I Want...

I couldn't help but to share this collage from Natasha11. So punk rock yet pretty...I'm in LOVE.

I don't like flats, but every now and then, I'll bust out a pair just to help everyone around me to gain a little better perspective on my real height, haha...

Try Two

I just couldn't bear the idea of giving up wearing my studded boots with shorts, so here's my second attempt, which actually never made out of the door. Mainly because of my intense fear of stirring up the mall again.

What Not To Wear, At Least When Shopping In Norcal

Apparently a pair of studded ankle booties is all it takes to turn a few dozen heads, and get hit on by high school kids in this town. Ok, I need to start from the beginning. I was in one of my creative dressing mood this morning and decided against my better judgment to wear the new booties with my vintage Hemlut Lang cutoffs. The second I walked into the mall, two girls, technically store employees started making circles around me. Finally one of them came over to ask where I got my boots, and the other one asked what year is my Balenciaga and if she can touch it??!! Completely random, right?! As my shopping trip continued, I was practically stopped every 15 minutes either by some girl who wants to know where to buy the boots or by some guy who wonders how I'm able to walk in these babies. Most of the people looked at me with admiration, except for one girl, far as I know. When her guy companion told her to check out my shoes, the girl snarled and responded, she's probably a hooker. As soon as I heard that, I turned around to checkout the couple, (simply out of curiosity). Their faces turned into the color of washington apple when our eyes met...haha... Hey, this is a free country which means everyone's entitle to their opinions.
It's been fun, but I'll probably stay away from cutoffs and five inch stilettos for a while.

Eating Rampage in Fenway Park

This was my first time in the world renowned Fenway Park. The night started off nice and clear with a bit of wind chill. However, right before the start of the game, we were “blessed” with a down pour of rain storms! Talk about New England weather. I have say though, Red Sox fans are probably the loyalist fans a baseball team could ever wish to have, the stadium was at a near 100% capacity through out the whole entire windy, rainy game! What an inspirational experience, seriously.
As you can tell from the pictures, I had to put on a plastic cape which was practically made of saran wrap, in order to stay some what dry. But the game was fantastic. Red Sox won that night, for those of you who are curious.
I just have to end with a comment on Fenway Park's food, they have the most insanely delish crispy garlic fries I've ever had in a ball park.

Over The Knee Boots

JJB, hopefully these flat over the knee boots by Chinese Laundry is something of interest to you. You can find it here.


I always, or rather, I learned to dress based on how many meetings I have on a given day. Today is one of those days that I had to spend over 5 hours sitting in the meeting room, so something super comfy and warm is in order. Park Vogl makes some of the best fitting, work appropriate tees, which is just exactly what I need to get me through these brutal hours.

This is how I rock

I'm BACK! My bday trip to NYC and Boston was a BLAST! I just can’t say enough to thank the mastermind behind the trip. I've never had so much delish food in such a short period of time, haha...will post pictures of me stuffing my face soon as KK downloads them from his camera.
During the trip, we accidentally discovered that NYC recently lowered its clothing sales tax from 8.3% to 4.3%, hooray! I just couldn't resist picking up an amazing funnel collar leather jacket from Zara, along with some crazy psychedelic tights from Anna Sui. By the way, the 5” heel studded boots that KK order for my bday finally arrived! They are insanely high yet super comfortable when inserted with gel insoles, thank you Dr. Scholls!

I had to wear my skinniest skinnies with these boots for its first showing, which is probably not wise after a whole week of stuffing my face, but any other ways will just be wrong, either for these boots, or for my work. lol....

Boho Rocker

I love fashion, but I don't usually follow fashion weeks very closely, as most runways looks are too extravagant for the street if taken directly. But I do look to trends coming out of fashion weeks to inspire my wardrobe for the upcoming seasons, like most people. One of the collections that caught my eyes as being both runway worthy and street chic is Justin Timberlake's collection William Rast. Strange as it may be, after all it's a "celebrity collection", they've shown some amazing pieces, including quite a few perfectly studded and tailored jackets, hippie chic fringe boots, laid back shorts and tees... ahh...I can't wait to see them in the store. These boots are delish!

Audrey Kawasaki

I have to admit, I have very strange taste in many things, especially in art. Rarely do I try to share my obsession of the moment with people, as it is after all a very subjective form of presentation, and I'm not good at explaining the underlying reasons behind my attraction to certain artists or pieces. But I just couldn't contain my excitement after seeing the pieces Audrey Kawasaki showed in her solo exhibition in Rome. The paintings are absolutely gorgeous...check them out for yourselves, but keep an open mind.
For those of you who are not familiar with Audrey, she's a LA based artist who's known for her amazing wood panel oil painting of feminine yet erotically charged anime inspired girls.

Random Weekend Summary

The past long weekend was absolutely amazing with a few adventurous moments to it. We started it off with a game of bocce with a very large group friends and friends friend. Although according to one of them, it's a game for either the retired or the drunk, lol, we were thoroughly enjoying the 'competitive' aspect of the game. The pace of the weekend changed 180 degrees on the next day as we ventured out to the wild for some peace and quite. It's the second time we took the hiking trial and it's the second time we almost got lost. So instead of a 2 hour hike like we originally planned, we were walking for over 3 and half hours, which was to say the least, exhausting. But the day ended with some rock-band action with my cousin and his buddies, which again confirmed my calling. Let me just say, although I was NOT born as a singer (in fact, I should never handle a mic again in my life), but I'm an extremely 'talented' drummer! Who knew...
I'm in love with my new boots (by FaryRedRobin) paired with poofy skirts! Slightly odd, but so completely comfortable.

Geeking Out

Seems like it's been forever since I last updated this blog, and below are the two reason behind my long absence.
1) KK got me the coolest bday present ever, a Sony laptop with textured casing in white! My last laptop is 5 years old, and very much virus infested to the point that it has stopped functioning completely over the labor day weekend. KK sensed or rather heard an ear full of my complaints, being the santa that he is, he pick out this very sleek, Macbook-esk-without-Macbook-learning-curve for me. Mainly because I'm too cheap to spend money on electronics myself..haha..
2) On the same weekend KK got me the laptop, I finally decided to upgrade my phone! My wornout but still super sturdy Samsung was named the office dinosaur, you got the idea on how old it is. I took a leap and got an Instinct, which is definitely an iphone want to be, yet, without iphone's steep monthly plan, haha....
