Cold Nights Ahead

This post has nothing to do with the cold. In fact, it's just the opposite. True, cold nights are ahead of us (to those of you who live in the Midwest!) but this post revolves around my trip to the west side.. which happened in October. *ahem*, I know I'm horrible at staying current in the blog world but please bear with me. :) I'll promise to keep posting!

So, as I was saying.. I took an impromptu mini getaway with my manfriend to the lovely SoCal to visit family, friends, and the glamorous cities. We were in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and OC the majority of the time. Here are some photos of our quick trip, unedited.

Being a total stalker shooting this amazingly tatoo-ed, colorful, chic gal at the Griffith Observatory!




My go-to J.Crew sandals


Flower in front of my aunt's house

  She plants pomegranates too!


Yes, I love her.


This is part one. I'll add more photos soon!

Stay tuned.

GR Artprize 2011

As the whole world may or may not know, Grand Rapids Art Prize occurred Sept 21 through Oct 9 this year.
It's nice to see GR so full of life with people filling the sidewalks, buildings, and indulging in our city's culture, unique art pieces - some great and some questionable. hehe. 
Enjoy the photos!

Happy Halloween!

Here's an entry for Stylemint's October T Moment Contest!

Rough Sketches

My best friend Chelsea and I have made an oath to explore our hidden talents (anything and everything) at least once a week. Chelsea's also known as the lady behind Chi-tography. :)

A few weeks ago we raided our ancient art materials, sketchbooks, and drew inspiration from various fashion magazines (mostly W) I had lying around my room.

The result?...

 I tie leopard print and anything high-end to the lovely ADR.
(Charcoal & graphite pencil)

Unfinished but can you guess who this is? 
She models this Lanvin dress exquisitely.. I probably did not do it justice.

'Til next time!

Don't Go Sweet Summer

Can you believe it's almost time for autumn? Time for leaves to fall. Time for the rush of cold air to sneak up on us. A part of me is ready for the extra layers of clothing... but come on now, I still have yet to make some more use of my swimming gear!

On another note, I thought I'd share some photos with you that were taken by my long-time, talented and lovely friend, Chi.
Her photography (chi-tography) goes beyond words, really. But I'll try to describe it in three:




See for yourself here and here.
She has an eye for all things beautiful and can make ordinary things come to life. For instance, I certainly don't have the height or look of a model, but I always feel like one when she's shooting me.

Here's a photo entry she took of me to submit to StyleMint's July T Moment Contest. I had such a blast! Felt like I was reliving my childhood years. :)

Wearing: Men's tri-blend t-shirt from the Gap, Alexander Wang quilted linen shorts, Banana Republic magnetic chain bracelet, vintage red leather wallet, Prada slingback leather pumps

Divine Garden

I am in absolute awe with gardens, especially when they contain my favorite summer florals - hydrangeas! Oh, and not to mention, my manfriend's mother grows all her veggie here too. Fresh herbs and vegetables for the summer. So crisp and SO good!

Beautiful blooming hydrangeas. 

 Admiring the beautiful garden. Wearing a Bershka tank, vintage earrings and skirt.

This pic reminded me of FernGully

I loved that movie for its beautiful rainforest and whimsical characters. Kind of forgot the storyline though. Maybe I'll re-watch it one of these days. Goodness, I haven't event watched Avatar yet! So many movies, so little time.

Photos taken by the boy.

Happy Summer!

Heat, Hat and Sun

Hey, long legs.
I wish!
With the weather being like it has been lately (hot, hot, hot), I've found myself experimenting with my wardrobe summer essentials through various pieces. Versatility is my mantra.

I'm wearing a men's straw fedora, Marc by Marc Jacobs sunnies, Theory Bergdorf Goodman skirt turned shirt-dress, vintage Christian Dior belt, old Old Navy shorts, Gap bow sandals.

Photos taken by the manfriend. :)

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! What do you wear for those hot summer days/nights?
