market the Saturday before last (yes, this post is very late), I flipped (with excitement). So I know nothing about DJing, but it seems like everyone had fun. I know I did! In case you're wondering, I played a bunch of trap / rap / and remixes of some nostalgic music. Thanks so much to the HOTDOG crew for the awesome night and for your patience in teaching this rookie! Xx

19SEP2014 // PARADIGM SHIFT


Sunnies Studios / Vest: Paradigm Shift / Pants: UNIQLO / Kasumi Envelope: Wabi Sabi

I've been using this vest over everything lately. It's a nice finishing touch to any lazy outfit. I found Karl's (inkarlcerating) online shop, Paradigm Shift, one day, and was really excited to find that there were still a few stocks available for purchase!

Dear Karl, please make more clothes! <3 p="">

29AUG2014 // TWISTED CLASSIC



Sunnies Studios / Asymmetric Shirtdress: c/o AstoGroup / Lace Cycle Shorts: American Apparel / Sneakers: EYTYS / Bag: Vintage Il Bisonte


Shirt dresses were never really my style. This one, however, caught my attention due to the pleasantly strange hem. Loving it being literally edgy.

In other news, I thought I'd do some photos before the purple washes out to pinkish red again.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! X

15AUG2014 // SQUARISH

Sunnies by Charlie / PVC Knit Top: Zara / Drawstring Shorts: Uniqlo / Ayahko Bag: Wabi Sabi / Crepe Sole Brogues: Kurt Geiger


Keeping things super simple in this week's post. I love the boxy form that the top and shorts separately take- the top because of the bonded knit + PVC; the bottoms because of the pleats despite the soft viscose feel. In a recent exchange, a friend asked me what my priorities in dressing were. My top priorities, I realized, were comfort and silhouette. Comfort because I really am too lazy to power through the day in anything painful or too constricting, and silhouette because I get bored easily and love to try different things. Hey, so, I'm (slightly) consistent after all!

08AUG2014 // NEW CROPS









 Drape Top: Giordano Ladies / High Waist Zipper Pants: American Apparel / Ayahko Bag: Wabi Sabi / Mules: Zara

I've been playing around with crop tops more lately and keeping an eye out for different shapes and sizes. Here is one super versatile knitted gem. I think it was originally supposed to be worn different ways using the drapes with a pin, but I love how it looks just like this. A big thank you to high waisted pants and skirts to hide any evidence of laziness/lack of exercise!
