Top, Izzue / Shorts, DIY Cutoff / Boots, Taiwan Boutique

Simple, casual, breezy and comfortable outfit with a revamped basic tee. It's one of those buffet-appropriate yet fabulous shirts. These boots, which I discovered for 10USD in a night market in Taiwan, were the perfect addition to my shoe closet, a design that I had been on the lookout for so long. What a steal.

Wanted List: Phillip Lim for Target

Pictures from Paperblog

I discovered this yesterday and I'm hooked. Above are all the pieces I want... the most. I actually would not mind having every piece of this collection sitting in my wardrobe at this moment! Phillip Lim captured a minimalist yet chic aesthetic in his Target collection, and I can't wait to see (and buy) the whole line.

September 15, mark the date!

SS Sale Gems

Jacket, Zara / Jeans, Izzue

I think the picture speak louder than words for this one. I love sale finds.

Dress, Thailand market / DIY Studded Chucks, Converse / Bag, Zara

My heart's in Hong Kong, and summer. I love this weather, I love this city, and I can't believe it's almost the end of summer as I await to return to New York City to start my sophomore year. This look pretty much exemplifies me: beautiful embroidery, short short dresses mixed with boyish features (eg sneakers), with a pow wow bag. And on a sunny day, of course a pair of shades. I'm also still getting used to this middle part, but with my hair growing out, this is the only way it doesn't look ridiculous (I hope).

Hope you're all having a good day!

From sleeve to sleeveless blouse

End product!

I love me some thrifted tops, but sometimes the fit just ain't so hot. This in particular had a dreadful sleeve, so I decided to hack it off! But now that I'm not the same teenage girl from the past, I felt like unfinished woven fabrics were no longer acceptable to wear, so I decided to hem the arm hole. Not my best/neatest work, but I'm so glad that I am able to wear this top now! I'm just in love with the print. So, so beautiful.

a hundred tigers

Top, Taiwan Shilin Market / Trousers, Forever 21 / Shoes, / Bag, Japanese Boutique

Tigers and tiger prints are consuming my every thought these days... like the Kenzo sweater, or these tiger Vans. Here I'm sporting a crop top purchased from my vacation in Taiwan at the Shilin market. The flats, which are inevitably Valentino inspired, are unfortunately a size too small and so my feet cannot function properly after wearing these babies. But doesn't matter, they're too beautiful.


Wanted List: Fall 13

Obsessed: Black Summer

Clutch, Hong Kong / Antigona Bag, Givenchy
Fringe Skirt, Zara / Blazer, Hong Kong 
Loafers, Zara / Ankle Boots, Taiwan / Pointed Boots, Zara 

I don't even know what it is... maybe the fact that since it's summer, everyone on the street is in color. It's almost a little too much. Needless to say, my wardrobe is turning darker as the days get warmer. Oh, I'm obsessed with Zara as you can probably tell. I'm also enjoying more versatility, as my existing wardrobe is, in my opinion, a hot mess.

Until next time!
