Easy Does It

Simply chic, simply shoes.

Then There Was Light

image: google?
After months of shopping around for eyeglasses, yes I said months, I think today was my lucky day. Being a shoe gal, shopping for other things can admittedly get really annoying after a while, especially when I actually need something and can't find it. So, in the search for my visionary aids, I stumbled (literally, I was on my way to the Dollar Store--yeah I said it) upon a tiny optometric shop and found some cuuute Gucci glasses . They resemble the one's in the pic above but way cuter...post will surely follow. The good news doesn't end there, no it doesn't. I not only found one but two v. cute pairs of glasses that will be on the bridge of my nose quite soon! And to top all of this off, thank god for my fab insurance, I saved bucko bucks. All in a good day's work.

Helena Christensen's apartment in Vogue Paris May 09.

Daydreaming about re-doing my apartment. Actually, daydreaming about having the money to re-do my apartment. Oh, the woe's of student life.

So What's the Deal?

I'm not entirely sure why, but it seems as though this shot with Kanye West and Amber Rose is stirring up some talk. Is it Kayne's new Louis Vuitton campaign? Is it not? Who decided to feature Amber Rose? My dearest MJ, LV's creative director? Hmm. Either way, I don't really see the big deal in all of the commotion. We've seen fashion shots far more risqué than this. Honestly, since when is a (very toned) back and a butt crack a big hoot?

Just some random shots from weekends past. Driving across the Golden Gate with my sis on a warm Sunday...considering she usually gets her hand on fabulously fancy cameras, I think she faired well with my rinky single shot. Next, just an outfit I wore to a special event party at Mr. Smiths on 7th in the city.
BCBG heels, F21 Silk Jumpsuit, Free People bralette and vintage gold leaf earrings.

Like A Fish

images: wildfox or tigermilk...don't remember
This is exactly what I wish I were doing right now. Except with water shoes on. Yes, not the sexiest things, but honestly, the bottom of a lake is absolutely gross feeling. Instead, I am frying to death in my room, windows wide open with the sound of early night crackheads chiming in. Oh, the start of warm weather.

Need Your Help!

image: tigermilk
I am currently taking a course in social media and virtual communities (just now realized I've never really introduced myself...blog to come maybe? for now, I'm a UC Berkeley Media Studies student) and am conducting a study on online dating. If you would be so lovely as to take this very short survey for me I would appreciate it v. v. much!
Merci beaucoup :)

Listening to Carla Bruni, searching for french fables and posting about this gorgeous (french) gal.
Preparing for my next big trip I suppose.

Didn't I Say the French Do It Better?

images: yahoo
Its about time we step up our game because the French have done it again...made us look ridiculous, that is. The upcoming issue of French Elle is stripped down to the basics. Elle will feature eight French celebrities without make up or any retouching, almost in an effort to emphasize that beauty is skin deep. Now let me explain.
We've have collectively become a society that has plucked, pulled, stained, dyed our way to beautiful (and not one of us can deny it), fleeing from what beauty, what natural beauty we have inherently. April's Elle issue reminds us that if our notion of beauty is to be constructed out of our outward appearance, then so be it, but let us measure our beauty in its most natural form, in the skin we were born in.

When sleeping becomes a luxury, when your laptop feels like it's burning cause it's been working for hours straight, when you realize your alarm will go off in three hours. That's when you become delirious.

My favorite kind of beautiful is the one that doesn't try.

Those Shoes

Those shoes, those shoes, those shoes. How on earth do I get those shoes???

Andy, As Promised

images: google

Leader of the Pop Art movement, Andy Warhol explored every facet of popular culture and expressed his relation to it through his art. Gaining his inspiration from various musical outlets, Warhol harnessed his influences to help him enter the industry in a variety of ways. His art offered him the ability to perform across a myriad of mediums from music production, film-making, painting, photography...the list goes on! He "adopted" so to speak, The Velvet Underground and fused them with the talent of Nico, he created album covers for many of musics leading legends (The Rolling Stones, John Lennon), made his own television show to showcase new bands, created famous works of celebrities (Elvis, Marilyn Monroe) as well as produced films such as Sleep.

The exhibit at the de Young successful showcases the stages and dimensions of his work and his undeniable influence on popular culture. It is not only an enriching opportunity to explore a culture we are so deeply imbedded in, but also a seriously fun experience (when you see the bed room you'll know what I mean)! It runs through May 17th, but you won't want to delay!

Comfort Food

It is not rare to see food and fashion in close distance to one another and seeing how they are two loves of my life, it is only sensible to post something here. In an attempt to avoid the on and off rain today, me and the boyf headed over to the city to visit the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park for the Andy Warhol exhibit (more to come on that soon). We've developed a little tradition as far as days like this go...hop on over to the de Young for some educational-good-times and then mosey our way over to 9th Street to grub at Park Chow. Defined by their rich and wholesome comfort food and homely, cozy atmosphere they've never failed to provide delicious food and fabulous service.
Although we did order some of their less aesthetically pleasing dishes (plus, pictures don't do taste justice) we left more than satisfied. The boyf dined on their pot-roasted ribs--causing great jealously in me since I'm temporarily off the meat--and I enjoyed the veggie lasagna. Like total pigs, we also shared a big bowl of mac-n-cheese (this is SO seriously good you'd be crazy not to try it!!!) and some Great White's to drink. Deciding we'd completely betrayed the boundaries of a proper sized meal we skipped out on my favorite dessert: waaarm ginger cake with pumpkin ice cream. Ahh.
I can't tell you enough how much I adore this place so I highly suggest you take a trip out to the Sunset and chow down at Park Chow.

ps: wow, I really did it with the bold today...

Speaking Of...

...Fairy tales and stories, apparently Dolce and Gabbana still get it. Check out these sequined wedges! They could so easily be used in those celebrity Disney advertisements...Dorthy obviously claims the red ones and I think Cinderella could rock the blue pair! Honestly, how could we not still love such tales?

Le Conte de Fées

The latest class discussion surrounding fables and fairy tales lead my professor to ask the class if we thought adults were still amused by such stories...no one raised their hand but me. How could we, or I, not be enraptured by tales of lands far far away, of princesses, princes, knights and dragons? While wading around in my surprise, I decided it was absolutely necessary to post some throw back pictures (well not thaat far back, just December) from a feature in Vogue Paris on Stephanie of Monaco just to remind us that fairy tales are real and are worth believing in.

F**k You Very Much

A few years ago while perusing the racks in a Paris shop, I overheard Lily Allen's voice on the little stereo for the first time...the song, nearly disgustingly sweet with lyrics anything but, totally grabbed my attention (British accents never hurt either). It was like...Brit pop...gone...edgy? So cliché sounding, I know, but its so true. Behind a high pitched voice and sugary melodies, her lyrics are definitely different than those coming out of Britney's mouth.
My sis, a fellow Lily lover, and I went to the Warfield last night to see Lily play with Natalie Portman's Shaved Head (totally new to me, but I think I'm diggin). The show proved absolutely fab--complete with sequined outfits (Lily), wayyy to intense "dancing" spasms (NPSH) and wine filled drunkness (Lily, again).
Was sooo great, just had to share :)
