Sun Dec 28th - Happy Post Holidays!

Oh my! I haven't posted in so long! Well the holidays has been a crazy rush of events and gatherings for me, among other things. I really hope that everyone out there has enjoyed this season with the ones they love and cherish the most! (Even if it doesn't turn out to be as ideal as it may originally sound.)

Christmas for me was uneventful. But it was almost exactly how I would have preferred it to be. A nice relaxing night with my siblings (and my sister who flew in from New York!) making a gingerbread house and mulling by the Christmas tree.

In terms of my own fashion, I've been a bit on the lacking side. The chill, as much as it may be mild in comparison to other climates, has gotten me lethargic and unwilling to move out of the comforts of my own cozy home. I did get some considerable shopping done at Urban Outfitters luckily, and I'm planning my next thrift raid before heading back to San Diego next week. So hopefully more updates are to come! I hope you all are having a great and fashion-forward holidays!

Such Poor Udating Skills, Bug!

Yes yes, I know. My updating has been poor and commenting next to none.

But my laptop's hard drive pretty much fried last week and it was such a disaster in some ways, and a blessing in others. It was finals week so I had to get the distraction away anyways, but it was a hassle to lug around a dead 'top. It's getting fixed now, and it's only a matter of time before I'm back with all the free time I previously had!

How has everyone's winter fashion so far? It's actually getting relatively frigid here in California, so I can't even imagine the chill that's penetrating the other parts of the world! Personally I'm cozying up with scarves and thicker coats, although I still stay true to my vintage blue Lacoste cardi. (I'm planning on taking advantage of my thrifted black Miu Miu blazer though!)

And to part you all with at least some form of small inspiration, I present to you Alessi's Ark.

How utterly quaint is this music video?!

Post Thanksgiving Weekend

Finally I'm free from schoolwork! Unfortunately my quarter isn't over yet, but I've gotten most of the stressful work done and over with.

How was everyone's thanksgiving weekend? For everyone in America, did you guys get any good Black Friday loot?

I went on kind of a binge with everything. Stopped by various spots including Urban Outfitters, Jet Rag vintage, Forever 21, and of course my typical thrift shops. Overall I did spend a lot of money, but I do love my loot! One of my better finds is this darling black Miu Miu blazer for only $2.50 at Working Wardrobes. And of course, my mother found it first and thought that it'd work with my wardrobe. My biggest disappointment was in Forever 21. Their sales were hardly considered sales. Buy One get One Free on SALE items? Their sale items are always of poorer quality, whether through abuse of just neglect, and there was not much of a selection at all. Urban Outfitters had some nice goodies for $10, including leather skimmers and this adorable printed romper.

But the weather over the weekend was nice. It was chilly at some point, but it was also very warm in the way that makes you glow, rather than sweat.
