Today's Inspiration


The weather here has been insane! I woke up this morning to pouring rain and roaring thunder, but it quickly became sunny and warm, and then it thunder stormed again, then hot. So confusing!

P.S. Don't forget to check my chictopia page ;)

Today's Inspiration


Went to South Coast Plaza today with Elana & Alena...and oh my. New stores have opened up (like Balenciaga and Christian Louboutin), and we spent the day running into such stores and staring in awe at all the delightful garments and accessories. Shame the economy is doing so poorly, it makes even dreaming for designer items more impossible than ever. I did find two *adorable* dresses at H&M, (no where near as expensive as say, Chanel, but unfortunately even a $40-$50 dress is pushing the limits for me), but I plan on going back with my dad tomorrow to see if I can manage getting them. :)

Today's Inspiration


Thanks everyone for the lovely compliments! I promise to add to my wardrobe soon, and hopefully I can convince someone to take me to LA to purchase cheap fabric so I can make my own things. :)
Speaking of such, I really need to finish my FIDM project!

P.S. Friday is International 'Hug a Vegetarian' Day! :D I will officially be a vegetarian for a year in October, and I don't plan on quitting any time soon.

Just know that I'm fragile.

I just want to let everyone know that if you would like to keep updated on my daily outfit posts, they have been officially moved to Chictopia. My outfits are no where near the fabulous point in which I'd like them to be, so I'd rather just use the blog to maintain all photos of inspiration rather than tainting it with my ridiculously cheap outfits. If you have an account, let's be friends! ♥ :o)

P.S. I am now officially caught up with this season of Gossip Girl! xD

In case it was not already obvious, I am a gemini (June 19th!). Here is some information I found on the astrological sign, I always just love how accurate they tend to be! If you want to find facts on your sign, go here, and tell me if it was accurate for yourself! :)

"Gemini, the sign of the Twins, is dual-natured, elusive, complex and contradictory. On the one hand it produces the virtue of versatility, and on the other the vices of two-facedness and flightiness. The sign is linked with Mercury, the planet of childhood and youth, and its subjects tend to have the graces and faults of the young. When they are good, they are very attractive; when they are bad they are more the worse for being the charmers they are. Like children they are lively, and happy, if circumstances are right for them, or egocentric, imaginative and restless. They take up new activities enthusiastically but lack application, constantly needing new interests, flitting from project to project as apparently purposelessly as a butterfly dancing from flower to flower. To them life is a game which must always be full of fresh moves and continuous entertainment, free of labor and routine. Changing horses in the middle of the stream is another small quirk in the Gemini personality which makes decision making, and sticking to a decision, particularly hard for them.

Since they lack the quality of conscientiousness, they are apt to fight a losing battle in any attempts they make to be moral (in the widest sense of the word). Their good qualities are attractive and come easily to them. They are affectionate, courteous, kind, generous, and thoughtful towards the poor and suffering - provided none of the activities resulting from expressing these traits interferes too greatly with their own lives and comforts. They quickly learn to use their outward attractiveness to gain their own ends, and when striving for these they will use any weapon in their armory - unscrupulous lying, and cunning evasiveness; escaping blame by contriving to put it on other people, wrapped up in all the charm they can turn on. In their better moments they may strive to be honest and straightforward, but self-interest is almost always the victor. If things go against them, they sulk like children.

Also like children, they demand attention, admiration, and the spending on them of time, energy and money, throwing tantrums if they don't get what they want. They reflect every change in their surroundings, like chameleons, and can become pessimistic, sullen, peevish and materialistically self-centered if circumstances force them to struggle in any way. If the conditions of life become really adverse, their strength of will may desert them entirely. They can become uncertain of themselves, either withdrawn, or nervously excitable worriers, sullenly discontented, hard and irritable, with "Self" looming ever larger in their struggles. On the other hand their versatility can make them very adaptable, adjusting themselves to control the world around them by means of their inherent ingenuity and cleverness.

Most Gemini have a keen, intuitive, sometimes brilliant intelligence and they love cerebral challenges. But their concentration, though intense for a while, does not last. Their mental agility and energy give them a voracious appetite for knowledge from youth onward, though they dislike the labor of learning. They easily grasp almost everything requiring intelligence and mental dexterity, and are often able to marry manual skills to their qualities of mind. Their intellect is strongly analytical and sometimes gives them so great an ability to see both sides of a question that they vacillate and find it hard to make decisions. But their intelligence may very well be used to control and unify the duality of their natures into a most efficient unit. If faced with difficulties, they have little determination to worry at a problem until they find a solution - they will pick the brains of others. In their intellectual pursuits, as in other departments of their lives, they risk becoming dilettantes, losing themselves in too many projects which they follow until they become difficult.

In love they are fickle, not intentionally so but because of the basic inconsistency of their emotional nature, which has an amoral aspect to it. Their is a side to Geminians which can become deeply involved emotionally, and another, hostile to sentimentality, which stands back from a romantic situation, laughing at it and the protagonists in it, including themselves while analyzing it intellectually. Gemini subjects take nothing seriously. So, in love, in spite of their temporary depth of feeling, for the intensity of involvement lasts only while it is new, they are superficial, light-hearted, cool, flirtatious and unimaginative in the understanding of the pain they may give others. They like intrigue, the excitement of the chase, but once they have caught the prey, they lose interest and look around for the next creature to pursue. In less serious situations they make witty, entertaining companions, good acquaintances rather than friends. Even at their worst they are never dull - there is usually playfulness below the surface, and they can be brilliant conversationalists - but they can also be quarrelsome, prattlers, boasters, liars and cheats.

Geminians can be successful in many walks of life though their general characteristics tend to make them unreliable. They are often skilled manipulators of language, in speech and writing, and may be: debaters, diplomats (though in politics they are more interested in theory than practice), orators, preachers (brilliant rather than profound), teachers, authors, poets, journalists, or lawyers. In business any work which combines quick-wittedness with a change of surroundings suits them; working as a traveling salesperson, brokerage work, or dealing with the public in any capacity is right up their alley. Because they are dispassionate, logical, rational and analytical they make good scientists, especially in the fields of medicine and astronomy. They can also make excellent members of the Armed Forces, for they take danger no more seriously than anything else and can earn themselves a reputation for devotion to duty and heroic acts. In the arts they may excel in music, painting and sculpture. They make good psychic researchers of a sceptical kind. Negatively they can degenerate into confidence tricksters, thieves and even adepts in the black arts."

Then let's try to give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to 8 bloggers that in turn must make the same thing and put this text."

School Outfits; Day 003-006

Sorry for my lack of posts! And thank you to everyone for the lovely comments on my last post~ :) School may have just started, but I've already been busy, busy! Here are some (crappy) photos of my outfits, excuse the quality, I had to resort to using my cell phone.


A rave shirt snagged from Charlotte Russe with a huge scoop neck on the back, so I wore a neon pink tank for extra coverage. The photo does a horrendous job as my hips look huge, but according to the mirror I looked cute? :P


Not much to say about this outfit. As you can see I am quite determined in making my heart-shapped sunglasses from Forlove my trademark statement. Top is a ruffled, button down blouse from Target, shorts H&M, and heels purchased at a random store in Vegas! ;)


I slightly cringe at this outfit. It was pep rally day, and the senior class was instructed to wear red so we would stand out...and this red too-long-to-be-a-shirt-but-too-short-to-be-a-dress was all I had. I put on some black sorts and tied it together with a studded belt, but added my contradictory flair by wearing my white ballet flats and white bow snagged from our drama department's costume closet while helping to clear it out. Hehe~


Oh Friday!...what would end up being the beginning of the most crazy and fantastic weekend I have experienced in a long time! The layered top was on clearance at H&M, along with the shorts and flats. Oh dear, I feel like an advertisement fro H&M...I need to find new stores!

a sporadic moment of vainity.

click for bigger image.

My sister and I were so bored last night that we set up our own mini "photoshoot", but unlike the usual ones of full body, outside in nature, and random outfits, we tried for a more emotional look, if you will. Which meant dramatic make up and an off the shoulder top, to resemble a bare vulnerability, and lots of editing on Picasa. I'm slightly embarrassed because I don't usually post these pictures...but I do like how they turned out. What do you think?
