sorry for the sudden disappearance. summer is the most chaotic time for my work. i have been busy shooting weddings on the weekends and editing photos on the weekdays. there hasn’t been many opportunities for cute outfits, since i’m either in my all black ninja “uniform” or the sloppiest and most comfy t-shirts and shorts. i finally had a break this weekend, and just in time for the fremont summer solstice parade! beautiful sunshine, naked bicyclists, seattle hippies, flamboyant costumes, carny food… best of all, a reason to wear my favorite flower headband!
after a very “sweet” outfit last week, i thought i’d change it up again and go for the total opposite direction this time. enter: all black, snake skin pattern, leather pants… the works. i had to throw in the white shoes and bag to make the outfit a little less predictable. personality disorder? identity crisis? whatever it is, i just know i’m having fun with it.
you probably can’t tell from all the black and white outfits i’ve been posting that i’m actually a big fan of pastel, especially any variations of pink. in my closet, there has been many sherbet pieces collected and neglected over the years. i’m drawn to the femininity and warmth of the color, but also intimated by its sweetness at the same time. like this marc by marc jacob striped camisole that i bought almost 10 years ago (one of my very first designer pieces.) i think i might have worn it total of 3 times in fear of looking too “cutesy.” i guess the bows probably didn’t help the case, but i think it’s for that very same reason that i love this piece so much. i just can’t seem to part with it because it makes me feel so happy and girly every time i see it… even if it’s just hanging in the closet.

lately, i can’t stop daydreaming about living in a beautiful parisian apartment. the chevron wood floors; the soaring high ceilings; the elaborate, yet delicate moldings; contrasted against modern furniture with clean lines… it’s impossible to describe how fabulous these homes are! let’s just look at some pictures instead.
super soft and loose clothing paired with edgy accessories and a peek-a-boo of skin. somehow this outfit is just as sexy as it is comfy.

after catching up on a dvr’ed marathon of my favorite tv show, the rachel zoe project, i was finally convinced to dust off my bell bottom jeans. why did i stop wearing these anyway? they literally elongate the legs and balance out the hips like no other. these jeans are bananas. by the way, how maj is this h&m leather jacket from the new icon collection? not going to lie, it’s kind of my favorite piece from this collection. when i found it on the rack this week, i literally died.
ok, that’s all the rachel zoe catchphrases i can think of right now. did i miss anything else?

this is my poor man’s tribute to alexander wang’s spring 2013 collection, which is one of my favorite collections this spring. i tried to imitate his structured fluidity and the genius way he plays with sheer and solid to create depth on a monochromatic canvas. i paired the all white assemble with a row of gold rings from asos, reminiscence of balenciaga’s super popular rings set. as cute as these rings are, they are also extremely uncomfortable. i think it’s definitely one trend i won’t be practicing often.
