High Rise

Realized I absolutely can't do math. 11 days until Spain. I must've let my excitement allow wishful thinking.

V. excited to announce that I have purchased my tickets to see Coldplay, my absolute musical favorite, at the Shoreline--my favorite place to see them perform. I have seen them twice already on their X&Y tour and must declare that their show at the Shoreline was by far one of the most amazing musical experiences I've had. There are so many talent artists performing this summer, I can already feel my heart getting rich and my wallet getting emptied. Regardless, you'll know where to find me.

DIY on the Prowl

Why didn't I ever buy a BeDazzler? $19.95 plus shipping and handling can take you (and an old blazer) a lonnng way. Thinking, thinking.

You Belong to Me

Lacking all sense of inspiration, the motivation to post anything has dwindled lately as well. However, watching Grease and John Travolta and the gang dance around in shiny metallic silver absolutely sparked my interest. Never do I tire of all that shines. Ooh the power of sparkles. Undeniable.

Boy by Band of Outsiders on Kirsten Dunst. Easy going chic. Perfect for dealing with the changing Bay weather.

Counting Down the Days

images: styleandthecity, thesartorialist
20 days to go. Exams have finally finished. That headache is done and gone. Now I can start getting excited. In 20 days, I will be in Madrid. Floating around Spain until I end up in Paris where I can feel my French-jealousy in person. Ahh. Can't even contain my excitement. The inspiration just waiting to come seeping in from all angles, the smell of a beautiful city and lots and lots of delicioussss bread. Counting down the days.

Party Like It's 1999

image: thecobrasnake
It's cram time, ladies and gentlemen. Tuesday, or as I'm referring to as Hellday, will demand 12 straight hours of exams. Hard exams. Exams that I'm v. not prepared for. So, to keep me chugging along through the next few days I've decided that Hellday evening will be a time for serious celebration. Serious. Hopefully, after successful exam taking, successful celebration will take place. Just to make sure, I hope we all end up looking like this. Cause it looks like she was seriously celebrating.

Beauty and the Beast

images: theselby
Having grown up in a house where fairytales meant much more than bedtime stories, fairytales have always held a special meaning for me. They've showed me what love can look like, helped foster my imagination and taught me that dreams can always come true. Sure it sounds cheesy and probably makes me out to be the subject of some psychotherapy study (hehe, can you tell I go to CAL Berkeley?), but truly, I love fairytales. As a child, one of my favorites was Beauty and the Beast because, amongst many, many reasons, Belle was not only beautiful but intelligent and loved the library as much as I did! Since then, I have always dreamed of having a room in my (dream) house dedicated solely as a library. My own personal collection spanning so high towards the ceiling, I'd need a special rolling ladder to reach them all.
These photos from the home of Sofía Achával and Thibault de Montaigu (stylist and author perpectively) remind me of this very dream. Oh, just the thought...

Just Chillaxin

After studying for hours all I've felt like doing was sitting outside and enjoying the sunshine. Although that only lasted for a bit as I'm back inside in front of my computer screen, it was a much needed little break. Just the thought of school being near over gives me happy shivers. Ahh.

Rise and Shine

image: baytobreakers
This Sunday marks the 98th annual Bay to Breakers race in San Francisco. It's wacky and wild San Franciscan reputation that precedes it is nothing compared to actually experiencing the madness. I have participated in this Bay Area tradition for 17 years already and have no plans of stopping. So how about you get dressed up, put your walking shoes on, grab some beer and come join the party! See you there!

Chanel No. 5

Full of beautiful, rich and vibrant colors the director of Amelie and dear Karl have collaborated to produce a short film advertisement for Chanel No. 5 Perfume. Starring my favorite French actress, Audrey Tautou, the film expresses the fragility of any love but with the bold spirit of the French. Admittedly, I enjoy the first one with Nicole Kidman more but nevertheless, this short film can speak volumes for itself.

As I posted long ago, MJ has come out with a swim line. I have anxiously awaited the moment when I could don one of the swimmers I've been dreaming of. Summer being one of my fav times in the year, I love love love picking out new suits to lay around in. Unfortunately, like his latest collection, I am not entirely impressed. I surely thought I would have had more trouble finding pieces I didn't like rather than one's I do. These three are the cutest suits I have seen so far. My search is not over, but it is starting off under a gray cloud. Wish me luck!

New Revelation?

images: olsensanonymous
Recently, I decided that I do in fact like Mary-Kate Olsen. I have now concluded that I'm pretty sure I like her sister, too. While they both have undeniable style, neither is so predicable as to label them as this way or that way and put them in a box. This fact is what I like most about them, they stay true to the heart of their style yet they are ever-changing. This chameleon form they both carry allows for some stunning transformations. Thinkin I love it.

Warning: Possible Self-Esteem Destruction Follows

images: lefashion
Having been a sick, festering pile of flu--and thank god not that nasty Swine everyone's up in kahoots about--I have been absent from the fashion world and have not even managed to lift a copy of Vogue for more than 2 seconds (and if you know me at all, I spend days to get through one of those bad boys). What I have managed to do, however, is eat. Eat to my heart's content. But only to my heart's. My poor belly hates my guts. Literally. Sad story, but true. So, now finally returning my gaze to the world of fashion also means returning my gaze to a world of beauties who have surely not spent the last 7 days eating every form of bread possible. Hence the title of this post. But now I am back so hopefully this binge will be through. Again, hopefully.

As dearest Karl says, "fashion is the healthiest motivation for losing weight."

The NY Times online travel section (an absolute fav of mine) decided to show my hometown some love. This thrills me for sure as Oakland is not usual seen as a vacation destination--as its often rough and sometimes unfair reputation gets around--but I must say that it probably could have done a better job. Maybe this will be a future task to take on for myself...hmm. Just a thought.

Monday Follows Suit

For one of the first times in a long time, I had absolutely zilch planned for my weekend. Typically, being my psycho-stressed self, there is always something I must get done or something else I've tied myself to. So this past weekend, although I was constantly on the move, was completely void of my usual weekend stress. I woke up late (10am is my version of late), hung with the fam, accompanied my sis to see A Mid-Summer Night's Dream, read Interview and realized that I do actually really like Mary-Kate Olsen. Quite satisfactory if I might say.

Lily Does It Again

According to Elle UK, Karl has set his sights on my loveliest Lily to be the new face of Chanel handbags. Supposedly a muse to the great K (getting her front row seats to all of his shows, lucky lady) he will photograph Lily himself at the campaign shoot next week. To quote Zoolander, yes, I'm doing it, my favorite Lily looks now to becoming one of my favorite slashies. Oh, what a wonderful world.

Bluer on the Other Side

I can't decide which one I love more, the funky cut-out Wang sweater I've been lusting after for what feels like forever or those gorgeously green I have to choose?

Anxiously awaiting my new set of eyes...
