A Few Favs

From NYC fashion week..

Alexander Wang

I love these colors and the way the dress fits. I love the crop tops in this show too.

Anna Sui's collection was as beautiful as always, but my absolute favorite piece was

I loved all of the patterns and colors, and that her models were smiling. Oh, and the shoes were amazing, and really made me wish I could have funky shoes to match every outfit perfectly too! I guess gladiators are sticking around, blah, but they are a lot prettier it seems.

The Sabyasachi collection was amazing. Everything was so gorgeous.

This collection had the perfect balance of structure and flow. The skirts that looked like scales reminded me of the children's book The Rainbow Fish.

Like I said, it was only a few. Runways aren't really my thing, street fashion holds a lot more of my love.

Besides that..
I loved Pink's dress at the MTV Video Music Awards

Wow. It kinda made me want to watch every Tim Burton film in existence, but I think that's why I loved it so much.

Tonight is one of my friend's last nights before he leaves for UC Davis, so we're throwing a little going away party. He's one of my only friends who is leaving, and we're going to miss him like crazy!
I think later I'll blog about my friend's style, oh and that I just got my AP magazing and am really excited that both Broken Social Scene and Postmark Twain are talked about.

What I Wore

This is what I wore today. Yay new scarves to replace old ones eaten by the Seattle airport!


Tuesday, September 9, 2008


So every day I have school I have a process. I wake up and drive to the nearest trolley stop (45 min away) and hop on the trolley which looks like this.

On the trolley I get to experience a huge clash in cultures. From hobos to people who just don't want to find parking at SDSU to people who are going to work in suits. Every day it's a new experience and new people sit near you, and some even make polite (or intrusive) conversation. Today on the way to school I sat by this girl with a great bob hairstyle and brilliant blue eyes, and a lady who was knitting two white rectangles. The knitting lady kept accidentally bumping the girl with the bob with her two giant knitting needles. It was quite comical. Then on the way home I sat by a man with large work boots on. He got on the trolley at the college, so I was thinking to myself who would wear work boots to college, but I wore my Docs yesterday so I guess I had no reason to question his boots. There was one woman who interested me as well, she was wearing baggy boyfriend-style jeans, a slouchy tank top, and sandals. This woman had wavy long dark blonde hair and a nose and lip piercing. She was one of those women who eminate "toughness" and that girls can do anythign boys can do. She probably assumed my looks were of distain instead of admiration, but who knows. I love women who dress like that, they make me happy, that whole "yes, I'm a vegan and I can kick your ass" look is awesome. Also, there is this girl who rides the same trolley home as I do on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and I'm determined to find her thoughts on fashion entered somewhere on the internet. This girl obviously knows what's going on, so she must have a lookbook or a blog or something that I'm dying to read. She has the cutest haircut that is always perfect. Also she lines her lips perfectly with a dark burgundy color and it looks fabulous. She's always listening to music and dressed impeccably. She reminds me of The Wandering Alchemist except her hair is a bit longer and thicker. Today she wore a cream colored lace top that was to die for. I know I sound like a creeper, but you really start paying more attention to people while you're sitting in a confined area with them for fourty minutes of your life.
Speaking of noticing people, the girl that sat next to me in Psych had some problems. She comitted one of the #1 offenses in my book... she was wearing tights as pants. Now normally this girl is probably pretty fashionable, because she was wearing cute leather slouchy motorcycle inspired boots, a hat with a leopard print scarf tied around it, and a shirt with lacey details that was a bit too short to be a dress. If it was longer I would have given her praise, but the tights just bugged me. She was one of those talkers too. The one who is always raising their hand in class, so the teacher thinks that the people sitting around that person would be as pleased talking as they are. Wrong. I was just checking Email and catching up on Othello Sparknotes, but was getting paid way too much attention to by the teacher for being in a class of over 500. However this girl befriended me and I'm sure this won't be the last time I sit by her, or the last time she wears tights as pants. I wouldnt mind the first if she quit the second. Oh well.
So this blog entry has been very void of pictures. So here are some I found on flickr of the trolley.

Oh and I found this picture randomly too..

When I'm old I WILL be a red hat lady. They are amazing.

And in other news, my trolley stop is near the mall, so yesterday I stopped at F21 and bought two charcoal colored shirts and a lovely floral skirt. This is what I wore today

Now I must clean my room, gah it may take hours.

Fabulous Things

are happening in San Diego. Forver 21 expanded into five times the size it was before, and even added on.. a boy's department! AAAANNND... an H&M is finally coming to our city. It's opening right across the way from the oversized F21 in the Fashion Valley mall, which is just a couple trolley stops away from my college! Also, this mall just added an American Apparel (which I've already visited three times in the past two weeks) and I'm applying at Geppetto's and Nordstrom down there. (though the online assesment Unicru for Nordstrom is wack) I think I might have a good chance at the Nordstrom job because my mother worked there for years. Needless to say I was a pretty fashionable baby.
Today was my father's 52nd birthday, so to celebrate we went out to dinner and I got to wear my new oxfords. I'm so in love with them.

Oh and go listen to the band Owl City. They became a complete hit in all of my town today, idk why but it was the fastest spreading love for a band I have ever witnessed. One of my friends toled me about it, then an hour later I heard another girl who proclaimed her love for them saying that her friend Chris told her. They are so pretty sounding. They are pop electronica at it's best. Well, besides Freezepop :D

Today we went back to school shopping and I got three amazing pairs of shoes:

Amazing Doc Marten's, pretty black suede oxfords, and cute floral flats. The perfect shoe for almost every occasion, because I have pretty much destroyed my silver Steve Madden Flats.
Also, I was channeling the Marie Claire atricle I posted while shopping today. This is one of the outfits I purchased minus the shorts and belt:

Do you like it?
(where I bought everything can be found here:

It's 4:28 am in Cali, so good night// good morning! <3

Every Monday - Thursday I have to wake up three hours prior to my classes (9 on mon + wed and 8 on tues + thurs) then drive 1/2 an hour to Santee where I hop on the trolley and that takes another 30 minutes (if I'm lucky) to get to school. I hate it so much.
I'm taking Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, Oral Communication, and Intro to Lit. So I have a pretty heavy load too. The homework consists of a lot of reading. Tonight I have to read Othello and summarize it, as well as read a chapter in the books for each other class. But I did find time today to take some picture's with the neighbor's dog Zoe for lookbook.

I went shopping with my boyfriend for his 19th birthday yesterday and we discovered that brand new to our mall is an H&M, an Anthropologie, and an American Apparel. It was like all my wishes were coming true. (okay that was a little over dramatic) Regardless, it was a pretty amazing discovery. When we went into AA I was looking at the long shirt dresses and an employee came over and asked what was wrong, and they only had XS and M, which caused me a huge dilema because I am normally a small. The boy rushed to the back to look for more, but sadly came back empty handed. So he offered to let me try on both, and I discovered that the extra small was still a little large fitting, and I usually like things more snug than not, even if loose is the style. Then I guess while I was in the dressing room the boy who was helping me told another worker that I was pretty, and my boyfriend got pretty upset. But the whole rest of the time we were in the mall, and even today I've been saying "I have an AA boyfriend." I think it's pretty cool. But besides that, I really like the way this dress fits, and I also bought another one of the skirts with pockets in black. Tomorrow my mother is taking me back to the mall so hopefully I can actually accomplish more back to school shopping. (I've already been promised Doc Marten's, the black ones) My current obsession though is with black lace. I want to layer it in every way possible. It creates such a delicate yet edgy vibe which makes me happy.
Oh, and my new booties finally arrived:

I love them!

Well, homework (and a peach) is calling.
