IN THE LAND OF (MODERATELY PRICED) SHOES [August 11 2010 1:22pm]
CLARY in Taupe, $90, aldoshoes.com




BURSLEY in Taupe and Black, $90, aldoshoes.com


I have been looking around some quite some time for a decently priced comfortable (looking!) yet cute shoes. It is really impossible I tell you. I have my eye on some oxfords (from Marais Shoes to Miss Sixty), but for now..these Aldos will do.

RETURN OF THE GOOD OL' CLASSICS [August 07 2010 8:42pm]
 
I  always loathe when editors say that certain things are back in style. For the true stylish people, trends don't matter. They wear what they want and whenever they want. I for one have never been one to follow exactly what magazines tell you to 'Buy, Keep, and Toss.' I would always think that is such a silly thing to organize your closet by. Wear what you want and when you want! Perhaps it's just a lovely reminder for us folks who kindly neglected our threads? Case in point is the recent Fall 2010 collection from the genius Marc Jacobs. Slightly oversized dove gray coat with a long skirt and a lady like bag..I'm all over you Look #3!

demurely sexy [July 09 2010 1:29pm]
 







Marc Jacobs organza layered skirt, theoutnet.com
I remember seeing this and thinking, "Holy shit this skirt is perfect!" Indeed it is..I have never seen a skirt like this in my entire life. I wouldn't wear it to work, no, but how unique is this little thing? It's almost granny/secretary chic. WELLL good news..Friday means an extra 50% off select items from theoutnet.com and when I saw this was one of the selections..I jumped at the chance. Last one too!

magnifiques sous-vêtements [July 04 2010 2:09pm]









Jean Yu


The Lake & Stars
 

There's something about beautifully made lingerie..isn't there? Especially these looks from two amazing designers. They're all so simple, free of prints, and just so utterly elegant. Who says you need a significant other to display your impressive lingerie collection? Lounge around in these for whatever you're doing..just say no to sweatpants and ribbed tanks!

oh the joys to be a girl.. [June 30 2010 10:19pm]
 
VPL Posh tank


A.P.C Madras sailor pull-over sweater

GRRRR..just when I was getting settled on NOT purchasing anything and everything I like on sight. These two lovelies are part of La Garconne's online super sale..happening like now. I'm past justifying my reasons on buying them (Posh tank: The weather is getting hotter by the minute & APC sweater: it's a basic that will last a while). The navy version of the APC sweater is on ebay for much cheaper, so maybe I'll get that instead. They're both just so super chic, no?

Kirsten Dunst in Cannes, France wearing a Miu Miu Spring 2010 skirt
UGH..so glorious. This is perfect on so many levels.


Ann Taylor silk camp shirt in light ground pepper
Could this be THE perfect button-up blouse? 


Dries Van Noten Fall 2010
Ooof. I am loving the exaggerated silhouettes this season. Dries makes things so simple, but so elegant and refined.

and to conclude..

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CILLIAN MURPHY!
Here's to many years of creepy beautiful performances and gazing at your lovely eyes!

obsession-keira knightley's wardrobe [May 19 2010 11:19pm]
  

  

Whether or not she borrows items from designers..this girl always amazes me with her public appearance wardrobe pieces. Everything she is basically wearing, I want and totally would wear. Except..for the Miu Miu dog skirt in the first picture. That naked lady blouse in the same picture is worth dying for. It is so unique, but elegant at the same time. I tried so hard to locate it..called in the Miu Miu boutiques (even overseas!), but it never even got produced at all! Major bummer.  It was just a runway and PR piece. But once break hits..I'm going to look for places who specializes in custom fabrics and I'm going to see if I can make a similar pattern like the Miu Miu blouse and make a damn blouse just for myself. And with that face, you don't really need too much drama going on your clothes.

Miu Miu Spring 2010
Left-I've been salivating over that blouse (minus the crinkly upper sleeve) and collar ever since it came out. Sure naked ladies on a blouse sounds extreme but it's done in such a demure and elegant way! 
Right-Those pins! I would wear these on my cardigans and everywhere else! Again with my naked lady fixation..


Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds Tippi Hedren Barbie!
Ahhh how awesome is this! 


Lips vase, whotelsthestore.com
I have quite a kooky aesthetic, so I wasn't surprised that I would love this. 


The Gentlewoman Issue #1
From the founders at Fantastic Man (a favorite) comes The Gentlewoman! Fantastic idea indeed..and who better to grace its debut cover than Phoebe Philo?


Chloe Eau de Parfum
I feel like this would be one of my signature scents..


Chloe 'Edith' bag
So simple, rough, durable, elegant, sustainable..
One of the perfect bags ever..

 
Criterion Collection DVDs
The list goes on for how many Criterion DVDs I would like in my ever-expanding library..but these recent two are high on the list. Fassbender and Karina? Yes, please.

finally..the lineup for this year's sfiff has arrived! last year was my first attending and viewing and there were a lot of great films, but this year is overabundant with amazing films. honore! jeunet! lynch! green! swinton! schneider! on bart via my palm pre, i went through each film and quickly made my favorite picks: domain, cracks, vengeance, gainsbourg (je t'aime...moi non plus), i am love, to die like a man, transcending lynch, henri-georges clouzot's inferno, susa, lourdes, the loved ones, pirate utopias, la pivellina, making plans for lena, micmacs, solitude standing, and white material. reeeeally doubt i'll make it to all of the films, but when schedules come out april 1st, i'll plan accordingly..

one of those things.. [March 13 2010 2:53am]

As soon as I saw Catherine Zeta-Jones' hair in this photo..I dropped everything. This is exactly the way I want my hair to look-polished but still with a little flow. I'm itching to get my hair cut a few inches..by the hands of another. After too many disastrous attempts to control my mane..I took the reins and cut my own hair for years. I just think it's very funny that I have been growing out my hair for quite some time because I misssed my long hair..but now that I have semi-long hair..I want to cut it off. Strange.

It's about time I get a decent handbag that isn't a totebag. Totebags may be great for lugging around props and other shenanigans..but what about those days I actually feel like getting dressed up? Totebags don't really go well when you're dressed up..in my opinion. I haven't been seeing anything particularly interesting (my pickiness helps a lot haha), but when I saw this in Bazaar..ELLE? I knew it was worth a second look. At only a mere $40, it's definitely worth it. I'd have to physically check it out..make sure it's not some cheap cheap material..

 i know i know i know..haven't posted in ages. a lot has happened since. school is getting curiously harder by the minute. this week was brutal. the combination of being sick with getting up early and lugging heavy photo equipment around is not exactly my idea of a perfect day. i always look forward to friday and working. working is kind of like my relaxing time even though i'm working. i get to clear my head. finally got myself a twitter, but for a valid reason. it's my way of keeping up with MY life. sort of a personal diary/log. just for me...it'd be fun to look back on in the future. plus, i always have many mini moments where i want to record something, so this is perfect. i've been having kind of a mini breakdown this week too. doubting what i am doing now. but i realize that you have to be willing to make mistakes and even look like a complete fool sometimes. you won't always have those good days. i'm dying to already be on break..to break out my skirts and dresses. the day will come..

never give up, never give in, and never let go.

have been slowing watching really great films--> one of them being scott hicks' the boys are back. i've never seen more of a lush place. the acting is superb and the story just keeps reminding me to be more patient with life. second week of classes start tomorrow. i'm already feeling a bit maxed out. i've been sleeping earlier and waking up earlier, which is good altogether..but i am really not a morning person. i'd rather much sleep in. but the cold weather mixed with the light sun basking on face is rather nice. at one of the school labs right now..editing photos and deciding what to present for my classes tomorrow. studio at 9am tomorrow so i can have more options! at home i have 'new york, i love you' waiting for me. and probably a hot plate. as much as i hate being home, it's my home and the feeling is irreplaceable.
