My relationship with Autumn weather in Los Angeles is a love/hate one. Usually the days consist of freezing mornings and hot afternoons. As you can probably predict, it causes a confusing outfit dilemma. I want to wear shorts for the afternoon but don’t want those goosebumps in the morning. Well, I can’t complain too much. Some cold weather is better than hot weather every day! This is an outfit I wore over the weekend with a frilly top I got long ago and never featured on my blog. I’m always obsessed with layer-able items since they add really great dimension to an outfit.

Officer Jenny Costume
I handmade my Halloween costume this year! After much stress, blood, and tears I finally ended up with this gem. Do you recognize me? I’m Officer Jenny from Pokemon! I used to watch Pokemon when I was in elementary school and this costume made me really nostalgic. I was really happy with the way my whole outfit came together! Everyone is really astounded that I hand made it so I couldn’t be more proud! t should’ve made the hat a bit shorter but other than that, ba-da-bing ba-da-boom! ;)

The most carefully coordinated outfits always have the sense of “why didn’t I think to do that?” Sometimes with patterns, sometimes with colors, sometimes with textures. I love creating intricate color palettes with my outfits. This outfit seems to first appear as only a combination of dark turquoise with maroon. But if you look deeper you’ll see my the colors you find in my vest, my belt, my headband, and my handmade brooch. All coming together like a harmonious tune.

Choies recently contacted me about being sponsored and I jumped at the chance! I love all their stuff and shipping was incredibly quick! They have a great section on two piece suits and I combed through it looking for my favorite ones. Matching sets are incredibly versatile. They look great together and function as separate pieces at the same time. Two for the price of one? Can’t ask for more! This two piece set is so chic and incredibly comfy! So soft, I feel like I’m wearing pillows!
My latest nail design (I’m obsessed with designing my own nails!)

My outfit is a little trendy, a little preppy, and a little Charlie Chaplin today. Seems like I’m wearing black and white more often nowadays. Back when I was blonde I refused to wear black because it felt like it didn’t complement my hair, haha how silly I was… black matches everything! Perhaps that’s why New Yorkers are obsessed with it. Black is back!!

Yearning for the Breeze
Finally the heat wave here in LA is calming down! The shade is actually… cool and sometimes even chilly! Really I’m just counting down the days until fall so I had to throw on an outfit to reflect that. Call it my “rain dance” outfit.

I’m late to posting this outfit but I gotta admit it’s one of my favorites! I snatched this amazing Lazy Oaf x Nasty Gal crop top the moment Nasty Gal had their sale and paired it to a complimentary black & white striped skirt. This hat is from a little stand I see in Little Tokyo all the time—Japangeles. I’ve been wanting one of their hats for awhile and finally gave in when they released their floral caps. My love for Japan and Los Angeles is never-ending…together it’s explosive! Also, more love to Von Trash Jewelery for my amazing Rugrats necklace and obnoxiously large cross. =D

Belated Independence Day
Hey everyone! This is a belated post of a simple outfit I wore on the 4th of July for Independence day. Just a simple red, white, and blue outfit for a comfy celebration with friends =) Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Gold-Tipped Kicks - LeBunny Bleu
Le Bunny Bleu contacted me about doing a review on their shoes and I jumped at the chance! I got the cutest gold-tipped shoes with a hint of red in the wedge! I love how unique they are and also how comfy they are. The wedges are a foamy material which makes them super comfy to walk in and really light! I paired my shoes with a simple red white and blue outfit (with socks to match!!)—the perfect everyday summer casual outfit. Thank you Le Bunny Bleu! Make sure to check out their adorable collection here!

I was feeling under the weather and got behind on my posting, I’m sorry! The fact that my boyfriend is up north right now hasn’t helped either. I get so lonely without him!
Anyway, this is an outfit full of my latest obsessions: oversized shirts, platform shoes, & obnoxiously large bling! Semi-inspired by the amazing Ruby Gloom from Hong Kong (without even coming close to her radness). I wore this out to a great day with some of my friends at a “Taiwanese Nightmarket” at the Rose Bowl here. Of course having been to a real one in Taiwan, nothing could compare but at least my belly was happy at the end of the day ;)
I got my necklace custom cut from Paula over at Von Trash Jewellery! She does the most amazing 90s inspired stuff and I’ve been wearing all of them one at a time, showing them off. I almost wanted to keep it a secret to myself but that would be unfair to her! Go check out her work, she does all the cutting by hand and it’s rad as hell!!!
