Happy Chinese New Year! 新年快乐! Gong Hei Fat Choi! Now I got really excited this year about Chinese New Year. I was dying to go to San Francisco today since I wanted to be around all the festivities, but the weather was incredibly crummy to take BART (the subway) all the way there to just splash in puddles all day. I didn't let this stop me for dressing up in red and just prancing around the city wishing everyone a prosperous year of the Dragon. Yeah I know I'm not Chinese, or Asian but that didn't stop me from getting all excited.
I am officially a Second Semester Senior now. This means that my Senioritis will reach a full effect. That means I have a lot more time to post some cool posts for all of you guys. This second semester is said to go by so fast due to all the fun we will be having, and so excited with all the acceptance letters we will receive. I'm going to try to stop talking about college until I get accepted somewhere due to all the anxiety I get just thinking about it. I have to deal with my mom's "depression" since she is having second thoughts about me leaving far away, across the country. She's just really so sad about her losing her favorite child. (hehehehe)
I just wanted to layer my red shirt so badly.
Collared shirt is gifted, H&M crew-neck shirt, black thrifted jeans, thrifted boots.
Phone case is from Society6 and necklace on hand was my grandma's
Since I saw this necklace I fell in love with it. It was my version of Givenchy's thorn crown necklace. This necklace was my grandma's until the pendant that was attached broke. She left it at our house, and I rescued it from being thrown away. I always feel like she is close to me when I wear it.
Instead of going to San Francisco, Marissa made me crepes and we out to eat at Sonics for the first time. I went crazy ordering all the sides they had! Our "carhopper" was super weird and kind of scary but he was nice. His name was Joe.
You probably already knew, but I have completely become obsessed with Lana Del Rey. I first heard her music back during the summer, but her new releases really have me worshiping her. I love her urban babe look, and it goes so well with her breathtaking looks. I loved her on SNL don't care for all the criticism. I was upset with Perez Hilton's remarks since he basically told people publicly not to buy to "the hype", and I don't care what it looks like but to me it seems like he is trying to ruin her. Which doesn't make sense to his whole "new change", in which he promised not to be such an asshole anymore. Some people never change, but I guess everyone is entitled to their opinion. I cannot possibly wait no more for her album. I listen to her EP every morning.
The more pictures I see of this campaign, the more I fall in love with it. My friend Karinna and I recently had a little discussion about mint prom dresses, and I wished she could wear these Louis Vuitton dresses.
Since Alexa Chung is the Queen of the collared-shirt-under-the-crew-neck combo, she was my inspiration. I just feel this combo is such an easy style outfit for a regular day. Alexa Chung is featured in Vogue's February 2012 issue.
Givenchy's campaigns demonstrate everything I love about this season's fashion in a couple pictures. The way my collared shirt hung out from top shirt made me think of Givenchy's man-skirts.
This was my me while I thought about how only like 3 people from outside my house would see me in my Chinese New Years outfit.
I just wanted to share with all of you that Jane Keltner de Valle, from Teen Vogue, recently saw my Elle Fanning post, and said she fancied it! I basically died a little when she tweeted that to me. This was a short little post, but I have posted quite a lot this month that I ran out of things to talk about. Well I have a lot of ideas, but I'm saving them all for next month! Prepare for all my fashion week favorites soon!
